If you’ve shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in the past, you know that whole saying in life about the early bird getting the worm is totally true! Normally there are four early access periods for the Anniversary Sale, but this year there are only going to be three.
The past FIVE YEARS Nordstrom has not guaranteed a restock on anything after the presale, so it’s becoming more important than ever to be a cardholder if you want full access to the best stuff when the pre-sale launches.

This is my NINTH year blogging about the best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!! Can you believe it?! So I think I’m safe to deem myself an expert and someone you can trust at this point!
I’m sharing all my BEST tips and tricks for getting the very most out of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with YOU! I’ll be giving you all the juice on which days the best deals are available, how to make sure you get what you really, really want from the Anniversary Sale before the good stuff gets picked over (or sells out!!), and talking restocks!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the BIGGEST and the BEST Nordstrom sale of the year!! The very best (and trickiest) part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is that the items are all BRAND NEW. Unlike the Nordstrom Clearance Sale or the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale where they discount things from that season or the previous season (like putting spring or winter items on sale now), you’ll only see new things!
The only downside is that it’s mostly fall styles and you may have to wait a bit to wear a coat or boots, but it’s worth it to get super cute, high quality clothes that will last all season at insanely great prices!
During the 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, we’ll be updating you DAILY on restocks, highly rated items, things I’ve tried on and worn and loved, and any other pro insider tips that you won’t find anywhere else. If you’re wondering what’s been restocked that day, just come back to THIS POST and we’ll have that updated for you DAILY.
Because I do SO MUCH shopping at Nordstrom to create blog content, I qualify for ICON level early access shopping. Stay tuned because I spend hours (last year I spent 11!) looking through, trying on, and matching up all THE BEST stuff in the sale! I spend all that time so that I can tell you what fits best, HOW it fits, if it runs big or small, what’s most comfortable, most flattering, etc.
I did an Instagram LIVE on the very first ICON level shopping day last year of some of the BEST things from the sale, along with some of the things I thought you could probably skip! Watch the video below!

We’ve rounded up some of our very FAVE home steals from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale below to help you get your home just right:
Let’s talk restocks! The Anniversary Sale is infamous for selling out and restocking all our faves throughout the sale! It can be MADDENING to try to search for these hidden gems daily in the sale, so we’re making it EASY for you. Soon, you will see all the best restocks, UPDATED DAILY, below!
Every pro-shopper knows you can’t go into a sale without a good game plan. There are literally tens of THOUSANDS of items included in each Anniversary Sale each year and HELLO that basically spells automatic overwhelm.
You can watch my YouTube video to get a little bit of an idea of what you might see on sale this year, but the most important thing to remember with your game plan is that EVERY STORE has different inventory, and the only way to know you’re for sure seeing everything is to look online! That’s the one place you will see EVERYTHING, and can see which stores are carrying the exact color and size of the things you want. Then you can reserve them for in-store pickup, or have them drop shipped to your front door. EASY!
We wouldn’t be besties if I didn’t make sure you had allllll the sale details. So here come my tips, tricks, and hints for maximizing your Anniversary Sale experience. Ready?
My biggest recommendation is to be totally prepared to shop the sale RIGHT when it opens to early access, and the only way to do this is with a Nordstrom Card. As you can see in the timeline above, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens early to Nordstrom Card holders up to 16 days before it opens to the public, depending on the status of your card!
If you apply and are approved for the Nordstrom Card, they will give you a $60 Nordstrom Note toward a future purchase!
Next, just remember as I mentioned before that each store will carry totally different stuff since they all have their own individual buyers. That’s why we work SO HARD to give you the guides that will show you all the best stuff in one place, including how things fit and whether to size up or down, what’s most flattering, etc.
Look at your closet, see what you really need right now. Is it one good pair of jeans? A staple bootie that will get you all through the winter? Maybe it’s a good new pair of shoes you can workout in? If you need to stick to a budget, go through your wardrobe FIRST so you know what to spend on and what to skip! Also, we’ll have our fall wardrobe checklist updated with my picks from the 2022 Anniversary Sale.
