Let’s talk about Belk Black Friday in July. Because let’s face it — Amazon isn’t the only sheriff in town anymore. And Belk’s deals are worth an honorable mention.
Because of all the Amazon Prime Day buzz, tons of stores started dropping their own mid-summer deals to compete with the retail giant. Belk was actually an early adopter, starting their Black Friday in July sale back in 2016.
While the July discounts are similar to the November Black Friday deals, the main difference is seasonality. You won’t find summer dresses, sandals, and swimsuits in November. And you won’t find Christmas decor, boots, and outwear in July. So it takes a little strategizing to know what to buy and when.
I’ll show you the main differences between Belk Black Friday in July and their November Black Friday sale, plus fill you in on which deals to shop in one sale versus the other.

Belk Black Friday in July is a limited-time sale that runs during Amazon Prime Day.
Belk may have started their Black Friday in July sale because of Amazon, but we aren’t complaining. Some deals in July are even better than they are in November, though the deals tend to differ by seasonality.
Belk Black Friday in July happens at the same time as Amazon Prime Day, it but usually starts a week or so before. You’ll find discounts on clothing, luggage, bedding, cookware, small appliances, and more both online and in stores at Belk.
You can expect the Black Friday in July sale to start the first week of the month.
While Prime Day doesn’t usually start until mid-July, Belk dropped their Black Friday in July sale early last year, on July 6. Deals ran for six days and ended on July 11 — smack in the middle of Amazon’s biggest sale (July 12 – 13, 2022).
Amazon’s Prime Day dates aren’t confirmed for 2023 yet, but if the pattern sticks, you can expect Belk to drop deals about six days before Amazon.
The main difference between Belk Black Friday in July and their regular Black Friday sale is seasonality.
Honestly, Belk Black Friday in July is a lot like their Black Friday sale in November. There are a few minor differences, like the fact that the November sale is a few days longer, and more categories get price drops. But as far as deals go, the discounts are essentially the same on cookware, small appliances, luggage, fine jewelry, and other top categories.
The biggest difference is that you’ll find discounts on summer items in July and winter items in November.
For example, Belk had a bunch of deals on beach towels, swimsuits, dresses, shorts, and sandals in their July sale. But in November, those discounts went to holiday decor, boots, flannels, outerwear, and pajamas for the family.
