Has anyone seen any good deals? Michael’s was a bust and Home Depot’s looked like toilet bowl brushes. Looking to see if there is an exceptional deal I am missing?

I had gotten an online only tree from Home Depot years ago and it was gorgeous. Paid $150 and it lasted 6 years. Last year we got a new one from Hick's. Beautiful but definitely not a deal.

BJS has a nice one! You can set it on clear lights or multi lights. Looks nice and full. I think costco has the same one

I got an exceptional, stunning tree from Home Depot. It looks so real, very branchy and natural. It was over $400 though so not the best deal but it's worth every penny. I love that it's covered in LED micro lights, you cannot see any wire or even the bulbs so if the lights all die one day, the tree will still be usable.

This is the one I got, it's really gorgeous in person and decorated.

Sure!! It really does has a ton of lights, this is the first time I've ever had a pre-lit that didn't require me to add tons more lights. I only did one string of 300 twinkling lights only because I love the sparkle. Chat Icon

Looks beautiful Hofstra!!!

I got ours at Fortunoff the week before Christmas last year. Wasn't cheap but it's beautiful!!!

If you can wait, they also go on sale after the holidays.

Costco had one that I wanted but they sold out of it quickly.

Re: Deals on NICE Artificial trees?

We just got our first ever artificial tree (so sad we can’t do real this year) at Lowe’s. They have some pretty good Black Friday deals going on and I was very picky after having a real tree for the first 39 Christmases of my life!

That's gorgeous. I love a tree that looks real in terms of the branches, etc. but is more perfectly shaped like that.
I can't stand real trees because they never look perfect- they always look like they are shaped like a Hershey kiss or something, or very bushy.
I am so anal about symmetry.
LOL

Thanks so much! Chat Icon I am the same way, I like for my tree to have a cute, symmetrical shape but look natural. I am madly in love with this tree. haha

Another nice aspect of this tree is that every branch is covered in a muted brown, rough textured rubber resembling an actual tree branch. Even up close the tree looks SO real. No ugly metal poles anywhere.

Clearly, I highly recommend it! Chat Icon Chat Icon

Re: Deals on NICE Artificial trees?

I have the hardest time looking at artificial trees in the stores without fluffing them all up. Chat Icon Years of growing up with a perfectionist of a mom - now I find myself doing the same to my son.

Our most recent tree I think we bought at Home Depot. I needed a specific size due to a small living room and low ceilings. I loved that tree so much that when the lights went I just cut them off and put lights on myself each year. We have since moved and the tree would be too small in our new place, so I'm using my older one and I think that one was from Frank's.... does that place still exist?

LOL no it doesn't- but that is where ours is from and it's not even pre lit- we got it like 17 years ago, prelit wasn't even a thing back then.
But I can't part with it because I love the size and shape and how real it looks

Same with ours... Chat Icon
The year my mom wrote on the tree was 1998 - 20 years later I'm bringing it back to life. I wonder if it is the same tree!

I swear - as convenient as prelit trees are in the first few years they become a real PITA once the lights start going out.

So I ended up at Lowes today and got a nice one and it was 25% off. It's a GE Hampton one, looks pretty real, and has 1500 LED. I almost went with the one Hofstra posted above, but I had to walk away from it because it was just a little too expensive (I love that one though!)

I remember having to do that growing up!!!

The new ones are 3 sections! I put section one in the stand, plugged it in. Put the next section in, that section lighted instantly, and same for the top section. Literally up in like 2 minutes, and I didn't even have to fluff the branches really at all!!
