expiredWink Smart Home Hub and GE Link Wireless White LED Light Bulb: $16 Prime Shipped ($58 value)

A new Amazon bundle nets you a Wink Smart Home Hub and a GE White LED Wireless Light Bulb for only $15.99 Prime shipped.

It would cost you a total of $58.34 if you were to buy each item individually. That’s a savings of $42.35. What’s more, the bulb alone will currently run you $18.35. So you’re paying more than $2 less to get a bulb and Wink Hub.

Now, Wink hasn’t gotten the best reviews, but at this price it’s probably worth a gamble. According to reviewers, the GE bulb will also work with a SmartThings Hub, so if you don’t have any luck with Wink then you may want to look into trying SmartThings.
