um… this 24 pack is on amazon for $15 with free shipping… Decisions, decisions… pay $36 here with taxes and shipping, or $15 on amazon… lol
It seems the seller for it ships out of MN, so it’s not the usual amazon third party seller who ships from china.
Definitely considering it now.
Yeah Lowes sells LED bulbs for about $1 a piece. I’d suggest bypassing even Amazon and heading there.
Also, LED light bulbs last forever. There is no reason to buy 24 of them at once unless you have an entire home (or business) that needs to be outfitted with new bulbs.
Don’t buy this so you have a bunch of extras on-hand. They will sit on your shelf taking space for years. Just buy the latest tech when it’s time to replace.
Though if this were a good deal, and if you had a bunch of incandescent light bulbs to upgrade, then this would be a good kick in the pants to swap out all of them at once.
Or to replace your old-tech CFL curly-Q bulbs as they inevitably die a sizzling death (it’s a pretty cool sound really, if you’ve ever heard it).
They must have read your post. Now they are $37.99 with prime.
Bought much cheaper at HD couple of months ago. Color is OK - fine for utility use.
ummmm… at 6:45am EST…
21.82 + 6.49 s&h ($28.31).
[Mod edit: This link is still pointing me to the $37 option. ]
Am I the only one who thinks 60 watt bulbs (and equivalent) aren’t every bright enough?
exactly. I just bought a 4 pack of 60w equivalent for 4 bucks at my home depot. PHILLIPS brand too, not this nobrand name.
Looks like the ones for $15 are sold out. (The ones from MN). Luckily I got one before it disappeared. Now the only ones left on amazon are for $39.
Most of the lamp assemblies in my house used 100W bulbs. (Pre-CFL&LED) Since new lamp assemblies are made in China (or similar) from thin aluminum and pressboard, rether than USA made from ceramic and brass there are no longer available anything rated over 60 Watt. (Much to dim by my standards). First there were CFL’s but a 23-25W was way bigger than incandescent and did not physically fit in many lamps. Further, while cool white/daylight incandescent bulbs cost LESS than the “warm whight” (which light your house in sunset tones and impossible to take decent color pictures) it is now nearly impossible to find anything but “warm white” in LED bulbs, cool white CFLs cost 50-75% more than warm whight, and LED bulbs to replace 100W incandescents still cost what it takes to light that incandescent for a few years - financially a loser.
The safety standards got stricter over the years, hence the ratings are much more conservative nowadays. I’ve had old 100w rated lamps with thinner cords than newer ones that were only (UL) rated for 26w CFLs.
Incandescent bulbs are in the 2500-3000K range, so if you are looking to replace those, warm white LEDs would be the proper replacement. Fluorescent are typically colder, in the 4100k-5000k; cool white is closer to those.
See if your state has energy programs for the bulbs. Here in SoCal, I was able to pick up dimmable 12w LEDs/1100 lumens for under a buck each.
