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.
