• Everyone knows that Philips Hue makes the best and most versatile LED smart light bulbs on the market right now, but not everyone buys them and there’s a good reason for that.
  • Since Philips Hue bulbs are the best, the company charges shockingly high prices for some of its most popular light bulbs — and those prices scare many people away.
  • Philips Hue bulbs don’t go on save very often these days, but Amazon has two great deals on the company’s most popular smart LED light bulb ever, which can now be had for as little as $39.49 each instead of $50.

When it comes to smart lighting setups, there are two different types of people out there. The first group of people opts for Philips Hue, the undisputed king of anything and everything involving LED smart lighting. Philips Hue makes pretty much every different kind of smart lighting product you can imagine, and they’re extremely popular so they integrate with any other smart home gear you might have around the house.

Then there’s the second group of people, who opt for a different smart lighting brand for one main reason: Philips Hue lighting products are very expensive.

We would never begrudge anyone who falls into that second camp, and there are definitely lots of brands out there that offer smart LED lighting products that are almost as good. Nothing is truly on par with Philips Hue in terms of selection or versatility though, which is why we always try to tell you when the company’s pricey LED lights go on sale. And as it turns out, there’s a great sale right now that you should definitely check out if you want to expand your smart lighting setup without paying top dollar.

First and foremost, the Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 LED Smart Bulb is the single most popular bulb Philips Hue makes. It’s great, but this popular light bulb normally sells for $50. That’s right… $50 for a single A19 light bulb, which is basically the regular size bulb that fits into most lamps and fixtures. Philips Hue’s A19 multicolor bulb supports 16 million different colors along with all the other bells and whistles you can expect from a Hue bulb, and that’s why it’s so pricey. But if you grab a 2-pack of these popular multicolor bulbs today at Amazon, you’ll only have to pay $78.97. That works out to just $39.49 per bulb and it’s a bigger discount than Amazon was offering during Black Friday and Cyber Week last year. That said, there’s no question that the seller offering them at this price will sell out fast, so you’ll have to hurry if you want them.

If you only want one bulb or you need an odd number, you can also buy an individual A19 multicolor bulbs for $42 instead of $50. And if you don’t need colors at all and just want dimmable white Philips Hue smart light bulbs, they’re $10.50 a piece when you buy a 4-pack of refurbs.
