For 6 monthes I kept searching for these deals everytime they would be out of stock etc REALLY FAST.
If you arent a "kitchenaid snob" you can get the kenmore elite knockoff for as low as ~~110$ after deals. it uses all the same accessories and utensils EXCEPT the ice cream maker.
both are made by whirlpool.
The Sears version comes with 2 bowls and the regular 3 utensils.
last month I paid something like (from memory) 239$ on sale @189 with special extra 50$ in points promotion starting price 189$ -10% coupon 170 +tax 182$ Sears 6% CashBack(off pretax 17x.xx)= 10$~~ 172$ bought Sears gift cards with 3% CashBack credit card@giant eagle. =~~6
$166 the gift cards had aprox value of 12$ in free gas from giant eagle.
154$ - 50$ sywr reward points for purchase--was the sale deal (they give you it for purchase)
104$= final price after all the rewards etc.
note I simplified this to make it not a book. If anyone has detailed questions on this transaction please feel free to PM me.
Oh and Sears ripped me off and only gave me 40$ in shop your way rewards.
I called their help number and they mailed me a 10$ gift card.
All of these savings methods may not be available.. but the mixer so far has been great. has built in LED light and a few other niceties(400w motor etc) over the basic kitchenaid model.
a few pics to support some of my deal attached
Edit: right now their best deal is aprox 20-$ more than I paid. something like 179-10% with an additional bonus 10% sywr points
If you get a 500 watt KA you can make small batches of pizza dough but the 500 W model is borderline too big to mix up a small batch of cake batter. The 325 W model is great for mixing batters and meringues, but can only make the tiniest batch of dough. So anyone looking to buy might want to figure out what your needs are. Kitchen Aid is way overrated. They don't make KitchenAid like they used to when Hobart made them long ago. Just know 325 W is not much power as you're probably thinking. Also know that some of the bigger models have metal gears instead of the plastic gears. If I remember right the artesian model have a lot of power but was only medium in size. It might've had metal gears too I'm not sure. I'm not saying never get a KitchenAid but if you do definitely get it on sale or you're wasting your money. With that said I'm pretty happy with my KitchenAid. I got my 500 W pro model for about 190 after lots of price matching rebates and Kohl's cash.
