PHILIPS BAYONET FIT ENERGY SAVING LIGHT BULBS 40WATT EQUIVALENT
Rated 8 years.

10p each buy 4 save 16p = 24p for four...

Not sure if this is a national offer/misprice but just got back from my local Morrisons in FISHPONDS BRISTOL and found this.

There was no price on the shelf but came out at 10p per bulb at the till which is already cheap as chips but when I checked my receipt they gave me an additional 16p off for every 4 bulbs making them only 6p!!

NOTE. this price was only for the bayonet fit and not screw-fit type.

First post, Hope its in your local too... Good luck and Go green!! =0)

Fantastic price. I know not of any morrisons near me but it makes me chuckle to think I've been using these bulbs since they were first marketed and cost me about £20 each!
#2
Tesco still have them for 1p ...In France last week they worked out at about £4 each

in France and Belgium (and probably some other countries in the continent too), it's forbidden to sell stock at a loss (minimum price is the price the retailer ordered in the goods)

surely TESCO and MORRISON'S must lose money on these bulbs (?) probably to lure shoppers to the store?
#4
They lose money on lots of items its called loss leaders to get people in the stores.
#5
I was told in Tesco when I bought my 1p bulbs that they were selling them for that price because the box states 6 year life - but most of these bulbs dont give the same light after a a few years as they get dim
#6
great price but I have some of the 40watt-equivalent ones and find them really quite dark... even after they've had time to warm up... ok for bedside lamps but not for main room lights, really...
#7
The ones at Tesco are discontinued as they never sold at the previous price, quite why they put them so low I am not sure but heh. If you bought some before they were reduced return them within 28 days for your money back. Somebody returned 48 to our store the other day! :P

I'd like to know how they can sell them so cheap as well? I am speculating here but I can't help but think it is some government subsidised energy saving scheme and us tax payers are really footing the bill and Tesco is making millions from the deal :whistling:

The real reason that Tesco are selling them for 1p is to actually make a profit!

How can this be I hear you say?, well................... It's quite clever on Tesco's behalf.

The Government has agreed a Scheme with retailers in a bid to get people to switch to Energy saving light bulbs for obvious environmental reasons.

For every Energy saving light bulb that the retailer sells the government will pay them, lets say £1.30
If the retailer is buying these for approx 30p from the manufacturer and selling to us for 1p, as they say, do the math.

£1.01 profit for each bulb sold.:whistling:

Clever eh. Tesco were obviously first out of the starting blocks. Now Morrisons has caught on. Watch out for 2p bulbs at Asda soon:thumbsup:

Yoda you are, and my £5 I claim.

A member of Tesco staff told me that from April this year all energy saving bulbs have to have a 10,000 hour life span and the ones that they are selling off cheap only have 6,000 hours. Didnt make any difference to me as when I got there they had all gone :-(
#12
Hmmm, for the 4,000 extra hours I might wait and buy the £4 ones ;)

I am really surprised about the 'equivalent power rating' the manufacturers quote on the boxes of these low-energy lamps. Figures that, to me, are vastly wide of the mark. I am suspicious and curious of the measurement technique they use. I find a 100W (eqv.) low-energy device looks significantly less bright than an incandescent 60W.

Mercury! No thanks.

Tesco still have them for 1p


Had an awful experience with Tescos over this yesterday! Had met a friend in Tescos as I was walking around and we both spotted this deal, so thought it couldn't be bad! Went to pay, were at separate checkouts one lane apart and happily chatting to each other, when told we couldn't have the lightbulbs as they were restricted to 4 per customer. We had four each, but apparently we were 'shopping together', so after a flaming row with the manager we were deprived of 4 lightbulbs! Definatly would not recommend.

Email head office and complain - you may end up with some vouchers

Typical of the arrogant way in which Tesco now tends to handle its customers. They seem to be so big now that they take the line that we need Tesco more than Tesco needs us.

Cast your mind back a few years - do you remember when M & S took a similar approach, and its sales collapsed as a result, with the share price dropping like a stone?

Shop elsewhere - show Tesco who really needs whom the most!

Wow, that's shocking Lyn. So, you and your friend are actually siamese twins, huh? :P I'd definitely complain.

I hate to put a dampener on this, ostensibly, good deal.

I bought these bulbs and have installed them throughout the house around 3 weeks ago and....well....they smell bad.....

Seriously, they give off this awful chemical odour when they're switched on and I've had to change them since I don't want to be breathing it in.

I thought that it might have been the 'new' smell, but it hasn't gone away in the 3 weeks that I use them.

Otherwise, they're good bulbs - really bright, quick to switch on.

Just....stinky....

I bought these phillips lamps from morrisons when they were 25p

They work really well, good light, small size, no smell from mine

bargain - hot ! :thumbsup:
#21
My experience of this model was that 4 out of the 5 we bought lasted less than 4 months.

Maybe Philips knows this and have off loaded them cheaply as these have been available before for 39p.

Saying that 6p isnt a bad cost for a bulp that may or may not last 6 months.

Philips have released a newer version of the bulbs and can be picked up for £2 at homebase etc. but isnt it strange that these bulbs can be found for 30p, 6p and 1p especially if they last 6 to 8 years.

Was disappointed to miss out on Tesco's so really chuffed to get these.Thank you very much :)
