Vitamix Black Friday 2020 Deals

Vitamix Black Friday DealsVitamix’s 2020 Holiday Shopping season has begun! There some deals that last for 6 weeks (if they stay in stock), and a few special deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you’re thinking about buying a Vitamix, this is the best time of year to do it!

I want to help you plan out which one to get, so that when the deal goes live, you can snatch it up right away (some of these deals almost certainly will sell out). If you change your mind, you can get a full refund (including free return shipping) within the first 30 days.

If you want to weigh all of the info, here’s the calendar (my thoughts on the different machines follow). Keep in mind that this schedule is not 100% set in stone, so there may be changes. $ is US dollars and C$ is Canadian dollars:


The sales usually start and stop around midnight Eastern Time. If you want to get a jump on one of the sales, start checking right after midnight Eastern. Based on past Vitamix sales, if it hasn’t gone live by 12:15 am EST, you’ll probably have to wait until sometime between 5 and 9:15 am EST. The one exception this year is that the Black Friday deals are scheduled to start at 6pm EST on Thursday.  It’s likely that some of these will sell out, so getting in as early as possible is worth it!

Nov 20–Dec 31 [Live Now!]

Nov 26 @6pm EST–Nov 30 [expired]

Dec 2–Dec 13

Dec 26-Dec 27, Canada only (Boxing Day)

UK Only: Nov 27th only

Choosing which one to get

Nearly every Vitamix option will be on sale at some point, with plenty of great deals on different models. For background, you can check out my Which Vitamix page.


The primary question is whether you want an Ascent machine or a Classic one. To help decide, see my Ascent Review page. In my opinion, the top reason to go with Ascent is if you want to be able to use the Ascent-only accessories, most notably the Food Processor Attachment.


The next question is if you want to go with reconditioned or new. Reconditioned Vitamix machines offer the biggest savings, and I highly recommend them. (For more details, see my Reconditioned Vitamix page).

There are only two situations where I don’t recommend reconditioned. One is if you are buying a gift for someone who will not appreciate the value proposition. (Reconditioned machines are indistinguishable from new once they are on your counter, but their packaging materials are clearly marked as reconditioned.)

The other situation is if you don’t want to buy a second container, and the 48-oz container is ideal for you. It only comes with the new E310. The E310 is already relatively modestly priced, so the $60 off makes it a great deal, and this is the ideal machine for some people. Its narrow container handles small amounts better than the wide 64-oz containers.

Other choices

Then you’ll have to decide if you want presets, or a premium metal base (metal only available on A3500 and A3300).

Recommended Picks

Of all these deals on machines, the two that stand out for me are the E310 and the A3300 Brushed Stainless. The E310 is a no-frills machine, and its container is great for blending smaller amounts, while also going up to a 48-oz capacity. The A3300 is a premium machine that gets you into the Ascent line, at a sweet price (if you order on Cyber Weekend!). The metal base looks great and muffles sound a bit, making it quieter than the non-metal Vitamix machines.

I don’t find presets very useful, so my two top picks don’t have them. Some people love presets though, so, if you want them check out the Pro 750 or the A3500.

And if you like the idea of the blend-and-go cup, plus the lowest price for a Smart Blender, the V1200 is an awesome package deal. (Given that the mini-blade base plus 20-oz container sell for $99, it’s pretty crazy that you can get the whole package for $259.)

If you get a machine with a wide container, I recommend considering getting a second smaller container, which you can get at a 20% discount starting Dec 2. For Ascent machines, the one to get is the Self-Detect 48-oz. If you get a non-Ascent machine, I recommend the 32-oz. (The 48-oz works just as well for small amounts; it’s just a bit bulkier.)

Payment Plans

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

Free Shipping

As usual, free shipping will be applied in your cart if you click any of the Vitamix 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 its retailers. Probably for this reason, I have never seen a Vitamix doorbuster advertised at a brick-and-mortar store.

Happy shopping!

Vitamix Black Friday 2020 Deals — 95 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?

    • 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.
