I saw some Philips LEDs at Vancouver, Seymour and at Harbour Centre. Not sure if they were the exact same ones. I recall there being 2700K (orange half-stripe) and 3000K (blue half-stripe). The one at the top has a yellow half-stripe. I'm not sure if the ones I saw were dimmable. I didn't notice the symbols at the back, as I was looking for the word "dimmable".

Upvoted! Thanks for that. I rarely visit Costco and was unaware of this option. $2.66 per bulb for dimmable 3000K LEDs is fantastic. My mother-in-law practically lives at Costco so I'm gonna have her grab that 3 pack for me as I really want to try a pair in my 2 outlet enclosed fixture. Thanks also for your feedback on Feit brand reliability. I think longevity makes a big difference in LED bulb selection, so I'm always happy to hear that a particular brand is actually living up to the advertised lifespan. Ecosmart and Luminus LED brands have been big disappointments for me thus far. Philips is my current favourite, but Feit is now going to get a seat at the table. Cheers!

It's actually quite easy to spot "good" ones vs the "bad" or lower quality ones --
Look for "suitable for damp locations" and also "suitable for totally enclosed fixtures"
Both of these statements are written on the 100w costco 3-pack; the cheaper ones normally aren't.

Thanks OP.
I too loaded up on 60W LED bulbs when they were on sale last time for 50 cents a piece. I also got some "socket Y splitters" for like 30 cents each, which allow me to use two of the 60W LED bulbs in one socket, wherever I need more light and space is not an issue (like garage, pantry or shop); ugly, but it works wonders and it is dirt cheap.
But for those tight places or cramped enclosures (or where "wife acceptance factor" is in play), these 100W LED bulbs are a life saver, even though, for me, they cost 5 to 8 times more per bulb for just 65% more lumens.
The fact that brand-name 60W LED bulbs are no longer available at the "50 cent per bulb" price point (they are $1.50 to $2 each now), makes these 100W bulbs look even better now.

My current source of "60W equivalent" 3000K Dimmable LED bulbs is a Canadian vendor (Ottawa based) living.ca ($8 for a 6 pack until July 14). I have only installed a few and had them running under 6 months, so a little soon for me to vouch for longevity. But at least the price per bulb is reasonable (if you structure your order to receive free shipping). They are well reviewed with a score of 4.7/5 on nearly 300 reviews. Right now if you can hit $39 on an order you get an extra $5 off coupon. Pretty solid for 3000K (although I have no idea what Costco offers in this segment).

Okay, the Vancouver, Seymour location still have a bunch of these, and I've verified that they're the same. There's 2700K and 3000K, so check before buying.

Is 3000k much noticibly whiter than 2700k? I have potlights at 6000k and want some of the other lights to be less yellow but not as bright as the pot lights. Would I best be served by 3000k or 5000k?

I think there is a very big difference between 2700k and 3000k for yellow colouration. I have actually migrated all the 2700k bulbs I bought originally to extremely low use bulbs in my household (back porch, garage door opener's motor, etc). 3000K is nicer, but I have found that since I switched my entire basement and all my bathrooms to 5000K, that even 3000K still feels too yellow for me. I think the right bulbs for you (and me too) would probably be 4000K (maybe 3500K or 4500K) but that market is currently way overpriced and underserviced from what I can see. If anyone has figured out a way to get affordable 3500-4500K LED bulbs, please don't be shy to jump in :)

3000k is "whiter". I've use/tried 2700K, 3000k, 4000k, 5000k. From all those my preference is 4000K if you're looking for a "pure white" light. 3000K is better than 2700K but I still find that it can still have a slight yellow tinge.

I would say 3000k-4000k would be better for your usage, depending how white you want to get. Just know that as you get closer to 5000k it will start to get "bluer" and lower to 2000k it will be "yellower".

Though I do find it harder to find 4000k bulbs. 2700k, 3000k, 5000k are much more common.

Anyone know where I can find a good deal on 100W 5000K "daylight" LED bulbs?

I am weird and prefer the "sterile" white light over any type of yellow light.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

Way better deal. Dollarama stock is occasionally subpar. Costco at least isn't garbage.
I had one bad out of three. Only needed two so didn’t bother removing the installed ones and taking them back to Costco. Just one data point.

Honestly, check the prices elsewhere. $4/bulb is pretty steep. Dollarama isn't really as affordable as it used to be, way to many items actually higher in price then elsewhere.

4 bucks for a LED bulbs looks cold
You can easily find 2 for $5 LED bulbs from Ikea
