Update: Vitamix Days has ended. We’ll send an update when the next big sale like this happens. (Keep me updated!)
The Vitamix Days Sales event is the best time of year to pick a Vitamix. And if you already have one, it’s the best time to get accessories.
This year, Vitamix Days begins September 19th at 9am EST. Here’s what you should choose from.
We’ll send an update as soon as we can announce the prices. (Keep me updated!)

Why you should trust us
Hi! I’m Lenny Gale and along with my wife, Shalva, we have been full-time Vitamix affiliate partners for the last ten years. We’re like the guys at the fair who demonstrate and sell the Vitamix. The only difference is we do it all online. Here are are 7 reasons to consider buying through us.
Vitamix Days vs Black Friday
Vitamix Days is one of a few big sales that happen annually. Black Friday Vitamix sales are not as big as this in terms of both depth and breath. Might you get something better if you wait? Of course it’s possible. But I think there’s a better chance of Black Friday prices being higher than they are for this sale, Vitamix Days. Recommendation: Do not wait. Buy now and buy early — supplies are limited.
Three steps to shopping Vitamix Days
Here are the three steps to shop Vitamix Days to ensure you get the best price and most value.
Step 1) Load your Shopping Cart at Vitamix.com
Vitamix Days is an event for buying direct from the Vitamix website. So it excludes purchases from big box, Amazon, Costco, etc.
Step 2) Click “LifeIsNoYoke sent me!”
After filling up your cart, go back to lifeisnoyoke.com and click our referral link. That’ll activate our referral to ensure you get the very best pricing and qualify you for a free copy of our ebook (once you notify us of your order).
Note: We rely on your referrals. Please don’t forget it!
Step 3) Notify us!
That way we’ll be able to make sure we got credit for your purchase, send you a copy of our ebook, and make sure you’re well taken care of.
Note: We wish it was were seamless (like simply entering a code at checkout and then automatically getting sent our ebook). But Vitamix is a 100-year old company, so this is what we have to do to ensure we get credit for your purchase.
A3500’s are the quietest (least loud), most feature-rich, have the best user experience, and have the most compatibility with attachments (8-oz, FPA). If budget were no concern, it would be the once we recommend ten times out of ten. Ours lives on our counter and we’ve used it daily or more for the last six years. The A3500 is the best blender Vitamix has ever made.
You have four choices.
Of note, if you want to go with the minimalist option, *just* the A3500, you’ll have to get Black Stainless. The other finishes are excluded from the sale.
What does Black Stainless look like and how does it compare to the rest of the finishes?
Not sure which recon A3500 color to pick? Here ya go:
- Brushed Stainless fits the best in most kitchens
- Graphite Metal is like matte black
- Black Stainless is like brushed gold or gunmetal
- Copper is great but only in ultra-chic kitchens;
- All-White is a stain-resistant plastic shell.
- Red is just red
The image below compares them well, as does this video.
Should I get the Stainless Steel container or the one with the full-size 64-ounce?
You should choose the A3500 with Stainless Steel Container (review) if you have one or two people in your home. The narrow, 48-ounce size and shape make it ideal for smaller batches of thick blends. If you have more than two people in your your home, you should get the standard A3500 which comes with the low-profile 64-ounce container. For what it’s worth, it would be too small for us as we make 64 ounces of green juice every other morning.
Is the Aer Disc container worth it?
The Aer Disc container is a fun accessory to have, though non-essential. It’s designed for making whips and foams for special drinks. We like ours for batch cocktails and special drinks like strawberry lemonade (watch!).
What’s up with Certified Reconditioned?
Vitamix sells refurbished blenders under the brand name Certified Reconditioned. They’re a great value that’s well appreciated by Vitamix insiders. They come with the same warranty as new ones (except for fewer years) — full service including free shipping both ways if something happens. Highly recommended.
So which one should I get?
The recon A3500 is such a good deal and comes around so rarely. At that price, it’s an absolute no brainer. Though, they’re not for everyone. And if you want to buy new, go with the one that best suits your lifestyle — The Minimalist, The Just Me’s (or The Just Us’s), or The Entertainer.
7500 vs 5300 vs Turbo Blend 3-speed
Choose one of these Legacy models if you want a no-frills Vitamix without anything digital.
The 7500 and 5300 are nearly identical models but for the look and feel of the motor base. The 7500 has the original “G-Series” shell while the 5300 has the classic “C-Series” shell, similar to the 5200. Go with the 7500 if you can afford the price difference; it’s an original design whereas the 5300 is more of a mashup created after the fact.
The Turbo Blend 3-speed is a good pick if you’re planning to make smoothies and shakes only. It has the full-size (tall, narrow) 64-ounce container which is ideal for these things. But note, the low-profile 64-ounce container is also makes great smoothies and shakes; the flow of ingredients is just a bit more chaotic.

Should you get the FPA?
The Food Processor Attachment (review) is great for the two things a standard Vitamix cannot do: shredding and slicing. Whether you should get it in addition to your new Vitamix depends on how you plan to use it. Do you currently use a food processor today? If yes and you want to combine your blender and food processor into one system, the Food Processor Attachment is great. But if not, you’re going to be most successful taking a minimalist approach to your new Vitamix. You can always get the FPA down the road.
