The Fourth of July is over, but the sales and the barbecues are not! Whether you’re in the market for a new smart speaker or you are ready to commit to a new mattress or you’ve been waiting for this holiday to get a discount on large appliances, you’ve got ample opportunity to find amazing deals. To help you shop smarter, we’re bringing you the seven best deals and sales happening now at Amazon, Home Depot, and more.
1. Save 50%: The most popular Echo speaker
The Echo Dot is already the most affordable smart speaker in the Alexa family, but I always get so pumped to see it go on sale. Typically, Amazon discounts the Dot by $10-$20, but right now they’ve put it back at its Black Friday price. The third-generation Dot speaker came out late last year, and when it went on sale for 50% off, you better believe people bought tons of them. So much, in fact, that it went from readily available to back-ordered super fast. Right now, if you get one, it’ll ship right away. But with Prime Day coming up, I’m willing to bet that won’t last.

2. Save hundreds on a new mattress
There are loads of amazing mattress deals still happening for the Fourth of July, including this sitewide discount from the ever popular Casper. From Sunday, June 30 until July 8, you can save 10% on your purchase at Casper with the code “STRIPES.”
Casper’s line of foam beds provide great pressure relief and support to a range of sleepers. Their new hybrid mattresses continue the comfort the company is known for, with a bit of added bounce. Reviewed’s Editor-in-Chief has had his Casper for over three years and still swears by it.

3. Save $50: A brand new iPad Pro
Hold the phone. The iPad Pro is $50 off on Amazon right now. If you fancy yourself a budding digital artist or amateur photographer (or just like entertaining the idea that you could do those things), this beast of a tablet should be the perfect tool. Its 11-inch screen, massive 512GB memory, and nearly 10 hours of battery life also make it just as good as a computer if you only use yours for the basics anyway. This is especially true if you consider the portability and convenience of a tablet vs. a clunky laptop or a stationary desktop. The iPad pro originally cost over $1,100 and typically sells for around $1,000, so this rare discount has us excited.

4. Save up to $600: Awesome appliances at Home Depot
Just because it’s now July 5 doesn’t mean the wealth of Independence Day sales dries up. No, things are still in full-swing at loads of different retailers, but The Home Depot is the best place to start if you’re looking to get some great appliances at great discounts. They did away with pesky rebates this year, letting you save when you buy and saving you the hassle and wait of trying to get your rebate. We hand-picked some of the best deals on large appliances and more to help you start shopping.

5. Save $30: One of the first Instant Pot sales of Prime Day
The Instant Pot has turned pressure cooking into the trendiest way to prepare home-cooked meals of the last five years, and right now you can get the Instant Pot DUO Plus 9-in-1 for $10 more than the perennial favorite 7-in-1 Instant Pot, which is also on sale for $20 off (but if you want that model, we recommend waiting until Prime Day when it’ll surely be cheaper).
The 9-in-1 was once our favorite pressure cooker, and while we have found that the Ultra is the best of the best, this model is fantastic thanks to its preset options to make cake, eggs, and yogurt—yes, this thing really can do it all.
Get the Instant Pot DUO Plus60 6-qt. 9-in-1 Pressure Cooker for $89.99 (Save $30)
6. Save $2: This super popular clay mask
If you’re not all about those cloth face masks that make you look like a tiger but still want a great at-home spa experience, consider these clay healing masks. This brand is among the most popular cult beauty products on Amazon, with nearly 17,000 positive reviews. Yes, that number is right.
Clay masks, especially when you mix in a bit of apple cider vinegar, can help cleanse your pores, combat acne, and reduce the appearance of scars. Right now, you can get a 1-pound jar for under $10, which isn’t a huge discount, or the best price we’ve seen, but it is still a good deal if you’ve wanted to shake up your beauty routine.
Get the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask 1-lb. Tub for $8.76 (Save $2.19)
7. Under $30: Rechargeable flashlights
Flashlights sound like a boring purchase, until I tell you that these don’t require batteries. They’re USB rechargeable! Unreal. The LC40 (typically $20) would up being our favorite affordable flashlight, and the LC90 (typically $36) is the more powerful version, offering brighter light and a longer range. They’re both amazing and super handy to have in case of a power outage or just to find your keys under the bed. Right now through July 10, you can get them both for fantastic discounts.
- Get the Anker Bolder LC90 for $26.99 (Save $9) with the code “ANKERLITE”
- Get the Anker Bolder LC40 for $15.99 (Save $4) with the code “ANKERLC40”
