Happy Independence Day! We hope you can celebrate the long weekend with your family and friends. Maybe you are staying indoors this year to distract yourself The heat wave is currently making its way to the United States. If you’re out and about, we’ve got plenty of advice on how to stay cool. The good news is, there’s money to be saved on some of our favorite home and outdoor products this weekend thanks to a slew of July 4th sales.
Special offer for Gear readers: get a One year subscription to WIRED for $ 5 ($ 25 off). This includes unlimited access to WIRED.com and our print magazine (if you wish). Subscriptions help fund the work we do every day.
Cut the coupon to see the full discount at checkout. It’s a better deal than what we’ve seen on First day. This Oxo coffee maker (9/10, WIRED Recommend) can brew up to eight cups of coffee, making it a great option for large households, and it’s very easy to use. It will brew at the right temperature for the right amount of time. Plus, if you just want to make the value of a single cup, a drip attachment is included.
The DeLonghi is a very simple machine and one of the best prices when it is do not reduced. It is very easy to clean and you get a lather wand.
It’s $ 10 less than the price during Target’s Prime Day rival sale. We haven’t tested it, and while Keurig machines aren’t our favorite way to brew coffee, there’s no denying that it’s one of the easiest methods around. Make sure to take K-Cups!
This is our favorite robot vacuum for most people. It has features of more expensive vacuum cleaners, such as mapping, problem detection and virtual barriers. Plus, it has a larger than average dust bin and 180 minutes of battery life. It’s been reduced to $ 310 on Prime Day, but it’s still a solid price tag.
Cut out the coupon on the page to see the discount at checkout. We’ve seen this robot vacuum cost $ 100 cheaper on Amazon Prime Day, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth buying for this price. It is an excellent vacuum cleaner for households with pets. It sucks dog hair from low pile rugs and, most importantly, its cameras can dodge obstacles like animal droppings. No need to worry about coming home for animal damage spread around your house.
The D8 has a Turbo mode for particularly tough messes and an auto-recharge and resume feature when the battery dies while it’s still cleaning. We I loved the old Neato D7 when we tested it, and you can get it from The Neato website for the same price right now. But the new model is probably the way to go. You can also find this offer on Bed bath and beyond and Lowe’s. If you buy the D8 directly from The Neato site by July 5, you can get a side brush and a pack of four filters with your discount purchase using the promo code SUMMER21.
Apple’s latest MacBook Air (9/10, WIRED Recommend) uses its own M1 chip instead of an Intel processor, and the result is excellent. It’s a really well-balanced machine, with great battery life, powerful performance, a beautiful display, and the same classic, slim design. This is the lowest price we have ever seen.
This price is not as low as we saw on First day, but it’s still a steal on a 2020 flagship phone (8/10, WIRED recommends). The 90Hz AMOLED display is one of the best you’ll find at this price point, and it’s hard to find such a powerful Android phone for less than $ 500.
WIRED Reviews Editor Julian Chokkattu is currently testing this phone, and he says it’s incredible value, especially at this surprisingly low price. It’s fast enough to run most apps and games, the camera is surprisingly decent, and the battery can run for about two days.
This isn’t the lowest price we’ve seen on the ipad air, but if you’re in the market for Apple’s latest mid-range tablet, it’s worth it. It has the modern design of the iPad Pro without Face ID; in fact, Touch ID is built into the power button. It is powerful and has a great deal of autonomy.
Do you want an Android tablet instead? We love the S6 Lite tab. Performance won’t be as smooth as the more expensive slates, but it gets the job done. The screen is nice as are the speakers and the battery life.
You will likely be spending time outdoors in the next few months. We have guides on all things grilling including gas grills, charcoal barbecues, portable grills, and accessories. Also, see our favorite Bluetooth speakers if you want to DJ on your next night out.
Click the coupon button to see the discount at checkout. It might not be the biggest discount, but the StormBox is our favorite budget bluetooth speaker. It’s IPX7 rated, which means you can bring it to your pool or the beach while you’re celebrating the summer. It has 20 hours of battery life and powerful bass.
It’s nice to have a cooler on hand when you’re hosting (or going!) Backyard parties, a beach trip, or a number of events. The 16 Quart Stanley Adventure is sturdy, relatively light, and can hold 21 cans of your choice of beverage.
Nothing says more than summer on the grill. If you grill regularly, you should get an instant-read thermometer. This Thermapen doesn’t come cheap, but Scott Gilbertson, editor-in-chief of WIRED, says the investment is worth it. It has an automatic backlight and folds up for easy storage.
It’s senior WIRED writer Scott Gilbertson’s favorite smart hub for a grill. It is ideal for anyone who does a lot of slow cooking, smoking, or anything that requires maintaining a constant but low temperature. It has four channels, you can see different temperatures, and you don’t need to have your phone with you to see all of this information.
Click the coupon button on the page to see the full discount at checkout. Most people don’t think they need gloves for grilling, but that makes it a whole lot easier. These gloves can withstand up to 932 degrees Fahrenheit, but you should still be careful even when using your gloved hands.
If you are going for a hike this summer, trekking poles help relieve some of the strain on your legs and knees by transferring the work to your upper body. You should buy some rubber tips to hook the end and avoid dragging poles during the hike—pole scars can damage the environment.
WIRED employees have used a few different versions of these bottles, and love them all, but this one has a nice pocket with a pocket to store your keys. All bottles are 15% off until July 5, so you should be able to find something you like.
by Sephora Summer sale until July 5th, and our favorite Amika straightening brush is at a reduced price. It’s worth it at this price if your hair type responds well to brushes. It removes the curls from my hair but leaves it puffy, and I’ve seen others achieve flat iron-like results in less time and with less damage.
This dryer is cheap the way it is, so another $ 5 discount is fine. It works well for diffusing curls and has the best design from the 90s. However, the low setting can be too low and the high setting can cause frizz on delicate curls. A medium option would have been nice.
This tumble dryer features a quick-dry oscillating nozzle that moves quickly from side to side as you dry, mimicking the back-and-forth motion you might do with your hand.
Cut out the coupon on the page to see the discount at checkout. It’s an expensive dryer, but it automatically adjusts the heat and airflow based on humidity levels and air temperature.
This Dermaflash is on our list of the best hair removal equipment. It’s expensive and the blades are single-use only, but they remove peach fuzz and dead skin from your face without irritation.
It wouldn’t be a vacation if all of our favorite mattresses weren’t at a discount. Lily our guide to all mattresses we have tested for more. The following prices are for queen sizes.
Use promotional code July4200 to see the discount at checkout. It’s our favorite mattress. It’s quite expensive even on sale, but it’s really great for chilling out at night. This offer includes two Helix pillows for free.
We’ve seen this mattress go down further, but it’s affordable even if it’s not on sale. Comfort doesn’t suffer in the name of a good deal, either.
