Found this deal at Robert Dyas a couple of days ago. Also on page 5 of their 'Up to 1/2 price Sale' leaflet. They had this same offer on a few months ago.

Buy any 3 Philips Energy saver bulbs for 99p.

Can mix and match any type of bulb (8w, 11w, 14w, 18w) and available in both bayonet or screw cap.

Normally £1.29 each!

Offer is available in store. Can't seem to find it on their website.

I already have all my lights on energy savers, but bought a few spares anyway. Hope someone may find this useful. Have not seen it posted yet and it's my first post!

Just add 3 on the website and it says that it drops to £1 but it doesn't LOL,.

Nope - doesn't work for me either!

:xYou Can Now Pick These Lamps Up Really Cheap Cos They Are So Big N Ugly!!!the Spiral Range Available Are So Much Better And Quick Start,

Was going to get his, but need someting around 40 w at least. 18w is way too crasy low, your room be dark, maybe for a cupboard or something

on the website basket it says "buy 3 for £1", but just a waist of time

Who buys these bulbs anyway? I dont use them myself, but have drawers full of them - freebies from all over the place, so surprised people have to pay for them..

These are energy efficient light bulbs :whistling: they're far more efficient than ordinary bulbs i.e. put out much less wasted energy, such as heat., and a greater percentage of light energy. That's why they're much cooler to the touch than regular bulbs.

An 18W energy saving light bulb is equivalent to a 60W bulb, suitable for most small-moderate rooms and lamps. They also last much, much longer so don't need replaced anywhere near as often as well as, obviously, saving electricity and money. ]More info here...

Ordinary bulbs / Energy saving equivalent
25W / 6W
40W / 8-11W
60W / 13-18W
100W / 20-25W

The Philips bulbs are the best ones of the ones I've used. Morrisons were doing 3 for £1 on these bulbs recently.

We've been getting these Philips energy saver light bulbs free in the post for the past couple of weeks. We must have about 10 in the kitchen cupboard now lol. Agreed that they are not the most prettiest of things but they do last ages. Great for using in a porch, loo or in an outside light or garage. The ones we have have been in for a couple of years and are still going strong.

Got these in at home at the moment, the light they give off is so dismal and bleary it is like living in a squat/crack den but without the looming uneasiness of eviction/crack.

I suggest you get a dog or dogs to roam around your house randomly doing their business wherever they like and pop into your local gypsy caravan park and suggest you will be giving away free cider and chicken wings on a nightly basis.....................before you know it you will have an authentic squat environment lol


seriously though, buy the spiral bulbs from tesco, they are £1 at the mo and sooooooooo much better than these :roll:

Seriously, if your other half is a munter, or you like 'dags' you can't really go wrong with these lights...

works for me

add something like this to your basket:
robertdyas.co.uk/web…lts

Then click to view your basket, change the quantity to 3, update the basket and done - 3 for 99p

love the bulbs, save me a lot of money, got some with a 15year life on, just let them warm up and there as good as any other bulb, Im so surprised people have still got the old bulbs that blow out after less than a year. rep added

Get used to them because shortly you will be unable to purchase conventional bulbs;-);-);-);-);-);-

How much is the delivery? Is it free?

This offer is also on at morrisons, but it is not on the shelf, you have to look out for the stand/basket that the offer is in.

Hey, I'm sure this are not for everyone, but energy saver bulbs are not all the same. Agree that some cheap brands give very faint light and take ages to warm up, but not these Philips.

For those of you not familiar with these bulbs, the Philips 18w is the equivalent of a standard
100w bulb and switch on and give maximum light almost instantly.

I personally know many people that stil use standard bulbs which cost about 50p each, last
1/10th of the time and consume 5 times more electricity.

Sure is not the deal of the century, but if more people replace their old bulbs with these ones, it would certainly save them a few quids in the long run.

18W is only equivalent to a regular 60W if you refer to my "table" overleaf. The light power of 100W from an EE 18W would be quite a feat

Agree with everything else you said though.

Hooray, came back from work to find four of these on my door mat, courtesy of British Gas.

To be fair, energy saver bulbs from different or even the same brand can produce different intensity of light even if they have the same wattage.

Although the box of these Philips says that the 18w is the equivalent of a 100w incandescent bulb, the technical spec state that it gives a light output of 1100 Lumens, which is more like a
75w standard bulb. A 60w incandescent bulb has only an output of about 850 Lumens.

Anyway, I suggest people gets the ones with the highest wattage. External size is the same as the lower wattage bulbs and for only a couple of watts more you definitely get more light. And you still save loads compared to the inefficient incandescent bulbs.

Too bad I have no gas in my flat, otherwise I would be getting free bulbs as well! Maybe soon EDF will give free bulbs away as well.

bagged 30 of them for ~£15. I was willing to pay £1.30 a piece them as they last for so long. Gosh they have gone down in price
