Wow! Christmas trees are pricey!

I haven't bought a new tree for a long time. They have really gotten pricey.

Re: Wow! Christmas trees are pricey!

I was a bit surprised, they're not as expensive here in our big box home stores. I wanted to replace mine this year but the prices here plus the shipping will cause me to skip the Q for a tree. The ones I've looked at online all seem to have so-so reviews of lights not working after a short while. It's convenient to have them shipped but the costs plus the shipping costs have convinced me to shop locally for one.

I bought a Christmas tree from QVC back in the 90's. It held up well 

My cousin bought one from QVC, and after the first year, the lights stopped working. 

 

If I wanted to pay that much money for a tree, I'd buy it locally.

Re: Wow! Christmas trees are pricey!

We are also considering a new Christmas tree this year, but I plan to buy locally.  If there is an issue, it will be much easier to take it back to the store for an exchange, rather than stuffing it back in a box to send it back to QVC. 
I never purchase big, bulky, heavy items online.  I always factor ease of exchange or return in my purchase decision.

Yes they are. WalMart has beautiful trees.

Also no shipping charges.. The shipping charges for the QVC trees are unbelievable.

If you can wait trees are always half price after Xmas.  More reasonable then.  That's what we did several years ago from Hobby Lobby and the tree still looks new.

We only have real trees in our home and a 7ft tree is typically $85+++

I saw on the Today Show this morning that the price of Christmas trees, both real and fake, were going up an average of 20% this year.

Everything is pricey, check out the clothing.
