Noel Leeming have Colour Hue bulbs at $62.99 with their Boxing Day specials.

 

I'm tempted to take that to Bunnings, who are still advertising at a higher price, and see if they'll beat it by 15%.

Get there first thing since they will update the shelf price with an orange tag that is a few cents under the competitions price to avoid matching. Also dont be suprised if they decide that the number you want to buy is too many and would be trade quantity. They did that to me with downlights that were way cheaper somewhere else (also a philips item) and would only let me get one rooms worth basically.

 

Then go next door to mitre10 and get some more of them.

I'm not too worried about the additional 15% because the 30% discount already seems like a good deal. Even without the 15% extra I would rather buy them from Bunnings and/or Mitre10 because Noel Leeming are cowboys.

 

I'm looking to get an extra bulb for the bathroom, a motion sensor and possibly a tap switch.
