This holiday season, sales are set to reach $1.1 trillion, according to a survey by Deloitte, and the typical shopper expects to spend more than $1,000 on gifts and other seasonal purchases, according to the National Retail Federation.
While some major retailers are offering the same Black Friday deals as they did last year, Costco, for the most part, is not, according to data from WalletHub. Only 2.4% of the store's Black Friday offerings this year are the same as last year. This means they'll have more new deals than Target, Best Buy, and direct competitors like BJ's.
Here are some of the best deals Costco and its warehouse club competitors are offering this year.
Flatscreen TVs are a Black Friday door-buster tradition, and this year is no different, says Kristin McGrath, shopping expert at Offers.com. At Costco, you can get a Samsung 58" 6 Series 4K for $379 or an LG 55" Class 7 Series 4K for $349.
Black Friday will be the best day to get discounts on appliances like washer and dryer sets, according to data from Adobe Communications, which predicts that appliances will be offered at an average discount of 9%. At Costco, for example, a Samsung top load washer and dryer set is $800 off. Other retailers note a list price of about $2,200 for the set, meaning you'll save almost 40%.
For smaller kitchen appliances, Costco offers discounts on items like a Cuisinart food processor, listed at $99.99, a 33% reduction from its original price. Sam's Club also has some good deals on smaller appliances like its Ninja Professional blender for $66.98, a 30% discount from it original price of $99.98.
If you're in the market for Apple accessories, however, some other big box retailers may be better. Walmart will have deals on Beats (a subsidiary of Apple), including Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones for $100 off, bringing the price from $299.99 to $199.99. An iPad at Best Buy will be $80 to $100 less than their regular retail price, depending on the model.
At Target, an Apple Watch Series 3 will be discounted from $199.99 to $169.99, and AirPods with a charging case will be marked down from $199.99 to $144.99.

On Black Friday, many retailers offer gift cards with your smartphone purchase. For example, a Samsung Galaxy 10 at Costco comes with a $420 gift card.
You can find similar deals at big box retailers, too. At Target's Black Friday sales, for example, an iPhone 11 comes with a $200 gift card and a Samsung Galaxy comes with a $400 gift card.
"You'll see some of the best pricing of the year on the PS4, Xbox One S, Xbox One X, and, hopefully this year, the Nintendo Switch," McGrath says. An Xbox One X with two controls will be $100 off at Costco.
Similar discounts will be given at other retailers, as well. For example, at Target, an Xbox One X bundle including a game and one controller will be discounted from $499.99 to $349.99 and select Xbox One controllers will be discounted from $59.99 to $39.99.
