2017 Nordstrom Anniversary SaleNow, every pro-shopper knows you can’t go into a sale without a good game plan. So I have a few little tips, tricks and hints to maximizing your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale experience. They have a few new goodies up their sleeves this year. And we wouldn’t be bffs if I didn’t make sure you had alllllllll the details!!!

Marking your calendar is the first step, so here are a few Nordstrom Anniversary Sale dates to keep in mind over the next few weeks:

July 13th – Early access begins!
July 20th – LAST day of early access!
July 21st – Public access begins – HAPPY SHOPPING!
August 8th – Sale ends!

If you’ve shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in the past, you know that whole saying in life about the early bird getting the worm is totally true!

One of my favorite tips to share is that if you see one of those red-hot sell out items that makes your heart flutter like Jonathan Taylor Thomas did in the 1990s, stick it in your cart and buy it online immediately. Even if you plan to shop the sale in person, you can still just have it waiting for you at in-store pickup with zero risk that your size or favorite color is out of stock by the time you get there.

2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale My biggest recommendation is to go for the gold with early access. If you don’t have a Nordstrom credit card and are interested in getting one, this allows you early access! Meaning you can start shopping more than a week before the general public. And guess what? If you apply and are approved by July 9th, Nordstrom will give you a $20 Nordstrom Note toward your first purchase at the sale! I mean, basically you’re making money while shopping!

If the Nordstrom credit card isn’t really your thing, let’s talk about the Nordstrom Rewards program. Its’s completely free to join and super easy to sign up. You don’t get early access, but you DO get a $10 Nordstrom Note to spend at the sale! YAY!

2017 Nordstrom Anniversary SaleGet excited because we’re going to have HUGE giveaways, live coverage on Level 4 day on Facebook live so you can see exactly what’s there (even the stuff that wasn’t featured in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog) and tons of helpful shopping guides and personal recommendations on our favorite Nordstrom Anniversary picks from handbags to shoes to dresses to everything in between!

If you’re dying and cannot wait for two weeks, get a little taste of what we’ve covered in the past here and here and here. To get a few more tips on sales shopping in the past, skip on back to last year’s prep post!

Can’t WAIT to crush it with you guys this year at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!!

So bummed, went to enroll in the Nordstrom debit card like your post mentioned and they said they no longer offer it, only Nordstrom credit cards which you have to apply for.


Oh NO I’m so sorry!! They must have just changed that this year. I will go back and update the post. Really so sorry about this 🙁
