Buying Items On Sale During The Three Weeks

Updated: Jun 27, 2023

The Daily Halacha Moment - Items on Sale During Three Weeks 🧥

״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


May one purchase items on sale during the Three weeks?

May one purchase Teffilin/Sefarim etc during the Three weeks?


If items are on sale during this time and will not be on sale after Tisha B’av, one may

purchase them to avoid a financial loss, provided that one wears and or uses the item bought after Tisha B’av. [1]

Similarly, one may purchase a new pair of Tefillin or a Tallit during this time, since these are

needed for Mitzvot. [2] Furthermore, sefarim may be purchased even if it will make one happy, being that an item for a mitzvah is permitted to be purchased. Similarly, one may purchase a new bookshelf for

the Sefarim. [3]

One should not purchase a car during this time. However, if one needs the car for

business or if the car is on sale one may purchase it. [4]

[2]. Chazon Ovadia, Arba Taaniyot, Pg. 168; Igrot Moshe O.C. 3:80. It's good to note, that one does not recite Shehechiyanu upon wearing Teffilin even upon wearing them for the first time (See Yalkut Yosef 37(3):6-7).
