  1. This is likely the last week of the reconditioned Vitamix 5200 and 6300 sale. I’ve heard the sale expires at the end of June. If you know anyone who wants a Vitamix, this is the best deal I’ve ever seen.  [7/1/14: additional discount expired; however, reconditioned machines are still a good deal.] (Details on the high quality of reconditioned Vitamix blenders)
  2. The $50 QVC dry container deal is back again. [7/1/14: expired]
  3. California cherry season is ending, but yesterday I managed to find an amazing bargain by going to a farmers market near closing time. I bought a bunch to pit and freeze, and I look forward to many cherry almond vanilla smoothies. If you missed California cherries, Northwest cherries will be available for the next two months.
  4. You may have noticed that I added a list of links to recipes by ingredient towards the bottom of the blog’s right sidebar. I hope it makes recipe browsing easier and more fun.

  1. Any idea when another sale might be, or how often, or how many times a year they have a sale on Reconditioned stuff? Seems I missed out on the June sale.

    Hoping I can get a Reconditioned Standard with a 48oz container, and perhaps for $299 instead of $329. I make really thick all frozen (including the container) fruit shakes, and think a narrow 48oz might be best for making small ~2 cup servings.

    • I have no idea if there will be another sale. I wouldn’t be surprised if there is one sometime in the next 6 months, but we can’t count on it.

      Unfortunately the 48-oz container is not currently available on reconditioned machines. I’m not sure if it will become available. If you want a machine with the 48-oz container at the cheapest price, your best bet is to either go with the 48-oz Creations model, or to buy a reconditioned standard plus a 48-oz container, and then sell the tall 64-oz container on eBay or Craigslist.
