how to shop the Nordstrom anniversary sale

Shop this look

It’s time to shop!

Wondering how to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early?  Wondering why it’s such a big deal?  Well it’s because this sale is the only one where you can purchase FALL FASHION for up to 40% off before it’s even fall — NO OTHER STORE DOES THIS!  I call it Christmas in July.

It’s important to note, there are some changes to the sale this year…

The dates are different and WHO can shop early has changed too!  Read below for dates and details…

July 13th Nordstrom Early Access starts on this day and this year to shop the sale you MUST have a Nordstrom credit card to shop.  Cardholders will get a full week to shop before everyone else, so items will and always do sell out early.  Apply here for one and get $20 to use during the sale!!

July 21st — No card no problem… the sale is open to everyone!

August 6th — Bye bye sale…  the good news is you have several weeks to shop and there will be many returns and restocks so if something you want sells out, keep checking back!

One thing to remember is that it’s a little weird to shop for fall clothing in July BUT it’s soooo worth it.  I remember last year there was this leather jacket I WISH I had bought and, of course, I didn’t and had to buy it in October… at full price!  In other words, don’t do what I did.

Here’s a little peek…
