These sales are so good, you’ll be seeing stars (and stripes).
Summer cookouts, weekend getaways, and fireworks aren’t the only ways to celebrate America’s birthday. You’ll also want to shop the bounty of 4th of July sales that are the cherry on top of this patriotic sundae. “Three-day weekends deliver amazing discounts across multiple categories,” explains Trae Bodge, a smart-shopping expert. “July 4th is known for deals on items for the home, including mattresses, decor, and furniture. Shoppers will also find discounts on apparel basics like loungewear sets and walking sandals, as well as outdoor gear for camping and hiking.”
If you’re wondering where to start, big-ticket items usually see the steepest markdowns during this mid-summer holiday week. According to Bodge, you’ll be able to score anywhere from 20 to 70 percent off just about everything major retailers have to offer—and this could be your last chance to save big until the Christmas season. “Expect items like home decor and furniture to be marked down,” she says. “Larger retailers like Overstock, Home Depot, Wayfair, JCPenney, and Bed Bath & Beyond will have great deals.”
We did the hard deal-hunting work for you, so all you have to do is click below and buy. Then you can put up your feet and have an extra lemonade as you watch the fireworks and enjoy these other fun ideas for the 4th of July.
