At the beginning of the year, Philips Hue increased the prices of numerous outdoor products and ceiling lights. A price increase of up to 20 percent or up to 40 euros was noted in February. But that is far from the end of the line: the Hue Festavia string lights, which was launched last year and quickly sold out, will cost 219.99 euros when it returns. That is 37.5 percent more than last year – respect!
While we have already become accustomed to the rising prices, Philips Hue now wants to counteract this a bit. Some new savings bundles are to appear in stores soon, for example the Hue Smart Plug in a 3-pack. In a single package, mind you. The classic filament lamp is also to be available in such a “value pack”.
That's exactly my sense of humour: first raising the prices and then offering larger bundles with a supposed price saving.
What will come next? Will Philips Hue increase the prices again next year? Or will it go down again? I am curious about your opinion in the comments…
