Happy almost weekend! I debated writing this post but asked you on Instagram and you all voted ‘YES’ so here we are! I know there is quite the conversation in the blogging community about the Nordstrom sale. It seems that there are influencers on one of two sides. Either you are leaving the store with 10 bags and doing story try ons (I wish!) or you are on your stories saying it is overhyped. I think I stand in the middle. I love Nordstrom because I do think they have a great variety, but yes this sale can be Christmas for bloggers.
Want to know the tea on why? We make commission off most of these links. And on anniversary sales Nordstrom will pay out up to 10% on each sale! Most of the links bloggers (at least myself) share are affiliate links so it is NOT just for Nordstrom or this sale, but when designer items that never go on sale do and you get someone who bought a $1,000 purse it can be big bucks!
Another insider secret is that some of the bloggers you see purchasing lots of items in store will return it after their stories - why I say go for it! As long as they aren’t wearing it out I don’t see the harm. My final “secret” is one I actually use and there is nothing that says you can’t! I often shop with my own affiliate links to get money back which is another reason bloggers can spend so much at the sale because they will not only be getting 10% back on their purchases, but assuming their followers purchase as well they can make almost all the money back and essentially have these items for free! Plus when fall comes they can link to the items and continue to ear a commission.
So that’s the “tea” and that being said… I went on the Nordy site and have some of my picks below. Instead of thinking about what would give me the most commission or what y’all would want (sorry) I just went ahead and picked out ONLY items I would buy myself! So have fun, be safe out there during the sale and remember that bloggers worked their butts off for these posts and to be nice!!
