BJ's Wholesale Black Friday ad features $33.33 Amazon Fire tablet deal

The warehouse chain also has a sale on a pair of Microsoft Surface products and a 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A special.


Like Sam's Club, BJ's Wholesale concentrates its Black Friday PC deals largely on HP laptops and desktops.

Two of the three major warehouse retailers have had their Black Friday ad leaks in the last couple of days: First Sam's Club and now BJ's Wholesale club (Costco remains a holdout.) Like its Walmart-owned competitor, BJ's has no Apple iPad deals listed, but does have a couple of different tablet deals, despite the device's fall from trendiness.

In a special that's not only reminiscent's of last year, but also likely to be repeated widely, BJ's has Amazon's Fire 7-inch tablet on sale for just $33.33, or a little more than $15 off the normal price. Expect to see it priced similarly elsewhere, including on itself. Sam's Club has a 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab A deal in its ad, but BJ's is going smaller (and cheaper) with a 7-inch model of the same Android tablet that's $89.99 (or $50 cheaper than BJ's current price) and includes a 16GB microSD card.

BJ's is also touting a couple of specials on Microsoft Surface devices, but be aware that one of these deals is available today if you are a member of the warehouse club (despite the ad saying the prices are exclusive to the November 20 to November 28 time period). The Surface Pro 4 tablet with Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of solid-state storage is on sale for $749.99, or $250 less than what Microsoft's store is currently selling it for. (But what BJ's is selling it for now.) BJ's also has the Surface Book 2-in-1 laptop (previous generation with Core i5, 8 gigs of RAM, 128GB of storage) for $1,299.99, or $250 off the price BJ's sells it for today.

Like Sam's Club, BJ's PC deals are skewed heavily towards HP, though it does have a couple of Lenovo models in the mix unlike its competitor. The three HP laptops specials are comprised of: the 15-ay071nr with Core i3-5005U processor, 8GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive, and 15.6-inch screen ($349.99 or $150 off current price); the more powerful 15-ay068nr (Core i7-6500U, other key specs the same as the 15-ay071nr) for $499.99 (also $150 off); and the still more powerful Envy with Core i7-7500U chip, 12GB of RAM, terabyte hard drive, and full HD 15.6-inch display ($699.99 or $200 less than current price).

Rounding things out are a pair of Lenovo notebooks and an actual gaming desktop. As with the Surface Pro 4, the Lenovo Z41-70 laptop already has the same price that BJ's is touting for Black Friday. The $499.99 portable includes a Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive, and 14-inch full HD display.

The Flex 3 2-in-1, on the other hand, is $120 cheaper than the regular price of $549.99 for November 18 through November 28 time period. It comes with a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and a 14-inch full HD touchscreen that possesses 360 degrees of rotation.

At $979,99, the CyberPower Gamer Xtreme desktop is $220 less than the current price and features a Core i7 processor, 16 gigs of RAM, a 1TB hard drive and a 120GB SSD, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card.
