This year, July 4 falls on a Friday. And given the sales we're seeing (entire stores at 40% or 50% off!), it's looking a lot like an early Black Friday. Happy National Ice Cream Month!

The deals range from popular apparel stores to restaurant chains, and from travel sites to online banks. Here’s a rundown (all sales on Friday, July 4, unless otherwise noted).

Aeropostale: “Everything” is currently 50% to 70% off at Aeropostale; “everything” is in quotes because there are some exclusions. It’s unclear when the special pricing will end.

Banana Republic: Use the coupon code BRJULY for 40% off your entire purchase, now through July 7. Items in Banana Republic stores are also 40% off.

Baskin Robbins: Through July, Baskin-Robbins is giving customers a free waffle cone upgrade with any double scoop order, in honor of National Ice Cream Month. An even better, buy-one-get-one-free offer is good through July 6 with this coupon.

Bonefish Grill: The total bill for three takeout orders of spicy Bang Bang Shrimp is $19.99.

Boston Market: Use the coupon in the link for 50% off any family meal purchase.

Buca di Beppo: Print out the coupon linked from the chain’s Facebook page for $20 off two entrees or pastas, valid through July 6.

Calvin Klein: A 50% off sitewide sale is in effect for online orders made through July 6. Some exclusions apply.

Capital One 360: During the online bank’s “salute of financial independence” promotion, customers opening up a new savings account get a $76 bonus, and a new checking account comes with a $100 bonus.

Easy Spirit: Women’s shoes are on sale on a buy-one-get-one-50%-off basis.

Gymboree: 40% off everything, meaning savings of up to 70% on items already on clearance, at the children’s apparel store.

H&M: Select summer items (T-shirts, tube tops, blouses, sneakers) are just $4 apiece. Use the code FIREWORKS when making a reservation of at least $300 by July 4, for any date now through the end of the year, and you’ll get a $50 discount.
