Snap In - Money Saving Tip

Saving money on groceries is a REALLY popular topic. It seems like some expenses are just too "fixed" to try to reduce (It's really hard to reduce a mortgage payment one month!), but groceries are somewhat flexible for most people. While you can occasionally  find coupons for groceries in Israel (go ahead, click and see if there are any you can use!), I find they are not nearly as common as they were when I lived in America, and they are definitely not as "high value".

In order to stretch my grocery budget a little bit further, I use Snap In in addition to the few coupons I find, the sug bet rack, and searching for discounts and deals (and of course, cooking from scratch!), as well as planning ahead.

As I've explained previously, Snap In is a rebate program. You buy a product, scan your receipt, and Snap In will give you a rebate. (They credit your account and then send you a payment when you accrue 100 shekels in credit.)

So far, I'm happy with Snap In. They pay directly into my bank account, and they're very user friendly. If ever there's a question about a rebate, they are quite responsive.

I find the best way to use their program is to take them up on "Free Offers" (who doesn't like free food?) and also use their rebates to help decide which brand to buy. So, if a particular product will give me a 5 shekel rebate via Snap In, but its competitor is 1 shekel less, I may decide to buy the one that comes out cheaper after rebate. This is only good if you actually can afford to wait for the rebate, obviously. Each person will have to make that decision for him/herself (I know it's not always feasible - I've been there!).

Rebates are lised on SnapIn's website, and they do change from time to time.

If you haven't tried it out, give it a try! If you've signed up already but haven't yet tried uploading a receipt, go ahead and give it a try! It's really not hard and you may find yourself getting rebates!

Note: upload your receipts as soon as possible, and definitely within the 30 day limit. If you're using Snap.In's mobile app, getting rebates as easy as snapping a picture! It takes me almost no time at all, and I've gotten a couple of hundred shekels from them since I joined! What are you waiting for? Join today!

Let me know if you use SnapIn, I'd love to hear what you think!

Discount Glasses PLUS Exclusive Extra Savings!

Reminder - this discount is still valid! Take advantage of it while you can - expires SOON!

Home Care Optical came into being a little over a year ago. Originally, the owner planned to provide a service for the elderly/homebound population, but he quickly realized that many others also prefer the convenience of an at-home service with flexible hours.

--- Retrieved from http://www.kosherfrugal.com/2016/08/discount-glasses-plus-exclusive-extra.html ---

The frames offered are high quality frames, with name brands such as Beverly Hills Polo Club, Tommy Hilfiger, and Lupo but without "name brand prices" The price range for frames is 200-450₪. 

The lenses provided by Home Care Optical are high quality lenses, made by one of the largest lens manufacturers in Israel. Pricing starts at 150₪ for a pair of lenses, but varies according to prescription and special qualities. The more expensive an item would be in a traditional optical store, the larger the savings will be!  (For example, thin lenses with a high index can be 500-600 per lens normally, but at Home Care Optical the cost would be 500-600 for the pair. The greatest savings are for multifocal lenses which typically start at 2,500 for the lenses, but start at 1,300 at Home Care Optical!)

Eye exams for prescriptions are available as well, using a device that works with a smartphone app. The app runs an interactive test that takes about 3 minutes, and accuarcy is ensured using another device. The exam is free with the purchase of glasses, otherwise the cost is 75₪.

HCO serves the following areas: Jerusalem, Mercaz, Sharon, Binyamin, Shomron, Gush Dan,  Modiiin/beit Shemesh (from Jerusalem to Netanya). Individuals in other communities can organize a sale at their home for a group of people.
