Christmas Trees Better Business Bureau Reliability Seal

Finding a good quality, artificial Christmas Tree that you'll be proud of for years to come, can be a challenge. Taking the time to drive from store to store, viewing the selection of Christmas trees, and then trying to remember what each store had can be very frustrating. Plus, paying the high markups that occur with traditional stores can be expensive as well.

Buy Your Christmas Tree at Christmas Central Today! However, there is an alternative. Shopping online for Christmas trees allows you to easily browse a store's wide selection, quickly compare prices, immediately place your order. Instead of hauling the Christmas tree to your home from the store, you'll find it delivered straight to your door.

If you're looking for a specific type of Christmas tree - for example, a tall and thin Christmas tree, or a short Christmas tree with multi-colored lights - your chances of finding it online, hassle free, are much greater than trying to shop at stores across town. Retail stores usually stock the Christmas trees that will sell the most - not trees that cater to specific needs.

Before you start your Christmas tree shopping effort, you may want to consider the following important factors in your approach:

    Best Christmas Trees
  • Selection. How wide and vast is the Christmas Tree Selection? A large selection of Christmas Trees will increase your chances of finding the perfect tree to suit your preferences and budget.
  • Return Policy. In the event that your Christmas Tree arrives and is different than you expected, will you be able to return it hassle-free?
  • Cost. How do the prices for Christmas Trees between competitors compare? Are you going to get a great price, or pay a premium?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Christmas Tree stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find that perfect Christmas Tree that will last you for many years to come!

Christmas Central

CHRISTMAS CENTRAL Visit Site

Sample Pricing:

6.5' Down swept Hunter Fir Pre-Lit Artificial Christmas Tree with Clear Lights - regularly $549.99, currently $449.99

TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award Christmas Central has a huge variety of Christmas Trees in stock that will meet the needs of everything from the smallest space to even a large commercial size property. Their wide selection provides you with Artificial Christmas Tree choices not offered from other stores we've reviewed. With thousands of Christmas trees available, you can find just about any size and shape of tree you want - as well as Christmas decorations, Christmas lights, Christmas ornaments, and more.

Christmas Central makes it easy to find the Christmas tree you're looking for. Under the Artificial Christmas Tree tab at the top of the home page, you can choose from a large selection of trees, including:

  • Traditional Trees
  • Pre-lit Trees
  • Unlit Trees
  • Alpine Trees
  • Colorful Christmas Trees
  • Fiber Optic Trees
  • Frosted Trees
  • Potted Trees

The search options don't end there. Once you've selected a tree category, you can further define your search by a number of factors, including:

  • Price
  • Popularity
  • Material
  • Color
  • Brand
  • Light type (Incandescent / LED / None)
  • Light Color
  • Needle Type

If size is important, you can refine your search efforts within the Lit and Unlit sections to quickly narrow down the range of trees that are important to you.

Free ground shipping is offered for orders over $77, otherwise orders have an affordable flat shipping rate of only $7.

One of the features we liked the most about Christmas Central is their return policy. They allow customers a full 30 days to return their Christmas tree purchase in original packaging and new condition. If you opt for a store credit, there is no return shipping charge. However, if you want cash back from your purchase, Christmas Central does charge for shipping. We thought this was a fair trade-off.

In addition to their Christmas trees, another thing we really liked about Christmas Central is their huge selection of Christmas accessories. For example, you can choose from a wide variety of Christmas Tree Stands, Christmas Tree Toppers, Ornaments, Lights, Garland, Wreaths, and even Storage options for your Christmas trees and decorations. They really do seem to be a one-stop shop for your Christmas decorating needs.

Christmas Central has one of, if not the biggest, selection of Christmas Trees available - including some unique and hard-to-find options that will please just about anyone. Their prices are competitive with other companies we reviewed. Their website functionality may not be as savvy as some of the big box online stores, but you can still quickly find what you're looking for. In addition to their huge variety of trees and accessories, we also appreciated their generous 30 day return policy and free shipping. If you're in the market for a new Christmas Tree, Christmas Central is a great place to start. They earn our highest rating.

Christmas Lights Etc

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS ETC Visit Site

Sample Pricing:

6.5 foot Hunter Full Pre-Lit Christmas Tree with white lights - $369.95

Christmas Lights Etc seems to be an excellent option for wholesale and commercial buyers and an average option for the everyday buyer. They have a large selection of Christmas Trees and many other products geared only for those needing for commercial reasons. Some of those products are Christmas Trees up to 100 ft, lighted pole decorations, and large outdoor decorations.

In the About Us section, they list some major TV networks and National newspapers that they have been featured on. Many of the notable customers listed are national brands including Macy's, The Walt Disney Company, Six Flags, Sea World and much more. This would lend us to believe they are a reputable company, used by many large companies to outfit their Christmas needs.

Free shipping is offered on Christmas Trees priced over $95. There are some exclusions, check the website for more information if you find a product you're interested in.

There is a 30-day money back guarantee with a 10% restocking fee. No returns are allowed after Christmas Day, even if it is within the 30-day window. Please check the website for more details as there are stipulations to the return policy.

The biggest complaint that we had about the website was the difficulty in finding the return policy and the customer service information. Most companies reviewed have an easy to find tab or link that will take you to a page answering many customer service questions. There is no such link from the main page of this website. We even tried chatting live with a customer service representative, to have our questions answered, and even though it said someone was online, after a few minutes of waiting for an answer, no one ever responded. We eventually found the customer service section while stumbling through some back pages on the website.

Due to the poorly organized customer service information and the fact that the company seems to cater more to the Commercial client, Christmas Lights Etc received a below than average rating as it would not meet the needs of most of our shoppers.
