Kmart has a bright idea for consumers who are looking for more economical ways to deck out their Christmas tree and create a stunning light display outside their home this holiday season. During the week of Nov. 16, Kmart shoppers can purchase a 50-count package of indoor/outdoor LED lights for just $5.99. That's 40% off the regular price of $9.99.
The Benefits of LED Lights
LED is the newest technology for holiday lights and a long way from the days of the large, old-fashioned C-7 and C-9 lights that used 125 to 250 watts per strand and threw off a significant amount of heat.
-- LED string lighting uses approximately 70% less power than traditional super bright sets.
-- The LED bulbs are cool to the touch when lit
-- Bulbs have an extremely long life and strands can last more than 25 years, based on 480 hours of use per season
-- Homeowners can string together up to 43 sets of LED lights without fear of blowing a fuse. That means far fewer extension cords are required for outdoor lighting displays.
