Nice first post.. Heat added.

I think you can get 5 of these for 40p at Tesco and Morrisons are doing 6 for 48p. Still if you only have a Sainsburys store nearby it's a good deal.

I've asked this before but could not find an answer to it. How can these new style light bulbs sell for so little? I mean, they must cost way more to make than the standart fillament type and they sold for about £1.99 for 4 the last time I looked.

60 Watt equivalent my a**e!

These low-energy bulbs aren't nearly as bright as the old expensive to run standard filament bulbs. I've been using them for about 12 (ish) years and they *are* cheaper to run and the do last longer, but I do miss being able to see clearly. The only place I prefer them to filament bulbs is in the bathroom. Because they take a minute to warm up to their full brightness, they don't blind me when I switch on the bathroom light in the middle of the night.

They actually come to 5 for 39p in Sainsburys due to the way the tills work out the VAT reductions.

Even better - good spot. :thumbsup:

Or if you are a member of your local CIU then just pop in for a pint and get some for free. I got a box of 30 from my local in County Durham. I think each club was allocated over 6,000 bulbs.

I was having a beer when the delivery truck arruived, the club secretary did not have a clue what was going on when these fellas carried on bringing box after box of lightbulbs. He was told they were free from NRG or N-power or someone,( free to give to the members. Oh and if you find a green one you win a grand or a 'green' car. :thumbsup:

(EDF - thats the one, cheers to post below, lol)

I think we are being let down gently for the big change over to these bulbs in a few years time. We won't be able to buy the old style bulbs then and no doubt these will shoot up in price then. Might as well stock up on these now while they are so cheap. Even got a load free from my energy supplier EDF. ;-)

Good deal, heat added

Thanks for the lightbulb tips. I'm after some 20W ES (100W equivalent Edison fitting CFBs) Does anyone know any offers on these?

Many thanks in advance
