Nothing has been announced at this point, but we would be absolutely shocked if Philips Hue didn’t offer its customary discounts this year for Black Friday 2018. That means modest (but much appreciated!) discounts on its most popular smart lighting products, and that typically includes $10 off the company’s $50 A19 multicolor bulb. $10 in savings is certainly helpful since the company’s bulbs are so expensive, but there’s another option you should consider instead.

The MagicLight WiFi A19 Smart Light Bulb supports 16 million different colors just like the Philips Hue bulb. It can also be controlled by an app, by Alexa, or by a smart home hub just like Philips Hue. What’s the biggest difference? MagicLight’s bulb is on sale right now for just $17!
