ICYMI, Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is quickly approaching. Get out your calendars and save the date: It’s open to everyone August 19-30 and cardmembers can get in as early as August 4, so get those credit cards ready. In case you haven’t had the pleasure of shopping this much-anticipated yearly sale, it’s the biggest sale Nordstrom offers, so you certainly don’t want to sleep on this event. Unlike traditional sales where older products get discounted to make way for new versions, this one-of-a-kind event is all about brand new products from your favorite brands. And when the sale’s over, they’ll go back to the regular price.
The sale typically happens earlier in the year, but it was pushed out due to recent events to ensure a safer shopping experience. Despite the new timeline, you’ll still be getting the same deals, so get ready to score on everything from kitchen essentials and cult-favorite baby items to new wardrobe staples. And while we were sad to see this unique sale get pushed back, Nordstrom obviously added in some fun new additions to make it even better than before.

What’s new this year aside from the date?
This year, in lieu of the print catalog, everyone can preview the sale right now so you can start curating that wish list ahead of time so you’re better prepared when the coveted sale comes around. After all, sale shopping is basically a sport and can feel overwhelming, especially when you’re talking about a once-a-year deal.
Can you score deals earlier?
If you just can’t wait to snag a deal, there are some ways to access it earlier than the 19th. Nordstrom cardmembers can get first dibs on August 13th (you can sign up here if you don’t have one yet), and depending on your Nordy Club status, you may be able to get in as early as August 4. The higher your status, the earlier you can shop. You’ll be able to shop in stores that are open, or online shopping begins at 9:30AM ET/6:30AM PT. We’ll keep you updated on our fave picks when the sale rolls around, but since you can preview the sale for the first time ever right now, we’ve listed our top picks below so you’re ready to roll when you can start shopping.
