How to Secure “Genius” Deals at Nordstrom Rack

I wore a couple of my latest “genius” deals—items I saved more on than I actually spent—from Nordstrom Rack during Saint Louis Fashion Week, and they were showstoppers.  Whenever I received a compliment on one of my deals, I told people about my favorite shopping secret at Nordstrom Rack.  In today’s post, I’ve decided to share the service I use to help me secure the deals.

How to Secure Deals on Your Favorite Brands at Nordstrom Rack:

Sign-up for email alerts:  Nordstrom Rack stores have an email notification program that allows you to sign up for alerts on specific brands/items that you love.  I signed up to be alerted whenever there are new shipments of Kate Spade jewelry and handbags.  This program isn’t the typical spammy type of email program either.  Whenever there’s a new shipment of Kate Spade jewelry or handbags in my local store, I receive an email, usually from a manager, with details about the new arrivals.  See an example email below:

Tip: Shop early!  Nordstrom Rack stores often receive one sample of special items.

How to sign up:  See an associate in your favorite store and tell her/him that you want to sign up for brand alerts.
