Top 5 Deals From the BJ's Wholesale Club Black Friday Ad

  • Apple iPad Pro 9.7" 128GB in Silver for $589.99
    This high-productivity iPad is a relatively new release, so we predicted that the base version might get a discount of $50; however, this model at this price exceeds our expectations. It's set to be the lowest price we've ever seen. The next best price we've seen is $630, and that was back in June. This doorbuster is available in-club only on Black Friday.

    Should You Buy It? This deal goes beyond our expectations, so we think it's unlikely the deals will get better than this on Black Friday.

  • Sharp 50" 1080p LED HDTV for $249.99
    In our TV predictions, we noted that 50" off-brand sets would on average be somewhere around $259, and while Sharp might sound familiar to you, the brand is probably more akin to lower-tier models. That said, this Sharp TV not only beats out our predictions, but is also currently the lowest price we've seen for any Sharp TV with these specs. Models like this have gone for at least $100 more this year. This deal is available in-club only on Black Friday.

    Should You Buy It? While this beats our prediction for the average price of a 50" off-brand TV, we're still expecting a doorbuster to hit $215. So this is a solid pick, but keep your eyes open for a better offer.

  • Swagtron T1 Hoverboard for $299.99
    Hoverboards are starting to hit the market again, and although we didn't make any predictions about them, this price does seem to be below what anyone else is charging at the moment. Most retailers charge at least $50 to $100 more. This particular doorbuster is another that's available in-club only on Black Friday.

    Should You Buy It? Since these toys now have to meet all kinds of new safety qualifications, we expect hoverboards to be back with a vengeance this holiday season. Public hesitation might yield discounts at more stores than just BJ's, but we'd wager prices won't go much lower.

  • ProScan 39" 720p LED HDTV for $139.99
    We predicted 32" 720p sets would on average cost around $140, but this set is gives you slightly more real estate for that price. This budget TV is $10 cheaper than similar models we saw back in April. It's available in-club only on Black Friday.

    Should You Buy It? Smaller TVs can't get much cheaper than this, so it's pretty safe to say you won't miss out on better deals if you snag it.

  • Samsung 65" 4K UHD LED Smart HDTV for $899.99
    We predicted name-brand sets like this would cost on average just over $1,000, and this set beats those predictions by $100. Plus, it's $400 cheaper than what this model has sold for throughout the year. This deal can be found both in-club and online, from November 18 through November 28.

    Should You Buy It? Shoppers who want a reliable big screen, Smart TV experience are in good hands with this Samsung deal.
