Your Guide to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 - #NSale Tips, Tricks & Guidance

It's one of our favorite times of the year! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NAS) #NSale is almost here. Buckle up, grab your glass of wine or cup of coffee and we'll walk you through everything you need to know.

Rest assured, we'll be researching and sharing our favorites with you on style boards! We so appreciate you shopping with us. For years we've had our clients ask if there was a way for us to get credit when shopping online and until last year we did not have a method.

The good news is now if you still want more from the sale than what's on our style boards, and want to support us with your purchase please shop through this link and we'll earn a small commission at no cost to you.

Let's get down to the details, so you can make the most of the NAS!


The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NAS) is arguably the most important sale of the year. This sale has become legendary amongst Nordstrom shoppers, who look forward to outstanding preseason savings on fall and winter merchandise. You will also find a limited amount of discounted summer merchandise.

The NAS is the perfect time to purchase wardrobe essentials (think tees, undergarments, sweaters, jackets, and shoes) that are great building blocks in your closet. In addition to wardrobe essentials, we recommend purchasing an investment piece or two. In prior years, our clients have invested in handbags, leather jackets, fine jewelry, and luxury footwear at significantly discounted prices.


Here's the detail on dates to shop:

Nordy Club cardholders with Icon, Ambassador, or Influencer status will get even more time to shop Early Access. The higher your status, the earlier you shop. 

You can check your status by clicking here and you will also see what date you are able to shop. If you do not have a Nordstrom Card, you can click here.

If you're signed up for the Nordy Club, you will receive Rewards points! If you don't already have (and aren't opposed to having another card) we highly recommend the credit card as well because the credit card is your ticket to Early Access. At the very least, sign up for The Nordy Club  to earn rewards as you shop.

For every 2,000 points you receive a $20 Nordstrom Note to use online or in-store at a later date. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open for the public on July 28 and ends for everyone on August 8, 2021.

 Here is a chart showing the dates for all cardholders to shop:


SHOP EARLY! - Not joking at all on this one. Popular items notoriously sell out quickly, so even if you are thinking about it - GET IT. You can always easily return or exchange at a later date.

SHOP ONLINE - Shopping online is the most efficient way to get exactly what you want - especially now that you can have everything saved ahead of time on your Wish List.

BUY MULTIPLE SIZES - If you're questioning the fit of a certain item, you may want to consider buying multiples so you can compare.

KEEP CHECKING ON SOLD OUT ITEMS – If an item sells out, keep checking back. We have had the best luck checking online first thing in the morning for restocked items.

DOWNLOAD THE NORDSTROM APP – If you have the Nordstrom App, you can get notifications when items on your Wish List and Shopping Bag are back in stock.

DOUBLE YOUR REWARDS – Cardmembers can use a Personal Double Points Day to earn 2X the points on any day you choose.

GET NORDSTROM EMAIL UPDATES – Sign up for emails so you can stay up-to-date on Anniversary Sale news.

FREE SHIPPING– They will ship almost anything on the site to anywhere in the United States—even Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico—for free.

CONTACTLESS CURBSIDE PICKUP – It’s a fast and convenient way to get your Anniversary Sale finds! Click here to find a Nordstrom store near you.

SHOP WITH US - We offer a limited number of 1:1 Appointments for the NAS (both in person or virtually) so you can be assured that you're shopping the #NSale and getting the pieces that are just right for YOU

FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL MEDIA WHERE WE'LL UPDATE YOU ON A REGULAR BASIS - You can join us in our Private Facebook Group for insider access to our live sessions where we'll cover our #NSale recommendations in-depth and on Instagram where we'll post updates in our stories.
