The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is starting soon and if you get a Nordstrom Credit Card, you’ll be able to access all the best deals before the sale opens to the public on July 15th.

The $60 bonus note is available to buyers who apply for a new Nordstrom card and purchase from Nordstrom on the same day. It’s a tempting instant bonus, but it expires on July 5th, so today is your last day to take advantage of this offer. And for diehard Nordstrom customers, you’ll have the chance to shop early for Nordstrom’s big anniversary sale.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is an annual event offering discounts on apparel, footwear, accessories, cosmetics, fragrance, and homeware for men and women. Brands featured in the sale include: Barefoot Dreams, Estée Lauder, Madewell, Nike, UGG and Zella.

With your new Nordstrom card, you’ll also earn at least two points for every dollar spent on the card at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, and Nordstrom Trunk Club stores. Thus, you will also earn loyalty points on your new card.

Nordstrom offers two types of cards, a Nordstrom Retail Card, which can only be used at Nordstrom stores, and a Nordstrom Visa Credit Card, which can be used anywhere Visa is accepted.

With a Nordstrom Visa card, you’ll earn one point for every dollar when you shop anywhere Visa cards are accepted, in addition to the rewards points you earn shopping at Nordstrom. The Nordstrom Visa also comes with no foreign transaction fees, so it’s a good card to take with you on your next trip abroad.

The Nordstrom card you receive is based on your credit history. If your credit is good, you will have a better chance of being approved for a Nordstrom visa. Applicants without Stellar Credit may still be eligible for the Nordstrom Retail Card. Interest rates on both Nordstrom cards are high. So you’ll want to pay your Nordstrom card in full each month to avoid facing hefty finance charges. Buy wisely.

By applying and getting approved for either card, you will gain early access to the Anniversary Sale.

When is early access? New Nordstrom card members will have early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starting July 9, six days before the public sale begins.

Nordstrom Card members are automatically enrolled in the Nordy Club, which grants status levels based on how much they spend at Nordstrom. New cardholders automatically start at Influencer status, the lowest spending tier. Cardholders who spend more are at higher status levels, Icon and Ambassador, and these Nordstrom customers have access to the Anniversary Sale on earlier dates. Nordstrom customers with Icon status can start shopping the Anniversary Sale on July 6, and customers with Ambassador status can access the offers on July 7.
