Nordstrom's annual Anniversary Sale is almost here (early access starts July 13th), so today I'm sharing my tried and true tips to make the most of it. If you follow these guidelines, you'll be sure to get everything you need for fall and winter at unbeatable prices (and still money left over for pumpkin spice lattes and Christmas presents)!
TIP 1- GET EARLY ACCESS
Early access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts on July 13th, and a lot of the hottest items sell out before the sale opens to the public. It's really easy to sign up for a Nordstrom credit or debit card and this will get you early access! The debit card option is amazing if you don't want another credit card because it's just connected to your bank account, but you still get Nordstrom rewards for shopping- hooray! Last year I signed up for the debit card about a week before the sale and was still able to use it, but don't wait a minute longer and apply now so you can have early access!
TIP 2- HAVE A GAME PLAN
When the Nordstrom Anniversary sale starts, if you don't have a game plan you'll probably end up browsing for too long and once you find what you want, it will be sold out (trust me- you don't want to have that heartbreak)! Items fly off of the shelves during the sale because the deals are just that good (brand new fall and winter items are 30% off or more!). Creating a game plan in the form of a specific shopping list before the sale even starts is the best way to grab everything you want before it sells out!
TIP 3- MARK YOUR CALENDAR & SET AN ALARM!
Once you have your list ready to go, mark your calendar and set an alarm for the moment the sale starts:
- July 13th early access starts at 12am PST.
- July 21st public access starts at 12am PST.
- August 6th the sale ends and prices go back up August 7th.
TIP 4- GET A SNEAK PEEK OF THE SALE ITEMS!
Unfortunately, items included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are all brand new fall and winter pieces that aren't online yet. Fortunately, you can get a sneak peek at some of the amazing deals in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog! Take a peek and start planning your shopping strategy now!
TIP 5- NOT SURE? BUY IT ANYWAY
The deals during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are so good that you are guaranteed to have buyer's remorse for not getting that one thing you weren't sure about! When you shop online, shipping is free both ways, so you have nothing to lose!
TIP 6- CHECK BACK FOR RE-STOCKED ITEMS
If you aren't able to get early access and the piece(s) you wanted sold out early, make sure you check back daily to see if they were restocked. Also make sure you're following me on Instagram as I'll be posting about the sale and restocked items frequently!
