Vitamix currently has Certified Reconditioned models in stock in the “Special Deals” section of their web site. These reconditioned units are returns or lightly used demo models from photo shoots, editorial reviews, etc. Each unit is factory reconditioned and must meet the same performance & functionality requirements and pass the same inspections as the new units at the Vitamix manufacturing facility in North Olmsted, Ohio.
They aren’t always available, but if you can get one it’s a great deal. A Certified Reconditioned Vitamix 5200 is $120 less than a new Vitamix. Add $25 free shipping (with promotion code) and save up $145.

Why pay more for the same thing?
On these Certified Factory Reconditioned models, the base is the only part that is reconditioned. All other components are brand new. You get a new blender bin, lid, and tamper with every Reconditioned Vitamix blender.
If your Vitamix breaks within 5 years of purchase, Vitamix will repair or replace the machine (for free, of course); or give you a full refund. They’ll also cover shipping costs if you have to send it in.
If you ever want to get a new Vitamix and your existing Vitamix is older than the 7 year warranty, Vitamix will (at the time of this writing) give you $100 U.S. /$150 Canada on the purchase of both new and reconditioned Vitamix models.
30 Day In Home Trial
Vitamix is so confident in their product that they offer a 30-day no risk in home trial. If you have any reason at all for not being satisfied with your Vitamix, you can simply return it for a full refund. They will even pay for shipping!
