My Guide to the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale


I am new to blogging (started back in March of 2018) and this is my first-time hearing about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale {I know shocker} and I can’t wait to participate! If you follow a lot of fashion blogs like I do, I am sure you’ve seen a ton of posts about this topic. Since this is such a huge deal in the retail world I decided to take the time to do some research for you all and give you the rundown of everything you need to know about the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  P.S. I wanted to learn too so I can have the best experience possible!



The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts tomorrow (July 12th) for card members and ends Thursday, July 19th. You want early access so you’ll get first pick of all items on sale before the general public. I hear things run out fast and it’s very competitive so apply for a Nordstrom credit card. Access to the general public starts Friday, July 20th and goes to Sunday, August 5th. On August 6th all prices will be marked back up!


Why Become A Card Member

By becoming a card member, you’ll earn 2 points per dollar spent in stores and online at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook and Trunk Club. If you spend $100 on the day your new card is approved, you’ll get a $20 note.


What to Shop For

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale allows you to shop brand-new arrivals at super-low prices. It’s the perfect time to shop for Fall clothes and build up your wardrobe with sweaters, jeans, boots, scarves and jackets. I love the Summer but I also look forward to the Fall for apple picking, pumpkin picking, cozy bonfires, warm spiked cider, Halloween and well you get the point! It’s so important to look chic for every season so don’t loose out and shop this amazing event early so you’ll be ready for Fall!
