Dear Shopaholics: Black Friday in July is still happening

Black Friday in July sales still happening

Amazon Prime Day was July 16 through July 17 (Target also had their massive sale) — but Black Friday in July is still going on, and you can get deals at your favorite stores this weekend while it still lasts.

It’s the pre-Turkey Day event that spans a few weeks in the summertime (but we aren’t complaining). 

What is Black Friday in July?

Retailers reportedly started participating in this event to counter Amazon Prime Day. This year marks the event’s third go-around.

Over the course of this month, stores like WayFair, Best Buy, Macy’s, JCPenney — even Forever 21 — lowered their prices on select items and gave you plenty to cheer about (after all, who doesn’t love a good sale?).

When is Black Friday in July?

So, how long does this holy grail of bargains last?

The event’s website states that, though it differs from store to store, most sales took place around the second week of July to coincide with Prime Day. 

But, there’s good news. Even if you missed deals at Lord & Taylor, Macy’s and Reebok, some Black Friday in July sales are still happening now. Get your credit cards ready.
