Anyone have experience shipping Amazon products to Israel? (If there's a better thread to post this in, pls lmk.) I have 2 questions:

1. If something has an MSRP and regular price of over $70 but is on sale for much less, which value is used when calculating whether Israel will charge taxes on it? (Does Amazon print the reg price on the customs declaration, or sale price? Do the Israelis look at the declaration or open it and evaluate it themselves?)

2. Acc to Israel's tax website: "Two packages or more that are sent from the same supplier to the same customer within up to 72 hours will be considered a single consignment that was split, and import taxes will be calculated based on the aggregate value of all the goods." Practically, is this rule enforced? If I order 15-20 Amazon orders of $60 each, will they tax them?

TIA.

Where can I get an automatic watch fixed?

Ended up using Jonathan Beck in Rechavia. Very quick service and fair price. Highly recommend.

Onions in Jerusalem at a reasonable price.  Does anyone know why onions are now almost 9 sh. a kilo  even at the shuk.  Never have I seen it this high.

Just received a shipment from amazon that was on sale for $50 but on the amazon label, it said $93. If anyone has an idea how to get my tax deposit back that would be great.
thanks

edit: I did use a coupon code and clipped coupon. as @Yehudaa pointed out to me that this could have been the issue.

Update: Got my first package today, sale price of $67.54 and MSRP/Amazon reg price much higher,  no tax charged for it.  Package was ripped open and not even taped shut so I assume they checked it at customs. All contents were intact. I'll try to report back when I get the next couple of packages. May not be within 72 hrs so idk if we'll get to see whether they enforce that rule....

(FYI: Amazon included shipping costs in the total on the shipping label even though Israel isn't supposed to charge tax if shipping puts you over $70.)

Shipped by Amazon or 3rd party?

Did shipping costs put you over $70?

Amazon. Nope. All under $70. They must've used the MSRP plus shipping.

Smaller house one. Been looking for one all week and haven't found one yet. Got a few reactions like I was crazy though. 
I haven't tried a tambor store yet. That's my next step.  Figured I'd ask though.

Want to stock up on Thomy Mayo. Is the stuff they sell in Israel the same stuff that’s all the rage in Switzerland? And where’s the best place to pick some up?
