Best Buy has a deal where you can order a Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus and the extension for $69.99.

It looks like it's an online only deal. I know this isn't the best price ever, but for the strip and the extension it's pretty solid.
First time posting a deal so let me know if I need to add anything.

Nowadays all this Hue shit is just too expensive, a couple years ago sure, a deal at this price. But with all the new competition, their prices haven't budged, they're now rip-off city.

What other products specifically would you recommend?

I need 18' and was looking at pricing our extra extensions. When I add more to my order, it completely eliminates the discount, even with adding multiple sets. I could make multiple orders but guessing they want to limit by order.

One of the bigger catches with non-Hue bulbs is finding ones that work in all ecosystems. If you want Hue, Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, and Amazon Echo, it can be tricky finding a product that syncs across all ecosystems. Some like myself care about that so we're not locked into one of the big voice assistants.
For LED Light strips that work with Hue specifically, this for $70 actually isn't that bad of a deal. WiFi or Zigbee strips aren't the cheapest, especially if you still want it to work with the Hue Hub. You'll either need to buy a compatible kit like this [amazon.com]. or source out the LEDs [amazon.com], power source [amazon.com], and zigbee interface [amazon.com] yourself, which doesn't really save money, but I like to tinker.

The Hue line are one of the few Smart devices that's worth the premium. Works flawlessly with absolutely everything. HomeKit, especially, is key for me. I could get much cheaper led strips, sure. But the hue just works wonderfully

I have tried other brands trying to save money, and have always been disappointed. I hate paying the Hue premium, but I will no longer waste money on inferior products. Unless, someone can enlighten me on a competing product that is on par with Hue.

I've been using generic waterproof LED strips with WWCWRGB and a GLEDOPTO DC12-24V RGB+CCT/rgbw Zigbee smart LED strip Controller. There's a 1 ID version that controls all the color channels as 1 light and a 2ID version which separates the whites and the RGB into 2 lights on the app. When using 2 ID basically you can have intense white mixed with intense color and anything in between. Won't work with some Hue App features, I forget which, but works with Alexa, Google, IFTTT, and hue accessories like the motion sensor.

If you want to source three SKUs to save ~$9, I have purchased this combo three times so far and it has worked well for me:
GIDERWEL RGBWW LED Strip Lights [amazon.com]
GLEDOPTO LED Light Strip Controller [amazon.com]
LEDMO Power Supply, Transformers,LED Adapter, 12V, 5A Max [amazon.com] probably just a slightly cheaper power supply but it's worked fine for me so far.

If going DIY, I suggest checking out /r/gledopto on Reddit [reddit.com] for much more.

The biggest advantage of going GLEDOPTO is the longer runs. 16ft for under $80 is much more palatable than the short runs Philips Hue offers. The biggest downside is that the GLEDOPTO strips won't work with the Play Sync box (or software if using an HTPC), so no fun lighting effects during movies. Though, that could be seen as a feature for some lol.

If you use Nvidia shield download the hue ambilight app. It sees the gledopto as hue lights in the hue app and can control image on non-drm apps

This is not that great of a deal. This was $47 back in March.
Also, there are several issues and downsides with these light strips that in my opinion don't make it worth it. Here is a video [youtu.be] that does a good job explaining why.
