A very happy July fourth, indeed!
You may be mostly excited for fireworks and grilled everything this week, but don't forget the other way America traditionally celebrates a major holiday: With frenzied sale-a-thons at nearly every retail store—from sea to shining sea.
If you've been waiting to add dinnerware sets to your cabinet or to splurge on a Ninja blender, July 4th is the time to check your budget and watch prices fall.
To save you some time, we've gathered information on some the 4th of July sales worth keeping an eye on. Given the incredibly middle-of-the-week location of this year's holiday, the sales appear to be split across two complete weekends. Some sales may last all week long—while others will only last this weekend—so don't delay.
Outdoor Dining Sets:
Wayfair: Furniture is one of the hottest categories on Wayfair, and the sale the e-commerce giant is running on outdoor sets is too good to pass up. All outdoor dining sets are on sale for up to 65 percent off the original price
Target: Everyone's favorite superstore has great deals on outdoor dining and patio sets: save up to 30 percent, like this 7-piece dining set for just $110. Enjoy an extra 15 percent off when you use code "AMERICA" through July 5.
Crate&Barrel: Outdoor furniture, lounge sets, and grilling accessories are discounted by 50 percent right now. Essentials include this $11 party platter serving tray. Plus, the clearance section at Crate&Barrel is eligible for further discounts up to 60 percent.
Williams Sonoma: All the beautiful cookware you spend hours ogling at Williams Sonoma is much cheaper than normal right now, with discounts reaching up to 65 percent off. You can save $800 off their signature Thermo-Clad 10-piece stainless steel cookware set, or you can grab a super sturdy thermo-clad frying pan for just $100. This high-end store is reducing sale prices by an additional 20 percent, and nearly every category of kitchen item is on sale through July 6.
Sur La Table: You heard it right: SLT is offering up to 45 percent off all Le Creuset items. A 3.5qt Le Creuset classic French dutch oven is just $179. Yes, really. Other deals include 56 percent off a 10-piece All-Clad stainless steel cookware set, bringing the $1600 set down to $700.
Bed Bath and Beyond: The kitchen and dining section at this retailer is full of sales both in stores and online through the next week while supplies last. Everything is up to 50 percent off, including extensive sets of cookware, or singular items like this 4-quart Staub dutch oven for just $199.
Lowe's: This hardware superstore is clearing its stock on grills for the year by slashing prices. You can snag a brand new grill, like this $169 Char-Broil 5-burner gas grill and enjoy free shipping and installation through your local store. Lowe's July 4th sales event ends on July 5, and includes other deals like 40 percent off outdoor dining furniture.
Macy's: The department store is running a deep 20 percent discount on nearly every item in stock, but you can cash in on 25 percent off appliances like this KitchenAid stand mixer when you donate $3 to charities for military and veterans at checkout. Enjoy free shipping at $49, and a mail-in rebate on most items in the kitchen department. Sales go through July 8.
Sur La Table: All clearance online at Sur La Table's website is on an additional sale of up to 65 percent off, which is great in its own right. But one particular deal that caught our eye is that all food processors and some blenders are discounted by 55 percent off through the holiday weekend.
For the dining table:
Anthropologie: You might sleep on Anthropologie given that they mainly sell clothing—but there are endless tablescape additions to be found. And all of them are on an additional 25 percent discount this week, like this adorable marble cheese board for $99 (imagine the Instagram likes!).
Pottery Barn: Whether you're eating inside or outside, Pottery Barn's July 4th Megasale is a treasure trove. There are all sorts of table additions (these rustic terracotta vases are only $79 for a set of three). Enjoy up to 70 percent off all sale items through July 6.
Urban Outfitters: The seemingly never-ending apartment section of Urban Outfitters' sale offerings are on an additional 30 percent discount through the end of July 4. You can find stylish new additions for your home on the "low low"—like this chic geometric coffee table at just $99.
Bloomingdales: The entire home department within Bloomingdales is stacked with multiple sales, from 20, to 30, or even 40 percent off. From ice cream-themed pool floats ($44) to an entire new set of glassware for entertaining ($112), taking advantage of Bloomingdale's July 4th sale event is as easy as clicking here. Hop to it—this sale ends at midnight on July 4.
IKEA: All month long, you can shop kitchen items at IKEA and enjoy an additional 15 percent off as well as free delivery and installation on any purchase. But next weekend, July 7 and 8, you can also cash in on $25 off any order over $150 with a special coupon.
