Happy Monday! Today is a VERY exciting week and I look forward to it all year long! This week is the start of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale a.k.a the BEST sale of the entire year! I have shopped the Anniversary Sale since high school, and it is easily my favorite shopping day of the entire year. In case you aren’t too familiar with the sale, I am going to answer some frequently asked questions below. Make sure you stick around until the end of the post to check out this years catalog and to see an exciting FREE offer!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale FAQ’s
Q: When can I shop the Anniversary Sale?
A: The Anniversary Sale EARLY ACCESS begins July 13-20, and the sale opens up to the public on July 21-August 6. If you have a Nordstrom card you can shop Early Access. If you don’t have a Nordstrom card, you have to wait until July 21 to shop the sale.
Q: Do I need to have a Nordstrom credit card to shop the sale?
A: You need a Nordstrom credit OR debit card to shop EARLY ACCESS from July 13-20. I highly recommend opening a card if you don’t have one because things sell out so quickly and it’s important to shop as soon as possible. You can open a Nordstrom card in store or here. You do not need a Nordstrom card to shop the sale when it opens to the public on July 21.
Q: What kind of merchandise is available during the sale?
A: You can expect to find a little bit of everything on sale!! They have women’s, men’s, kids, cosmetics, handbags, accessories, at home…you name it, it’s on sale! This is the best time to stock up on basics! Shirts, jeans, sweaters, boots, activewear, handbags…you can buy everything for yourself and for your family at the same time!
Q: Why is this sale so different than other sales?
A: This sale is different than others because the merchandise is BRAND NEW. The items on sale are not old merchandise that are being marked down because they need to be taken off the floor. The items on sale are fall items that have never been seen before, and they are only on sale from July 13-August 6, and on August 7th the prices go back up to FULL PRICE.
Q: What are the hot sale items this year?
A: Every year there are certain staples that are hot items that sell out super fast. This year some hot items will be designer skinny jeans, fall booties, blanket scarves, leather jackets, and open cardigans.
Q: Do you have a shopping strategy?
A: You MUST have a shopping strategy when it comes to the #NSale! Take a good look through the catalog and mark items that you 100% want to buy, and also mark items that you want to take a look at in person. Things sell out FAST, so make sure you make a quick move on the items you know you for sure want so they don’t disappear before you get your hands on them.
Q: Is it better to shop in store or online?
A: This totally depends on your personal preference! I personally love shopping the sale in store on the first day of Early Access. I love seeing the clothes in person and trying them on, and I will also be letting you guys know how things fit and showing you pictures of things via Instagram on the first day of the sale! I love coming home with bags of new clothes, shoes, accessories, etc. on the first day, and then I do more shopping online. Not everything is available in store so I buy the first round of items in store, and I order the rest online!
