Costco, the warehouse club, is another prime example on how having a “member’s only” attitude does reap rewards for all those who walk through their doors for some shopping. Being a warehouse club, things in there tend to be purchased and subsequently, sold in bulk: which is why they are able to offer such competitive prices compared to your regular grocery store or supermarket. However, when it comes to events like Black Friday, there are better than normal deals to look out for -- and it seems that there are more than just a bunch of markdowns that will keep its members happy.
Do take note that Costco is offering the dollar discount on selected items. The final prices on the products happen to be determined by individual Costco stores, where some have been earmarked especially for online transactions, so those of you out there who want to stretch your dollar to the maximum will have to do some running around and legwork in order to figure out whether that is the best possible deal for the moment. It would be advisable to take into account the time-cost opportunity if you’re going around too though.
Online exclusive, store-only and physical store deals
The online-only sale items will kick off from the start of Thanksgiving all the way through to Cyber Monday, November 27. It would be important to take down the operating times of physical stores -- they are closed on Thanksgiving and will only open at 9 a.m. on Black Friday. As for store-only deals, those happen to be are available from Friday all the way through to Monday. You will be able to obtain a list on which particular retailer will be open and close on Thanksgiving Day here so that you do not waste your time. Without further ado, here are some of the interesting deals that might pique your curiosity.
