Best Black Friday Deals at Costco

The warehouse club is offering its members some noteworthy bargains on electronics.

Costco Wholesale is a haven for discount shoppers year-round, but it's especially popular during the holidays when members stock up on food and drink in bulk for family gatherings. This year, they might also want to stock up on cheap electronics, either for themselves or as gifts for others.

We sifted through Costco's Black Friday ad, talked with shopping experts and checked deal Web sites to find out which marked-down items might be worth your hard-earned cash. Below are three standout deals on electronics. Keep in mind that you must be a Costco club member to take advantage of the Black Friday sale. Stores will open at 9 a.m. on Black Friday, but some deals will be available online starting Thanksgiving Day.

Dell Inspiron 5000 Series 15.6-Inch Full HD Touchscreen Laptop, $700: DealNews.com included this Dell laptop (regular price: $900) from Costco as part of their best Black Friday deal picks. It comes with a sixth generation Intel Core i7 processor, 1080p resolution, full HD touchscreen and Windows 10. It will be available in-store and online while supplies last through November 30.

Vizio 40-Inch Class 1080p Smart LED LCD TV E40-C2, $285: Club members can enjoy great savings on lesser-known electronics brands, says Howard Schaeffer, vice president of merchandising for deal site Offers.com.

Vizio's E-series of televisions, which this particular set is part of, received a rating of 8.1 (out of 10) on electronics review site CNet.com.
