Extra iHerb savings!


This post contains my iHerb referral link. You'll save money using it (even existing customers), and I may be compensated by iHerb. It won't cost you extra - but it WILL save you money!



 

I love to share iHerb deals whenever I hear about them, and right now you can get 12% off your order! Just be sure to enter promo code SAVE12 at checkout!

Lately, even though I live really far out in the middle of nowhere, my iHerb orders have been coming really quickly! Sometimes I get FREE Boxit delivery to a pick up point, and other times, I get low cost DHL delivery my door.


I've been consistently impressed with their service during the pandemic. I'm so happy that I filled in some of the things I was missing this way (like fragrance free laundry detergent, french roast coffee, and eco-friendly dishwasher detergent. I couldn't get those in my grocery delivery, for some reason...)!

Be sure to use any of the links in this post to get a discount in addition to the weekend 12% off - the code will be automatically loaded into your cart - right now it should get you 5% off your entire order! IF you don't see it in your cart, you can manually enter code QEJ101 for your referral discount.

More PRO tips for shopping at iHerb:

If you use Shipping Savers, you can get really affordable shipping, even if you choose DHL to your door (I highly recommend this shipping method and sometimes it's as low as $2!)

You can sort for Shipping Savers on iHerb by clicking the Shipping Saver checkbox on the left-hand side of the page. Check out my Shipping Saver suggestions, too - click the link for some, read below for others!
 
Here are some of the things I like to buy at iHerb:


Toothbrushes - this 2 pack includes brush covers AND a small roll of floss, and is less than 10 NIS. That means less than 5 NIS for each brush plus cover and some floss! Try beating that price locally! BONUS: this is a shipping saver item, so your shipping cost will GO DOWN when you add it to your cart! Pretty Amazing deal right there!

Neosporin and Neosporin with Pain Relief - you can't get these over the counter in Israel! And this is one of the only ways to get neosporin here! It's a bit pricey, but it's a shipping saver, so it should offset some of your shipping!

SilverGel - similar products, that are great healing creams for skin, are all Rx only in Israel, and are about the same price or more. If you want to keep a silver based cream handy without needing to prove to your doctor that you need it, stock up at iHerb! AND this product is a shipping saver!

Mederma - this scar reducing cream is widely used in the USA, and is not available, as far as I know in Israel! So ordering from iHerb is a great option. Bonus: it's a shipping saver!
 
Palm Oil (this eco-friendly version is not available in Israel at all, and is perfect for making frosting or vegan fudge)

Magnesium Tablets (these and many other supplements are quite pricey in Israel)

Stash Teas (I buy these when they are on sale, as the sale price comes out to less than the lowest price I can find herbal teas for locally, and these are just SO MUCH HIGHER quality than teas I can find for an affordable price!)

Vitamin D (so many people are deficient, it turns out! And my doctor prescribed a rather high dose, and what's sold here is very low dose and more expensive)

Probiotics are far less expensive from iHerb than any I've found in Israel, and they don't weigh much! Many of these are "shipping savers" - so they'll lower your shipping costs for the whole order if you add them in!

Ricola throat drops (these work out to be only slightly less expensive than the local price, so I use them as a "filler" product, never as my "reason for buying")

Witch Hazel (it's really difficult to find witch hazel products locally, and if you love witch hazel, you'll be thrilled with iherb's price. This one is a toner with alcohol in it - some people like the alcohol in it, but if you don't, they also have plenty of no-alcohol witch hazel products)

Essential Oils (I use them in homemade cleaners) - for a fraction of the price here in Israel! Yes, they are real and natural (and very importantly, not an MLM)!

Soy-free Teriyaki Sauce (for my soy allergic child) - I've never seen this in Israel!

I also regularly check the Specials Page to see if products I use are on sale and work out to a better deal thru iHerb during a sale, and I also occasionally will order a hard-to-find spice.


Let me know what your favorite deals are!

Don't get surprised by import taxes! If you are ordering items from overseas, be sure to familiarize yourself with the most recent personal import regulations!

So, What's the Deal with Amazon International Shipping? I've got news!

this post contains affiliate links. If you click on a link and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission, which helps me keep this blog going. Thank you for your support!

Maybe you've already heard that Amazon has resumed shipping to Israel? I posted here last week that they have, but shipping fees were an issue. And then I went on to post how many items have a shipping fee of about $10.

And yes, they do. Thousands of items are now shipping to Israel, with a line about shipping costing about $10!

So today I decided to investigate further, and I was so excited to discover that with 5 items in my cart, each of which had a shipping fee between $9 and $12 listed, the total shipping fee was MAJORLY reduced and came to $22 and change.

Now, you might think this sounds like a lot to pay for shipping. And it might be - it depends what you're buying. For me, this price was totally reasonable because 2 of the items I was buying are just NOT AVAILABLE in Israel! The other 3 items I bought, while they can be bought locally, were priced at 50% - 80% lower than the local equivalent. So I decided the $22 charge STILL made sense! And yes, I kept my order to under the $75 taxable threshold, and hopefully the packages will be delivered to my door next week!

I've still got more items on my wish list, but I'm spreading out my purchases! I'll keep you posted when I get back to my, um, research (shopping?)!

More about Amazon shipping to Israel...

this post contains affiliate links. If you click on a link and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission, which helps me keep this blog going. Thank you for your support!

Maybe you've already heard that Amazon has resumed shipping to Israel


And yes, they have. Thousands of items are now shipping to Israel, BUT....


But some things have quite reasonable shipping fees.

Let's look at watches today, because someone in my household asked me about those.


I was checking for men's watches, under $50. And happily, most of the ones I found that ship to Israel have low shipping fees - about $10, some less (some maybe a bit more).

Here's one that's a combination analog & digital watch and basically has all the features we were looking for. It's $27.99 plus $10.78 shipping. We couldn't find one like this for this price anywhere near us! 

For smaller wrists, there are Boys' watches - here's a Timex for boys for about $13 and about $10 shipping.

If you're looking for something in a higher price range, you can get a Smith & Wesson watch with a titanium case for about $60 and about $10 shipping. Still no import taxes!

There are also lots of women's watches that ship for about $10, too. I'm not a big fashionista, but Amazon has every style you can imagine!

What are you looking for today?
