Where's there a good place to buy 'white light' bayonet bulbs

11 replies 147 views
The last time I bought these was online at CPC, but their minimum order value, to avoid postage charges has jumped up, from £5 a couple of years ago to £17.50 now.
Is there anywhere else that offers good value bulbs.
I mainly want some extra bayonet bulbs and 4 large screw candle type bulbs, all bright white

    Define 'good'.
    If you have a Screwfix/Toolstation branch nearby, check their websites. I cannot vouch for the value of their cheapest bulbs though.

    I find HB, Poundstretcher et al are a bit hit and miss.

    I bought 20 dimmable bayonet the year before last from Screwfix and found these to be around £2 each when bought in bulk.

    Had a box of LAP brand LED lamps from Screwfix about four years ago. Still going strong and haven't needed to replace any of them yet.

    Another vote for Screwfix, I bought 2 boxes of bayonet fitting LEDs nearly 18 months ago and all are still going strong.

    All my LED bulbs are Philips and can be purchased on Amazon for a few pounds a bulb (if buying in bulk and depending on the exact type you’re looking for).  I have 46 of them in total in my house, most installed in 2017 and there hasn’t been a single failure yet.

    Whatever happened to a 59p bulb from good old Woolies?
    I'm writing a book on plagiarism. It wasn't my idea.

    Whatever happened to Woolies :(

    IMHO Wilko is expensive for bulbs.

    Poundland replaced them..
    Have a couple of their £1 specials. Not the brightest bulbs, but OK(ish) for the price.
