What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale + Some of My Favorites

I love Nordstrom’s anniversary sale. It’s the best sale of them all! If you’re not familiar with this sale, let me be the first to tell you about it.

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

This year Nordstrom’s anniversary sale will be July 21st – August 6th 2017. Early access is July 13th – 20th.

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

This is not your typical sale. Usually, when an item goes on sale it means it’s about to be out of season or out of style. The Nordstrom anniversary sale is the opposite, they discount new fall merchandise so everything you shop now will still be current come fall. The sale includes thousands of items from clothing to shoes and accessories, beauty, and even items for your home. It’s the biggest, best sale ever! Nordstrom card holders get to shop the sale before it opens to the public. Early access began on the 13th of July and lasts until the 20th. The sale will open to the public beginning July 21th.

Do I have to have a Nordstrom card to shop the anniversary sale?

No, but it sure helps! If you’re not a Nordstrom cardholder you can still shop the anniversary sale when it opens to the public on the 21st. If you want first dibs on all the sale items, you’ll definitely want/need this card. Items sell out quickly so being able to shop the early access is key to scoring your favorite items. If you don’t have a Nordstrom credit card, you can apply for one here (there’s also a debit card option) and, once you’re approved (you’ll know in minutes), shop the early access right away!

Should I get a Nordstrom card?

There are many benefits to the Nordstrom card but I don’t want to turn this into an ad so I’ll just quickly mention my favorite benefit. When you use your Nordstrom card to shop, you get points. Those points turn into rewards. When you reach 2,000 points (it happens quick!) you’ll get $20! You can use your Nordstrom credit card at Nordstrom stores, Nordstrom.com, Nordstrom Rack stores, Nordstromrack.com, HauteLook, and Trunk Club. There are lots of benefits to this card but that’s a whole other post for another day.

Here are some of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks from the sale. Items are selling out quick! So if you see something you like, get it!
