This Vitamix Deal Matches the Black Friday Sale – for 24 Hours
If you don’t already have a Vitamix, chances are it’s been on your wish list for a long, long time. And what’s not to love (or lust) about ’em? As the gold standard of blenders, they’re perfect for whipping up nut butters, salsas, and frozen margaritas.
But while Vitamix is arguably one of the best — if not, the best — blender brands on the market, it’s not the cheapest. Most models will set you back a couple hundred dollars, so it’s a good idea to wait until they go on sale. There was a flash deal for just 24 hours over Black Friday, but if you missed it, the same model is back at its Black Friday price for another 24 hours.
Right now, Amazon is shaving $100 off Vitamix’s Explorian Blender. (That is a full $30 less than the last time it was on sale in early December.) This option features 10 speed variations, stainless steel blades, and a pulse setting, which is perfect for chopping nuts or vegetables.
At $190, this blender is by no means cheap; however, Vitamix designs all of its blenders to last for many years to come. Plus, if you’re constantly trying new recipes — or shelling out $12 for a green smoothie — it’ll pay for itself in no time.
One caveat: This deal only applies to certified refurbished blenders. We know what you’re thinking: What the heck does “certified refurbished” mean? It means the product has either been slightly or never used and returned by a customer. Don’t worry, though! Amazon tests each product to make sure it still lives up to its promise. From there, Amazon gives approved products the thumbs-up and sells them for a lower price.
Amazon promises these refurbished blenders will look and work like new. And in the off-chance yours doesn’t, all certified refurbished products are backed by a minimum 90-day warranty.
We know the stigma “used” has for many shoppers — especially when it comes to kitchenwares — but think of all the money you’re saving! To put things in perspective, a brand-new Explorian Blender on Amazon currently costs $300. The sale runs until midnight P.T., when it will go back to its list price of $290.
