Costco Black Friday 2021 Sale – What to Expect

We’ve still got a long ways to go until Costco’s Black Friday sale arrives again but you can scroll down the page to view last year’s details to get a general idea of the type of offers they typically run (you can expect to see similar deals return).

As always, we’ll be posting a copy of their ad, sale start/end dates and all the important details for 2021 the moment we know more. Be sure to check back again soon for the latest updates or join our newsletter to stay informed.


Black Friday 2021 Start & End Dates

While Costco’s main Black Friday sale typically runs from Thanksgiving day through Cyber Monday, we are expecting them to once again run deals nearly all month long in November. Based on last year’s dates, here’s the sales schedule that you can expect to see this year at Costco:

  • Expected early season sale: November 4-18, 2021 both online and at warehouse stores.
  • Expected early Black Friday deals: November 19-29, 2021 both online and at warehouse stores.
  • Expected Black Friday kick off: Thursday November 25, 2021 (that’s on Thanksgiving day). These deals are available online-only. All stores nationwide are closed for the entire day in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.
  • Expected Black Friday main event: Friday-Monday, November 25-29, 2021 or while supplies last.
  • Expected Cyber Monday sale: Monday November 29, 2021 or while supplies last. These deals are available online-only.

It’s just worth mentioning that actual store hours may again vary this year by location due to the still ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. That’s why if you plan on shopping in-person then be sure to check with your nearest store prior to leaving your house to see when they will open and close on Black Friday and over the long weekend.


Our Favorite Deals for 2021

While Costco usually has 30+ pages of deals in their Black Friday ad, there’s only a handful of specials that get us really excited. Most of them center around electronics… not only because of the sale prices, but also because of Costco’s famous no-questions-asked return policy, free Costco Concierge 2-year support and extended warranties. Here’s what you should be on the lookout for this year:

  • TVs — While Best Buy, Walmart, Target and just about every big-box store has TVs on sale, Costco typically has the larger and high-end name-brand televisions featured in their Black Friday ad. Our favorite last year were the Vizio 50” MQ7 Series 4K Quantum LED LCD TV on sale for $329.99.
  • Laptops — Regardless of you’re a Mac or PC user, you’ll typically find a good bargain on a new laptop on both ends of the spectrum. In terms of PCs, Costco featured an HP x360 14” 1080p 2-in-1 Chromebook for $299.99 (after $100 off). On the higher end there was the Dell XPS 13” UHD+ Touch Laptop with Intel Core i7 processor on sale for $1599.99 (after 400 off). While not in the ad, we saw that our store also had had specials on the new 13” and 16” Apple Macbook Pros (up to $200 off).
    .
  • Soundbars — What’s better to go with your new TV than a soundbar? Last year Costco had one of our favorites, the Sonos Beam “Shadow Black Edition” on sale for $289.99 ($80.00 off). That was $10 cheaper than the year before. In terms of affordability, the Bose Solo Soundbar Series II with Bluetooth was on sale for $139.99 (after $40.00 off).
  • Food — Black Friday bargains on food might not be something that immediately jumps into mind but maybe it should be. Last year Costco offered $25 off per pack on USD Prime Beef Loin Whole New York Steak, $5.00 off per pack on Kirkland Signature Fresh Boneless & Skinless Chicken Breasts, and $8.00 off per pack on Whole Boneless Pork Loin. They also offered $1.00 off on 12-count artisan bread rolls and $6.00 off on 100-count Keurig K-Cup pods boxes (selected varieties).
  • Jewelry — Some of the best jewelry deals are not always at boutiques such as Zales, Jared or Kay but are the big warehouse stores. The best find last year was a Round Brilliant 1.00 ctw VS2 Clarity G-color 14k White Gold Diamond Band on sale for $799.99 (after $200 off)… a similar quality ring would easily cost you three as much at Tiffany & Co. There was also an engraved 14k Yellow Gold 18” Pendant on sale for $149.99 (after $50.00 off) which made for a great Christmas present for someone special.

  1. Hope to see some good discounts in their jewelry section. Want to buy a pair of earrings for my soon to be 15 year old niece for her birthday.
