Currently my Shopko has these on clearence from $399.99 to $99.99 and if you use the coupon listed below it takes of another $20.00 bringing it down to $79.99.
I have not had a chance to try these out yet but with Shopko's 90 day return period it should give ample time to make sure it works as promoted. This is suppose to compete with the Vitamix.
Get you coupon here from bluking's post:
COUPON VALID MARCH 10 & 11, 2013 AT SHOPKO, SHOPKO HOMETOWN & SHOPKO.COM
