800, 1000, and 1400 lumen versions. Warm and cool white, E27 and bayonet fitting. Probably needs to use their cards. Not sure if it's just Johnsonville or nationwide. You can log into their website and check your local store.


I bought some for $13.60 each at Miter Ten yesterday! I stocked up today. The 1400 lumen LEDs seem brighter than 1400 lumen CFLs, maybe just because they're newer.

Neat; I didn't even know that 1400 existed (I once tried a 1055 in a spacious room with typical 70s single-fitting arrangement and it was too dark) so picked up a couple of 1400s. I can confirm that this is not limited to Johnsonville and does not require a membership card. Thanks for posting :)

Four of the 1400s light my medium sized kitchen very well. I got some 800s for the dining area.

Philips? I can only see Olsent bulbs online, or are they simply an OEM bulb made by Philips?

The ones I picked up today are definitely Philips, and I can see plenty when I do a search for "philips led" (although the cheap price doesn't show up).

I don't think Kilbirnie has Olsent. Maybe some Lower North Island??? Countdown are substituting Philips instead.

 

Edit. Mailer showing "any 2 for $16 806/1050/1400lm Philips LED" website just hasn't caught up.

I can't see them either, as I would also be keen on the 1400 lm ones. I wonder if it has expired because I think their deals start on the monday of the week.
