Getting a Nordstrom price match is one of the best parts of being a Nordy fan. Nordstrom will price match more than a dozen top competitors (including Amazon!), which means that they’ll pay you the difference if you find a lower price at any competitor within 10 days of your purchase. They’ll even match their own online prices if you find that an item is cheaper on than in stores.

For the most part, their price match policy is easy and straightforward, but like any store policy, it leaves room for some questions and “what if” scenarios. I’m here to clear all of that up for you.

To all my fellow Nordy fans, this one’s for you. I’ve spelled out everything you need to know about price matching at Nordstrom, including how to get a price match in store versus online, the exceptions to their policy, and the full list of retailers they’ll price match.

1. What is Nordstrom’s price match policy in stores?

If you’re requesting a price match in store at Nordstrom, just be sure to bring in proof of the lower price, like a printout of the competitor’s ad or even a link to the product listing on your phone. You’ll also want to have proof of your original purchase handy, like your store receipt or order confirmation email.

You have 10 days to request a price match after your purchase, but you can also get a price match before you buy the item if you can find a lower price. So before you check out in store, do a quick search on your phone to see if the item is cheaper anywhere else.

Once a Nordstrom sales associate verifies your price match, they’ll honor the lower price when you check out. If you already made the purchase, they’ll credit the difference back to the original payment method you used.

TIP: The Nordstrom return policy is super flexible, and you can take as long as you want to return a purchase. If an item goes on sale more than 10 days after you bought it, you can simply return your item and buy it again at the lower price point. No price match necessary!


2. Does Nordstrom do online price matching?

Yup, Nordstrom offers online price matching for purchases. If you’re looking to get a price match for something you bought online, you can submit your request through Nordstrom’s online price match form. You’ll just need to enter your order number and ZIP code to look up your order.

For online purchases, you must submit your price match request within 10 days of your shipment date (aka the date on your shipping confirmation email).


3. What are the exclusions to Nordstrom’s price match policy?

First off, you can only get one price match per item, so you can’t get a second price match if you happen to find an even lower price a few days later. Nordstrom also doesn’t process automated price match requests from third parties. So you can’t use automatic price protection services provided by your bank, credit card, or any other third-party service to claim the lower price.

Other price match exclusions include:

  • Items tied to an order-level discount, gift card promo, or shipping offer
  • Outlet, flash sale, auction, or “Marketplace” items from third-party sellers
  • Items from regional or non-U.S.-based retailers
  • Limited-time sale items (from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, Daily Deals, or Beauty Daily Deals promos)
  • Designer goods originally purchased at a sale price


4. Which retailers do they price match?

5. Does Nordstrom price match Amazon?

Yes! Nordstrom will match Amazon prices but only if the item is sold and shipped by Amazon. So if you bought the item from a third-party Amazon seller, Nordstrom won’t match the price. This is a pretty standard caveat for most retailers who price match Amazon.


6. Will Nordstrom price match Nordstrom Rack?

Actually, yes! Nordstrom will price match Nordstrom Rack if they have a lower price for the same item. Can I get a heck yeah?


7. Does Nordstrom offer price matching during their Anniversary Sale?
