They are as reliable as fireworks and firework-related emergency room visits on the Fourth of July. Independence Day sales at major retailers all across the country are a mid-summer staple for the mattress-starved masses. 

It's a solid time to hook yourself up with summer necessities you haven't yet found time to pick up: patio furniture, grills, summer clothing, and, of course, mattresses because mattresses are on sale over every holiday. You'll find these and more listed with steep discounts over the loooong Fourth of July weekend we're getting this year with the holiday landing on a Thursday. 

To help sort through the immense amount of noise, you'll find some of the best sales -- from places like Macy's, Target, Home Depot, Pier 1, and more -- highlighted below, because you don't want to spend the day off searching for deals when you could be lying on a blanket in a park thinking about the shape of clouds passing overhead.
