Nordstrom offers some pretty spectacular freebies that you’d probably be willing to pay for but luckily, you don’t!
Here are 10 things at Nordstrom that you’d probably pay for, but don’t have to.
1. FREE shipping, FREE returns, FREE drive-thru pick-up
Everything at Nordstrom ships for FREE — no minimum order! If you simply cannot wait to get your goodies, pick your order up at your local store and they will run it out to you in your car. And you can return anything by mail or to your local store.
Nordstrom’s return policy is incredibly generous — you can return shoes that have been gently worn or a top you’ve washed and accidentally shrunk or something that doesn’t just fit right.
2. FREE price adjustments and price matching
Find an item that is sold at Nordstrom, in the same color and size, in stock at a similar retailer within two weeks of your purchase for less than you paid and they will match the price. Find more details HERE.
3. FREE rewards (FREE stuff!)
Get 1 Nordstrom Rewards point for every dollar you spend at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, and HauteLook. Get a $20 Nordstrom Note to spend at Nordstrom for every 2,000 points you earn.
Get 2X points when you pay with your Nordstrom Card plus choose up to four days a year when you get triple points (depending on your Cardmember Level). Find more details HERE.
4. FREE alterations
Nordstrom offers complementary basic alterations for many full-price items purchased at Nordstrom and Trunk Club (online or in stores). It’s not guaranteed so you’ll have to bring your item into the store to talk to an alterations expert. Find more details HERE.
5. FREE bra fittings
Nordstrom not only has an amazing selection of quality bras (and their nursing bras are THE BEST), but their Certified Fit Specialists will help you find the perfect style and fit for free. You’re under no obligation to purchase. You can make an appointment or just walk in and ask for a fitting in the lingerie department. Find more details HERE.
Nordstrom also provides specialized breast prosthesis fittings and will help navigate the insurance reimbursement process. Find more details HERE.
6. FREE shoe stretching
Find a pair of shoes at Nordstrom that are a tad too tight? Nordstrom will stretch them for free. Get them stretched while you shop the mall or leave them in the machine for a couple of days. You can still return a pair that has been stretched.
Nordstrom is incredibly generous with their samples when you purchase products from the beauty counter. Find the current beauty gifts with purchase HERE.
8. FREE personal styling appointments
Nordstrom offers personal shopping! A personal stylist can help with selecting items and finding your best fit and style. You’re under no obligation to purchase. Find more details HERE.
9. FREE beauty styling appointments
Nordstrom has beauty experts that will teach you how to apply your makeup, create a skincare regimen, or get you ready for an upcoming event. You can either go to a specific brand’s counter OR use a Nordstrom beauty expert and she’ll use products from throughout the beauty department (I strongly suggest you select the second option).
You’re under no obligation to purchase any products they use. Find more details HERE.
10. FREE donation box
Nordstrom will pay the shipping when you donate a box of gently used clothing to GiveBackBox.com. Simply fill a Nordstrom shipping box with your donation and print a shipping label HERE.
