The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Has Finally Arrived! Here Are 40 Items You’ll Want to Snag ASAP
The hotly anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here, folks, and we couldn’t be more excited. With tons of deals on top clothing brands, home decor and luxe beauty products, there’s a lot to sort through and it can get a little overwhelming pretty quickly. So we did the heavy lifting for you, by finding the best deals and steals in every category to help you get started on your yearly shopping spree. Here’s everything you need to know to make the most of Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale in 2021.
WHEN IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?
This year, it starts at 9:30 a.m. EST on July 28 and runs through August 8. However, some folks can gain early access starting on July 12 (more on that below).
HOW DO I GAIN EARLY ACCESS TO THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?
To get early access, you have to have a Nordstrom credit card and/or sign up as a Nordy Club member (the membership is free to join and card holders are automatically enrolled). Depending on how much you’ve spent at the retailer over the past year you’ll earn Insider, Influencer, Ambassador or Icon status and each tier gains early access to the sale on its own special date. Icons receive access starting July 12 (today!), followed by Ambassadors on July 14, Influencers on July 16 and Insiders and any non-Nordy Club members (i.e., the general public) on July 28.
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE SALE?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale includes deals on clothing and shoes for the whole family as well as bags, jewelry, beauty, home goods and more. Even if you’re not part of the early access groups, you can still save items to your Wish List and add them to cart the minute the prices drop.
Now that we’ve got all that info down, let’s shop. Here are all the best items we’re adding to our Wish List right this second.
