Just keep an eye on black Friday

How does this compare to the previous deal?

They’re different models and it’s a gift so I’m not sure what to make of it. Anyone able to comment on differences/benefits or if the higher price is worth it? Anything that’s missing from these compared to the older deal?

What happened to all blenders? How did it become so expansive ? I have an Oyster one with 16 speed that works very well. My dad bought it somewhere in the late 80s for 50$. Are they less noisy at least ?

For those interested, the new VENNGO code is VENNGO92518, If you're ordering the A3500 it gives you 15%off + free shipping + free book. My total came to $528.23 all in.

For the A2500, it doesn't give you the 15% off, so heads up. My decision to opt for the A3500 was that the difference in price was about $80 (~$450 vs $528) and it's a gift so I figured it was a nicer machine. OP, I wasn't able to get vitachamp to apply to the A2500 (my total was always $451 regardless of code used), not sure if they changed their online order system.

Would still like to hear people's thoughts on the difference between these 2 models as well as the older models in the older thread (linked in my post above).

a2500 has bluetooth, and the old Jars will not work with the new machines. (new machine needs to read the rfid chip in the jar, before they will work)

Not familiar with this line of Vitamix, but they are definitely noisy by my standards at least. Not an issue for me as I am in a house, but could be a concern for someone in an apartment that likes to makes smoothies early in the morning.

As mentioned, bluetooth is the major difference. A silly feature for a blender IMO. When i bought my blender 3ish years ago, it seemed like the motors were all the same - the differences were mainly just design, pre-sets, and jar shapes. Based on that, I went with a lower-end model.

I made exactly the same calculation. I don't miss the pre-programmed features or the countdown clock and I certainly don't miss the bluetooth. I bought the least expensive version of the new style and have used it at least once per day for the last 1.5 years and it is amazing. I had burned out a cheaper blender, bought another that couldn't blend the frozen fruit very well and ended up plunking down the money on the Vitamix; best kitchen gadget I've ever purchased.
