So, you need to pay Import Deposit Fees - Here's how to lower that cost.

Image
There is a bug with the VAT calculation on some items (not every account is effected) where the Import Deposit Fee is way higher than it should be. Just to note: you will only be charged Import Deposit  if your cart goes over $75 (in items themselves, not shipping).  But, if you go into this VAT Calculator  and notice that the Import Deposit Fee seems significantly higher (note the price of shipping too - this article explains more - https://sales.aviparshan.com/2020/03/clarification-about-import-deposit-fees.html ) Then here is your solution - Add a small value item to your cart, such as one in our Dollar Finds List below... and watch your Import Deposit Fee "correct itself".  Lastly, you can note that Amazon should return the difference of the Import Deposit Fee if it is higher than what the Tax Authority actually charges... If you don't want to take the chance and also have no desire to wait till they do that, you are in luck... בתקופה האחרונה יש באג מוזר בחישוב העמלת

Electronics that support 220v for Israel and the EU - Database

Image
  Electronics that support 220v for Israel and the EU - Database Update: we are always adding more options, so please check back weekly! Note that not all items may ship free, since this is more of a database of products that we've checked rather than specific deals.  I have been wanting to do this for a long time... Instead of searching on amazon for electronics that support 220v, and not getting your answer... I decided to make my own database of products that work within the 220v range. This is just getting started. I will open this up to public submissions starting with members of our Deals Group  and then maybe turn this into a side-project.  I'd love your feedback, to improve this and make it even better ;)  Note that any product that charges over USB should be fine and work everywhere. If something is not 220v, you can still use it in Europe, but you should get a step-up transformer (consult an electrician).  Note that in the US, they use 110v at 60Hz, and Israel uses 22

  We just discovered this recently, if you are in בידוד or just stuck at home... You can get packages straight to your door. No need to step foot in the post office or store pickup anymore. There are several options, but the cheapest one seems to be My Post שליחת מדלת לדלת for 20 NIS. We do not recommend Gett Delivery because they charge by the meter (not flat-rate).

If they don't, you can complain to their customer service and request to switch to a different service -  https://sales.aviparshan.com/p/customer-service-options.html Please share this post with your fri

Huge deal on Samsung M.2 Storage Drives for your computer

Image
 Deal is no longer active Hello again, we found 2 amazing deals on Samsung Evo 970 M.2 Storage drives.  These are really fast but might not fit in your older computer or laptop. This is great for storing your OS, critical programs, games, and videos for editing.  Even with the high shipping cost and VAT, these come out far cheaper than purchasing them locally. You can also consider shipment forwarding to lower the shipping charge.  Here are the two deals (on Amazon US):   Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD 500GB - M.2 NVMe Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD 1TB  For the 500gb drive, there is an 80 shekel discount my by purchasing it from amazon vs ivory. This doesn't even include Ivory's shipping cost of 25 shekel.  And for the 1TB model, the difference grows to 154 shekels, also not including Ivory's shipping charges. ירידת מחיר שווה לSamsung M.2 כונן. תוודאו שזה מתאים למחשבים שלכם קודם כל. אף עם הדמי משלוח ומע"מ, זה יותר זול באמזון מאשר קנייה מקומית. לפי הבדיקות שלנו, יש חיסכון של 80 ש

our iHerb order - we just picked it up (shipped free to israel)

Image
Hey, we just got our order through iHerb with several items. We went over the $40 minimum to get free shipping to Israel. This is a deal with Boxit, which means that you'll have to setup a pickup location and get the order within 5 days of it arriving.  There are alternative options for shipping, but they aren't free, unfortunately. We placed the order on July 12th, it arrived yesterday (the 20th), and we picked it up today. That's a 9 day turn around, so I'm pretty impressed.   Overall, I'm quite happy with their offerings, as many items aren't available locally or through amazon... But you can find them through iHerb with ease.  Here is a list of what we ordered, you can use my link and get a bonus 5% off your order. This can be used in tandem with their other promotion for an additional 10% when paying over $60 (VALUE60). Try not to exceed $75 so you can avoid paying VAT.  https://sales.aviparshan.com/2020/06/iherb-coupons-galore-and-free-shipping.html With t

How to tell if an item is Fulfilled by Amazon or Sold by Amazon (to get inexpensive shipping to Israel) FBA/SBA/FBM

Image
Terms: SBA = Sold by Amazon FBA = Fulfilled by Amazon FBM = Fulfilled by Merchant It looks like we now have reasonable priced shipping from Amazon to Israel. By the looks of it, only certain FBA items qualify for this (around $8 in shipping vs the $40 it was earlier). You should be looking for Fulfilled by Amazon preferably or Ships from and sold by amazon. As for Ships form a 3rd party, that is up to the seller to decide. And your item should show the shipping cost, like this: (Previously shipping fees were around $40 per order) רצינו לשים כמה דגשים על איך זה עובד. בעצם, הצלחנו רק במוצרים מאמזון או FBA - מוצרים שיושבים במחסנים שלהם. יש 2 תמונות למעלה שמציינים איך להבדיל מוצר מחברה חיצונית ממוצר של אמזון, המשלוח במחיר סביר לא יעבוד על מוצרים שלא תחת אחד מהקטגוריות האלו.  גם לא כל המוצרים של אמזון יהיו עם המשלוח הזול הזה.  Unfortunately there are items/full categories that don't appear to have inexpensive shipping. In my case, I couldn't find a pack of pencils to ship for under

iHerb Coupons Galore - and free shipping

Image
iHerb now has free shipping on orders from $40 and up when you use BOXIT to deliver instead of DHL. I believe it isn't door-to-door delivery but rather setting a drop-off location close to your home and then picking it up when it's available. Other coupons:  You can combine the deal with the code VALUE60 to get an extra %10 off your order above $60. Try to stay below $75 to avoid paying VAT.  In addition, we found that this code:  IOVATESAVE20    gets you 20% off of sports supplements.  Lastly, you can also use this code  KCH375   , and get a bonus 10% off (for new customers) or 5% off for existing customers. This one can be combined with the other coupons (and it's built into the link).

Edit: get free shipping here  https://sales.aviparshan.com/2021/08/amazon-free-shipping-has-returned.html Daniel Eledut We have great news to share with you. One of our amazing group members figured out this trick in this post:  https://www.aviparshan.com/fb/735884663845323/ If you aren't a member of the group, we highly recommend joining to get notified of the very best deals and news regarding Amazon in Israel.  For clarification, this only appears to be working with items that are shipped by and sold from Amazon or a 3rd party using Amazon's Warehouses (FBA).  In order to verify that a product is FBA, you'll have to go into the product page and look for this:  You'll only be charged for the order once it ships, leaving you ample time to follow the method. Finally, you need to place your order and only after this option will become available. If you have any questions or information regarding this post,feel free to let us know!  Place the order, then choose  "rev
