This year, the 4th of July falls on a Saturday. Many families are going to try to take advantage of Independence Day deals and freebies, allowing them to make the most of their budget. While there may be fewer options due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that doesn’t mean there are no discounts to be had. If you’re looking for 4th of July deals and freebies, here are some options.
4th of July Deals
Major Retailer Sales
Retailers like Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club, and more usually discount seasonal items in celebration of the fourth of July. You may find price reductions on barbecues, outdoor furniture, lawn and garden equipment, sporting goods, pool supplies, and more.
Additionally, traditional cookout foods are often on sale. Hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, and similar options may be available for less.
Online-Only Retailer Sales
Online giants like Amazon, Wayfair, and Overstock are all having major sales on July 4. You’ll find outdoor items available with deep discounts, as well as sales on appliances, tech, and more.
Amazon Prime members can typically get free shipping. Additionally, both Wayfair and Overstock have many items available with free shipping, though it isn’t necessarily as fast as Amazon Prime’s 1- or 2-day options.
Home Improvement Store Sales
The same goes for home improvement stores. Home Depot and Lowe’s, for example, will have sales running with appliances, tools, patio furniture, grills, and more available for less than usual.
Mattress stores often throw amazing sales in celebration of major holidays, and Independence Day is no exception. You can find lower prices on select items or special bonuses (like free sheets or pillows) at stores like Casper, Leesa, Tuft & Needle, Mattress Firm, Sleep Number, and more.
Restaurants are also offering discounts to diners, including some specifically for delivery or curbside pickup orders. Here are some of the available options:
- Cheesecake Factor – Between June 19 and July 5, you can get seven times (two burgers, two fries, two drinks, and one piece of cheesecake) for just $20
- On the Border – The Liberita, a July 4th specialty margarita, is only $5 from July 1 to July 19
4th of July Freebies
Panera Bread Coffee Subscription
While this technically isn’t just for Independence Day, you can still get a Panera Bread coffee subscription for free if you sign up before July 4. You can use it for curbside pickup, too, allowing you to enjoy the freebie even if you don’t want to head into your nearest location.
Free Games for Amazon Prime Members
In July, Amazon Prime members with Twitch Prime accounts can get five free PC games. Starting on July 1, Dear Esther, Dark Devotion, Grip: Combat Racing, Kunai, and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil are available at no cost.
Other 4th of July deals and freebies may get announced as the day gets closer. Since the COVID-19 pandemic is still impacting nearly every state, to some degree, some businesses and attractions may not know whether they will be able to open on the holiday until immediately before. State and local laws and rules can change at a moment’s notice, so you may want to explore what’s available in your local area right before Independence Day to get the most accurate information.
