Where to find a good deal on a Christmas tree

I've always bought real trees but this year was the last real one I'll probably buy. Our tree wound up being infested with aphids. Luckily most of them didn't hatch until the day after Christmas but it still grossed my DW and me out.

So we'll probably get a fake one for the next couple of years. I'm assuming there are some pretty good deals on them now. Does anyone know where to look either in stores or online?

Give it a couple days and walmart should have them 75% off (albeit with a slightly smaller selection). We bought a pretty nice 7.5 foot tree from there a few years ago and it is still doing well. Just checked the price on the box - $78 before discount, $19.50 after. It is a "7.5 foot Majestic Pine".
