Best Black Friday Deals at Costco

The venerated warehouse chain unleashes holiday bargains in hopes you’ll also snap up Costco’s Kirkland Signature house-brand line of goods as well.

Costco knows how to entice its members with monthly deals, so you can expect the warehouse powerhouse to pull out all of the stops with Black Friday sales.

Costco has found ways to navigate the supply chain meltdown that’s foreshadowing empty store shelves on some of the most popular toys and other items this holiday season. Instead of relying on others and hitching a ride on other container ships cramming ports waiting to be unloaded, Costco leased its own small fleet of ships to bring goods to its outlets. We’ll see if that curtails out-of-stocks this holiday season, a situation that could be dire for many retailers and shoppers.

And Costco’s shelves seemed to be well stocked so far this holiday season ahead of Black Friday. That bounty is sure to lure shoppers into buying Costco’s fine line of Kirkland Signature store-brand products that promise value for shoppers and higher margins for Costco (note that pandemic-level caps on how many items shoppers can buy of a particular SKU are back in force, Kirkland Signature’s brand of toilet paper included. There’s a per-visit limit of one 30-pack per customer). 

Still, “Costco offers some of the best holiday deals, but there’s a catch — you’ll need to become a member to get them, a minimum $60 investment,” says Nathan Burrow of The New York TimesWirecutter. “If you have a Costco nearby you think you’ll patronize regularly, a membership is worth it and the Black Friday deals are often excellent.”

Here’s a sampling of Costco’s Black Friday deals for 2021:
