Looking for July deals, discounts, sales and free food? We spoke with Janice Lieberman from DealNews.com, who shared some of the month’s sweetest savings. We also rounded up the best freebies to look out for. So keep an eye out, and take advantage of these July deals.


1. Carraba’s Italian Grill


Let’s kick off our list with some free food! Through July 1, Carabba’s is giving away a free lasagna when you order their Chicken Bryan, Chicken Marsala, Pollo Rosa Maria, or Chicken Trio. Click here to find a location near you.


2. Amazon Prime Day


Amazon Prime Day marks one our of favorite days for July sales! Don’t have a membership? There’s a free trial! Some things are on sale for the whole event, while “lightning deals” can last just a few minutes. So if you have your eye on an item, use the Amazon app to set up an alert. These sales can last only about thirty hours, and fall on different days each year. In the past, it’s been the second Tuesday of July, but TechRadar screen grabbed an Amazon banner posted in error – and since removed! – that says it’ll be on the 16th and 17th this year.


“It promises to be a very big shopping day, not necessarily a great sale day,” says Janice. Meaning there are a lot of filler deals that are okay, but not the best prices you’ll see. “What you can find are Kindles on sale. Also, if you want to upgrade an Alexa, that’s a good time to buy one,” she adds.


In addition to Amazon’s own devices, categories to watch include toys, smart home devices – and some pretty good prices on TVs if you don’t want to wait until next year’s Super Bowl sales.


3. Dairy Queen


Free food alert! Download Dairy Queen’s and receive a small blizzard on the house when you register for an account. Snag the app on iTunes or Google Play.


4. House Paint


Next, retailers are betting it’s too hot to climb that ladder, so they’re putting exterior house paint on sale. So pick up some great pails of paint for up to 40% off on selected colors at Sherwin Williams or Lowe’s. Lowe’s will feature “buy one, get one” deals, and participating Sherwin Williams will knock up to 40% off collections. If you love home improvement, this is one of the best July Sales for you!
