Interesting Find at Dollar Tree $1 GE Energy Smart Globe Hybrid CFL 40w Bright from the Start Bulbs

Interesting Find at Dollar Tree $1 GE Energy Smart Globe Hybrid CFL 40w Bright from the Start Bulbs

Click to view full size image

These 'oddball' bulbs showed up at Dollar Tree (in Atlanta area). Wasn't expecting these as all other bulbs were Sunbeam or lesser brands...these are the Energy Smart bulbs that have a CFL element and a halogen capsule bulb all in one so they start at 'full' brightness until the CFL gets bright enough and then the halogen capsule shuts off. Not a bad specimen to hold on to as these have gone the way of the dinosaur pretty much.

Cool! It's always neat to see surplus big name brand bulbs show up at the Dollar Tree! I found a few 4-packs of clear GE 60 watt bulbs at my local Dollar Tree recently.

Philips DuraMax and GE Miser forever!  Classic incandescents are the best incandescents!

Because of the packaging look and the older technology with this bulb and the place I found them, it's my guess GE had a big warehouse of these that sat un-sold/un-ordered so they finally made their way to the dollar stores after GE was pretty sure they couldn't get a higher tier retailer to stock them.

I never heard of these type of bulbs before, interesting. And I only see those Sunbeam incandescent bulbs at Dollar Tree, but I didn't buy any. I get most of my bulbs at Marshalls on clearance.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

My local Dollar Tree is in upstate South Carolina, close to you. It's the same deal there with Sunbeam brand bulbs by default and a few better brands like GE or Philips mixed in occasionally. I didn't know Marshalls sold light bulbs. I'll have to look into that

I went to Dollar Tree today and they did have these GE bulbs and the Sylvania incandescent ones.

Yeah sometimes they have bulbs at Marshalls. Usually they're specialty types though. I've seen Philips blue plant bulbs and I got some GE LED Bright Stik bulbs this time last year.
