Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Starts Starts August 2020 With An Early Preview July 24th for All

Guess what? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts in August and has an early preview coming July 24th for everyone! Typically the sale happens in July but as per an earlier post I did back in April I did mention that Nordstrom might postpone the Anniversary Sale and that’s exactly what they did as it’s happening nearly a month after the traditional date! And I’m ok with that! Don’t get me wrong I love shopping the sale as much as everyone else but I’m not always ready for Fall Fashion and Makeup Collections in July as it feels like they are rushing Summer away too quickly. August 13th is perfect as it’s just right to start planning your wardrobe and color choices for the autumn season ahead.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was delayed due to the impacts of COVID-19 and Nordy’s did take a little extra time to ensure your comfort and safety of everyone when planning the event. This year Anniversary Sale will be from August 19–30 but depending your Nordy’s Status you can shop as early as August 13th.

All cardmembers can shop Early Access starting August 13 or even earlier depending on your Nordy Club status. Everyone else can officially shop the sale August 19–30. Any items on sale will remain on sale until August 31. You can shop the sale in stores that are open for business depending on your location during normal business hours and online shopping begins at 9:30am ET at nordstrom.com.

In a new twist Nordstrom is giving everyone early preview access on sale items starting July 24th which gives you an easier way to create a wish list. In the past, this was limited to card and reward members. But this year everyone will have a chance to view the offerings ahead of time. From my understanding there will be no print catalog this year and the preview will be online only.

Icon, Ambassador or Influencer status will get even more time to shop Early Access which also includes the six days of Early Access all card members get.


  • Icon: July 24th Preview Shopping Days August 4th-18th
  • Ambassador July 24th Preview Shopping Days August 7th-18th
  • Influencer July 24th Preview Shopping Days August 10th-18th
  • Insiders July 24th Preview Shopping Days August 13th-18th

The Anniversary Sale is coming to Canada starting August 19–September 3 at nordstrom.ca.

Sadly, the sale isn’t quite what it once was but I’m hoping since they had more time to prepare we’ll see a better job of it this year. Keeping my fingers crossed for that. I do think that year is going to a MAJOR sale. As in they’ll be a lot of luxury items on the chopping block. The “sale” isn’t typically a sale but the last two or so years and it’s actually turned into one and you can get some steep discounts. This year, I think you’ll see even more of that.

Are you excited about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’m excited. I usually buy running shoes and a few clothing pieces. Though, if they’re focusing on beauty and home this year, I wonder if we’ll get slim pickings for clothing. I haven’t really purchased beauty from the Anniversary Sale in the past few years because they’ve generally been quite boring and hardly “new” to me. We’ll see!

      I think they are going to slam us with a bit of everything and I think the sale prices are going to be really good because we’re all home and they wanna get that stay home dollar haha! ;-D My god it’s been awful the last several years just awful 🙁 I remember when they used to have really cool exclusives! No longer 🙁
