4th of July Sales (2019): 25 Best Tech Deals This Weekend


Well, it’s not Memorial Day, and it’s not quite Amazon Prime Day (that’s coming July 15), but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a ton of sales around for the Fourth of July. It’s easy to ignore some of the killer savings available this extended weekend. So, to make sure you get the biggest bang for your buck this Fourth of July, we’ve scoured the internet and collected some of the best sales and deals.

The first of which is one of our own. For the Fourth of July you can get one full year of WIRED Magazine and/or ad-free unlimited web access for $5. Subscribing directly supports the original reporting we do. Your login will work on-site and in the Google News and Apple News apps, among other places.

Updated Saturday, July 6: We updated pricing, added some deals, and struck out or cut some sold-out deals for the weekend. Originally published July 4.

Home & Kitchen

Instant Pot

The Fourth of July is the time to buy major (and minor) appliances. Who knew? Best Buy, Home Depot, and Lowe’s are cutting prices on everything from refrigerators all the way down to teeny-tiny Instant Pots.

Tablet, Computer, and Apple Deals


Mattress-in-a-Box Deals


Every one of our favorite foam and hybrid box mattresses are on sale during the Fourth of July. We’re featuring a few here, but please do check out the guide to learn more and find a mattress that suits your needs and budget.

  • The Allswell Queen Hybrid Mattress for $293 ($52 off): Use code FIREWORKS at checkout for the discount. The Allswell is our favorite budget mattress. Unlike cheapo contenders we tried like the AmazonBasics mattress and some by Zinus, the Allswell has individually-wrapped coils inside it. It felt as nice as mattresses two to four times as expensive.

  • Tuft and Needle Mint Queen Mattress for $945 ($200 off): The Mint is an odd mattress at first. It’s incredibly soft and cooling up top, but under that layer of soft foam are more that offer great support and pressure relief. It’s one of the coolest and most supportive mattresses we’ve tried.

Headphone and Audio Deals

Rounding out the Surface line, the new $349 Surface Headphones can summon Cortana and auto-pause audio when you take them off.


TV and Gaming Deals

Vizio E-Series TV


  • Xbox One X for $499 ($50 off): As Microsoft is quick to point out, the Xbox One X is the most powerful gaming console on the market; paired with a good 4K TV, it offers your eyeballs a truly lavish gaming experience. This version isn’t discounted from the normal price, but it comes with a free second controller.

  • Vizio 50-inch 4K HDR TV for $280 ($148 off): Vizio has made a name for itself over the past few years as a purveyor of stylish yet affordable flat-panel TVs and this one is no exception. This one isn’t quite as nice as the E Series and P Series that top our TV recommendations, but at this price it just has to have good picture quality, and it does. The 65-inch model ($450, $248 off) and this 70-inch E-Series ($778, $520 off) are also on sale. We also recommend you pick up a Roku. Like most TV makers, Vizio’s onboard streaming apps are not great.

Outdoors Deals

Hydro Flask

These outdoors deals are from Backcountry and other sources. Be sure to check our picks from REI’s huge 4th of July Sale. Those deals won’t last through the weekend, unfortunately.
