  • Labor Day 2020 is on Monday and there are tons of big sales happening this weekend to celebrate — none bigger, perhaps, than Amazon’s “BIG” Labor Day 2020 sales event.
  • If you want to save some money on delicious food when it comes time to take a break from shopping, you’ll find all the best deals and freebies from nationwide restaurant chains right here.

Labor Day weekend is upon us, which means two things. First, it means you’re going to spend today and tomorrow shopping sales like Amazon’s “BIG” Labor Day 2020 sales event and saving a ton of cash in the process. And second, it means you’re going to enjoy the long weekend and have a big barbeque on Monday. A socially distanced barbeque, that is. We’re still a couple of days away from barbequing though, and you have to eat in the meantime. Why not take advantage of some of the great Labor Day restaurant specials available at restaurants across the country? rounded up all the best Labor Day bargains and freebies from nationwide restaurant chains, and you’ll find them all listed down below. Restaurants have been hit particularly hard during the novel coronavirus pandemic, so you’re not just saving some money by taking advantage of these deals. Also, be sure to call around to your favorite local spots because they might be offering some solid Labor Day deals as well.
