There are lot of UK bulb vendors. I can use shipping address of UK, some of my friends from UK will bring then to pakistan. Just trying to find a vendor who could allow non-UK billing address.

In USA, there are lots of vendors but they do not ship outside USA.

I think 50% off Offer might not come in coming weeks. I think we can go for any other offer like free P&P or 10% off. What do you say, Sysed Adnan, Izhar?
