May the fourth be with you! Get it? It’s the fourth of May. And it rhymes with “May the Force be with you.” It’s all a bit hammy but in a good way. Today is Disney’s official corporate holiday for the Star Wars franchise and that means it’s a good excuse to fill out your collection with some discounted Star Wars swag. We’ve searched from one end of the galaxy to the next, and rounded up these great deals on merch, movies, and more.

Media and Tech Deals
This one’s big. Like it’s full of stuff. This Skywalker Saga collector’s edition includes physical 4K Blu-Ray copies of all three trilogies, digital copies of the movies, a decorative art book, and a storage case. It’s a good one to pick up ahead of the holidays.
You won’t see this Beskar Ingot M.2 solid state drive very often (since it’ll be inside your PlayStation 5 or PC), but it’s a pretty cool design. The standard M.2 drive rectangle is decorated with a rippling Beskar design made to look like the precious metal the Mandalorian uses to make his armor.
p class=”paywall”>No disintegrations. OK, maybe some. This special edition of Razer’s Xbox controller (compatible with Xbox Series S, Series X, Xbox One, and PC) boasts a Boba Fett paint job so you can blast your enemies and capture bounties in style. The controller comes with a magnetic quick-charging stand, which I always appreciate since it’s so easy to forget to charge your controllers in between bounty hunts. This deal is also available at Best Buy.
Apparel, Cases, and Toy Deals
OtterBox has quite the selection of Star Wars cases available for a variety of devices, from iPhones to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. You’ll see the discount at checkout. For more themed cases, check out Casetify—its cases aren’t on sale, but it has a ton of cool designs.
This one’s less a sale and more just some cool free stuff if you’re picking up new Lego sets. Spend more than $70 and you can snag The Mandalorian Beskar Key Chain (you’ll need to sign up to be a VIP member here, which is free), and if you spend more than $160, you can get a free Lars Family Homestead Lego set. Just add those items to your cart. Lego dropped a few new sets for Star Wars Day too, like this Luke Skywalker Landspeeder.
Enter promo code THEFORCE at checkout to see the discount. For May 4th only, MeUndies is offering 20 percent off of its Star Wars-themed loungewear, sleepwear, and undies. In my experience, they’re plush, comfy, and last a lot longer than standard department store underwear. Plus these ones have lightsabers and spaceships on them.
Diff eyewear offers several pairs of Star Wars-inspired sunglasses, and they’re all on sale right now. The above pair, inspired by Darth Vader’s monochrome style, is representative of the price and quality you’ll see on other pairs. As summer approaches, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to stock up on cute sunnies.
Okay there are way too many Star Wars action figures to count, and there are so many on sale at Best Buy right now. And I don’t mean knockoffs, I mean the real deal, Hasbro-branded, collector’s edition figurines. If you have kids in your life, or if someone you know is a factory-sealed-never-to-be-opened figurine collector, take a look.
There are dozens of Star Wars-themed T-shirts and toys on sale at Amazon for May the 4th. They’re not all winners, but there are quite a few cute styles and tchotchkes available for the Star Wars fan in your life.
