HOW DO YOU SHOP DURING EARLY ACCESS?
Nordstrom cardholders get exclusive early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Shopping early is the best way to make sure you get the items you want before they sell out…the good items always go fast! I signed up for the Nordstrom card a few years ago and highly recommend it if you shop at Nordstrom often. Not only does signing up for the card get you early access to shop, but you also receive extra bonus notes throughout the year and earn more points per dollar spent. You can sign up for a Nordstrom card here.

WHY IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE SO POPULAR?
To me, this sale is bigger and better than Black Friday or Cyber Monday shopping! Most sales markdown items at the end of the season, but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the only sale of the year that marks down new items. You can score new fall staples well before the temps drop to get the most use of your purchases throughout the upcoming season. I typically invest the most in my Fall and Winter wardrobe because these items are more expensive (think coats, jeans, and boots), so I love getting to shop them early at a discounted price. Many of the pieces are fall staples that you can create an entire capsule wardrobe out of. And looking back at my previous purchases, many of the items I buy during this sale become my most worn throughout the season.
ANY TIPS OR TRICKS TO SHOP THE SALE?
I shared 8 MUST READ shopping tips here so you’re ready for this sale.As much as you can prepare for the sale ahead of time, the better off your experience will be! One of my main shopping tips for the sale is to maximize your bonus notes, which is a major perk Nordstrom offers. As a Nordy Club member, you earn points per dollar depending on your payment preferences, earning up to $3 per every $1 spent at Nordstrom! The sale is also a great time to use your double points day. You want to maximize your points on the day you plan to spend the most!
