The Truth Regarding Any Vitamix Promotion Code or Coupon: April 2019

(updated April 1, 2019)  

Thank you for visiting blender dude. As the original site on the web dedicated specifically to helping you select the perfect high-performance blender for you and your family, I hope you’ll find it has done just that.  If you ultimately determine that blender to be a Vitamix, the following company promotion code and coupon information may be of interest.  As of April 2019 it is the most current discount information available to you.

In late 2017 Vitamix completely restructured their discount and promotion code programs.  Today, codes on websites advertising discounts on Vitamix blenders are no longer valid.  It’s also important to note that Vitamix does not issue coupons – ever.  Therefore any site or seller claiming to offer Vitamix coupons is either misinformed or, worse, is misrepresenting itself to you.

Other than a sale run exclusively by Vitamix, the maximum online deduction one can receive from is in the form of a Free Shipping discount.  The simplest way to receive this discount is to prepopulate your Vitamix shopping cart.  Even if you’re not yet ready to purchase or are still researching the right Vitamix model for you, prepopulating the cart ensures a maximum discount will be applied once you’re ready to complete the checkout process at  To prepopulate your Vitamix cart, simply click this image:

Likewise, using any “BUY NOW button found on the Vitamix model pages from the BLENDERS section of this site will also trigger your discount.  These buttons redirect to the checkout page at where you will finalize your warranty duration and blender color selection. The next step is to click “Add to Cart.”  Your discount code will be automatically entered for you and will look like this:


Notice that code 06-BLEND is already populated next to “Free Standard Shipping.” You’re good to go!  Your free shipping discount will automatically be applied and the Promotion Code box will then look just like the first image above.  Click “Proceed to Checkout” or one of the other payment options to complete your order.

If 06-BLEND does not appear next to “Free Standard Shipping” at checkout and you would like to credit this site for its assistance, you will want to clear your browser cache and cookies, then either prepopulate your shopping cart by clicking Vitamix mage above, or add your chosen blender to the Vitamix shopping cart using the corresponding “BUY NOW button found on the corresponding page of your chosen Vitamix model from this site.
