So it is with an extreme level of confidence that I can say that this “deal” that’s still happening for a $104 fake, pre-lit pine tree branch at Pottery Barn is the worst Cyber Monday deal I’ve ever seen.
Not because it isn’t discounted—it is, down from an even-more-shocking $142. And not because there isn’t some level of convenience enjoyed by not having to string 50 cents of LED lights across your own fake pine branch. It’s just the sheer gall it takes to not only sell a polyester pine branch and some twine, but to ask people to display it, proudly, in their home. It doesn’t even include the three AAA batteries required to run it!
What kind of buyer does Pottery Barn imagine when it lists such a piece? It’s hard to tell (though the four half-filled glasses of wine leave a clue).
Either way, don’t buy this silly thing. If you want a good Cyber Monday deal, we’ve got you covered with plenty that are still live in our list of the best deals you can still shop—go check those out, instead.
