The Home Depot’s 2013 Christmas light trade-in has come to an end.
Starting November 7, 2013 take your old incandescent Christmas light strings to The Home Depot for recycling. You’ll receive a $3, $4 or $5 discount toward the purchase of ENERGY STAR qualified LED Christmas lights. You’ll get a coupon for each string of old lights you give us. (Limit 5 redemptions per customer.)
The 2013 Christmas Light Trade-In event runs November 7 through November 17, 2013.
The coupons for your Christmas light trade-in:
- $5 off Ecosmart or Lightshow LED Christmas lights
- $4 off Martha Stewart Living or GE LED Christmas lights
- $3 off Home Accents Holiday LED lights
Switching to LED Christmas lights helps the environment and lowers your energy bill. LED holiday lights are 80 percent more energy efficient than incandescent lights. They last approximately 20 years, which is seven times longer than incandescent holiday light strings. They don’t heat up, and they’re extremely durable, too, making LED lights a safer option for Christmas decorating.
And LED technology is becoming quite advanced. The newer LED Christmas lights include types that have the same warm colors you’d expect from old incandescent lights
So gather up your old strings of incandescent Christmas lights–whether or not they still work– and head to your nearest Home Depot store to trade them in. Dump them in the Christmas light recycling box, and pick up your coupon for money off the purchase of new, energy efficient LED Christmas lights.
