AM Inbox: First reference to the 4th of July

The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:

Oriental Trading, 6/2 — Get free shipping + $5 off patriotic favorites‏
Although Oriental Trading doesn’t mention the 4th of July or Independence Day explicitly, because of the patriotic content I’m going to call this the first reference to the holiday. Oriental Trading used similar messaging in the weeks leading up to Memorial Day. For insights and trends to help you plan your 4th of July campaigns, check out the 2008 4th of July Season Finale.
