How to Prepare for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

How to Prepare for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

We’re just a few short weeks away from Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017. Preparing for a sale may seem silly, but considering the incredible deals that are up for grabs, it is totally worth it. Imagine having a closet full of brand new fall fashion that you got on SALE. It’s unheard of. It’s also a great sale for parents with kids getting ready to go back to school. Back to school shopping can be expensive, but with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, you can pick-up trendy, high-quality pieces for your kids. Clothes and shoes that you know will last through the school year. Now do you get why everyone is so obsessed with this sale? Here are my tips and tricks for preparing for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017:

Know the dates.

Popular items tend to sell out quick, so knowing WHEN to shop is key. Early Access begins July 13th for all Nordstrom cardholders. The sale opens to the public on July 21st, and you have until midnight PST on August 6th to shop the sale. Once the sale is over all items return to their full retail price.

Sign up for a Nordstrom card.

You might be wondering how to score Early Access. Well, it’s simple. All you have to do is be a Nordstrom card holder. If you get approved for a card by July 9th and make a purchase, you’ll receive a $20 Nordstrom Note that you can spend during the Anniversary Sale. I know opening a credit card is a commitment, but if you’re an avid Nordstrom shopper I highly recommend it. The reward system is fantastic, and you get perks throughout the year, like Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017. You can sign-up for a card here.

Look through the catalog and make a wish-list.

Whether you’re shopping in-store or online, it’s going to be overwhelming. The stores will be crowded, and items will be selling out left and right online. Before the madness begins, take a look at the catalog and make a list of the items you’re most interested in. Even if you’re not interested in any specific items, you can make a list of the type of items you’re shopping for. For example, I am in desperate need for new jeans, so that’s what I plan on investing in. Because the discounts are especially amazing on the more expensive items, I like to also invest in boots and a fall purse during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017. Whatever you’re on the hunt for, write it down. It will be so much easier to navigate the store and website if you do. You can check out the catalog here.

Follow along.

I’ve covered the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale on the blog in the past, but this year I am seriously committed. From the moment Early Access begins, I will be covering the sale on my blog and social media channels (especially Instagram and Facebook). I will also be sending out newsletters regularly! Be sure to bookmark my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 guide, and follow along on social! Stay tuned for a try-on haul that will be going live the first day of Early Access.

Don’t forget, Early Access begins July 13th, and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 officially opens to the public on July 21st.

In anticipation for the sale, I partnered with a bunch of lovely bloggers to bring you a Nordstrom Giveaway. One lucky reader will win a $1,000 Nordstrom Gift Card, just in time for the sale.
