Hi Friends!

Happy Friday! I hope you've all had a great week. Today's wedding deals post is coming atcha with some super fab deals, but first, we gotta talk about the biggest savings events of the summer.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale- Get Early Access

Now through July 19

It's that time of year again… time for Nordstrom's HUGE Anniversary Sale! The sale officially starts on July 20th, but Nordstrom Card-holders get early access– meaning you can score these deals before the general public, giving you a better chance at snagging your favorite finds in your size! Don't have a Nordstrom Card? Apply today and as a NEW Nordstrom Cardmember, you'll get:

  • Immediate access to the sale. Score the best deals before the general public!
  • 2 points per dollar spent in stores and online at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook and Trunk Club.
  • A $40 bonus Note when you make any purchase with your new card the day you’re approved.

Amazon Prime Day

July 16th

The other big news for this week is that Amazon Prime Day is coming up on Monday, July 16th! This once a year event is basically like the Black Friday of the summer, where Amazon offers some of the best bargains available for one (and a half) day only! To make the most of Prime Day shopping, we're sharing some tips from RetailMeNot's Shopping and Trends Editor, Sara Skirboll, to help you shop savvy!

Tips for Successful Amazon Prime Day Shopping
  • The #1 Tip- Make sure you're signed up for Amazon Prime! Only members get access to these special deals. If you just wanna check it out and get access to the Prime Day deals, you can sign up for a 30-Day free trial of Amazon Prime here.
  • Check back often. Amazon Prime Day’s best bargains are available in limited quantities. As a Prime member, you’ll get advance notice, but if it’s one of those 4K big-screen TVs you’re after or a Nintendo Switch, be ready to pounce before they’re all gone.
  • Shop with your Alexa-powered device if you have one, so you can take advantage of Alexa-exclusive deals. Last year, Amazon offered several Alexa-only Prime Day deals, and this year, Amazon is already flaunting pre–Prime Day prizes, including a Lexus ES, $50,000 in cash and trip for two to Seattle.
  • Download the Amazon app to get a sneak peek at deals a week in advance. Add the items you like to your list (here’s how), and you’ll receive an alert when they go on sale. Bonus: You’ll get $10 when you download and sign in to the Amazon app for the first time.
  • Create your own wish list. Amazon will notify you if any of the items you’re coveting become Prime Day deals.
  • If what you’re looking for isn’t on sale, check out other retailers. Many are offering their own Black Friday in July sales.
  • Keep Lightning Deals on your radar. These super-limited offers are the best-of-the-best and never last long. Last year, to qualify as a lightning deal, a product had to be at least 20% off its list price. Once you put a lightning deal in your cart, you only have about 15 minutes to transact.
  • Consider getting the Amazon Prime credit card. You’ll immediately get a $70 gift card and 5% back on all Amazon purchases. It's one of the best credit cards to have– and the perks just keep getting better year after year. You'll also earn 5% cash back when you shop at Whole Foods and 2% back on Restaurants, gas stations, and drugstores!
