Are You Earning Nordstrom Notes?

2014-12-10 20.58.10
I just received my latest Nordstrom Note in the mail.  If you shop at Nordstrom, you can earn Notes too.
Nordstrom Notes are rebates you earn from shopping at Nordstrom. You earn them by using their credit or debit card (I prefer debit). You earn 2 points per net dollar spent at Nordstrom. Every 2,000 points earns you a $20 Nordstrom Note. You might be thinking, “I have to to spend $1000 for a measley ol’ $20 Nordstrom Note?” I thought the same thing too. However, they have special shopping days when you can earn double or triple points.  And remember, you earn points from purchases at Nordstrom Rack and HauteLook too.

With the holiday shopping season in full  swing, this is an excellent time to signup and begin earning Notes!
