But, it’s definitely an investment. When I wrote the original post, I mentioned that I used a 20% off coupon at Bed Bath & Beyond.
Here are some additional ways you can pay less than retail for your Vitamix:
Bed Bath & Beyond – I mentioned this earlier, but you can use the 20% off coupons for the Vitami x. The bummer is that they don’t have the lowest price model, so it is still $400. But, you can think of it as a free upgrade!
Costco – We don’t have a membership, but I think they start around $379.
Craigslist/Ebay – Of course, you can always look for a used one. I did a quick search on Craiglist and found several new or nearly new for around $300. Since it’s not a significant savings, I would probably just spend $19 more and get one reconditioned from Vitamix.
Also, they do go on sale occasionally. Right now, there are a couple of models on sale at Williams Sonoma . If you don’t mind being patient, you can definitely get a good deal.
Any other tips for saving money on a Vitamix? Do you have one? Was it worth the price?
