Labor Day is on the horizon, which means now is a great time to take stock of your stuff. How's your entertainment setup looking? Your fall wardrobe? Your kitchen?
If you're finding spots in your space that can use a little bit of something new, listen up: Walmart is having a massive weekend-long sales event. We're talking discounts on TVs, headphones, vacuums, even that Instant Pot you've been thinking about splurging on.
Oh, and don't forget: A Walmart+ membership will tack on even greater savings. You can get yourself a free 15-day trial here, and a quick three-question survey will add on an additional two more weeks for a solid month's use. (And by the way, those without Walmart+ still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.)
Without further ado, here are the best weekend sales.
Best TV sales
The impending end of summer got you a wee bit sad? Sure, the temp's are going to drop, but take heart, for autumn is when the entertainment landscape heats up. Scads of new TV shows, summer blockbusters making their way to the small screen, and the NFL, NBA and NHL all back in action!. What better time to take your home-entertainment game to the next level? On sale for $648 (was $750), the Sony 49-inch 4K Ultra HD LED TV is the latest from the first name in home electronics. The massive 65-inch 4K display is vivid and detailed. Sony’s state-of-the-art Processor X1 powers this beast for true-to-life visuals, while HDR (High Dynamic Range) settings make sure the gridiron's nice and green and Succession's darker than ever.
And have we mentioned it's 49 inches wide? Shoppers just love its massive size. "I will never be able to watch a smaller TV again. The picture and sound are incredible," raved a happy customer. "I can't say enough great things about this TV. It feels like I'm at the movie theater! It also automatically signs in to all my applications after I log in with my Google account, and I can talk into the remote to control the TV. Love it!"
This 4K TV includes Android TV straight from Google. This means you’ll have instant access to popular streaming apps like Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, YouTube, Prime Video and many more. Oh, an you’ll get a wide range of gaming apps too. What's not to love?

Best headphone and earbud sales
Don't leave ear buds out of your fall entertainment-equipment upgrade. Here's a deal you don't want to miss. Apple's original AirPods are normally $159, and you won't often find them on sale, but right now Walmart has 'em for just $115 — one of the lowest prices we've ever seen.
That said, they're still on the pricey side compared with some true-wireless earbuds. So why pay extra? Well, for starters, AirPods are a snap to pair with your iPhone or iPad (though they work with Android devices as well), and they automatically do so whenever you take them out of the case. They also have in-ear detection, meaning your music will pause if you take an earbud out — and resume when you put it back. How cool (and energy-saving) is that? And oh yeah: AirPods are particularly great for teleconferencing calls, something to consider in these (still!) Zoom-dependent days.
For those of you who want active noise-canceling capabilities, a sweatproof design and support for wireless charging, look to the AirPods Pro, which Walmart currently have on sale for $190 — also one of the best deals on record.

Best video game sales
If you're over the age of 50 (or just a old soul with a mania for pop-culture nostalgia), you've probably got a soft spot for 1980s arcade games. How many Gen X weekly allowances were dropped into the likes of Donkey Kong, Galaga and Ms. Pac-Man? The mind boggles.
Speaking of that venerated hungry lady, here's your chance to bring home your very own arcade version: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Walmart has the Arcade1Up Ms. Pac-Man game with riser for $247. That's $133 off the regular price and the best deal to date on this cabinet.
For those unfamiliar with Arcade1Up's lineup, the games are 3/4-size replicas — not quite the big cabinets you remember, but faithfully recreated in every other way.
This one comes with a riser, which elevates it to a more comfortable height for standing. But if you prefer, you can ditch it and pull up a stool (or just let the kids or grandkids play — it's the right height for them).

In the spirit of still-summertime, how about celebrating your own personal Shark Week? On sale for $149 (was $299), the Shark ION Robot Vacuum RV750 is designed to tackle all sorts of household surfaces, unlike other devices that just lumber around, only to eventually, inevitably get stuck against a wall or under furniture.
This smart little guy uses a navigation system to map your home’s floor landscape, so it doesn’t bump into walls, scratch up furniture or plummet down stairs. With up to 90 minutes of battery life per charge, it can sweep up your hardwood floors and then switch to carpets and tiles on a dime, plus it can be controlled and scheduled via its smartphone app or Alexa. Just say the word and it'll do your bidding! Oh, and have we mentioned it 50 percent off?
“So far, so great! I really like this little machine and it does a wonderful job cleaning,” raved a five-star reviewer. “It comes around so many times that it makes it hard to leave anything behind. It's pleasantly quiet and was easy to set up. So glad I went with this product and not the competitors'. Worth every penny. I just don't know why I didn't buy it sooner!” Neither do we; what were you thinking?

Best style sales
We love a style that's part everyday basic and part daring pops of color and pattern. So imagine how psyched we are about this stunning top. It's mainly one solid color — choose from Black, Apricot, Coffee, Gray and Purple — but is delightfully accented with a quirky combo of stripes and leopard print on the sleeves. And it's long enough to cover your butt, so feel free to throw this one on over leggings!
Shoppers say the fit is true to size and flattering. Save 50 percent!

Best kitchen sales
We don't know about you, but that first nippy night of the summer sent our brains into reveries about the soups, stews, chowders and chilis soon to arrive on our dinnertime menus. This seemingly magical cauldron from the folks at Instant Pot can make the all happen, in addition to whipping up rice, yogurt, sautés and more, with hardly any effort on your part. In fact, the only thing you really have to do is drop your ingredients in, turn it on and let it work its magic. It can replace over seven other appliances in your home, plus the compact size won't eat up too much precious counter space.
"Absolutely LOVE this!" a shopper shared. "This made life so much easier for us on the days I am unable to cook. Toss it all in, frozen, raw, whatever. Set it, start it, done. Frozen thick-sliced pork chops with mushroom sauce and egg noodles took 15 minutes, and it was perfect!"

Best mattress and bedding sales
Speaking of refreshment: Don't you think it's time you brought a new player into your bed-linen game? Lucky for you, we found an on-sale coverlet set that's worth adding to your rotation. It comes with a quilt in a diamond weave, plus two identical pillowcases. It's available in 12 colors, too, so you can find one that matches your sheets (and overall bedroom decor) with ease.
"I was truly impressed with the high quality of this bedspread," one shopper noted. "For the price, I expected this product to not actually be stitch-quilted, but the usual heat-pressed fake stitching found on cheaper products. This bedspread is stitched beautifully and is very soft! It is a nice weight too."

Best pet sales
Along with all those memories of Summer 2021 you're bound to find a fiesta of fur left on your furniture by Fido or Sheba while you were out frolicking in the sun. So listen up: This nifty little gadget picks up pet hair like a pro, minus the sticky, hard-to-peel-off sheets. Instead, it uses a brush to grab all the fur and deposit it inside the storage compartment inside the brush. Genius! Just roll it back and forth over the spot you're trying to clean, and voila — zero hair!
"I was shocked this works so well," a shopper shared. "My cat is a shedding machine, and this really picks up the hair!"
