Bulb Center Review

To help you find the Best Light Bulbs, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth Bulb Center Review.

To see ALL of our reviews for the Best Light Bulbs, please Click Here

No matter how you choose to illuminate your home or office - striking floor lamps, simple pendant fixtures, functional desk lamps - you'll need light bulbs to get the job done. From basic room lighting to appliances like refrigerators and dryers, light bulbs can be found everywhere.

However, finding the right light bulbs at great prices can be challenging. Local big-box retailers may not carry the more specialized bulbs, especially LED bulbs, needed for some of today's modern appliances and fixtures. This forces shoppers to spend more time and money driving around town looking for the product they need.

Bulb Center

BULB CENTER Visit Site

From light bulbs to LED fixtures and string lights, Bulb Center wants to be your one-stop-shop for your lighting needs.

With only seven brands in their inventory, Bulb Center comes up a bit short in terms of selection; however, they were one of only a small number of stores we surveyed that carry recognized brand names like GE and Philips. Also, the number of light bulbs within those brands that they carry - over 1,000 - is more than several other retailers.

The site is well-organized and easy to navigate. The main page allows you to sort bulbs by technology, such as incandescent and halogen, and shows several pictures to help you recognize the type of light bulb you need. Once you've selected the type of bulb, you can further narrow down the results according to a specific variety. For instance, when you select LED bulbs, you get another drop-down menu that includes fifteen subcategories, from Christmas lights and other decorative products to standard shape LED bulbs.

Bulb Center ships all orders over $49 for free, while charging a flat rate of $5.99 for all others. This is comparable with most of the reputable retailers of light bulbs in our review. Their return policy is also similar to their competitors: returns of unused items are accepted within 30 days of purchase and must be authorized prior to shipping to the company.

One feature we would have liked to see is a price match guarantee. Most of the top-rated retailers in our review do offer that advantage to their customers, and in a market where there isn't usually a big difference in pricing (compared with furniture or other large-ticket items), it would help Bulb Center compete more effectively with other stores.

However, Bulb Center already has an impressive average of 9.1/10 over 111 reviews on Trustpilot; customers frequently praise the speed of shipping, pleasant resolution of any issues with damaged or inaccurate orders, and are very satisfied with their light bulb purchase.

Bulb Center earns good marks for their wide selection of light bulbs and obvious attention to customer satisfaction; that rating would easily increase with a low-price guarantee that would match what many of their competitors already offer.

Fortunately, online light bulb shopping makes it incredibly easy to find every possible type of light bulb and have them delivered directly to your residence or business with just a few clicks of the mouse. And, because most online retailers don't have the same overhead costs of brick-and-mortar stores, you can easily get lower prices for light bulbs than what you would at local retailers. It's a win-win for you, the customer!

When you shop online for light bulbs, there are several key points to consider as you compare one retailer to another. Some of these include:

  • Selection. For the bulbs you need, does the store carry multiple brands from which to choose? Do they sell specialty bulbs for appliances and other fixtures, or just the basic lamp and light fixture varieties?
  • Pricing. Does the store sell light bulbs for less money than you'd find at your local stores? Are they competitive with other online retailers? Also, will you have to pay more in shipping than the bulbs actually cost, or is shipping free?
  • Return Policy. If you get the wrong bulbs, or you are dissatisfied for some other reason, can you return them? Is there a fee for doing so?
  • Customer Service. Does the store have a good reputation for making customers happy?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Light Bulb Stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find the exact bulbs you need to light up your home or office space - at a great price!
