Sure, it's a great time for fireworks, parades, backyard parties, and barbecues.
But remember that there's another reason to celebrate the biggest holiday of the summer -- at a 4th of July sale near you.
Since July 4th falls on a Monday this year, many of us will be taking an extended three-day weekend -- so there's extra time to get it all done!
Ahead of the holiday, also be sure to watch for Fourth of July sales popping up everywhere during the latter half of June,
HINT: While you'll find Independence Day sales everywhere throughout the first week of July, most stores save their special "doorbuster" sales to lure in the crowds in the early morning of July 4th.
So get there early -- and have the rest of the day to celebrate.
