Update, 1 p.m. PT: There are still more Star Wars Day deals to be had, including:

Original story continues below.

"May the 4th be with you."

"These are the deals you're looking for."

"I don't know... buy casual."

OK, now that we've got the obligatory puns out of the way, let's get right to it. May 4 has evolved into a semiofficial Star Wars holiday, because "May the 4th be with you"... get it? And with every good holiday (real or made up) comes sales and savings. This is no exception.

For example, GOG.com has over a dozen classic Star Wars PC games on sale, including two I highly recommend: LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga for $6.99 and The Force Unleashed II for $6.99.

Beyond that, check below for some of the best Star Wars deals in the galaxy.

Epic Adventures

Perfect for young Padawans, Star Wars Epic Adventures is a subscription box that comes with things like books, trading cards, posters and stickers. It normally runs $19.99 per box, plus $4 for shipping, but as part of a May the 4th promotion, the first box is just $9.99 -- and you get free shipping.

If you've never played pinball on your phone or tablet, it's actually pretty fun. And these incredibly detailed tables are enriched by sound effects, voice clips and other Star Wars goodness. Can't beat free!


Although Walmart doesn't have an official "Star Wars sale" running, the store does carry a huge variety of Star Wars toys and games -- many of which are on sale.

For example, the Lego Star Wars Kessel Run Millennium Falcon is currently $119.99, down from $169.95. And the Hot Wheels Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter Red Five Starship is $34.36. Regular price: $44.73.

Propel's Star Wars drones are flippin' awesome. I own one, and I've had the chance to dogfight with a friend who owns one. Pure geeky fun, let me tell you.

ZDNet Academy has the TIE Fighter and Speeder Bike models for $50, but CNET readers can save an extra $10 by applying promo code CNETSTARWARS20. These originally sold for $180.

This is just one of five Star Wars games currently on sale at Microsoft. At this price, it might a little easier to overlook some of the flaws cited in GameSpot's review of Battlefront II. (Those flaws aside: fun game!)

Lucasfilm Ltd.

Is there anything more adorable than kids wearing Star Wars togs? Nope. For a limited time, Rags.com is offering 20% off select clothes when you apply promo code STARWARSDAY at checkout.


I'm hard-pressed to think of a young Padawan who wouldn't love stuffing his or her own Star Wars-themed plush toy. Let's just be thankful they didn't call them "Chew-bear-ca" or "Stormtroop-bear."


Actually, this kit was $200 when it debuted in late December, 2017, so you're saving more like $150. At that time, CNET's Scott Stein called it "The first AR helmet to make you feel like the last Jedi." But he found it hard to justify the price. On May 4, Lenovo will make it much more palatable.
