*Consumer Comment: Bright Effects light bulbs

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I bought a four pack of Bright Effects brand fluorescent bulbs from Lowe's.

The first bulb I took out of the package was dead, did not work. I've been here before with GE and Phillips lighting companies. These bulbs are not saving me money! I have replaced probably 10 not working, burned out bulbs this year.

I have saved all reciepts, packages,and actually marked the bulbs. I have contacted GE and Phillips about their bulbs not lasting. They want me to send the bulbs to them. As of today, I am unable to contact Bright Effects. I will try to return them to Lowes.

Maybe Al Gore could check into this rip-off.

Bright Effects light bulbs

AUTHOR: Bobithacany - (U.S.A.)

It is true that Bright Effects light bulbs do not last as long as they used to.

I have never had a dead bulb out of the package.

Compared to Utilitech Bulbs that Lowes is now promoting, Bright Effects is much better.

I refuse to purchase Utiltech Light Bulbs. These bulbs do burn out quickly, the brightness is not near as good as Bright Effects and I have had dead bulbs from them.

I have brought this to attention of Lowes with no changes happening.

I believe this to be a pricing issue for not changing.
