Best Costco Black Friday Deals From 2013
For members, the wholesale warehouse Costco offers great deals on everything from food to office supplies to electronics. Known for its impressive discount for shoppers buying in bulk, the retailer is less well-known as a great destination for Black Friday sales, but it featured a number of impressive bargains on tablets, PCs and other electronics during the shopping holiday last year.
The store offered sales from Nov. 29 through Dec. 1, with doors opening at 9 a.m. Friday.
Among its best in-store discounts on consumer electronics:
- $100 off the Samsung 10.1″ Galaxy Tab 3
- $200 off the HP Envy Touchsmart 15.6″ Laptop with Beats Audio
- $105 off the Samsung 2.1 Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer
Costco reserved some deals for online shoppers only, including a $99.99 Dell Venue 8-inch tablet alongside purchases of a PC for $599.99 or more.
Photographers looking for a new camera could snap up the following deals:
- Panasonic ZS25 20x Digital Camera: $179.99 (regularly $249.99)
- Nikon P520 Long Zoom Camera: $299.99 (regularly $449.99)
Costco also took a leaf out of Bed Bath & Beyond’s book, offering $100 off the Dyson DC50 Multi-Floor Plus Bagless Vacuum. The discount was a great find for households in need of a quality vacuum cleaner, but for shoppers interested in a different model from Dyson, Bed Bath & Beyond featured a greater selection of the brand-name vacuums.
Other notable deals included the following household items:
- Saeco Xsmall Automatic Espresso Machine: $249.99 (regularly $349.99)
- Smarter Tools 3,000W Running/3,500W Peak Portable Generator with Electric Start and Battery: $299.99 (regularly $399.99)

To take advantage of Costco’s great deals this year, make sure to sign up for Costco membership, or get a friend or family member to take you shopping if membership fees are too steep for you.
If you’re looking for stores with similar deals, consider Best Buy, Dell and Walmart for computers, tablets and cameras. Bed Bath & Beyond is a great choice for vacuum cleaners, and visit Ace Hardware, Lowe’s and Home Depot to find discounts on tools.
