When Is the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Nordstrom typically holds its Anniversary Sale in July, but the retailer pushed this year’s event back a month in 2020. The highly anticipated sale officially kicked off on Wednesday, August 19th — although Nordstrom cardholders were given first dibs on all the discounts starting August 4th. The event comes to a close on Sunday, August 30th.

The best offers tend to sell out fast, so shop as early as possible to get your hands on what you love. That being said, Nordstrom occasionally restocks select sale items throughout the event, so it doesn’t hurt to keep an eye out for anything you may have missed.

What Makes the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Special?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

There’s a reason the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale receives so much hype. Instead of simply discounting its unwanted summer leftovers, the retailer marks down brand-new arrivals for fall (i.e., every fashion lover’s favorite season). You’ll get free shipping and free returns on every order, or you can buy online and pick up in-store if you want your haul now.

Pro Tip: If you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, be sure to use your Personal Double Points Day(s) when you shop the sale. Doing so lets you earn double the points on your purchases in stores and online. You can schedule your Double Points Day whenever you choose during checkout at, or via the Nordstrom app.

Women’s Sale at Nordstrom

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The women’s section alone has thousands of items on sale from some of the store’s most beloved labels. We’re talking name-brand shoes and handbags, alongside outerwear, dresses and designer denim in more sizes than ever before.

Nordstrom always includes discounts on SPANX and Zella leggings during its Anniversary Sale, which makes it a great time to stock up on basics for fall. You can also save big on jewelry from Kate Spade and Kendra Scott, tote bags from Madewell and designer sunglasses from Gucci and Prada.

In other words, there’s something for everyone. Some of the best deals are on coats, boots, sneakers and pumps, but you’ll also find really great prices on jeans and jewelry.

Men’s Sale at Nordstrom

While this sale is largely aimed at the ladies, there are plenty of deals for guys, too. This year’s featured brands include Barbour, Calvin Klein, adidas, Cole Haan, Ted Baker and more.

Shop fall basics, outerwear, jeans and suiting in regular or Big & Tall sizing — but don’t overlook the store’s shoe deals. Men’s shoes are marked down big-time and are less picked-over than many of the women’s styles.
