If you’ve been considering adding a Chromebook or Dell Inspiron to your life, you don’t have to wait until Black Friday to save big on a sale at Costco if you have a membership. The big box dynamo decided not to wait until the actual day before unveiling its huge catalog of holiday savings, which includes both in-store and online sales that are available right now and more that will arrive on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Shopping Costco Black Friday sales don’t have to be scary, especially if you do it online. Don’t have a Costco membership? Now might be the time to sign up.
Don’t have time to pore through that big catalog yourself? No problem, we did it for you and found a handful of deals we think are worth your time. Take a look.
Costco deals available now
These are the items you can get right now (with a Costco membership, of course), and through Nov. 21. To find out what’s coming closer to Black Friday, scroll down a bit.
Built with students in mind, the S340 offers 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a full-HD display. To put this deal in some perspective, Lenovo proper charges $250 for a configuration with half the storage and a lower-resolution screen.
Assuming you don’t need the horsepower of an Intel i5 or i7 processor, Dell’s Core i3 machine can handle everyday computing on the cheap. You get 8GB of RAM, an usually large (512GB) solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch touchscreen with unusually good resolution (1,920×1,080 pixels). This is a particularly good configuration for the price.
Costco deals available later this month
The store is saving some of the best items for later. Take a look at what’s coming starting Nov. 21.
Currently $190, Costco’s bundle is already a slightly better-than-average deal because it includes an extra band. But assuming that price stays the same, the upcoming $50 discount will make this one of the best Versa 2 deals we’ve seen yet. Read our Fitbit Versa 2 review.
Currently on sale for $250, this Costco-exclusive bundle will drop another $50 starting Nov. 24. It includes not only a second controller (a $60 value), but also a three-month Game Pass Ultimate subscription (a $45 value). It doesn’t come with any games, however, so you may want to keep an eye out for other Xbox bundles. Read our Xbox One S review.
Available exclusively at Costco, the Shadow Edition of the popular Sonos Beam soundbar was “specially tuned by Oscar-winning sound engineers to emphasize the sound of the human voice so you can always follow the story.” Beam deals are rare, so getting $100 off this special model is pretty solid.
Those are some of our top picks from Costco’s holiday catalog. After you’ve looked through it yourself, hit the comments and let us know which deals jumped out at you!
