From Wed 23rd Nov, if you buy a £25.00 real Christmas tree from Ikea, you'll be given a £20 voucher to spend at any participating store between Mon 16 Jan and Sun 12 Feb next year.

Officially, it's on until Fri 23 Dec, but if previous years are anything to go by, this'll be tree-tremendously popular - so go quick if you want one. The only stores not participating are Ikea Cardiff and the collection points in Birmingham and Stratford.

Ikea says they're about 170cm (5ft 7in) tall, but do vary in size. There's no delivery option

Can be reposted after a month and probably didn't get any heat at the time as it was to early and last year it was posted so many times without being confirmed.

Belfast store shows as more stock arriving 20/11/16!?! Considering Belfast weren't going to start selling until the day after the rest of the UK last year....

Bought my voucher at Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago. Used an Ikea family £5 off voucher and got meal for two in the restaurant from swipe and win.

Edit: meant swipe a surprise! Swipe and win was Sainsbury's/Nectar.

It's a pity that they don't start this offer a bit closer to Christmas. Expecting a cut tree to last well over a month in a heated home is too much. Surely they could leave it at least until December?

I do this every year and providing you water the tree every other day it will last at least 4 weeks

I always cut about a half inch to an inch off the bottom and place it in a bucket of water and leave outside until ready to bring in, normally two weeks before Christmas.

Done this the last two years from the ground floor car park of the Southampton store. OK if you're after a 5 foot tree, but good luck getting anything taller. 6 foot plus trees are always on very high demand and very short supply. Trees were usually already netted up, so if you're fussy about the shape you'll need to ask the staff to remove the netting. This can be a pain when the store is busy and can feel like a bun fight. Also, bear in mind that you won't be able to start using the £20 voucher until after the January sale has finished. This year will be going to my local garden centre as they will be selling all sizes of Nordman Firs for £15. This is a much better proposition and you too may be able to source a similar deal locally.

I've done the same in previous years. This is probably better than waiting til you need it because it's likely they've all been cut and waiting to be delivered/sold for a while before you purchase.

It'll be dead by the time you finally exit the store

We've had one from the Nottingham store for the past 3 years. They sell out fast, but even bought early Dec have always lasted well in to the new year if watered & not kept in too hot a room (or like suggested have the bottom cut off and kept in water outside). Had a 7ft the first year, but they are all around 5ft now, the staff are happy to help you oil one though & will re bag your choice. You pay. In store before picking one.

Huh?

A lot of these shed their needles last year. The problem is that they had been picked before having a proper frost, which causes the needles to lock on somehow. I'm not sure where these come from but it's been a warm year...

I have done this in the past and my mother puts hers in the cellar as she is lucky enough to have one. Leaving it outside in water and watering it means it should last without problems.

Thanks for the tip. Thinking about it, I was planning to do exactly this, this year, but had forgot! I'm so glad you pointed it out, genuinely.

Is assembly required and is an allen key included as with most Ikea purchases ?

Voted hot for resisting using the pun "Treemendously"

Also wondering this, I do this offer every year but Croydon aren't usually included but it is my local store... would be great news if so, hate the journey to Wembley!

Fill the pot/bucket it's in with water... or else you'll have a dead tree pretty quickly

Im not very good with IKEA instructions so i'll pass

Hmm anyone seen any offers for a stand for a real tree that you can add water to?!

no info about the voucher

tonyfonda

no info about the voucher



What info do you want?

Done this a few years ago.

Got the tree home, put it up etc....

Couple of days later I come home from work....Baby spiders everywhere! Eggs stuck to the tree had hatched due to the warmth in the house.

Ikea replaced it with an atificial one when I called customers services.

So yeah, if you are going to do this, make sure you shake your tree before entering the house!!

Ikea do their own one, but it is rather big, plastic and a bit ugly - but good value!
