We love these products, and we hope you do too. E! has affiliate relationships, so we may get a small share of the revenue from your purchases. Items are sold by the retailer, not E!.

Don't you just love the summer holidays? We mean, the shopping holidays, of course. The Fourth of July brought us fireworks-worthy blowout sales, and now the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here!

Here's everything you need to know to score deeper discounts than ever:

When is the 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The sale runs in two phases:

• All Nordstrom cardmembers can shop Early Access starting August 13. And depending on your Nordy Club status, you could be able to shop even earlier.
• The public sale begins online August 19 at 9:30 a.m. ET / 6:30 a.m. PT.
• The sale lasts through August 30.

Wait, tell me more about this Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access thing.
The higher your Nordy Club status, the earlier you shop. (Psst...check your Nordy Club status here.)

• Nordy Club Icons: August 4
• Nordy Club Ambassadors: August 7
• Nordy Club Influencers: August 10
• Nordy Club Insiders: August 13

Plus, use your Nordy Club Personal Double Points Day to earn 2X the points on any day you choose. (Needless to say, we def recommend joining the Nordy Club before the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale if you haven't already.)

Not a cardmember? Now is the time to sign up. Nordstrom is currently offering a deal where if you become a new Nordstrom credit cardmember and make a purchase that same day, you'll receive a $60 Bonus Note good for a future purchase.
