nordstrom anniversary sale top 5 tips
- Get a Nordstrom credit card even if you only use it to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale once a year.
You will get early access to the NSale on July 10th, and many of the items that I love will sell out on the first day of the Early Access. I’m not saying go into debt by any means AT ALL!! Pay off that thing entirely each time you spend, but get the Nordstrom credit card so you can get early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Nordstrom is offering a special bonus for card members where you can get a $60 bonus Nordstrom note if you apply before July 12th. You can view all of the details HERE.
- I’m going to go to shopping at Nordstrom on the day before the Anniversary Sale early access starts so make sure to check back here to see everything I recommend buying. I’m a less is more kind of girl, so I’m going to scour the scene to pick out the best of the best items of the sale and let you know details on sizing so you can order the right sizes. I’ve been shopping this sale for many years so I have the expertise to compare what has gone on sale in the past and know the best items to look for.
- The whole point of a sale is to save money on items that you are going to buy anyway! Don’t get sucked in to buying items that you are only going to save a few dollars on. The items that I always buy every year are: Jeans (I will save at least $50 per pair on premium denim), boots and booties (my absolute favorite pairs have come from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and I will save close to $100 on many pair!), Pajamas (Nordstrom has a pair that I always love to buy because they are as soft as butter), and gifts for people that I am planning to buy for. I’m going to do a whole blog post on gifts that I like to stock up on!

- Use your Nordstrom double points day during the sale! This is the time that I spend the most money at Nordstrom, so I choose to use my double points day during the time when I shop for early access so I can get the most reward dollars back.
