6-pack of LED 60 watt equivalent light bulbs for $37.31 ($6.22 per LED bulb)


Amazon has got this 6-pack of LED 60-watt equivalent soft white bulbs for $37.31 ($6.22 per bulb) with free shipping.  This 6-pack was over $44.00 for quite some time, so I'm really pleased to see the current price. 

LEDs are much more efficient that incandescent bulbs and don't contain the mercury that's in CFLs (though they do contain lead, please be aware).  They come with a 3-year warranty.
  • Replaces standard incandescent 60-watt light bulb
  • Non-dimmable 
  • Looks like a traditional A19 bulb
  • Lifespan: 18.3 years
  • Operating costs per year: $1.03
  • Lifetime savings: $678.00

Reflections "silverware," service for 40 for $14.10 ($0.35 per setting)


Amazon has got the 160 piece set of Reflections plasticware for $14.10 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.  Reflections are now an Amazon #1 Best Seller.

The 160 pieces include 80 forks, 40 spoons and 40 knives.  That's 40 settings, at $0.35 per setting.   I love this plasticware. If you've got to use paper and plastic, it really dresses up the table.

Because the price on Reflections usually hovers around $16-$17 on Amazon, you might want to pick up a box now at this lower price and set it aside for Pesach.

One of the place settings that I used for Sukkot.
Everything that you see here is disposable.

(Sometimes Costco has this silverware for less than the Amazon price, though I haven't seen it there for a while, but it doesn't hurt to call and check.)

SIX PATTERNS STILL AVAILABLE: BOGO + 15% off on Anchor Hocking flatware sets at Oneida: service for 8 for $23, service for 16 for $46


UPDATE:  4 out of 10 patterns have completely sold out and the other 6 patterns are now on back-order, but you can still purchase them and lock in this price.  If you'd like to take advantage of this killer deal, please plan to make your purchase soon.


Anchor Hocking Bentley
Oneida has got a fantastic offer today on select 20-piece Anchor Hocking flatware patterns:  buy-one-get-one-free (BOGO)!  And on top of that, you can use promo code ST15 to save an additional 15%.  Since these sets are priced at $26.99, it's like getting each of these sets for $11.47!  Wow!

You'll get free shipping on your $99 purchase before the discount, which means that if you buy 4 sets (or more), you'll get free shipping, even though the amount you actually pay will be more like $46.  If you buy two sets, shipping is a flat $2.99.

The only rules that apply to this promo is that 1) you must purchase the 20-piece sets in multiples of two in order to get the BOGO discount and 2) the sets must be the same pattern.

If you're thinking ahead and need a new silverware set for Pesach, or for a wedding gift, or if you're just tired of your current set, or if your 2 year old has been secretly throwing out your salad forks, this is a great opportunity to score a brand new set at less than half price, once you apply the BOGO and additional 15% discount.

Here are the ten sets that are included in this promo (Anchor Hocking 20-piece, service for 4 sets).  They are all 18/0 stainless steel, and all $26.99, so after the discounts are applied, you'll score two sets (service for 8) for $22.94, four sets (service for 16) for $45.88, etc.  The BOGO discount will be automatic, and the additional 15% off will be applied when you enter promo code ST15.  Because of the pricing, the maximum number of sets that you are allowed to purchase at this discount is ten. This is an incredible deal on flatware.

PRICE DROP: Kosher Dried Fruit Basket for $8.63 (and a ton of other kosher gift baskets $20 and under) on Amazon. Still time for a Purim delivery!


This Broadway Basketeers Dried Apricot and Date Gift Box is now priced at $8.63 on Amazon.  This basket is kosher-pareve (under the OU).  It weighs in at 1.5 lbs., so this is really a great price...like paying $5.75 per lb. for the dried fruit and including shipping.  Try to get a kosher dried fruit platter for that price anywhere!  

Now, this is an Amazon Add-On item, which means that it ships for free with a $25 minimum order if you are an Amazon Prime member (and the $8.63 price counts towards that $25), or each ships for free with a $35 minimum order if you're not a Prime member.   So if you're a Prime member and order three of these dried fruit boxes, your total will be $25.89 and it will all ship free.  And if you order multiples of this gift box, you can have each sent to a different address at no extra charge!

