2021 Dates to Know
July 6th – The Preview and Wishlist Launches
No matter your Nordstrom shopper status, this is your chance to start cultivating your wishlist. It’s like Pinterest except for real life, which makes it way more exciting. Preview the deals and start creating your cart, then rest easy knowing that it won’t sell out. Because when you fall in love with the season’s hottest sweater, the sell-out heartbreak is real.
July 12th – Early Access
Okay, Nordstrom lovers, this is your chance to cash in all of those benefits. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today, but only for Nordstrom cardmembers. Your Nordy club level is based on yearly spend amounts, and if you have a card, you’ll automatically start with Influencer status. To shop early, you have to have the card, AND the higher your status, the sooner you can start shopping.
Here’s the date you can start shopping based on your status.
- July 12: Early Access for cardmembers with Icon status
- July 14: Early Access for cardmembers with Ambassador status
- July 16: Early Access for cardmembers with Influencer status
- July 28th – Public Access
This is the day! Public access opens at 3 am ET/12 am PT, both in-stores and online. Shop in your PJs or wait for your nearest Nordstrom to open so you can have the world’s most fun try-on session.
August 8th – Sale Ends
You only get a little over a week to take advantage of these deals, so don’t procrastinate on your yearly shopping spree. With deals this good, you’re way better off shopping now, than dealing with the return of full-price on August 9th.
Got Questions? We have answers!
If I don’t love my sale purchases, can I return them?
Yes, yes, yes! Nordstrom’s customer service is top-notch. The anniversary sale includes free shipping and free returns. Physical stores offer curbside pickups and returns, expedited shipping, same-day delivery (in select areas), and international shipping.
Is Nordstrom Rack a part of the Anniversary Sale?
Nope, but Nordstrom Rack always has amazing deals on new merchandise, so we encourage you to do some of your shopping there too. But, fun fact, you can return Anniversary Sale items at your nearest Nordstrom Rack.
