Anniversary Sale has always been a time of celebration. This year Anniversary Sale will start for everyone July 28!

Anniversary Sale and Early Access: how it works.

One thing Nordstrom changed last year is allowing everyone to preview what is included in the Nordstrom Anniversary on July 6th! This gives you an advantage on what to shop!

  • All cardmembers can shop Early Access starting July 12—shop even earlier depending on your Nordy Club status.
  • Anniversary Sale is open to everyone July 28th to shop!
  • You can shop the sale in open stores during normal business hours. Online shopping begins at 9:30am ET/6:30am PT.

How to preview the #nsale

We’re giving everyone the ability to preview all sale items even earlier—starting July 6th. This way, you have plenty of time to save your favorites to your Wish List so you can check out faster when it’s time to shop. This preview experience will replace our print catalog this year.

Cardmembers with Icon, Ambassador or Influencer status will get even more time to shop Early Access. The higher your status, the earlier you shop. This is on top of the six days of Early Access all cardmembers get.
