The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale 2021: The Best Fitness Deals

Save big on sneakers, leggings, gear, and more

Our editors independently research, test, and recommend the best products; you can learn more about our review process here. We may receive commissions on purchases made from our chosen links.

As the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale has come and gone, we’ve stopped updating this post with sales and can’t promise the ones below are still available. Check back later this year for updated deals.

With summer right around the corner, sales on fitness equipment and apparel follow closely behind. And, big chain retailers like Nordstrom make it easy for us to snap up sale items at truly affordable prices with a swift click of our mouse, especially during its Half Yearly Sale.

From May 26 through June 6, you can save up to 50 percent off all kinds of fitness gear. While you'll find the best discounts on cold-weather gear (off-season), there are still lots of great leggings, sneakers, and shorts sales.

Here are a few of our picks to get you started, but act fast—sale items have limited availability, so once they sell out, they are gone.

If you're looking for something specific, check out these pages from Nordstrom:

What is the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale?

The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is the perfect time to score major markdowns on a vast selection of seasonal clearance items across all categories, including apparel, shoes, accessories, and home at up to 40 percent off.

FYI: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a bit different and that lets you shop brand-new arrivals at discount prices. Stay tuned for that sale in early summer.

When is the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale 2021?

This spring sale starts May 26 through June 6. You'll have 12 days to shop, plus it happens throughout Memorial Day Weekend so you might get an extra day off from work to peruse. There is also typically a Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale that hits right after Christmas, too.

What Can I Buy at the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale?

Truth be told, the summer, in general, is a great time to snag winter items. Granted you may not be looking for gear great for the cold, but shopping off-season is key to big savings. And come next winter you’ll be very happy you took the initiative to save money. However, there are many items on sale than just winter gear, though.

With so much great stuff, you’ll want to arrive (online!) early, because sale items tend to go fast, especially with limited product availability. That said, you still may want to continue to scroll through the sale pages throughout the sale because you might see something on a second or third perusal that you missed on the first go-around.

Knowing what goes on sale ahead of time can help you plan better. Impulse buys are great, but what do you specifically need (or want)? Have your sights on a new pair of sneakers? Trying to score a deal on a cozy winter jacket? Want to up your face glam game for your next Zoom meeting? There will be tons of options, and going in with a plan can help you zero in on the must-haves, while still snagging a few random items along the way, if you so desire. 

Does the Half Yearly Sale Include Nordstrom Rack?

You are probably wondering if these great deals extend to Nordstrom Rack—and unfortunately, the answer is no. But that site already has great deals, so don’t let that burst your bubble.

For those Nordstrom loyalists out there, shopping at the retail giant’s sale will help you score those coveted points. Racking up those points (one point per dollar with every purchase) directly translates into Nordstrom Notes, which is basically free cash to spend on the site or in stores.
