Independence Day has arrived, and 4th of July sales are now live across a wide variety of retailers. Sandwiched between Memorial Day and Prime Day, the 4th of July holiday weekend is one of the best times of the year to score a bargain and this year is proving no different.

There are seriously big savings available across dozens of different products, but it’s TVs and home appliances that are seeing the biggest price drops. For example, Amazon is offering TVs from just $89, with premium models also on sale. This includes an LG OLED TV for just $739, which is the cheapest OLED TV deal we’ve seen.

Meanwhile, Best Buy, Samsung and Lowe’s are all slashing the prices of various home appliances, from microwaves to refrigerators, as well as countertop gadgets such as blenders and air fryers. Plus, 4th of July mattress sales are drastically reducing the prices of quality sleep surfaces from the likes of Nectar, Purple, Saatva and more.

This year we’re being even more selective about which deals we highlight. We understand that due to the rising cost of living many households are looking to stretch their budget further, so we’re only flagging sales on devices that we’ve tested and recommend or that offer the best value.

Whatever’s on your wishlist, there is likely a 4th of July deal for you. So follow along with our 4th of July deals live blog to make sure you don’t miss a single saving.

Hello, welcome to the Tom’s Guide 4th of July live blog for 2022! Here we’ll be bringing you all the best 4th of July sales and deals throughout the entire day, and maybe even a little beyond that as well. 

This year, we're being more selective than ever with the deals we spotlight. The spiraling cost of living means that households across the country are tightening their belts, so getting the biggest saving possible has never been more important. So, with that in mind, let’s kick off with the cheapest OLED TV deal we’ve ever seen. 

Right now, you can score this LG 48-inch OLED TV for just $739 at Amazon. That’s a $460 saving compared to its full retail price, and it’s easily one of the strongest 4th of July sales so far. If you're in the market for one of the best OLED TVs available, look no further, because the LG A1 OLED is a set that's hard to beat.

The best 4th of July mattress sales can save you hundreds of dollars on our favorite beds, and right now our top pick for the best budget mattress just got even cheaper. Nectar is taking $399 off all sizes of mattresses, and if that wasn’t enough you’ll even get a free bedding set worth $399 with any purchase.  

The Editor's Choice Nectar Memory Foam mattress offers tremendous value for the money and holds a spot in our best mattress guide. In our Nectar Memory Foam mattress review, we found that it's very comfortable (thanks to its five layers of memory foam) and it offers excellent pressure relief around your shoulders, hips, and back. We also love that Nectar offers an impressive 365-night trial and a forever guarantee, so you’ll rest easy with this deal.

No holiday sales event is complete without a discount on Apple AirPods Pro, and 4th of July sales are certainly no exception. Right now, AirPods Pro has dropped to $179 at Amazon. That's a $69 saving compared to its usual price of $249. 

I can personally recommend these wireless earbuds as I just upgraded to AirPods Pro last month. Plus, thanks to this deal you can also avoid making the same mistake as me when I paid almost full retail price for my set. 

In our AirPods Pro review we praised these flagship earbuds thanks to the high-quality noise cancellation with Transparency Mode, the snug-in-ear design and spatial audio support. The AirPods Pro has comfortably earned a spot as one of the best wireless earbuds on the market, offering one of the most immersive audio experiences around.

If you're looking for a solid laptop for not very much money, then Best Buy is offering this Asus 14-inch Chromebook on sale for $149. That's a massive 50% off its regular retail price of $299. 

As you'd expect for its (relatively) cheap price, this isn't a powerhouse laptop but it does still have plenty to offer. Unlike most Chromebooks, it packs a large 1080p 14-inch LCD. Plus, it's powered by a Celeron N3350 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 32GB eMMC. 

If you're in need of a laptop that is suitable for the everyday basics and won't break the bank, then this is an excellent pick.

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Here's an excellent deal on one of the best PS5 games out there. Practically the entire Tom's Guide staff raved about Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart when it launched last year, and it's currently just $39 at Best Buy — that's a $30 saving. 

This action-adventure game sees everybody's favorite Lombax and miniature robot return for an all-new intergalactic quest to stop the sinister Dr. Nefarious. But this time they've got help in the form of new characters Rivet and Kit. In many ways, Rift Apart feels like the game the PS5 was born to play as it takes full advantage of the console's next-gen features. 

If you're fortunate enough to own a PS5, then this title definitely needs to be in your collection. And at just $39, now is the perfect time to jump in and enjoy this dimension-hopping adventure.

The summer is a great time to get some cleaning done around the house, but with this deal, you can let one of best robot vacuums do the hard work for you while you just enjoy the sunshine!

Right now the Anker Eufy 25C is on sale for $149 at Walmart. That's $100 off its full retail price of $249. The Anker Eufy 25C is one of the least-expensive robot vacs we've seen, but that doesn't mean it's lacking in features.

This smart vac can be controlled via a smartphone app or with voice commands. It features a triple brush cleaning system and can clean both carpets and hard floors. Best of all, it has built-in drop-sensing technology that prevents it from falling down a flight of stairs.

MacBook Pro M1 deal

Hey, all! Louis here taking over the live blog for the next few hours. This weekend there was an epic deal on the MacBook Pro M1, which hit $999 at Best Buy. (It's expired, but I wrote about it here if you were lucky enough to grab it). Yes, there's a newer MBP M2 available, but $999 for the M1 MBP is pretty epic. Sadly, that deal is gone now and the 13 MBP M1 is now $1,049, which is still a decent sale, but not as exciting. 

Instead, I'm more excited about the M1 Pro-based MacBooks. They're both $200 off right now at Amazon and early tests have shown that the M1 Pro is faster at some tasks than the M1. To be fair, these MBPs have been cheaper before ($250 off), but $200 off is still a solid deal.

If you have a few appliances you need to upgrade, Samsung has a great mix-and-match sale where you can get an extra 15% off select appliances when you mix and match with a bespoke Samsung fridge. Eligible appliances include refrigerators, ranges, microwaves, washers, vacuums, and more.

The Fitbit Charge 5 is a brilliant little tracker, with a bright color screen and a number of features usually reserved for Fitbit's more premium watches — including an electrodermal activity sensor (EDA) and an electrocardiogram sensor (ECG). We named it the best Fitbit you can buy and it's now on sale for $129.

It wouldn't be a holiday without some Dell sales. The PC manufacturer has its excellent XPS 13 Touch on sale for $832. Unfortunately, no coupons stack with this sale, but it's still an excellent price for this base configuration. It packs a 13.3-inch 1080p touch LCD, Core i5-1135G7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.
