September 20-24 you can earn triple points on any Nordstrom purchase if you’re a cardholder or rewards member. It’s super easy to sign up on their website and they’ll send you “Nordstrom Notes” once you reach a certain number of points. For those not familiar, Nordstrom Notes work the same as gift cards.
I’d had several items sitting in my cart awaiting this event and I got lucky because none of them sold out before I had a chance to purchase! That never happens for me.
