    Bestest Deals of the Week, w/o 8/24/14



    Welcome to the second edition of Daily Cheapskate's new Friday feature:  the 'Bestest' Deals of the Week!  

    Each Friday I hope to summarize the deals from the past week that are still available and that I thought were the absolute 'bestest'.  It's a way of giving you a second shot at taking advantage of these great deals without having to spin backwards through the site.  These are the deals that were the best prices for the greatest value, got the most reader feedback, and had the greatest number of readers taking advantage of them.  Like I said, just the 'Bestest' Deals all around.


    Without further ado, here are this week's 'Bestest' Deals:



     Amazon has got the 100-piece clear set of Picasso Tiles for $69.99 with free shipping. These highly-rated magnetic tiles got 4.7 out of 5 stars over 106 customer reviews (94 of those reviews were 5 stars).  You can buy these as a new set or integrate them with your current Magna Tiles or Metro Mags sets.


    These vintage-look tassel drop earrings are only $1.99 with free shipping from LightintheBox.com.  (Make sure you select the free shipping at checkout, as it doesn't always default there.)


     This mini-Maglite normally sells on Amazon for around $13.00, but it's now priced at its lowest price ever, $8.16 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  These are THE best, most reliable, durable flashlights to have in an emergency.  They come with a special "candle" mode that is absolutely fantastic to have in a power outage.



    Amazon has got this 5-piece Lenox Opal Innocence Carved Dessert set for $24.60 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  This set includes 4 Lenox Opal Innocence Carved dessert plates and one 9" Lennox Opal Innocence Carved cake stand.



    Amazon has this 48-count set of Fiskars Gel Pens for $14.93 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping ($0.31 per gel pen).



    Amazon has got this 12-count package of black fine-point Sharpies for $4.14.  This is an Amazon Add-On item, which means it ships for free with a $25 purchase (and counts towards that $25) if you are a Prime member and ships for free with a $35 purchase (and counts towards that $35) if you are not a Prime member. 




    Amazon has got this set of four green dessert glasses for $11.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping (about $3.00 per dessert glass).  

    It also comes in a multi-color version here, for $11.92 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping for the set.  Both sets are hand-wash only.



    Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears! 150-piece Super Set has dropped back down to $29.98 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping on Amazon. This popular set got 4.5 out of 5 stars over 156 customer reviews.


    Get 20% off these Early Arrival Fall Shoes and Handbags,when you enter promo code ERLYFALL at checkout.  Lots of great finds on women's, men's, kids, boots, shoes, handbags and wallets.









    Amazon has got First Aid Basics:  How to Identify and Treat Life-Threatening Emergencies available for a free download for a limited time. I just downloaded it and skimmed through it.  It is one of those e-books that was never really meant to be an actual book, but just a quick summary of the topic at hand. It give some a few short paragraphs on some very relevant medical emergencies:  anaphylaxis, asthma attacks, bites & stings, bleeding, broken bones, sprains & strains, burns, choking, concussion, dehydration, eye injuries, fever, nosebleeds, and seizures.  

    Since Amazon's #1 seller is the Kindle, they call e-books "Kindle books," but if you don't own a Kindle, it's not a problem at all to read this with ease. Try installing the Universal Kindle Reading App first,  before any of the ones below.   It should work on most devices.








    Nordstrom has this Carole raised oval ring (in sizes 7 and 8) is only $3.98 with free shipping and free returns.

















    Walmart has their Mainstays 6-foot center-fold table in white for only $38.88 with free in-store pickup.  Shipping is either $4.97 or free with a $50.00 minimum purchase (so if you buy two, they ship for free). 



    Amazon has got the MP3 download of Disney's Frozen soundtrack (32 songs) for its lowest price, $3.99.  As you know, Amazon prices flip on a dime, so hurry and download this now, before the price goes back up.




    Amazon has got these Howard Leight Sync noise-blocking stereo earmuff headphones for its lowest price ever, $16.00 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.

