Vitamix 5200S Blender Local Costco for $374.99 (Come w/64oz Jar)

All,

Before you complaint that this is a repost from Chino3 here: http://slickdeals.net/f/3583552-V...tco-374-99?v=1 this is a different model.

This is the 5200S that comes with a bigger 64oz jar for the same price. I saw the price and took some picture and thought the price seem cheaper than when they were like $450 to $500!
Vita-Mix Model Link: https://secure.vitamix.com/5200-G...arted.aspx

I spot this in my local Costco out at Lancaster, CA.

Here is the description from the Costco price tag:
Costco # 675486
Vita-Mix High Powered Blender•Shatterproof 64 oz Jar
•Variable Speed Control
•Includes Tamper, Getting started DVD & Cookbook
•2 HP Peak Motor
•7 Year Warranty
•All Metal Drive System
•Easy to Clean

Man... so temped to get this Vitamix 5200S or the Blendtec Designer Series WildSide. I love how the Designer Series use touch sensitive display panel instead of that microwave bubble buttons that gets wear out and start cracking.

Which brand and model do you guys likes?

Have a blendtec and a vitamix. Gotta say I like the wildside blendtec more. That wildside container is awesome. No, well rarely, is mixing required.

2 Jar blendtec for $370 from costco was a better option.

Just bought one of these from Costco. They're at least $100 more everywhere else.

If you want a powerful blender you'll most likely be happy with whatever you buy, but if you want to consider all the details I recently posted a run-down of the key differences between Vitamix and Blendtec machines:

Bought this blender last Saturday even when dear wife was not very pleased with the amount of money being spent. Convinced her, brought the blender home, opened the box and put it on the kitchen slab with great pride.
Opened the book, flip to page 109, Put some all purpose flour, poured some water, turned it on, startled the baby and SMOKED THE MOTOR.
End of the story, taking it back on the next trip.

Moral: Wife is so pleased with 'I told you so' expression on her face. I am again on prowl for a Blender better than equals!

Do they require a costco membership to buy these at costco? They're independent reps, right?

Amazon lightning deal was cheaper @ 359 for the CIA 1702 (basically the same model). No tax there too.

I just called two Costcos near me and both have the Vitamix 5200S blender for $375. However, Costco.com has the Vitamix 5200 Super Package for $500 ( http://www.costco.com/Vitamix-520...09068.html

Should've swapped for another one. You won't find a better blender. Don't know why the first thing you'd do is try taxing the motor, anyway. I'd never rev my car to 6K RPM right off the lot. But what do I know...
