EcoSmart 6 in. 9.5-Watt (65W) LED Downlight $24.97 Free In-Store Pick Up
I've been tracking these for a while now; they are usually $40 each at HD stores and online. Amazon has them for $32.50-$46 shipped and can be found on ebay for about $40 shipped. I think these may have been as low as $19 in some states, but here in the SF bay area I think $25 is just about the lowest I've heard of. Great product, great reviews (Amazon Review link to the 10.5 watt version ), super easy to install for most. Earth Day is coming up (4/22) so if you're not in a hurry you might find some good deals later in April, but I thought this was a good deal so I posted it. About time I give back to the SD community!
I have no idea if my link works for you guys or if the price is for everyone, so I added YMMV in the title. Hope someone else can benefit as well!
EDIT 2/22 11AM PST: Seems like it's a pretty huge YMMV as many are seeing the $40 price. As JimB suggested, you might want to try different stores in your area to see if they have the lower price. Also just looked at the packaging and it states that the light also "works in damp areas" - so I assume these would work just fine in bathrooms as well.
I'm also seeing a lot of self-professed lighting "newbies" posting so just some quick info - these are meant to screw into an existing recessed lighting can with a 6" (or even 5") diameter. You unscrew the old bulb, you remove the trim piece and then screw this product in. It is MUCH more efficient than incandescent or halogen bulbs - so money well spent IMHO (one poster noted a bit over a year to recoup money), but only slightly more efficient than CFL bulbs (based on my research) - so not sure if it makes financial sense if you are replacing those.
Anyway, hope more can find deals at their local HD if you want these.
