Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016: Best Deals!

There are sales you click on when an email comes through, and there are sales you plan for. Anticipate. Map out a strategy. Pre-game?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale falls into the latter category. This year, open access is July 22-August 7. While Nordstrom card holders already have first dibs on the items, even those of us who fall under the plebeian shopping category can find some great options (without scrambling to search for Nordstrom promo codes).

The website offers a useful wish list feature, and I’m filling that baby up in anticipation of some amazing finds once the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to everyone.  Now’s the time to shop for end-of-summer scores, build your fall wardrobe well in advance of pumpkin spice latte season, and grab transition pieces to carry you through weird weather. It’s okay to be a little bit of an overachiever when it comes to shopping, right? With free shipping and free returns, you can shop new designers, styles, and trends without fear of commitment. Save that for your dating life.
