work for you?
There are sales, and then there are sales -- and Nordstrom's anniversary event is definitely the latter. One of the most highly anticipated shopping extravaganzas of the year for fashionistas everywhere, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is back with incredible savings on pre-season styles, home goods, beauty exclusives and more. We're sharing some of our favorite deals and helping you save big with insider tips and tricks.
What Makes the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Special?
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.
Nordstrom already gave its cardholders early access to its anniversary specials, causing the store's website to crash on the very first day it launched. As of July 20, the sale is officially open to the rest of us -- but not for long. These exclusive offers are selling out fast and will go back to full-price on Aug. 6, so shop early to get your hands on the best deals.
Slick Tip: If you're not a Nordstrom Rewards member already, you'll want to sign up before shopping this year's anniversary sale. Nordstrom Rewards members typically earn one point per dollar spent regardless of how they pay, but members will earn 3x the points on purchases of $200 or more now through Aug. 5. Just enter your Rewards number at checkout or tell your salesperson you're a Rewards member to take advantage of the savings. That being said, it takes a whopping 2,000 points to earn a $20 Nordstrom Note, so you'll want to take advantage of the bonus point events held throughout the year to help you rack up the rewards faster.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Highlights
Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is packed with the hottest fall trends for women, men and kids. The store also has beauty exclusives, home essentials, baby gear and random luxuries that you can either give away or keep all to yourself.
Here's our roundup of all the best deals:
Women's Sale at Nordstrom
The women's section alone has more than 3,400 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 regular, petite, plus and maternity sizes. In other words, there's quite literally something for everyone. Some of the best deals are on coats, boots and pumps, but you'll also find really great prices on jeans and jewelry.

Slick Tip: Stocking up? Nordstrom cardholders can schedule anywhere from one to four "Personal Triple Points Days" per year. That means you'll earn points 3x as fast on your Nordstrom credit and debit card purchases in stores and online anytime you choose -- even during the Anniversary Sale. (For example, you'd earn a $20 Note for every $334 you spent on your scheduled Personal Triple Points Day.) Schedule these in-store or online during checkout to make the most of your style splurges.
Men's Sale at Nordstrom
While this sale is largely aimed at the ladies, there's plenty of deals for guys, too. Shop fall basics, outerwear, jeans and suiting in regular or big and tall sizing -- but don't overlook the store's shoe deals.
