Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Buy This, Not That!


Sales, Shopping / Thursday, July 19th, 2018

It’s almost July 20th, which means that at midnight tonight the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will be available to the general public! Currently, early access to the sale is only available to Nordstrom card holders, which also means that several of the most popular items are likely to be sold out already. For general information about the Anniversary Sale, check out my other blog post here on what you need to know.

However, as I browsed through hundreds of Nordstrom’s sale pages online, I realized that some of discounted items aren’t actually great deals. I was able to find similar items and much lower prices. Check out my list below of dupes or comparisons at better prices:

 

BUY THIS: AG Super Skinny Ankle Jeans at Nordstrom Rack (all sizes still available)
Sale Price: $109.97 Original Price: $235.00

AG Twiggy Skinny Ankle Jeans Nordstrom Same

BUY THIS: AG Twiggy Skinny Ankle Jeans at Nordstrom
Sale Price: $38.90 – Original Price: $59.00

*Pro Tip: If you are petite (I’m slightly shorter than 5′), I would HIGHLY recommended to also check out the girls section. I often fair well with girls size 14 or 16 (normally size 25 wait or size 0 – 00 women’s), and I still have to fold the hems since even girls’ jeans are too long for me. I actually picked up a few pairs of designer jeans this way during the anniversary sale last year. More often, the girls jeans are better stocked by the time the sale opens to the public and are much MUCH cheaper. Then denim material is thinner but sometimes also more stretchy. I also appreciate the the lighter material is easier to pack on trips!
