Let Your Savings Account Blossom with These First Day of Summer Freebies and Discounts

The first day of summer is only a few days away. For most students, summer vacation has already started, but there’s always something special about celebrating the official start of summer by sitting by the pool for more hours than any other day in the year.

Most shoppers can enjoy saving money this time of the year, but the question remains: which establishments can savers look forward to receiving first day of summer deals and discounts from?

First Day of Summer 2013 is Friday, June 21

For many people, the official first day of summer represents warm weather, exciting vacations and a chance to spend more time outdoors with family and friends.

It’s also the only season when we have a chance to enjoy the summer solstice, a time when the tilt of the planet’s semi-axis reaches its maximum and, as a result, we get to enjoy the longest day of sunlight of the year.

This Friday, June 21 marks the first day of summer 2013. Being the start to the weekend as well, consumers can check out which retailers are offering freebies and discounts on and around this special day.
