The biggest sale of the year is less than a week away, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! This is my favorite sale of the entire year. I wanted to share some tips & tricks to shopping the sale with you, snagging sell out risk items, and making the most out of it. The items on sale are ALL NEW FALL INVENTORY!! It is the perfect time to stock up on pieces for fall & winter. I snag sweaters, jackets, boots (hello Hunter boots!), and everything in between!
1 – Make sure to hit my site first thing in the morning to see what the best steals & deals are. I literally stay up all night long going through every single page of the sale. I then categorize it by women’s, shoes, outerwear, handbags, beauty, kids, baby, etc. It makes it easy for you to see what the best deals are, what items are going to be sell out risks, and to shop it quickly and easily. I also when my stuff comes in the mail do a full try on post with how things fit, if I am keeping it or sending it back, and then do full posts with pieces from the sale. Yes, I go all out for you babes!
2 – Sign up for a Nordstrom Card! This is I think the biggest thing. If you have a Nordstrom Card (debit or credit) you get to shop the sale early (starting next Thursday) before everyone else. If you sign up for a card now you also will get a $20 Nordstrom Note (which is like a gift card) to use during the sale. I have a $40 one sitting right at my desk to be able to use it when I shop! You can go into Nordstrom TODAY (Monday 7/10) for the last day to get a card before the sale.
3 – BUY & RETURN! Nordstrom has free shipping and free returns. I am not kidding when I say things sell out fast! I know a bunch of other bloggers will have their round ups and sharing what they are snagging. Go ahead and read them all. HOWEVER! Check out after you read each bloggers post before moving to the next one, add things to your cart, checkout, shipping is free, try it on and think about it when it comes or you won’t get it. Things fly out of carts faster than you would know. You can ship it all back for free if you don’t like it. Buy now, think about it and return it later.
4 – Shop online! Heading into the store is a lot. Some people love the rush, I prefer to be at home in my pajamas shopping it. Plus online has a ton more inventory than going into the store so you are way more likely to be able to snag the pieces that you want online.
5 – Shop things you wouldn’t think would normally be on sale. Basics go on sale only during the Anniversary Sale, beauty products are amazing deals, baby stuff can’t be found cheaper, and handbags are a must. The top selling items during the Nordstrom Sale are Shoes, Handbags, and Outerwear.
6 – Read the sale catalog. This thing is like pure happiness and lets you make a list of things that you are wanting to snag. Then when the sale goes live you can know what your must haves are, check out, and then go back and go through things again when you have your must haves ordered. If you don’t get one in the mail you can go through it online here.
7 – If you have a budget you want to stay by, click to shop pricing low to high. Then when you hit a price of what you don’t want to go over you simply just stop. You won’t be tempted to order things out of your price range. This is my biggest secret to shopping online all the time!
8 – Sign up for my newsletter. I will be sending out an email IMMEDIATELY when my post is live. Then you can click straight to it, shop what you want and check out. I am doing all the work for you (I’m shopping it anyways so why not!?) so head on over snag some amazing pieces, and we can be twinners mmkay!?
