Only one more day until the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts!  As you know, I do a lot of sale posts throughout the year and if there’s one that you don’t want to miss, it’s going to be THIS ONE.  It’s the BIGGEST sale of the year.  For real. The biggest.  You’re probably wondering what is the big deal about this sale?  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is your chance to score brand new, just arrived styles for Fall at SUBSTANTIAL, super sale prices.  When I say substantial, I’m talking about INSANE deals.

Here are the important dates you need to know:

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Important Dates

  • Early access starts July 13th – July 20th (for cardholders only, sign up HERE)
  • Sale open to everyone on July 21st – August 5th
  • Prices go back up on August 5th

First things first, you need a Nordstrom credit card!  Why?  Because you will have access to the sale 8 DAYS before the sale is available to the public.  This is so important because the most coveted items and sizes will be long gone and sold out before the sale is available to everyone.  I don’t have very many credit cards but this is by far my favorite one.  I regret not having gotten one years ago.

All the hype about this sale is enough to make your mind spin, palms sweet and your heart race. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog only shows a fraction of what is going to be included in the sale. I already have tons on my wish list.  Overwhelmed yet?  Don’t worry, I will do all the hard work of you.  I’ll scour the deals, select my top picks and make it super easy for you to shop.

If you’re dead set on NOT getting a Nordstrom card or debit card and want to wait until the sale is available to the public, here is a shopping tip to help you shop smarter and easier.
