{Tips & Tricks to be Prepared for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale + a Giveaway}

DTKAustin shares her tips and tricks to efficiently shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, NSALE for 2017. Click for more information and photos.

The biggest and most anticipated sale of the year is almost here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NSALE) is back and better than ever. In preparation for this sale I wanted to give everyone a few helpful tips and tricks to strategically shop the NSALE and a heads up that I will be posting quite a bit more than normal, so please don’t get annoyed! I’ve gotta pay those bills!

Check out the catalog before the sale actually starts!

If you’re not familiar with the Anniversary Sale, here’s the scoop. The NSALE is one of the biggest sales of the year and if you have been following fashion bloggers over the past few years you know exactly how big this sale is. This is the one time of the year you will see every single blogger/influencer dressing the exact same for a month. Anyway, this sale is so popular because new Pre-Fall and Fall styles are released at a drastic discount for a short period of time and then they all go to full price once the sale is over.

So what do you need to know? Note the exact dates of this sale. There is a certain date for early access and then a date where everyone is welcome to shop the sale.

If you are Level 4 customer you are able to shop the Anniversary Sale on July 12th! If you are unsure you can check your online Nordstrom Card account and it will say what level you are.

July 13 – Early Access starts

July 20th – Last day for Early Access 

July 21 – Public Access begins

August 6 – Last day of NSALE

This is the most important, so pay attention!! You HAVE to have a Nordstrom card to shop early access. If you do not have a Nordstrom card you won’t be able to shop until July 21! You do run the risk of items being sold out. Yes, they do restock, but not everything gets restocked. If you are dying to shop this sale early I suggest you sign up for a Nordstrom Card but if that’s just not for you then focus on shopping on July 21. One way to guarantee you get the items you want is to find a Nordstrom sales associate or stylist you like working with and give them a list of items that they can pull and hold for you.

Don’t have a Nordstrom card? Sign up HERE.

There are MULTIPLE ways you can shop my posts! Make sure you are signed up for LiketoKnow.it. If you follow me on Instagram, you know this is how you can shop all of my posts that have the LiketoKnow.it link in the text. Instagram and LTK have both made shopping much easier in 2017. If you see my Liketk.it link anywhere you can just like the photo or screenshot the image and you will get a ready to shop email right to your inbox. If that isn’t working, make sure your email settings are on. If all else fails, you can type the link in your browser. FYI, it IS case sensitive!

If you watch my Instagram Stories you can always screenshot the image and open the LiketoKnow.it app and shop direct. OR if you see me say SWIPE UP on any of my stories you can swipe up and it will take you direct to the website to shop. (Examples below)

    It’s the best sale of the year. It took me almost two hours to look through all the sale items and I skipped the kids lookbooks. LOL. Can’t wait to see what you get.

    Can you believe that I’ve never shopped the NSale? I feel like I should be disqualified as a blogger haha! But this year hopefully will be different. I love that you put together a little guide to help shoppers out. OH! And your outfit is adorable. Loving your top!
