Why Refurbished Vitamix isn’t the Same as a Used Vitamix
I am committed to helping my tribe determine which blender model is BEST for your lifestyle and your budget. So if you choose a Vitamix model with features that work best for you and your family, we want you to find the most inexpensive way to get it.
Blender Babes recommends refurbished Vitamix blenders, since their price ranges are a much more affordable way to own one of these powerful blenders – being even less expensive than buying a used Vitamix on craigslist or ebay or even the cheapest deals at warehouse locations – such as Costco and Sam’s Club – which only offer one or two models.
Many “used” Vitamix are not actually used at all. If they’re returns without use they can no longer be sold as “new”, even if the box wasn’t even opened! Or they were used briefly at demonstrations all across the country.
These blenders are Certified Reconditioned by Vitamix and sold directly from Vitamix.
Owning a certified reconditioned Vitamix is similar to buying a certified pre-owned luxury car – meaning significant savings over the cost of a brand new Vitamix blender.
If a returned Vitamix has any worn or broken parts it will be replaced with new parts, therefore the blender that you will receive is virtually brand new. Once a machine has been reconditioned, it goes through two additional quality control inspections before being packed and shipped.
Reconditioned Vitamix blenders come with
- NEW JAR
- NEW LID & TAMPER
- NEW COOKBOOKS
Just like a luxury pre-owned vehicle, returned Vitamix blenders all go through a number of quality inspections in the reconditioning process – they are required to pass a 17-point checklist at the Vitamix factory in Cleveland, Ohio USA.
It must perform like a new Vitamix machine to pass.
Refurbished Vitamix blenders not only look and perform in like new condition, but they also come with a 5 year warranty. You can also purchase an additional warranty for a total of 8 years, for an extra $75.This warranty covers wear and tear. You cannot beat that.
NO RISK GUARANTEE
Even on their reconditioned models, Vitamix offers a risk-free 30 day in-home trial so you can try one out for yourself. If you’re not satisfied, for any reason just return it for a full reimbursement.
They even pay for shipping both ways. No other blender company that I’m aware of does that.
**PLEASE NOTE: There are several Certified Reconditioned Vitamix blenders available for sale in the United States at this time. There are also a few Certified Reconditioned Vitamix blenders available to CANADA and the UNITED KINGDOM. However these blenders are not available outside of the USA/CANADA/UK.

