Costco Best Apple TV Deals
Amazon has a slightly lower price on the Apple TV 4K right now, but discounts on this product are limited so both deals are worth flagging:

Costco Best TV Live Deals
Where Costco can match (and beat) most rival retailers right now is TVs. The store has a wide-range of deals at multiple price points and these are the savings which really caught my eye:

Costco Best Console Deals
Easily Costco’s weakest area, the store has very limited console deals and you can beat its sales elsewhere. I’ve linked to my Xbox, PS4 and Switch guides to give you a wider range of options.
Costco console deals are not as numerous as at rivals, but there are still solid deals
- 01/18 – PlayStation 4 Slim 1TB Console – Only On PlayStation Bundle – typically $299 (save $44) – Costco: $299.99 (members only) / Amazon: $249.99 / Best Buy: $249.99
