Home Depot offers the Philips 8.5-watt Soft White A19 LED Light Bulb 12-Pack, model no. 455584, for $26.97. Opt for in-store pickup to dodge the $5.99 shipping charge. That's $2.25 per bulb, the best per-bulb price we've seen, and the lowest price we could find for this quantity by $21. (For further comparison, we saw a 2-pack for $5 via in-store pickup two weeks ago.) Each 60-watt-equivalent bulb features 800 lumens of brightness and has an estimated lifespan of more than 10,000 hours.
The company cuts hours for the holidays, and then bases bonuses on those reduced hours. Is it fair?
