-You can also get this Fizz model value pack in black or red with 2 carbonating bottles and other included flavors for $74.97 shipped (plus tax if applicable).

On the first checkout page (the page where you enter your address) use the following promo code for 50% off: FNF2013
On the second checkout page (the page where you enter your credit card info) use the following promo code for free shipping: FREEFIZZ

The 50% off coupon is good for all items found on this outlet store page.

The Fizz chip in this model shows you via electronic display how much fizz you’ve put into your bottle and how much CO2 is remaining in your canister!
Just remember to remove the fizz chip if you want to use it on shabbos!  You will still be able to make seltzer without the fizz chip, just the electronic display won’t function until you put it back on again.

All flavors are OU kosher.  The plain selzter is also kosher for passover.

After applying those coupons your total will be $64.97 shipped (plus tax if applicable):
soda

 

 

 

 

I have a sodastream and it is awesome. No more shlepping cases of seltzer home from the store, I can make it in a few seconds from the comfort of my home for a small fraction of the cost of seltzer from a store.
Best of all I can control exactly how fizzy I want my seltzer, you can make it as weak or as strong as you’d like!

The included Co2 canister makes 60 1L bottles of seltzer (or way more than that if you don’t put in as much fizz.) You can exchange the canisters at tons of stores nationwide. Bed Bath and Beyond charges $12 for a refill with one of their ubiquitous 20% off coupons or $10 with a $5 off $15 coupon.

    also, Amazon sells a nifty adapter for $60 that jailbreaks the sodastream so that it could allow the use of paintball gas cans – almost $20 cheaper per fill-up.

    @Josh:
    The chip is battery operated. It can be removed.

    @Yaakov:
    It tells you the fizz level in the bottle you’re carbonating and how much CO2 is remaining in your canister.

    @Matt:
    1. That would depend on how much seltzer you drink.
    2. You can control the fizz level to your exact preference with this.
    3. You don’t have to shlep heavy cases of seltzer as you can make it from your counter.
    4. You can add your own seltzer or soda flavors.

    There are other shabbos concerns when using a soda stream even without batteries or electricity. Ask a competent rabbi. (Hopefully, he holds like the poskim who say it’s ok.) Being an Israeli product, many shu”t have been written about soda stream from gedolai poskei e”y including minchas yitzchak, dayan fisher, & r’ shlomo zalman.

    People mistakenly believe it’s Ossur based on the Maharsham, the Maharsham himself reversed his position on the matter, and permitted it.

    Here is a (partial) list of those who permit it completely on Shabbos:

    שו”ת רב פעלים ח”א או”ח סי’ יח, שו”ת שערי צדק או”ח סי’ לו, שו”ת מהרש”ם ח”ג השמטות דף ב’ ע”ב, שו”ת ארץ צבי (פרומר) סי’ צו, שו”ת יביע אומר ח”י דף קח טור ב

    For further reading see the new edition of Shmiras Shabbos K’hilchasa (Hebrew) Volume 1 Chapter 11 paragraph 36, and in the footnote 147 where he explains that the people who prohibited it were only in the olden days when it was done with a powder, but today when its’s just bubbles being pushed into the water – everyone would agree that it is permitted. He brings all this in the name of the three leading Poskim in Israel: R’ Shlomo Zalman Auerbach (Minchas Shlomo), R’ Eliezer Waldenberg (Tzitz Eliezer), and ybdlc”t R’ Ovadia Yosef (Yabia Omer).

    This is not the place to debate it, both for issur or heter, however, SBS is referring to the issue of making the seltzer. There is a separate issue involving בנין בכלים when screwing on the bottle and gas canister. There is a possible problem according to the חזון איש & שו”ע הרב depending on the scenario. In particular, adding a new gas canister on shabbos could be an issue according to the בעל התניא. Please consult a Rabbi.

