Home Depot [homedepot.com] has a 6-pack of 5000K 60W equivalent light bulbs by TCP listed for $19.19. This matches the price on the previous Frontpage [homedepot.com] deal on these.

This is the lowest price I've seen on these anywhere ever.

I have used many of these in my home and they are great quality bulbs with a rated lifespan of 20,000 hours. There are other lower cost bulbs on the market, but you likely won't find daylight bulbs with this lifespan for this price.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Very YMMV now. OOS online for shipping to home/store, so likely in store only now

Its Back Online. Can someone get rid of the "Deal/report Expired'?

5000K is pretty close to sunlight. You consider sunlight to be creepy cold morgue lighting?

7000-9000K = daytime shade
6500K = sunlight + blue sky
5500K = sunlight
3500-4000K = fluorescent (narrow bandwidth, which caused the green morgue skin look)
2300-2800K = tungsten bulbs
1800K = candle or campfire

Your brain is incredibly good at changing the reference color based on the ambient light (white balancing in photo/video terminology). It's what caused the white/gold or blue/black dress thing. If you happened to notice the background was horribly overexposed, your brain automatically thought "oh this picture is much brighter than reality" and compensated, and you saw a blue and black dress. If you didn't notice the background, you saw a white/gold dress.

Same thing happens with nighttime lighting. If you're used to red/orange tungsten lighting, then they will look "white" and the 5000k bulbs will look blue. In reality 5000K is actually slightly yellower than daylight.

After a couple decades of photography and white balancing photos, I'm pretty good at recognizing true color (the color your camera would record with auto white balance turned off). I can't stand 2700k bulbs anymore because it's obvious to me that everything is too orange/yellow under them. The 2700K soft white LEDs are actually closer to 3000-3500K, which I find tolerable, even preferably in places like bedrooms where color isn't important. But for anyplace where I want to actually see colors, I prefer 4000-6500K bulbs.

So that's probably the best way to do it. Use 2700K bulbs in "cozy" settings like bedrooms, use 4000-6500K bulbs in work areas like garages, kitchens. Use 3000-3500K bulbs in in-between areas like bathrooms and living rooms. Just make sure the bulbs have a 90+ CRI (color rendering index) if you want to see a wide variety of colors. Early fluorescent bulbs were very narrowband and had terrible CRI, which is why they made skin look green like a cadaver.

bought 10 boxes last time, and loved them. I will buy additional 6 boxes.
Thanks OP

Will these work in my garage on a double socket? I'd like to have more light in there and I only have two A19 sockets in the ceiling and I'm wanting to place a double socket in each. TIA

Anyone have experience using these in recessed lights? I've been looking for PAR30 bulbs, but at this price, I might just take a gamble.

Anyone who puts these 5000k daylight bulbs in their ceiling fixtures definitely has a secret basement lair where they perform unnecessary surgery and scientific experiments. Creepy cold morgue lighting.

Everyone has their own preferences. I prefer the 5000k light because it seems brighter to me, even at the same lumen level.
