More Amazon deals on "Look-Like-Real" disposable tableware. Takes a month to arrive so you must order in advance in order to receive in time for Yom Tov.



Last night, I posted a deal on this very modern-looking "looks-like-real" disposable tableware set, which sold out within about 2 hours.  Since then, I've gotten a ton of emails from you guys asking for other deals on "looks-like-real" disposable tableware sets.  

Truth is, I am always on the hunt for the "looks-like-real" disposable tableware sets.  I use them almost exclusively over Sukkot and Pesach, and they are also terrific for simchas. They are a major step up from regular plastic and paper tableware and look beautiful on the table, but after use, they can go right in the trash, no cleanup, no waiting for Yom Tov to be over so that you can run the dishwasher.

Until now, the least expensive place to buy these sets has always been Amazing Savings, a small chain of discount stores on the East Coast, that sadly, don't sell anything online.  So I've been using their prices as a benchmark for comparison of online prices.

With very few exceptions, most of the deals on "look-like-real" tableware on Amazon are at least 20% to 30% more expensive than Amazing Savings.  For a long time, I've been resolved to hauling these sets home from Brooklyn whenever I go back to visit my family.  But I always keep checking, and happily, perseverance pays off.

I posted most of these deals back in July and the prices have not changed all that much, in most cases, not at all.  I actually bought both the lace and the silver set on 7/5/16 and they arrived on 7/31/16, almost 4 weeks later, so I want you to be aware that if you need these for Yom Tov, they will take a month to get to you.  This year, Sukkot falls out on the evening of 10/16/16, so you've still got plenty of time, but if you want these in time for Succos, I urge you to order them NOW to err on the side of caution.

In the spirit of accuracy, I want to disclose that the Amazing Savings prices that I'm quoting are on plates that look the same as the ones on Amazon, but they might be a different brand.  Since I've actually ordered and received some of the Amazon sets that I'm posting, I can tell you that in my opinion, they are of the same quality and practically identical design to the ones sold on Amazing Savings.


Amazon has got this Table To Go 'I Can't Believe Its Plastic' 50-count Ivory Lace Plate Set for $16.09 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping. (FYI, the ones that I ordered and received were definitely white and not ivory.) This set includes:
  • 25 - 10" dinner plates (Amazing Savings price for 10 = $4.99, so for 25 it would be $12.50 )
  • 25 - 7.5" salad plates  (Amazing Savings price for 10 = $3.99, so for 25 it would be $10.00 )
If I bought these at Amazing Savings, they would cost me a total of $22.50.
