Welcome to the promotion of Black Friday, which falls on November 23 this year. And with about three weeks to go, dealers are already raging on early offers and preview of upcoming campaigns.
Case in point: Costco has announced hundreds of discounts ̵
According to a preview of the company's circular published earlier this week by bestblackfriday.com, Costco has some doozies on tires. The list of no-brainers includes
Of course, Costco's Black Friday campaigns are available to members only; Annual plans are available for $ 60 to $ 120. As usual, the company's deals cover a wide range of categories including TVs, tablets, laptops, headphones, game consoles and top brands such as Apple, Dell, Bose and Google.
Like many dealers, Costco will shut their doors on Wednesday night before Thanksgiving Day and reopen at 9.00 local time on Black Friday. Most of Costco's offers will be available both in stores and online, but some will be exclusive online.
Here are the best deals we have found in Costcos Black Friday sales:

Tablets, Notebooks and Peripherals for PC
Surface Pro 6 Type of Cover and Surface Pen for $ 800 ($ 200 Off)
Sarah Tew / CNET
The Brand New Version Of Microsoft Windows 10 The tablet is a nice refinement of the form. In fact, the biggest problem we have is that the pen and keyboard – both necessary accessories – do not come into the box. This Costco package addresses this issue, including both (a $ 230 value) at no additional cost.
2018 Apple iPad (Gold, 32GB) for $ 250 ($ 70 off)
Apple made its flagship iPad even better with the latest version, released in March. This is probably the lowest price for what we see this year. Just notice that this deal also appears to be on Target, so there will probably be other places.
Lenovo IdeaPad 330 Core i5 12GB RAM 1TB HDD for $ 450 ($ 100 off)
It's not the finest laptop in the world but it's slim and easy – and this configuration is loaded with knockout components . At this price it is worth a serious look.
Dell XPS 13 for $ 1500 ($ 500 off)
We do not know exactly which configuration Costco sells with this promotion – but XPS 13 is one of the best 13-inch laptops, and this is a significant discount.
Dell UltraSharp 27 InfinityEdge Monitor for $ 300 ($ 70 off)
Dell UltraSharp 27 is light, with good overall resolution and color quality – and Costco has it at the lowest price we've seen.
Smart Home & Home Appliances
Dyson V8 Animal + for $ 300
Dyson's latest wireless vacuum is better, faster and quieter than its predecessor, giving about 40 minutes of battery life. Costco comes through with the lowest price we have seen to date.
Arlo Pro HD Security Camera (3 Pack) for $ 300 ($ 170 Off)
The Arlo Pro cameras provide reliable direct streaming, fast activity alerts, and durable, weatherproof housing. Unless you absolutely want cameras you can control with your voice, this is worth a serious look.
Google Home Mini (3 Packages) for $ 70 ($ 30 off)
Surprisingly good sound in a colorful, compact and tasteful package. Plus all the smarts of Google's assistant. Especially if you have an Android phone, this is a smart speaker. We see this at Target for $ 25, so this represents a $ 5 discount if you buy three.
Bose On-Ear Wireless Headphone for $ 100 ($ 60 off)
Sarah Tew / CNET
This Bose on-ear wireless model is an old favorite of us . And our only major complaint – the high price – has been dramatically reduced by Costco's Black Friday campaign.
Costco has not announced the final price of this Xbox One S package that includes console, two controllers and a 3 month game Pass membership. The game system, which usually comes with only one controller, usually sells for around $ 400. An additional controller sells for around $ 50. And the game pass costs $ 10 per month. You are doing math.
Fitbit Versa with two bands for $ 50 off
Costco has not listed the discount price for this Versa package – but the watch usually sells for around $ 200 and comes with a set of big and small bands. This package contains an extra large band. (Versa will also be on Target for $ 150.)
