Best 4th of July sales and deals you can still get

4th of July sales

The holiday weekend is over, but 4th of July sales are still going strong. Most retailers have extended their 4th of July sales, which means you can still save from $100 to $1,000 off mattresses, 4K TVs, kitchen appliances, and smartwatches.

Some of our favorite 4th of July sales today include the MacBook Air M1 on sale for $899 at Amazon. In addition to being Apple's least-expensive laptop, the Editor's Choice MacBook Air is faster than ever thanks to its new Apple M1 processor, which leaves many Intel-based machines in the dust. Meanwhile, Dell has various gaming machines on sale from $849. The sale is particularly noteworthy as there are a few RTX 30-series rigs on sale from $849. Machines with this video card are perfect for casual and hardcore gamers alike. 

There are even some new post 4th of July sales to speak of. Woot has a fire sale on  the Microsoft Surface Duo, which is now on sale from $409 (that's over 60% off). 

If you're shopping for furniture, various Editor's Choice mattresses, such as the Nectar mattress, are on sale from $499. Some retailers are even throwing in free sleep bundles that include pillows, mattress protectors, and sheet sets. Make sure to check out our 4th of July mattress sales coverage for more deals. 

We've also spotted deals on the rarely discounted Apple Watch SE and up to $1,000 off Samsung's new line of 2021 4K QLED TVs. So before you start that Netflix binge, here are the best 4th of July sales you can still get from Best Buy, Home Depot, Amazon, and others.

Tips on finding the best 4th of July sales

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

  • 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. 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 of 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.
