Nordstrom's rewards program called The Nordy Club rewards members with more perks the more they spend. With the new program, you earn points just for shopping at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook and subscription service Trunk Club (which you can find a review of here).

 Current rewards members and cardholders are automatically enrolled. If you're not one of them, you can enroll for free here and put your seasonal shopping to work toward better perks.

What perks come with The Nordy Club rewards program?

The new rewards program gets better the more you spend, unlocking a new status and new accompanying benefits, like access to beauty and style workshops, curbside pickup, and being the first to shop select brands.

In workshops, stylists help you curate your look using your budget and the diverse range of brands Nordstrom has access to. Curbside pickup means you can buy online and stop by a participating store, where a Nordstrom employee will walk the order out to your car.

You can also get free basic alterations at Nordstrom on regular priced items you bought from either Nordstrom or Trunk Club. Learn more about the perks here.

You earn one point per dollar, and you can unlock Nordstrom Notes with those points, which are essentially Nordstrom gift cards you earn. 

The membership levels are based on annual spending and follow this model — each with unique perks:

  • Member ($0-$500)
  • Insider ($500+)
  • Influencer ($2,000+)
  • Ambassador ($5,000+)

If you're a member with Ambassador+ status, you get access to one yearly visit from a Nordstrom Stylist to your home. The stylist will edit your closet with you and offer expert styling advice and tailoring services. If you have a favorite stylist, just call them when you're ready for a spring cleaning. 

Ambassador+ Status members also get priority access to style events and invite-only events and First to Shop Clear the Rack events (plus 25% off red-tag clearance items), alongside cardholders. 

Why The Nordy Club is better for Nordstrom cardholders:

Cardholders automatically get a $40 "Bonus Note" from the company when they make a purchase at Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack with the new card on the day they're approved. They also automatically get access to Insider Benefits and earn three points per dollar spent (triple what a non-cardholder earns). In addition to all the great member benefits, they also get early access to the Anniversary Sale and Clear the Rack events, plus $100 in alterations benefits, and all alterations made at Nordstrom stores will be reimbursed in the form of Nordstrom Notes equal to the exact dollar value of the charge on your Nordstrom card (up to the benefit amount listed).

The bottom line:

Either way you participate, Nordstrom's new rewards program is a great value if you take advantage of it — a cohesive addition to the brand that gets a good portion of its fanfare for its customer service, free shipping, and ambiguous but uniquely lenient return policy. The program is better for cardholders, but the average member can achieve benefits and perks just by shopping.
