[Home Depot] Cheap CFL bulbs at all major retailers after using in-store coupon - Ontario Only

I just got back from local Home Depot and got a 4-pack of mini-spiral CFL bulbs for $0.98 after using a $5 coupon. Regular price was $5.98!
Limit 5 per customer. This coupon applied to all Energy Star qualified CFLs pack of 3 or more bulbs.
Deal on until end of October. Ontario only.

They had another $2 coupon, don't know the details.

For more information see this great thread!

Why oh why do they limit these promotions to CFL when LED is so much better.

1. Energy savings averages 50-80%
2. Lifetime of a fluorescent is 20-30,000 hrs; LED is 100,000 hrs.
3. No low-level radiation or damaging UV rays.
4. Average Return on investment is 30-50%
5. Better light quality over lifetime. No flickering.
6. Low heat emanation means money saved on cooling.
7. The light is very easy on the eyes and can be dimmed.

Yeah, sure, you've got to be careful and choose the right one because there's a lot of crap out there but if every kilowatt really does count then they should be steering us in this direction.

Is that for a single bulb? I got a 4-pack, so cost me about 24 cents per bulb for a reputable brand.

The $5/$2 coupons apply to SPECIALTY CFL ONLY!

If you get the regular twisters with the coupon, good for you, but you shouldn't be.

Yup.

I have previously bought the 'Sunbeam' CFL's at Dollaramma (at that time they were $1). I would not recommend them. The colour of the light was fine but the length of their lifespan was somewhere around 1 year. This is only my experience with about 6-10 bulbs but others I currently use last much longer. One bulb did not work at all and Dollaramma would NOT take it back :mad: Apparently they don't take any returns for any reason.
It used to be only death and taxes were inevitable. Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.

Indeed. OP got lucky. Went to home depot this morning (markham/kirkham) and tried the same 4-pack mini-spiral bulbs @ 5.98 (Philips) and got denied at the checkout. Cashier had a list of eligible skus :( YMMV, I suppose. The 6-pack mini-spiral bulbs @ ~9.98 did not work either.

Any good deals to bundle this coupon with ATM? We're still looking around. :razz:
