I'm torn. I've been wanted to get the professional blender. Can't decide between the vitamix and blendtec. In jamba juice they have the vitamix, but seems like they using the wildside jar from blendtec. I heart vitamix tried to replicate the wildside jar because it was so good and blendtec sued them and won.
russ0519, what are you wanting to use it for? Unless you've got very specialized needs, either blender will make you very happy. More professional kitchens/chefs use Vitamix (it's all you'll see on cooking shows), more mall smoothie bars and gym juice bars use Blendtec. Both offer different pitchers for different tasks. Don't bother with electronic buttons and timers from either brand, you're just paying for flashy electronics that will go bad before the motor ever dies. Manual controls and a variable speed dial is all you need.
Thanks OP. Got myself another one. We bought one 5 years ago from Costco and have been extremely happy with it. We used it at least twice a week to make smoothies and milkshake. I've been bringing it to work to make smoothies/milkshake for my co-worker and they've all been very impress with this Vitamix. Now, i'll have one to leave it at work...woohoo.

Make sure you have it locked up!
I have researched a lot and end up with Oster Versa from costco for $199. It's 1400 Watts and 2hp motor, looks like vitamix(wondering if they are going to get sued). Costco adds 3 sports bottles and 2 baby food jars as well as costco return policy. Otherwise this is a good deal.

Thanks. I ordered another one. I called customer service get get them to credit my the Free shipping but they would not do it. No stacking coupon per CS. I told them to cancel it. I tried to order another one yesterday but could not. I don't know what happened. I went ahead and order this "After reading a good dozen of reviews and comparisons I've decided to go with this deal on Blendtec http://blendit.tv/three-day-smoking-hot-blendtec-deal/ No sales tax/shipping, longer warranty and $20 Amazon gift card. Got it last night and received a gift card within one hour."
Now i found out the Vitamix deal is not dead so i went ahead and order another one, of course w/ Free Shipping+25%off
I was able to stack the free shipping too.. I tried to use this code but it said criteria not met. Could you give the steps that you used to stack the coupons, I was unable to get any of the coupon codes to stack, they just over-ride each other. It would certainly be an even more amazing deal to get 25% off and not pay the $25 shipping. Also anyone else who said they got the coupons to stack feel free to chime is as well.
As of 7/21/14, this deal is still alive and kicking. Used code 07-0099-04 to get 25% off, then used free shipping code 06-008426. Final total price paid was $268.95, and I feel like I got a great deal. Been looking at the Vitamix for awhile now, couldn't justify spending $500-$600, but could not pass this up. Can't wait to get it, thanks everybody!
