Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide 2018

After doing this for several years, I finally decided to put together a page dedicated to all things Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018. I will be updating this page as the sale goes on, so you don’t have to scroll through the blog and get lost. Think of this as your go-to resource for the sale. Here you’ll find an FAQ all about the sale, important dates, where to find the catalog, and every post dedicated to the biggest sale of the year. This sale can be quite overwhelming (I happen to think it is, too), so my goal is to help you through it and provide you with all the information you need in one place. Bookmark this page, send it to your friends and family members, and get ready for the best sale of the year!

How can I shop the sale?

There are several ways to shop the sale. You can shop in-store, but keep in mind the sale attracts a lot of attention, so it will be crowded. You can shop online, which happens to be my favorite way to shop. Things sell out very quickly, so make sure you’re online early. Nordstrom offers free shipping and returns, which makes the online process so nice. They also offer $9 2-day shipping, which I happen to use often, and $15 next day shipping. You can also shop online and pick-up in-store. There’s an option for this when you go to checkout.
