It's officially the 4th of July, which means abundant savings on TVs, kitchen appliances, mattresses, and much more. Despite not running an 'official' July 4th sale, Amazon is still offering plenty of discounts in honor of the holiday. As we all know, Amazon Prime Day is next week (July 12-13), so the retailer's relatively low-key approach to Independence Day sales is somewhat understandable. 

But let's not be mistaken – there's no shortage of Amazon 4th of July sales, especially if you're looking for a cheap TV deal. We're talking an Amazon Fire TV 55-inch Omni Series 4K UHD Smart TV for $299.99 (was $559.99), which is at an all-time price low. Or, snatch up an Amazon Fire TV 43-inch 4-Series Smart TV on sale for $199.99 (was $369.99), a great low-cost display with a $170 discount. 

Amazon is also home to some of the best Apple 4th of July deals we've seen today, including $200 off a 16-inch MacBook Pro M1 and an Apple Watch 7 for $70 off. Amazon's smart tech is on sale now, too – notably its eero line of mesh routers, Blink home security cameras, and refurbished Amazon Echo devices.

To help you filter out the noise, we've rounded up the 20 best Amazon 4th of July deals worth checking out ahead of Prime Day. Just be aware, we may see these deals crop up again next week – possibly at lower prices, so unless you need an item ASAP it may pay to be patient if you're seeking the absolute best price. 

We're also rounding up all of the best 4th of July sales over at our main hub page for additional savings on appliances, mattresses, outdoor goods, and plenty more.
