Fourth of July sales on furniture and appliances are retail traditions this month followed by deep discounts on summer items, making July a great time to purchase home-related items.
So Long to Summer…
Now’s your chance to purchase summer items at a steep discount. Beach towels, patio equipment, summer sporting goods, outdoor lights, grills, outdoor tableware, and coolers will all be on clearance to make room for back-to-school and fall merchandise.
Look for sales on appliances over the Fourth of July weekend, with especially deep discounts on refrigerators. There’s something extra appealing about buying a new fridge in July. Dehumidifiers are also discounted in July.
If you’re in the market for a new roof, Consumer Reports says July is prime time for roofing materials to be discounted.
July Furniture Sales
Watch for Fourth of July deals on furniture and then again on other major three-day holiday weekends throughout the year — similar to the sales on appliances.
Before making any major purchase, do your homework. Consumer advocacy groups, websites, and magazines such as Consumer Reports, Wise Bread, Nerd Wallet, and Money, regularly publish buying guides and tips.
