The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale [NSale] preview is here! If you are familiar with the sale, you can skip to the key dates below. If not, welcome! I prioritize this sale a little differently. I compare, organize and make my picks with a budget in mind. Expect a lot of Nordstrom content in the next couple of weeks, I’ve got you. Let’s have fun and hunt down those deals, find some dupes and get ready for fall!
Why is this sale a thing? It’s one of the few sales a year that happens before the season starts. Think boots and sweaters at the beginning of the season, not at the end.
This sale opens in tiers. This year, everyone was able to preview the sale on June 29th. We pour through page after page looking for the best deals. I love a good hunt 🙂 Then, the sale will open in stages, depending on your status. I finally caved and have a Nordstrom card (with no status, LOL), so I can shop the sale a few days before “public access”. Stuff sells quickly and even though I have a wish list, I know I will probably only get about half of what is listed.
If you are like me and not shopping on the 1st day, there are a few things you can do to prepare to give yourself the best possible chance of getting your picks. First, create an account with Nordstrom. If you have an account with Nordstrom Rack, that will work too. Signing-up is free, you can do that here. (not the credit card, just a sign-in account-this makes you an official Nordy Member).
Next, you want to create a wish list. For example, if you see a deal that you are interested in on one of my blog posts, click the photo in the post and then Add To Wish List on the Nordstrom site. It will create a one-of-a-kind wish list just for you. You can stack up all your top choices and then be ready to shop when it opens for you. The sale opens online at 12am(pst) and 2am(cst) and 3am(eastern). Even though the sale runs through July 31st, don’t wait! The date that the sale opens to everyone will be one of the busiest. Use the chart below to see the date you will be able to shop.
Icons, I have no idea who they are, shop on July 6th.
Ambassadors (people who spend $5000+ per year) shop on the July 7th,
Influencers, people with Nordstrom credit cards (that’s me), shop July 9th and
Everyone can shop on the 15th.
I will be posting my wish list and what made its way into my cart on soon! Also, my suggestions on what to skip and where to get a look for less will be included too! In the meantime, here’s a few things that have caught my eye in the preview…
Until Next Time!
