    Cheap Halogen Bulbs

    I need some GU10 halogen bulbs, last time I bought a pack of 25 from Screwfix for £9.99 (thanks to a deal on here!) The same pack is now £29.99 and the cheapest I can find for single ones in £1.75 for the Tesco Value ones

    The ones I have got now are 50W which I like.

    So where do you lot get them, please?

    Thanks x

    im not sure if theyre 50w...they had other packs and i asked my o/h if theyre the ones for our lights and he said yes, some were packs of 2

    Thanks for the replies guys

    I am in London so have no Home Bargains near me. Toolstation don't have the bulbs on their site, only the LED ones but I have a store down the road (apparently LOL!) so will have a check one day.
    I have a 99p stores right by me so have asked my Mum to check there for me, will see if they are any good

    Same problem here - I ended up getting them cheap off ebay. I used the company selling these ones 260711078789 and they were quick as well as secruely packaged.

    Are LED GU10 bulbs not better, although they are more expensive to buy but cheaper in the long run?

    They may be better in the long run but they are about 3/4 times the price of the standard GU10's and as the lighte they give off looks different you would need to replace them all at the same time (and we have 13 bulbs downstairs)
