Update 11/25/23: Black Friday may be in the rearview mirror, but there are still plenty of deals to be had, including the Bose QuietComfort 45 SE headphones that I bought for their lowest price ever from Costco at $180. If you're not a Costco member you can pick them up at their second lowest price of $199 at Amazon.
Black Friday 2023 is TODAY, on Nov. 24, 2023, and we’re already seeing some fiery deals on the top products from laptops to phones. Now, I have been on the hunt for the best Bose QuietComfort 45 SE noise-cancelling headphones deal for my wife because, according to RTings.com, they're the best headphones to use for travel and moving around.
Naturally, I've been eyeing up the Bose QuietComfort 45 SE's Amazon entry, selling for $199. It's $100+ off, but that's still a little pricey for me.
Then, I just so happened upon this awesome Bose QuietComfort 45 SE Costco deal for $180, which is the lowest price it's ever been. This is only applicable to those that have a Costco membership — since I do, this deal reached perfection.
