They've expanded the seating areas on sale this time, here's a quick rundown from highest to lowest price:
|Section||Regular Price||eSaver Price|
|Field Level (124-116)||$300||$250|
|Field Level (125 & 115)||$275||$235|
|Field Level (129-136 & (103-111)||$90||$80|
|Mohegan Sun Sports Bar||$90||$70|
|Field Level Cafe||$75||$50|
To get the discount, go to the Ticketmaster page for the game in question (here's a general link to the schedule) and select the amount of tickets you're looking for in the Promotions and Special Offers area. You'll need a password, which is mohegan. Make sure that you select your preferred seating area.
A whole $50 off $300 seats, truly a bargain for the ages. These discounts are just not that exciting this time around, though $50 for the Field Level cafe seating/standing is not bad. Ross wrote up a post that has good information about anyone thinking about sitting/standing there, so make sure to check it out. The Batter's Eye seats often receive much deeper discounts, and quite frankly seem like a Hellish place to sit for day games during July.
It's hard to predict what the secondary market will look like for the July 4th weekend, but keep in mind that the Yankees are playing four day games in a row (Thursday 7/1 through 7/4), and for the non-weekend dates there's a good chance it'll be a total buyer's market. Be sure to check Fansnap before making any decisions you can't take back.
