Have you checked your local. These were avaiable at Sleaford Homebase as well. Possibly a national reduction.
Homebase also have 10 LED GU10's for £10. Certainly more expensive than this but the running costs will be much reduced (as will be the heat output)
40w ???? Cold for me
Led 3w from Screwfix 0.99p each

Don't be ridiculous. We still have gas lamps.

Has to be LED really nowadays.
Cheap, but probably hit you with the electricity bills compared to low powered led
Sorry for asking.. But can you use LED GU10 bulbs in any fitting or must I change the fitting to allow this?
Nationwide. Got some in hexham and newcastle weeks ago.

If you have a light fitting which requires GU10 light bulbs then it doesn’t matter if they are Halogen or LED they will all fit. Hope that helps.
I had the last 2 packs from Castle Marina Nottingham yesterday.... still lots of other multipack and single ones on offer...small screw Philips round and candle were 25p and 50p , bayonet were 50p and 4 packs of screw spotlight bulbs were £1... lots left yesterday.

Agree. With the price of LEDs so cheap these days, halogen shouldn't be an option.
STOP!!

People please buy LED bulbs not these!! I'll shut up now
Halogen? £1 now then lose all the savings once you switch them on. Brilliant.

Good deal. Very cheap. Depending on how often they are used then it's unlikely you will lose money through extra costs of running. However if you use the lights a lot then yes get the LEDs which equivalent ones in homebase are 15 times more.
doesnt matter how cheap you can buy halogen there just is no point in this day and age as led is much better and cheaper to run
I've been using the Poundland LED GU10 bulbs and they are fine. It's worth trying a few of them.
Not everyone can tolerate leds. Causes a lot of headaches and migraines in some people. They flicker a 100 times a second apparently.
Cold!

Even if these were free this deal would still be cold. After a few months of usage you will have spent more on your electricity bills compared to if you had just bought LED to begin with.

How can this 'deal' have +'ve heat? If anything, it is a sure fire way to spend more money, not save! The only thing hot about this is the wasted heat energy you're paying for with these bulbs.

5W from Poundland (for £1!) - they're decent quality too.

Pretty much any GU10 fitting (some LEDs are a bit longer which can be an issue in a very few fittings but that's rare).
The 'heat' this deal is getting shows the very worrying ignorance of HUKD posters. Any saving you make will be gone in a matter of weeks - after that you're quids in with LEDs. Problem is it's the people who are least able to pay their electric bills who'll fall for this!

Thank you, I've got a small tool for doing this (with no handle) and find it really difficult to fit these lamps in my kitchen spotlight. I'll pick up one of these and hopefully it will make things a little easier.
They had mega amounts of these at my local and they were struggling to sell them at this price. Others like myself were just looking for led deals.
Hamilton and East Kilbride stores too

Ignorance - pure ignorance.

Assuming you buy ten and use all ten 7 days a week 6 hours a day the led would save you £90 on your electricity bill give or take a year.

So for those who use these bulbs in areas of the house which don't have such high usage, then if the bulb is a lot cheaper then it isn't as clear cut as you want to make out.

So take my utility room. Light is probably on no more than 20 minutes a week. So the savings on electricity of an led would equate to around £2 annually. (rounding up)
