The "Philips Hue White Ambience Twin Pack A19 E27 60W" is currently 20% off, making them £20 a bulb, however they are also then in the "Buy two save 30%" deal currently running.

Meaning if you add two twin packs to your cart, you get 4 bulbs for £55.99, or £13.99 a bulb. The cheapest a single bulb has been on Amazon is £18.74!

Great if you need 4, not so great if you don't.

For the other bulbs, they've put all of the prices up for the deal. Naughty Amazon. Perhaps they're worried they're going to have to pay some tax one day?

Not a bad deal for the E27, tho, to be fair, which is what this listing is about.

Indeed they have, the colour bulbs do still work out at £29.75 each when ordering 4 under this deal (which is about the normal deal price, albeit you might not want this many bulbs!). And yes don't we all wish Amazon would pay their taxes and treat their warehouse and delivery workers properly! Then we wouldn't have to hesitate or feel guilty about using them!

Bit the bullet on prime day when I got 2 of these and a hub for £28. Plugged hub in repeatedly but dead, got my multimeter out and found power supply had no output. Refitted the 3 pin clip on part of the plug 3 times and it's worked ever since, my guess is that's why it was returned. Still madly expensive and all the rest of the lamps I'd like to swap are E14, looked up the price of those and decided I'll be using light switches for a long time yet.

Little unfair. Jeff’s parents invested $250k at the beginning in exchange for some shares. Those shares are now worth $30b so he’s clearly seen right by his folks...
Great deal - shame its just the E27's.

E14 are OFFENSIVELY EXPENSIVE right now, and I need 6 at least.....
They were 3for2 before prime day working out £12.11 per bulb. Must be costing couple of quids for Philips to make them in China.

I believe they should pay more taxes, but they're only paying what they're obliged to pay. The government needs to change the tax rules if these companies are to pay more

Good to know for comparison, but I presume that required the pruchase of 6 instead of the current 4 right?

?!? I don't understand your point. Are you saying all is morally okay, because he helped his parents get rich too?!?
Amazon is not doing anything illegal. 1000s of big companies do exactly the same..BRITISH ONES TOO!

If I could get away with paying less tax then I certainly would too!

The big cheeses in government do exactly the same thing with their expenses and second house scams not to mention the big pay packets they get from sitting on multinational company exec boards and also the extortionate fees they command for doing a one hour speech!

Normal, White Ambient or colour? I'll keep an eye out
This is a very good deal, as these are the only bulbs i would bother with.. the colours are just novelty and the whites do not get low enough.

I suspect it does cost a couple of quid to manufacturer, but then you have R&D, Wages, Shipping, Tax etc.. so when you add that up Phillips most likely make a few quid off each bulb but I suspect the split cost is more to make than than make profit, 40% profit I would guess, maybe less.

Don't they know most standard UK light fittings are bayonet?!
How long do these types of bulbs usually last for?
A few years max. or closer to 10?


Could someone please take a look at this thread and give me your opinions?

I'm after white ambient as the wife always moans cool is too blue and warm too yellow, with the ambient she can't complain. Don't see the point paying through the nose for colours that'll get used the first day and likely never again unless by accident.
Ordered! Thanks to new Ikea light fittings I’m on all E27’s for the main lights. Thanks OP!
