Discounts for a Day Out in Teverya (Tiberias)!

This post contains affiliate links. I may receive a small commission if you click a link and make a purchase, but it will NEVER cost you extra!

Planning a day out in Teverya? "Groo" (formerly Groupon Israel)'s got ya covered!

Here's the plan:

First, pick up your vouchers for a spa day at the Cesear Hotel  - they'll cost 169 NIS for one person, or 329 NIS for 2 people. The pass gets you into the hotel's spa facilities, including a thermo-mineral pool, sauna, and exercise room. Plus, your choice of breakfast or lunch!

Then, after you're all relaxed and re-energized, you can enjoy a nice steak dinner at El Rancho just a few minutes from the downtown boardwalk (far enough away to forget the hustle and bustle of it)! Here's a discount voucher that gets you their classic menu for 2 for 199 NIS - it's always a favorite!

End your day with an overnight stay at the Donna Gracia Hotel for just 399 NIS for 2 people, including breakfast the next morning! The hotel is very centrally located and you can take a tour of the small museum dedicated to the life and story of Donna Gracia. 

Total: under 1000 NIS for a full getaway for 2, including a hotel, 3 meals, and a spa day!

Thinking about Pesach. And shopping, already.

This post contains affiliate links. This means that if you click on a link and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission, at no additional cost to you! Thanks for your support! 

You probably know I'm a pretty price-conscious shopper. I really try hard to make my shekels go as far as possible, so I'm a pretty picky shopper. I try to pair great deals with coupon codes (don't forget about the mastercard savings you can get on the 10th of the month) and save as much money on my purchases as possible. 

Here are some great things you might need to set up your home for Pesach -- without overpaying!

2-pack large, washable tablecloths

Stainless steel baking pans (multi-pack)

Stainless steel cookie sheets (2-pack) - currently at its lowest price in 30 days!

Things to know about ordering from Israel: Shipping takes time, but lately, my orders have, for the most part, arrived well ahead of schedule - they seem to be building in a lot of extra delivery time to cover worst-case scenarios, but most packages arrive much faster.

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!
