Back to School Shopping!

Back to school shopping in Israel with Amazon? Yes, you can! Here are some deals you might want to see - at the time of posting, all of the following products were well-priced and were eligible for free shipping to Israel with a $49 purchase:

Prismacolor "Class Pack" colored pencils (yes, they are better than the ones you'll find at "stock" stores here!)

Jansport backpacks (some ship free, not all do) - these have a lifetime guarantee!

Pencil top erasers - buy this pack for just a few dollars and split it with a friend or three, and you'll all have erasers for life!

Papermate Ball Point Pens (so much more affordable this way!)

Solar-powered Scientific Calculator

Break-resistant Pencils

Insulated lunch bags 

And there are so many more goodies waiting!

Amazon's prices change frequently but they're really great about letting you know if an item in your cart has changed price - so if you found one and deliberated about it, you'll know if something changed when you decide to complete your purchase.

Sometimes free shipping offers disappear, so please check carefully before you order. Just remember - you can avoid VAT and other import fees by staying below the $75 tax threshold for any single order! If you do go over, as you will if you're buying a computer, you will see exactly what you'll pay in taxes at checkout. I only do this if I'm actually buying a product that costs more than $75. And I don't add any other small things to these orders, because once you're over, you're over and you'll pay fees on the entire order.

For smaller purchases, I place separate orders that each total under $75.

If you're in the USA and buying a gift for someone in Israel, please follow those guidelines, too - or be prepared to prepay all taxes and fees. You'll see them before you checkout, so don't worry about surprises. You will need to enter the recipient's ID number at checkout too, so the package can clear customs.

Hope you found this helpful! If yes, be sure to find me on Facebook and join my shopping groups (here and here)!
