Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2014 Vitamix & Blendtec Deals [Expired]

Dec. 2 Update: The Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales have expired. However, there are two new Vitamix special offers for the month of December.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2014 are here, and both Vitamix and Blendtec have a few limited-time sale offerings for the holiday shopping season. The deals this year are similar to last year’s, except some are better.

Like last year, the best savings are on reconditioned models from both Vitamix and Blendtec. (If you’re looking for a Blendtec, jump ahead to Blendtec deals.)

Reconditioned Vitamix Deals

Reconditioned Vitamix 5200: The hottest Black Friday deal of 2014For this week only (starting today, November 24th 2014, and running through Cyber Monday, December 1st) the Reconditioned Vitamix 5200 is even further discounted to $285. This is the lowest price ever for this model! The additional discount applies to black, red, and white units.

This is the Vitamix I recommend for price-conscious buyers. I think it’s a good deal at $329, and at $285 it’s an excellent deal. If you’ve been on the fence, now’s the time to buy. In case you do not already know, Reconditioned Vitamix machines are just as good as new. The only functional difference is that the warranty is 5 years instead of 7, although if you want a longer warranty you can add a three-year extension for $75. So, for $360, you could have a machine with an 8-year warranty—cheaper than new, and with a longer warranty. (The warranty service level is identical between new and reconditioned—everything is covered for the full period.)

You can also take an additional $30 off the Reconditioned Standard w/ Programs (6300/Pro 500 down to $349). We’ve seen this discount before, but it’s still an excellent deal.

I have long thought reconditioned Vitamix machines are the best deal, and these extra discounts makes them that much better. When I buy for myself, or as gifts, I buy reconditioned, as do the Vitamix employees who I have talked to.

Reconditioned Vitamix Next GenerationAlso, Vitamix recently reduced the price on the Reconditioned G-Series (7500) by $20 to $439, and the Reconditioned G-Series Programs (Pro 750) by $10 to $519. (If the model/color you want is currently out of stock, you can sign up for my availability notification alerts.)

Vitamix Dry Container $50 Deal

Vitamix dry containerThere is a Vitamix container deal still running where you can buy a dry container for $50 (down from $144). No added purchase necessary. (Detailed dry container deal write-up)

 

Any Vitamix Container $50 with a New 5200

If you don’t want to buy reconditioned (even though Reconditioned Vitamix machines are as good as new), you can add any container to an order of a new 5200 for just $50. Just add them both to your cart along with coupon code 06-007021 (applied automatically if you click any link from this site), and you should see the discount in your cart.

Refurbished Blendtec Deals

Blendtec Classic Series Black Friday 1Similar to Vitamix, you can take an additional $30 off of Blendtec certified refurbished units. Starting Nov 26th and running through Cyber Monday, Dec 1, the additional Blendtec discount is increased to $50 off certified refurbished units!

You can get a Blendtec Total Blender for as low as $209.95 if you want their slightly more compact jar. Otherwise the Total Blender is $229.95 with the wider “WildSide” jar. These are the lowest prices ever!

If you want a sleeker machine with touch control and a speed slider (instead of up-down speed buttons) you can step up to the Blendtec Designer Series for $329.95, which comes with the WildSide jar.

Blendtec Designer series Black Friday 2Note 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

The reconditioned Vitamix deals are only available within the US. If you are outside the US and have access to a US shipping address, you can place a phone order at 1-800-848-2649, and you can use promotion code 06-007021 for free shipping. The refurbished Blendtec deals can ship to both the US and Canada.

Expiration

The current word is that these deals are good through Cyber Monday, December 1st 2014, or while supplies last. In the past these sorts of deals have occasionally run longer than the initially stated expiration, but to be on the safe side you should get your order in as soon as possible because at these prices certain models/colors may sell out. I will try to update this page as soon as the deals are no longer live.

Happy shopping!

P.S. If you’re wondering why some comments date back to last year, I originally published this page a year ago. I have now completely updated it to reflect the best Blendtec and Vitamix Black Friday 2014 deals, but I decided to keep last year’s comments intact. Thank you for your comments!

Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2014 Vitamix & Blendtec Deals [Expired] — 40 Comments

  1. I wonder IF anybody will have any special Mother’s Day packages available? I’m so tempted by the 750 but it is a bit high next choice would be 7500.

  2. Everyone posts links to the reconditioned link for Vitamix but they all lead to the main products page and I can’t find the reconditioned page ANYWHERE! Can someone tell me why & how to I find it?
    thanks!

    • The reconditioned links don’t work if you trying to view them from a non-US IP address, and Vitamix will not send reconditioned machines outside the US. If you have access to a US shipping address you can place a phone order.

      • I just tried ordering online from the USA (I’m a visiting Canadian citizen) and even have a USA address that I can use. However during the method of payment to use my Canadian credit card – it stopped me dead in my tracks because the shipping address didn’t match my billing address. Plus there were no dropdown options for any Canadian provinces. So bummed that I cannot order a re-furbished product. Why is that the case??

        • My guess that it didn’t let your order through due to some automated fraud prevention system. Last I heard, if you have a US shipping address you can place an order on the phone, even if you have a credit card from another country. So try giving them a call (800-848-2649), and hopefully they’ll be able to take your order. Remember that you can still use my free shipping promo code on the phone, just mention code 06-007021.

