I can't speak for the deal itself, but I have read/heard that Blendtec is not as good as Vitamix. Cheaper Explorian Vitamix models go on sale often at Costco.

I've mentioned this in previous threads, but my side-by-side comparison of a Vitamix and Blendtec about 5 years ago was that the Vitamix looks and feels like it is built better, but I found that Blendtec made better smoothies which is the vast majority of my blending. Their warranty is one year longer than Vitamix too.

This is a pretty good deal if you will use the twister jar, but might be a tough re-sell. My Blendtec came with the twister jar which I put up for sale as soon as I got it. It took a long time to finally find a buyer.

My mom buys Vitamix and my sister and I both buy Blendtec. There are pros and cons for both, but if your primary blend is thick creamy drinks or smoothies where you're pureeing fruit, we've found the Blendtec with the wildside cannisters to do better at pulverizing ice, seeds and fibers, and the twister jar to be excellent for soft ice cream. I bought two extra twister jars, one for me and one for my sister.

For anything where you need the tamper, the Vitamix does better of course - ignoring that you can buy tampers for the Blendtec.

The Vitamix does feel sturdier and maybe it'll last longer, but so far none of our blenders have had issues

Have both a blendtec and vitamix (wife had that one before we moved in together). Personally for our main use of smoothies the Blendtec gives better results and is still going strong after 3000+ cycles.

The only thing I've found so far that Blendtec struggles with is dates. I'm guessing that Vitamix would do better because their blades are sharp. The tamper is definitely a nice feature, but a spoon does the same job as long as you keep it away from the blades.

Vitamix blades are actually designed to be dull to pulverize (rather than cut).

They aren't sharp like knife edges, but compared to Blendtec blades, Vitamix blades are sharp (unless they have changed in recent years).
