2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Everything You Need to Know

May 22, 2020

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

So what is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and why all the hype so early? Well during the sale, NEW fall items are released and deeply discounted. It’s the only sale where brand new things are on sale. Last year I basically got my whole fall and winter wardrobe during the sale at awesome prices. Every photo you see here includes pieces I bought. You can see all my posts about the sale from last year here to get an idea even more. My post with all the details about last years dates is here.

When is the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

So when is the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary sale? The Nordstrom Anniversary 2020 sale will be from August 4th – August 30th. See all the details on the Nordstrom site here. Your exact date depends on whether or not you have a Nordstrom card and if so what status you are as a card holder. See below for more info.

How do I Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

You may be wondering “how do I shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to get all the best things?” I have a few tips below to help you make the most of the sale! In my experience things go fast!

Watch for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview

UPDATE: The sale preview is live here, and I have done a full post on the best items HERE.

I recommend watching out for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview to come out. I’ll link it here when it does. This year they are offing a full preview of all sale items. You can shop early to decide what you want, add items to your wishlist, and easily check out when your window opens.

Shop Early Access

What is the difference between early access and public access for the sale? Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access is for card members only. It starts about 2 weeks before the sale goes to public access and your start date depends on your card status. During public access anyone can shop the sale. Being a card member usually means you get the best items since you get to shop early before anything sells out.

I’m not one to sign up for store credit cards, and I would never push that on you if it’s not right. This is the only card I have for the sole purpose of the sale, and I have always found it worthwhile. If you are interested, you can apply for a Nordstrom credit card here so you will have early access by the time of the sale.

Shop Using My Links

I just wanted to thank you in advance for reading and shopping using my links! I know there are so many bloggers out there to follow and so many posts about the sale. To be completely transparent and honest, this sale helps pay my bills. If you are shopping, I truly appreciate you starting to shop from one of my links.

    Can’t believe it’s almost that time of the year again! I am curious how it’s going to work with Covid this time – maybe more online shopping? Can’t wait either way.