(If for some reason you need a "filler" item to get free shipping, don't forget about my favorite Amazon "filler," this box of 12 mini binder clips for 45 cents.)

With Purim only a week away, I think these would make amazing Mishloach Manot (aka Shalach Manos, aka Purim Baskets) for friends and family who are out of town, and the price is definitely right. Order them now and with Prime shipping, they will still arrive before Purim.  You can also order them and ship them to yourself to give out locally.

If you'd like to see other low-priced kosher gift baskets, check out Broadway Basketeers full Amazon line here.  I spotted 16 kosher gift baskets for $20 or under, so there's quite a selection.

BACK AGAIN: Frog salt and pepper shakers, $8.73, great for the seder table. Buy NOW for Passover.



The price on these cute froggie salt and pepper shakers had zipped up for a while, but they are back at $8.73 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  Buy them NOW for Passover, because, not surprisingly, they tend to both rise in price and then sell out around Pesach-time.  We used these at our seder last year, and they were a huge hit, especially with our friends' kids.   Each shaker is approximately 3.5" high.

NEW ITEMS ADDED: Shipping fee on Prime Pantry is waived; get great deals like Tide pods for 18 cents each and more


UPDATE:  tons of new items and coupons were added to your Prime Pantry option.  This free shipping promotion is now more worthwhile than ever.

Remember this deal back in December, where Amazon waived the Prime Pantry $5.99 shipping fee if you purchased 3 select products?  Since then, they've had other free shipping offers, but you had to purchase five items and the mandatory item were priced pretty high.  Well, guess what?  The December deal is back!  And I think it might be even better.

But let's start from the beginning.

Prime Pantry is a program that Amazon added to its Prime membership this past year.   In a nutshell, Amazon Prime members get to add up to 45 lbs. worth of household, food, personal and beauty items to a Prime Pantry box, and it gets delivered to your house for $5.99.  The advantage of the Prime Pantry program over, say, Amazon's Subscribe & Save is that 1) you don't need to buy in bulk quantities, and 2) some of the items are very well-priced.

But for me, that $5.99 shipping just kills the deal every time, no matter how well-priced the Prime Pantry items are.  That's the reason that I've rarely recommended a Prime Pantry deal on Daily Cheapskate (and why you won't see them on most other blogs).   I just don't think Prime Pantry deals are in your best frugal interest, especially when you can get such fantastic bargains on Amazon Subscribe & Save.

But with this promotion, Amazon will waive that $5.99 delivery charge if you purchase any combination of three select items to your Prime Pantry shopping cart.

Well, that changes everything, doesn't it?  Once you add three of the select items to your cart, you can continue filling it until you hit 45 lbs. (Amazon will let you know about the weight).

Here are five items on that "select" list that were really good buys:











If you bought any three of these (or multiples of the same item, as long as you had three minimum) you would score a waiver of the $5.99 shipping, which will show up on the very last screen with your shopping cart, before you click on the "Place your order" button.  Make sure that when you are done shopping, you doublecheck that the $5.99 shipping is waived in your shopping cart.

Then, as long as your Prime Pantry box isn't full, you can continue to add Prime Pantry items to your shopping cart until you have reached the 45 lb. limit, and Amazon will tell you when you have reached that limit.  Some nice buys:
If you'd like to browse through Prime Pantry items with coupons, they are here.

Remember that (unlike Subscribe & Save) you need to be an Amazon Prime member in order to use Prime Pantry.  You can always sign up for a 30-day free Prime membership here if you're not already a member.

How to save a small fortune on Passover shopping without clipping a coupon


Ok, here's a very, very simple tip that will save you a bundle on your Passover shopping.  I know that you don't want to think about it now, as we are barely a week away from Purim, but here goes.

Buy your kosher meat and poultry now, before Purim.  Fill up your freezer.

That's it.

