Future Shop or Costco?

Surface 3A friend just bought a Surface Pro 3 at Costco. Not Future Shop.

Costco has less selection, but better prices. Simpler pricing.

One example.

Costco deal on Feb 1, 2015 $1,201.19

Costco – Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Bundle | Office 365 Personal | Intel Core i5 | Windows 8.1 Professional | English Only

– What it includes:

• Surface Pro 3 – Intel® Core™ i5 Processor, 128GB storage2 with 4GB RAM

• Windows 8.1 Pro

• Surface Pen – for the best writing and drawing experience on a tablet

• Surface Pro Type Cover (black) – designed exclusively for Surface Pro 3, the revolutionary click-in keyboard also protects your display

• Office 365 Personal – a 1 year subscription3 to the latest versions of the best-in-class applications that you know and love like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote

The cost to match that at Future shop is $1,240.24. – about $40 more.

Futureshop total

Buying online is much more complicated at Future Shop. In store, Future Shop spends more time upselling you. And confusing you with complicated and seemingly random discounts IF you buy a warranty.

Bottom line: Shop Costco over Future Shop, if you can.
