1. What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the retailer’s biggest discounted period of the entire year — and yes, that includes Black Friday and Cyber Monday! If you’re looking for designer duds without breaking your bank, this is a great time to load up your cart, thanks to steep discounts on everything from clothing to home goods to beauty products and beyond.

 

2. When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins just after midnight ET on July 15, 2022. If you’re on the West Coast, you get to enjoy the bargains even earlier at 9 p.m. PT on July 14, 2022.

If you’re a Nordstrom cardmember (also known as the “Nordy Club”), you get to take advantage of the Anniversary Sale discounts even sooner. However, that also means you’ll have to be a bit of a big spender to begin with (and if you’re reading this from The Krazy Coupon Lady, we’re going to go out on a limb and assume that’s probably not who you are). In any case, the Nordy Club has three tiers, each with their own starting time for the Anniversary Sale and spending requirements for entry:

Influencer: Influencers must spend at least $2,000 in a single year at Nordstrom and can enjoy the Anniversary Sale prices starting on July 9, 2022.
Ambassador: Ambassador status requires an annual minimum of $5,000 spent at Nordstrom. Ambassadors can access the Anniversary Sale beginning on July 7, 2022.
Icon: If you’ve achieved Icon status, that means you’ve spent at least $15,000 at Nordstrom in a single year — and that you can access the Anniversary Sale before anyone else on July 6, 2022.

If you aren’t a cardmember yet, you can sign up here and get a $40 bonus note to use towards your Anniversary Sale haul.

 

3. When does the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale end?

Be quick! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale wraps up on August 1, 2022, at 2:59 a.m. ET. West Coast shoppers have until 11:59 p.m. PT on July 31, 2022, to check out their carts.

Not only can you shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale online, but Nordstrom actually recommends it, as stores can get really crowded during this period.

 

8. Is Nordstrom Rack part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Two words: We wish. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale applies only to Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com. Nordstrom Rack is its own (beautiful) beast and doesn’t have a part in the big annual sale.
