When is the 4th of July 2022?

While we know that Independence Day is on July 4th, this year it falls on a Monday, which means the federal observed holiday will take place on July 4th.

Independence Day is an annual celebration in the United States to commemorate the passage of the Declaration of Independence that took place on July 4, 1776.

When do 4th of July sales start?

Most 4th of July sales will kick off the week before the holiday, which means we should start to see deals pop up in late June. This year, the highly anticipated Prime Day sale takes place on June 21 and 22, which means retailers might hold off on promoting 4th of July offers till after the two-day Amazon event.

All 4th of July sales will last through the holiday weekend, and most will end on Monday, July 5. We'll be updating this page daily with all the best early bargains, so make sure to check back for new discounts and deals.

What are the best 4th of July sales

The biggest categories discounted during the 4th of July sales event include appliances, patio furniture, mattresses, clothing, and tech items like laptops and TVs. Because the 4th of July marks the middle of the summer, you can find clearance items on several outdoor items such as grills, patio furniture, planters, lawn mowers, and more.

The 4th of July is also a fantastic time to find deals on mattresses, with retailers like Casper and Temper-Pedic participating in sitewide sales. Home Depot and Lowe's are just a few retailers that will be discounting top-brand appliances all weekend long, and tech retailers like Best Buy and Dell have fantastic deals on laptops, TVs, headphones, and more.

We found the 12-inch deep, medium-firm mattress to be extremely comfortable and supportive when we slept on it. Nectar's summer snooze fest doesn't drop the price any lower than it's been in recent months, but this deal is still phenomenal value. Not only is there a $400 discount, you get sheets, two pillows and a mattress protector worth $399 added to your order for free.

Saatva Classic mattress: from $849 at Saatva

It's a premium innerspring hybrid, with outstanding comfort, pressure relief, temperature regulation and edge support (it aced the tests from our friends at Tom's Guide). The current $200 discount when you spend over $975 at Saatva isn't anything new - we see this deal most of the year - but the mattress was already competitively priced, and with $200 off it's even more of a bargain.

The DreamCloud: from

The DreamCloud: from $1,198 $699 + $399 of free gifts at DreamCloud
Save up to $899 - If you like the look of the Nectar mattress deal above but prefer a hybrid instead of all foam, choose the Dreamcloud. It's another medium-firm option, with a little more bounce than the Nectar thanks to a layer of innerspring coils - but you still get some of the 'hug' of memory foam thanks to a contouring top layer of gel memory foam. It's a little more high-end than Nectar, and costs more as a result, but with $599 off the full price and $399 of free gifts, this 4th of July sale is worth considering.
