Star Let's Talk Pre-Lit Christmas Trees (update)

No laughing...I put up my Christmas tree today (not decorated, just up)....ok, ok...I'm going away for Thanksgiving and between all the school parties, shopping, baking etc....I had to get it out....enough said.


My pre-lit tree looks like a DISCO! I purchased the tree from Target (naturally 75%off) two years ago. I only used the tree one Christmas thus far. It is a 9ft. Sylvania "random twinkle" prelit tree. Last year one or two of the strands were totally flashing...not twinkling or blinking...flashing...like a neon truck stop sign! Naturally this occured after the entire tree was decorated with a million things. So we delt with the black hole in the middle of the tree. Now today we put up the tree and the same strand doesn't light up....and NOW we have a couple of strands towards the bottom that are also flashing....not the look I was going for!

Sooooooo I wrote a letter to the company (not expecting much)...but does anyone out there LOVE LOVE their artificial prelit tree?! Please let me know as this one will be in the trash after this season....I hate being wasteful but for as much time as I spent with the tree today I could have had a real one and placed the lights on by hand in the same amount of time. My mother always says, "It's you time or your money"...in this case it's both!

I adore my prelit tree. I got it at kmart the year my son was born, only just last year the lights finally died 6 christmases not to bad. But I was lazy and stuck another strand of lights on it over the prelit ones.

Sometimes it pays to write a letter to a company; I wrote to Sylvania regarding the flashing lights...they in turn sent me the phone number to the manufacturer of the lights. They called me and after the story was complete they are sending me a refund for the tree...it didn't cost very much as I purchased on sale (naturally) but at least I will use that money to buy a new one this year.....the twinkle was the issue, I was told to replace all the twinkle bulbs with regular ones (NOT)....so this year Disco it is....

WOW...that was great...never hurts to try anything...good for you...I would have done the same thing... That must have been a great company that they sent you a refund.....and now you still have your """disco""" tree...

my husband bought me a led pre-lit christmas tree a few years ago when my other tree lights would not come on! ( i was in tears because i love decorating for christmas!) anyways he went to walmart and bought a huge led christmas tree and it works great. led light are suppose to last longer. he is a dj and uses led light and they always seem to last longer. just one warning when you first plug it in you may need to put sun glasses on because they are a whole lot brighter but you do get use to it! i love mine!
