Memorial Day sales may have passed, but never fear, summer sales are just starting up, and there are tons of bargains to be had.  

Mark your calendars with these sales to find the best deals on tech, clothing, appliances and so much more.


June is a popular month for sales on home goods, hardware and electronics because of the Father’s Day sales. Check out sporting goods stores for big discounts on camping and outdoor gear.

June is also the month for semi-annual sales. Some of the top clothing retailers who run June semi-annual sales include Victoria’s Secret (now through June 19) and Zara (now through June 23).

If you want to stock up and save nearly 75% off on soaps, lotions, candles and wallflowers, don’t miss the Bath & Body Works semi-annual sale going on this month as well. When you order online, use Ebates for 1% cash back and code LUCKYDUCK for 20% off your $25 purchase.


The biggest sales in July are the Amazon Prime Day and Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Amazon Prime Day is basically Black Friday in July. Last year there were thousands of deals on everything from electronics to books, appliances, baby gear and more. Prime Day 2018 starts on July 10 at 9 pm EST and will last until July 12 at 3 am EST.

 The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is July 20 through Aug 5. If you’re a Nordstrom cardmember, you’ll get early access to purchase sale items before the public. During the sale you can enjoy huge savings on summer styles as well as new fall merchandise and shoes! So start thinking about the new fall boots and jeans you want, because July is definitely the time to buy them.


August revolves around back-to-school sales and tax-free weekends around the country.

Back-to-school sales start in late July and early August.

Last year Amazon offered up to 80% off school supplies, electronics, kids’ apparel and more. Target had buy-one-get-one-free offers on kids’ shoes and backpacks starting at $14 and school supplies as low as $1. Best Buy will usually run deals offering computers starting at $100 and additional discounts on smart devices, too.

Tax-free weekends are always busy shopping days. Each year certain states offer tax-free weekends, or a few days where shoppers can buy clothing, footwear, computers, weather preparedness gear, energy and solar products and more without paying sales tax. Tax-free weekends vary from state to state so look for the exact dates per state here, along with eligible items. Arkansas and Connecticut are just two of the states that have tax free weekends in August.

Extra Savings Tip: Because we are all about saving as much as possible on top of shopping sales, use Ebates to earn 1 to 5% plus cash back on everything you buy. It’s the easiest way double up on savings.
