OAK BROOK, IL--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2015) - Ace Hardware, the largest retailer-owned hardware cooperative in the world, is making it easy for homeowners to transition to energy-efficient lighting with an exciting Buy Two, Get One Free promotion on its best-selling, longest lasting LED bulbs.* From October 16 through 18 at participating Ace stores and www.acehardware.com, consumers that buy any two select Feit LED bulbs will receive one free, allowing homeowners to mix and match to get what they need for their whole house and get over 80% in energy savings.** This special offer will also be available exclusively to Ace Rewards members, friends and family in-store with coupon during a preview sale running from October 9 through 12.

Ace Hardware is committed to supporting and educating homeowners through their lighting transition from traditional bulbs to energy-efficient alternatives. Not only do LED options offer 80% energy savings compared to traditional bulbs, they are also the most cost-effective option on the market with the average LED bulb lasting approximately 20 years when used 3 hours per day. The average homeowner would use about 25 incandescent bulbs before just one LED bulb burns out. Additional LED lighting resources, tools and tips are available at www.acehardware.com/LED.

"Getting the right LED light bulbs can be a very confusing process for many consumers, but our neighborhood Ace stores are ready to help with their award-winning service and the right selection of high-quality LED bulbs," said John Surane, Executive Vice President of Merchandising, Marketing and Sales for Ace Hardware Corporation. "We have completely reset the light bulb aisles in over 3,000 stores to offer customers the best brands and widest assortment of LED bulbs. Now, with our biggest-ever LED bulb event, we are inviting customers to visit their neighborhood Ace to take advantage of this tremendous opportunity to make the switch to energy-efficient LED bulbs and save big on their monthly energy costs." 

To further assist homeowners in navigating the switch to LED lighting, Ace's Home Expert, Lou Manfredini will host a Facebook chat on October 16 from 12-1 p.m. CDT. Visit the Ace Hardware Facebook page for more information.
