I can’t believe it is already JULY! Ladies, we are already more than halfway through the year. Does that not blow your mind? July is a very special and fun month always because 1. It’s my birthday month (where the Cancer peeps at?!) and 2. the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I always luck out since it falls right next to my birthday, so I score some extra stuff from this sale for the upcoming seasons. Double win! Anyways, let’s jump into why you are here. The SALE! In this blog post I am going to be over the basics, what you need to know, tips and tricks, and also some sneak peaks at what you can score from this sale. Starting with the basics…

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

What is it, you ask? Just the greatest sale of the year. But really, it is! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a once a year event that occurs in mid July-August. You can get some amazing deals (that you will not see again) on end of summer items and a TON of Fall and Winter basics, that has not yet hit the stores. That’s one of the things that is so great about this sale, is that nothing included in this sale is available until the sale starts. So you get to see all new inventory and you get it on sale. I use this sale to stock up on Fall & Winter items since after this sale is over, you never see it on sale again (or if you do, it’s not on sale for as good these anniversary sale prices). Items included in this sale are pretty much from every department—beauty, women’s wear, shoes, active gear & more.

How can I get early access?

You can become a Nordstrom Cardholder.

Why should I apply for Nordstrom card?

A couple reasons! This is my first year shopping the sale as a personal Nordstrom cardholder. The past few years I have just gone with people who had them, but the deal was hard to pass up this year.

Sign up for a Nordstrom Credit Card now through July 10th and receive a $60 Nordstrom Note (gift card). When shopping, you will receive 3 points per $1 while shopping at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Trunk Club, and HauteLook. The more points you earn, the faster you will receive notes. And Nordstrom Notes are literally gift cards too Nordstrom. There is NO annual fee and they offer 24/7 customer service.

What else do I need to know? Tips + Tricks

A few things, actually!

  1. If you want something, GET IT! Items go fast, and they usually do not restock, until after the sale is over. It is 100% better to buy it and return it later than not buy it and it be too late.

  2. Just apply for the credit card if you are on the fence about it. You get early access, a $60 gift card (note) and you get the perks of being a card holder. Another reason to get the card is like I said, items usually don’t restock. So that mean when the sale opens to the public, a lot of stuff is gone and people are usually really irritated by this. If anything, just get the card to shop the sale! I grabbed the Nordstrom Retail card in case you were wondering.

  3. I will be doing a try-on haul of the Nordstrom Sale items as soon as the sale opens to cardholders (July 12th!), so make sure you follow closely on stories (@daniellealanareyes) to see what items will be best sellers and for what to get! I love being your guys “go-to” when it comes to sales, so I truly appreciate your trust in me when it comes to finding the best pieces.

  4. Save yourself and just shop online. Nordstrom is an absolutely MAD HOUSE the day the sale starts and it doesn’t die down until the day it ends, serious. If you are worried about sizing or fit, please keep in mind Nordstrom’ s return policy. It is the best of the best, and it is better to over buy during this sale then not buy at all.

  5. Keep others in mind, too! Not just women’s fashion is on sale during this anniversary sale. Literally EVERYTHING is! From shoes, to fitness gear, activewear, kids, baby, beauty, men’s, you name it— they have it on sale. Some people like to buy Christmas gifts during this time and it is great since you get the sale prices. Not to mention other peeps in the family need stuff too! 😉
