4th of July deals are easy to miss – here’s where to look for the best July 4th sales…
Awww, the 4th of July is finally almost here. One of those holidays that every red-blooded American looks forward to. Warm weather, BBQ parties, good food, cold beer, friends, family and freedom…it doesn’t get much better. But among all those good times is often even better savings. That’s right, don’t let the good times distract you from saving big on that certain item you’ve been keeping your eye on. The 4th of July is a great time to snag deals and discounts on some of the most sought after products out there.
When do Fourth of July Sales Start?
In short, earlier than you think. Some retailers have already started marketing their big sales. But most usually start the week of July 4th and surprisingly, the sales continue until around the 6th, 7th or 8th. However, that doesn’t mean you should wait until after the big day to start shopping. A lot of retailers are simply trying to push out old inventory so stock is limited and could run out if you wait too long.
Solid Buys – July 4th Deals
Sometimes when you hear about big sales, you automatically think that retailers are trying to get rid of the opposite season’s merchandise that they weren’t able to sell – so winter in this example, meaning jackets, portable heaters, snow pants, etc. But lucky for you that’s not the case with 4th of July sales. You can almost always find awesome deals on summer orientated products and gear.
Grills / BBQs – We all know summertime is a big season for grilling. Maybe you’ve finally dusted off your BBQ from last season and it’s not quite working as well as you remember. Well, this would be a good time to upgrade. Pretty much all the major retailers discount certain models of BBQs – sometimes as much as 60-70% off. Good places to check would be Home Depot, Walmart, Sears, and Lowe’s. Expect to see deals on brands like Char-Broil, Weber, Coleman and Dyna-Glo.
Patio Furniture – With grilling often comes lounging, sitting and eating outside. Expect to find some great deals on lawn chairs, patio tables, fire pit sets and umbrellas. JCPenney, Target and Wayfair often times have the best Fourth of July deals when it comes to this department.
Appliances – 4th of July appliance sales are a great time to score some serious savings. Expect to see some big discounts on refrigerators, washers, dryers, dishwashers and more. Be sure to check out Best Buy and Sears, where you will see some great deals on brands like Samsung, Kenmore and GE.
Outdoor Gear & Apparel – Independence Day sales are a great time to score some big savings on hiking shoes, outdoor shorts, workout clothing, hydration packs, backpacks and much more. If you are in need of an upgrade in the apparel and footwear department this would be a good time to pull the trigger. A few of the retailers where you will see some of the biggest sales are Backcountry, REI, Eddie Bauer and Merrell.

Mattresses, Mattresses, Mattresses – While not an “outdoor product” per se, expect to see a solid 4th of July mattress sale. Anticipate a good portion of the major direct-to-consumer mattress companies like Casper and Bear Mattress to offer $75-$100 off their mattresses. Of course, Wayfair and Macy’s are also good places to look as well for mattress discounts.
Categories to Avoid – Independence Day Sales 2017
TVs – Sure, you will see some deals on TVs from retailers like Best Buy and Target but we would recommend holding out until Black Friday or Cyber Monday where you will find even steeper discounts and savings.
Electronics and Audio – Same story here. You will see discounts and if you are in need of a new Bluetooth speaker or pair of wireless headphones maybe think about pulling the trigger. However, again, you will see even better deals come Black Friday on audio products and other electronics.
