If you're really in the mood to shop, take a look at the absolute best 4th of July sales from across the web.

This iPad Air made its debut in May 2024 and, true to its name, it only weighs about a pound. It features a liquid retina display with an anti-reflective coating. Shoppers especially love how fast it is. The M2 chip is 50% faster than the previous M1 model. Right now, it's also at its lowest price ever.

"The screen response is very quick and the graphics quality is perfect for what I need," said one Apple loyalist. "The screen and overall size of this iPad is perfect if you just plan to use it for personal use (like watching movies or taking notes). On that note, it also has amazing battery life. I can go a good week without needing to charge it!"

"I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend and he loves it," shared another shopper. "Great screen quality, battery life and it is very lightweight. He loves the feature where you can split the screen between two apps."

"If you're thinking about the [Apple iPad] Air Gen 5 versus this one — hands down go with the M2," said one person who upgraded. "For $160 more you get an extra 64GB and M2 chip. Well worth it."

Vitamin C offers a range of benefits for your skin. First of all, it's an antioxidant, which means it can fight toxins that come in contact with your skin. Experts say that with regular use, it can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, prevent sun damage, decrease dark spots and get rid of acne. This serum is gentle enough to apply daily, and over 26,000 Amazon shoppers rave about it. 

"This is the only vitamin C serum I use!" one shopper shared. "I'm on my fourth bottle! It's lightweight, hydrating and it helps with my dark spots. It makes my skin super glowy and plump."

"They also reportedly taste delicious, as my furbaby runs straight to me when she sees me opening up the packet," said one Yahoo editor who gives them to her little scaredy-dog.

If acne scars, enlarged pores or a dull, uneven skin tone are keeping you from loving your face, here's an affordable solution. This serum — cherished by over 33,000 five-star fans at Amazon — has been called "heaven sent," a "miracle in a bottle" and "liquid gold."

"I am absolutely blown away by this product," said one shopper. "I have sensitive oily/combination acne-prone skin with lots of redness. I'm noticing a huge difference in less than two weeks already, and even noticed today my forehead wrinkles are starting to disappear!"

This 79-by-83-inch beach blanket that repels sand and water is down to just $14 with the on-page coupon. It's made of 210 polyester, which repels water even better than an umbrella and easily shakes off any sand. It also has four anchors to keep it from flying off on windy days and a drawstring bag for easy carrying. It's spacious too — big enough to fit three to five people.

"Love this blanket," shared a shopper. "We have taken it hiking, on a picnic and to the beach. It is everything that it says it is. Lightweight, folds small, water-resistant and easy to clean. Would definitely purchase again."

You already know how important it is to brush your teeth. However, why use a regular toothbrush when you could use an electric one that really gets all the nitty-gritty off your enamel? This electric whiz has five cleaning modes: clean, sensitive, whitening, gum care and tongue. And one charge will last 30 days, so you don't have to worry about charging it that often. It comes with eight brush heads, which nets out to about two years' worth of brushes.

"This seems to be a great toothbrush," wrote one Amazon reviewer. "I've only had it a couple of weeks, but it outperforms Oral-B in every respect: multiple brush patterns, easy to charge, shut off timer, no charger stand. You can also use Oral-B brushes with it, so if the manufacturer doesn't provide replacement brushes, no problem. Great purchase."

If your ice maker doesn't produce enough to keep everyone (and their drinks) chill, consider a countertop ice maker. Just add water and turn on the switch. That's it — you'll have ice in just a few minutes! In fact, it can make nine ice cubes in six minutes and produce up to 26.5 pounds of ice in 24 hours. Even more notable is its barely-there sound. Unlike a lot of freezer-based ice makers, this little machine performs its magic at under 45 decibels — just slightly louder than a library. 

"This ice machine is a game-changer for anyone who loves their beverages chilled to perfection!" said one happy customer. "It churns out ice in no time, ensuring you never run out, even during the hottest summer days. Plus, its durability means it can handle the demands of daily use without skipping a beat. Cleaning it is a breeze, which is a huge plus in my book."

Get social media's favorite do-it-all pan. The 10.5-inch pan can braise, sear, steam, sauté, fry, boil and bake, and it comes with a steamer basket that doubles as a strainer. Also included: a wooden spoon and built-in spoon rest for minimal mess. Featuring the brand's proprietary Thermakind (a long-lasting, nontoxic, ceramic nonstick coating), it's safe for all stove tops and oven-safe up to 450°F.

"Some of my favorite features are the dual spouts that make for easier pouring and straining, as well as the lid, which has a small opening on one side in case you need to let steam escape. It's clear that they really thought about the smaller details when designing this pan, which I appreciate," shared Yahoo's Britt Ross in her Always Pan review.

If you've spent the past year squinting at your TV screen, it's time to splurge on something bigger and better. This 75-inch beauty from Toshiba is just the thing — and it's at the lowest price it has ever been.

"This is a really good TV," stated one shopper. "I like the picture quality and HDR. The Amazon Fire integration is nice and the TV is very fast and does not lag. This TV is a total bargain. Good TV for gaming, I tried my PS5 and Xbox Series X on it and they both look great."
