It's no secret that it's hot in July but there are also some hot deals to find if you know what you're looking for.

July is a great time to buy furniture for your home. New models arrive next month so retailers are making room now, which means good deals for you.

Back-to-school sales are starting this month, but you should wait until August for the better deals, according to Especially, if you're looking for laptops.

You can also find good deals on outdoor gear. Right now, Cabelas has up to 60 percent off their camping items.

And Amazon is doing it again. Amazon Prime Day is Tuesday, July 12, and despite a lot of duds last year, the retailer is calling it their biggest event ever.

So, research prices now to find out whether you're getting a good deal.
