It’s that time of the year again. Yep, I know, I can hardly believe it either. Oh wait, you don’t know what I’m talking about? Wellllll….
I don’t know about you, but last year I went basically crazy over the amount of amazing products that were released for the sale!
Since I felt like I had a super successful experience last year, I wanted to give you a little guide for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – it can get a little hectic. Just follow these guidelines while keeping these dates in mind, and you’ll be able to navigate the sale like a champ!
PS: I apologize in advance for the lengthy post, but I feel it’s my duty to help you navigate through the biggest sale of the year!
WHAT IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE
Oh ya know, it’s only the biggest sale of the year! And I mean that. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale gives customers and inside peek at what’s coming for fall…and allows them to shop at a discounted price!
Last year was actually my first time shopping the sale, and I seriously couldn’t have been more in my element. I literally woke up at 6AM to shop the sale (not joking, check out this post). I’m pretty much obsessed with fall (it’s my favorite season), so this sale is everything I could want and more!
OK, OK FINE. WHEN DOES THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE BEGIN?
Glad you asked!;) There are two dates that stick out to me:
– CARDHOLDERS: Yippee! We get to shop the sale a week earlier than everyone else! Early access begins July 14 and ends July 21.
– ALL CUSTOMERS: If you’re not a cardholder, the sale begins on July 22 and ends on August 7.
and I was SO happy I was a cardmember. If you’re not, I suggest applying here – it makes everything SUPER simple, especially when you’re frantically trying to check out!
WHY SHOULD I BECOME A CARDHOLDER?
If you’re a cardholder, you’re granted early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (which begins July 14). This is a GREAT way to snag all of the items you’ve been coveting from the catalogue at discounted prices! Trust me, don’t make the mistakes I did (#rookie) – buy what you think you want, and you can always return if you don’t love. Things will sell out. And then you’ll be sad. I promise. If credit cards aren’t your thing, you can open up a debit card (the money comes right from your personal checking account!), and still get the same benefits!
YEAH, NO. I DEFINITELY DO NOT WANT TO OPEN A CARD. SO NOW WHAT?
I totally understand. And you’re actually in luck! Right now, Nordstrom is running a great promo – if you sign up to become a Nordstrom Rewards Member (up till July 10), you’ll receive a $10 reward to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale once it opens to the public! How’s that for an incentive?!
ALRIGHT, LET’S TALK ABOUT THESE DEALS…
They’re unbelievable. Most of the items are between 25% and 30% off, but somtimes you can get even 40% off brand new items! Every department has different deals…think about all of the fall things you can get (like riding boots, home decor, cashmere, and even a present for your significant other – they’ll really love you)! Personally, I love stocking up on cashmere and “pricier” items that I know I’ll get so much use of in the chillier months. I also allot some money to go towards trendier pieces that are heavily discounted – these may include things that I normally wouldn’t buy.
Still with me? If you are, CONGRATS 😉 You’re now going to be a freakin’ pro while shopping the #Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to ask! And if you’re a seasoned shopper who quickly skimmed this post….that’s okay too because I’d LOVE to know any tips you have below in the comments!
