Black-Friday-Deals-150pxThe 2015 holiday shopping season has arrived, and both Vitamix and Blendtec have some limited-time sales. (These deals are for orders shipped to the US and Canada.) The sales center on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but they are already live.

(If you’re looking for a Blendtec, jump ahead to Blendtec deals.)

Also note that all of these deals are compatible with the Vitamix payment plans. (You can pay for your purchase over 3 or 5 months with no added interest or finance charges, and your order will ship after the first payment.)

(US Only) Certified Reconditioned machines are always a good deal, since they are guaranteed to be as good as new, so this extra discount is particularly appealing.
  • With purchase of new C-Series or G-Series machines, you will get a $40 credit towards your next Vitamix.com purchase ($30 Canadian for Vitamix.ca). Code will be emailed once purchase is complete. [extended through Dec 30]

QVC Dry Container Deal [expired]

Vitamix Dry Container DealYou can get a Vitamix dry container for just $50 plus $5 shipping. No additional purchase necessary. This deal could end at any time.

Ongoing Vitamix Deals

For the time being, Vitamix US is continuing their sale pricing on the Pro 750, with the biggest reduction on the Brushed Stainless finish, which is normally a $50 premium. For lower-priced models, the reconditioned S30 price reduction appears to be holding steady at $259, and the red reconditioned 7500 is $429. If all the models confuse you, feel free to leave a comment, contact me, or see my Vitamix comparison page. For Canadian customers looking for a deal, the Certified Reconditioned Standard 5200 is hard to beat price-wise.

Blendtec Deals

Black Friday Week (Nov 25 through Cyber Monday) [expired, but refurbished still offers great value]

  • Blendtec-professional-800-wildside-refurbAdditional $50 off factory-refurbished Blendtec models. This is a great opportunity to pick up the lowest-priced high-performance blender, with either basic features, a touchscreen, or a built-on sound enclosure:
  • $50 discount on any container bought with a new or refurbished machine. Enter code BLACKFRIDAY2015 in shopping cart. I highly recommend the Twister Jar for making sorbet, ice cream, and nut butter.

Blendtec Classic Series Black Friday 1Blendtec-Designer-625Note that while Blendtec calls these machines “Certified Refurbished,” and Vitamix calls their similar machines “Certified Reconditioned,” there is no difference other than the word. Both Vitamix and Blendtec refurbish/recondition their machines at their factory and guarantee them to work as good as new. They also give them the same level of warranty support as their new machines.

Free Shipping

As usual, free shipping will be applied in your cart if you click any of the links from this page.

Black Friday Pricing Note

One other thing to note about Vitamix Black Friday deals is that Vitamix has pricing agreements with most of its retailers that prevent retailers from discounting Vitamix machines. Probably for this reason, I have never seen a Vitamix doorbuster advertised at a brick-and-mortar store. I am less certain about Blendtec’s agreements, but generally Blendtec machines are not sold in brick-and mortar stores.

International Availability

These deals are only available for orders shipping to the US and Canada. If you are outside the US and have access to a US shipping address, you can place a Vitamix phone order at 1-800-848-2649, and you can use promotion code 06-007021 for free shipping. If you cannot receive your order in the US or Canada, consult Vitamix’s International distributors.

Happy shopping!

Black Friday Vitamix & Blendtec Deals, Updated 2016 — 69 Comments

  1. Will Canadians be able to get the discounts as well if the reconditioned 5200s are on sale? like if it is on Black Friday. Thanks!

  2. Hi and thank you for your very informative site. I think I’ve narrowed it down to ordering a reconditioned standard programs machine and you suggest waiting until Black Friday to save $50. Do you know if your link for free shipping will still work at that time? Right now, free shipping saves me $62, so that is a better deal than saving $50 but paying for shipping. Thoughts?

