What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Simply put, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is Nordstrom’s BIGGEST sale of the year!  A huge selection of Fall merchandise is put on sale BEFORE the season even starts, ensuring that you can wear it all season long. Instead of last season’s leftovers, you’ll have access to all of the newest trends. Instead of 1-2 items in varying sizes, you’ll have access to a full size range and color range for items included in the sale.

How to get a FREE $20 Nordstrom Note to spend at the Anniversary Sale

nordstrom free 20 nordstrom note

Last year, Nordstrom was offering a $20 Nordstrom Note (aka gift card) if you got approved for a Nordstrom credit card by July 9 and when you make a purchase anywhere in the world of Nordstrom the day you’re approved. Let’s see if they run this program again! Even if you don’t get a $20 Nordstrom Note, you’ll receive early access to shop the sale.

If you don’t want a card, you can STILL join Nordstrom’s rewards program AND you’ll even get a $10 promo Nordstrom Note to spend at the Anniversary Sale (The main difference between this offer and the one above is that this Nordstrom Note is limited to be spent at the sale, while the Nordstrom Note you earn via the credit card has a much longer validity). You can join by clicking here and then verifying your phone number. You’ll receive your $10 promo code before the sale start.

The Nordy Club

For those who are new to the program, The Nordy Club is divided into 4 levels: Member, Influencer, Ambassador and Icon. Everyone starts off as a Member and you work your way up with your net spend at Nordstrom.  All cardholders start at the Influencer level.

Every dollar you spend at Nordstrom will earn you points. Once you reach 2000 points, you’ll receive a $20 Nordstrom Note to use online or in stores.

Card holders earn 2 points per dollar. Non-card holders earn 1 point per dollar. Ambassador and Icon status members earn 3 points per dollar!

My favorite benefits of being a Nordy Club member (and card holder) are that I get to shop Early Access at the Anniversary Sale, my own Triple Points days where I earn 3x the points on all my purchases and the alterations benefit. There are also exclusive events like the Nordstrom Holiday Party which is my annual tradition with my girlfriends and some really cool VIP fashion experiences if you’re an Ambassador or Icon. One day I’d love to take part in one of those!
