Shoppers rejoice! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is upon us. This year the anniversary sale will be July 6th-31st and if you don’t know much about the sale, it offers new arrivals from top brands like Madewell, Vince, Topshop, and more!
What you need to do before the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Starts
As always, Nordstrom cardholders get to shop the sale before everyone else during Early access. This means if you have a Nordstrom card of any kind, you can pre-shop the sale before it’s open to the public. But if you don’t have a card, you can apply here to get one before the sale starts!
So the Nordstrom Sale technically starts June 29 but you can’t shop anything! This is just a preview so you can see what’s on sale and make your wishlist.
All card members can start shopping for the sale on July 15, but you can shop even earlier depending on your card status.
- Icon early access is from July 6
- Ambassador early access is from July 7
- Influencer early access is from July 9
If you’re not a Nordstrom cardholder, the sale opens to everyone on July 15 and prices go up starting August 1.
You can shop the sale in all open Nordstrom stores during normal business hours or through online shopping at 9:30 a.m. EST.
The Big Preview…
Nordstrom is giving everyone the ability to preview all sale items starting June 29! This gives you plenty of time to save your favorites to your wish list (which can help you check out faster when it’s time to shop) and this preview will replace the print catalog for the year.
This is also a great way to see if the sale is worth your time. Some years I find a lot of great items but then times like last year where I only get a pair of boots and call it a day. Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing all of my favorite items with you once I’ve looked through the preview.
In case you are wondering, this sale is great for basics like denim, tanks, and leggings as well as fall/winter pieces like boots, scarves, and coats.
Once a year! That’s why everyone makes such a big deal about it. You can’t beat these prices!d
If you want to get your favorite items before they sell out, yes. But if you don’t want to get a card, the sale opens to the public on July 15 and prices go back up on August 1.
I always check boots, handbags and designer items first. These are pieces you normally get the best deal on.
