Wife sent me an email telling me about this deal, so thought I would come to Fatwallet to post and WaLa it was up - Got one ordered
Have been using a Vitamix for 2 years and they are terrific machines - it is used everyday! healthy smoothies, soup, avocado chocolate mouse, hummus, chopped/grated veggies, almond/cashew butters and milk, and just simple beverages ie. mom loves blackberries, but can't eat them as the seeds bother her. put them in the machine with some water and ice and they all get SMASHED!
For anyone interested in a high performance blender I encourage you to visit:
This is the best deal ever! $219 with a 5 yr warranty.wow!
I bought mine from Amazon a higher model (heritage) for close to $600 but it is worth every penny. Came with a 7-year warranty but you can also see videos of people owning the original vitamix for like 25 years without it braking down. If you don't have a vitamix get this it would change your life.

No, they don't last forever. Seems the internal gears were beginning to wear so the motor doesn't keep the rpms consistent. You'd think it'd "last forever" especially if you pay near retail. But I've owned other brands (not a Blendtec ) and this wins hands down for performance. If you factor cost over time, this still wins. And at the price here, it's a no brainer.
I figured something out. FW is like late night infomercial hell. I saw this Vitamamix post yesterday and I don't need a Vitamix, I've never wanted a Vitamix but when I saw this post, I almost bought one. I managed to talk myself out of it.
