• July 4th sales are in full swing and there are tons of bargains out there to be found, so here we’re going to focus on food deals and freebies available from restaurant chains across the country.
  • There are plenty of great discounts to be found as well as some free add-ons with certain purchases.
  • Since the novel coronavirus is obviously a barrier for everyone this year, most of the deals are available for takeout or even delivery.

July 4th holiday is all about celebrating America’s freedom, but it’s not easy to feel free with all of the restrictions we have to deal with right now. Needless to say, it is of the utmost importance that we remain vigilant despite the urge to let loose a bit. The COVID-19 pandemic is worse right now in the United States than it has ever been in the past few months, and we continue to set new case number records each day. The only way to fight the spread of this potentially deadly disease is to wear face masks every time we go out, practice social distancing, and constantly wash our hands since good hygiene is a must. Yes, all that will put a damper on your Fourth of July plans, but it’ll also save lives. And if it’s any consolation, there are tons of deals out there to take advantage of this year for the holiday.

12-packs of Purell hand sanitizer and 24-packs of Purell that are actually in stock right now at Amazon are the hottest item of the weekend. You can also score Amazon’s best-selling 3-layer face masks for 50¢ each or popular MagiCare KN95 masks on sale for under $3 each. But July 4th is all about food and enjoying yourself, so let’s also discuss the best deals you can find this weekend from restaurants across the country.

Offers.com always rounds up all the best food deals and freebies available for all the big holidays, and the site did a terrific job finding hot July 4th 2020 deals. All the biggest restaurant chains in the country are covered, and you’ll find a great mix of discounts, freebies, and other special offers.
