Home Depot 4th of July Sale 2020: Appliances, grills, tools, and more

The 4th of July falls on the weekend this year (unlike last year, when it fell in the middle of the week), prompting many retailers to start running their early sales all week long, and some longer than that. Home Depot is no exception, and the sale includes deals on a range of items including appliances, tools, grills, and smart home tech.

The sale is traditionally one of Home Depot’s better ones and is a great time to save on some home essentials that you would likely pay close to full price for otherwise. Summer’s also a great time to do some remodeling, and if you’re in the market for new appliances, there are a few special buys that we’d like to bring your attention to. Special Buys are a great opportunity to replace several of your aging appliances at once and save quite a bit of money.

Here are some of the better deals we’ve spotted in this year’s sale.

Home Depot 4th of July appliance deals

We find the best way to buy appliances through Home Depot is to purchase them when the retailer offers them as part of a “Special Buy,” where the more appliances you buy, the more money you save. In many cases, you’ll end up saving 30% to 50%, if not even more. However, there are a few other deals across the site for individual appliances in case you’re not ready to upgrade all of your appliances at once.

  • LG 4-Piece Stainless Steel Appliance Package — $1,748 after Special Buy discount, was $3,646
  • Refrigerators — up to 40% off
  • Ranges — up to 35% off
  • Dishwashers — up to 40% off
  • Washers — up to 40% off
  • Dryers — up to 40% off

As you might expect, the deals on grills and grilling accessories aren’t as great as the ones on appliances because we’re basically in the middle of the grilling season. Still, after a fair bit of searching, we were able to find some solid deals — so if your grill is on its last leg, there’s plenty of time to get a new one at a decent price.

  • Coleman RoadTrip 285 Portable Grill — $220, was $250
  • Royal Gourmet 3-Burner Gas and Charcoal Combo Grill — $360, was $430
  • Royal Gourmet 8-Burner Propane Gas Grill — $390, was $460
  • Lifesmart Pellet Grill and Meat Smoker — $449, was $678
  • Vision Grills Kamado Ceramic Charcoal Grill — $622, was $699
  • Weber Genesis II E-310 3-Burner Propane Gas Grill — $699, was $749

The smart home “revolution” wasn’t as revolutionary as some claimed it would be, but there are still some great applications for this technology when it comes to things like home security and climate control. Smart speakers like the Google Home Mini are also hugely popular (and are a great way to take control of your wider smart home ecosystem with simple voice commands), and the Home Depot 4th of July sale has some nice smart home deals and bundles that can save you up to 50%.

  • Google Home Mini Smart Speaker — $29, was $49
  • Honeywell T5 Smart Thermostat — $79, was $109
  • Lenovo Smart Display with Google Assistant — $100, was $200
  • Defender Guard Bullet Outdoor Wireless Security Camera (2-Pack) — $140, was $190

The prices are pretty high still, so you pivot to checking out the best TV deals. Smart. Then, you realize it is early July and all of your problems begin. Should you buy a TV now, taking advantage of 4th of July deals, or do you wait for Prime Day deals? The dissatisfying answer is 'Yes, no, maybe so.'

The fact of the matter is, there are reasonable cases for getting a TV during 4th of July sales and waiting for Prime Day. Here, we let each event plead its own case.
Buy now — The case for 4th of July TV deals
Before we even get into the plethora of deals available, we should state the obvious message that is incredibly easy to miss if you spend too much time crunching the numbers — buying now for the 4th of July means more time with the TV in the summer. Yes, the summer is a traditionally outdoor season. But, the nights are longer with the kids not having school and the family memories are to last a lifetime.

Best Buy is selling this Lenovo Chromebook for $229 during 4th of July sales

While some of the best laptops on the market can play the latest AAA games, that's often way too much power for most folks, and they often cost an arm and a leg. Add to that the fact that Windows 11 likes to take a chunk out of the RAM to run, and you start running into issues where even budget-oriented laptops are quite expensive to stay above a minimum specification bar. Luckily, there is a solution in the form of Chromebooks, which run their own, more lightweight operating system, so you can get some really great stuff for cheap. In fact, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3i is currently on sale at Best Buy for the 4th of July, and it's going for just$229 rather than the usual $349 that it usually costs.

 Why you should buy the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3i Chromebook
Because ChromeOS is a lot lighter than Windows, it means that Chromebooks like the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3i can get away with having lower-end specs, such as with the Intel N100 CPU. It's a lower-end processor that wouldn't work well for a regular laptop, but this Chromebook will handle most day-to-day and general-use tasks without too much hassle. Granted, the 4GB of RAM is a bit on the lower end, even for a Chromebook, but it's not as debilitating, and you'll still get some pretty good use out of it. That said, the 64GB of storage is very low, and you'll likely have to supplement it with one of these external hard drive deals, if you don't have one already.
