The 7w/60w HD Phillips bulbs are not dimming. --Only 9.5/60w Phillips are dimming which I don't believe HD carries.
Try Home Hardware for Dimming 9.5w Phillips bulbs. I know they carry those.....

Now I have enough bulbs to last a life time (if they truly last like they advertise) so I can't buy any more this round. Maybe if you hold off, the next one would be even cheaper, or probably giving them out for free
I bought 50 of those "$3 Dollerama bulbs" a couple years ago. Decided I had enough of their companionship as my garage door remotes wouldn't work, and my stereo stations would cut out when the lights were turned on.
Switched all 50 to Phillips 7w and 9.5w bulbs last week. No more issues.
Now I just need to recoup $200 worth of electricity charges to cover the cost of the bulbs (which should only me take about 146,283 years.)

They would make great prank gifts....that coworker you don't really like or the nosy neighbour. Bring a few with you when doing illegal deals to run interference if you suspect they're wearing a wire or the place is bugged.

I purchased lots of LED bulbs at $1 and less figuring there's no way they'd ever be cheaper.
I was wrong - I am in the USA for the week - the Ocean State Job Lot chain of stores has them for 7 cents a bulb with their "Buy 12 bulbs at 99 cents a bulb - get a $12 gift card towards your next purchase" promo.
Price works out to 7 cents (the value of the tax on the purchase).

They have Greenlite A19 60w equiv, MaxLite A19 40w equiv , Cree A19 40w equiv & 60w equiv and Green Lite clear 40w equiv filament style.
I picked up 3 dozen of the 40w filament style.

It wouldn't surprise me if somebody hands out LED bulbs for Halloween.

Actually, I have seen the Philips dimmable LED bulbs. I think the 60W bulbs are $3.50 per bulb before the discount. I have no idea what the actual wattage is for these bulbs. I didn't check.

Went to Etobicoke South to buy Phillips this morning. The non dimmable ones only apply rebate. The dimmable ones do not. YMMV

I went to home depot and grabbed a couple of these 50 cent bulbs. As a plus they are "360 light" which means instead of a big white base at the bottom they are clear to let more light towards the base.
Also very odd was a two pack of the same bulbs for $3.50 after rebate whereas the individual bulbs in a box where 50 cents after rebate.
I've had problems with dollar store bulbs of unknown make, I assume the power supply is shoddy compared to brand name ones from chain stores.
