Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What’s the Hype?

July 2, 2018

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog dropped last week, and style bloggers everywhere went cray, flipping through the pages, scouring for the latest trends and deals.  Why?  Because this is the biggest sale that Nordstrom has on PRE-season items.  Usually, sales happen at the end of the season on items that need to be cleared off the shelves in order to make room for new stuff coming in.  But, this sale is unique and highly anticipated because you can score some really great fall/winter goodies at up to 40% off!  So, here’s the scoop:

Nordstrom grants early access to it’s cardmembers.  If you want to get in on the action before things sell out, you will need a Nordstrom credit card to do so.  Sometimes they restock certain things before opening the sale to the public, but a lot of times things sell out during the early access sale and those who wait just miss out.  If you want to guarantee yourself the best selection, you can sign up for a card HERE.  Early access starts July 12.

The sale opens to the public on July 20.  I know from experience that waiting can be really frustrating.  I did it a few years in a row because I didn’t want another credit card, but I finally bit the bullet because you really do get a much better selection during early access.

Why do people love Nordstrom?  One of the main reasons is that they offer free shipping and free returns.  So, you can order a bunch of stuff, try it on in the comfort of your own home, then ship back what doesn’t work at zero cost to you!  Another reason is that they have amazing customer service.  Any time I have called, the customer service reps are extremely helpful and will do everything they can to make you happy.

What’s included in the sale?  To be honest, I am never impressed with their sale catalog.  Most of the time, I flip through it and think there isn’t much that is calling my name.  But, fear not, when the actual sale starts, they will have SO much more to offer and I guarantee you will have no problem finding plenty of items to add to your cart!

Some of the popular items you may want to keep an eye out for include:

Aside from gaining early access to the sale, the other piece of advice I can offer is ordering multiple sizes.  I am often between sizes, not knowing for sure which one will fit.  I usually order two of everything, and that way I don’t have to worry about the item selling out if I need to exchange it for a different size later.  Now, because I am not the only one who does this, don’t get discouraged if you see something sold out.  Once people start sending in their returns, items will show that they are back in stock.  So, you may have to become a shopping cart stalker, but I have snagged things by being diligent about checking the restock status and getting something when someone else returns it.
I’ll share what I think are great deals and what I am personally going to purchase.  You can follow me on Instagram and Facebook to get the latest info!
