I’m going to be 100% honest. Despite appearances, plus the fact that I am a style blogger, and I am an owner of a small collection of shoes and purses, I don’t really like shopping. What an oxymoron right? Ok, maybe I should make it clear, I don’t like shopping during “Sales”. An even bigger oxymoron right? Well, you see, the idea of fumbling through piles and racks of clothes with sizes all mixed together and potentially having to tackle a stranger for that last size XS isn’t exactly my thing. This only intensifies during holidays or holiday triggered Sale days. I would much prefer to shop on line at the leisure of my home, in sweat pants, with wine and ice cream next to me while re-run of Sex and The City is on in the background.
Over the years, I have acquired some tips that helps me get through these anxieties. I have shared on my Instastory the other day on how to score top selling designer shoes in your size even before the sale hits the floor (based on personal experience and success). One sale that I actually brave is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (otherwise known as NSale). It is the mother-load of sales for all upcoming Fall season pieces during summer time and also a great one to watch for trending fashion before the season begins. My tip to keep sanity but still score sale pieces at a great price point is to sign up for the Nordstrom Credit/Debit Card because card holders get to shop the sale an entire week early. I mean the most popular piece from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 was This Suede Moto Jacket and it was sold out in every size and color in two days during the Early Access times.
If you are approved for the Nordstrom credit/debit card before July 9th, you will receive a $20 Nordstrom Note toward your first purchase during the sale! Plus, the Early Access rights to to shop the best arrivals at their Anniversary Sale discounted prices. If the card isn’t your thing, 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! Cardholders earn 2 points per dollar spent in stores and online at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook. For every 2,000 points you earn, you’ll get a $20 Note. You can Apply HERE if you haven’t already.
So after all that talk, when is the big Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dates for 2017? Well, the sale date begins July 13, 2017 and that is for Early Access folks to scoop out and get the goods before public and early access ends on July 20. Public Access begins July 21 – August 6 which is the last day of sale. I have already put the dates in my calendar because I know that I’ll be scoring Fall pieces on sale and getting my kids some Back to School goodies early so that I don’t have to face the crowd when the real back to school mob sale begins in August.
So who else has an anxiety shopping during sale times? What tips and tricks do you to go get you through? Leave me a comment, I want to know.