Things will sell out fast, so we will have our “what to buy FIRST” blog post up with the things we think are the most popular and will sell out first. BUT, a lot of things will restock throughout the sale. Check back here DAILY for a list of things that have restocked that day. And don’t lose hope if something you love sells out in your favorite color or size, because there’s a good chance it might come back!
The past couple of years, Nordstrom let you preview EVERY SINGLE THING that will be on sale at this link!!! Once the catalog is live, start browsing and be prepared with what you for sure want to buy once you have access to the sale.
I get the question a lot: is everything online available in-store, and vice versa. The answer is: EVERYTHING from the Anniversary sale is available online, but only SOME things are available in-store.
Insider tip: Each store has different buyers, so each store will carry different inventory.
If you shop at home for the things you’re dying to get, you can always do in-store pickup and grab the colors and sizes you REALLY want, and then add on whatever you find that you love in-store. But your only guarantee to see absolutely everything is online!
Also, if you’re worried about packages sitting on your doorstep, you can STILL order online and do in-store pickup.
My biggest recommendation is to be ready to shop the sale the SECOND it opens for Early Access. The ONLY way to do this is with a Nordstrom card. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens early to Nordstrom Card holders up to 16 days before it opens to the public, depending on the status of your card! Regardless of your status, Nordstrom cardmembers shop at least 12 days before everyone else!!
If you apply and are approved, Nordstrom will give you a $60 Nordstrom Note for a future purchase! Are you doing your happy dance yet?
If the Nordstrom credit card isn’t really your thing, let’s talk about the Nordstrom Rewards program. It’s completely free to join and super easy to sign up, and you’ll earn a $20 Nordstrom Note for every 2,000 points you accrue.
Important note: signing up for the Nordstrom Rewards program does NOT get you early access to the Anniversary Sale. You have to be a Nordstrom cardholder for early access. However, you do get access to perks like Curbside Pickup which is awesome during this sale!
There are NO promo codes for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. There’s no secret code that will allow you to shop early. The only way to get Early Access to the biggest fashion event of the year is to become a cardholder. If you’re not a cardholder, you have to wait for the sale to go public! But once YOU have access to the sale, the price you see is the price you pay – no codes necessary!! YAY!
Nordstrom cardholders and Nordy Club members earn points for any purchases made at Nordstrom. As long as you’re at least Influencer status, you can schedule Personal Double Points Days! Schedule a Personal Double Points Day during the Anniversary Sale and you earn 2X the points on your purchase! If you’re a Nordstrom credit card member, that’s 6 points (versus 3) for EVERY dollar you spend!
The most FAQ I get about the Anniversary sale is: will Nordstrom restock everything after the pre-sale? The first three years I blogged about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, almost everything that was available during the pre-sale was restocked completely when the sale opened to the public.
HOWEVER, the past five years, I’ve noticed that many of the items that were available during the pre-sale are not restocked once the sale opens to the public.
BUT, bookmark this page, because we’ll be updating you on restocks throughout the sale in this post!
If you see one of those red-hot sell out items that makes your heart flutter like Jonathan Taylor Thomas did in the 1990s, stick it in your cart and buy it online immediately. Even if you plan to shop the sale in person, you can still just have it waiting for you at in-store pickup with zero risk that your size or favorite color is out of stock by the time you get there.
We will include all of our guides in this post each day with COMPLETE coverage of the sale in every category! Including tons of helpful shopping guides and personal recommendations on our favorite Nordstrom Anniversary 2022 picks from handbags to shoes to dresses to everything in between!
If you’re as excited as I am (three Diet Cokes deep and standing outside of Disneyland levels of excited) then let’s dive in together! Below you’ll find all of our guides once the 2022 sale is live.
Can’t WAIT to crush it with you this year at the 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
One good knife. This is a principle I learned from my chef mama A Bountiful Kitchen: “I’d rather have one good knife in the kitchen than 100 crappy knives.” So buy wisely – get the ONE item you’re dying to have from the Anniversary Sale that will last you months and months instead of spending the exact same amount of money on ten items from a lower quality store that you’ll wear or use a couple times before it starts falling apart!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is THE very best sale of the year when it comes to getting extreme quality and major sale prices, and I’m so thankful to have you here to shop it with me!
