Tip 1: Know the Dates
July 13th – Early access begins
July 20th – LAST day of early access
July 21st – Public access begins
August 8th – Sale ends!
“I want to pay full price” – said no one ever. Prices go back up to regular price August 4th. Don’t have regret over items that you didn’t buy, that would just be plain ol silly babes.
Tip 2: Shop Early!
Hot items sell out by the third day in Early Access so getting EARLY ACCESS is key!! All you have to do is be a Nordstrom Card Holder. You can sign up for a Nordstrom Credit here.
Pro Tip: Sign up by July 9th, you’ll also get a $20 Nordstrom Note (rewards certificate) if you spend $100 on the day you are approved. BUT you can SIGN UP day of the sale and use it immediately!! NO NEED TO WAIT FOR YOUR CARD TO COME! Woop woop
Tip 3: Get Rewarded
Sign up for Nordstrom Rewards and get $20 Nordstrom Note to shop the Anniversary Sale. As a Nordstrom Rewards member, you’ll get rewarded every time you shop with them (seriously—it’s that simple).
Depending on the level you achieve, you may be eligible for complimentary alterations, access to concierge service, access to purchase exclusive style experiences, private shopping parties, and an invitation to a Private Holiday Shopping Party.
Tip 4: Get a Sneak Peek
Sneak a peek. As I mentioned in my previous post here, Nordstrom posts its Anniversary Sale Catalog a few weeks before the start of the sale so you can start planning your fall wardrobe. Here is the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog… Take a peek and start planning!
Tip 5: Buy Now, Return Later
If you can’t decide, DO NOT let it sit in your cart or walk away. Buy it, and you can always return if you end up not needing the item. That is the perks of Nordstrom AMAZING return policy. I have missed out on so many items because I didn’t pull the trigger fast enough – not fun babes
Pro tip: If an item is sold out in your size, buy it in another size and hold on to it!! They will sometimes restock the items after the sale ends, and at that point you can just exchange the item for your size.
Tip 6: Start Your Shopping Here
I am taking a couple days off just to shop at the Seattle Flagship store so I can put together THE BEST guides so you don’t miss out I am doing all the legwork so you don’t have to.
You will be seeing a lot of my NSale series but I am only recommending items that I personally will be buying or love. I will posting lots of stories about sizing, etc.
So be sure to subscribe to my newsletter here!
Tip 7: Shop ONLINE!
I am such a huge online shopping advocate. Here are the reasons why:
– Styled: You can actually see the items being styled!
– Comfort: You don’t have to fight the crowds and shop comfortably in your PJs
– Real Reviews: You can get reviews by your favorite bloggers or real people
– Free Shipping/Returns: You can always order 2 sizes if you aren’t sure about sizing as Nordstrom provides free shipping/returns. The box comes with free return label.
There are my seven pro tips to shopping Nordstrom Anniversary Sale babes. Each year, I always snag a good pair of bootiesin neutral color, a good wool coat, denim, and watches. Designer handbags are a must. I like shopping for my boyfriend and home too.
