If you're a lover of all things fashion and can't wait to shop the next big trend, you probably know a thing or two about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021. It’s the best time of the year to grab department store's coveted designer items at new lows for men, women, children and the home, with deals on everything from best-selling clothes and shoes to top-rated purses and beauty products. That means a ton of big-name brands, including UGG, The North Face, Tory Burch, Nike and more,  introducing major price cuts on next season's most exciting items.

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021? 

This once-a-year sale sees markdowns on a wide variety of new arrivals for the fall season across almost every major category—we're talking Hunter rain boots, aromatherapy diffusers, Kiehl's beauty products and more. This savings bonanza is also only around for a limited time (it's a 12-day event for most shoppers), with the general public sale kicking off on Wednesday, July 28 see more details below). You don't have to wait to get a head start, however: You can check out the preview of this sale right now to start adding your favorites to your wishlist—something that's always a good idea, since top products tend to sell out quickly.

Nordstrom is also offering a $60 bonus note similar to a gift card for new cardmembers through Tuesday, July 27, which you can then use toward sale purchases or alterations. Right now you can apply for two kinds of Nordstrom cards: a retail card that can be used at Nordstrom stores and affiliated brands, or a Visa credit card. While you'll want to take advantage of these offers responsibly, both carry no annual fees and competitive APR rates, so you can decide which one works best for your current needs. 

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021?

The sale is currently live for Nordstrom Icons, a.k.a. cardholders who spend more than $15,000 a year at the department store. Starting July 14, Nordstrom Ambassadors (those who have racked up $5,000 or more on their card in the past year) can begin to shop. Next up, Nordstrom Influencers, or cardholders who have spent more than $500 in the past year, can start stocking up their carts on July 16. Finally, on Wednesday, July 28, everyone can shop the Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale. 

If you can’t wait until the end of the month, the retailer has tons of customer-favorite brands discounted right now. For instance, this Tory Burch McGraw leather crossbody purse is currently on sale from $378 to $264.60 in the Pink Magnolia shade. Nearly 200 Nordstrom buyers praised this handbag's ample pockets and elegant leather build, awarding it a near-perfect 4.9-star rating.
