Costco has killer Galaxy S10, Note 10+, and Surface Pro 7 deals in store for Black Friday

Costco has killer Galaxy S10, Note 10+, and Surface Pro 7 deals in store for Black Friday
UPDATE:Bargain hunters feeling impatient about saving the big bucks on some of the most popular high-end handsets out there should be happy to hear one of Costco's best Black Friday deals is scheduled to kick off early after all. According to an official update on the warehouse club's website, that massive $420 discount on Samsung's Verizon-specific Galaxy S10, S10+, and Note 10+ will actually be available between November 22 and December 2 rather than just November 28 and 29.

After taking the price cut into consideration, you're looking at spending a measly $430 for the "regular-sized" GS10, $530 for the jumbo-sized S10 Plus, and $630 instead of a whopping $1,050 for the hot new Galaxy Note 10+. Just keep in mind you'll need to agree to a two-year device payment plan, but on the bright side, Costco isn't saying anything about having to open a new line of service or adding one to an existing account, so upgrading Big Red customers could also qualify for this excellent extended Black Friday offer. Original story follows below.


Mere hours after Lenovo got the Black Friday 2019 ball rolling, Costco is following suit with its own lengthy list of holiday savings, some of which will be available starting several weeks before Thanksgiving. While the warehouse club chain is not technically behind the release of this extensive Black Friday and Cyber Monday flyer, its authenticity is beyond the shadow of a doubt, meaning you can already begin putting together your shopping lists.

Unsurprisingly, the best mobile deals are scheduled to kick off on November 28 online and November 29 in physical warehouses, letting you save a whopping $420 on your choice of Samsung's best high-end smartphones of 2019. The massive discount will be offered towards Galaxy S10, S10+, and Note 10+ installment plans for Verizon activations, while AT&T and Sprint customers can score $420 Costco shop cards by agreeing to pay regular monthly installments for the same flagship devices.

While nowhere near as drastic, a $50 price cut will bring the recently released Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 down to $220 and $240 in 40 and 44mm sizes respectively, with the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and Tab A 10.1 slates set to be reduced to $110 and $200 respectively. The former Android tablet will also be bundled with a complimentary 32GB microSD card, whereas productivity enthusiasts have a pair of killer Surface Pro 7 bundle deals to look forward to.

That's right, Microsoft's newest 2-in-1 detachable with Windows 10 and 10th Generation Intel Core processing power is looking at an up to $300 markdown already. Starting November 22, you'll be able to get the Core i7 configuration alongside a Type Cover keyboard and Surface Pen at $1,300 instead of a standard combined price of $1,600. That's an online-only promotion, mind you, unlike the $200 discount that will bring the price of a Core i5 variant down to a very reasonable $800 when sold together with a keyboard and stylus. 

A Surface Go combo containing an Intel Pentium-powered tablet and a Type Cover of its own will cost 400 bucks after a $100 cut, while smartwatch fans should be happy to hear the Fitbit Versa 2 has a $50 discount in the pipeline that's slated to go live both on and offline a whole week before Thanksgiving Day. 

Naturally, many other deals on popular headphones, wearable devices, laptops, TVs, and gaming consoles are coming, so before deciding how much to spend on handsets, tablets, and smartwatches this holiday season, you might want to take a little time and examine Costco's Black Friday 2019 ad in its entirety.
