Best game to play on July 4: Kubb (rhymes with “tube”), a ridiculously fun blend of cornhole and horseshoes. (You can make your own pretty easily with some inexpensive lumber, or just pick up a Kubb set like this one for around $40.)
Best place to shop on July 4: Don’t be silly; July 4 is for BBQs! But in the weeks leading up to to Independence Day, lots of stores have already rolled out their sales. Below I’ve rounded up those that I think are worth your attention — but check back often, as I’ll be updating this post as we get closer to the holiday.
One thing I can tell you now: There will be lots of mattress deals. So if you’re looking to buy a new bed, stay tuned. In the meantime, 40% seems to be 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
- REI: Save up to 40% on a variety of outdoor items
Now let’s take a look at some specific deals you won’t want to miss.
Save 20% on clear lenses at Lensabl
Keep your frames, replace your lenses
Screenshot by David Carnoy/CNETOn 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.
