Amazon Coupons, Lightning Deals, and other useful links

Artem Beliaikin You may have heard about lightning deals, but you may have also noticed that on the Amazon Israel site, it doesn't show up on the homepage.  אולי שלעתם על אמזון בארץ, אבל בדף הבית לא רואים את כל העסקאות בזק, מצאנו פתרון לזה.  תפתחו את הקישור כדאי לראות את זה.  Lightning Deals עסקאות בזק-  Luckily, here is a link that still lets you access these deals - Lightning Deals . These are usually deals that last up to 24 hours. They also have a limited supply, meaning if they sell out, it is gone (for that price). You still may be able to join the waitlist and hope someone doesn't buy the item.  Coupons קופונים-  In addition to Lightning Deals, Amazon also has coupons that you can clip (to save additional money). Occasionally, you may only be able to use a single coupon for the whole order.  Do not confuse these with promotional codes.  Promotional codes are alphanumeric (for the most part), and allow you to add them at checkout. On the other hand,

Corelle Dish Thread - Free Shipping

Deal ended I was able to locate Corelle sets that actually ship free to Israel!  These are heavy dishes, and fragile, so it is surprising that this would even be an option... Locally, not all styles are available and they tend to be 10% to 15% more expensive. You also do not have the lifetime warranty for broken dishes in Israel, so leave that to consideration A picture is worth 1000 words, so I would recommend pausing the ad-block to see them.  Uptown Garden - 18 Pieces - Chip Resistant Portofino - 6 Pieces - Chip Resistant Terrazzo Rosa - 6 Pieces - Chip Resistant Square Splendor - 6 Piece

Deodorant/Antiperspirants that ship to Israel and are on a good deal

We've made the mistake in the past of posting a deodorant or antiperspirant that isn't both (meaning it only does 1 of the 2 tasks). With that being said, here is a thread of highly rated + inexpensive antiperspirant + deodorants in a single package. You can get some of these products locally, but the size is smaller and there is less of a selection... some people prefer specific brands and items which you cannot get locally. So here are some notable ones that we found and hopefully it will assist you as well Speed Stick Deodorant for Men Right Guard Sport Dove Men+Care Antiperspirant Deodorant Stick Old Spice Antiperspirant and Deodorant Degree Men's Antiperspirant/Deoderant   Degree Men Antiperspirant Deodorant - Dry Protection Secret Antiperspirant and Deodorant for Women .

FAQ Post about Amazon free shipping to Israel - Buyer's Guide

Amazon recently announced free shipping to Israel on a limited product range. Our groups have been going crazy for it! Here is a buyer's guide/FAQ to Amazon's Free shipping Promotion to Israel  How can I shop in Hebrew? איך אפשר להזמין בעברית?  Change the language to Hebrew here . יש לשנות עת השפה פה :  What is the minimum order size to qualify for free shipping?  $65 of eligible products (Each item needs to say eligible for free shipping to Israel ). Why is it recommended to not exceed $75 in a single purchase? The government holds the shipment and charges VAT (usually 17%). If you can split up your orders, it will save you time and money.  How long should I leave between purchases to avoid VAT?  The officially recommended timespan is 3 days (72 hours). If it is any closer, amazon might combine the two shipments and you may go over the soft $75 "limit".  Are there any other ways to avoid paying VAT?  Having a f

OtterBox Defender Cases for iPhones & Samsung on Sale

Deal is no longer active Henry Boulind from unsplash OtterBox is by far, my favorite phone case company. Their products aren't cheap but they are well worth it. Especially if you spent a lot of money on a new phone. They do not have a lifetime warranty unfortunately, which is certainly irritating, but the quality makes up for it.  OtterBox Defender Series for iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7 Plus OtterBox Communter Series Case for iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 OtterBox Defender Series Case for Galaxy S10+

Family Board and Card Games - Where to get english versions to Israel

Tim Foster from Unsplash Great for Hanukah and all year round. Over the weekend, it is always nice to sit down and enjoy some family time, board games aren't always boring. Unfortunately as immigrants to a foreign country, the same games are available but in the national language (here it's hebrew), so it becomes challenging to comprehend how to play a game like Catan when you can barely read the rules. There are several solutions, one being to print out the english guidebook and copy off of that... Another one is to have a local person teach you the ropes, or to struggle through it yourself... All in all, we have decided on multiple occasions to import it from the United States in English, it became much easier that way.  How do you play board games in Israel (or a foreign country)?  Here are some very popular and among our favorite games you can buy with english!  Board Games Monopoly - Operation -   Simon
