Online Shopping Tips & Promo Codes

October 2, 2014

I love that more and more international brands are opening in Manila. I even read in a glossy magazine that Manila is a shoppers haven because we have the best shops and brands from all over the world. Although it is nice to check racks and racks of clothes, and try them on in fitting room (and probably take a mirror selfie), I still find joy in shopping online.

One of my favorite online sites is If you have friends or relatives in the United States, you are probably familiar with the brand. Nordstrom is a leading fashion retailer of clothes, shoes and accessories for men, women and children. The brand existed since 1901 and with more than 100 years in the business, 117 full-line stores (in US and Canada), 155 Nordstrom Rack, and 1 clearance store – there is no reason not to know Nordstrom.

You might have also seen Nordstrom promo codes all over the cyberspace. The Nordstrom discount code is valid and redeemable by customers in 96 countries worldwide. Although I haven’t really purchased anything online, and redeemed a Nordstrom Promo Code 2014, I am already eyeing some of nice dresses and shoes online.

Here are some of the items I am loving from Nordstrom Online Store.

I am always attracted to Leather Jackets. Probably because I associate it with bad boys and rock stars 🙂 Good leather jacket is always a closet must-have!

I don’t fancy designer watches (but if I would be given one as a gift, why not?). I love this simple yet classy this watch looks.

Looks like my list is more on a black and white essentials for a woman-on-the-go 🙂 Here’s a tip I want to share when shopping online – personally, I always look for promo codes before proceeding to check out. I sometimes do the math and calculate how much item I can add to get a discount or which Nordstrom coupon code can save me more money (I even play with different Nordstrom discount coupon). It is always nice to save even by 10% or get free shipping. One time, I even got a free luggage set for spending $500 in an online store. Some online shops even give additional gift card with shopping credits as much as $150.

When processing payments, make sure that you are processing it via secured site or you use Paypal. The shipping might take days or months, but like what I always say, patience is a virtue. Once you get your package, it is always like receiving a gift 🙂 Just pray that you don’t need to pay much on custom fees 🙂

Happy online shopping!
