Frugal food shopping for the Anglo Israeli

My Supermarket online

Have you ever heard of My Supermarket?  It is a very cool online shopping center.  You pick the items you want and it tells you what the prices are in several stores.  You then choose which store to make your order and voila!  the food is at your door.  It even compares delivery costs.  The stores include Mega BaInternet, Shufersal Online, Rami Levy Ba Internet, Yaynot Bitan and Victory.  Of course if you live in the boonies, most of these choices aren’t relevant, but still it is nice to see the different prices.

This is a sample of what a page looks like:


You can see the price at all of the stores, if it is on sale when the sale is over, and a graph of that item’s price over time.

They even have a price warning alert– you put in the items you like to purchase and they will send you an alert when it is on sale!  You do have to register on the site (email and phone number) to use the alert system.

As the Syms commercial used to say, “An educated consumer is our best customer.”

Coupons for Tilboshet online store for school shirts- expiring soon!

In case you still haven’t gotten shirts yet, I just found two coupons for the Tilboshet online store:

50% off or one shirt free for purchases over 149 shekels – you have to give Tilboshet your email and phone number.

Babetov has a coupon for 150 shekels worth of clothing for only 80 shekels.  Don’t wait- as of now, there are 72 hours left to purchase coupons.  There is a discrepancy in the fine print- in one place it says there are no limits to the amount of vouchers and the vouchers are good from 20 Aug-19 Sept.  Later on it says limited to 2 vouchers per person and the vouchers are good until 1 Dec 2013.  Even further on it says that you can only use one voucher per purchase.  I recommend contacting them before purchasing- 03-3746616 or

Mega online delivery for only 10 shekels- expires 28 Aug 2013

Online grocery shopping- you CAN do it!

One of the most attractive new ideas for a working mother (in or out of the house) is shopping online. Why waste time on lines and shlep groceries if you don’t have to? “Sure,” you say, “but who can afford it?”

Believe it or not, you CAN afford it. If you are a smart shopper.

The three main supermarket chains offer online shopping.  Rami Levy only delivers to Northern  Tel Aviv at this time.  Mega does not come to where I live either.  You can check here to see if Mega comes to your area.  That left me with Shufersal.

Shufersal Yashir’s website is here.  You can search by the sales or not. I, of course, shop the sales.  I was pleased to see that the sales are the same as what is advertised in the stores- that means that for sale items, it is equivalent to in-store shopping.

There is also a button called ״חיסכון נוסף ״ – “chisachon nosaf”- additional savings which are not listed in the stores. For example, I purchased aluminum foil at the sale price. In the additional savings section , they offered me a discount to purchase another package. So I did.

I did browse the non-sale items, and did find slightly higher prices than the store. For example, Shufersal brand shoko powder was 10.99 ₪ instead of the regular 7.99-8.99 ₪.

The delivery fee is 28 ₪ which is waived if you spend 750 ₪ or more.

As a new customer, I received a coupon book with 8 coupons for 25 ₪ each off my next purchases (can’t combine them).

Now for the most important part- delivery.

I was given a two hour window from within 12 hours until next week.

You have to check when the sale ends, though: if your delivery date is after the sale ends, you will pay regular price for those items on sale.

They came one-half hour into the window. The truck was not refrigerated, but the refrigerated and frozen items came with dry ice. The ice cream was soft, but the fruits were perfect and the non-food items were wrapped separately from the food items.

 They called that morning to tell me they were missing some items and asked if I would be willing to switch them for a similar item.  They will be sending them in a few days at not additional charge.

To summarize, you can be a frugal shopper and still shop online as long as you follow the following rules:

  1.  Use a Shufersal club card, preferably a credit card as well.
  2.   Only buy the sale items.
  3.  Spend over 750 ₪. 

Happy Shopping!
