The Best October Prime Day Vitamix Sales

If you’ve read this, this, or this, you’d know we’re generally big fans of Vitamix products. They perform well, they’re easy to use, they last—and there are a whole lot of specifics in between all of that. 

The one thing that’s not so great about Vitamix: their products (be it a blender or countertop composter) are expensive. And they aren’t often discounted. Which is why when Vitamixes do go on sale, it’s worth paying attention/investing/considering whether it’s finally time to buy that Vitamix 5200 you’ve wanted ever since Kenji reviewed it.

The time might be now thanks to Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale (we’re calling it Prime Day 2.0). The October 11-12 event includes markdowns on several of the brand’s products. We’re also seeing some other retailers like Williams Sonoma matching Amazon’s discounts. Here are the best Vitamix deals happening right now.

Vitamix 5200 Professional-Grade Blender

Normally $550, Now $480

Our longtime recommend (seriously, Kenji first tested it back in 2014) high-end blender is $70 off at the moment. And unless it’s Prime Day, it’s not typically discounted. What’s so great about it? For starters, its tapered blending jar creates a vortex that pulls ingredients into its blades—creating super-smooth sauces, smoothies, soups, and plenty of other things that don’t start with the letter “s.” Its control panel couldn’t be simpler, too, with just two switches and a dial. It’s all power, no fuss.

Vitamix A2500 Ascent Series Smart Blender

Normally $550, Now $500

If the 5200 isn’t quite fancy/extra/feature-y enough, then the A2500 model may be worth considering. It has wireless connectivity, an LED control panel with a built-in timer, and a motor base that automatically recognizes container size (i.e. if you were blending a single-serving smoothie in a smaller canister versus its full-size, 64-ounce container). It also comes with a 10-year warranty, and all of its finishes are currently discounted. And if you’re curious about the Vitamix food processor, it’s compatible with the Ascent Series. Note: Williams Sonoma and Bloomingdale’s are also offering this same discount on the A2500.

Vitamix A3500 Ascent Series Smart Blender

Normally $650, Now $600

This is very similar to the A2500, but has a more advanced control panel, with touchscreen preset buttons above its control knob and below its digital screen. It also has a 64-ounce blending canister and comes with a 10-year warranty. Check out Williams Sonoma, Bloomingdale’s, and Best Buy for similar markdowns on this product.

Vitamix 750 Professional Grade Blender

Normally $630, Now $559

If you’re not quite feeling a smart blender, but want something a notch above minimalistic, the 750 is a good option. It has manual, analog controls (read: not digital), a pulse setting, and five presets for smoothies, hot soups, self-cleaning, and more. Note: Only the grey color is currently discounted.

Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender

Normally $350, Now $300

We called this blender “small and tidy” and that’s apt: if you want a Vitamix that’s more compact, this is a good option. Its control panel is like the 5200, with a knob that lets you toggle between 10 speed settings. We think this is a good choice for a smaller, starter blender—especially if you’re looking to use it for mostly smoothies. And for more buying options, it’s also marked down on Williams Sonoma, Bloomingdale’s, and Best Buy.

Vitamix FoodCycler

Normally $400, Now $350

Looking to compost but lacking the outdoor space or not wanting to deal with a giant bin of scraps? The FoodCycler is a countertop composter that, we think, works very well. We’ve written about it in-depth before and besides some interesting things that it can’t handle and a large countertop footprint, it does its job as advertised: turning food scraps into compost in six to eight hours with the press of a button.


What’s the best Vitamix blender?

Our favorite blender is the Vitamix 5200 Professional-Grade Blender. You can read more about its pros and cons here.

Do Vitamix blenders ever go on sale?

They do go on sale, just not super often. Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale and Prime Day are good times to look for sales on Vitamix products.
