Costco Black Friday 2018 deals: $800 Surface Pro bundle, $250 iPad and more


Costco was one of the first big retailers to reveal its Black Friday sales, and now that many of its competitors have joined the mix, it’s worth revisiting. The retailer is currently advertising deals on its website now that it says are valid through Nov. 26. And those have been joined by some additional great deals that became available as of Nov. 16.

While Apple’s entry-level iPad for $250 is a deal that’s pretty much everywhere, the tempting Surface Pro 6 bundle that includes the keyboard and Surface Pen for $800 is one of the best we’ve seen. (It’s a Core i5, not the weaker Core m3 that Best Buy was selling earlier.)

Of course, Costco’s Black Friday promotions are available only to members; annual plans are available for $60 to $120. As usual, the company’s deals cover a broad range of categories including TVs, tablets, laptops, headphones, gaming consoles and wearables from top brands like Apple, Dell, Bose and Google. 

Like many retailers, Costco will close its doors on the Wednesday evening before Thanksgiving Day and reopen at 9 a.m. local time on Black Friday. Most of Costco’s deals will be available both in stores and online — though some will be exclusively online.

As always, remember the caveats: 

  • Techhnews may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.
  • Some Costco’s deals are already live, and others will start in the coming days. Deals continue through Nov. 26 or until supplies last. 
  • We linked to the current listing at the retailer’s website when one was available, but sale pricing won’t be available until the respective sales begin.

Buried deep in Costco’s extended Black Friday circular is a gem of a bundle: a new Surface Pro 6 with Intel Core i5, Surface Pen and Surface Type Cover for $800. Typically, the complete set would cost more than $1,100, though at time of publication it’s $1,000 at Costco.

Costco’s deal starts Nov. 16.

Google Home Mini (3 pack) for $70 ($30 off)

Surprisingly good audio in a colorful, compact and tasteful package. Plus all of the smarts of Google’s Assistant. Especially if you’ve got an Android phone, this is your smart speaker. We’re seeing this at Walmart and Target for $25 apiece, so this represents a $5 discount if you’re buying three.

This Bose on-ear wireless model is an old favorite of ours. And our one major complaint — the high price — is dramatically mitigated by Costco’s Black Friday promotion.
