HOME DEPOT old light strand trade-in program to update to LEDs

I just came back from HOME DEPOT and they just started a brief trade-in program for people wanting to get rid of old incandescent light strands and upgrade to new LED ones. The program started on 11/6 and runs thru 11/16, so if you are interested in trading in old strands and getting a credit towards the purchase of new LED lights, act quickly. Here's a photo of the promotional box I saw in the store:



$3 off Home Accents Holiday LED Lights
$4 off Marth Stewart Living or GE LED Lights
$5 off EcoSmart or Gemmy Lightshow LED Lights.--I'm wondering if this would also apply towards the Gemmy LED Lightshow spot lights and Kaleidoscope lights as well?

Bummer....not much of a deal considering how many LEDs I would need. You'd still need to pay about $7 - $10 for a box of LEDS. I read a while back about a power company that was doing a one for one swap...that I'd love to see.

It's about time the price of LEDs comes down just like everything else tied to technology.

Am I the only one who likes the old lights better? LEDs are great for some things... but some I really don't like. Maybe it's just in my area - but the Christmas LEDs only come in very harsh blue, green, and red. So all the houses look kind of the same.
Nope. you're not alone. I like the LEDs if you don't mix colors...A tree of just green or just blue is pretty awesome but you'll need a lot of lights to do it right. I just don't buy into the general "cost savings" The investment cost is much higher and I haven't figured out how to fix them when one light goes, so they're a huge pain compared to incandescent if you ask me.

The deal doesn't seem that bad if you are trying to get spotlights and looking for what amounts to a 25% discount.
