What is the Anniversary Sale….
You guys, I am so EXCITED that Nordstrom is having their Anniversary sale! This is hands down one of the most popular sales and for good reasons! Most sales happen at the end of the season when they are trying to move the merchandise that they have been sitting on all season…. That is NOT what the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is! It is however, HUGE markdowns on new fall and winter items the day they hit the website! The sale also includes TOP BRANDS like MADEWELL, Vince, TopShop and so many more. It is the perfect opportunity to snag fall sweaters, booties, winter gear, and more for the whole family!
When can you shop the Anniversary Sale….
All cardmembers can shop Early Access starting August 13. You can shop even earlier depending on your Nordy Club status. Check your status here. The Anniversary Sale is open to everyone August 19–30. Prices go up August 31. You will be able to shop the sale in open stores during normal business hours. Online shopping begins at 9:30am ET/6:30am PT.
Whats different about the Anniversary Sale this year….
Due to Covid-19 some things will be a bit different this year. Most stores have not re-opened their fitting rooms, so you are not likely to see as many try ons or large hauls the day the sale hits, as bloggers will have to place our online orders just like everyone else. One exciting change this year, though, is the release of a virtual catalog! In years past, a catalog was sent out in the mail. This year, the virtual catalog will allow you to save your favorites so when the sale opens, you are ready to go. The virtual catalog will be available on July 24th for everyone to access!
How to get ready to shop….
Have your Nordstrom card ready.
Nordstrom cardmembers can shop the sale before everyone else.
Already have a card? Add Your Nordstrom Card
Want to shop early? Apply for a Nordstrom Credit Card
(Subject to credit approval)
Don’t Want a card? Thats ok too! Just make sure you have an account on
Nordstrom and have payment methods saved for faster and easier checkout
Know your Nordy Club status.
Again, they are letting cardmembers shop even earlier this year—the higher your status, the sooner you can shop which is a huge perk! Find Out Your Status
Mark your calendar and set your alarm!
Don’t forget to set a reminder so you’re ready to shop as soon as you have access. Sale items sell out fast, and with the ability to add favorites to your wishlist, I would fully suggest setting an alarm so that you can easily checkout and ensure you get the items you have your eye on! I am not one to advocate for buying/returning items. But with how quickly things sell out, and with the great return policy at Nordstrom, if you are unsure of sizing I would snag both and keep what fits. Most items will be sold out by the time you try an item and realize you need to exchange for a new size!
Some extra tips….
Plan Ahead. The anniversary sale is the best time to snag fall and winter favorites. What do you need for the upcoming seasons? Whether it’s fall cardigans, winter boots, or outerwear for the kiddos, have an idea of what you’re looking for. There are SO many items included in the sale. Narrowing down what you want can make it a bit less overwhelming!
Save your wishlist. I am SO excited about the preview available to everyone on July 24th. Start shopping early, add favorites to your wishlist, and take the time to decide what you really want.
Do not go into debt. I know this should go without saying but lets be real… this is just stuff! Its not stuff we necessarily need but we want! You will see so many posts about all the cute stuff and I know its so easy to get caught up in and think you NEED it. It is also easy to fall into the trap of adding to cart and checking out quickly and not really thinking about what you just did. Again, the beauty of this year is you have time to think about what you really want to buy and hopefully that will curb some of the overbuying. Set yourself a limit now!
What to expect from me..
I will update this post once the preview comes out with any additional tips, tricks, and anticipated hot items. I will 100% be sticking to doing my shopping from home (and form the comfort of my couch and pajamas).
