'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

Written by Rebecca Isaacs, Staff Writer on

Fourth of July is a few days away, and while it's time to bust out the grill and pick up some hot dogs, brats, or whatever else satisfies your summer cravings, this is also one of the best times of the year to invest in appliances. Prime Day may be around the corner on July 12 and 13, but right now, Best Buy is offering kitchen aficionados some great deals on home appliances.

As a part of their Fourth of July sale, you can find steep discounts on major appliances, including refrigerators, stoves, and more. Plus, with qualifying purchases, you'll get a free $100 Best Buy e-Gift Card if you spend $1,499 or more.

Because Best Buy dropped the price on a bunch of appliances, we're saving you some time. Below, you'll find the best deals Best Buy is offering for their Fourth of July sale. The good news is that you have time to purchase, as the sale ends July 13, 2022.

This is the lowest price we've seen on this fridge.

Pair it with the matching dryer, which is also on sale at the same price.
