What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Ever heard of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? It’s by far the biggest sale of the season that happens each year in July. You can shop new arrivals for both Summer and Fall on super sale prices. One of the best parts of this sale is the fact that you know exactly what the dates are, so you know when your first and last chance to buy things are! Plus both shipping and returns are always free. I’m always crushing on items at Nordstrom and typically have to limit down my cart. With the sale, I can buy everything I want in my budget, get everything shipped for free, then ship it back if it doesn’t work. I typically make a few different purchases throughout the sale – one during Early Access, one the first day of the public sale, then one on the last day. I typically see items sell out during early access, then new items on the first day of the public sale, then I typically have a last round purchase before the sale ends (especially if I’ve returned something).
When Can I Shop It?
There are two parts to the Nordstrom Sale – Early Access and Public Access. To get Early Access you need to be a Nordstrom Credit or Debit Card holder. There are so many perks to being a card holder beside their sales – you can earn points which turn into ‘Nordstrom Notes’. After so many points, you essentially get free gift cards! Some days or weekends, they even have double and triple point days too! When I first got my card, I wasn’t sure if I’d shop from Nordstrom enough, but eventually you’ll see that you can buy everything here – from clothing, home, jewelry, swim, makeup, shoes, purses, bath, etc.
Early Access is from July 13 – 20
Public Access is July 21 – August 6
