While Amazon Prime Day is the shopping holiday for deals on tech and home appliances, Nordstrom’s annual Anniversary Sale is your best bet for designer discounts, beauty exclusives and more. The highly anticipated retail therapy event kicks off July 28 and ends August 8, but some Nordstrom cardmembers have already gained early shopping access. Ahead, we’ve gathered everything you need to know before you shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
When Does Early Access Start for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Your status in the retailer’s Nordy Club rewards program dictates how early you can preview and shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Icons started shopping July 12, followed by Ambassadors (those who spend $5,000 per year) on July 14, and Influencers (shoppers who spend $500 or more per year) on July 16. If you’re not yet a member or a Nordstrom cardholder, you can enjoy early shopping access and get a $60 Bonus Note if you apply and get approved for a credit card account.
What we love about this year’s event is the ability to save products to a wish list, making it easy to speed through checkout once the sale begins. Another pro tip? Download Nordstrom’s app (available on the App Store or Google Play) to get alerts on when items go on sale and more.
What Are the Best Nordstrom Anniversary Deals?
This year’s shopping event promises savings on best-selling fashion brands including AllSaints, Barefoot Dreams, BP., Good American, Nike, Steve Madden, Veronica Beard and others. New to the sale are cult-fave labels and designer names such as Cinq à Sept, Club Monaco, Dagne Dover, Jenni Kayne, La Ligne, Moncler, Re/Done, Reiss, Save the Duck and many more.
Beauty buffs can enjoy over 300 exclusives across cosmetics; fragrance; and hair, skin and body care departments on brands such as Bobbi Brown, Charlotte Tilbury, Dior, Estee Lauder, Kiehl’s Since 1851, Le Labo, Malin + Goetz, Olaplex and Tom Ford, among others. Over in the home department, expect over 40 new brands (which rarely go on sale) in the mix, including Apotheke, Dyson (a first for the event), Food52, Greenpan and Slowtide, to name just a few.
What Are Other Nordstrom Anniversary Deals Perks and Events?
Retail therapy isn’t the only thing on the schedule. Nordstrom has a slew of surprises and experiences for shoppers, including daily prizes, livestream shopping events and specials on three-course meals.
From July 12 to 27, the first 50 Nordstrom cardmembers to use in-store or curbside pickup will receive a scratch ticket that may reveal treats such as free gift cards, round-trip Alaska Airlines tickets or a Tonal smart home gym, among other prizes.
If you’re shopping from home, tune into Nordstrom’s NLive Lunchtime Livestream sessions from July 13 to August 5 for live virtual events on the latest trends, must-shop items and other topics.
Those seeking fuel while they’re shopping in stores can enjoy three-course meals starting at $35 during Nordstrom’s restaurant week from July 25 to 31, and all stores will be serving a special drink menu and light bites July 28 to August 8 from 2:30 to 5 p.m.
There’s plenty to keep beauty aficionados busy, too. The retailer’s Glam-Up Days (July 28 to August 8) promise daily deals, personalized samples, gifts with purchase and more, while the all-day Beauty Bash on July 31 includes a full lineup of demos, makeup application sessions, special offers and other happenings. While you’re there, bring your beauty empties for recycling in Nordstrom’s Beautycycle program. See the full Nordstrom Anniversary Sale event event calendar here.