  3. I wanted to purchase a refurb 2 speed and an extra container. Your site directed me to a great price for the refurb but I can’t seem to get the extra container to show at $50.00 (the free shipping is working).
    Is the $50.00 extra container only for NEW and not for refurb?
    Thank you

  4. Hello,

    You mention that during Black Friday week, starting today, November 24, 2015, the Certified Reconditioned Standard Programs machine and extra container is discounted $50.00. I wanted to know, is there a promo code that you have to enter to receive the discount or will it be automatically applied once you have checked out? I recently tried adding both items to my cart but both they are not showing any discounted prices but rather full prices. Love your website, btw, it is very informative.

    Thank you for all of your help,
    Romy

    • The Reconditioned Standard Programs discount is now working. The extra container discount does not appear to be working yet, and I am trying to find out what is going on with it.

  5. FYI, it now appears as though all colors except the Brushed Stainless Steel of the Reconditioned Standard Programs Vitamix machine is $329; the Brushed Stainless Steel color is still priced at $399.

  6. Thanks—I ordered a refurbished model just now instead of having to wait until Friday—woo hoo! I even had a reminder set but now it’s already on the way.

  7. I purchased a Pro 750 a couple years ago that comes with a large 64oz wide container. But I am wanting a small wet 32 oz container now (for small quantity). Do you know the best way to get one with a (significant) discount? I also need a tamper. Would a classic tamper work on a 32oz wet container or must I get a mini tamper? Thanks!! CH

    • 32OZ Web Container used to come with a mini-Tamper. It does not appear to be part of the standard package now, which means I need to purchase that separately. Is my understanding correct?

      • The G-Series tamper from your 750 cannot be used with the 32-oz containers. (On the other hand, the tall tamper from the tall C-Series models has a taper that allows it to be used on the 32- and 48-oz containers.) The mini tamper is made for the 32-oz and 48-oz containers, and can be purchased separately.

    • I forgot to add, I do have a 32oz Dry Container and no mini-temper. The reason I think I need a 32oz Wet container is that I like to chop onions, tomatoes, vegetables in small quantity to save me time from manual chopping/dicing. If you think I could use other containers (other than 32oz wet container) to get the same result, that would save me a lot of money and time and money. Thanks!! CH

      • For chopping, the dry container is actually better than the wet one, so if that is the main thing you have in mind, the 32-oz wet container is probably not worth it. It would only be worth it if you find yourself wanting to blend smaller amounts of liquids than the wide container can do. (For small smoothies, sauces, nut butters, or sorbets.)

        • Thanks Adam. Would Dry Container still be effective at chopping/dicing tomatoes (in a small batch) since tomatoes do produce some juice once chopped/diced? Happy (belated) Thanksgiving! CH

          • The dry container will work better than the wet for chopping, even though the tomatoes will release juice. But note that since tomatoes are so soft, it’s not going to be the sort of precise dice you’d get with a knife.

        • I am thinking about using the dry container to make a small batch of salsa, which typically has tomatoes, onions, avocados, lime juice. Since pomegranate is in season (or almost post season), even some pom’s. So it doesn’t need an exact chop but it would save a lot of time on food prep manually. Would the dry container work in this application?

          • Yes, the dry container should work for that. A few tips: quarter the tomatoes, onions, and avocado before adding. Then keep the speed not too high; say speed 4 or so, and pulse it. Depending on your ingredients, for something like this you might end up wanting a mini tamper.

          • Great news and solution on saving me time and money! I can’t wait to try it. Thanks or the extra tips.

  8. I have read several comments on different web sites that the ” old ” taller containers blend better than the newer G series containers ( the one that suppose to fit under most counter tops ) any truth to this? and do you still stand by your comment that your favorite machine is still the 7500? thank you for your comments

    • There is some truth to that, which is, for small amounts the wide G-Series containers do not work as well as the narrow containers. That is why I use a 32-oz container in combination with my 7500, which gives the best of both worlds.

      If you want to be able to easily blend down to ~1 cup of liquid with minimal hassle, then you should either get a C-Series machine, or a G-Series with an extra container. If you are going to be mostly blending large amounts, the G-Series containers are great, and you don’t need a smaller container.