    @Lakewood:

    The Alter Rebbe writes in Hilchos Shabbos Siman 314 Seif 9:

    מותר ליתן קנה חלול או שאר ברזא בחבית להוציא בהם היין אע”פ שלא היו מעולם בחבית זו ואינו יודע כלל אם יבואו למדת הנקב של חבית זו…

    Which essentially means that you are allowed to screw a faucet (ברזא) on a barrel of wine on Shabbos even if it wasn’t connected before Shabbos and it’s not considered בנין בכלים. The same applies here, that by screwing the canister into the machine you are not doing בנין בכלים rather just connecting the “faucet” (machine) to the “barrel” (canister).

    Regarding the opinion of the חזון איש, look in the Shmiras Shabbos K’hilchasa that I referenced, where he explains why even acc to the Chazon Ish it is permitted.

    להגדיל תורה, @SBS, I’m referring to או”ח שי”ג סכ”א (of the Alter Rebbe), where he states a shiur of every day. If taken literally, there would be an issue with attaching a new gas canister to the machine. Please, especially if you’re Lubavitch, ask a Rabbi.

    The main point here is that Dan needs to be careful about promoting its use on Shabbos. The deal should be posted and everyone should ask their rabbi. I have no idea whether Dan is aware of the issues and holds or was told that its ok or if he is unaware of some of the potential issues. Either way please remember this is a deal blog. Halachic issues should not be decided here.

    I have the fizz chip and i dont think it is all that smart.

    I think its time based, it isnt smart enough to detect 60 or 120

    the pressure settings are time based, not real time pressure, seems to me and, when pumping it seems as though its a super guestimate..

    Not sure what the point is, grabbed one last DD offer, thanks Dan, it was the 1/2 off then and the non chip was sold out next best thing, awesome selzer shleping saver,

    I ordered one of these units when I first discovered “Dan’s Deals”, a few days ago.

    At half the price, this seemed like an unbeatable deal.
    Today, I received TWO SodaStreams, in seperate boxes.

    This is an unbeleivable deal – and has definitely made me a loyal reader of Dan’s Deals.

    I have just placed another order, and would be super-thrilled if this order is also doubled – as these units will make great gifts.

    How cool – to be able to give a gift worth $120, for a cost of only $30. THANKS, DAN !!!

    The company said that there was a glitch in the system–communication between ordering and warehouse–for a few hours last week. I was told that were no free ‘gifts’ sent, but it only happened to ‘a few’ customers so it wasn’t worth their trouble to recall them. This was their answer when I wanted to know if the same offer would apply to the $149 retail machine instead of the sold out $129 machine. I had found an old coupon stating they would send a free gift, but I was told that the gift was a bottle of syrup or something of that type.

    I think Sodastream pulled a quick one on us. by giving an extra “bonus” one to a few people that ordered right away to get more people to order. Just my opinion…

    is it worth it? or should I cancel my order?

    thanks

    This is a follow-up regarding the order you placed with us. Unfortunately, the Blue Fizz machine has went out of stock. SodaStream would like to replace it with the Blue Source machine. This replacement would be an upgrade as the Source machine is our newest model. If you approve of this upgrade please contact our customer support team at 1.800.763.2258, or simply reply to this email with your decision. We are available 24/7 to assist you.

    I think so, the source machine is the newest model and actually sells at a higher price.
    OR
    if you prefer you can check Y305 posting to get it a few $$ cheaper with the old FIZZ model in Black.

    I ordered the starter kit on impulse, but decided to cancel the order. SodaStream was nice enough to cancel since it was same day and my CC hasn’t been charged yet. I was quite surprised when I received an email with the tracking #, but figured it’s an automatically generated label. The next day when shipment showed movement and CC was charged, I again contacted SodaStream, they said they will recall shipment.
    I ended up receiving the package and contacted SodaStream again to resolve. They advised that they will refund the payment and I can keep BOTH machines!
    Thanks Dan for the great deal!

    Tried to return and they are telling me that its a closeout item and no return.. They are kind enough to help you find that wording on a hidden page!

    Faq states that you can return within 30 days but they claim the faq is on a different website.. are they living in the 90’s?
