Good find. And if you don't want 3 bulbs:
PHILIPS Hue White and Colour Ambiance Mini Smart Bulb B22 Starter Kit & Google Home Mini Chalk Bundle
I have to say with all these hue deal that pop up, why can't they just do some discounted bulbs? I don't really need 5 base stations.
‘There will hopefully be some deals on prime day
Who's this Philis Hue and why are Amazon selling her for £89.99?
Fixed! Thank you
Dude! It now makes my joke look completely random
Considering buying Philips Hue but need GU10 bulbs. Approximately 10-12 in total. Waiting to see if any special deals appear on prime day.
Does anyone know the best current (non prime) deals for comparison?
Issue is I'm undecided if I want Alexa or Google home.
You have a choice of GU10 Hue bulbs. Personally I wouldn't recommend the colour version. Save money on the white ambient version (white ambient in Hue terms means adjustable white colour temperature) and use the savings to add colour elsewhere. The colour GU10s are a generation behind all other hue lights which means the colours are far less richer, especially blues and greens plus they're a tad longer than standard GU10 which can be awkward with some fittings.
I got mine in Nov 17 on a 3 for 2 deal but at the normal price of 39.99 so just under 80 quid for 6 bulbs, they're currently 33.99 for a twin pack which is much lower than when I bought mine so who knows what, if any, discounts will come, it's a rare Amazon sales event that doesn't include a fair bit of hue stuff though.
Found 8 bulbs for £80 at Argos. Plus some cashback if bought from topcadhback. Would still ha e to buy a GU10 based starter kit though.

Could just buy a Hue bridge separately in the classifieds here if that would work out cheaper.
Just be aware those bulbs are fixed white. So dimming only with no adjustment of the white temperature.
It may be exactly what you want but IMO white ambience is a bit of a game changer for me at least.
Further to my previous post there's White ambient GU10s on offer for Amazon Prime day.
It's a 3 pack for 44.99 so 15 each for white ambient. Worth the extra in my opinion.

Are there any starter kits with light strips? I need to put strips under my kitchen cabinets but dont have any of the kit currently.
