Oh, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale…. I’m sure you’ve already started to hear about it from bloggers! I usually don’t post about the Anniversary sale because I get tired of hearing about it myself. But I’ve changed my mind this year and I’m sharing why below!
Why you should shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
You can actually score some really great deals on NEW items at Nordstrom during the Anniversary sale. These aren’t the end-of-season pieces that are going on sale – these are new arrivals for Fall at up to 40% off! So it’s a great time to stock up on some bigger ticket items like leather boots, leather jackets, designer pieces, and fall closet staples.
I did shop the Anniversary sale last year and was able to get a genuine suede jacket for a great price so it’s definitely worth it. You don’t have to spend a fortune or buy a ton in order to benefit from this sale. Just pick one closet staple you are missing and go for that!
How to Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Sign up to be a Nordstrom Card Holder
You’ll want to shop the sale EARLY because things sell out QUICK! In order to shop the sale early you’ll need to apply to be a Nordstrom card holder so you can shop the “Early Access Sale” which starts on July 12th. Only people who have applied for the card can shop the items on sale and a lot of pieces sell out during this time. So if you have your eye on a specific item it’s worthwhile to get the card. Plus, the card comes with special benefits and you get rewards for every purchase so it’s definitely a good card to have!
For example, you get a $40 Nordstrom Note after you make your first purchase! That’s $40 to spend on anything you want at Nordstrom! Sweet! You also don’t need to physically have the card in order to start shopping right away so you can still sign up right before the sale starts!
If you don’t have a Nordstrom card you have to wait until July 20th to shop the sale!
I recently became a Nordstrom cardholder
I think it’s worth it – and not just for early access to the sale. It comes with other great perks – like the $40 credit when you sign up and make a purchase. You also get points for every dollar that you spend at Nordstrom (online and in store) and those points add up to more Nordstrom Notes (which work like gift cards). Plus, they have bonus days where you can get double and triple points which helps you get those notes quicker. And since Nordstrom now carries some of my favorite brands like Reformation, Sezane, Madewell, and Topshop I can shop these brands and get those rewards! Their return policy is AWESOME and actually a lot better than the actual brand websites.

Nordstrom puts out a digital catalog where you can check out some of the hottest items that will be on sale.

Nordstrom stores are going to be super busy during the sale so save yourself the headache and shop online. Nordstrom has a great return policy so you can order a bunch of colors, styles, and sizes and try them on in the comfort of your home! Then you can return the unwanted items for free by mail or in-store. It’s super easy!
