Sony’s noise-canceling WH-1000XM5 headphones are more than $80 off

Whether you fully intend to celebrate our nation’s independence this weekend or skip it entirely, that doesn’t change the fact the Fourth of July remains one of the best times of the year to pick up a smorgasbord of discounted tech. Unsurprisingly, a number of retailers have launched a selection of early sales in the run-up to the holiday — including eBay, which is giving shoppers a chance to save 20 on select gadgets when they use promo code SAVE4JULY4TH at checkout.

Now for a deal that’s less about celebrating our nation’s history and more about celebrating our own audience. Now through July 15th (or while supplies last), Verge readers can snag Google’s latest Nest Learning Thermostat at Wellbots for just $179 ($70 off) with coupon code THERMVERG70. The exclusive discount applies to a range of models — including the stainless steel, polished brass, copper, white, and black variants — making now a good opportunity if you’ve been waiting for a price drop on a particular model.

Google’s premium Nest Learning Thermostat may not offer Matter support like the inexpensive base model, but it’s still the company’s most advanced smart thermostat to date. It can learn your heating and cooling habits over time, which eventually allows it to adjust the temperature of your home automatically, thus saving you money when you’re not around. It also supports both smartphone and voice controls, as well as Amazon Alex, Google Home, and a wide array of HVAC systems.