    Early bird Rosh Hashana and Sukkot deals, Part 1

    Wow, Rosh Hashana is now only 4 weeks aways.  Gulp.

     I've been getting a raft of emails asking for deals on Rosh Hashana and Sukkot items.  I put together a few early bird deals for those of your who are getting it together in advance (and may you be an inspiration to my sloth).

    I'm going to reiterate what I say every year. On some of these items you might be able to do better in local stores, but please remember that not all of us are fortunate enough to live near wonderful stores like Amazing Savings, and even if you do, the convenience factor of ordering online in the pre-YomTov chaos might outweigh a slight difference in price.  Nevertheless, please make sure you let me know if you find a better price elsewhere online.



    Print this $0.75 coupon off Golden Blossom honey, 24 oz. or larger.

    In my neighborhood, the least expensive place to buy honey for YomTov is Costco:


    This photo was taken this past Pesach, but the price is still good.  Costco has Kirkland Organic Honey, three 24 oz. honeybears for $11.69 ($0.16 per oz.).  This is a fantastic price on honey, let alone organic honey.  These 24 oz. bears are huge, and since they are also kosher for Passover, throw one bear in your year-round Pesach non-perishables box.  For some reason, the Kirkland organic honey is less expensive than the Kirkland non-organic honey (which costs about $0.17 per oz.).  YMMV.

    On to honey dishes.




    Same thing for this Godinger "Jam Jar" with spoon for $9.89 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  Measures approximately 4.5" high x 2.25" in diameter. The spoon is 4.5" long.





    Amazon has got this set of six honey dippers for $10.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping (works out to $1.83 each).  These are great for Rosh HaShana, if you like to have multiple bowls of honey around the table, and you simply cannot beat this price for the six of them.


    Amazon has these gold-plated rose demi spoons for only $11.95 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping on Amazon.  That rose detail on the handle is really pretty.  I know they're meant for coffee. but I can use them for my honey platter and lots of other things (desserts, etc.).  At slightly less than $3 per spoon, the price is definitely right.





    If you're unfamiliar with Subscribe & Save deals, or would just like a few tips on how best to use the Subscribe & Save program, read my shpiel on Subscribe & Save strategies here.  Remember that you don't need to be a member of Amazon Prime to get free shipping on ANY Amazon Subscribe & Save deal...shipping is free for anyone.


    This was circulating around Facebook, and I just had to share. I'm thinking that I'm going to make one of these for each of my Rosh Hashana dinner guests this year. This will make an awesome addition to any Rosh Hashana simanim plate.

    Moving forward to Succos....

    The best price on basic folding chairs is $9.98 at Lowe's.  You can either a) get free shipping when you buy 5 or more (free shipping starts at $49) or b) pick them up for free at a Lowe's store or c) shipping for one to four chairs starts at $5.99. 



    Amazon has got the 160 piece set of Reflections plasticware for $16.18 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.   If you're not familiar with Reflections, they are the heavy duty, silver-colored plasticware that very much resemble actual silverware, and are a big step up from regular plastic utensils.  The 160 pieces include 80 forks, 40 spoons and 40 knives.  That's 40 settings, at $0.40 per setting.   I love this plasticware. If you've got to use paper and plastic, it really dresses up the table.  (Sometimes Costco has this silverware for slightly less than the Amazon price, though I haven't seen it there for almost a year, but it doesn't hurt to call and check.)


    Don't want to bring your Shabbos china out into the Sukkah, but would rather not use paper plates? This set of 50 Masterpiece Premium Quality Heavyweight Plastic Plates (25 10.25" dinner plates and 25 7.5" salad plates) is $25.82 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping on Amazon.   These fancy-shmancy plates are not the most frugal way to go, but they are certainly nicer than regular paper or plastic, and $0.52 per plate is the best price I've seen (though check at Costco if you can, you might do slightly better). 



