15 Best Fourth of July Freebies, Discounts and Deals
No Fourth of July celebration would be complete without the following: barbecues, picnics, vacations and fireworks displays.
According to the National Retail Federation, in 2014 more than 153 million Americans were expected to spend an estimated $6.2 billion ($68.16 per household) on burgers, snacks and food to celebrate Independence Day. And the American Pyrotechnics Association found that consumer fireworks revenues have increased steadily over the years: $645 million in 2012, $662 million in 2013 and $695 million in 2014.
While this type of cash flow keeps the U.S. economy stimulated, paying the full price for Fourth of July necessities and other everyday items can leave your wallet empty.
