As the Fourth of July has come and gone, we’ve stopped updating this post with sales and can’t promise the ones below are still available. Check back next year for updated deals.

Fourth of July is almost here! And if you plan to spend your whole Independence Day watching the fireworks and BBQing, you could be missing out on some serious savings. Fourth of July sales offer big discounts across a huge range of items—and you might be surprised to learn how many of your favorite retailers are participating this year. Whether you're looking for decor staples or bedding must-haves—there's a sale this holiday weekend with your name on it.

According to Courtney Sempliner, interior designer and founder of Courtney Sempliner Designs, there’s a reason why these summer sales are so great: “It’s seasonally time for retailers to unload pieces like outdoor furniture, entertaining items, and decor.” While “July Fourth is late enough in the summer season [that the demand] is lessening,” Sempliner added that there’s still enough warm weather left “to incentivize customers to add to their summer living essentials,” especially if the prices are low enough.

What Is the Fourth of July & Why Are There Sales? 

The Fourth of July (also known as Independence Day) celebrates the Continental Congress's passage of the Declaration of Independence, which announced that American colonies would be free from British rule. Much like Presidents’ Day and Memorial Day, the Fourth of July is a time for patriotism and appreciation—and loads of retailers also celebrate by slashing prices. 

When Do Most Fourth of July Sales Start? 

You’ll definitely see discounts on Sunday, July 4, 2021, but some sites get a big head start. Overstock, for example, has been taking off up to 70 percent since June 15, and they’ll continue the savings until July 5. At the very least, you can expect most sales to start a few days in advance.

What Is Usually on Sale for Fourth of July? 

The Fourth of July often signals the unofficial celebration of summer. As a result, “It’s a smart time to stock up on essentials like bed linens, towels, kitchen gear, and anything else you may have had your eye on for a while,” Sempliner said. If “your space is due for a refresh,” you should scout out “timeless and elevated” pieces that’ll still be on-trend come next year.  

Lucy Penfield, Design Principal of Lucy Interior Design, has another great point: “Retailers are clearing shelves for back-to-school,” and “peak summer means we have our gardens planted and we are ready to celebrate! We’re in the heat of the season so get it while it’s hot, literally speaking!”

In other words, if you’re willing to take a quick break from the grilled hot dogs, sunshine, and sparklers, you could find some awesome deals on furniture, housewares, outdoor decor, and health products, all of which are well-suited for summer.
