Blendtec & Vitamix Black Friday 2018 Deals

It’s too soon to know exactly what will be offered for Black Friday 2018, but Vitamix and Blendtec put some models on sale each holiday shopping season.

I will update this page once I hear about this year’s sale, and you can see last year’s deals below. However, right now Vitamix is running a sale on the Reconditioned 7500 for $249.95. I don’t expect it to go lower during the Black Friday Sale, and, at this price, I don’t expect it to stay in stock very long either. So if the 7500 appeals to you, I recommend ordering ASAP.

Vitamix Black Friday DealsThe Blendtec and Vitamix holiday sales for 2017 have begun! Whether you’re shopping in the US, UK, or Canada, you can find significant savings.

Vitamix Deals

This year Vitamix is discounting machines by $50 to $220 in the US and Canada. These are savings compared to the prices during the rest of the year. Some retailers play games with heavily inflating the “suggested price” well above the normal price to make it look like they have an even bigger sale, but I tell it like it is.

If all of the different models are confusing, check out my Vitamix comparison page.

Most of the Vitamix deals are scheduled to run through January 7, 2018. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if they sell out of certain colors/models before then.

Here are my top picks:

Lowest Prices (US and Canada)

E310 for $299.95 (US only). This is the lowest price I’ve seen for a new Vitamix machine. The E310 was already at a price point $100 lower than previous comparable models. This machine is just as capable as the more expensive models. For more details, see my E310 review.

You can save even more by buying reconditioned. The Recon 5300 is an additional $100 off, bringing it down to $259.95. Certified Reconditioned Vitamix units are guaranteed to be as good as new.

The Reconditioned Pro 500 also just came back in stock at $299.95, with limited quantities available (C$399.95 in Canada). It’s the one to get if you want the classic narrow 64-oz container, and it also comes with 3 preset modes.

UPDATE: The classic Reconditioned 5200 just came back in stock, at $259.95.

Ascent Series Savings (US and Canada)

The Ascent Series is Vitamix’s latest, and has various new technology upgrades, including digital timers, container detect, and Bluetooth connection to app. Plus, it comes with a longer 10-year warranty. Note that you can still use these machines the same way as earlier Vitamix models (there’s no need to delve into the Bluetooth capability if you don’t want to.)

All Ascent models are on sale. My personal Ascent picks are the A2300, which gets you into the Ascent line at the lowest possible price, and the A3500, which has all the premium upgrades. The intermediate A2500 and A3300 are also worthy, if you happen to like their combination of features. For more details, see my Ascent Series review.

$100 off Black Stainless A3500 (US only)

This limited-edition premium finish option usually costs more than the other finishes, but right now, it is the same price as the (also reduced) other colors of the A3500. The black stainless has a darker finish than the normal brushed stainless, but it still has a premium metal construction and a slight brushed texture. For more details, see the metal finish options sections of my Ascent review. Dec 19 update: this machine went out of stock earlier, but it just became available again.

$50 off all New Legacy Machines (US and Canada)

In many cases I think Explorian, Ascent, or Reconditioned are a better buy. However, the New Legacy machines are still perfectly good. If you want a premium machine, but don’t want Ascent, the Pro 750 is for you (the Pro 750 and A3500 are the two models that come with metal base options). The 5200 and 7500 are also still great machines. And the Personal Series is surprisingly effective, in a smaller package. You can peruse my Vitamix comparison page for more discussion. And don’t hesitate to contact me or comment below if you’re confused.

UK Deals

Payment Plans

You can majorly lower your upfront cost with Vitamix’s generous payment plans.

Dry Container Deal

For C-Series and G-Series models only (not compatible with Ascent). Great price on the dry grains container for $50. Possible extra $5 off with code FIVE4U for new customers. Unfortunately there are no sales on the other containers.

Black Friday Pricing Note

One other thing to note about Vitamix Black Friday deals is that Vitamix has pricing agreements with its retailers. 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 Blendtec machines are not sold at many brick-and mortar stores.

Happy shopping!

Blendtec & Vitamix Black Friday 2018 Deals — 70 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,

    • 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.

  9. Thank you so much for researching the special pricing and different models! I ordered my first vitamix tonight! I have been dying for either a vitamix or a blendtec for about 3 years since i started drinking green smoothies and my ninja just doesn’t get it smooth. Im so excited and getting it at a special price was awesome!
