Hi
Thanks for posting. It is good practice to also add the merchant and price to the title. I'm pretty sure Glasgow is a big place, although I've never been myself; so I've narrowed it down a bit by adding "Poundland" to the title Emmajk42 / Juliet_Bravo wrote a couple of very comprehensive and excellent guides to HUKD here: - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/145906/newcomers-advice-on-hotukdeals-gene/

They are well worth taking a look at.
Again, thanks for posting.
Kind regards Andy

Kill the planet even quicker for only £1. Cold.

Just to let you know what the current EU regulations are regarding lightbulbs: From September 2009 Retailers will no longer be able to purchase 100W or above standard lightbulbs either from their own country or on imports. But they are allowed to sell through their remaining stock which is good. Be warned, the 60W lightbulb is going to be the next victim in the next 18 months. GE are already slowing production on these.

I thought it was illegal to sell these from 1st September?

100 what? Pounds? Naaaahh...

The 100w ones I saw today were not Poundlands usual cheapo brand of lightbulbs, looked like they have taken a warehouse full off someones hands before the ban comes into place.

lol, you're obviously one of those poor deluded souls that thinks carbon dioxide is a dangerous greenhouse gas, it isn't. CFLs are full of mercury and when millions of them end up in landfill you'll find out then what's really killing the planet.

These are HOT!!!

THANK YOU!. Voted hot!.

It's not illegal for shops to sell them but I think they can no longer be imported for sale. So when they're gone they're gone.

Yeah, me too. Thought I'd save a few pennies and fitted three. 2 weeks later, one exploded all over me. I was NOT happy! I avoid delicate items like them from now on regardless of the price.

PLEASE NOTE. HUMANS WILL NOT KILL THE PLANET WITH GLOBAL WARMING. THE PLANET WILL SURVIVE AND HAS BEEN THROUGH WORSE.

Just all living things may die off for while (incl humans)

and its methane which is the worse as its 20+x denser than carbon dixode. So really you should be saying to peopel who eat beef burgers. YOUR KILLING THE PLANET as cows produce over 500litres of methane per day

We need to connect the cows to the gas grid.

if your not that familiar on submitting deals its easy to get wrong , ive got it wrong before , when i did what options i could, we should all take time out and study that good link then just go into a quid shop and think yes bargain must share, lol then post everything on here , its hard starting out no one likes being shot down for getting it wrong , sometimes bargains need to be put on fast before theres none left time is precious and its put me off posting as i couldnt find the retailer , ill read you guides TY
#26
Cold, definitely cold. These consume too much electricity, and the light is not white, its more yellow. Use 3 energy saving ones instead.

[SIZE="5"]Wickes have 5 energy saving ones for 49p[/SIZE], 100w and 60w equivalents. Hot voters slap yourself.
#27
What is the 100W equivalent of an energy saving bulb.. I man what Watts is that rated at ?

Btw, doesn't everyone use fluorescent TUBE lights these days?

Whatever you need to tell yourself to hide the fear of change I guess, My dimmable energy savers light up the place very nicely and match a regular bulb anyday with the obvious energy saving benefits, and certainly not dim like certain mentionable persons
#30
This is another case of panic measures without a viable alternative. The energy saving light bulbs are awful let's face it. They take an age to come on and give a much duller yellower light and they contain a small amount of mercury and no amount of that is good for you.. I'm all for saving the planet but this decision has been made (as always) before we have a viable safer alternative. You only have to look at the victimisation of car drivers and the fact that our public transport system is as unreliable and expensive as it is. But the Government now think that they have done their bit.

Oh by the way...you had better read this BBC News article of how exactly you should dispose of a broken energy saving lightbulb. Do we really think local councils will be geared up for this and the majority of people will follow this routine? Removing one problem and creating another?

They take 5 minutes to get to full brightness so you fall down the stairs or wait, by which time they've used as much electricity as a proper light bulb....and they're full of mercury. Wake up you eco-sheepie.

Scary!

Anyway I will try get these as I need to replace all my energy saving bulbs and some are dying - and here's how I will try do this for free sneakily (having chucked away all the old 'higher' energy bulbs).

I have a 'free' cavity wall/loft insulation guy coming tomorrow (free cos I am on dole). If all the light fittings have old style bulbs - he will off load replacement low energy bulbs for the whole house! Save a few pennies - and can keep the 100w bulbs listed for target practice or to line the garden walls!

Heat!

Whatever level you want to argue for these lightbulbs to remain in most households is flawed. Just because there is something worse, why use something that has an alternative that is better for the environment. Pointless arguement.

Ok, another person who seems to think 100W lightbulbs are fine when there are alternatives which use less electricity. ANother stupid point made, 'Just all living things may die off' I was under the impression that was a bad thing.
#36
Wow there's a lot of eco people out there hating on classic, good, still worthy light bulbs!

The whole Global Warming thing is quite a sham... And now that there are people accepting it, it will become the new taxation system (Give thanks to Thatcher for that). It's great how we haven't really proven how current living will kill us all in the next 50-100 years yet while we were all in the industrial revolution, we were all putting out a lot dangerous "gases" and look, we're still here.

Humans have been around for a long time (4000+) and you're telling me that in our smartest age, we are letting ourselves get taken for a ride?? I know that we would of killed ourselves already if the planet was going to die from our insignificant contribution. Look at how small you are to the earth!! I'm sure dinosaurs farted plenty and they lived a good life until whatever it is that killed them and it certainly wasn't global warming.

Buying back carbon "emissions"... One day, I will tell my children that carbon "emissions" used to be free and they will look at me with shock and amazement.

Heat added. Great offer for those who need them. And don't worry eco folks, I'm sure that they are glad to pay out their "damages" to the earth via their bills.

Can't beat tube lights they are the best.

Have got some circular ones in bathroom and the light is really brilliant white and very nice. 100W are just rubbish IMO.
#38
You can get 10 philips 60w energy saving bulds from my local pound land for £1.

I got a pack last week Stamped "British Gas".

Yes they give off less light and they are not dimable but they last at least 10 times as long and use one fifth of the energy.

Speaking to a neighbour last week they spend 4 times as much on gas and electric as we do in an identical house - even relatively small changes can make a big difference if you make enough of them. Thats Over £2000 a year more they are paying in case anyone cares.

if that extra £2000 is down to bulbs do you live next to a house that is brighter than the sun? :whistling:
#40
Obviously not, cavity wall insulation, double glazing, modern boiler, loft insulation etc etc etc.

They still use 4 times as much electric though. Lighting can make up to 30% of your electric bill so an average house using only energy saving lighting could save on average up to £233 a year.

Good quality brand 10p each and you save a decent amount by using them plus help the enviroment so whats the problem ?

I have replaced the last halogen downlighters in the basement now Leds are available at a reasonable price. They last even longer and use virtually no power at all.
