The Anniversary Sale is Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year! Featuring deals on top brands, best-selling items, and new and exclusive Nordstrom finds, this is one you definitely don’t want to miss.

What Is My Status?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is broken down into tiers to make shopping easier and reward the loyal customers who love Nordstrom all year long. Nordy Club cardholders get first access to shopping, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start prepping now for when it’s your turn to shop! You can check your card status here.

When Can I Shop?

These are all the important dates you need to know for the sale:

*Shop online starting at 12:01am ET the first day you’re eligible to shop

  • July 9: Nordstrom cardholders with Icon Status can start shopping
  • July 10: Nordstrom cardholders with Ambassador Status can start shopping
  • July 11: Nordstrom cardholders with Influencer Status can start shopping
  • July 15: Public Access – sale is open to the public!!
  • August 4: Last day to shop sale before items go back to full price

How Can I Shop?

You can shop the sale in-store or online, but online is your better option to have access to the best selection. Plus the Nordstrom stores can get very busy during the Anniversary Sale, as it’s the most popular event of the year, and being able to buy those coveted items from the couch while wearing your PJs sounds like a win-win.

The sale preview is now live, so start browsing and making your wish list. That way, when you’re able to shop the sale, you can add those items right to cart and purchase! Here is a wish list Kristy compiled of some of the top items from this year’s sale.

In addition to free shipping and free returns, Nordstrom also offers curbside pickup and returns, expedited shipping, same-day delivery (for selected areas) and even international shipping.

What Else Should I Know?

  • Plan and budget! Decide how much you can spend, then view the sale preview and find exactly what you need. There are tons of amazing items included in this yearly sale and it can seem overwhelming, but having a game plan will help you tackle this with ease.
  • Use your wish list – a lot of these items sell out and sell out quickly. If you’re undecided on an item, just add to cart and purchase…Nordstrom offers free shipping and free returns online and in-store.
  • As a Nordy Club member, you get points for every dollar you spend. Maximize this by using your double points day on the day you plan to do the most shopping!
  • It’s never too early to think about the holiday season! This is a great time to take advantage of the discounted prices on favorite gifts like beauty bundles, throw blankets and candles, and cozy accessories!
