Lidl is selling Christmas trees for the first time at a bargain price of £16.99.
What’s the deal exactly?
Lidl is selling Nordmann fir Christmas trees for £16.99 in a pot and £19.99 for a freshly cut one.
They are ideal for family decorating and both trees have strong but soft needles which Lidl says will help save on the hoovering too.
The trees are between five to six feet tall and are grown sustainably in the Scottish Highlands.
Customers can even track their tree online to find out exactly where it was grown.
Why should I care?
While Christmas is the “most wonderful time of the year” as the song goes, it can also be the most expensive, so any savings that you make will be helpful.
What’s the catch?
The trees are only available while stocks last so you will have to get in quick if you want one.
Just because a retailer is offering a discount, it doesn’t mean that a similar product is available elsewhere for less. So, always compare prices online and in-store first if possible.
What other options do I have?
When you buy a £25 tree at IKEA you will get back a £20 voucher to spend in-store, cutting the overall cost to £5.
If you are after a real Christmas tree your local garden centre is always a good place to start.
B&Q is selling one for £12 while at Homebase prices start at £15.
If you are looking to make savings in the long term you might want to consider an artificial tree.
Argos currently has a six feet tall Christmas tree with 25% off at £15.
Marks and Spencer also has a six feet tree for £35 that comes with baubles and lights.
