When is 4th of July 2021?
While we know that Independence Day is on July 4th, this year it falls on a Sunday, which means the federal observed holiday will take place on Monday, July 5.
Independence Day is an annual celebration in the United States to commemorate the passage of the Declaration of Independence that took place on July 4, 1776.
When do 4th of July sales start?
Most 4th of July sales will kick off the week before the holiday, which means we should start to see deals pop up in late June. This year, the highly anticipated Prime Day sale takes place on June 21 and 22, which means retailers might hold off on promoting 4th of July offers after the two-day Amazon event.
All 4th of July sales will last through the holiday weekend, and most will end on Monday, July 5. We’ll be updating this page daily with all the best early bargains, so make sure to check back for new discounts and deals.
What are the best 4th of July sales?
The biggest categories discounted during the 4th of July sales event include appliances, patio furniture, mattresses, clothing, and tech items like laptops and TVs. Because the 4th of July marks the middle of the summer, you can find clearance items on several outdoor items such as grills, patio furniture, planters, lawn mowers, and more.
The 4th of July is also a fantastic time to find deals on mattresses, with retailers like Casper and Temper-Pedic participating in sitewide sales. Home Depot and Lowe’s are just a few retailers that will be discounting top-brand appliances all weekend long, and tech retailers like Best Buy and Dell have fantastic deals on laptops, TVs, headphones, and more.
