Hey, just a word of caution when you're deal shopping; some companies produce knock-offs that aren't UL approved.
When you're shopping for low-price electronics, always take a second to look for UL certification.
And take a close look.
Some companies fake the UL seal. If you find spelling errors, or the label just looks "off," you might want to run a check through the Consumer Product Safety Commission before you buy.
I wrote an article about unsafe extension cords a few years ago, and the same tips apply to Christmas lights.
That said, you might try Wal-Mart and Home Depot. I'd steer clear of the dollar stores. In the long run, it could be costly.