The Refurbished Vitamix Package Options
Vitamix has so many models, they now have SEVERAL Refurbished Vitamix options ranging from $259 and up to $519 for their current top of the line Vitamix Professional 750 model (this is the reconditioned Vitamix that Blender Babes purchased and uses for testing and videos).
Every refurbished Vitamix comes with a 5 year Vitamix warranty AND you can also purchase an additional warranty for a total of 8 years, for an extra $75. You can pay all at once OR choose between payment plans!
Refurbished Vitamix S30 – Only $249
New Price is $399 – total savings of up to $100. The S30 was Vitamix’s first PERSONAL BLENDER in their NEW S-SERIES MODELS (the S50 and S55 are the same but also come with pre-programmed settings). Taking the whole “personal blending” experience to an entirely new level, its shape and size are designed to fit the needs of one or two people (at most!), as this small blender is much in their entire line. One peak horsepower motor, drawing seven amps/790 watts – which although the Vitamix S30 is quieter than larger Vitamix models, it is LESS POWERFUL.
The S-Series offers two container sizes—a 20-ounce Eastman Tritan BPA-free container that becomes an instant travel cup with flip-top lid and a 40-ounce container for small batches, the package also includes a tamper, and a Vitamix recipe cookbook. Vitamix is providing the S30 best practice guideline for consumers, but not to worry – a Vitamix S30 can absolutely handle tough jobs MUCH better than other Blend and Go types of blenders.
Refurbished Vitamix 5200 Standard – Only $329
New price is $449 – total savings of $120. This package includes the least expensive refurbished Vitamix model we recommend, including the recognizable and popular Vitamix blender models: the Vitamix 5200, CIA Professional Series, Creations II, Creations GC, Professional Series 200, Total Nutrition Center, or TurboBlend VS. All of these standard Vitamix models have the same 2-peak horsepower motor and manual 10 speed variable control with HIGH setting. Each comes with the tall standard 64 oz Eastman Tritan BPA-free container, matching tamper, and a Getting Started Plus recipe cookbook.
What I love most about the refurbished Vitamix 5200 (aside from it’s superior dependability) is you get the most (5) available color options for the motor base (red, white, black, platinum and brushed stainless) so you can better match your kitchen! 🙂
Refurbished Vitamix Standard Programs – Only $379
New Price is $559. I LOVE this option, because for only $50 more than the refurbished Vitamix 5200 Standard, with the Vitamix 6300/Pro 500 (aka Vitamix standard with programs) you get 3 pre-programmed automatic settings! These include – smoothies, frozen desserts and hot soups – which are the most popular types of recipes made with a Vitamix high powered blender.
These models have a 2-peak horsepower motor and updated controls, which includes a manual 9 speed/HIGH variable control dial, PULSE switch and start/stop switch.
These models come with the tall standard 64 oz Eastman Tritan BPA-free container, tamper, and the Savor recipe cookbook.
The motor base on this package is available in one of five colors (red, white, black, platinum, or brushed stainless).
Refurbished Vitamix Explorian E320 – Only $289
New Price is $499. New to the refurbished Vitamix offerings, this is the BEST bang for your buck! It’s the perfect no-frills starter Vitamix that has a lot of the same features as the next generation blenders.
This model has a 2.2-peak horsepower motor and updated body design and controls, which includes 10 variable control dial, PULSE switch and start/stop switch.
The Vitamix Explorian E320 comes with the low profile standard 64 oz Eastman Tritan BPA-free container and tamper.
Refurbished Vitamix 5300 – Only $360
The refurbished Vitamix 5300 is the newer addition to the certified reconditioned options! This blender model is when you want a C-series blender but with a low profile 64oz compact jar with a 2.2 horsepower motor and pulse feature (the same as the G-Series Next Generation models!).
This is a great savings if you want these features without the Next Generation price tags!
It’s similar to the Vitamix Next Generation blenders (which are new $529 and refurbished $429), but without the pulse feature! Will also receive the tamper, Vitamix Getting Started Plus recipe cookbook.
The motor base on this package is available in two colors, black and red.
Refurbished Vitamix Next Generation – Only $429
New Price is $559 – total savings of up to $110. Blender Babes was SO excited when Vitamix added their new Next Generation models to the refurbished Vitamix line!! Since these are some of their newest models, sometimes the refurbished options are out of stock. Models include the Vitamix 7500, Professional Series 300, and Creations Elite.
These newly designed next generation models feature a quieter yet more powerful 2.2-peak horsepower motor and the (LOVED BY BLENDER BABES!) redesigned, shorter (i.e. fits underneat most kitchen cabinets!) 64 oz Eastman Tritan BPA-free container with matching tamper. The controls are manual 10 speed variable (10 is the same as HIGH) with PULSE feature. Comes with their Simply Fresh recipe cookbook.
The newly designed Next Generation motor base is available in one of three colors (black, white, or red). Note that the Vitamix 7500 only comes in black, white, and red.
Refurbished Vitamix Professional 750 aka Next Generation Programs – Only $499
New Price is $599. The top of the line Vitamix 750 model is also now available in the reconditioned options as the Certified Reconditioned Next Generation Programs, with 5 preprogrammed automatic settings -smoothies, frozen desserts, hot soups, purees, and self cleaning!

This blender is available in three colors shown below (brushed stainless, black, or red) with the black and red options being less expensive at $519. The brushed stainless steel is $50 more at $569.
Refurbished Vitamix 780 – Only $399
New Price is $719, the most expensive Vitamix home blender offered. The top of the line Vitamix 780 is their first touchscreen model with 5 preprogrammed automatic settings (smoothies, frozen desserts, hot soups, purees, and self cleaning) and a 10 speed touchscreen slider.
This model is the touchscreen version of the Vitamix 750 (aka Next Generation Programs).
If you’re not sure between these two which is the best one for you, check out my Vitamix 780 vs 750 review.

What really sets this blender apart from the rest for me is it’s programmable timer. Can’t find that anywhere! Plus I LOVE touchscreen blenders. 🙂
The refurbished Vitamix A3500 features the quieter yet more powerful 2.2-peak horsepower motor and the redesigned, shorter (i.e. fits underneath most kitchen cabinets!) 64 oz Eastman Tritan BPA-free container with a clear lid so you can see the contents and includes a matching tamper.

I recommend any of these refurbished Vitamix options because you can save between $100 and $300 off of the brand new price.
You can even get better deals than warehouse locations such as Costco AND you get FREE SHIPPING + EXCLUSIVE FREE GIFTS from Blender Babes. (CLICK HERE to Learn More about our Free Gifts with Purchase)!
It’s definitely more affordable and helps you more easily make the BEST investment in your health, and your families’ ealth.
When you purchase one of these certified reconditioned Vitamix packages, you can be rest assured you are receiving the same quality that Vitamix is known for, in like new condition.
The shorter, 5 year warranty can even be upgraded to a full 8 years for an extra $75 if you feel safer with this, however we feel extra warranties are unnecessary – just like the extended warranty when buying a car. These machines are built to last, 15-20 years is the average life expectancy.
