We are days away from the Nordstrom sale! This is the most anticipated sale of the year. I love to shop, especially sales so I have a ton of tips and tricks to help make this Nordstrom anniversary sale the most successful one yet. If you missed last weeks post on all the important dates, you can click (Here)
So what is all the fuss over this sale? This sale is a release of all brand new merchandise. Yup, this isn’t last years unsold items or things they are trying to push out of the store. These are the top brands newest fall collections. I know summer just started but fall will be here before you know it, and these pieces will be full price…so buy those booties now!This isn’t a sale, this is pretty much every shopper’s Superbowl and you can’t just show up and win, am I right! You need to prep, plan, and conquer if you are going to get all the items on your wishlist. Last year I was able to get almost everything on my list, and I did this with some tips and tricks I learned over the past 6 years of shopping the Nordstrom sale!
First, I can’t stress this enough…..sign up for the Nordstrom Credit card to gain early access. This allows you to shop on July 12th and have a much better chance of scoring all the pieces you have been eyeing. There is no annual fee and you receive $40 in Nordstrom Notes if you spend $100 the day you open up your card, you will also get 2 points for every $1 spent which helps you rack up points for additional Nordstrom notes!
The Nordstrom sale catalog was released last week. This is a sneak peek of the items that will be available. So much more will be launched the day of early access. It will be very overwhelming, and you will want it all…TRUST ME!! Compound a list of the top items you need for your fall wardrobe.
I have mentioned before, and believe me when I say: THINGS SELL OUT FAST. Take advantage of Nordstrom free returns & free shipping! If you are unsure of something, snag it. It could be sold out minutes later. This way you can get all the things you really want. You can’t beat the Nordstrom return policy so you have nothing to lose. Don’t sit on it, if you think you want it, snag it. You can always return it for free.
Nordstrom carries many of the sale items in the store, however online is the best way to shop this sale because they have a much larger inventory. If you don’t want to wait for shipping you can narrow it down by store, place your order and pick it up in store within 2 hours. Many Nordstrom stores now offer curbside pickup if you are in a rush! seriously, can’t beat that!
Another tip that my friend Kelsey from ChasingCinderella reminded me of is to place a few small orders over one big one. Sometimes in the process of trying to fill a large order, a few items actually sell out. Yup, items are moving that quickly! Every order ships free so it won’t cost anything extra on your end.
If you are a Nordstrom cardholder you have triple point days available to you. Choose the day you plan to shop the sale to rack up points and receive Nordstrom Notes to shop with.
Last, and most importantly – LET ME HELP YOU! Covering this sale is one of my favorite things to do. Make sure to bookmark my Nordstrom sale tag at the top of my blog to refer back quickly. I plan to have a try-on session go live within minutes of the sale opening for Early access over on my Instagram.
