For those of you who think shopping at Nordstrom is prohibitive to your budget, think again. It’s not somewhere I shop on a daily basis (well, I don’t shop anywhere on a daily basis), but I DEFINITELY frequent their sales, not just for the drop in prices, but for the service and all the free extras they offer as well (I’ve listen some free Nordstrom benefits that happen all year round below).
For instance, during the last Nordstrom Beauty Sale, they had a special Butter London nail polish offer. Typically, one bottle of Butter London nail polish can cost $10-$15; during the sale, they had a set where you got their famous base and top coat, a travel bottle of nail polish remover, a nail file AND the color of your choice for only $24!
And did you just see the great deal I got on my favorite frugal fashion watch in the Nordstrom juniors department?
During the Anniversary Sale, you’ll save on everything from apparel to shoes and even handbags and accessories. Plus, in addition to all the savings, they have great bonus buys, especially in the beauty department.
In addition to a great experience, here are a few other freebies to look for at your local Nordstrom:
*Free Personal Stylists – this shopping service is complimentary and their knowledge is not department specific, which can come in handy when you’re looking to coordinate outfits for the entire family for that upcoming Christmas card picture!
*Complimentary Bra Fitting – this one I have yet to try, but it seems to go along with Nordstrom’s focus on wanting people to leave feeling like a new person. “8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size. It’s been shown that women who wear the right size look ten pounds thinner, have better posture and ultimately feel better about themselves,” says Nordstrom representative John Bailey.
*Free Makeovers – all the cosmetic counters offer make-up experiences, many of which are free (some have a suggested product purchase. Check brands for details). Their overall objective is for you to “come and feel pampered”!
*Free Shipping. Free Returns. All the time at Nordstrom.com
