Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is kind of a big deal. The two-week savings extravaganza is the only time all year that many of Nordstrom's most-coveted styles and designers will go on sale at all. Shoppers can expect discounts of 30% to 50% on fashion, shoes, beauty, accessories, and home goods from top brands like Vince Camuto, AG Jeans, and Sam Edelman. Nordstrom's exclusive house brands like BP and Halogen are also included in the sale.
The once-a-year event is so hotly anticipated that many of the styles sell out within minutes of the sale going live. (This year, the sale opens to the public at 12:30 ET on Wednesday, August 19.) But the saaviest savers know that the sale actually starts earlier—at 12:30 ET on Thursday, August 13. The early access from August 13–August 19 is only open to Nordstrom credit cardmembers.
For new Nordstrom credit cardmembers, the benefits are huge right now. Here are the ones we're most excited about:
