Default Energy Saving Bulbs for Spain 49p

There was a thread recently about could you get these Energy saving bulbs in Spain.
On a similar thought if anyone is in the UK and can take these bulbs to Spain they are currently on sale in John Lewis for 49p each. They are 11watt and 18 watt (equals normal 60w and 100w I think) and most importantly they have them in either ES or BC fitting.
Seemed like a good deal for those still in the UK.
Hope it helps someone.

The screw thread ones should be OK. Just make sure you get the right size. They come in 14mm or 27mm sizes.

I buy General Electric or Philips. I find that the cheap ones only last for a few weeks.

I was thinking of prices in the UK for those that are coming out for a short time and dont have time to shop around when here.
But the more info the better.
Very good, never mind being beaten on price.
Anyone know of anyone cheaper in the UK?
Or a nationwide seller in Spain?
