Artificial Christmas Tree Return Policy & Warranty Information

Artificial Christmas Tree Return Policy

All newly purchased artificial Christmas trees must be returned within two weeks of the purchase date in order to receive a full refund. Trees returned outside of that two-week window will not be accepted. Lifelike Christmas trees cannot be returned after December 24th of the year purchased. Lifelike trees sold after 12/25 cannot be returned. All clearance trees are final sale. They are still subject to repairs as stated in section 4. Floor model lifelike Christmas trees that are returned within two weeks must be in full working order and are subject to a $100 restocking fee.

Light Sets on your Hicks Lifelike Christmas Tree
As a courtesy to our customers, if a light set fails on your lifelike tree during the first or second season*, we will make a reasonable effort to get the light set working. This includes inspecting the set, making sure all connections are secure and if required, shocking the set with a low jolt of electricity. If we are unable to repair or replace your light set, we will take your tree back and offer you a store credit for the price you paid for the tree.

If the lights on your lifelike tree fail after the first two seasons, we will replace the defective light sets at a cost of $24.99** per set. If you do not want your tree repaired, we will take back your tree and will offer you the following discounts for up to five (5) seasons from your original purchase date:

3rd season – 30% off current lowest price***
4th season – 20% off the current lowest price
5th season – 10% off the current lowest price

*The first season includes the year in which the tree is purchased.
** Prices and availability are subject to change.
***Excludes clearance trees.
