Argos currently have the Philips Hue GU10 bulb reduced to £44 each from £49, however they are also running a three for two deal which brings the cost of three bulbs down to £88 or £29.33 per bulb.

Cheaper then the current Amazon deal.

edit added.....

You also get a £5 off £50 spend voucher (see down thread), thus bringing the effective price down to £83 or £27.66 per bulb

The edit is wrong it’s not £83 the voucher is for a different purchase.

These are bigger than standard so probably won't fit

Why not buy one from Amazon, see if it fits, then back it under the 30 day rule?

They won’t fit but in fairness if you don’t mind a bit of light electrical work, just change out the spot holders. I bought ones on amazon for £2 a piece that were flush with the ceiling but had no inside case meaning the larger hue bulbs will fit no problem as long as the ceiling cavity is big enough

Double Bubble?


Double bubble in this instance is when you get two overlapping offers......

The original £5 off and the buy two get one free...thus double bubble.

However I've now found that this deal is actually a triple bubble.....

As well as getting the deal above it also entitles you to a £5 off £50 spend voucher from Argos.

So in effect you're getting these bulbs for £83 rather then £88

It’s not in effect £83, you get a voucher for £5 off something else, you still have to pay (at least) £88.

This makes the deal wrong and should be edited.

How do these compare to the richer colour bulbs? I've heard the green is poor in comparison. Is their a v2 due soon? There seems to be a lot of deals on these recently, could they be selling them off to make way for a newer richer colour bulb?

I'm waiting for the next version or will jump for the IKEA non-colour ones. Good price compared to normal though!


I disagree with that.

We have 10 of these in our Kitchen and they throw plenty of light IMHO.

One thing I will say about the Ikea ones from experience is you can't get them dim enough, we have a dining room adjoining the kitchen and had to turn the kitchen lights off rather then dim right down to set the mood, the colour ones work much better for us.

Double Bubble is a slang phrase related to work and pay. Generally used to describe getting paid double time for working overtime. Heard it used all the time when I worked on the factory shop floor years ago.

Never heard it used to describe multiple offers on a product. Doesn't make sense.

I have the same problem with these Hue bulbs in our lounge. They are quite bright still at 1%. Sliding the brightness down from 20% to 1% makes barely any noticeable difference.

It's a common phrase with many uses and meanings.

They fit fine in mine and I have standard fittings. Bulbs are a bit taller than a regular GU10 bulb so check height clearance.

The GU10 have been richer colour for about 2 years, you would be very unlucky to buy new sealed product from a retailer and they not be the new version. ebay yes however a lot of the old ones knocking about.

Its used in many ways, work and pay is one of them
when I worked in retail for many years it was often a way of describing offers (admittaidly sometimes only internally to staff briefings) in much the same way as this offer, "buy 3 for the price of 2, plus 10% off everything in store" for example was a double bubble offer.
Currently £31.97 on Amazon each which I know isn't quite as good a deal but if you are only looking for only 1 or 2 bulbs or have some Amazon vouchers to spend its still a great deal

Are you sure? What I've read is that the GU10's are not richer colour and that the greens are more like a dirty yellow.

Depends on the fitting. If the fitting is a fixed depth with a recessed socket. These may stick out a bit.
If the fitting has a removable plate you clip the bulb into the attach a loose cabled fitting to the pins the. You’ll be fine.

Same here. I bought a load of GU10s a few months ago from Amazon and they all have the dirty yellow.

And I haven't seen any GU10s sold anywhere that are described as "Richer Colour"...

Yeah, same thing I'm seeing everywhere online, there isn't a GU10 in richer colour at the moment.

Apart from the poor greens, how do you find them? Do you think they're worth getting at this price? I reckon if they release a richer colour version it'll probably sit at £50 for good while (same as these have), so these might be worth getting in the meantime.

I have 12 of these GU10s (4 in kitchen, 3 in lounge, 3 in ensuite, 2 in cloakroom). They're good - I'm not using them for ambilight or anything like that so the colour accuracy isn't important to me.

My only gripe is that they don't go very dim even at 1%. Definitely a lot brighter than the E27/B22 bulbs and all of the Hue lamps that I have. For kitchens and bathrooms it's not an issue, but in the lounge I find it annoying.

Personally, I wouldn't bother waiting for a new version unless you need the colour accuracy e.g. ambilight. I need another 3 GU10s but I'll wait for Prime day (last time they worked out about £22 each).

Ah you may be correct, sorry , but there is definitely a generation 1 and generation 2 of the GU10 colour bulbs as I have both, I assumed my newer generation 2 was richer colour like it is on my bayonet hue bulbs

Oft, sounds like you're fully committed to the Hue life with all those bulbs! I've just got a measly 3 B22s and a couple of trådfri's. Think I'll also wait until prime day as I only need 2 GU10's so if I could get them for around £22 I'd be chuffed

The Tradfri bulbs are great in their own right (if you don't suffer from any of the numerous issues with the Tradfri gateway and system), but when using a Hue hub they have an issue where they'll alter colour/temp or they'll alter brightness, they won't alter both in the same command. No news on if/when that'll be fixed. Not an issue with the straight white bulbs though, and the GU10 white for £7 are a bargain. Keep an eye on reddit's /r/tradfri subreddit if you don't already, and are planning on using Tradfri bulbs.
Bargain. Cheaper than ebay where people are bidding on 10 bulbs and paying over £31 per bulb. Ordered 3 and get the £5 voucher too. Will use the voucher to buy another 3 bulbs. And if I get another voucher I may get a further 3. In the process of automating my house.
