Once you have a smart speaker to bark commands at, it's likely that smart lights are the next frontier you'll look to conquer in your home - and luckily for you there's set to be plenty of deals flying about in the category this Black Friday week, which is now rolling into Cyber Monday territory.
Philips Hue is a major player in the mind-melting sales bonanza yet again, offering you reductions and bundles on its bulbs, light strips and starter kits.
Considering these items are usually on the pricey end, too, the Holiday Season sales event represents the perfect time to invest.
With Signify having just launched its new Philips Hue Bluetooth-ready bulbs, the Hue ecosystem is now open for anyone to get involved, hub or no hub. So we're fully expecting to see deals across the White and Color Ambiance bulbs.
Both Hue and Amazon have been quick out of the blocks with some great savings across the board, and on both sides of the pond.
And this is probably the best Black Friday / Cyber Monday deal we've seen so far, over on Amazon...
Here are the best Philips Hue smart light deals right now...
Philips Hue Cyber Monday deals: Starter kits
Unless you have an Amazon Echo Plus, Echo Show or the new Echo 4th-gen, you're going to need a pesky hub to connect your Philips Hue bulbs.
The good side of picking one up is that you can actually get much more out of your lights than you would with an Amazon speaker, but the downside is that the Philips Hue Hub usually costs a cool $59.99 on its own.
However, the good news is that both Hue is offering a pair of Smart White Bulbs (worth $30 value) free with the purchase of any bridge.
- Grab the deal here direct... Hue Bridge & 2 White Bulbs for $59.99
Amazon's variation of that deal adds a third smart white bulb into the mix for just $5 more:
- Shop with Amazon... Hue Bridge and 3 White Bulbs for $64
An even better deal than that though is where you can grab the latest Echo smart speaker and a pair of Hue bulbs for less than $70.
With the Zigbee-enabled Echo smart speaker, you can get Hue bulbs singing and dancing with your Alexa system without the need for the Bridge.
Philips Hue Cyber Monday deals: Bulbs
The Starter Kit is a nice place to, well, get started, but if you're looking to pick up individual bulbs, it's likely you've got the same problem as every other Hue owner; turning on regular lights now fills you with deep sadness and the only medicine is more connected bulbs.
If you do have this unshakeable urge, as well as a house filled with dumb lightbulbs, you're quickly going to be out of pocket, though - particularly if your taste is for the Hue White and color range. At their peak, individual Hue bulbs can set you back as much as $49.99 each, which is why it's wise to wait it out for Black Friday.
The best deal we've spotted so far on Amazon is $35 off of a 3-pack of color bulbs - $99.
In the US, there aren't any bulb-specific deals just yet with Hue directly, but in the UK there are a few bundle offers already live:

If you're on the hunt for Hue deals, be sure to bookmark this page and keep checking back as we'll be keeping it updated with not only the direct discounts but also the Black Friday sales over on Amazon.
In previous years we've also seen some decent bundles with Hue bulbs and Echo speakers.
Amazon often offers up a Hue bulb or two with the likes of the Amazon Echo Dot, and if this is your first time dipping your toe into smart lighting, that's a great place to start. Last year there was $60 off the bundle with an Echo Dot and two color bulbs.
If you're already a card-carrying member of the Hue club, then be on the lookout for deals on larger bulb bundles. Last year we saw the Hue White 4-Pack slashed by $15, which is nothing to sniff at.
There's always a good chance we'll see deals on the Philips Hue Go lamp and the Hue LightStrip too. Make sure you check back here when the deals go live.
Other smart bulbs to consider
Hue may be the smart bulb king but there are plenty of great smart light brands out there, vying for your sockets.
There are bound to be great savings across the Black Friday shopping period for the likes of Innr, Kasa, Ring Lifx, C by GE, Nanoleaf and more.
Again, keep this page bookmarked as we'll be doing all the deal hunting so as you don't have to.
