[Real Canadian Superstore] YMMV Energizer Flashlight + Headlamp + Batt Pack $12.94 Get 10K Pts

Saw this at my local RCSS at the back section, where the Christmas stuff used to be, next to the toys.

Basically costs $12.94 upfront and get 10K PC plus pts back, so works out to be approx $2.94.

Flashlight uses 6xAA, and headlamp uses (I think) 3xAAA. The batteries were included, per attached photos.

I haven't tried them out so can't comment on the quality...

This deal is YMMV. I just checked two SuperStores in Calgary and they were both $25.98 with 10000 points back until Jan 10th. You disappoint me, OP.

Yes, YMMV. I was inside Superstore (Vancouver) when I saw this deal. Found it for $25.98 also.

You happen to have the UPC or numbers on the bottom corner of the sign?

$25.98 at Edmonton Superstores as well. Sign shows "as advertised" too, so you might be lucky you saw the sign at~$13.

I have a feeling that the rest of the country will drop the price of these energizer flashlights to $12.94 after Jan 10th because at $25.98 they are over priced for what they are. There were tons of them at the SuperStores I went to so not many people are buying. Alkaline battery only flashlights like these ones are bottom of the barrel now if you check Amazon. Virtually all good flashlights use rechargable Lithium ion or NiMH batteries because those provide the higher sustained voltages bright LEDs use and don't dim until the battery is depleted. Compare this to alkaline batteries that start dropping in voltage as soon as you start using them which means the flashlight gets dimmer and dimmer.

And it is also way more cost effective to use rechargable batteries than expensive throwaway akalines that can leak if you plan on frequently using them.

Basically, I am wanting to get this deal for emergency back up but not as daily use. If the net cost is more than $5, it is simply not worth the money.

I agree with you but your last line made me laugh. $5 for a 1000 lumen flashlight is not yet common (though you can find sales or clearance occasionally). But i agree that Duracell and Energizer probably sell these lights to get people using more batteries. And personally alkaleaks are not a great idea for an emergency light, sometimes your ok, sometimes you get a big surprise.
That said if this is an XM-L2 or XP-Lx chip then you could substitute the 6AA for NiMH. If its an XH-Px chip then it might still work but might have falloff pretty quickly (and its vastly underdriven).
