Remember that free shipping on purchases over $49 deal at Sears? It looks like they’ve extended it. And Home Depot is jumping on the bandwagon, too. An added bonus: Home Depot will ship Christmas trees for free.
I’m not certain about the pre-holiday deals, but I’ve picked up Christmas trees at Home Depot after Christmas for diddly-squat. Like, for example, I snagged a 7′ with lights for $40. Really.
