1. Save $100: The best air fryer we’ve ever tested
Air fryers are one of the hottest kitchen accessories around these days. Why, you ask? Essentially, they allow you to enjoy all your favorite fried foods—french fries, chicken wings, you name it—without all the greasy oil or trans fats that come via traditional deep frying methods. The Philips Airfryer XXL is our favorite air fryer because of how crispy and succulent our food turned out every time we used it, plus, we enjoyed its extra-large size (it has a 4-quart capacity), which makes it ideal for big families or those who like to prep grub in large portions. Originally priced at $300, it drops to $199.95 at Walmart for Labor Day for $100 in savings.
2. A 29% markdown: This Pioneer Woman-approved Instant Pot
Food Network star Ree Drummond is a huge source of inspiration for foodies the world over thanks to her show, The Pioneer Woman. Since launching her own line of Instant Pots for Walmart in September 2018, gastronauts have had yet another reason to rejoice over Drummond thanks to her ultra-vibrant floral multi-cookers, which are instantly eye-catching and distinctive compared to the usual models. Right now, you can get this The Pioneer Woman Instant Pot LUX60 on sale in a Breezy Blossoms or Vintage Floral pattern. Originally priced at $99, it drops to $69 for $30 in savings. This designer pressure cooker is certainly a hit with Walmart shoppers: It has a 4.7-star rating on the site from more than 600 glowing reviews. One buyer raved: “I love The Pioneer Woman Instant Pot. It so pretty with the flowers. It cooks the food so much [faster than] a slow cooker.”
3. $90 off: This massive outdoor umbrella
Fun fact: The best time to shop for patio furniture isn’t in the spring or even in the summer: It’s at the end of the season, when retailers start to slash prices in order to get rid of extra inventory and make room for new seasonal products. Walmart is no different, and right now, you can get tons of savings in the store’s patio clearance section.
For example, you can get this Best Choice Products 15-foot by 9-foot double-sided outdoor umbrella with crank, originally $199.99, for $109.99 in off-white or green for a savings of $90. This 4-star rated shade covering has nearly 400 positive reviews from Walmart shoppers, with one noting: “This patio umbrella from Best Choice Products is the perfect addition to my yard! There was hardly any assembly required because all I had to do was screw the pole into the canopy.”
4. Save $100: This top-rated smart robot vacuum
Shopping for a smart robot vacuum that will make short work of dust, dirt and other debris that has accumulated on your floors? Say hello to the top-rated Shark ION Robot Vacuum R75, which is designed to work on all surfaces and hit hard-to-reach areas, like under the sofa and along wall edges. This unit, which was originally priced at $299, is on sale for $199 for $100 in savings. With nearly 1,000 positive reviews on Walmart’s site and a 4.4-star rating, this high-powered machine features three brushes (so it can work just as well on carpets as hardwood flooring) and is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. You can even schedule cleanings when you’re not home via the SharkClean app, which allows you to monitor this robot vac right from your smartphone. “I would absolutely recommend this to someone that needs a little help with pet hair or an elder that has trouble vacuuming,” wrote one happy shopper.
5. Down $19: This popular cooler with wheels
The end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of your outdoor adventures. If you’re planning a camping or RV trip, having a reliable cooler on hand is essential. Right now at Walmart, you can get this 4-star rated Coleman 50-quart heavy-duty cooler with wheels, originally $49, on sale for $29.82 for $19.18 in savings. Available in seven colors, this useful item boasts more than 300 positive reviews from Walmart shoppers and is designed to hold up to 84 cans. The company claims it can keep ice cool for up to five days in scorching-hot temperatures. While we haven’t tested this exact model, we did test the Coleman 54-can collapsible soft-sided cooler bag (originally $24.99, on sale for $18.65 for $6.34 in savings) and found it was able to keep in the cool temperature for just a little over 24 hours. However, there are notable differences between these units, as the 50-quart is plastic and features durable wheels, which reviewers say make it easy to transport especially across mountain or otherwise jagged terrain.
