It’s summer sale season, and Macy’s is taking it to the next level this year with its Black Friday in July sale, which runs through July 13 online and in stores.

Almost 100,000 items — yes, we double-checked those zeroes — are on sale across the store’s selection of clothing and homewares, and there are some major discounts to be had. We’re talking Instant Pots on sale for almost 50% off and practical items like vacuums at hugely reduced prices, plus some summer wardrobe updates, too.

Given the truly overwhelming number of items included in the sale (almost 54,000 in homewares alone), we’ve done the hard work and narrowed it down to some of the best picks from the sale. You don’t need a special code to take advantage of the sales; just head to the Macy’s website and start shopping.
