It’s that time of year again! Nordstrom is hitting us hard with their yearly anniversary sale and our jaws have already dropped before it’s even started for non-card members.
While the sale officially started on August 4 for selected cardholders, the sale will begin on August 13 for everybody else—but Nordstorm is allowing everyone to preview deals right now even if you aren’t in the Nordy Club. That means you can select your favorite sale items ahead of time and make a purchase before the best deals sell out. And because of COVID-related disruptions to the spring shopping season, Nordstrom is practically giving stuff away this time around. Seriously, check out the sales deals for yourself. There are price drops we thought were otherwise completely unimaginable — so you better act fast and add what you want to your cart now.
From Adidas sneaks under $50 to our favorite Heschel Duffle at the lowest price it’s ever been, this sale has us completely awestruck. It’s going to be nuts. If you’re looking to get in on it but don’t know where to start, check out our favorite picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale below.
