When do Fourth of July sales start?

Be on the lookout for Fourth of July sales starting mid-June. In years past, large retailers like Dick’s and Best Buy have rolled out sales around June 20 — and lots of stores keep stellar sales going throughout July or longer.

Because Independence Day falls smack in the middle of summer, you can sometimes get away with buying seasonal items like picnic essentials, summer clothing and back-to-school gear. For grills and lawn mowers, you might want to hold off on making a purchase until the offseason.

Appliances

You might want to hold off on buying outdoor appliances, especially grills for those epic hot dogs, if you can help it. Retailers know they won’t have to offer that big of a discount on items that you’ll likely need right now. So unless the Fourth of July party simply can’t go on without a new one, you may be able to snag a deeper discount after summer.

However, July sales can be a great time to snag a solid deal on indoor appliances like refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers and washers and dryers. A few killer deals we’ve spotted so far include:

  • Best Buy: Up to 40% off appliances
  • Home Depot: Up to 40% off indoor and outdoor appliances
  • Lowes: Up to 40% off appliances
