Y’all. I never thought this day would come… The end of the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is only THREE days away! Could I have sounded anymore like a broken record the past few weeks?? I apologize to anyone who got extremely annoyed with my persistent posting but if y’all understand what this sale means, then you know you need to shop fast! This year’s NSALE was definitely one for the books and so much different than any other Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to date. Not only did things sell out fast, which was to be expected, but NOTHING was restocked. For those of y’all who are still interested in shopping the last few days of this sale I’ve created 11 scrollers in different categories with what is left in full size runs. I do suspect that some things will be selling out as I am writing this post, but fingers crossed some of these goodies are left.
If you feel like you got completely duped by this sale, then keep reading… Like I said above, the 2017 sale seemed so different than all of the past years. Not only did the website crash most of the first day of Early Access but items sold out within hours and NEVER got restocked as they normally would have when Public Access opened to the public. If something did get restocked, customers swarmed the site like vultures and the item sold out within minutes. I would literally send links to friends, they would place an order and they would get emails stating their order was canceled. This happened to one of my friends FOUR times with the BlankNYC jacket.
SO, let me give you a few tips for next year so you can start prepping before it’s too late. Yes, that sounds crazy but trust me, you’ll thank me later.
Know the dates of the sale. Obviously, we don’t know the dates for the 2018 sale but once those come out make note so you can be prepared.
With everything selling out so quickly it is detrimental that you sign up for a Nordstrom card prior to Early Access. Cardholders get early access to everything on the Anniversary Sale and can purchase anything and everything they want while there are still sizes available! If you want to sign up for a card click HERE. This is probably the most important thing you can do to be semi-guaranteed you will get the items you want. The biggest issue most of my friends had was the fact they DIDN’T have a Nordstrom card and all said they would be signing up and being a little more prepared for next year.
Always check out the catalog ahead of time and be aware of the items you are interested in purchasing. Once you have an idea, call your local Nordstrom and find a stylist or sales associate that can pull and hold all of your items for you.
Great advice. Thanks Ashley.
