MONEY expert Martin Lewis has revealed how shoppers can get their hands on a real IKEA Christmas tree for just £15.
The MoneySavingExpert (MSE) founder offered various festive shopping tips for savers wanting to cut costs this Christmas.
As part of the MSE weekly newsletter, Martin offered a saving hack that could get you a real Christmas tree from IKEA for much cheaper.
From Friday 25 November, if you head to IKEA and purchase one of its real Christmas trees for £25, you’ll get a “free” £10 voucher to spend in store.
This means that effectively, this tree only cost you £15, a nice £10 saving.
The voucher will be valid from Monday, January 9 until Sunday, February 12 2023, so make sure you use it fast as you won’t have heaps of time to use it.
According to the financial guru, the offer is available until Christmas Eve, but in previous years the trees have sold out well before this – so be quick if you want to grab the offer.
While the saving is still good, in past years it has been even bigger.
The trees are all of the same variety – Nordmann Fir – and they’re typically about 170cm (5ft 7in) tall, but do vary in size.
These trees can often be more expensive elsewhere, ranging from £60 to even over £100.
If you’re after even bigger savings, then see our Cheapest Christmas Trees guide for more info.
For example, Gardner’s Dream is selling one for £74.99 while Very is selling one for £89.99 – so IKEA is definitely providing a good deal.
You’ll only be able to buy a tree in-store, so do make sure you’re able to get it home.
Unfortunately, MSE said the offer isn’t available in the Greenwich or Hammersmith stores as they won’t be stocking the trees.
However, you will be able to spend the voucher in those stores.
IKEA used to sell the tree for £29 but give shoppers a £20 voucher when they purchased them – the tree would have cost them just £9.
But as the cost of living grows, prices are going up everywhere.
Speaking on his ITV show last night, Martin also encouraged shoppers to check if they have any Tesco Clubcard vouchers that expire next week.
He warned that £13million worth of Tesco vouchers are due to expire in a week – but there is a trick to extend them.
Any vouchers which were issued in November 2020 will run out on November 30 this year.
However, Martin said there is a way to get around this.
If you spend 50p using a £10 Tesco Clubcard voucher, you’ll get £9.50 back as new vouchers.
