The holiday weekend is over, but there are plenty of 4th of July sales you can still get. Many retailers have extended their discounts on appliances, home items, and 4K TVs throughout the week. Plus, with Prime Day less than a week away, prices are bound to remain low. 

In terms of the deals themselves, TVs and home appliances are seeing the biggest price drops. Retailers like Amazon are offering smart TVs on sale for as low as $89. Premium TVs are also on sale and you can currently get an LG OLED TV for just $739 at Amazon (opens in new tab), which is the cheapest OLED TV we've ever seen. 

Meanwhile, Best Buy, Samsung, and Lowe's are offering price cuts on home appliances like microwaves, refrigerators, and washer/dryers. 

If you're shopping for a new bed, 4th of July mattress sales are taking hundreds of dollars off our favorite beds from the likes of Nectar, Purple, Saatva, and more. Mattress bases and bedding are also seeing big discounts. While it's true that you can find deals on mattress any given month, 4th of July deals tend to offer bigger discounts than your typical summer sale. 

That said, we understand that households are trying to watch their monthly expenses. So we're listing the best 4th of July sales on devices that we've tested, recommend, or offer the best value. Likewise, each 4th of July sale we list will be price checked, analyzed against that item's price history, and highlighted only if it's a good deal. Below you'll find a mix of current deals along with shopping tips to get the most out of your money.

How to find the best 4th of July sales

As with all holidays, Independence Day will be filled with both good and bad deals. But with a little diligence, it's possible to find the best 4th of July sales on the items you want. Here are our tips and guide to finding the best deals during the 4th of July. 

  • Always comparison shop: Practically every retailer offers 4th of July sales. As a result, we recommend that you always comparison shop — no matter what you're buying. If you're shopping for a new 4K TV, look at deals from Best Buy, Amazon, and Walmart. If you're in the market for new kitchen appliances, check out Kohl's, Amazon, Home Depot, and Lowe's. That way you'll see who has the lowest price on the item(s) you want. 
  • Use price tracking tools to weed out fake deals: Shoppers have an arsenal of tools to help them weed out bad 4th of July sales. One of our favorites is CamelCamelCamel (opens in new tab). Although it only works on Amazon, it can give you the price history on just about any item sold on Amazon. We find it especially helpful for tech items like iPads, 4K TVs, and more. 
  • Beware fake reviews: It's something every shopper does: We find something we want to buy and we google reviews for that item. However, shoppers should be very cautious with the reviews they read because there are a lot of fake or paid for user reviews out there. So if you're spotted a few 4th of July sales you're intent on buying, make sure you do your homework and rely on reviews from multiple users and not just users who leave glowing reviews. 

Prime Day vs. 4th of July sales

4th of July sales are a great opportunity to save money. However, now that we know when is Amazon Prime Day, shoppers may be wondering what holiday will offer the better sales. It's worth remembering that Prime Day deals come from Amazon only, whereas practically every retailer will offer 4th of July sales. If you're looking for a new Fire TV or new Echo, we strongly recommend you wait till Prime Day to make your purchase. Otherwise, rest assured that you're likely getting the better bargain on Independence Day.

4th of July sales and PS5 restocks

No holiday is complete without gaming deals and Independence Day is no exception. However, if you're hoping to find deals on next-gen consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X, it's unlikely you'll see major discounts. Sure, you'll see discounted bundles — especially on the Xbox Series X — but it's unlikely you'll see big price drops on standalone consoles. That said, Xbox Series X restock has gotten easier to find and stores like GameSpot and Microsoft have even offered refurbished consoles. 

As for the PS5, while we have seen an uptick in PS5 restock events this month, the console is still hard to score, which means there's zero incentive for retailers to discount it. Instead, keep an eye out for 4th of July restocks, which are more likely to happen.
