Black Friday in July 2022

The middle of July really is one of the best times to shop all year, especially if you prefer shopping online and especially if you're looking for computers, tablets, headphones and kitchen/home appliances. From retail giants to small businesses and even Amazon third-party sellers, retailers prepare their Black Friday in July sales while watching and waiting for Amazon Prime Day to be announced then clamoring to one-up with their own low-prices. More than 250 retailers will be participating in Black Friday in July this year, including Best Buy, Walmart and Target. All that competition will undoubtedly translate to great deals for shoppers, which is why our team will spend July getting up early and staying up late to make sure you don't miss a single hot deal. Text KRAZY to +1 (208) 266-4466 and be the first to know when Black Friday in July 2022 deals go live, plus we'll share our favorite deals between now and then to get you warmed up and ready to shop. Major retailers that have yet to hold any official Black Friday in July sales include The Home Depot, Lowe's, Sephora, Ulta, Sam's Club, Costco and Bed, Bath & Beyond. Though Costco and Bed, Bath & Beyond had non-Black Friday sales that still cracked our top ten most popular deals last July, so for some stores, the deals are there and they've just not adopted the name.  

What is Black Friday in July?

Black Friday in July refers to the few weeks in mid-to-late July when retailers announce huge sales packed with hot deals, all meant to compete with the 48-hour Amazon Prime Day. These July Black Friday sales are relatively new — the term first appeared in 2012, but it wasn't until Amazon's first Prime Day in 2015 that things really heated up. Since 2015, Black Friday in July has become a concentrated group of sales occurring in mid-July, often overlapping with Prime Day. Many stores brand their event under a unique name: Walmart Deals for Days, Target's Deal Days and Kohl's Summer Cyber Deals. At KCL, our team of shopping experts track prices on hundreds of products every day of the year and Black Friday in July prices are truly worth the hype. At least half of the products we track typically hit yearly lows during Black Friday in July... sometimes even lower than Black Friday after Thanksgiving. You can read our top ten favorite deals below.  

When is Black Friday in July 2022?

Remember, Black Friday in July sales are built around Amazon Prime Day, which happens in mid-July and is confirmed for July 12-13, 2022. But a few stores tend to hold their sale a little earlier or later. Here's what we expect this year.
Stores that will start their Black Friday in July sales before Prime Day:
Amazon Prime Day will begin on July 12th. We predict these stores will hold a sale on or after that date:

What will be on sale?

You can expect the front pages of Black Friday in July ads to be very tech-focused. Expect Fire TV sticks and tablets, Apple watches and Airpods, headphones and Chromebooks. Black Friday in July tends to be more focused on smaller electronics. You will see TV deals, but nothing like the volume you'd expect during November. At KCL, we get excited about tech but also love to dig for great household deals too. Last year one of our favorite deals was on Bonzai brand inflatable water toys (Kohl's and Best Buy included them in their Black Friday in July sales). We also found Crocs, Birkenstocks and womens ankle boots on sale. Cookware sets, towels, air fryers, blenders, steam mops and garage storage totes were included in various Black Friday in July sales and became the most popular deals on KCL.

Are the Black Friday in July deals for members-only?

Amazon Prime Day deals are for Amazon Prime members only. If you're not a member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial ahead of the big day to take full advantage of the Amazon Prime benefits during the sale. Walmart and Best Buy have historically released their sale prices to all of their shoppers, though we won't be surprised if we see exclusive deals or early access to Walmart+ and Best Buy Totaltech members this year.
Target RedCard holders will save an additional 5% with their debit cards.
