15 Fourth of July Deals and Savings

Jun 29, 2021 | Good To Know, On a budget, Save Money

The Fourth of July is just around the corner, and smart online shoppers can find some monumental Independence Day deals. But just because summer’s underway, there’s no reason you can’t still find deep discounts on summer accessories, like grills, patio furniture, lawn and garden supplies, and much more.

We’ve put together a list of summer savings for you, and don’t forget to check out the Minute Loan Center Coupons center to find even more explosive Fourth of July deals.

1. The worst of the pandemic is behind us and warmer weather is coaxing us to leave the house and spend more time outdoors. If you’re lucky enough to have a deck, Home Depot is running a savings on deck stain. This will give your deck a fresh, new look and help extend its life.

2. While you’re there, you may as well take advantage of Home Depot’s deals on refrigerators. You can probably use a wider ‘fridge to keep your summer treats — watermelon, strawberries, lemonade — cool.

3. Best Buy is featuring big savings on open box appliances. These are the same appliances that you see in the store and have either been used as display models, or returned for some reason. For instance, you can save about $90 on a Samsung – 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave. You can also find great deals on front-load washers, chest freezers, and stoves.

4. It’s going to be hot, so you’re going to want to be comfortable and look your best. Check out Macy’s sale.

5. If you’re going to wear shorts, you may as well have a set of matching sandals, and you can start shopping for new footwear at Men’s Sandals | Dr. Scholl’s Shoes (

6. What’s summer without a cookout? And what’s a cookout without a decent grill to barbecue on? The old one has done its service, but maybe it’s time to upgrade to a Weber Original Kettle model. Lowe’s is running a flat 10% off Fourth of July sale on this — and other models — right now.

7. And there’s no sense getting a new grill if you don’t have anywhere to sit and enjoy your meal, so think about adding some new patio furniture to your outdoors deck or porch by shopping at Patio Furniture at

8. Just because you may have bought a new grill, that doesn’t mean you have to be in charge of the cookout this Independence Day. You can order a selection of steakhouse faves, like bone-in outlaw ribeye, filet, or porterhouse from LongHorn Steakhouse for curb-side pickup.

9. Steak not what you’re looking for? That’s all right. Red Lobster is featuring family combo meals starting at $7 per person at Order Online | Red Lobster Seafood Restaurants

10. A Fourth party is nothing without the red-white-and-blue decorations to liven it up, and Michaels is running a sale on all their Patriotic Party Supplies | Michaels

11. Tires may not be the first thing you think of when someone mentions Independence Day, but a car can definitely give you the freedom of the road, and Discount Tire will be running a Fourth of July sale on tires. You’ll need to keep checking back for it at Independence Day Tire Deals | 4th of July Tire Sale 2021 | Discount Tire

12. And if you’re getting new tires, you’ll probably want to give them a test drive, so you might as well consider a weekend camping trip. A Coleman Sundome Tent is weatherproof and easy to assemble. Check it out at : Coleman Sundome Tent : Sports & Outdoors
If this is your first camping getaway, you may not know what to bring or even where to go. Some National Parks are free, while others may require payment as well as a reservation. So you’re not caught by surprise, Readers Digest offers some helpful camping tips: How to Camp for Free — Free Camping at U.S. Campgrounds & RV Parks (

13. If your weekend getaway is more likely to lean toward the beach than the forest, skis, paddle boards, life jackets and more are being offered at Water Sports | There’s something for every taste and level of experience.

14. Everyone wants their own pool and this might be the summer to take the plunge. Tractor Supply Co. is offering a pretty good deal on above-ground pools at Bestway 14 ft. Oval Pool Set, 56715E at Tractor Supply Co.

15. You can save a bundle — and not terrorize the neighborhood dogs — by not buying fireworks this year. You can go to the city’s fireworks display, but the parking lot after the show can be a headache as everyone heads home at the same time. Instead, take a virtual trip to New York and watch their fireworks on NBC. They usually begin the broadcast at 9 pm EST.
