If you waited til November to finally get your Vitamix, you’re about to be rewarded. There are some incredible deals around.
But before we get to the deals, a word of warning: You don’t just want the “best deal” on a Vitamix blender.
You want the right Vitamix, for the best possible price.
Some of the more heavily discounted machines this Cyber Monday aren’t necessarily the best value for most people, and you’ll see examples of that below.
This will make more sense as we go through the list, so let’s just jump in.
Deal #1: Best Value: Vitamix Ascent A2300
The Ascent A2500 is already our best-rated Vitamix of 2020. If you’re trying to maximize your “feature per dollar” I think it’s the way to go. (More on why in our best Vitamixes comparison article).
But that’s not why I’m listing it first here. It’s appearing on this list because it’s currently showing the highest percentage discount of any model in the Ascent range.
The Ascent A2300 gives you the low profile 64oz container, which is the best you can get. It comes with nearly all the best features from the Ascent range (clear lids, dishwasher safe containers, digital timers, and self detect container swapping) just without pre-set programs.
It has the longest available warranty too, at 10 years.
If you want to make a “can’t go wrong” decision, just grab the Ascent A2300 and be done with it.
It’s got a low profile container to fit snugly under countertops. It’s got the latest bits of technology for reducing noise. It’s got the new wifi capability and as much horsepower as you could need.
Deal #2: Cheapest: Vitamix Explorian E320 Renewed
This has only just become available and it’s the cheapest I’ve ever seen a Vitamix with a 64oz container.
Yes, it’s “renewed”, but unless you’re using this in a restaurant kitchen, that’s not something to worry about. Vitamix restores these models to “as new” condition, fully servicing the motor, cleaning, and conditioning it. You won’t notice the difference between this and a new model.
You don’t get presets here, and the Explorian series is a few decibels noisier than the Ascent range and the Professional models. But when you’re saving that much money, my hope is you won’t notice, or care.
There’s nothing you could want to do with a Vitamix that you can’t do with the Explorian renewed. Soups, purees, nut butters, cheeses, smoothies will all be done to whatever consistency you desire. It has the shorter wider container to fit under a countertop more easily, and near-perfect reviews.
Deal #3: Cheapest Ascent: Vitamix A2500 Renewed
Above I said the Ascent A2300 had the biggest discount of any model in the Ascent range… but I wasn’t including renewed models. There’s a renewed A2500 for a cheaper price than any other Ascent, and a higher percentage discount.
Everything I said above about the Ascent A2300 is true for the renewed A2500 too: Clear lids, 64oz low profile container, dishwasher safe, 10-year warranty…
AND it has preset programs. Not the full 5 preset programs you get with the A3500, but 3 of them: smoothies, hot soups and frozen desserts. If you plan to make a lot of those things, you should really consider this deal. It’s both cheaper than the current A2300 deal and the machine has more features.
Deal #4: Best Vitamix to be Discounted: Vitamix Ascent A3500
The Ascent A3500 is Vitamix most feature-stacked machine. Making it stand out above the other Ascent blenders are it’s 5 preset programs, giving you automated consistency with hot soups, frozen desserts, smoothies, dips & spreads, as well as self cleaning.
But another underappreciated feature of the Ascent is the little “count up and down” buttons: The + and – buttons you see on the display.
Lower models in the Ascent range only have a “count up” timer. It shows you how much time the blender’s been going for so you can remember when you want to recreate the same texture again in the future.
But the A3500 has the timer (only shared by the A3300) that shows you how much time is left. This is so helpful when you’re buzzing around the kitchen going back and forward from the stove to the blender to the cutting board. You glance over, you know you’ve got 2 minutes left on the blend, and you can plan accordingly.
Anyway, the Ascent A3500 is an incredible machine and it is discounted at the moment. If you want the best of the best, you can still feel happy you’re getting a deal.
There Are Deals On Other Machines, BUT…
Look, I could keep showing you other models that are also discounted at the moment.
For example, Vitamix 5200 is on sale for what looks like a big discount but being such an old model, I don’t recommend you getting it instead of the similarly priced and much more feature heavy Ascent A2300.
From there, most of the other models you might consider aren’t on sale, which is helpful.
Keep your decision simple this holidays, and just pick from one of the 4 above, would you? 🙂
One More Idea Before We Finish
I know this is controversial, but I can’t help but mention it.
Vitamix’s big competitor Blendtec is also doing some huge discounts this holidays.
These blenders are very hard to distinguish, and passionate debates rage as to which is better. For most people, their functionality, output, and results will be about the same.
Only thing is, Blendtec models are cheaper, feature for feature at the moment.
There’s even a “Deal of the Day” on one right now, that makes it the cheapest thing on this page. Just sayin’.
If you’re not sure which to pick, feel free to ask me in the comments below.
I’ll try to keep this page updated as the holiday sales roll on. Good luck with your decision and happy blending!
