Nordstrom Offers Free Shipping And Free Shipping Back On Every Single Item!

Nordies you’ve been this girl’s bestest friend but your online shipping…

As friends I can say this.


I’ve shopped Nordstrom for many years and have always been utterly turned off by their shipping methods. The free shipping option they offer is if you purchase an extremely high ticketed item. This is great if you’re purchasing a purse or shoes, etc….as you can easily score the free shipping but when you’re buying smaller makeup pieces it gets a little harder to reach that shipping goal particularly if you, say, want a single blush or something.

Nordstrom, has made, one of the best decisions in their life this month. They are now offering free shipping on ALL purchases (big or small) and if that isn’t generous enough they offering free return shipping as well.

Nordies, my dear, this is how you gain a loyal customer base.


Shop now at

Now if Amazon started doing the same thing (Amazon Prime is my best friend but free is even nicer) I’d be in online shopping nirvana.


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    Yay! something tells me I’m gonna be making a lot more Nordstrom purchases now 😛 I’ve been meaning to go to Orlando and go there soon, I could use a new bag 😀

    Eeek Muse! The Too Faced Holiday collection stuff is up (but not in stock) on! Can you tell I’m geeked, heh! Sorry I didn’t know how else to tip you on to it 🙂

  • Larie

    This is seriously a great thing…the $200 free shipping minimum was insane. And $5 shipping for beauty purchases $50+ could not compete with Sephora. Glad they finally did this, because everything else about Nordstrom is definitely love!

    • the Muse

      I agreed 100% larie…it was absurd. I really love free shipping! yay!

  • Sara

    Say what, monkeh butt?? I’ve thought about purchasing from Nordie’s online before (there isn’t a physical store within hours of here), but shipping is always a bitch.

    This. Is. Awesome.

    Thanks for the update, Muse!!

    Thanks for this! I’ve been a nordies girl since age 10 and I’m 33 now. I remember nordies pre-net. I don’t order much because i l Iive with in 30 minutes of 2 different nordies but I’m more tempted to buy nordies online and probably will. Thanks again for sharing the news!

  • Telle

    WOWEE!!! YAY for you guys! AND free return shipping too….absolutely AMAZING!!! 😀

    Alas, free shipping on US only. And their so called ‘low’ international shipping rates will have me pay pretty much the price of a product itself and a bit extra.

    • Tiina

      Yes, the international rates are ridiculous. Plus, you can’t even order some products, like nail polish, for whatever reason. I really wished all these companies would wake up to the fact that nowadays customers want the same products at the same prices internationally. I hate companies like Chanel who still think that only US customers count and everyone else doesn’t need their best products at the best prices. Nordstrom isn’t much different, with their shipping rates. As if it’s impossible to ship at MUCH lower rates. Have they ever seen rates at eBay? Shipments from countries like Taiwan to Europe for almost nothing, from small private sellers! But a big company is unable to do the same for international customers? Oh, please.

    I would not recommend shopping online at nordstrom. Yeah shipping is free but it takes forever and a day to ship. In many cases they will send you things that have been used/floor models. They take advantage of the fact that many people don’t want to go through the trouble of shipping it back. This is unacceptable to me. I even have distaste for shopping in the store because of the bad experience i’ve had online, and i don’t really want to support the brand.
