Black Friday and Cyber Monday Vitamix and Blendtec Deals

May 2014 update: Check out the Vitamix Mother’s Day Sale.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2013 are upon us, and both Vitamix and Blendtec have a few limited-time sale offerings. I initially wrote about Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals last year, and I’ve decided to revamp and republish this post rather than continue tacking things onto the old one.

Update: The limited-time Vitamix deals have expired, but the Blendtec deals have been extended indefinitely.

Blendtec deal #1

Blendtec Classic Series Black Friday 1As I previously mentioned, Blendtec reduced their Refurbished Total Blender by an additional $105, bringing it down to $279.95. This price is $175 less than that of a new unit, and it is guaranteed to be just as good, as refurbished Blendtec machines come with a comprehensive 7-year warranty. Price valid through the end of December, or while supplies last.

Blendtec deal #2

Blendtec Designer series Black Friday 2This one isn’t quite as hot of a deal as the first Blendtec deal, but it’s still solid. If you want one of the newer fancier Blendtecs with the slick touch interface, they have recently started offering them reconditioned for $379.95, a savings of $75 or $120 for metallic compared to new. You can choose the color you like from their Certified Refurbished page.

Free Shipping

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

I will update this page with any new deals that come along. Happy shopping!

The Black Friday Vitamix sale offerings are approximately the same as last year, with the addition of the Reconditioned discounts that have been going on this month. It appears that all of these deals will be good through Cyber Monday. If you are not familiar with the differences between the different Vitamix models you may want to review my Vitamix comparison page.

Vitamix deal #1 [expired]

Vitamix 5200 Black Friday 1Buy a new 5200 (“Getting Started”), and you can add any container for $50, a savings of $79–$99. This deal will be applied automatically in your cart once you add a new 5200 and a container along with the usual promotion code of 06-007021.

Vitamix deal #2 [expired]

Vitamix dry container$50 off any container, with no other requirements. You need to click this link for the codes to apply.

Vitamix deal #3 [expired]

Vitamix certified reconditionedAdditional $30 off Reconditioned Standard (5200) and Reconditioned Standard w/ Presets (6300/Pro 500) models. This deal has been going for the month of November, and I previously posted about it. This one is my favorite and I think it’s the strongest deal. The reconditioned units are as good as new, and they are a great value.

Vitamix has been inconsistent in their communications on whether these deals are good until November 30 or December 2. I suspect that they will be good through Cyber Monday, December 2nd, but to be on the safe side try to order by November 30. If you miss that date, you can still try to use these links. I will try to update this page when the deals are no longer live.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Vitamix and Blendtec Deals — 27 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.

      The 7500 (reconditioned or new) has never been put on sale, so I wouldn’t hold out for that happening.
