Costco Pre-Thanksgiving Ad is not Costco's Black Friday 2015 Ad

Costco released a Pre-Thanksgiving Day ad that has deals valid until end of November, but the Costco Black Friday 2015 Ad is still to come.

The Costco Black Friday sales marketing is less loud and also less clear than the Sam's Club Black Friday sale. Costco so silently released a Pre-Thanksgiving Ad that lists deals valid from November 20 to November 30. Some reports say that this is the Costco Black Friday ad, which it is not. Last year Costco released a Thanksgiving Weekend Ad that was in addition to the Pre-Thanksgiving Ad. 

Last year the Costco Black Friday ad dropped on November 17. Expect this year's ad to be released at the same time. 

Update: The Costco Black Friday 2015 Ad has been released officially today, November 13.

My biggest issue with Costco's advertised deals are that they are lacking a concrete sales price and the model number. The membership Warehouse retailer only states discounts, so called instant savings. This makes comparing deals with other retailers a nightmare. You cannot even find the advertised items based on the item number Costco is listing.

The only way to find the product listing at Costco is to do some smart searching and rely on the crowd. Costco is offering a Samsung 75-inch 4K UHD Smart TV for $1,200 off. To find out if this is a great deal, first I have to find the model number of the advertised Samsung. Costco lists the item number with 9750641. Searching for it on does not lead to any results.

75-inch Samsung 4K UHD TV

The Costco search has though a feature that shows what others have looked at when the searched for 975064. Only the Samsung UN75JU650DFXZA fits the specs of the ad. The UN75JU650DFXZA is listed on wth a online price of $3,779.99 and is on sale for $500 off right now. This would mean starting Nov. 20 the discount increases to $1,200 bringing the price down to $2,579.99.

This deal is beating the current offer on for the UN75JU650 of $3,279.99. Sam's Club has advertised a similar 75-inch Samsung, but with slightly different model number UN75JU641DFXZA. The Samsung UN75JU641DFXZA will be on sale in the Sam's Club Black Friday 2015 sale for $2,398, beating the Costco offer. As the UN75JU641DFXZA is a Sam's Club exclusive, there is no way telling the difference. 

This Costco deal research example above is quite the nightmare isn't it? In the end, the deciding factor for Black Friday shoppers is if they are a Sam's Club member or a Costco member.
