File this post under the “Shopping Wisdom” tab. As a Nordstrom cardholder (and there are several options available: retail, debit, and visa), the most significant perk is that you earn Nordstrom “notes” or money towards future purchases. Ordinarily you accumulate one point for every dollar that you spend; receiving a $20 note for every 2,000 points. However, there are several shopping events throughout the year where you can earn bonus points. September 21-25 is one such event, when you get triple points on every purchase you make with your Nordstrom card at Nordstrom, The Rack, and on HauteLook. Basically Nordstrom is paying you to shop in their store!
In anticipation of triple reward days, I have been storing my most lusted after items in my “wish list” – waiting to purchase during this event so that I can get more money back (I plan to apply the notes I earn towards my Christmas list – see, I’m thinking of others!). I’ve shared this trick in the past: I “wish list” items online and revisit to check if they have gone on sale and confirm that it is something that I still “must have.” Then, during these types of events, I simply move the items that are on the top of the list into my shopping cart and I’m done. New clothes, accessories, and make-up refresh on the way to my home and new notes for the bank!
Curious what’s on my wish list? See below.
What’s on your wish list? What are you lusting after this fall? Thanks for reading and happy shopping! ~Jenn
