How to Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Five Tips!


Hey guys…well it’s almost that time again.  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is just around the corner and it’s the best time to stock up on high-quality, reasonably prices staples for the upcoming fall season.  Here are 5 helpful tips to help you get ready for this one of a kind sale!

Tip #1 ~ Know the Dates: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially starts on Thursday, July 21st and it ends on Monday, August 7th.  However, if you are a Nordstrom cardholder, then Early Access starts on Thursday, July 13th.  Cardholders get to shop the sale exclusively for a week and then the sale opens up to the general public on July 21st.
           
HERE’S A LIST OF IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER:
Thursday, July 13th | Early Access for Nordstrom Cardholders Only
Thursday, July 21st | Anniversary Sale Open to the Public
Monday, August 7th | Last Day to Shop
Tuesday, August 8th | Prices Go Back to Full Price

Tip #2 ~ Sign Up for the Nordstrom Rewards Program: You can join Nordstrom Rewards Program without applying for a credit card and Nordstrom will give you a $10 Note to spend at Anniversary Sale.  With the Nordstrom Rewards program you will earn 1 point for every $1 spent (instead of the 2 points per $1 you get with the card) when you use cash or any card you want.  You get to use the Note during the regular sale period (July 21st-August 7th).  You must join Nordstrom Rewards as a Member by 11:59pm (Pacific Time) on July 9, 2017 and verify your mobile number to get this offer. Sign up for the rewards program HERE NOW! 

Tip #3 ~ Get a Nordstrom Card ASAP: The only way to get into the Early Access Sale is to have a Nordstrom credit or debit card. I for one I’m pretty happy that they offer these two options. I personally chose to open a Nordstrom Debit Card because I don’t have to worry about paying off another credit card bill.  The Nordstrom Debit card links to your checking account, so it’s just like using your debit card, but you get to earn rewards points instead.  When you open a Nordstrom Card, you’ll get  a $20 Nordstrom Note for earning 2 points per dollar at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook and Trunk Club. Read more about the Nordstrom Card and how to apply for one HERE.
Tip #4 ~ Start Planning and Review the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog: Whether you plan to shop the sale early or when it opens to the public, one thing that you should do is start planning early.  If you’re anything like me, then you’re going to want to buy just about everything that you see in the store or online during the sale.  But don’t worry, there are few things you can do to avoid over spending.  First take inventory of your closet to see what items you need to replaced or added to your fall wardrobe.  Then think about what wardrobe staples that you want to add to your closet, like a pair of new boots, a new leather jacket or a new investment handbag.  And finally check out the Anniversary Sale Catalog that Nordstrom released last week to start planning ahead.  The catalog will give you some great ideas of what’s in store for us over the next few weeks.  And make a list of the things that your interested in buying, so you don’t forget when you get to the store. This is also the time to create a wishlist of certain items if the price is right, like a new Rebecca Minkoff crossbody or a pair of designer jeans.
Tip #5 ~ Set a Budget and Stick to It: Another way to avoid over spending is to set a budget of how much you want to spend and stick to it.  Don’t go into debt trying to keep up with everyone else.  It’s very easy to lose control and pick up a few more items that you didn’t plan to buy, but it’s important to remember that Nordstrom has a very generous return policy.  So you don’t have to be worry about returning some items that don’t end up working out after a few weeks.
