"Those shopping through FatWallet can double up on savings by stacking increased cash back with summer discounts."

5 tips for what to buy in July:

  • Early 4th of July sales offer consumers a chance to cash in on July's hot buys without sacrificing their holiday weekend fun time. Look to stack early discounts with increased cash back to bolster savings.
  • Laptops and computers see sharp price drops in July. Shopping ahead of the busy back to school sales season can assure buying from a better selection of models and features.
  • Outdoor sports gear, toys and games can all be found on sale throughout the month.
  • Summer clothing sales start to sizzle mid-July. Look for B1G1 sales on tank tops, sandals, shorts and deep discounts on swimwear and eyewear.
  • Like June, home improvement sales are readily available as many many Americans choose to use vacation time for working outside around the home. Look for sales on paints, stains, tools and building materials, especially early in the month.
