What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? 

The department store’s biggest sale of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the one you can rely on for the steepest discounts. Basically celebrating the brand’s birthday, it’s the sale where all your favorite brands can be shopped—usually in lieu of a Fourth of July sale, which the store doesn’t really do.

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021?

For the general public, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale runs from July 28 to August 9.

How Can I Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early?

If you’re a Nordstrom Rewards Member—also called The Nordy Club—you can shop the sale before everyone else. The more rewards points you have, the earlier you can shop. Below is the guide to how soon you can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, depending on your status. (Psst—you can check your Nordy Club Status here.)

• Nordy Club Icons: July 12

• Nordy Club Ambassadors: July 14

• Nordy Club Influencers: July 16

• General Public: July 28

Do I Have to be a Nordstrom Rewards Member to Shop?

No! You can absolutely shop the sale on July 28 if you’re not a Nordstrom Rewards Member, but be aware that many items could be sold out by then. Also, if you’ve been thinking of becoming a member but just haven’t had the chance to yet, maybe this incentive might change your mind: Nordstrom currently offers a deal where if you sign up for The Nordy Club and make a purchase with your Nordstrom credit card that very same day, you'll receive a $60 Bonus Note that you can use for a future purchase. That, plus early sale access, sounds like a win to us.

What is Usually on Sale During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

What isn’t on sale? “Consumers should be on the lookout for deals on products typically associated with international travel, like portable chargers, travel pillows, noise-cancelling headphones, shaving kits, and international power adapters,” Dallin Hatch, Head of Corporate Communications at Pattern, says. 

Luggage, loungewear, travel essentials like headphones and eye masks, organizers, and even skincare will all be on sale. You’ll find incredible deals on a bunch of splurge-worthy brands, including Tumi, La Mer, and Alo, as well as staples like Nike, Bombas, and UGG.
