The 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here and “Early Access” starts tomorrow! During Early Access, Nordstrom cardholders get to shop the Anniversary Sale a full week before it opens to the public. In order to shop Early Access this year, you can apply for a Nordstrom Credit Card here to make sure you score the best deals before Public Access.
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is the retailer’s biggest fashion event of the year where you can get your hands on all of fall’s new arrivals discounted before the season. The NSALE happens in two phases: Early Access and Public Sale and lasts for a couple of weeks from Friday, July 12 through Sunday, August 4. You can see the Full Anniversary Sale Catalog here.
Early Access for Nordstrom cardholders begins tomorrow at 12:30 EST! All cardmembers, no matter the status or the type of card (e.g. Nordstrom retail card, Visa Signature and Platinum cards or debit) get exclusive access to shop brand new arrivals at a major discount before everyone else.
For non-cardholders, the Anniversary Sale opens to the public on Friday, July 19 and wraps on Sunday, August 4. If you aren’t a card holder, Nordstrom historically restocks items that have sold out during the Early Access window, but you have to keep an eye out.
Shop Early Access
I would highly recommend applying for a Nordstrom card before the sale opens to the public because the most popular items sell out fast during early access. If you love fall fashion, this is the time to stock up on boots, cardigans, dresses, long sleeve tops, tees and t-shirts, boots, jeans and outerwear pieces at a major discount. I’ve procrastinated in the past and have always missed out on some of the best items.
Applying for a Nordstrom card is really simple. You can apply directly for one here. There are no annual fees, you can earn bonus points 3X faster, and for a limited time, make any purchase at Nordstrom, Nordstrom.com or Nordstrom Rack on your new card the day you’re approved and get a $40 bonus Note for future use.
**Note** Nordstrom has the best customer service out of any retailer and they offer free shipping and free returns. If you don’t like something you purchased, Nordstrom makes it really easy to return your items, without or without a receipt.
Friday, July 12 -Thursday, July 18: “Early Access” Sale (card members only) online and in-store.
Friday, July 19: The NSALE officially opens to the entire public.
Sunday, August 4: LAST DAY of the NSALE before all items go back to full price.
