Should You Shop the 4th of July Appliance Sales?

There are several reasons you should indeed shop for deals during the 4th of July appliance sales. This year especially you’ll be able to score huge discounts if you plan your shopping well and narrow down your lists to the appliances you need and can afford.

Prime Day sales last month were hugely successful, but the emphasis during Prime Day isn’t as much on appliances and major purchases as it is on electronics for productivity and entertainment. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the other largest annual sales events. Black Friday sales encompass all categories, but once again electronics and devices of all types are major draws plus many shoppers use Black Friday as a chance to save on holiday gifts for themselves and others.

Early spring to the beginning of summer typically have the best selection and the deepest discounts on all things to improve, repair, and upgrade homes. Last year the pandemic forced many of us to spend much more time at home than usual. When we had to remain home and work remotely and our kids were required to stay home for remote learning, the initial reaction was a huge surge in spending on home office equipment for productivity and homeschooling devices for remote learning.

As we spent more time cooking at home, sales of small and large kitchen appliances took off. We worked out at home because most gyms were closed and many people didn’t feel safe going to gyms that remained open while the virus was raging. Accordingly, a run on home workout equipment quickly resulted in widespread shortages and long waits for treadmills, exercise bikes, and other equipment.

The longer the pandemic-related lockdowns lasted the more people decided to improve the comfort and overall quality of their homes. By this time in 2020 retailers’ inventories were often bare of home appliances and anything related to home improvement. This year the demand has continued, but now most manufacturers are back in production and retailers have been able to rebuild their inventories.

Because the demand for home appliances has remained strong, retailers stocked up on their inventories. Now that the traditional home appliance buying season is coming to an end with the 4th of July sales, however, this year is a particularly good time to take advantage of 4th of July appliance sales.
