4 Tips on How to Get Fireworks Cheap

Getting the most out of your fireworks budget means being strategic and taking advantage of the right opportunities. Many fireworks shoppers don’t even think about purchasing their stash until May or June. For retailers and those with larger budgets, restock ordering time might come in January or February, but even then you could be missing out on the best pricing.

In our 30+ years of being a trusted fireworks supplier, we’ve seen shoppers get in the habit of ordering earlier and earlier each season. That’s because the key to getting the right price is to order at the right time and from the right place. Whether you’re buying fireworks for displays or for reselling at your business, here are four big things to consider for truly getting the “most bang for your buck.”

1. Save With Wholesale

If your fireworks budget exceeds $500 (which, especially in 2023 with inflation, is a very achievable number), your best bet is to go wholesale. Working with a wholesaler will automatically get you access to significant product savings on your orders. It’s also easy to shop for wholesale fireworks online!

One pyro Joel Robinson made this video about how simple it was to purchase his fireworks online, get them shipped to his door, AND save up to 50% on product costs in the process.

2. Order Early (Like…Now!)

When you shop during mid-to-late summer, you’ll get the absolute best prices of the entire year. As you may have guessed, many fireworks suppliers offer huge discounts – such as Spirit’s own summer sales including up to 40% off closeout items and up to 25% off popular products.

Up to 40% Off Closeout Fireworks from Brothers, Winda, Sky Bacon, Firehawk, and more at Spirit of '76 Wholesaler.

We know it may seem early, but restocking now can save you a LOT of money and it allows you to get a jumpstart on inventory for the next season or occasion. Post-4th of July fireworks shopping is the best time to get lower prices per unit across the board, resulting in significant cost savings for you to pass on to your customers or enjoy yourself.

3. Consider Drop Shipping a Container

If you’re a retailer anticipating on restocking a majority of your inventory, now is also the ideal time to participate in a drop ship container program in addition to hunting those case sales. These programs are a popular option for bigger seasonal retailers and year-round locations! Having your wholesaler coordinate the import, brokerage, and delivery of a container to you directly from a supplier will provide you with HUGE savings on your product costs and spare you the pain of regular shipping rates.

Cut major costs for your fireworks business by ordering a fireworks container.

The added benefit here is that your products won’t be delivered until the following spring, so you won’t have to worry about housing that inventory until closer to the 4th of July season. Learn about Spirit’s container program for the 2023-2024 season.

4. Use Your Supplier As A Resource
