BJ’s Wholesale Club is best known as a chain of East Coast warehouses and, like its competitors Costco and Sam’s Club, sells a wide variety of products, not just giant boxes of cereal and giant reams of paper towels. So when it participates in Black Friday sales, it offers discounts on HDTVs and laptops like other retailers. If you’re a member and looking for deals at a BJ’s Wholesale Club this Black Friday, here are a number of discounts that may make you want to steer clear of the dry goods aisles. .
BJ’s contribution to the cheap Chromebook Black Friday deal is this Acer model, which offers the usual base specs like an Intel Celeron N4000 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. An 11.6-inch LED-backlit IPS display and a pair of USB Type-C 3.1 ports are nice touches for the bargain price.
HP’s Pavilion x360 is a respected 2-in-1 laptop family, and this configuration is based around a 15.6-inch Full HD touchscreen.
