Congratulations to Nathan H. of Layton, Utah, for winning a SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive in last week's giveaway. This week's prize should help light up your life. It's a pack of 12 LED light bulbs from Cree, a purveyor of residential LEDs for North American consumers.

The bulbs you'll get, a new addition to Cree's lineup, look like a familiar incandescent bulb, but offer better brightness and dimming performance than their predecessor, according to CNET reviewer Ry Crist . This high-power LED bulb has what Cree's calling 4Flow technology, meaning it ditches the heat sinks in favor of a convection-based build to keep the bulbs cool. The bulbs come in 40W and 60W replacement varieties and cost $7.97 apiece. You can choose whichever 12 work best for you.

So what do you have to do to to win almost $100 worth of new LED lightbulbs? There are a few rules, so please turn up the lights and read carefully.
