Voted hot but still expensive
Still £150,........... Thats a lot of sovs for 3 bulbs
I won't vote either-way, but if I had to, I would vote cold.

A deal isn't just about you getting it cheaper than the RRP or rip off prices that normally are. Its about value for money too and Philips with GU10 is a complete con.
Not sure on the phrasing of this deal. Is it 25% off, 4 for 3 or both? I suspect it's just 4 for 3, which makes the 25% off misleading. I can't buy 5 and still get 25% off.

LOL yup, £50 each or 4 for £150 for lightbulbs is crazy.

I have to buy remote control gu10 bulbs for one of our rooms as can't have a light switch in bedroom our autistic child sleeps in otherwise he just spends entire night turning it on and off. But I buy ones that come with a remote and get 3 for under a tenner. And they last for years "current lot have been going for about 4 years I think".

Surely value for money is a personal point of view.
I would have thought getting something cheaper than RRP or getting more whilst paying for less is exactly what a deal is. A Rolex Watch costs thousands, whereas you can pick up a Cassio for less than £10 - both tell the time, so why bother buying a Rolex?....
I personally have a few of these bulbs and think they are great. And to be able to get 4 packs of something for the usual price of 3 is a deal.
The Hue bulbs get a bad reception on here, and 99% of the people moaning about their cost or stating that they are a waste of money, do not actually own any.
Yes, they are expensive. But then so is Pepsi/Coke against supermarket brand Cola, yet those companies seem to do ok.
If you don’t want these bulbs then that’s fine, don’t buy them.
This is not meant as any disrespect or attack on Abbadon, but it’s always the same comments on Hue products, because some people think they are ‘over priced’.
I own lots of hue bulbs & switches, doesn’t mean I don’t think Hue are overpriced.

And yes it is a personal decision and point of view, but I’m guessing the majority agree this isn’t much of a deal hence the heat given, and you get a lot of posts on Hue deals not from necessarily people who don’t see the value in the product or want them, but from consumers who do want them but know they’re being ripped off and want them cheaper.

Once again I will vote with my wallet until Hue bring the GU10 down to respectable level. They know most people ordering these need them in bulk.

To be fair I think you have to take into account the criminally overpriced RRP of Hue stuff . The RRP is at least three times that of equivalent bulbs by other manufacturers so 25% off is still a bad deal IMO .

Of course folks swear these are so much better than, say , Osram (at a quarter the price ) but I suppose they have to - or admit they were a mug for being "fleeced " by Hue in the first place , and HUKD members find it hard to admit they jumped too quick to have the "in thing " .

However ,each to their own - at less than £20 a bulb it could be a deal but any more and they are surely having a laugh at the buyers expense . Shows that smooth targeted marketing still works .
I think that Hue bulbs are expensive yes, but not necessarily overpriced. They offer a product that is better than any of the equivocal products, hence the premium price tag.

People won’t vote hot on this, as the initial product is expensive. But you are still getting 4 of these bulb packs for the price of 3. If you brought 4 of the same packs, that’s a 25% saving. If you would have ordered 4 packs last week, it would have cost you more.

I understand what you are saying, but 25% off of any product is a deal and shouldn’t be voted down (unless you can show a deal for the same product which is better) just because you think the initial product costs too much.

There’s a difference between overpriced and expensive. If the RRP was overpriced, then Philips would have dropped it by now - these bulbs have been around for years. If the product sells, why would they drop the price.

People swear by them because they believe in the product. They say the cheaper ‘equivalent’ doesn’t work as well because it simply doesn’t. If you want to buy the cheaper product, then do so. It lights a room, but doesn’t have the same functions as the Hue bulbs, but if that doesn’t matter to you, then fair enough.

I’ve brought various Hue bulbs, but have never felt fleeced. And for you to to insinuate that I’m a mug for purchasing these bulbs...

The point of this website is to inform users of deals available on a wide range of products. This is the cheapest way at the moment to get 4 packs of these bulbs. Unless you can show me a better deal at the moment on Hue bulbs.

There’s loads of deals posted on this website everyday, the vast majority which I have absolutely no interest in, whether that be because I don’t want/need the product or because I think that the price is expensive. But I don’t go on to each deal and state that I can buy Smart Price Barbecue Sauce for less, or that it’s cheaper to get a HP deal on a Ford instead of the Audi that’s been posted.

I think you'd find that you're wrong about 99% of moaners not owning any Hue kit. I own plenty. I'm always on the lookout for a deal. But considering the past 3 for 2 offers, this switch to 3 for 4 is cynical and measly and deserves all the cold votes it's getting.

And that’s fair enough, your voting this as cold because there’s been better deals on the Hue lights in the past (and I agree, this isn’t the best deal they’ve offered and I won’t be buying during this one, even though I’m after 7 GU10 bulbs and 2 dimmers). I’ll wait until there’s a 3 for 2 again.

From what I recall, the last 3 for 2 offer was around Black Friday (I may be wrong?), which was around 3 months ago. Is there a better deal around on these at the moment?

And others are voting this cold because they think the Hue lights are overpriced, nothing to do with the offer (which, again works out at 25% off, although the 3 for 2 is effectively 33% off). They would still vote it cold even if it was 3 for 2 because, evidently, we are ‘mugs’ that are being ‘fleeced’.

You can buy other brands of smart bulbs which cost less than the Philips Hue ones, even when the 3 for 2 offer is on. So why do you chose to pay more for the Philips bulbs?

And for what it’s worth, I haven’t actually voted either way on this deal, as I agree that the 4 for 3 isn’t the best deal they have done on these, but it is a deal on the RRP none the less.


I just find it frustrating and narrow-minded when you get the Hue-haters marking deals cold because they think the product’s RRP is over-priced, or you can get a different brand of smart bulb cheaper, or you could just buy a normal bulb and use a light switch.

Are people entitled to their opinions, of course. Should people mark deals that people have gone to the effort of posting as cold purely because they don’t want/like the product, or have views over its value? I don’t think they should.

@ WhatsThatSmell

I can see your point but my problem is I can't really understand it, "premium" lightbulbs just don't compute for me and I am guessing the same is true for a lot of people.

Yes I make brand choices when making many of my purchases, but those are for things that matter to me and that I feel the premium I pay is worthwhile. In the case of bulbs though my brain simply rejects the idea that £50 each is a fair price.
