July 4 sales you still have time to get

id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> It wouldn't be a holiday without an Instant Pot deal, right?

Josh Miller/CNET The Fourth of July is officially in the rear-view mirror, but many deals remain -- and some will do so throughout the long weekend. 

Looking for a new bed? There are still lots of mattress deals to be had. Check out this roundup of the best Fourth of July mattress sales. In the meantime, 40% was definitely the magic number this year, as evidenced by the following:


Best Buy: Save up to 40% on appliances

Home Depot: Save up to 40% on appliances, grills, mowers, power tools and patio furniture

Lowe's: Save up to 40% on appliances
Now let's take a look at some specific deals you won't want to miss -- all of them still available as of today.

Google Home Mini: $25 (save $24)
OK, Google, cost less
Chris Monroe/CNET This is actually one of a variety of Google Home and Google Nest products on sale at Walmart. But the Home Mini smart speaker is an especially good deal at $25, a price that rivals Black Friday.

Enter the quantum realm
Sarah Tew/CNET You've never heard of quantum dots? They're a thing, and they give Vizio's M-Series a serious picture boost -- without the serious price boost. If you want top-notch deep blacks, great color reproduction and solid 4K HDR, this is a solid savings on a great TV.

Paging David Bowie
Josh Miller/CNET What would a holiday be without an Instant Pot sale? This is one of the most popular kitchen products, well, ever, able to pressure-cook, slow-cook, steam-cook and more. Need something larger? Best Buy has the 8-quart Insignia pressure cooker for $59.99, a $60 savings.

Sensor sensibility
Ecobee's smart thermostats continue to outflank Google's Nests in one key way: They come with a room sensor (and let you add more as needed), meaning you can adjust temperature based on a specific area, not just wherever the thermostat is located. This isn't the lowest price ever, but it's still a solid savings.

Keep your frames, replace your lenses
Screenshot by David Carnoy/CNET On paper, Lensabl is already a great way to save money on glasses: You keep the frames you already bought, paid for and like, but get brand-new lenses to go in them. (You do have to ship your frames to the company and wait for them to come back, so you'll likely need a spare pair.)

Between July 1 and July 7, you can save 20% on all clear lenses when you apply promo code SEECLEAR.

Bettr than paying full price
To butcher an old saying, one man's tech-trash is another man's tech-treasure. The next time you're in the market for a new phone or tablet, consider a certified-refurbished one instead -- especially if it includes a full 12-month warranty, which is what you get from Decluttr. What's more, you can save an extra 15% by applying promo code INDY15 at checkout. (That code is good through July 7.)

For example, an unlocked iPhone XR in pristine condition priced at $689.99 ($60 below new) would run you just $569.50.

Wheelin' and dealin'
Turo Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone's car, but you do all the driving. I've used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services, in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, "midsize") and in part because you can often do pickup/dropoff right outside baggage claim.

Between now and July 11, you can get $50 off any Turo rental when you apply promo code 4JULY2019.

Juice, there it is
Chris Monroe/CNET Hurom makes high-end juicers, but unfortunately that results in high-end pricing. From July 1 to July 8, however, you can save 20% on all Hurom's Citrus Juicers and Alpha, Classic and Limited Edition Slow Juicers. The company is also knocking 25% off the H-AA and HZ Rose Gold Slow Juicers.

CNET's Brian Bennett didn't love the H-AA's high price and complicated design, but users have been more forgiving: It has a 4.2-star review average from Amazon buyers and an even better rating from over 500 Hurom customers.
