Tips & Tricks to Get Early Access

There is one thing you need to konw, Nordstrom cardholders get to shop the Anniversary Sale before it opens to the public everyyear. Cardmembers shop 7 days before everyone else and can unlock exclusive perks. During this Pre-Sale, many of the most popular items go out of stock quickly! Apply for a Nordstrom card now to receive Anniversary Sale Early Access.

Early Access will give you the first chance to snag brand-new arrivals at super-sale prices for the Anniversary Sale. During the Anniversary Sale, all Nordy Club Nordstrom cardmembers receive Early Access to shop. Nordy Club cardmembers with Icon, Ambassador or Influencer status will more time to shop Early Access, depending on how high their status is.

Depending on your Nordy Club access, you can shop the sale during the Early Access period. Early Access enables Nordy Club members exclusive access to the sale before the sale is open to the general public.



Early Access offers Nordstrom cardholders exclusive access to the sale. Last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access dates are from August 4 through August 18 before the sale opens to the general public on August 19. It’s the best time ensure the best items are still in stock. If you’re not a cardholder, I recommend it as it has plenty of other perks.


Early access to the sale is available to all Nordstrom cardmembers automatically. Access is available to all card levels and card types. If you don’t have a card, you’ll need to sign-up for a Nordstrom credit card by August 3. See below.


Nordstrom offers two types of cards, the retail card or Visa Signature card. Both cards provide the same Nordstrom benefits, including early access to the sale. However, Visa Signature cardholders will earn additional Nordstrom points with any purchase using the card. Applying is easy and you can start shopping instantly, if approved.

Why apply:

  • Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (which is huge!)
  • If approved, you can sign in to access your card online and start shopping right away.
  • Earn 2 points per dollar spent in stores and online at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook and Trunk Club.
  • Plus, get a $20 bonus Note when you spend $100 at Nordstrom with your new Nordstrom card the day you’re approved.
  • Enjoy the benefits of being a Nordstrom cardholder.
  • No annual fee
  • 24/7 Nordstrom Customer Service

TOP TIPS for the sale

We wouldn’t be besties if I didn’t make sure you had all the sale details. So here come my tips, tricks, and hints for maximizing your Anniversary Sale experience. Ready?

Shop early

My biggest recommendation is to be totally prepared to shop the sale RIGHT when it opens to early access, and the only way to do this is with a Nordstrom Card. As you can see in the timeline above, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens early to Nordstrom Card holders up to 10 days before it opens to the public, depending on the status of your card!

Cash in

If you apply and are approved for the Nordstrom Card, they will give you a $40 Nordstrom Note toward your first purchase at the sale!

Each store is different, but online is king

Next, just remember like I mentioned before that each store will carry totally different stuff since they all have their own individual buyers. That’s why we work SO HARD to give you guys the guides that will show you all the best stuff in one place, including how things fit and whether to size up or down, what’s most flattering, etc.

Know what you need

Look at your closet, see what you really need right now. Is it one good pair of jeans? A staple bootie that will get you all through the winter? Maybe it’s a good new pair of shoes you can workout in? If you need to stick to a budget, go through your wardrobe FIRST so you know what to spend on and what to skip!

Check back for restocks

Things will sell out fast, so we will have our “what to buy FIRST” blog post up with the things we think are the most popular and will sell out first. BUT, a lot of things will restock throughout the sale. Check back here DAILY for a list of things that have restocked that day. And don’t lose hope if something you love sells out in your favorite color or size, because there’s a good chance it might come back!
