Vitamix Black Friday 2021

Vitamix Black Friday DealsVitamix’s 2021 Holiday Shopping season has begun! The sale extends beyond Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and is scheduled to go from now through the end of the year. (If machines stay in stock!) There also are some scheduled deals for Black Friday, mainly on accessories. If you’re thinking about buying a Vitamix, this is the best time of year to do it!

Between supply chain challenges and shipping delays, it’s probably best to try to get holiday shopping done early this year.

Here’s the overview of Vitamix’s sale:

Nov 19–Dec 31 [Live Now!]

  • $30 to $100 off almost all new machines. ($100 off metal A3300, $75 off A3500, $60 off the 48-oz E310, and $50 off most everything else.)
  • There’s a hidden deal on the Recon V1200: add it to your cart after following that link to activate an extra $100 off.

Nov 25 6pm EST–Dec 30th 3am EST Black Friday/Cyber Monday [Live Now!]

Choosing which one to get

Since almost all machines are on sale, there isn’t a single deal that jumps out as best. Check out my Which Vitamix to buy page for help deciding.

Ascent?

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.

Reconditioned?

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.

This year availability is extremely limited, and many of the reconditioned models have been out of stock for many months. (I have long suspected that Vitamix sometimes sells brand new units as reconditioned as a way of having another price point, but this year’s supply chain disruptions mean they can barely keep the new units in stock.)

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, I think most people should choose from the following options.

“Entry level” but still full power and quality: E310

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.

“Entry level” smart machine compatible with all current accessories: Recon V1200

Accessories that are only available for smart models are the 8-oz mini-cup and the food processor attachment. Non-smart models can blend in the 20-oz to-go cup, but they require the bulky Personal Cup Adapter.

Premium metal base smart blender: A3300 or A3500

The metal base looks great and muffles sound a bit, making it quieter than the non-metal Vitamix machines, and these are compatible with all accessories. The only difference between these two is the presets that the A3500 has. I don’t find them very useful, but some people love them. The metal option on the A3300 usually costs extra, but during this sale it’s the same price, so I think most people will want it.

Payment Plans

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

Free Shipping

As usual, free shipping on orders over $50 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 2021 — 95 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,
    Romy

    • 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!

    • I do not know for sure. It’s possible that it will be sometime between 12:01 and 12:15 am EST. If it doesn’t go live then, then it will probably be sometime between 5am and 9:15am EST.

    • That Recon model is not available outside the US, so if you are in Canada, it will show as unavailable. If you have access to a US address, you can order it from the US site.

    • I am not a dealer. I’m linking Vitamix.com, and they ship directly from their factory. The Recon Pro 750 comes with a 5-year warranty, and you can use PayPal if you want. (It will show up as an option at checkout.)

    • Blending performance is the same, but the A2500 has more features. I personally don’t use most of the extra features, though I do like seeing the timer. Honestly, I could go either way.

  10. I have read your extensive review of the Ascent. The motor seems identical between the two models, but the refurb 750 is going to be at $280 or so while the A3300 is only coming down to $350. What are the main reasons you suggest the A3300 over the 750?

    • Yes, the motor is identical (or might as well be — there’s no noticeable difference).

      Main advantages of the (new) A3300 over the (Recon) 750:
      Compatibility with current and future Ascent-only accessories
      10-year warranty instead of 5-year

      One thing I’m not sure of is if the $279.95 price will include the metal finish options of the 750. We’ll find out for sure once the sale starts. The A3300 deal definitely comes with a metal base. (The metal base is more elegant and a bit quieter.)

      Minor advantages of A3300 over 750:
      More elegant design
      Timer display is sometimes nice
      Ascent lid seals more securely
      Dishwasher-safe container (I don’t use dishwasher for Vitamix container)
      Ability to receive blending programs from the blending app (I don’t use it)

      To be balanced, here are the advantages of the 750 over the A3300
      Program modes on the control dial (I don’t use them)
      Compatibility with older containers

      Honestly, both are great deals. If you are more price-sensitive, you can’t go wrong with the Recon 750.

      • Hi. Just want to be sure as I’m one of, “those,” husbands (a relative to complete bumbling failure at figuring out what my wife means by ‘A Vitamix,’ getting stereotypically kitchen-related deals, or even finding items my beloved wife wants that I can afford):

        THE A3300 WILL BE ON SALE THIS CYBER MONDAY (tomorrow, Dec. 2nd) ON AMAZON.COM AT THE LATEST BY midnight PST, AND PROBABLY TO ALMOST GUARANTEED AT midnight EST for $350, yes? T-T???

        Please get back to me in time as I’m now stuck staring at this website until midnight PST. She has let me know she wants, “a Vitamix,” since literally the 2nd month of our 5-year marriage. If you can’t, that’s just fine. The simple fact that you blatantly put the line, “If you want me just to tell you what to get,” makes you an ABSOLUTE hero to me, and I can say that. I’m a veteran, so I’m giving you my ‘hero’ (-_-) status. Thank you for your taxes.