          • Wow Adam you certainly are on top of things!! This website is fantastic and during the last day I have become such an informed consumer. (Even the lady at the Williams-Sonoma store was impressed by my knowledgeable answers to my research! – She even didn’t know there was more than just the Professional Line). Anyways Adam I will try calling tomorrow (tried calling today after hours) but do you know for sure if they are open tomorrow (Sunday?). Btw just to confirm I’m wishing to order a refurbished Professional 750 model – those exist yet since it’s such a new item!??

          • I don’t know if they will be open Sunday, but I’m guessing that they will be. If not, they’ll definitely be open Monday.
            The Pro 750 has been around for about 18 months, so there’s been plenty of time for reconditioning….

  3. I have read and enjoyed every post on this site. I just returned the 6300 I purchased to Costco and plan on purchasing a refurbished one from Vitamix. The question is which one. I use mine for ice cream and smoothies. I have a 5000 currently and from reading the posts I understand that the containers from the 5000 will fit on the 7500. Correct. If so, that would take care of my needing to mix small quantities. Do you know if making I ice cream in the 7500 is easier? And you believe that the power of the 5200, 6300, and 7500 to be the same ?
    Thank you for your time.

    • Yes, the 5000 containers will fit the 7500. Making ice cream in the 7500 is similar to making it in the other machines. (You still need the tamper.) The one main thing to keep in mind is that if you use the wide container the minimum amount to blend well is a bit more.
      The power of the different models is similar enough that I don’t think it makes a difference.

  4. Thank you for keeping on top of it. I hunted down the same deal from Vitamix and just took the plunge for a refurb 5200. I wanted a dry container but no can do even with the $50 off. It’s a lot of money still for us; it’s my and DH’s Krismas this year. I’m so excited. I have not been reading your blog for long, but I have to say that yours is one of the best one I’ve come across about blending. Thanks again for sharing all this info.

  5. Am I the only one who can’t get their shopping cart to work? I follow the link, click to put the item I want in the cart, and it tells me there’s been a problem and to call. Any idea what’s going on?

    • That’s weird. I would recommend clearing your cookies and trying again. (Their phone lines are probably pretty backed up right now.) I just tested and was able to get to the checkout page…

  6. Apparently just the whims of computers and the internet…I received the “something has gone wrong” message on two different computers while using Firefox. When I tried using IE I couldn’t even get to the product page for the item I wanted (I could get to the main product page, but nothing happened when I clicked on any individual product…like a void javascript or something). When I tried using Chrome, everything worked like a charm and I had my order placed within about a minute. Yea! :-)

    So if anyone else does have this problem, try a different browser.

  7. Sadly, I missed the Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals on the VitaMix website. Do you think they’ll run another special in December? Thanks!

  8. Is it weird that I ordered on December 2 and a week later still haven’t received a shipment notification? If that’s normal it’s fine, I’m not in a big rush. It’s just that after the trouble I had getting my order placed I’m concerned something could be wrong somewhere.

    • Unless you paid extra to expedite, that is still within the normal range. Standard orders ship in 7-10 business days (as per their FAQ), so you should give it another week before starting to worry. During less busy times of the year non-expedited orders often get shipped in a week or less, but I’m not surprised that it’s taking a little longer now.

  9. I am looking into buying a vitamix 7500 reconditioned however Costco has the demo going on for the 6300 for $499 I’m trying to figure out if vitamix usually has these Black Friday deals every year because in that case I can wait, do you know if this is a year they should be having it? Thank you!

    • I don’t know exactly what will happen for Black Friday, but based on the past couple years I can guess. There will probably not be any lower prices on machines than what is currently available. There may be a deal on containers. Last year you could take advantage of the container deal without buying a machine at the same time, so I don’t think there’s any reason to put off buying a machine.

      If you’re considering the 6300, do you know that the reconditioned 6300 (aka Standard Programs) is currently discounted to $349? Major savings compared to Costco.

      Vitamix does not usually run promotions on the 7500 (reconditioned or new), although they did recently reduce the reconditioned 7500 price by $20.

    • I believe you can use a payment plan for these refurbished deals. (For the Vitamix payment plan you have to call 1-800-848-2649, then please mention promotion code 06-007021 for free shipping.) The Blendtec payment plan is available from the shopping cart, and free ground shipping should be applied if you click a Blendtec link from this site. (Blendtec usually has a $275 minimum to use the payment plan, but I think they might be waiving that for these offers—I am not 100% sure though.)

  10. Hi Adam, I’m not seeing the Standard reconditioned Vitamix 5200 at $285 but at $299? Do you know if there was a change in the deal or do you need a coupon code or something? Thanks, Sarah

  11. The price I’m seeing for the refurbished Vitamix 5200 is $299. When will it be discounted to $285? I am chiefly interested in the Vitamix to make almond milk. Will this model be sufficient? Thanks for all the great advice!

  12. Hi Adam!
    Interested in a reconditioned 5200 or a reconditioned pro 750.
    What are the advantages of each and how do I do about making a purchase and getting these amazing deals shown abobe?

  13. Thanks so much for the info. I just purchased a refurb. 5200 from Vitamin and plan on getting the $50 dry container. Woohoo! I make smoothies every day pretty much for my family of 6 and my poor blender is End of Life! Looking forward to giving the VitaMix a try. If it ends up not working for me I can always return it with their fantastic return policy. I’m sure it won’t disappoint though.
