Why We’re Excited About These Deals
Whether you buy an artificial Christmas tree or opt to go natural, the first thing you should buy (after the decorations, of course) is a smart plug. A smart plug will make it easy to turn the lights on and off without having to crawl under the tree, and you can also set the lights to come on at certain times of day, such as in the evening after the sun goes down. Often, this is far cheaper than buying smart Christmas lights, which can cost three or four times as much as regular holiday lights.
Right now, if you buy a select National Tree Company artificial tree, you can get a free Amazon Smart Plug and an Echo Dot (3rd Gen). The Echo Dot lets you ask Alexa to turn the lights on your tree on and off thanks to the smart plug. Of course, you can also use the Echo Dot for all of the other useful things it does (like asking Alexa to play Mariah Carey, for example). And once the Christmas tree is put away, you can repurpose the Smart Plug for floor lamps, air conditioner tower fans or coffee makers.
As for the trees themselves, National Tree Company has an impressive selection, and they’re one of the best options for artificial Christmas trees. They’re pre-lit, so you don’t have to worry about not having enough lights, and National Tree Company makes versions of many different kinds of trees, like Douglas fir, Dunhill fir, and Nordic spruce. They also have a premium line of “Feel Real” trees, which are strikingly realistic versions of natural trees. Other picks include flocked trees for anyone who’s dreaming of a white Christmas.
