Cheaper at Lowe's Home Improvement Stores,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GE Lighting 62180 Energy Smart LED 9-Watt (40-watt replacement) 450-Lumen A19 Light Bulb with Medium Base, 1-Pack (Tools & Home Improvement)
This is a fantastic light bulb and anyone who is looking for an energy efficient LED bulb that throws light in all different directions this is the bulb for you. The only problem I'm having with Amazon right now is that I just walked into Lowe's Home Improvement Center yesterday and saw these same bulbs for $34.98, significantly less than what they are listed for on here. I've purchased 4 of these bulbs for a light fixture in my bathroom and would have saved a significant amount of money had I purchased these at Lowe's. Save some money and buy from Lowe's if you have one near you.

Lowe's also carries Fiet LED bulbs too, however I did not see what the price difference was for them.

These are cheaper at Lowe's or at Home Depot because depending where you are in the country the energy efficient bulbs CFL/LED are upstream incentivised by the local utility company's energy conservation programs. Meaning the utility copany pays the store direct x amount for every bulb sold and the consumer never sees the cost.

Good information that I did not know. So ultimately check your local retailer before you buy. It could save you lots especially if your buying multiple bulbs.

(Originally posted in late September 2011, when the prices were about the same; editing now that they are different.)
Just FYI, the price at Lowe's is a few dollars cheaper now than you mention (at least at my store now--and it was the price you mentioned earlier this summer), but the price on Amazon has come down significantly, as well. It still works out in favor of Lowe's, but all LEDs seem to be going down in price lately. I can only wonder what the future will bring...

Lowes recently had them on sale for $29.99 but with a $10 off coupon just above. So $19.99 plus tax minus 5% lowes card discount. Unfortunately the coupon expired 1/31/12....but they are still honoring them

How long will you have to keep this light bulb to recoup $35 in initial investment?
let's see. 400 lumen LED cost around $1-$4, LED controller cost no more than $1 max, heat sink $1 max, packaging and other misc stuff $1 max, total manufacturing cost to $5-$6. Where did GE come up with $60 MSRP for a light bulb?
Consumer's don't get to receive $14 billions of phony stimulus money stolen from unborn generation of America like GE does, and obviously these corporate hogs are living in their own fantasy island.
