Where to Buy Philips Hue Bulbs Cheap
Philips Hue is becoming more and more popular, more retailers stock a whole range of Hue Bulbs and therefore more offers and discounts can be found.
Many will know that the Hue system is an expensive gadget to add to your home, once you have a few bulbs you quickly want to change all your bulbs over to Hue bulbs.

Buying Philips Hue in Bulk
As you can see there is a range of different starter kits available depending on the bulbs you need.
Buying Refurbished Hue Bulbs
Refurbished items are a great way to save money, they are cheaper than buying brand new, and offer more protection than buying used. Refurbished Hue bulbs are used or returned products, the key thing is that they are tested before being resold, and as they are not brand new are old at a discounted rate and marked as refurbished.
You can pick up refurbished Hue Bulbs, Light strips, starter kits and switches. You really can make a good saving compared to buying brand new, and remember these have all been tested before reselling.
Refurbished Hue bulbs can be bought from Amazon and eBay.
Buying Used Hue Lights
Money can certainly be saved by buying used Hue bulbs and switches, auction sites are a great place to find users selling their bulbs.
If you are looking at buying used bulbs then you also want to make sure they are the latest versions, older generations of the bulbs are dimmer and not as good when it comes to certain colors, so you must be aware.
When it comes to smart bulbs Hue isn’t the cheapest, there are a range of alternative smart bulbs you can buy and also a range of compatible bulbs for hue that are also cheaper.
Hue Bulb Sales
Different retailers may have offers on Hue products, special sales on Hue bulbs, discounts or packages. Amazon from time to time have offered special packages that combine bulb and light strips for example at a slightly reduced rate then buying individually. Discounts can usually be found on sale days such as Black Friday, Amazon prime Day, Cyber Monday or January and winter sales for example.
Bulk Buying Philips Hue Bulbs
At the moment you can purchase bulbs in up to packs of 4 depending on the bulbs you require, these work out at better value. Offers pop up from time to time from different retailers where they may have a 3 for the price of 2 on bulbs, or a discount sale. Black Friday usually brings up discounts on the Hue range.
If you require more bulbs then an independent retailer that stocks Hue maybe the best place to go, they may be able to offer you a reduced price on your overall purchase unlike large high street stores which may not do this.
Philips have also started offering different packs and options for purchasing Hue, for example you can buy a Hue dimmer and bulb pack which would work out cheaper than buying them separately. So if you are looking at getting a Hue dimmer switch, then spend a little more and get a bulb with it too which you can use within your home.
Take some time to decide what bulbs you need and also other items such as switches or light strips. Amazon has had some great offers and discounts on and also some great offers on Alexa and Hue where if you bought an Amazon Echo it also comes with a Hue bulb too. So think about what you need and look at the best way to get this through different packs and offers.
