Discount Attractions and Entertainment

(This post contains affiliate links. I may receive a commission when you make a purchase. Thanks for your support!) 

I love being able to bring you the best of Groupon's deals - some of these you definitely don't want to miss!

Sometimes, the best way to get from Point A to Point B is with a car - and that's why car rentals are awesome for people who don't own one! I'm really happy to tell you that Groupon has brought back the Budget Car Rental Discount - as low as 77nis per day! Some things to keep in mind: these vouchers must be used by March 22, 2018. You can buy up to 14 of them and use them consecutively to customize your rental period (use for rentals between 1 and 14 days at a time). Includes up to 99 km/day.  Additional kilometers will be charged extra. Pick up and return at the airport will incur additional fees. Pick up or drop off in Eilat will also incur additional fees. No refunds on unused Groupons if you have to end your rental contract early.

Vacation without breaking the bank

this post contains affiliate links. If you click on a link and make a purchase, I may receive compensation. Thanks in advance for your support!


Life can be pretty intense, and SO many people ask me about taking vacations. It's obviously really hard to keep going without a break to recharge our batteries - but it's also difficult to take that break if it's going to deplete our bank accounts!

So the question of the day is:

How do you take a vacation on a budget? 

Consider renting a vacation apartment via AirBnb! If you've never used them before, sign up using this link, and get a discount on your first rental!

In addition to Airbnb, it's worth checking out various websites. Find the one that works best for you! Here are some that I know about:

  • We have also found great deals using Hotels.com - it's definitely worth checking them out for your next vacation in Israel or abroad!
  • Hotelscombined is another hotel price comparison site. You just never know which site is going to have access to the best deals!
  • If you're looking at staying at one of the Accor Hotels around the world, consider booking directly with them, as they have a lowest price guarantee, from what I understand!
  • Up to 35% cash back on hotel bookings sounds good, right? Booking through SPENT Travel can earn you hundreds on our next family vacation! Search today to check it out!
  • Use Daka90 for last minute flight and hotel deals in Israel or originating in Israel!
Select Vacation Deals from Groupon Israel:
  • Vacation on the French Riviera, for 3, 4, or 5 nights, at 4 or 5 star hotels, including flights and hotels, starting at 1600nis per person! Dates available in April, May, and June.
  • Vacation in Holland, for 6/7 nights, including flights, accomodations AND a rental car, for 2205nis per person!
  • Vacation in Cyprus for about 1000nis per person (includes flights and accomodations at a 5 star hotel)!

  • Istrotel Ramon Inn has great midweek deals! Packages for single or couple, for families, or for up to 5 adults in a suite. Includes breakfast and amenities!

Subsidized Eye Exams and Glasses!




Residents of Northern Israel - it's back! Here's another chance to get a really affordable eye exam and glasses!

This week - Monday (today!), February 12, 2018, and Thursday, February 15, 2018 - you have another chance to get subsidized eye exams and glasses, this time in Maalot. You'll be able to get a pair of glasses: frames + lenses - for just 100 shekels, or brand name sunglasses for 50 shekels! There is an option to have this fee waived in case of need, just ask at the event.

The event will take place at Merkaz Tze'irim, Rechov Zalman Shazar 11, Maalot, on Monday from 1pm - 7pm, and on Thursday between 11am - 7pm. This event is sponsored by "Ezra Ba'Re'iyah" and "Pitchon Lev".

Please bring your glasses if you just need new glasses with the same prescription as your old ones, OR if you have a written script for your new prescription, bring that in order to save time. If you don't have an up-to-date prescription, you can have an eye exam done there, but there may be a line.

You'll be able to get a pair of glasses (standard frames + standard lenses!) for just 100 shekels! Specialty lenses are subsidized on a different scale (multifocals, for example, will cost 600nis and transition lenses for most prescriptions will cost 300nis - still a really awesome deal! My high index lenses cost an extra 200nis, the cost varies by exactly what you need), and some frames are a bit more expensive, but still affordable. Subsidies are available - ask the person in charge if you cannot afford the 100 shekel fee.

Please note: Glasses are not made on the spot. You will receive a text message when they are ready to be picked up, at the same place where you order them.

Hope this helps some of you out there! There's been a lot of discussion about the cost of glasses lately.

Be sure not to miss out on more ways to save money - find me on Facebook!

I'm sure there will be similar programs in other towns - please let me know if you know of any!

P.S. I am not affiliated with the organizations sponsoring this or any similar events. I was not compensated to post this information. I received a press release, and have passed this information on as a public service.
