couponing in the holy land

Frugal food shopping for the Anglo Israeli

Archive for the month “October, 2011”

Chocolate for a bitter price

Hershey’s, Elite, Cadbury- everyone has their favorite. Lindt Excellence is world renowned for its excellent taste as well.

Since Lindt is manufactured in Switzerland, the US and England, being importers of this chocolate as well, should also pay a premium price. Despite that, Israelis pay 15.30 shekels a bar, while Americans pay 8.90 shekels and the English pay 10.60 shekels.

Why such a difference in price? The Israeli importer responds: “The price difference is primarily due to the costs to import it under refrigeration as well as the cost to market it locally.”

Shufersal cancels free delivery for online shoppers

Online Shufersal shoppers will no longer have free delivery on orders over 750 shekels- the fee is now 10 shekels.  Orders under 750 shekels will still cost 28 shekels.

Shufersal feels the price increase is justified because the regular prices for many products have been lowered.  Shufersal Deal sales are also valid on Shufersal Yashir, lowering prices even further.

In July, the other major supermarkets raised their delivery costs- Mega to 28 shekels and Rami Levy to 24.90 shekels.

You can still get free delivery at Mega if you spend 500 shekels and use your moadon credit card.
