This year the Fourth of July might look a little different: barbecues may be smaller or not happen at all, people will be annoyed by fireworks after seemingly the whole country has had them going off in their neighborhood for a month, and beach days might be replaced with movie nights.
The only thing that will never change? Online shopping.
As always, there are a ton of deals this weekend to celebrate the U.S. in the most American way possible. Grab a cheeseburger, pull out your laptop, and check out the best nerdy sales for July Fourth below.
PowerUp Rewards members received early access to this sale, which runs from July 2-4 but there’s still plenty of merch to go around at GameStop’s sale. Items up for grabs include:
- Pre-Owned Items
Do you know that feeling when there’s a huge sale so you load your cart with $219-worth of items and then shipping is $5 so you abandon the whole thing? Insight Editions has you covered.
The publishing company’s July Fourth sale brings readers 40% off select titles *and* free shipping with the code JULY4SHIP. Some of the titles included in the sale are:
- 85 (!!!) different Harry Potter-themed books, cards, and more ranging from $4.79-$45
- 30 Game of Thrones items, including the Pop-Up Guide to Westeros for $45 and a House Targaryen journal ($11.37) for jotting down all your enemies’ names.
- Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook so you can bring something out-of-this-world to the quarantined-cookout. It’s down to $21 from $35.
- All the comic-themed books you can dream of.
- Nerdy swimwear I’ve been debating buying since I wrote about it in April is 30-50% off. Unfortunately for my wallet, the Loki and Iron Man two-pieces *are* among the half-price offers.
- The birthday-boy himself in tee, hoodie, and tank-top form for 20-40% off.
- Tons of plus-size options, including a Fleur Delacour dress for $67.45 instead of its original price of $134.90.
While most of Target’s sale is composed of your standard swimwear and hamburger buns, there are a couple of nerdy finds:
- Apparel including this Plus-Ultra tee for $14.99 (down from $24.99)
- Collectibles, such as an exclusive Naruto Six Paths Dorbz figure for $6.99 (originally $17.99)
- Game, snacks, plushies, and Manga — oh my.
