When Do 4th of July Sales Start?

Independence Day sales appear far in advance of July 4, just like how promotions show up early for other holidays. Last year, the first July 4th sale we saw arrived around June 21 and was from Adorama. Prior to that, on June 8, Kohl's offered discounts on its 4th of July decor.

As for the 2022 4th of July sales? They're now in full swing! We saw Sam's Club kick off its 4th of July entertaining promotion on June 15, offering savings on outdoor furniture, grills, snacks, and other items. July 4th sales from Kohl's and The House were up by June 21, and now many other retailers have followed suit.

What to Expect From 4th of July Sales in 2022

what to shop during 4th of July sales

Get Up to 58% Off Electronics

You might not think that Independence Day sales would yield deals on electronics, but you'd be wrong! We tend to see quite a few promotions from popular retailers, with savings of up to 58% off or more. Look to stores like Adorama, B&H Photo Video, and Best Buy for solid deals. We expect them to offer up a wide variety of discounts on tech, photography, SSDs, monitors, laptops, TVs, phones, smart devices, and other items.

In the market for a new computer? Then watch for Dell Refurbished to once again offer 40% off desktops, laptops, and other products, while HP could knock up to 58% off like they did in 2021.

Score Apparel That's Up to a Whopping 90% Off

Clothing sales make up a large part of the July 4th sales every year, and this year should be no exception. Early sales may feature more middle-of-the-road discounts, with stores like Kohl's taking up to 60% off along with an extra 15% off orders of $100, and Eddie Bauer cutting an extra 50% off.

Interested in designer goods? July 4th is a good time to watch for sales on these items. Last year, Michael Kors took up to 60% off, plus offered an extra 15% off for KORSVIP members. J.Crew Factory had their own event and took 40% to 50% off, while Vineyard Vines knocked up to 60% off and Lucky Brand cut up to 50% off, plus offered an extra 10% discount.

Early 4th of July clothing sales may offer middle-of-the-road discounts, with stores taking up to 50% or 60% off.

The 4th of July is also an ideal time to shop for shoes, regardless of which kinds you need. Joe's New Balance Outlet will likely take up to 68% off, while Clarks could take up to 60% off, Rockport could knock up to 75% off as well as an extra 20% off, and Shoemall could take 30% off $30 once again.

Note that retailers could offer early sales that are eclipsed by better deals closer to the holiday. For instance, last year Kohl's offered the initial sale mentioned above, but by July 4th, it was knocking up to 90% off. And we saw Reebok take 30% off sitewide on June 29 last year, followed by 40% off a day later.

Outfit Your Patio for Up to 70% Off

While summer isn't quite winding down around July 4th, it may be in the beginning stages of it, which may explain why we tend to see patio furniture deals pop up that are actually worth checking out. Most of the time we advise waiting until August to purchase these seasonal items, as that's when retailers start to clear out their stock of summer gear. However, July 4th offers a sweet spot where you can find notable bargains, and still have plenty of warm weather left to enjoy using these kinds of products.

Watch for stores like Crate & Barrel to take up to 50% off a variety of items, including furniture, while West Elm could cut up to 70% off, Costway could take up to 30% off, and Wayfair could knock up to 60% or 65% off. Look for department stores to have their own deals — JCPenney could have promotions like an extra 30% off orders over $75 or an extra 25% off orders under $75.

Keep an eye out for other retailers to have July 4th sales, too. Last year, Herman Miller, which is widely known for its office chairs, took an extra 15% off outdoor furniture. BBQGuys took up to 60% off a variety of items, as well.

Save Up to 70% on Outdoor Gear

Whether you're looking for new hiking accessories, comfortable clothing for the great outdoors, or sporting goods, know that July 4th sales have discounts you'll want to see. Watch for Backcountry to cut up to 50% off, REI to knock up to 66% off outdoor cooking items, and Speedo to cut up to 48% off, plus an extra 25% off.

Remember to watch for bigger promotions, too. Last year, The House took up to 70% off as well as an extra $20 off for every $100 spent, and Columbia cut 25% off almost everything, besides offering a $20 gift card with orders of at least $100.

Upgrade Your Large Appliances for Less

Large appliances are one of big-ticket categories that often go on sale during July 4th sales. That doesn't mean there will be any concrete discounts to shop, though. Last year, for instance, Sam's Club and Best Buy both offered such a wide range of savings on so many items that shoppers just had to dive in and see what they could find. Costco made the discount-hunting a little easier, and knocked up to $1,350 off select Samsung appliances. Watch for similar promotions this year, and be prepared to hunt around for specific brands or item discounts.

Get up to 70% off outdoor gear of all kinds, including clothing, sporting goods, and even cooking implements.

Save Thousands on Mattresses

Mattresses are another huge item found in July 4th sales, although some retailers are vague regarding the discounts they offer. For example, last year Sam's Club discounted a variety of items, including mattresses, but we didn't see them call out specific savings amounts. JCPenney, meanwhile, took up to 50% off select mattresses, and Costco knocked up to $1,000 off select models during their events. So specific discounts do exist — you just have to know where to look.
