Well, essentially. IKEA Japan is selling Christmas trees for about $20 (1,990 yen). Buy one, take it home and enjoy. In January (from the 5th through the 18th), bring your receipt AND the tree (no ornaments, please!) back to the store for recycling, and you’ll get a voucher for $20 of IKEA merchandise. Deal!
IKEA Canada is offering a similar deal, only the voucher is good on purchases over $75. Either way, if you’re going to be shopping at IKEA anyway (and who isn’t, really?) it’s an excellent deal and you’ll be helping reduce landfill waste. Win-win-win!
