LED Bulbs in Canada

Good day everyone;

I've been looking to replace the ~25 BR30 incandescent bulbs :idea: I have in my home with more energy efficient ones. After searching around for an hour or so, it doesn't appear as I have a ton of options.

18-19 dollars seems to be going rate for GE/Phillips type bulbs, as seen here:

Anyone have any advice on finding these a little cheaper? Do they usually go on sale? Is there some very hidden canadian bulb site I should be going to? Any advice is appreciated. I typically wouldn't post something about bulbs, but with the quantity I require, I'm looking at about $500 worth of lights right now. Thank-you!

Dave

It doesn't look like Rona carries LED BR30's.

Costco had a deal for BR30 LED bulbs.

Unless you prefer the BR30 type, you can go for PAR20 bulbs... I have fixtures that are the size of BR30's. However I put PAR20's in them. I personally prefer it due to the fact the bulb is hidden and the lighting becomes more recessed.

I recommend purchasing bulbs on ebay. The PAR20's i'm using are from ebay at $5 a bulb. The quality is surprisingly good with no signs of them "blowing up" as many users may say that's what ebay bulbs do.

You'll have to know what you're looking for on ebay though. You can't just hop on and buy the first cheap led bulb you find. I spent a bit of time searching for specific qualities of the bulb from the pictures listed. And in turn, I received quality bulbs.

Thanks in regards to the PAR20/BR30 tip, I wasn't aware of that.

Any recommendations for what I should be looking for in an ebay bulb, or a website that might detail the qualities/attributes I'd be looking for based on the listed picture?
