The best sale of the year is fast approaching: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I’m going to break down everything you need to know- why it’s so good, how it works and some of my favorite picks from the preview! There is SO MUCH good stuff, all marked down substantially! This will be your guide for how to prep for the sale. I’ve been shopping (and working) this sale for years and have learned how to maximize your experience!
What makes this specific sale so good is that it includes new pieces whereas most other sales are for older or past-season items. This sale includes hundreds and hundreds of pieces that will become must-have items for fall and beyond, and that go back to full price after the sale is over on August 8th. It’s pretty amazing. There are no discount codes for this sale- prices will be as marked.
WHEN IS THE 2021 NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?
JULY 12 – Early Access shopping for Icon members
JULY 14 – Early Access shopping for Ambassador members
JULY 16 – Early Access shopping for Influencer members (this is where we are)
JUL 28 – Public Access for the Anniversary Sale starts- everyone can shop!
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT NORDSTROM CLUB STATUS I AM?
You can see which status you have by logging into your Nordstrom account and clicking “the nordy club.”
WHAT TIME CAN I START SHOPPING THE SALE?
You can start shopping online at 12am PST/3am ET the day your access begins!
HOW DO I APPLY FOR A NORDSTROM CREDIT CARD?
You need to have a Nordstrom credit card to shop Early Access, but it’s so worth it! You can wait until Public Access if you don’t want to open a new credit card (totally understandable!) however you’ll risk some things selling out (past experience: the good stuff sells out fast!). You can sign up for a Nordstrom credit card here or in store! Even better, there’s a great promo going on right now to encourage you to sign up for a card!
You’ll get a $60 Nordstrom Note (basically a gift card) when you are approved for the Nordstrom credit card! You’ll also get instant entry into “Influencer” status of the Nordy Club!
With Influencer status, you’ll get the following (and more!) perks: early access to the sale, free basic alterations, curbside pickup, your own personal double points day and early access to the Clear The Rack sales from Nordstrom Rack!
With early access to the sale, you will have access to the most popular items of the sale before the general public does! Many of these items sell out and are not restocked, so it’s the only way to grab some of the most in-demand pieces!
TIPS TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE 2021 NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE
– Use your double points day if you have it to maximize your savings/earnings!
– Consider using the buy online pick-up in store service, or even better, curbside pickup to get your items the day you purchase them! Note- not all items will qualify for same day pickup. This will give you a chance to try things on and make any exchanges necessary before things sell out.
– Be around right when the sale starts. Unfortunately, things will sell out- and fast. So being there available to shop when the clock strikes 12 AM PT is key. Keep an eye on my Facebook page for notification if the sale starts early.
I’ll also have a blog post up within minutes of the sale going live with 100+ of my top picks, all categorized and easy to shop from.
WHAT’S ON MY WISHLIST THIS YEAR
Phew! That was a lot! I hope this helped clarify some things and will make your shopping experience just that much better! I’ll be sharing what I grab for myself, and different styling tips as well as the best of the best, once the sale is live! I am your girl for all things N Sale! :) Happy shopping!
