Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Early Access

Hey Friends - it’s that time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here. This is the best time to check out all of the new fall styles for the season and stock up on some wardrobe basics and splurge-worthy pieces like boots, jackets, handbags and high-end denim. And you save up to 40% off discounts on brands like SPANX, Sam Edelman, Tory Burch, Free People, Madewell, North Face and so much more!  Just like last year, I want to give you all a quick run-down of all of the details that you need to know to be fully prepared to shop without any hassles.

Nordstrom is doing things a little differently this year due to the COVID-19 situation.  Instead of canceling the event altogether, they decided to push the date back until August 19th.  And they added more time to shop for their loyal cardholders.  Here is the timeline for cardmember access and you can find out your access level by logging into your Nordstrom account. 



The best way to shop the sale before everything sells out is making sure that you have Early Access.  Nordstrom Cardholders have the opportunity to shop the sale about 2 weeks earlier than everyone else. But don't worry if you don't have a Nordstrom card, because the sale is open to the public on August 19th and some of the item will be restocked.

If you don’t already have a Nordstrom Credit Card, then you will need to sign up here to gain early access. And if you apply for the Nordstrom Card before July 10th, then you will get a $60 bonus note that can be used at a later time. 


The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale can be very overwhelming, especially if you don’t have a plan in place.  I think number one thing that you should do is to assess your fall wardrobe and make a list of items that you need to add/replace in your closet. And the second thing that would be helpful is to set an overall budget for yourself.  It’s super easy to get swept up in the excitement of the sale, believe me I know.  I’ve bought and returned a plenty of items in the past that weren’t within my budget and that I ultimately didn’t need.  

Pro Tip: Buy Now, Return Later - With that being said, don’t be afraid to order multiples sizes since some items sell out really fast and the shipping/return is free.  Be sure to focus on items that you use regularly and take advantage of stocking up on wardrobe basics and any home items.  This is also a good time to start thinking of holiday gifts.


The best way to get ready for the sale and to know what's included in the sale is to take a sneak peek of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Preview! This virtual catalog will make it easier to review and shop all of the items that are available and you can save all of your favorites to your wishlist. Having all of the items in your wishlist will make it easier to check out when you're ready. Here are my top picks that I have my eye on so far.  Some of them I already own and there are few already on my wishlist:


I’ve been shopping the Anniversary Sale for a few years now and I’ve noticed that Nordstrom tends to bring back some of the same items.  They may tweek an item here and there, but for the most part some are the same like these High-waisted Zella Leggings, this super soft Plush Throw, the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings, this Madewell Kent Cardigan Sweater and the infamous Barefoot Dreams In the Wild Throw.  

This year I plan to be very focused on things that I need to replace in my closet and a few items that I missed out on last year.  I plan to look for a really good pair of jeans, a couple of sweaters, basic t-shirts, a skirt and a couple of shoes.  I also plan to pick up a few beauty items because I've wanted one for a while now and it never goes on sale.

As always I'm very excited to cover the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Stay tuned for an upcoming try-on session on my blog and various collages on my account as soon as the sale goes live on Wednesday, August.  And be sure to check back on this post as I update the blog with additional #nsale content over the next few weeks. 

If you have any other questions, leave them in the comments! Who’s ready and excited?
