More Black Friday ads are being released every week, and we're rounding up the top picks from each to make your shopping list creation even easier!

Costco just released its ad for Black Friday and while it's only 8 pages long, there's a variety of items to choose from. Doors will open at 9 am local time on Black Friday. While local ads contain pricing information, the wide release of its ad only has the size of the discounts. We've highlighted our best picks and the prices we expect for them, but be aware that actual prices might vary by ZIP code.

Check out the full Costco Black Friday ad, and our top picks below. Then, don't forget to check out all our predictions for the big day so you know exactly what to expect.

Top 5 Deals From the Costco Black Friday Ad

  • HP Omen 32" QHD Gaming Monitor for $100 off
    While we didn't make any predictions about monitors, there's no denying that we expect this one to be around $300, which is the lowest price we've seen. We've only seen one other deal on this monitor and it was around $344 then; plus, it's currently around $350 or more at other retailers. This deal is available online only.

    Should You Buy It? This monitor was just released back in August, so being able to snag it at this discount is definitely a plus.

  • Xbox One S 500GB Minecraft Bundle for $50 off
    Assuming that this will cost $240 (and that is a big assumption), this is the lowest price ever for this bundle, beating out other retailers we've seen so far. The next best price we've seen is $249.99, and while that one is eligible for Kohl's Cash, this is still the outright best price. We're expecting to see this bundle for $300 including a gift card for at least $100, but if you'd prefer a straight-up price reduction, this is your best bet.

    Should You Buy It? We could still see a bundle like this with a gift card, but unless it's a significant one and you have plans for it, there's no reason not to take advantage of this super low price.

  • Acer 14" 1080p IPS Chromebook Bundle for $65 off
    We predicted that Chromebooks would drop as low as $95, and while this particular one isn't that low, it's still the best deal we've seen for this model. This particular Chromebook has only dropped as low as $269 at other retailers, and those deals didn't include anything bundled with it. We're expecting this deal, which is bundled with an Acer wireless mouse, to be around $230. It's available online only.

    Should You Buy It? If you've been contemplating a Chromebook, this is a highly-rated model at an affordable price tag.

  • Unlocked Motorola Moto G 4th Gen 32GB Smartphone for $55 off
    We expect this phone to be around $175 at Costco, which doesn't meet our predictions. However, it's also eligible for a $75 mail-in rebate Costco Cash Card and 5,200 mAh portable battery when you activate the phone by December 31 at a Costco Wireless Center on a new line of service. Assuming you'll use the cash card, it's effectively at the exact price we predicted. Both of these deals are available in-club only.

    Should You Buy It? Even without the rebate, it's still the lowest price we've seen. But there's also a chance we'll see it hit our predicted price elsewhere, so if you aren't planning to use the cash card, be sure to check other retailers.

  • Dyson Ball Complete Upright Vacuum for $160 off
    We didn't make any predictions about Dyson vacuums, but if this discount drops this model to $290 like we expect it to, it'll be the lowest price on this model we've seen. The next lowest price we've seen for this one is around $180, but it was for a refurbished model.

    Should You Buy It? If you've been eyeing a Dyson vacuum, this discount should make it much more affordable than it has been.
