Were a similar price at Asda recently. I personally think a permanent price cut is coming for Hue priducts
Was £30 at Asda
The colour kit is also on at John Lewis at a brilliant price, the colour bulbs retail upto £49 each and you get 3x such bulbs and a bridge for £111.99 at the moment from JL. Usually this package retails at £149.

Chomp and a Freddo for 20p , those were the days.
2 black jacks for a penny.

Heat because any price drop on Hue is great. However, my experience is you would be better investing in the Colour starter kit (especially as it's on offer) because you won't be satisfied with the White bulbs and end up buying colour/white ambience anyway.

Agreed. Wouldnt say you need the colour or ambience in every room though.
For me 3 colour bulbs were enough for the whole house and the rest are standard white hue bulbs

Which generation are these? I'm a noob but read something about richer colours.
I've bought a Hue set up due to previous deals on here however the Hue app on iOS is currently constantly crashing. Anyone wanting an ES to bayonet type fitting can get the adapters in IKEA or Bunnings warehouse cheaply though of course I make the light bulb slightly longer.

Well, I for one will wait and see if it's that cheap again.

Those are the latest ones with John Lewis. You are right there are different generation ones and it can be confusing, especially market place sellers on Amazon. As far as I know all the major re sellers only sell the latest generation ones, i.e. Argos, John Lewis etc.

Agreed the colour starter kit is better value.
But there are cases where the other bulbs are fine.
In my lounge I use colour as thats where I benifit the most from colour
In the bedroom I use white ambience to simulate sunrise on a dimmed in/out timer in the morning (especially for winter)
In the hall i use the standard white as I just need it on or dimmed as a night light.
If money was no object of course I'd have them all as colour!
I have the colour ones in three rooms and there brill though the novelty of changing them does wear off quickly and is mostly used as a party piece when guests are here. I think whites would be fine for most rooms. This is a decent deal.
Is it realistic to think you could sell the bridge on its own for £30?

I've sold before on ebay for just under £40, so yep even taking into fees you will clear £30
If you are not feeling confident then CEX will buy it for £22 cash uk.webuy.com/pro…E2A

That's worth its own post. Cheapest I've seen
Works fantastically with Alexa!
Want these to pair with my google home automation build, but its a shame the GU10 bulbs are so expensive. Nothing in my home is bayonet fitting
