Best Deals on Apple Products at Costco

Apple Products at Costco

Updated: October 16, 2021

Costco offers members remarkable savings on a variety of products. This article covers the best deals on Apple products at Costco.

From its humble beginnings with just one warehouse in 1983, Costco now operates over 700 locations across the world. Early Costco customers remember a store where everything came in mass quantities. Minimalistic warehouse shelves were stocked with ridiculously large tubs of mayonnaise and other bulk products. In the beginning, Costco was really only appropriate for large families. They specialized in selling institutionally sized groceries.

Times have changed. Although you can still find some relics of Costco’s past, they’ve figured out that most people don’t want a 5 gallon tub of mayo. Instead, they bundle multiple smaller units of groceries in one package. They also carry clothing, books, videos, TVs, computers, tires and almost everything under the sun, including select Apple products. Costco shoppers can find tremendous savings on the Macintosh, iPhone, iPad, iPod and Apple TV. You can even order these items online and have them delivered to your door.

Apple products are significantly discounted at Costco. You may be able to find a better deal if you search around, but it’s unlikely. The only disadvantage is that there isn’t a lot of choice. For example, if you buy an iPad, it usually only comes in one color. For most people, this isn’t a problem.

You also need a membership to shop at Costco. A normal membership costs $60. Executive memberships are offered at $120. The Executive membership offers additional perks. Executive card holders are allowed to enter the store one hour before regular members. They also get 2% back on purchases. I buy 90% of my groceries at Costco, so the Executive membership is well worth it.

If you can’t afford a membership, there is a workaround. Costco cash cards can be used by non-members at any store. There’s a bit of a catch-22. Only members can buy the cash cards.

It’s essential to act fast if you find a great deal. Costco is notorious for offering products for a limited time. At the time of this writing, Costco no longer carries the fourth generation Apple TV. I was able to buy one a month after it launched, for a discounted price.

The links go to individual item pages, however, there may be different color options for a particular model. Make sure to check for any item variations, such as color, by searching for the item on Costco’s website.

Apple is known to release products on an almost predictable schedule. This means that there are bad times to buy specific Apple products. For example, Costco is still selling the iPad Air 2, even though the 2017 iPad is better in many respects and cheaper. You also don’t want to buy a new Apple device a few months before the next model launches. Make sure to read “Best Time to Buy Apple Products” before you make any purchase.

Costco finally started selling Macs, however, one can find better deals elsewhere. All Macs come with an AppleCare+ option starting at $150.

Costco lists MacBooks individually, even if they only differ by color. Duplicates have been eliminated to keep the presentation clean. If color means a lot to you, make sure to search Costco’s site for a desirable color. Sometimes they only offer a product in one color.

  1. I requested information and pricing on Apple I Phones. This page is all about other krud that is not relevant. CONGRATULATIONS !!

    1. Sorry for the confusion. This page is about the best deals on Apple products at Costco. It’s not about iPhone pricing, and was never intended to be.

      Unless you’re looking for a used iPhone, there really aren’t a lot of deals on Apple’s smartphones. Perhaps some carriers have special arrangements, but typically, the prices don’t budge from MSRP. With a semiconductor shortage, it’s unlikely a new iPhone will sell below MSRP without some strings attached (cellular contract).

    2. I went through Membership Wireless and listed the price for every iPhone model and carrier.

      I’m not quite sure how prices on Macintoshes, iPads and other devices aren’t relevant. Apple makes many other products than the iPhone.
