Sure, it's a great time for fireworks, parades, backyard parties, and barbecues.
But what could be more patriotic than taking advantage of 4th of July sales?
Since July 4th falls on a Wednesday this year, many of us will be taking an extended 5-day weekend -- so there's extra time to get it all done!
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 quickly -- and have the rest of the day to celebrate the biggest holiday of the summer.
What to buy on the 4th of July
If you're celebrating the 4th with a shopping excursion, count on special blowouts at Best Buy, Macy's, JC Penny, Ikea, Target and other major names offering big savings on everything from furniture, kids clothing and laptops to early back to school sales.
In fact, the whole month of July becomes a great time
to shop the stores and factory outlets for sales on beach chairs, towels, backyard equipment, summer party goods, patio furniture, swimsuits, sandals, and more summer fashion.
Also look for bargains on bicycles, as well as boating and snorkeling equipment as retailers sell off their summer inventory to get ready to stock their shelves for fall.
In the market for a new or used car? Come July, watch for TV commercial marathons to help push new models and used cars out the showroom door. At neighborhood auto centers, also look for special deals on auto accessories during an extended holiday weekend..
Meanwhile, if you're heading to the supermarket also keep an eye out for special deals on barbecue party supplies including sales on everything from charcoal to the chips and dip.
Also be sure to take advantage of the special sales and bargains by online stores, major department stores and local shops offering coupon codes, seasonal bargains,
and deep discounts for the best deals of the summer.
