How to Prep for the #Nsale

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclaimer for more info.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!! No, not Christmas. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!! Early Access for “Icon” status card members started on August 4th, for “Ambassador” status card members on August 7th, “Influencer” status card members on August 10th, and “Insider” status card members (me!!) on August 13th. And public Access for everyone without a Nordstrom credit card starts on August 19th!! So I wanted to use my “insider” status to help out and scour the sale now so when August 19th rolls around, everyone will already know exactly what they want and have it saved and ready for quick purchase before it all sells out! So here’s how to prep for the #NSale! 

The #NSale will end on August 30th and everything will go back to regular price. Some of the items are marked down quite a bit and there are a lot of REALLY good items included in the sale. My Nordstrom “Wish List” is FULL, y’all! 

So, how to prep for the #NSale??

1. Make sure you have a Nordstrom account by going to Nordstrom.com>Sign In (top right)>Create Account. Having a Nordstrom account allows you to create a “Wish List” for easy, quick check out, plus other benefits as well! 

2. Do some research and pre-shopping to fill up your Wish List. A lot of items sell out really quickly so if you prep for the #NSale by shopping now and saving them for later, you’ll beat the rush and be able to buy things before they sell out. Items highlighted in yellow are included in the sale. 

If that seems like too much work, or you don’t even know where to begin, or you just want some shopping inspiration, you can go to my LIKEtoKNOW.it profile and shop all of the best-of-the-best items that I have been looking for since July 24th when the preview began. I went ahead and did all of the heavy lifting for you 😉 And a little for myself… 

If you have the LTK app, you can “favorite” the items in LTK and then save them to your Wish List on Nordstrom’s website. 

I also created LTK posts in categories so if you are looking for something specific, I might just have a post already lined up for you! You can preview these LTK posts below. 

3. Go back to your Wish List often to see if anything you are wanting has sold out. If something does sell out, usually there will be suggestions for similar items. That’s actually how I found a lot of the items on my list! So don’t be discouraged if stuff on your list sells out, just click on the item and look for similar products on sale. 

4. Set an alarm for 10 minutes before the sale starts (8:30am CST) on August 19th. So set an alarm for 8:20am CST so you can get in front of your computer/phone and load everything up. If you have work at this time, just call in sick. TOTALLY KIDDING!! But like I’m sure some people do that… 

5. Once you have everything in your cart that you want, you can choose to pick up at a store if you want it quickly or you can pay $12 for expedited shipping. Or if you are patient, you can do regular shipping and hopefully everything will arrive within 5-10 business days. But also with COVID it might take longer… Who knows? But Nordstrom has great customer service so if you are worried about ordering stuff online, just know they will refund you completely and accept any returns and what not. They’re known for their excellent customer service! 

So let’s get to the actual items in the #Nsale, eh? Below are my best-of-the-best picks from this year’s anniversary sale. You can use these and the links to prep for the #Nsale and save these to your Wish List or favorite them in the LTK app to shop quickly. I’m going to list everything from left to right, top to bottom, like reading a book.
