Hello friends and welcome back to ze blog. Let the excitement begin! The Nordstrom anniversary sale is going live next month. Which is next week! The sale officially starts August 19th and lasts until August 30th. Todays post I’ll be sharing all the details on early access, what dates and times to remember, answering questions, sharing my favorites and talking about the must haves. So let’s just dive in!
NORDSTROM SALE 101
The Nordstrom sale happens every year, usually at the end of summer. It’s pretty much Nordstrom Launching their new fall merchandise to shop. All of their new items go on sale and then they go back to normal price once the sale is concluded. This event will have fall, some winter pieces and plenty of home decor, baby wear, for him and tons more.
This year Nordstrom is doing things a little bit different. Nordstrom went ahead and sent out their preview of everything launching on sale via email and everyone was able to see everything. Since COVID and social distancing is still going. I totally suggest you prep to shop online rather then head to the store. But if your not into all of that they do have curbside available to buy and just pick up. (instead of waiting for your items to ship) You can buy online and pick up (curbside) that day or pick up next day if you’d like. Still super easy to shop!
Nordstrom is definitely leaning towards more of an online presence of items being fully stocked. Due to most folks not going in and trying on or shopping around. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you save items to your wishlist now. To help find things more easily and to stick to your shopping list/needs/wants. Keep in mind a lot of the popular items will sell out quickly so make sure you are up to date with your wishlist at Nordstrom.com. You can easily shop the sale with no promo codes needed. Every sale item will have the sale price listed in yellow above each product. (see photo below)

WHAT IS EARLY ACCESS?
Early access gives you the opportunity to shop 7 days before the actual sale begins. Why is it good to have early access? Cause sadly some items quickly sell out! So with early access you are able to shop before everyone else does without being a cardholder member. These are the perks to shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
If you want to gain access to shop the sale early you must be a Nordstrom Card member. It is very easy to apply and to get approved. (I personally don’t like credit cards and only did it to gain access) I do not use my card for anything else but this sale. The Nordstrom Card will solely work at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Haute Look, Trunk Club and that is it.
This year when you sign up for a card there is a $60 bonus note. As soon as your approved you may start shopping. If your card doesn’t arrive on time you still have your information that you can use to shop online and in-store just fine. Make sure to check your account for that information. Best thing about this card is that there isn’t an annual fee! Lastly with every dollar you spend, you’ll receive 3 points. Those points add up to use towards your notes which explains that here. Overall the most important part to having this card is to gain early access. Make sure you sign up before the sale so you can shop early!
WHY TO SHOP THROUGH BLOGGERS/INFLUENCERS
You’ve probably started hearing all the chatter amoungest bloggers about the #nsale happening. This is a yearly sale (if you don’t already know) that we promote and it helps us as small businesses. Weather it be from shopping through our links, swipe ups or blog. It helps us continue to do this every year and guide for you to the best deals, our personal favorites and what we buy and love. It truly means the world when you shop through us from what you’ll already be buying and it’s at never a cost to you. We are just a third party sending you to a product to buy. Every little commission we get we are EXTREMELY grateful for and it doesn’t go without tremendous gratitude that we get to do this for a living and enjoy doing what we love. What ever our particular niche is thank you SO MUCH!
Reminder: Please buy what you like, want or need. But ONLY if your budget calls for it and you’re able. Stick to your budget and your list. It’s rough times that we are in and people are facing very hard times this year. So please do NOT GO INTO DEBT for any sale. Nothing you don’t need is worth it to become financially unstable. Please keep this in mind and shop smart.
