TIP #1: Save the Date- Mark these in you calendar or bookmark this blog page to your computer or phone and click save!
July 12th, 2018 at 12:01 AM Pacific – Early access begins (This is ONLY for cardholders)
July 19th, 2018 at 11:59 PM Pacific – LAST day of early access
July 20th, 2018 at 12:01 AM Pacific – Public access begins
August 5th, 2018 at 11:59 PM Pacific – Sale ends & all items go back to original pricing.
TIP #2: Sign Up for Early Access- The sale starts July 12th for early access card holders. Last year I signed up for a Nordstrom card to get early access and I'm sooo glad I did because so many things that I loved did sell out. It was super easy to sign up and get approved too. The benefits to signing up for the early access cardholder is to shop the sale before everyone else does Y'all can do this online or in store. What you might find could be sold out when the sale opens up to the public on July 20th.
I can’t stress enough how fast the popular items will go! As a card member, you will earn 2 points for every $1 you spend and there are benefits for each level you reach. This year, Nordstrom has stepped it up a notch for those that sign up for a Nordstrom card. If you apply and are approved, you will receive a $40 Nordstrom Note towards your first purchase which you can use during the sale (this is DOUBLE what they offered last year which was a $20 Nordstrom Note)! If signing up for another credit card is not your thing, you can join their Nordstrom Rewards program. It’s completely free and easy to sign up, and you will earn $20 for every 2,000 points you earn.
TIP #3: Buy NOW, Return Later- If there's any take aways from these shopping tips this is the ONE to focus on!! Nordstrom has an amazing return policy that allows you to get what you want and be happy with it all at the same time. With that being said, the anniversary sale isn't a time to wait around to decide if you want something or not. TOP SELLERS WILL GO OUT OF STOCK!! I promise you that. Biggest advice: Nordstrom always offers free returns so take advantage. If you see something in the sale that makes your heart skip a beat, make sure you add it to your cart and check out immediately! Even if you were planning to shop the sale in person, you can order for store pickup, try it on and browse the store. Plus, if y'all don't have a store near you, you can order online and return via mail or return to a Nordstrom Rack too. It al will work... so it's a win win!
TIP #4: The Shopping Mindset: First off, it may seem kind of crazy to be looking at cardigans and booties when it’s 100 degrees outside, but it’s a great time to stock up!! It's super weird to shop for those things- trust me. Personally, that was the biggest mistake I made last year was not thinking in the future of what I need for fall and winter. Get it before it goes back to regular pricing. Y'all will SAVE in the long run. Secondly, if you're unsure about sizing, snag two sizes for those pieces you really love because there won't be reviews on Nordstrom.com since they're newer items. Remember tip #3??? It’s hard to say if the popular items will restock. There was a sweater last season that NEVER got restocked and I was ticked I did't snag it in time. There were items that were available during the early access that did not restock when public access began.(that darn sweater was it!) I’m not a risk taker type of girl, so I reccomand take the safer route and snag it while it's there.
TIP #5: Keep Your Eye Out- Persistence is KEY to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. One day your favorite piece might be sold out in you're size, the next day it could be back in stock! You NEVER know when things will be restocked, so keep checking! You just might score on your favorite item!
TIP #6: Preview The Sale- Nordstrom launches their anniversary catalog their website early so y'all can get an idea of some of your favorite pieces. Take a look at the catalog before hand always helps me know what to look for or what I need in my closet. Preivew all the different catalogs below too...
