What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The retailer describes the anniversary sale as its “biggest fashion event of the year,” where it has its biggest sales for a limited time. The sale falls on July 15 this year. Many speculate that Nordstrom chose to have the sale on that day to help combat Amazon’s Prime Day, which occurs from July 12–13. Nordstrom’s sale usually lasts for the entire month for card members and a few weeks for the general public.

The types of products that are usually on sale include clothing, shoes, jewelry, handbags, beauty supplies, and accessories. Peter and Erik Nordstrom, said, "We’re excited for you to see what we have in store this year.” They also said, “We do expect to sell out of our best items, so remember to shop early!” Peter is the President and Chief Brand Officer of the company, while Erik is currently the CEO.

Is a Nordstrom credit card worth it?

Currently, the general public can't see what items are on sale. Nordstrom card members have early access to certain discounted products and can see some exclusive sales ahead of time. The Nordstrom Visa credit card offers two rewards points per dollar spent shopping at the retailer and one point everywhere else.

For every 2,000 points earned, users receive $20 in Nordstrom shopping credit. There isn't an annual fee for the Visa card, and members have access to the Nordy Club, which is an exclusive Nordstrom membership. The company also offers retail credit and debit cards that can only be used for Nordstrom shopping and offers fewer perks compared to the Visa card.

The cards can be worth it if you’re a frequent shopper at the retailer and you have a strong desire to have early access to the anniversary sale. Otherwise, you can find better general rewards with other credit cards, and can simply put discounted items on your wishlist until the anniversary sale goes into effect.