    If you want to get a little creative about your Sukkot table settings and use disposable tableware, check out Walmart's selections of "Kit N Kaboodle" sets for $19.99 with free in-store pickup (or free shipping with $50 minimum purchase) here.  While I hate it when everything on the table is matchy-matchy, I love the idea of mixing and alternating the different colored sets, like using the gold or silver set with the black or navy set.  Each Kit N Kaboodle set comes with:
    • 24 9" plates
    • 18 7" plates
    • 24 9 oz. cups
    • 50 beverage napkins
    • 50 luncheon napkins
    • 24 each plastic knives, forks and spoons
    • 18" x 54" plastic table cover
    I think this is a great value for $19.99.  Some sets, like the New Purple one at $18.14, are even cheaper than the other colors.



    Walmart also has these Tableware Party Packs for 20 for $18.00-$22.36 (depending on the color) with free in-store pickup or $4.97 shipping.  Same idea, get two sets and mix and match and have some fun.
    • 20 9" dinner plates
    • 20 7" dessert plates
    • 54" X 108" tablecover
    • 24 set of cutlery
    • 20 12oz cups
    • 50 luncheon napkins
    • 50 beverage napkins

    If you're shopping for long tablecloths for Sukkot, this is still one of the best deals around:  Amazon has this 60" x 102" wrinkle- and stain-resistant tablecloth for $9.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  This tablecloth is 8.5' long, so it will fit nicely over your 6' tables.   It comes in 23 colors, and most are around $9.99 (some are slightly less, some are as much as $14.91, a very few charge shipping).   The 60" x 126" for $11.99 is over here.

    These tablecloths are not going to be among your finest linens, but they are durable, wrinkle-free, wash out beautifully, and are a Godsend during an 8 day holiday that is replete with huge meals and laundering restrictions.  You can dress them up with a pretty runner and creative place settings.  I think using one of these tablecloths is much nicer than covering a fine tablecloth covered with plastic, but that's just me.


    • 100% polyester (Dacron)
    • fold over hemmed edge
    • seamless, one-piece design
    • stain & wrinkle resistant, machine washable


    Walmart has their Mainstays 6-foot center-fold table in white for only $38.88 with free in-store pickup.  Shipping is either $4.97 or free with a $50.00 minimum purchase (so if you buy two, they ship for free). 



    We use a jug with a spout like this one in our Sukkah for Netilat Yadayim (washing for bread).  It speeds the meal along, eliminating the need to go back in the house to wash your hands. Amazon has this one for $8.97 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  (During the year, we use it as a water carrier for the car when we go on outings or road trips.)



    Need string lights for your Sukkah? Amazon has got these white ones for $5.49 with free shipping.  I love the way Sukkahs glow at night when they are lined with white string lights.  

    I got this idea from my sister-in-law, Ellen.  Since you can transfer flame on YomTov (but not on Shabbos), why not glam up your Sukkah at night with some beautiful candle chandeliers?  Amazon has this Shabby Elegance Scrollwork Chandelier for $17.61 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping. These hold just 3 candles, so I would use at least two of them.  And NEVER leave candles burning in an unattended Sukkah.  Use tea lights for safety, and if you finish eating before the candles have burned out, bring them in the house with you until they do.



    If you don't mind spending a bit more, I also found this beautiful candle chandelier for $23.34 with free shipping (no Prime account needed).  LOVE this one.


    Nothing like a Sukkah full of bees and wasps to spoil a YomTov. Amazon has got this PIC Wasp Trap for $9.97 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  (You can get a two-pack of these traps (which look pretty similar) for $12.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.)
    • No chemicals or poisons.
    • Trap catches wasps, hornets and yellow jackets.
    • 6 Entry tunnels attract from all directions.
    • Special design that lures insects in and never out.
    • Makes being outdoors safer.




    Finally, planning on taking any trips during Chol HaMoed?  This Folding Pop-Up Travel Sukkah with bamboo schach is $147.97 + $11.99 shipping = $159.96 on Amazon. 

    This is part 1 on my YomTov deals....part 2 will be posted very shortly.  YomTov is a-comin' ladies and gents, so start your engines....
