Costco might not be the first place you go to grab video games, but it is one of the only places you can get an Xbox One and a surprisingly generous free meatball sample. And as regular shoppers know, it’s one of the first places you should look for all sorts of deals so long as you have a membership. The Black Friday deals just leaked, and so we’ve got a full look at their ad courtesy of BestBlackFriday.com. Let’s see what’s on offer for the gamers out there.

Costco is primarily focusing on Xbox One S and X this year, so people looking for PS4s or Switches should go elsewhere. Still, it’s got some interesting bundles with Microsoft’s console this year.
- $70 off Xbox One X Forza Horizon 4 bundle with 3-month game pass. The ad doesn’t list the actual price, but if I were to buy these items at full price right now it would cost about $525, so we assume this is somewhere in the vicinity of $455. Not a shockingly great deal, but Forza Horizon 4 is a must-own for racing fans, and makes excellent use of the X.
- $100 off Xbox One S Minecraft bundle with 3-month game pass. A little bit of a better deal, both because of the higher discount and the fact that it represents a higher percentage of the lower price. These would cost $325 if I bought them at full price right now, so expect this to be somewhere around $255. There will likely be cheaper bundles than this.
- $70 off of Xbox One S 1 tb with an extra controller with FIFA 19, Madden 19 and 3-month game pass. This one is interesting: I’m not sure that there’s giant overlap between the primarily American Madden fanbase and the primarily European FIFA fanbase, but sports fans will be fans of this. Hard to know what the baseline price they’re calculating this off of, but full price right now would likely be something like Something like $479, so the bundle is theoretically something like $409. If that’s actually the price, you can likely do better elsewhere.
Aside from that, we’ve got a 32″ Freesync monitor for $399.99, which isn’t terrible. All in all I’m not quite calling Costco a Black Friday gaming destination, but not a terrible place to grab an Xbox One X or S if it’s got the right bundle for you.
