WHAT IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?
This is the most popular sale of the year and for a good reason! Rather than a traditional sale where retailers are trying to move inventory, the sale items are brand new merchandise that hasn’t hit any retailers shelves yet. I’m talking high-quality blouses marked down to under $30 and designer Tory Burch riding boots for 40% off all the way to fresh holiday home decor, sweaters at a huge discount and everyday essentials like undies and bras.
On July 13th, the sale kicks off and will go through August 6th.
After that, the items that are left go back to their typical price point.
HOW DO YOU SHOP IT?
If you’re a Nordstrom debit or credit card holder, you can shop the sale before the public from July 13th through July 21st. If you are not a card holder, you’ll be able to access the sale on July 22nd. If you are not a card holder, you can apply via Nordstrom before the sale. Even if your card won’t be here in time, you can get approved and once the sale kicks off, simply send their customer service a chat and they will give you access!
WHAT ARE NORDSTROM CARD BENEFITS?
I am not a person that owns many debit or credit cards. I have my standard bank card, blog bank account card, J.Crew and Nordstorm. That’s it. I hate managing cards and don’t want to open myself up to more avenues of fraud, so I only own the two retailers, that in my opinion, are totally worth it. In addition to receiving Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access, you receive $20 notes for every X amount you spend. So if you’re a frequent Nordstrom shopper, you’ll earn little $20 gift cards throughout the year.
SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
Items sell out SO FAST so early access is highly encouraged if you’re wanting designer items like Burberry jackets and Tory Burch boots. Last year, items sold out SO FAST and while I saw some items get restocked, it was rare.
OKAY, SO WHEN CAN I SHOP?
Nordstrom debit or credit card holders receive first access to the sale on Jyly 13th through July 21st. Public access then runs through August 6th.
HOW SHOULD I SHOP IT?
I shop the sale from the comfort of my own apartment in order to be able to vet through all the sale items. Since I live right near a Nordstrom, I scheduled a time to pop in the day it kicks off so that I can quickly review piece for you. Fingers crossed! But to sum it up, if I was shopping only as a consumer and not a blogger, I’d 100% just shop and order online because Nordstrom has the best return policy. They provide free shipping and free returns – no questions asked.
