The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is coming up soon, beginning in July. Can you believe it? I mean, we are just starting out with summer, and now is the time to start planning to shop the biggest sale and get your closet ready for the Fall season. Shop brand new arrivals for the whole family, and snag stylish items at a fraction of their regular price. This sale is legendary in the style world – it’s one that you do not want to miss, and that is definitely worth taking the time to prepare for. That’s why I’m here to walk you through everything you need to know.

What are the Details for Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
If you’re new to shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, a major thing that you need to know is that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sales gives everyone the ability to shop top brands such as Topshop, Madewell, B.P., Steve Madden, and more for more affordable prices than you would normally find during the year. It’s a fantastic time to stock up on high quality designer pieces that will last for years to come. It’s the best opportunity to invest in your wardrobe!
Oftentimes pieces hit the sale before they’re even released, which never happens any other time of the year. They also give you the opportunity to prepare ahead by offering an online preview of the sale. That way, you can know the items you want to shop for ahead of time.
Unlike other sales, you don’t need a coupon code for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! The pieces will be categorized separately on the website so you’ll be able to see just how much you’re saving. In-store, the items on sale will be set apart from the regularly marked items.
Why You Need a Nordstrom Card
To get early access to the sale, to be able to shop before everyone else, you can sign up for a Nordstrom credit card. I currently have a Nordstrom card and it gives me the ability to shop at least 6 days prior to full access given to everyone else. You could even get earlier access depending on your status (shown in the dates above). You can apply for a card here and still be able to shop the early access sale this season.
As a card user, you’ll get Rewards points when you shop using your card whether you’re shopping in-store or online. For every 2,000 points, you’ll earn a $20 Nordstrom Note, with an additional $40 bonus Note if you make a purchase the day you receive approval for your Nordstrom card. You can even make big shopping days like the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Tripe Points Days, so you can rack up even further. This makes the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale an even better way to save!
Let’s Talk Strategy
One of my favorite things that Nordstrom has started doing is that instead of sending out a catalog, Nordstrom is giving everyone the ability to preview the sale beginning July 3. This will give you the ability to create your wishlist and track the products you want as the sale starts and continues.
As the sale draws near, take the time to sit down and strategize on what you want to shop for. Do you need a new pair of boots, or is your closet in desperate need of some new skirts? If you know what you need going in, you won’t waste time scrolling or browsing, and you’ll be far more likely to walk away with the pieces you need.
The sale can be overwhelming, so try not to let yourself impulse buy out of panic in the moment. Take a deep breath and keep your head level.
I also suggest paying attention online to what people are hyping up so you have an idea of what might go fast. If you’re interested in those same pieces, make sure to snag them first, then go back for other items!
[Tip: Make an appointment to shop the sale so that you have a personal stylist working with you, and it will allow you to get into the store earlier, prior to the actual store opening.]
It’s always a good idea to make the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale a Personal Triple Points Day so you can majorly stock up on points whether you’re shopping online or in-store. It’s one of my favorite sale day hacks!
