Washington Square Tree Now Lit for the Holidays

The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree isn’t the only iconic evergreen in New York City this holiday season. Last night the Washington Square Tree was officially lit under the famous arch. New Yorkers can enjoy the 45-foot spruce and its myriad of twinkling lights every evening from 4 p.m. until 1 a.m. this season.

Since most of us don’t have room for a 45-foot tree in our living rooms, we’ll be looking for something more manageable, like a tree standing three to eight feet. Most of us will also be looking for the lowest price on this tree which is why New Yorkers should be shopping at Christmas Tree Brooklyn!

This family-owned tree seller has always had the lowest prices in town and for a limited time all trees up to 10 feet are just $12 per foot. That means you can buy a 3-foot tree for $36, a 5-foot tree for $60 or an 8-foot tree for $96. That’s less than $100 for a fresh, quality Fraser Fir. Best of all, delivery is free anywhere in New York!

If you need to be convinced of the quality and low prices you can find at Christmas Tree Brooklyn, check out their flagship location at 184 Underhill Ave. in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. There you will find a large selection of trees in sizes from 3 feet to 14 feet, all of them fresh, full and beautiful. Pick a tree and it will be delivered free the same day.

You can also order a tree online from the comfort of your home or office. Just go to and pick the size tree you need and your delivery time. Check out and that’s it! Your tree will be delivered free the same day and if you need setup, it’s just a small extra charge. If you need lights, a stand or a wreath, those can be added to your order. If you have any questions call (347) 474-0079.

It’s always fun to admire spectacular trees like the one in Washington Square but your favorite tree is sure to be the one in your own living room!

More Hatchimals Headed for Target Stores

Good news for harried parents as the most endangered species of the 2016 holiday shopping season will be making an appearance at a Target store near you this weekend! For a limited time, the Hatchimals are back, at least as long as this batch lasts.

Starting Sunday morning, Target stores nationwide will have a new shipment of the sought-after interactive toy including the Target exclusive Bearakeet. The good news is that Target will be selling the Hatchimals for just $59.99 each. The bad news is that lines are already forming outside some Target stores as frantic parents continue their quest for the year’s hottest and rarest toy.

The Hatchimal is a speckled egg that hatches into a virtual pet that will grow with care and training. Unlike a real pet, it will not die or run away if you neglect it. There are enough kids clamoring for this experience to drive prices up to over $200 each on Amazon and eBay.

Target’s corporate blog A Bullseye View leaked the news that beginning on Sunday, December 11, each Target store in the U.S. will be receiving dozens of Hatchimals with more coming during the week. Will this be enough to cure the nationwide Hatchimal drought of 2016?

If all else fails, Hatchimal-themed gift cards will be available for purchase in Target toy departments that can be cashed in on one of the toys when more stock is expected after the first of the year. Hopefully, the child will not have moved on to desiring another toy by then.

This is hardly the first time that seemingly every kid in the country decided that he or she wanted the exact same toy for Christmas, causing empty aisles in stores and panic among parents. Decades ago, it was Beanie Babies and Cabbage Patch Kids. This year it’s the Hatchimal.

If you’re one of the parents planning to camp out in a Target parking lot for the next few days, dress warm and practice your self-defense moves.

How to Get a Really Big Tree Without Paying a Really Big Price

Reading about that 13-foot tree selling for $1,000 in Greenwich Village must have made some New Yorkers very nervous – the ones that were planning to buy a tree the same size. The good news is that you don’t have to spend anywhere near a grand to get a great big tree!

At Christmas Tree Brooklyn you can get a tree in any size from 3 feet to 14 feet with trees up to 10 feet going for just $12 a foot. Even if you want a tree taller than 10 feet you can still get the lowest price in town.

Let’s say you want a 12-foot tree. At Christmas Tree Brooklyn you can get the tree for $300. Add an extra large tree stand for $110, set-up for $49.99 and NY taxes and your total would be $500.77.

Want to go a bit bigger? A 13-foot tree would be $325. With the stand, set-up and taxes, your total would be $527.99. Go all the way up to 14-feet and your total would be $555.21. Not cheap, but certainly much less than the $1,000 being charged by that other NYC tree seller.

You also save on delivery since it’s free! Even when you buy a 14-foot tree, same day delivery is free anywhere in New York City.

There are two easy ways to buy your great big gorgeous tree from Christmas Tree Brooklyn. You can drop by the flagship location at 184 Underhill Ave. in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn and choose your tree in person from the big selection of Fraser Firs. Or you can go to and order your tree online. Either way, delivery to your home of office is free.

If you need lights, tree food or a wreath, those can be added to your order for delivery. If you have questions about buying your tree, call (347) 474-0079 and the friendly Christmas Tree Brooklyn staff can tell you anything you need to know.

Getting a great big tree doesn’t have to be a great big hassle when Christmas Tree Brooklyn takes care of all the work so you can relax and enjoy your most magnificent tree ever!

New Smartphone Deals from Sprint

This is not the best year to get a hot deal on a smartphone but there are some decent deals out there if you know where to look for them. Here are a few offers for Sprint customers new and current but be warned that most are good for a limited time.

If you have a large family and want to give all of them smartphones for Christmas, Sprint is offering free Samsung Galaxy J3 phones for your whole family when you buy a new smartphone for yourself. Of course, there’s lots of fine print like up to 10 lines, 24-month agreements, taxes, early termination, etc. The J3 is not Samsung’s flagship phone but it is a decent choice for a budget model with a list price of $192. This deal expires January 1.

Sprint is also offering its Unlimited Freedom plan at $60 a month for one line, $40 for the second and $30 each for additional lines. This would average out to $32.50 per month per line for a family of four and also expires January 1.

Another good Sprint deal lets customers with good credit get a new Samsung Galaxy S7 for no money down with 24 monthly payments of $28.96, plus get another Galaxy S7 free and a free Samsung Gear VR headset with Oculus gift pack.

All these deals can be found at but Best Buy is also offering a $200 gift card when you buy and activate select smartphones with a monthly payment or lease plan from Sprint. The smartphones included in this offer are the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, Samsung Galaxy J3, LG V20 and LG G5. The Galaxy J3 is an especially sweet deal since payments are only $8 per month.

Given the shortage of super duper smartphone deals this year, all of these are worth checking out provided you want to have Sprint as your carrier. It’s always a good idea to check back on the websites of the major carriers to see what new goodies they’re offering this week.
