As a guy who bit HARD on CFL some 10 years ago and changed out almost every bulb in the house.... nah. I will not purchase another. So many have failed, and so many buzz so loud... or take a hundred years to get to full light output.... nope. I pray for the day LED gets affordable.
I am dead serious, I am actually changing out dead/buzzy/sucky CFL bulbs and replacing them with the original incandescents I pulled and put in a box like 10 years ago.
Oddly enough, the cheapo bulk ones I got at Home Depot have been much better than the brand name ones I bought individually. F you GE, so many of your $10 bulbs are dead now...
I'm probably just pissed I wasted all that money, make your own decisions.
Edit - oh I have 2 Feit LED bulbs for a couple years now and no issues. $15 a pop though...

So while the CFL's actually contain a tiny amount of mercury vapor, running an incandescent bulb releases almost 5 times as much (in this case) mercury into the atmosphere as compared to a CFL, which more than makes up for the mercury released when a CFL is destroyed.

|txp135||I try to stay away from these just because they contain mercury. But for $.25/each, screw the environment.|

|billcsho||This is sponsored by your local utility company. So it is a YMMV. We did have this deal since a couple years ago. Now it went up a buck.|

Feit Electric 13W (60W replacement) cfl light bulb 4-pack $.99 @ Costco YMMV (I saw/bought at Merrillville, IN store B&M)
Costco has 4-packs of these cfl light bulbs (the twirly kind) that are meant to replace a typical 60w bulb. They are marked $4.99, but there's an instant $4 discount per pack with a limit of 10. So you can get 40 for about $10 + tax.
