Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022


Behind every fashion-oozing closet is a savvy Nordstrom shopper. And, we're about to let you in on a little secret: the much-anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022 is just around the corner.

You've probably been waiting for it the moment you laid eyes on that Coach crossbody last year (or was it the Gucci Marmont bag?).

Well, the time has finally arrived—the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022 starts July 16 and ends August 29 (for the public). That's over six whole weeks of early access to fall's newest arrivals, all at major markdowns.

And, it's not just fashion-savvy Nordstrom shoppers who are excited about the sale. Beauty enthusiasts are, too. Because in addition to clothes, shoes, and handbags, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale also features some of the best beauty deals of the year.

I already have my list ready *flutters eyelashes in excitement*. Oh, the stunning pair of Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots – here I come!

There will be plenty of things to buy, the hottest items will fly off the shelves, and you shouldn't be left empty-handed and FOMO-ing later. So, embrace your inner shopaholic, set your alarms, and get your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale game plan ready. 

When Does the Sale Start?

The sale, this year, officially starts on July 6. If you're a lucky Nordy Club Icon card member, you'll be the first to step into the overflowing aisles of fashion and beauty deals this year!

Card members with an Ambassador status will get to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale on July 7. Whereas, Influencer cardholders can bop around the store on July 9.

If you don't have a Nordstrom card, fret not—there's still time to sign-up if you want all the dibs on the best sale items. And, you'll want to do it sooner rather than later because the sale opens to the public on July 16.

If you ask me, it's always a perk to have early access to the mega sale. Things get sold out in a jiffy!

But, if you want to avoid the in-store crowds (which I don't blame you for), then shopping online is your best bet. You can shop online from 12.01 AM ET on your respective date!

Who Can Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Everyone! Yes! Even you, my friend. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 20220 will be open to all. So, whether you have a Nordstrom card or not, you're in for some good deals. There is no coupon-clipping or special Nordstrom codes required. You'll just have to wait until your turn to shop comes around.

How Often Does the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Happen?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happens once a year. Yes! It's like good things come to those who wait. The sale is held every year in July and August. It means that the next Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will be in 2023.

So, if you miss it this year, don't worry. You'll have another chance to shop the hottest items of top brands the next summer!

How to Shop from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022?

Now that you know about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, it's time to start shopping!

Here are a few tips and tricks to help you shop like a pro:

Set a budget before the sale starts. It will help you avoid overspending on items you may not need.

Make a list of items you need or want. This way, you can focus on your shopping and not get distracted by all the hottest items.

Shop early! The best items always sell out quickly, so it's best to get your shopping done as soon as possible.

Check return policies before making a purchase. Nordstrom has a reasonable return policy, but it's always best to check before buying.

If you're shopping online to avoid the pull-and-tug of the in-store crowds, pay attention to the shipping deadlines. You can opt for same-day delivery for $15 only!

If you place an order by 4 PM, expect to receive it by 8 PM the SAME DAY! And, if you've taken your sweet let-me-evaluate-I'm-a-shopper time and placed your order after 4 PM, you'll get it the following day, even if it's a Saturday or Sunday!

I usually check with the Nordstrom store in my area if they offer same-day delivery! You can't blame them for being busy on the year's biggest shopping day.

What Am I Getting?

Well, I've had my fair share of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Hauls in the past, but I'm incredibly excited for this one. And have a lot of things to buy!!!

I've been eyeing a few hottest items, hoping to snag them before they sell out! I firmly believe in ‘there's no such thing as too many summer dresses,' so I always stock up on a few flowy dresses during the sale.

I'm also looking forward to picking up a new pair of Nike sneakers and some travel gear from the Anniversary Sale. Everyone has been telling me to try the On Cloudswift sneakers and at this price it is worth a shot.

Apart from everything fashion, I think it's an excellent time to invest in Viking cookware. Their Dutch oven is at 25%, and the amount of soup and stew I plan on making this winter… I might as well get it now! Oh, and the Click and Grow indoor garden, can't miss that!
