4th of July sales 2024: top gaming deals over for another year

Lots of the July sales continue - shop our top picks on gaming gear and hardware.

Best 4th of July sales with gaming products on a background with stars

We saw some fantastic 4th of July sales this year at our favorite gaming retailers. While many celebrated Independence Day with fireworks and food, the holiday was also a chance to treat yourself and bag big savings on new gear and hardware.

We hadn’t covered the best 4th of July deals at PCGamesN before, but the sales were too big this year to ignore. Unlike Amazon Prime Day deals coming later in July, discounts were seen across a huge range of US stores and available to all shoppers rather than exclusive to paid members.

Every retailer marked up its sales differently – Best Buy dedicated a whole hub to 4th of Jule sales, while Lenovo didn’t offer specific Independence Day deals but leaned into its “Black Friday in July event”. The 4th of July sales are over for 2024, but we’ll be back with all the hottest gaming sales next year.

Tips for shopping 4th of July sales

There are now a lot of sales events in the calendar year, and while 4th of July sales present an opportunity to save money, they also give retailers another chance to share older goods at falsely lowered prices (shocking, I know!).

With that in mind, we want to help you shop the sales safely. Savvy? Firstly, target your search and don’t waste time browsing everything. It’s a great idea to decide what you’re looking for, what you need, and to stick with that. Focus on the retailers specializing in the categories you’re shopping for, whether Newegg for components or Best Buy for prebuilt gaming laptops.

Don’t assume that the first offer you see is the best one either. Before you reach the checkout we recommend checking competitor pricing with a quick web search. And on pricing, while huge percentage discounts sound great on paper, good deals can also include bonus items like accessories or extra PC games bundled in. Consider the overall value proposition rather than just the price drop.

Does Amazon have 4th of July sales?

Yes, Amazon does have 4th of July sales. These look quite similar to the retailer’s daily deals section, with time-limited deals on a huge range of products. Right now we’re seeing decent reductions on headsets, third-party keyboards, and gaming routers, but we fully expect the deals to develop as we get closer to the 4th of July.
