Black Friday is only weeks away, and big retailers are getting an early jump on the savings with sales that start well before the big day. Costco will be getting the ball rolling with bargains that consumers can avail themselves of almost a full week before they dive into their turkey.
Costco's deals begin a full week before Black Friday in an official pre-Black Friday sales event set to begin on Nov. 20. Customers looking for a new flagship Samsung smartphone are in luck. Costco is offering a $250 Costco cash card with purchase of either a Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge+. Members will also receive an exclusive accessory pack.
The best tech deals of the bunch include Samsung Ultra HD 4K Smart TVs at big savings: $500 off on a Samsung 55-inch Class 4K Ultra HD Smart LED LCD TV, now $1,479.99 on sale for $979.99, $700 off on a Samsung 65-inch Class 4K Ultra HD Smart LED LCD TV now $1,899.99, on sale for $1,199.99, $1,200 off on a Samsung 75-inch Class 4K Ultra HD Smart LED LCD TV, now $3,779.99, on sale $2,579.99 and $270 off on a Samsung 40-inch Class 4K Ultra HD Smart LED LCD TV, now $729.99 on sale for $459.99.
Vizio 4K Ultra HD TVs are also on sale, but the savings aren't as great and echo that of other big box competitors: $170 off on a Vizio 55-inch Class 4K Ultra HD Smart LED LCD TV now $879.99, on sale for $709.99, $140 off on a Vizio 50-inch Class 4K Ultra HD Smart LED LCD TV now $698.99, on sale for $558.99, $300 off on a Vizio 70-inch Class, now $1,949.99, on sale for $1,649.99 and $90 off on a Vizio 43-inch Class 4K Ultra HD Smart LED LCD TV now $579.99, on sale for $489.99.
Note that the sale on these tech products runs from Nov. 20 through Nov. 30, but this is not the official Costco Black Friday sale, which will commence on the day itself, Nov. 27. Costco is closed on Thanksgiving Day, and many of the other deals on non-technology products listed as part of the pre-Thanksgiving sale are only available through Nov. 25, so if you're perusing the flyer, make sure you distinguish between the deals that extend through Black Friday and those that don't.
