Hooray - you enjoyed the 4th of July festivities without getting pulled into the retail sales frenzy! But now that the flurry of holiday sales has passed, what are the real retail bargains in store this month? Right this way, you savvy shopper, you...
The Deals During Prime Day on Amazon
Billing itself as a "global shopping event", Amazon celebrates twenty years in business this month with for-Prime-members only sales on July 15th across all kinds of shopping categories. Similar to how the site structures Black Friday sales, it will be offering new deals as often as every 10 minutes beginning at midnight.
Where to look: Amazon, for Prime members only
Have you made it this far into the summer without an air conditioner? Maybe a great deal will tip the scale for you.
Outfitting your outdoor space gets cheaper the longer into the summer you wait. If you don't want to wait until summer is on its last legs, you'll still find a lot of reductions on outdoor furniture this month.
If you've been holding off buying a new fridge, oven or washer/dryer, look for sales during the first half of July. If you miss the sales early in the month, you should probably hold off until August for a good price.
Back to School
Didn't school just end? Yes, but retailers will hawk back-to-school products (backpacks, lunch boxes, clothes, supplies, etc.) all summer long, often at a discount.
