Purses are on the pricier side but that comes as no surprise. These are highly discounted premium brands that will cost significantly more after the sale.
LINGERIE & SLEEPWEAR
I’ll do a try-on session for you once my online order arrives. Although I’m on a budget, I have quite a few of these bestsellers on my wishlist.

How to Shop Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Early Access WITHOUT a Nordstrom Card
You have two options to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Early Access deals without a Nordstrom credit card.
OPTION 1: SHOP THE SALE THROUGH FAMILY
Do you know someone who has a Nordstrom card? Ask the person to allow you use their account to shop. The card is the key that allows you to access the sale. But once you get to the checkout page, you can swap their Nordstrom card for your credit card. It’s that easy!
OPTION 2: USE THIS INSIDER CODE
This option allows you to shop the Anniversary Sale without a credit card and without a middleman. It however involves a little more steps. And as of the time of writing this post, this process worked. Here’s how it works:
- Step 1: Create an account if you don’t already have one.
- Step 2: Click on “Anniversary Sale Early Access” on the top left navigation bar. Then click on a category (like “clothing“)
- Step 3: You’ll see a yellow notification that says, “You’re sneaking a peek at Early Access”. Click on a product you’re interested in.
- Step 4: On the product page right below the size and color information, click on “Confirm Card to Add to Bag”
- Step 5: Enter the following details then click “Confirm & Shop Now” to shop the sale.
Last 4 digits of your Nordstrom Card: 3012

Billing Zip Code: 80111
You might be asked to login again before you check out. Simply enter your Nordstrom login information. The above gives you permission to shop the sale. I actually learned about this insider tip from Jess of WhatJessWore.
Last year, I was able to access the sale page, add an item to my cart and make it to the checkout page without any problems. As a disclosure, I used my Nordstrom card to shop the 2018 sale. And plan to do the same thing this year.
You are welcome to try either of these two options to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Early Access without a Nordstrom card. Or wait until July 19th at 12:30 PM EST to shop once the sale officially opens to the public (public access).
