Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2024: How To Shop The Sale & My First Picks


The long awaited annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has started for Icon cardholders! If you are new to the #NSale, the Anniversary Sale is when Nordstrom brings out LOTS of new fall season styles and immediately marks them down so you can get both wardrobe staples and new trends for the season at big discounts before the fall season even begins. This annual sale is different than retailer traditional sales. Instead of items being marked down as the season ends, NEW items are discounted before the season even begins!

FYI, all of my #NSale 2024 coverage can be found by clicking on “NORDSTROM SALE” in the top menu here on (If browsing on your phone, tap the 3 lines at the top, for the dropdown menu.) As I add new posts, they will be added to that tab.

What Is The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is considered the most important sale of the year. This sale has become legendary among Nordstrom customers who enjoy outstanding savings on the most exciting new Fall and Winter items. There’s also summer items on sale too at deep discounts! I have been shopping at Nordstrom for several years now. I first discovered the department store when I starting this blog in 2014. I was blown away at all the brands they carry in the stores and online! Shopping online at Nordstrom is super easy, convenient, fast free shipping and they have free return shipping too!

The Anniversary Sale is when I buy any capsule wardrobe foundation essentials like tees, jeans, sweaters, cardigans and shoes. If there are any clothes or shoes in my wardrobe that need replacing, the Anniversary Sale is the perfect time to buy quality-made items at low prices.

Anniversary Sale Shopping Tips

Shop Online – Since I live about 3 hours away from the nearest Nordstrom retail store, I always shop the sale online. I’ve heard from other fashion bloggers that shopping in the store, especially the first few days of the sale, is very busy! When I shop online, it’s quick to find what I’m looking for, especially using the “wish list” feature, you instantly can pick your sizes and you save time and shop from the convenience of your home!

Buy Multiple Sizes – Items sell out quickly, so if you need to exchange your item for another size, it might be available. If I’m unsure about what size to buy, I will buy two sizes, then send back the one that does not fit with free shipping.

Keep Checking On Items That Sell Out – If an item that you want sells out, keep checking back. Nordstrom will often restock return items, so your size may become available.

Download the Nordstrom App – you can get notified when items in your Wish List and Shopping Bag are back in stock using the Nordstrom App. When I am on my phone, I prefer using the App since the menu stays at the bottom of the screen and is easy to access.

Double Your Rewards – Cardmembers can use a Personal Double Points Day to earn 2X the points on any day you choose.

Get Email Updates – Sign up for emails so you can stay up to date on Anniversary Sale news.

Contactless Curbside Pickup – It’s a fast and convenient way to get your Anniversary Sale finds! Click here to find a Nordstrom store near you.
