Israel Post has an option to send packages from the post office to your home (for 20 NIS)

Image
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 you do decide to go with Gett, you should use our link to get a coupon on your first ride (new users only) - http://b.gett.com/im?coupon=GTVKJYYMore information on the Mail Delivery- https://mypost.israelpost.co.il/pages/ad_habait_shlihim
You can see this option from the item tracker (מעקב משלוחים) page on their site. Note that if you order via Amazon, they are supposed to deliver the package to your house. 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

It wouldn't be fair to compare an Israeli label to an American brand. So let's stick with Axe Apollo Body Wash for example. 

At Rami Levi, it is 9.8 shekel for 400 ml. The current exchange rate would have the price be $2.83 for 13.5 fluid ounces. The prices always change on amazon, but let's say you get 2.5 more fluid ounces and pay less in the states. 

It seems oddly similar to Dollar Stores in the US. They sell a product with less volume for $1. If you do the math, it is cheaper at a superstore or online even.

In any case, I would recommend buying in bulk. You are going to use it anyways, and you get a better price vs purchasing an individual unit. 

It seems like the quantity in Israel is smaller and more expensive th…

Electra Market is having a deal for Bank Hapoalim Card owners on amazon - up to 30% off.

You can get the code form Bank Hapoalim's website.


Then go to this page on amazon to see all the deals.

It seems like you can get a kit of home supplies for a set price.

Everything has free shipping. My guess is that a local courier service will do the delivery.

Under Armour Shirts on Discount

I personally love to run, play basketball, and exercise while wearing quick-dry shirts. No sweat marks, and it just feels much better than wearing cotton.

Many companies make shirts with this style, Nike has Dri-Fit and Under Armour has Tech 2.0 Shirts.

What do you wear during work-outs?
