TP-Link Kasa KB100 Dimmable White Smart A19 Light Bulb, 50W Equivalent, No Hub Required

Regularly $19.99 Mostly discounted to $14.97 online.
Clearance priced in store as low as $3

I've only got Sengled bulbs. But they haven't had any good sales in quite a while & I've been wanting more.

I just fell into 8 of these which I don't guess are the best tech. But I still couldn't walk away at this price.

I also know I'm going to get a whole bunch of noise about how few & far between the markdowns are. They are out there though...

75248 TX

33189 FL

97086 OR

63122 MO $10

24571 VA

And if they stick w/the usually MO, there should be more stores dropping relatively soon. So may be worth it to keep an eye out.

Most stores that has it for $3 are OOS. Most that have them in stock have them for $14.97. Buy your quantity at one store with one CC, then take it to a store that sells it for $3. Go to customer service with your product and receipt for return. Tell them you want to change payment on another card. They'll process the return and when you rebuy, it'll be $3.

How about lurkers giving it a shot and employees weren't able to find it. But it'll still be on count?

We all know how messed up Brickseek & Wally inventory both can be. But still...!

That craziness aside - for all the times we've bashed snarky wally workers, I owe the guy who took care of me here .He was just as nice & helpful as could be.

I told him what I expected (per BS) They'd gotten buried in back after a dept redesign. But he went searching w/o complaint. Even found extras. Then volunteered to price match. So shout out to this dude who couldn't have been nicer!

So I finally got around to a store that BS shows 11 in stock. None could be traced in the clearance or tech locations. Had an associate look up the UPC and sure enough it shows 11. So BS is correct. What I assume is not correct is the model listed on BS along with the SKU/UPC. Associate tried to hunt them down but what she concluded to is the KB100 (listed here) has the same cross reference number as the model we saw, which is the LB100.

So even if I was to buy the LB100 and take it to the store that shows the KB100 to have for $3 for the return/rebuy method, it wouldn't work. As both I assume to have different SKU/UPS numbers. So all in all a waste of time.

Anyone else ran into this difficulty?
