Need New Dishes for Pesach? Deals on Corelle & Fiestaware!

Are you planning to buy some new dishes for Pesach?

While we will probably be using paper for our first seder – since we’re having 24 people and only have a place setting for 12 – I am a big proponent of real dishes on Pesach.

Not only because you should use your “finest” things at your seder, but also because over the long-run it really will save you money. Not to mention that it’s a lot easier on the environment. If you’ve always just used disposable goods, this might be a good year to start investing in one set of dishes – either meat or dairy – and then save up for the other set next year.

Right now, Amazon has a number of Corelle sets on sale, including the Corelle Livingware Winter Frost 16-Piece Dinnerware Set, Service for 4 for just $24.87. (My husband would say that you could only use this set for dairy, since it’s all white!)

Or, if you want something a bit more colorful, you can get the Corelle Livingware Memphis 16-Piece Dinnerware Set, Service for 4 for $26.76. Both of these are priced $4-7 less than at Target right now, and shipping is free with your Amazon Prime or Amazon Mom membership.

With my rough-and-tumble crew, I really appreciate the indestructibility of Corelle, but if you want something a little fancier, Bon Ton has a great deal right now on Fiestaware. I love all the bright and cheery colors – I think Fiestaware is some of the prettiest, happiest ceramic dinnerware I’ve ever seen!

Right now, the five-piece set – which includes dinner plate, bowl, dessert/salad plate, cup and saucer – is on sale for $26.99. And, if you buy four sets (all the same color), you get the fifth set for free.

Plus there’s a 20% off code, cash back from Shop at Home, and free shipping. Cha-ching!

Here’s how to get the deal:

  • Go to Fiestaware on the Bon Ton site
  • Select four of the five-piece place settings – all four must be the same color – and the free 5th place setting should automatically show up in your cart
  • Use the codes LOVEFREESHIP (for free shipping) and ECMFESTAF11 (to get an additional 20% off) at checkout
  • Your total should be $86.36
  • Don’t forget to click through either Shop at Home (for 3% cash back) or Ebates (also 3% cash back). Both sites give you a $5 bonus when you sign up for a new account and make your first purchase – so if you’re signed up with one, go with the other for the extra $5!
  • After cash back, your total will be just $83.77. Or $78.77 if you get the extra $5. That’s as low as $15.75 per setting, which is more than 40% off the retail price!

Thanks, Cheapskate, for the details on the Fiestaware deal.

Are you planning to get some new dishes this year for Pesach? What other items are you planning to buy? I need some new knives and I’d love a new white table cloth.

  1. Mara, that Memphis set is what I have for dairy dishes! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Would you like me to bring some dishes with me for Pesach?

  2. R. Schwei says
    • Oh no, that link didn’t work for me! But $40 for a setting of 12 is AWESOME! What’s Closeout Connection? (local, I’m assuming)

  3. R. Schwei says

    If you find anything better let me know! Last year I got glass dishes for $40 for a serving of 12 at closeout connection

  4. I’m not Jewish, but I want to comment that we have Fiestaware and we find it to be more substantial than any of our other sets. We have four children, my oldest two are my dishwasher unloaders and table setters and they are 4 and 8. We’ve only broken one piece and we eat on them every night. And I’m the one that broke that bowl. Also, they are pretty easy to find if you break a piece unless your color is retired. I don’t know if certain colors fit in your customs, but we have built a collection of a few colors and it looks amazing on our table. (I sound like I sell this huh? *giggle*)

    Oh and I started following your site for your frugal tips and my son can only have almond, soy or coconut milk. He cannot have cow’s milk so I was looking for recipes without cheese, milk, etc and my friend suggested looking for a kosher website.

    • Thanks so much for your comment, Stepahnie! That’s so funny because I have a non-Jewish friend whose son has a dairy allergy and I told her the same thing (about kosher being helpful). I don’t know how sensitive he is, but if he can’t have whey etc., it’s probably helpful to know that anything marked “pareve” or “P” after the kosher symbol has to be 100% dairy-free (no dairy equipment, no whey, etc.) {You can search for Pareve recipes in my Recipe Exchange series… or just any “meat” recipe… for dairy-free recipes.}

      I love the Fiesta mix and match look and I’m glad to hear that it’s so sturdy! The bit about colors – a lot of people like to “assign” certain colors to be for dairy or meat (as we have to separate these ingredients completely), so they don’t get mixed up. My husband says white and blue = dairy and red = meat. ๐Ÿ™‚ But it’s nothing decreed, just out of convenience.

      • He’s not shown any other sensitivities. We think it is the lactose. We adopted him and we don’t have a full family history for him, so we are just going by symptoms at this point…

        Thanks for that piece of information! Knowledge never hurt anyone. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I can’t beat $40 for service for 12, but since I’m searching for a set of everyday (not Pesach, not Shabbat/Yom Tov) meat dishes, I went to the Bloomingdale’s site today, where you can get a 65-piece package (12 5-piece settings plus completer set) for $99.99.

    For Pesach last year, I bought melamine dishes at Target. Under $2 for dinner plates, and less for salad plates and bowls. Cute, funky, and cheap, cheap, cheap!

  6. I would check on the parve status. I’m not entirely sure that dairy free religious is the same as dairy free for allergies. Check with your allergist.
