This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Noticed these on offer just.

I’ve bought mine using TopCashBack rewards, so exchanged £74 and change to the digital MasterCard and got £79.99 on that (as you get an additional 6.5%).

Great buy considering a normal pair costs £27.49 when not on offer.

No this is the normal price at Argos. I am waiting for a deal on these myself.

Worth a mention that these are nice in conjunction with next time there is a £5 off for £50 spend and the £10 voucher for a £100 spend

Is the equivalent of this not 2.99 in b&m or are these better?
Still way overpriced

These are better.

These are 'smart bulbs' that require a hub to work. While they will operate like a normal bulb without the hub, they can't really be compared to the b&m ones

I think you may be mistaking these with the Philips ambiance range
Bought a set of these past week, missed out on the £5 vouchers by one day annoyingly.

Perfect for the conservatory. Need a new hub though as now bang at the 50 bulb limit (unless that's increased over last year or two?)
I love my hue bulbs, they are not overpriced when you factor in the convenience they bring, especially when paired with motion sensors. All of my family have been so impressed that they have started buying them too.
Yes they are expensive but they are very good. In essence a Dacia Sandero will be sufficient for driving, but people will still buy cars at 10x the price, this is no different. You can buy cheaper bulbs but they aren’t as good.

Bought two boxes of these when they were this price last time.
Fitted them through my back garden and the canopy at the front of my house. Now the lights turn on automatically at sunset. Dim down at midnight and turn off at sunrise, with out me ever having to do anything.
Though I also paired them the wireless Hue outdoor motion sensor so the whole garden illumines when I let the dog out.

You can get gu10 versions at IKEA for about £8. I think it’s just because Philips Hue is the brand leader but there are other names that are cheaper and, maybe with a slight faff, apparently compatible

Yeah I used quite a few of the cheaper WiFi options and well, unsurprisingly with that many devices connected my WiFi performed like I was still using dial up. Which is why I’m swapping over to the zigbee ones.

I’ve got the Ikea cool>warm white ones in the kitchen, they work well and with minimal faffing got them hooked up to the hue bridge. They just don’t have the dimming range that the hue ones do, true that be told probably doesn’t make that much difference but for and extra £1 odd a bulb makes me happy

The IKEA range are absolutely shite. If you knew anything about smart lights, you'd know there's no comparison between the two.

Nothing comes close to Hue, currently.

I have both and have retired the last of the TRÅDFRI bulbs now. They are probably best for someone starting out in smart lighting as it’s not such a horrendous outlay as actual Philips Hue

Can you list some differences please? I was considering the IKEA options

They fail, a lot. Just check out the reviews. I've had Hue in every room in two different properties and not one bulb has failed in over a year.
Fail in software (need reconnecting etc) or just die altogether?

I ask because I wouldn't be using the IKEA hub.

Both. Just check the reviews on their own site.
Anyone near Bangor NI, I have bought 8 and only need 4 so trying to sell the other 4 for £40.

I used the also Ikea ones with the Philips hue hub (using an app called Hue Lights to force the connection). I’ve had no issues with connectivity since, however when I was using the Ikea hub I had plenty of software failures
Good to know. I'm hoping to roll my own ZigBee hub so it's useful to know where exactly the failures are.