Many of us have a ton of guests for Passover, and so many of our dinners are meat and poultry based meals.  But kosher meat and poultry prices go up astronomically the day after Purim.  Do you know why kosher vendors do that?  Because they can.  Because kosher consumers will wake up and start shopping for Passover after Purim has passed because they "can't deal with it before."

Deal with it.  Clean out your freezer and stock up on your kosher meat and poultry now and you will save a ton.  (Plus, you will have the bonus of having already cleaned out your freezer for Pesach, yay!)

Pre-order this "new" Dr. Seuss book "What Pet Should I Get?" for $13.49


While the great and brilliant Dr. Seuss (aka Theodor Seuss Geisel) passed away in 1991, a new book of his will be published posthumously in late July of this year.  His widow and secretary discovered two unpublished manuscripts and illustration sets among his things in 2013.  The first one, entitled What Pet Should I Get? (which is estimated to have been written between 1958 and 1962) will be released by Random House on July 28, 2015, and you can pre-order it now on Amazon in hardcover for $13.49 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.

The great thing about pre-ordering anything from Amazon is their pre-order price guarantee:  order now and if the Amazon price decreases between your order time and the end of the day of the release date, you'll receive the lowest price.  So you really can't lose with this one.

This is such an exciting and special gift to classic children's literature.  Even though we don't have kids, we are big Dr. Seuss fans, and we can't wait to get the first edition of this book.  Read more about it here.

LAST CHANCE: today (2/24/15) is the last chance to get these super-popular magazine subscriptions for only $5.00. Real Simple, Cooking Light, Money, Sunset, InStyle, Fortune, and more...


LAST CHANCE for this promotion!  Today is the last day to get these high-end magazine subscriptions for only $5.00!

If you've already gotten them for yourself, these make wonderful gifts and are so easy to send.  

Amazon is currently promoting some sweet $5.00 magazine subscriptions over here (through 2/24/15).  Yes, they auto-renew, but you can easily shut that down in a click (see below for easy instructions).  Here were my four favorites:
By the way, if you already have a subscription to these magazines, this deal is also good on renewals as well, even if you didn't buy them from Amazon originally (just use the same name and address that you used to subscribe; check your magazine mailing label).  Your subscription will be extended by another 12 issues.

These can also be sent as gift subscriptions as well, and Amazon will let you send a little note with the gift.

Here's what you do to shut down that auto-renewal: right after you subscribe, under your Amazon account, click on the Manage Magazine Subscriptions link, find the name of the magazine you just subscribed to and de-select the auto-renewal option.  Voila, no more auto-renewal!

One year (13 issues) of Consumer Reports for $19.99


Subscribe to Consumer Reports for just $19.99 per year, when you enter promo code DAILYCHEAPSKATE at checkout. You can lock in this price for up to two years. The $19.99 per year covers 13 issues ($1.54 per issue) and is good on new subscriptions, gifts and renewals, with no auto-renewal.  The digital version of Consumer Reports is also included with your print subscription, which I love, because it's easier to digitally search on brands, etc..  This deal is good through tomorrow, 2/25/15.

Though I've said this many times on Daily Cheapskate, I think it's worth saying again. On  a personal note,  I consider my subscription to Consumer Reports as a smart investment in making good choices.  The $20 a year that I spend on the subscription has probably saved me hundreds (thousands?) in NOT buying poor quality items that have large marketing budgets. We used Consumer Reports to research our kitchen appliances, our back yard furnishings, our computer peripherals, our iPads, our phones;  it even helped us decide what brand of paint to use when we repainted.  We've used Consumer Reports for pretty much every important purchase we've made in recent years. I'm going to need a new (used) car this year, and you better believe I'll be scouring CR to see which models/years to avoid.

AND, while it's not mentioned on DiscountMags as part of the deal, each year that we've subscribed to Consumer Reports through DiscountMags, we've received the Consumer Reports Buying Guide for FREE, which is an incredible tool for avoiding lemon purchases.


Just parenthetically, the very first time we received Consumer Reports was when we moved into our first (and current) house, and a dear friend bought it for us as a housewarming gift.  It was, hands down, the best and most practical housewarming gift we've ever gotten, and we've been subscribers ever since.
