Shufersal Pesach deals- expire 13 April 2015

Here are pictures of the latest deals in Shufersal.  The Pesach products are coming out in full force now so watch the prices go up.  For example, last week Shufersal brand KLP shoko powder was 8.90 shekels, this week it is 9.90 shekels.  As requested by a reader, I have tried to photograph the actual hashgacha and I am trying to emphasize kitniyot-free products.

Sanfrost vegetables are almost all KLP- they have different statuses regarding shmitah so check that as well.These new diet puddings didn’t make it until Pesach.  Kitniyot.Kitniyot and Gebrahkts free.Kitniyot and Gebrahkts free.All of the standard Ashkenazi cookies- but with kitniyot.  Let the buyer beware.  (The TamTams are not KLP)This shouldn’t have kitniyot but it doesn’t say yes or no.Kitniyot.Kitniyot.Kitniyot.No Kitniyot!No Kitniyot!No Kitniyot!Again, shouldn’t have kitniyot but it doesn’t say either way.No Kitniyot!Unfortunately, only the giant bag was KLP.  Maybe the smaller ones will be in stock later on.  No KLP cat food at that time.No kitniyot or gebrahkts.No kitniyot.Kitniyot.Sorry, can’t tell if it has kitniyot or not.No kitniyot or gebrahkts!

Pesach sales at Shufersal- expire 9 Mar 2015- 13 April 2015

I didn’t have much time to go through all of the sale items, but here is a sampling of what I did find.  I find that once the KLP aisle is created, the prices on these items start to go up.  Get them now while the prices are low.

These are gone before you know it in the store so I bought four boxes.

Pesach sales at Rami Levy- expire 7 March 2015

Here are the latest KLP sales at Rami Levy. I recommend taking pictures of the sale signs- one sale miraculously expired from the time I took the product off the shelf and the time I checked out.  In addition, Rami Levy computers say that the tuna sale is limited to two items but the sign does not.  If you have a copy of the sign, you will get a quicker refund.

Pre-Rosh Hashanah sales and deals

We have just finished our second week of school- two weeks of picking out chugim, getting back to a routine, figuring out what to make for lunches, and homework, homework, homework.  Throw into the mix an out-of-the-country spouse, and you can just imagine how I haven’t been able to post for a few weeks.

There is no time to spare, however: we need to start getting ready for the holidays.  Here are some of the latest sales and deals:

1. The annual book fair at Heichal Nokia in Tel Aviv is going on now.  They don’t advertise that they have English books (but they also don’t advertise that they don’t).  All books are 7 for 100 shekels but if you bring the coupon below you can get 8 books for 100 shekels.  The fair is open Sunday-Thursday from 10:00-22:00, Friday from 10:00-16:00 and Saturday night from after Shabbat until 23:00.  The address is Yigal Alon 51 in Tel Aviv- Gate #4 next to Aroma.  For more information go to their Facebook page.

2. Nu- Pharm is selling hundreds of products at the low price of buy one, get the second one for 1 shekel.  To see what products are on sale, click here.  Stock up on the products you need for the holidays while the prices are low.  Sale ends 30 September 2014.

3. The supermarkets are slowly pulling out their loss leaders.  Go to Israflyer or Webflyer to see each store’s sales for that week.  Here are some of the deals I noticed:

Shufersal Sheli–  Shufersal brand honey (with the Israeli Standards Institute’s seal of approval), three 1.5 liter bottles of Pepsi or three rectangular containers of Starkist tuna for 10 shekels.  Sale ends 29 Sept 2014.  Limit three of each sale items.

You– This store has prices that knock out the competition.  Hawaii shampoo/conditioner is only 5 shekels (YOU members only) and a 4-pack of Filtuna tuna (including tuna with canola oil) for only 17.90 shekels!  With a 100 shekel purchase, you can get whole fresh carp for 14.90 shekels/kg and Adom Adom fresh lamb shoulder for 59.90 shekels/kg.  They also accept Rav-Tav cards at 100%.  Sale ends 15 Sept 2014.

Yesh B’schunot– Also has a 10 shekel deal- Telma cornflakes, Emek Hefer honey (with the Israeli Standards Institute’s seal of approval), Yesh brand gefilte fish, three 1.5 liter bottles of Pepsi, 4 bags of Yesh pasta, three cans of mushrooms, or three cans of Yesh brand pickles all for 10 shekels.  Sale ends 24 Sept 2014.

Shufersal Deal/Online– Four 450-ml wine glasses or a 34.6 * 20.7 * 5.3 cm rectangular glass pan for 10 shekels.  I bought the pan and will get a few more for Pesach.  The Brita Marella with three filters is 99 shekels and the SodaStream Genesis Deluxe is only 199 shekels (moadon members only).  Thirteen fancy plastics disposable bowls and serving spoons for 29.90 shekels.  Sale ends 24 Sept 2014.

4.  If you are traveling in the near future, you must check out this deal on three spinning hard plastic suitcases- 50, 60, and 70 cm, TSA locks and in a choice of many colors for only 299.90 shekels at Harmonia Labayit.  I can’t vouch for their quality but at that price they are worth a spin.  To find a store near you go to their web site.

Saving money on school supplies- Part 2

My luck is such that a few days after I post about saving money on school supplies, Ynet writes an article as well. Ynet reiterates what I said previously- that Israelis are too concerned with the war to worry about school supplies.  Those that are buying are buying only the essentials and a smaller amount than usual.  Stores such as Office Depot and Kfar Shaashuim are reporting decreased sales of 20-30% but Kravitz is reporting a decrease only in the South of approximately 15%.

When a representative from Kravitz was interviewed regarding the store’s reputation as being much more expensive than their competitors, he said that you can spend 4 shekels on a marker in Kravitz that is German quality and has approval from Machon HaTkanim (The Israeli Standards Institute) or go to the competition and spend 3 shekels on a marker that doesn’t work or states on the label that it is only for adults, which means it does not have approval from Machon HaTkanim.  It is obvious what is the more appropriate product.

A representative from Idan 2000 is also seeing decreased sales throughout the country.  People aren’t interested in going out and wandering around- in the South and in places like Rishon and Rechovot people aren’t leaving their houses at all.  In the North, people are caught up in the whole atmosphere of the country at war.

What does this mean for consumers?  Well, school will come at the end of August, war or no war.  The stores will have to get rid of their merchandise, so if the war is still going on, retailers will have to make an extra effort to make their products move out of the store.  That means big sales.  So don’t feel pressure to get anything done right now- time is on your side.

As an aside, Yisrael HaYom started posting the Kravitz coupon we all wait for each year- 50 shekels off a 150 shekel purchase.  Unfortunately I am not able to post each morning it appears in the paper, but you can go to their web site and read the paper early to see if it has a coupon.  You can also have it emailed to you early in the morning- sign up on their web site.  As far as I know you have to use the original print coupon- not one you print on the computer.  They also have coupons on other products but the deals aren’t usually that exciting.

If you really want to start shopping or are stuck home for whatever reason, check out my blog post about Tilboshet– the online store for 100% cotton school shirts.  Never go by the regular price- check for their current sales, which are listed below.

You can also order school books online from Tzomet Sefarim and pick them up in your local store when they arrive.

Stay tuned for more updates as they come in.  In the meantime, keep safe and stay strong. Mi Ka’amcha Yisrael?
