More: The best Fourth of July sales you can shop right now
With so many Fourth of July sales and early Prime Day deals available right now, it can be hard to decide what to spend your hard-earned money on. Luckily, Reviewed is here to help you. We spend our days testing products in our labs and analyzing price history to make sure we are recommending only the best stuff to our readers, at the lowest possible price. Today we found some great discounts on noise-canceling headphones, french presses, smart TVs, and more.
1. 20$ off: The latest Apple Airpods
AirPods are almost as popular as iPhones these days, and it makes sense why. The hype around them is truly deserved, believe it or not. When we tested the best true wireless earbuds of 2019, we were floored by the impressive audio quality, which was leaps and bounds better than their wired counterparts. We also loved how lightweight they were, how seamlessly they connected to other Apple products, and their ultra-long battery life. Convinced you need a pair yet?
If you’re still on the fence, their current sale price should definitely sweeten the bowl. Right now, the latest Apple Airpods (which now feature wireless charging using a Qi-compatible charging mat) are $20 off at Amazon, making it the lowest price we’ve ever seen for them. This discount on Apple products is exceedingly rare, especially on Amazon, so if you’ve been eyeing a new pair of Airpods, this is a deal you don’t want to pass up.

2. Under $25: This ultra popular French press
Many coffee enthusiasts argue that French press coffee is in a world all of its own. Though it takes a little extra time and energy in the morning to brew, the stellar cup of joe it produces more than makes up for that fact. This French press by Bodum is one of the most popular and well-liked models on Amazon, with a near perfect 4.5-star rating from more than 4,000 reviews. It allows you to brew robust coffee in just 4 minutes, and features a stainless steel mesh filter which expertly extracts all the subtle flavors from your coffee grounds. Plus, you don’t have to spend a ton of money on it, because the Bodum Chambord is currently on sale for just $24, which is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for it. At this price, Bodum is certainly living up to their motto that “good design doesn’t have to be expensive.”

3. The Echo Dot at an amazing low price
Having a smart speaker somewhere in your home is like having a little helper around, all the time. For instance, with an Echo Dot in the kitchen, you can use it to set timers and add things to your shopping list while you’re busy prepping dinner for the fam. Not to mention all the other bonuses a voice assistant offers, like checking the news, traffic, and weather to name a few.
If you’re not quite sold yet on the benefits of owning an Echo, the third-gen. Dot is an affordable choice that serves as a great introduction to smart speakers. Not only is it the least expensive Echo, but it’s also $25 off right now, which is just a dollar more than the lowest price we’ve ever seen on Black Friday. While we expect the Dot to be back on sale for Prime Day, why wait when this price point is already so fantastic?

4. Under $240: The best headphones on the market
I’m just gonna flat out say it: the Sony WH-1000XM3 over-ears are the best headphones on the market, and no one can change my mind. They’re industry-leading, innovative, and smart—and they provide an immersive audio experience. They dethroned the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series IIs as our favorite noise-canceling headphones, because of one feature in particular that Sony calls “Adaptive Sound Control.” Basically what it means is that the headphones will determine the perfect level of noise-cancelation depending on your surroundings and adjust accordingly, whether you’re on a plane or walking down the street.
Not to be dramatic, but my jaw dropped when I saw the sale price of these headphones. Right now on Rakuten, you can get them in silver for just $237.96 if you register for an account and use the code “PRO15P” at checkout, which is by far the lowest price they’ve ever been available for. This might be the best deal I’ve ever seen in my time at Reviewed, and that’s the tea.

5. Half off: This unique and affordable apple slicer
You know what snack is always delightful? Sliced apples and peanut butter. I’d probably enjoy it more if chopping up and coring apples wasn’t such a pain. This apple slicer by Progressive takes all that annoyance away though, and gives you 16 even slices opposed to the standard 8, which are way too large in my opinion anyways. As a #1 best seller on Amazon, over 3,000 reviewers are obsessed with this gadget, which makes packing apples for lunch, or prepping them for a dessert such a breeze. Better yet, it usually retails for $12.99, but is currently only $6.85 on Amazon, which is such a steal.

6. Red, White, and Blue Savings Event: Save up to 40% at Home Depot
Home Depot is currently celebrating the Fourth of July in style, offering savings of up to 40% off appliances, 30% off power tools, 40% off patio furniture, and 15% off grills and accessories. This means you can refresh you patio and outdoor area this summer without breaking the bank.
Whether you’re in store for a new gas grill like this highly-rated Nexgrille 6-Burner ($80 off), or new seating for your patio like this chic Hampton Bay Set ($360 off), you’re sure to find something that’ll upgrade your home with this sale.

7. 30% off: The ever popular Instant Pot
In terms of trendy kitchen gadgets, I’d say the Instant Pot reigns supreme. Also known as a multi-cooker, they combine several kitchen appliances (including a rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, and slow cooker) into one handy machine. I’ll let you in on a little secret though, you should avoid buying one at full price because they actually go on sale very frequently.
For instance, right now, one of their most popular models, Instant Pot DUO Plus 60 9-in-1 is on sale at Amazon for only $89.99, which is one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen outside of Prime Day and Black Friday. The 9-in-1 is the more souped-up version (pun intended) than the standard 7-in-1, with fifteen presets to help you cook whatever recipe you desire. It performed very well in our testing of the best pressure cookers, so we’d definitely recommend it if you want to get in on the pressure cooking craze, and save money while you’re at it.
Get the Instant Pot DUO Plus 60, 6 Qt 9-in-1 Multi- Use Programmable Pressure Cooker on Amazon for $89.99 (Save $39.96)
8. This Fire TV at its lowest price ever
I’m sounding the alarms for this deal, because it means Prime Day discounts are already making an appearance, and I couldn’t be more excited. If you’re a Prime member, you can currently get the 43-inch Toshiba Fire TV for just $180, which normally retails for $300. This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this Toshiba, which has Amazon Fire TV programmed right into it (one of our favorite streaming services), so you can easily watch all of your favorite TV shows and movies at the touch of a button. As an added benefit, an Alexa-compatible remote is also included, which you can use to voice command your TV if you’re lazy like me and don’t like flipping through channels.
