Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 – FAQ + Tips

The biggest sale of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017, is happening next week! So I’m sharing a little information about it and tips for conjuring the sale!

Let’s go through some frequently asked questions about the sale! 

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017? 

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is truly the best sale of the year. It is Nordstrom’s  biggest sale of the year! This sale allows you to shop new arrivals for the upcoming fall season at a serious discount. While this Early Access for some {more information on that below} the sale is open to everyone! No special card or promo code is needed! During the The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale you can find all items included in the sale online with the sale price {obviously, ha} but also their original price aka what they will go up to following the sale. I LOVE this because you know, I can say “I got it for only $59.90 and it’s originally $89.95.” 

What are the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dates? 

If you are a Nordstrom cardholder {more information below}, you’ll receive early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale on July 13 until July 20, 2017. The sale will then open to all Nordstrom customers  July 21 until August 6, 2017.

What deals does Nordstrom have for the sale?

So many amazing ones! You can take a look at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog here to see items included in the sale. The catalog {and sale} includes women, men, and children. So you’re able to score some deals for everyone! The catalog will allow you to create a little wish list. Great preparation for when the sale goes live! 

Typically with the sale your savings are around 25-30%. On occasion they might be even more. The best part is these items are brand new!! They aren’t last seasons or last years items. They’re the top pieces, trends, and styles for the upcoming season! The sale is also across all departments – clothing, shoes, handbags, accessories, make up, skincare, and home. Again, a little something for everyone.

What is Early Access? How do I get it? 

Early Access allows you to get first dibs on the sale. Meaning, you are able to shop all sale items prior to the general public. You can gain Early Access by applying for a Nordstrom debit or credit card! If you are approved before July 9th, you will receive a $20 Nordstrom Note toward your first purchase during the sale! Plus, as a cardholder, you will receive Early Access to shop the best arrivals at their Anniversary Sale discounted prices!

If the card isn’t for you, you can join Nordstrom Rewards without applying for the credit card and you will still receive a $10 Nordstrom Note to spend at the Anniversary Sale!

What are your tips for shopping the sale? 

Prep! That might sound silly but you have no idea how fast everything sells out. A lot of the best items will sell out the very first day. Therefore you should take a look at the catalog, create a wish list, write down item numbers, and shop ASAP. So my top tip is to make sure you have Early Access and you shop the sale on July 13th. Also, come back here in July 13th, I’ll be sharing ALL of the best items from the sale. 

Shop often! While items do sell out quickly, they are often times restocked a couple days later or when the sale goes live to the public. So make sure you check back often. 

Stock up on investment pieces and staples. Now is the time to get items you wear regularly. Since you know you’ll wear them and you know you’ll be buying them later in the season, why not pick them up now at a discount. Also, the sale is the perfect time to finally invest in that classic item you’ve had on your wish list for years. This will probably be the only time it will be at a serious discount and you’ll have it as soon as the season starts. A total win in my book! Think trench coats, riding boots, the perfect satchel, or a cashmere sweater/wrap. 

What will you be shopping for? 

I typically use the sale to stock up on fall footwear. After taking a look at the catalog, I have two pairs of loafers on my wish list. For the past three years I’ve kicked myself for not picking up a Burberry coat. It’s one of those investment pieces I mentioned early. So this year, if the one I want is included in the sale, I vow to pick it up! Each year I usually grab a handbag too. I have to be honest, in the catalog I didn’t see any I LOVE but hopefully additional ones will be include and blow me away! 

Stay tune for next week, July 13th when the sale goes live, I will be sharing my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks for those with Early Access! 

Also, take a look back at my posts from last year’s sale to grab some inspiration {here and here}.
