Some say that the biggest sale of the year is here, they claim that it is the biggest fashion event of the year, and some even equate it to Christmas in July. Yes, I am talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which happens every year in July.
Well, in case you didn’t already know, now you do 😉
WHAT IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE AND WHY SHOP THE #NSALE ?
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is not your typical sale, meaning, items that go on sale now are NOT the usual summer clearance stuff, but they are brand new items for FALL and WINTER (including items that can be used year-round) that will actually be launched during the #NSALE
So it is a great time to start shopping for fall and winter and even get started with your holiday gift shopping. I know, it is still summer and this may seem like it’s too early but if you are going to be splurging on some items then why not save some $$$ while at it? I mean, saving up to 30%-50% is a big freaking deal!
Plus, it is always a good idea to keep your wardrobe updated with quality basics and staples that you can use over and over all year round.
NOTE: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is not a site-wide sale but there is a huge selection of merchandise that goes on sale (over 10K items). So you can be absolutely sure that there will be something for everyone – women, men, babies, kids, home, beauty, hair, travel, accessories and much more…
WHEN DOES THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE HAPPEN?
NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE IMPORTANT DATES: 7/9 – 8/4
TIPS & PLAN OF ACTION TO SHOP THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE:
NORDSTROM CREDIT CARD & NORDY CLUB MEMBER DETAILS & BENEFITS
Nordstrom credit card gives you Early Access (i.e. on 7/12) to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Meaning, the #NSALE items that are on display in-stores are cordoned off and ONLY Nordstrom cardholders will be given access to shop this area from 7/12 – 7/18 (until 7/19 when the sale opens to all). Same goes for online shopping as well, except, in this case, you won’t have an option to buy sale items until 7/19 if you do not own a Nordstrom Credit Card.
Sign up for a Nordy Credit Card ONLY if you are OK with having another credit card (I know, most of us own one too many cards) and if you will use it. And if you think that your favorite sale items will sell out fast and might not be restocked so you’d rather get early access to shop the #NSALE.
Nordstrom has 2 different credit card options to choose from:
I highly recommend that you get a Nordstrom Visa Card that you can use everywhere. That way you can earn more points for every dollar you spend.
Full Disclaimer: I myself only recently got a Nordy card after pondering about it for a while and had almost made up my mind that I DID NOT need it. But changed my mind after I saw a preview of the sale catalog and heard about the bonus $60 Nordstrom Notes that you get if you sign up for the card by July 10th (after which you get $40 Nordstrom Notes for signing up). Plus, since Vinay and I anyway shop quite a bit at Nordstrom Rack it made even more sense to get the card 😉
NORDY CLUB: It is free to join and you can earn points no matter how you pay (i.e with or without a Nordstrom Credit Card). And with a Nordstrom Credit Card, you’ll automatically unlock access to special benefits with The Nordy Club.
EARNING POINTS: Nordy Club members earn 1 point per $ spent at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook, and Trunk Club as opposed to Nordstrom Credit Cardmembers being able to earn 3 points per $ spent at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook, and Trunk Club and 2 points per $ on dining, entertainment and travel (when paying with a Nordstrom Visa card). And for every 2,000 accumulated you get a $20 Nordstrom Note.
