The 2019 Vitamix Mother’s Day Sale has begun! Vitamix is offering discounts of $50 to $100 on all new machines in the US and Canada. There are also some reconditioned deals. Here is my advice on the best buys.
Vitamix has a confusing array of different models, and since this sale applies to all of them, it doesn’t narrow down the options. (But at least you’ll save money!) As I describe on my full Vitamix comparison page, I recommend starting your model search by deciding if you want a machine with the latest features. The new features include a Bluetooth connection to an app, a timer display, automatic container detection, and forward compatibility with future accessory releases. If that appeals to you, look at the Ascent “Smart System” line (here’s my complete Vitamix Ascent review.)
Also note that clicking any Vitamix link on this site applies free shipping and an additional $20 off Ascent models.
A2300 (physical switches, no presets)
A2500 (physical switches, presets)
A3300 (touchpanel, premium dial, no presets)
A3500 (touchpanel, premium dial, presets)
If you want to save money, or if the new Ascent features don’t appeal to you, there are a number of classic models on sale. As far as pure blending performance and power go, these are no different from the more expensive Ascent models.
The most premium classic model is the Pro 750. If you don’t want the newfangled container detect system of the Ascent series, but otherwise want top of the line, this one is for you. If you choose the brushed stainless or copper finish, the base has a fully metal shell. This makes it more elegant, and also muffles sound a bit more. In addition to the metal shell options, the 750 comes with 5 preset modes.
The Reconditioned V1200 is $50 off. However, that only brings it down to the same price as sale price for a new A2300. If you’re interested in the 20-oz blending cup that comes with the V1200 then this is a decent deal. On the other hand, if you weren’t planning on getting the cup, then I recommend either getting the new A2300, or waiting until May 31st, when the Reconditioned A2500 and A3500 are scheduled to be $100 off.
If you’re not interested in a “smart” blender, right now there is a hidden deal on the Reconditioned Next Gen 7500. If you follow that link and then add it to your cart, there’s an extra $160 discount that shows up. This deal could expire at any time, and it might not last through Mother’s Day.
The Vitamix sale is scheduled to continue through the week following Mother’s Day, with discounts expiring on May 19th. If you click through one of my links, you’ll get a free shipping promo with no order minimum.
You can also greatly reduce your up-front cost with a Vitamix payment plan. As long as you make timely payments, there are no interest or financing fees. (In case it’s not clear, they send your machine after your first payment.)
A quick note about the savings mentioned above: these are the actual savings compared to the prices directly before and after the sale. (Many other sites exaggerate savings, but I tell it to you straight.)
If you are thinking about getting a Vitamix, don’t miss out on this sale!
If you are struggling with the myriad options, I am happy to answer questions.
