How to become a Nordstrom Cardholder

If you’re NOT already a Nordstrom Cardholder, you can get that set up BEFORE the sale to have early access. Simply get approved for a Nordstrom credit card.When you make a purchase anywhere in the world of Nordstrom the day you’re approved, Nordstrom  will give you a $40 Nordstrom note to apply to your shopping.

Tips for Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Shopping

My advice, get into the Nordstrom website online on July 6 or 7th if you have that level of access. If you are an influencer, shop from 11:59 pm PT July 13  so that when the clock rolls over to midnight on July 9th you are in. In my experience, that is how you get in early to get what you want. The website has buckled during previous sales, so a little advance planning is worth while.

Start looking at the online sale catalog now, and saving items you want to your wish list, so when the sale starts you are ready to add them to your shopping cart and purchase.

If you’re already a Nordstrom cardholder, entitled to a Personal Triple Points Day schedule yours  Triple Points Day to use during the sale when you shop. That way you’ll accrue points and get the deals.  You’ll earn a $20 Note for every $334 you spend on your Personal Triple Points Day,

The sale features top designers and Nordstrom Exclusives.
