No one could tell you which one to buy. It would be like asking what should I buy, a Ferrari or a Lamborghini. These are the two best blenders in the world.
That being said, I would consider a few things:
1) The vitamix is higher priced
2) The vitamix doesn't come with a smaller "twister" jar
3) The vitamix only comes with a 5 year warranty
4) The blendtec has the Costco advantage... e.g... no issues ever returning it for a full refund.
All that being said, Vitamix has a bigger brand name than Blendtec. If you want to impress your friends, telling them you have a "Vitamix" will probably do it more so than a "Blendtec".
For 300$ there's no doubt you should go for the blendtec. Return your vitamix when you get it, or refuse the delivery.
If you went for the Vitamix because it's more powerful, just know that I have a blendtec 625 and I find it powerful enough even at half of the full speed. I never go past half.. this thing is a beast.
