Bargain hunters may be wondering if retailers are cutting prices in honor of Independence Day.
We tell you what you need to know about the 4th of July sale and how to find the best deals.
Does July 4th have sales?
Yes, many retailers are reducing their prices a few days before and during Independence Day, July 4th.
For example, Macy’s has already slashed prices by up to 60% on items ranging from fashion and beauty to housewares and gadgets.
While Wayfair has also reduced the prices of some furniture by up to 60%.
Home Depot shoppers can also find discounts over the long weekend, with deals on tools, appliances, grills and paint.
What is the feast of July 4th?
July 4th, also known as Independence Day, is celebrated annually in the United States on July 4th.
The holiday is celebrated to mark the day the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
The day was not made a federal holiday until 1870.
It remained an unpaid federal holiday until 1938, when Congress changed Independence Day to a paid day off.
Many Americans celebrate with picnics and fireworks, while many retailers are slashing their prices.
HP’s July 4th sale has also already started, taking technology up to 58% off, while Lenovo is also offering a huge 58% discount.
Most sales appear to end at midnight on July 4, although there are a few exceptions with discounts until next week.
However, some retailers have limited-time offers that will end at various times throughout the weekend.
In other words, if you are looking for something specific, it is best to act as soon as possible if you are worried about missing something.
How to find the best deals
Just because something is offered or is part of a sale doesn’t always mean it’s a good deal.
There are plenty of comparison websites out there that will check the prices for you – so don’t pay more than you need to.
Most of them work by comparing prices from hundreds of retailers.
Here are a few that you can use:
- Google Shopping is a tool that allows users to search and compare product prices on the web. Simply enter keywords or a product number to display the search results.
- CamelCamelCamel only works on products sold on Amazon. To use it, enter the URL of the product whose price you want to check.
- Honey is a price comparison tool that allows you to compare prices through your browser. He can also find coupons and codes to save money on the items you check out.
It’s important to note that unless you’re already planning on making a purchase, it’s not much of a savings.
Before purchasing, also be sure to check if there is any shipping cost.
Many retailers also cut prices ahead of Memorial Day in May.
Last year, Americans flocked to beaches and parks to take advantage of the July 4 vacation as the coronavirus rose across the country.
It came after celebrations were called off across the country over fears that Covid cases would climb if lockdown measures were lifted too soon.
