Philips Hue Color starter sets gen 3 $99 at Sam's Club YMMV

$99.00

EDIT: The real story is gen 2 starter kits (three gen 2 bulbs, one gen 2 hub) for $99 and gen 3 starter kits (three gen 3 "richer colors" bulbs, one gen 2 hub) for $129. This is widely reproducible and NOT YMMV. (I think I got lucky getting the gen 3s for $99 and that deal has not been reproducible.)





I found Philips Hue generation 3 White & Color Ambiance starter kits for $99.81 at my local Sam's club.

I bought 3. They had about 2 dozen.

YMMV! YMMV!
People seem to be finding it for $129, which is still a good deal for gen 3s. Some people report seeing the gen 2s for $99.

It has been reported that the Austin Lakeline location has raised/corrected/changed the price so it's no longer worth a trip to that specific store to attempt to replicate.
YMMV! YMMV!

Look at the pictures.
The picture of the price tag indicates 456194, which is gen 2, but the image of the product has the "Richer Colors" image which is 464495. Not sure if it's a localized mistake or not. Has anyone been able to replicate this deal at other clubs?

Probably a mistake. Run and get yours if you see this at your store! Gen 3 bulbs are at least $40 a piece.

They give me gen 3s. I scanned the UPC on the box in the Amazon app and they popped as gen 3s. Maybe it's a local mistake and I should put YMMV if no one can replicate. There are still quite a few in NW Austin if someone wants to pounce on them.
