Let the countdown begin! The annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is only a few days away, and it’s going to be the biggest sale of the year.
I remember when I was younger, my mom and I always looked forward to this sale because we’d get everything that I would need for the school year from outerwear, to sneakers, and even backpacks. Now, I look forward to the sale because it’s a great way to save some huge money for Fall fashion. If you’re like my family, most of our birthdays start from August-December, so it’s a perfect time to get birthday, anniversary, and even Christmas presents at such a good price!
I’m giving you all the details and tips you need to know to make the most out of the #NSale.
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The #NSale event is unlike any other! Nordstrom marks down brand new items (especially for Fall) at such a discounted price – it’s insane! Brands e.g. Tory Burch, Gucci, Rebecca Minkoff, Michael Kors, etc. are all marked down by several hundred dollars.

How is it different from other sales?
Usually, items that are full-priced are marked down by either 25% or 50%, but with the #NSale it’s different because each item goes on sale for only a selected period of time and then prices go right back up in August. These brand-name items are only on sale for a limited time and you won’t be able to find them marked down this much anywhere else. So, it’s better to take advantage of the marked down prices and buy now and wear later.
What dates do I need to know?
Mark your calendars! Here are the important dates that you need to know:
- July 14-21: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts on Thursday, July 14th for Nordstrom cardholders. During this time, shoppers who have a Nordstrom Credit Card or Nordstrom Debit Card can get first dibs on all the sale items – especially with the items that tend to sell out quickly. If you want to shop the early access, you can sign up for either the credit card or debit card here. It’ll take a few days for you to receive your physical card in the mail, but you as soon as your application is approved, all you would need to do is to give your sales associate your driver’s license and they’ll be able to look you up in their system (while waiting for your card in the mail).
- July 22: The sale is open to the public
- August 8: Last day of the #NSale. After that, all the prices go back up!
How can I make the most of the #NSale?
It’s important to come up with a strategy and to have a plan! I can literally be at Nordstrom for hours just browsing around, and by that time, my boyfriend will be begging to go home. So, I would definitely recommend to look through your closet and see what items you need. Focus on the items you need and make a checklist! Maybe you need a new watch for work? Or, do you need new riding boots because you’ve had the same one for the past three years?
Here are the key items that will be insanely marked down during the #NSale:
Purchase the items that tend to sell out quickly and if you’re ordering online and you’re unsure about your size, you can always order two sizes. Keep the one that fits! Nordstrom has a great no-questions asked return policy and free shipping & returns! 🙂
You can start making your “must-haves” checklist today with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog.
