Our local Cosco had a 4 pack of 60 watt dimmable LEDs for $7 after instant utility rebate yesterday.

But I bet those are made by Feit, the modern-day Prince of Darkness. (In my experience Feit bulbs die early and often.)

Looks like I am not the only one that feels that Feit isn't exactly reliable. I thought maybe I just had bad luck but it is staring to look like it isn't a reliable brand.

I've had one FEIT LED die early thus far, but at least the company mailed a replacement without much hassle.

I have many (dozens) of Feit LED bulbs and none have failed over the years. Whether 'normal' (2700K) or daylight, flood, etc. I recommend them until catastrophic failure in a bunch of them, I guess. I also have some of their dimmer switches that are nice.

I think our Costcos have that 4-pack for $4.99

I do have several boxes of their outside party lights (non-LED) and have no issues, other than the heaviness of the wiring (=quality).

Also not much luck with CFL Feits - all had short lives. Especially three ways.
I've ended up replacing the bulb holders in a couple of table lamps from 3 way to 1 way and just put LED bulb in them.

I have the OP's 4.5 watt candelabra in a post light. I think I bought it when they were 10 bucks each. Mine is 330 lumens 4.5 watts though. Can't tell the difference with it and the 2- 40 watt incandescents that are still in there except the LED is quite a bit bigger taller. Tried Sylvania cfl in here and they didn't last a year either.
