Update, Dec. 1: Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020 are officially done and dusted. If you would still like to find business tech deals or the best products to buy, check out our ZDNet Recommends directory.
The trend of retailers moving from Black Friday as a single day of shopping to a month-long state of mind continues as BJ’s Wholesale Club announces its deals, which will begin on Nov. 5 and go all the way through Cyber Monday on Nov. 30 (though most discounts will be available between Nov. 20 and Nov. 30). Among the variety of products on sale at the warehouse chain are a number of computing devices to entice members shopping for a new laptop, desktop, or tablet.
For those who are members — or are considering joining BJ’s — here are the PC deals that may make that membership worth the price.

Starting on Nov. 5, you can save a nice chunk of change off the current price on Lenovo’s midrange IdeaPad 5, which features an Intel Core i5-1035G1 quad-core processor, a hefty 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB solid state drive. Throw in a built-in fingerprint reader and 15.6-inch full HD touchscreen and you have a solid system for under $600.
If you’re looking for a deal on Samsung’s latest and greatest Android tablet, BJ’s has you covered with this $100 discount on the Tab S7, the first tablet available in the US that supports 5G connectivity. It comes with an11-inch 2,560×1,600 display, 6GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, fingerprint lock key, and Samsung’s well-regarded S Pen, and BJ’s price includes a bonus keyboard with expanded trackpad.
You don’t necessarily think “gaming laptop” when you’re in a giant warehouse filled with jumbo-sized cereal boxes and bulk quantities of paper towels, but BJ’s has managed to squeeze in a nice sale on the Nitro 5 as part of its Black Friday deals. It most importantly features the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card to power your gaming, but the Acer gaming notebook also includes a Core i5-9300H CPU, 8GB of memory, a speedy 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD, and a 15.6-inch full HD display.
The discount might not seem eye-popping, but when the original price is low to begin with, you wind up saving 15 percent on this budget laptop. For basic computing tasks the HP 14-fq0057nr is a nice Windows 10 alternative to a Chromebook, with an AMD Athlon 3050U processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, and a 14-inch HD touchscreen.
