Costco is hosting a few “pre-pre-Holiday” deals, and it has shared some of its plans for the big shopping holiday that kicks off on Thanksgiving Day (November 28th) and continues through Black Friday (November 29th). Unlike some other retailers, Costco locations will be closed in observance of Thanksgiving in the US and opening up for business on Black Friday. However, it’ll be open for business via its online store around the clock.

Below are the very best deals that you can get right now (assuming you already have a Costco membership, which is required to shop there) as well as the deals that we’re most looking forward to. We’ll be updating this post promptly as deals come and go.


The latest iteration of the 13-inch MacBook Pro (Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage; pictured above) is $250 off of its usual price. It’s $1,199 right now, which is $100 less than the base model with 128GB of storage costs. You should consider this model if you’ve been waiting on a deal for a MacBook Pro with a decent amount of storage.

Apple’s 21.5-inch iMac (4K display, Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, 1TB Fusion Drive, Radeon Pro 560X graphics) is down to $1,149 for Costco members right now. That makes it $300 off of the usual cost, and if you prefer macOS over Windows 10, this is a good deal on a capable desktop that has a crisp 4K display.

Dell’s latest XPS 13 laptop (4K display, 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10710U CPU, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD storage) will be $1,399 starting on Thanksgiving Day.

Home entertainment

The Sonos Beam soundbar will be $70 off starting on Thanksgiving Day through Costco’s online store; it will be available in stores on Black Friday. Normally $399, this price cut down to $329 will be the biggest discount that we’ve seen yet by $20. Verge editor-in-chief Nilay Patel praised this soundbar in his review as a “great upgrade for TV sound” that’s “simple to set up and use.” It also can be synced with other Sonos Wi-Fi speakers to create a bigger sound.

TCL’s excellent 65-inch 6-series 4K HDR TV with Roku software will be $599.99. This will be the most affordable price that we’ve seen for this model. So you know, it’s the 2018 model (the 2019 model is $799), but it’s still one of the better TVs that you can pick up this holiday season. The built-in Roku software outclasses what you’ll find in most competing smart TVs, and it’s compatible with Disney+ and Apple TV Plus without the need for extra equipment.


Like most other retailers, Costco will be offering a nice discount on the Xbox One X. It will be $349 ($150 off), but unique to Costco is that the console comes bundled with an extra black wireless controller.
