OK, so this one isn't specifically a Labor Day deal but hear us out - Verizon has one of its best deals ever on the iPhone 13 right now. Specifically, the carrier is offering either the choice between the usual trade-in rebate of up to $800 (enough to cover the entire device cost) or an awesome buy-one-get-one-free multi-line saving. Both are incredibly strong choices right now and perfect if you're looking to either switch or renew an unlimited line. Note, new customers will also get an additional $200 as a welcome bonus if they come over to the carrier.

Pick up the Google Pixel 6a for its lowest-ever non-trade-in price at Best Buy this week.

Alternatively, get yourself an unlocked device at Amazon, which is also offering its lowest-ever price on the Google Pixel 6a. While it's not quite as good a deal as Best Buy's on paper, there's no commitment to sign up for a pricey plan at a big carrier with this deal, which makes it perfect if you're going to go with Mint Mobile, Visible, or any of the best prepaid plans on the market currently.
