I got the $99 starter pack deal from these guys and was pretty satisfied. It came basically brand new.

Hmm. I'm skeptical about this. The seller has a good rating, but can anyone comment on the idea of getting refurbished Hue light bulbs vs. new? This deal got an instant TD from someone.

Which I find strange since it is the same seller as the $99 starter kit and people were all about that one.

I think I see why now. It's usually the sets of 3 bulbs that go for $100 on sale, sometimes new, with a hub. These are $35 for one refurbished bulb with no hub. For someone just getting started with Hue and looking to buy several bulbs, this is a bad deal. However, if someone needs 1 more bulb to cover that last room, this can be a decent deal since add-on bulbs retail for over $60. I really don't like Philip's pricing scheme on Hue bulbs on the starter kits with a hub that you probably don't need, add-on bulbs at an outrageous price, and nothing in between.

Anyway, the TD's are unwarranted since this deal is context dependent.

That's true - but I feel like the BR30s are pretty cheap, the cheapest starter kit I can find is ~$130 which then requires selling the hub to get to the cost of these refurbs. I agree with you on the pricing scheme, it is pretty annoying.
