Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018: Tips, Early Access Dates and More!


In just a few weeks, the most anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will be here and I want to make sure you are prepared for this infamous sale! If you are unfamiliar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, it is one of the BIGGEST sales that Nordstrom has to get most amazing deals on new Fall apparel including beauty products, home decor and so much more! Some of the items are marked down from 40% all the way to 75% off which also means that things will go quickly and it is important to know all the facts to shop this sale and get some of the best deals around!

Hot items will sell out very quickly and within a few days after the early access begins so if you want to gain early access to the anniversary sale, you will need to become a Nordstrom Card Holder and you can sign up for the credit card HERE. You will also want to sign up for the Nordstrom Rewards to gain points every time you use your card to shop and Nordstrom will reward you with Nordstrom notes which is like gift certificates to be used on future purchases and depending on how much you spend, you can also receive different perks like alternations and invites to private shopping parties. 


Nordstrom will release their Anniversary Sale Catalog a few weeks before the sale so that is a great time to look over the items that will be part of the sale and get an idea of what items you will want to add to your cart! 


You can only imagine how many people will be shopping the during the sale so my BEST advise is to buy it even if you are unsure and return later if it doesn't even up working out. Nordstrom is known for their amazing free shipping and returns or if you have a local Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack, you can bring back your items to be returned in store. I have missed out on a few great items because I couldn't make a decision and I don't want you to miss out on the items you have your eyes on because that is no fun at all! 


I personally think that shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale online is easier then in person. You don't have to fight the crowds and wait in long times to check out plus Nordstrom always offers FREE SHIPPING and returns so why don't shop from the comfort of your own home and in your comfy pajamas plus you will be able to read all the reviews from other bloggers and shoppers if you are unsure about an item. I also recommend downloading the APP if you have a smartphone as it is free and it is easy to add items to your cart and check out as you shop. 


Now is the time to schedule your personal day to earn TRIPLE points for using your Nordstrom card because you know you will most likely purchase several things from the Anniversary sale. To schedule your Personal Triple Points Day, simply login to your account and schedule it or you can call customer service and they will schedule it for you. 

I will be posting a FULL BLOG POST of all my favorite picks and all the items that I will be purchasing during the sale and updating as things come in and out of stock so be sure to check out my blog frequently for updates and via my Instagram account.  You can check out my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks from 2017 HERE. Some of the staples I get every year is a good pair of booties for the fall, new denim, some fall staples such as sweaters and cardigans and a great fall purse. 

I love to hear what you will be shopping for this year! Is there something you are looking for particular or do you have any tips that I missed? Let me know in the comments below!
