What to buy during July 4th sales

Unlike most other holidays, July 4 is a good time to buy big-ticket items, according to the deal spotters at Dealnews.

Look for certain retailers to dominate the discounts, including Macy’s, where last year shoppers got 50 percent off a range of items with an extra 15 to 20 percent off certain categories such as swimwear and watches.

The Fourth of July is a good time to buy in-season summer apparel, which will be deeply discounted to make room for back-to-school merchandise. Macy’s and Kohl’s top the list of retailers for these deals, as well as H&M, say Dealnews experts.

Discounts on patio furniture will range from 40 – 60 percent off at Home Depot and Sears. Try to stack offers to get the best deals.

There will be discounts offered on electronics such as laptops and tablets, but if you hold off until August, the height of back-to-school season, the deals may be even better.
