Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Shopping Guide 2021


The most highly anticipated sale of the year is upon us. I have been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale each summer for years now. I have gotten some great deals and quality items each time! There are so many items that go on sale exclusively during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that it can be overwhelming at times. I am here to break down when you can shop and what items will go quickly.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What You Need to Know

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Key Shopping Dates + Tiers

Icon Early Access July: 12-27

Ambassador Early Access: July 14-27

Influencer Early Access: July 16-27

Sale Open to Everyone: July 28-August 8

The sale preview will be open for everyone on July 6th for you to preview what will be included in the sale this year. You can begin to save favorites in your wish list for easy shopping once it begins.

Nordstrom Cardholders get access before the general public. The date is dependent on the tier the cardholder is in. Your annual purchase amount determines the tiers. There is still time to sign up for a Nordstrom Card if you would like early access to the sale! If not, you can begin shopping on July 28th when it opens to everyone. Fair warning, the most coveted items often sell out before this time, and they do sometimes restock during the sale, but it is not a guarantee.
