They're having their Mother's Day sale. Expires: 5/8/2016
Includes 5 years warranty. On all colors except for the Brushed Stainless ($399)

https://www.vitamix.com/Shop/Cert...uId=001888

Googling, I found this code that gives free shipping and flip top beverage bottle: 06-007021 or 06-007938

It's not the BEST deals that can be had (the Friends and Family extra 25% off for $285 around Nov time frame is probably the best, but this is good if you need it sooner).

Other stuff on sale: https://www.vitamix.com/browse/pr...others-Day

This is more powerful than the 5200. People on the fence to buy a vitamix, get it without a blink. Its worth the money.

So this model's high level is stronger than the 5200 set on high? Sorry for the dumb question. Just not sure if the 6300's high level is just equivalent to 5200's level 10 since it looks to only go from 1-9 speed then high.

Not true, they have the same exact motor. The only difference is that the 6300 has 3 pre set settings (soups, smoothies, frozen desserts) and a dedicated pulse button. I did extensive research before I bought the 6300 as the 5200 was the other machine I was considering.

I got in on the November Vitamix 6300 deal for $224. One of the best investments I have ever made. $299 is still a great price for this model.

Wish I jumped on that deal! Do you have any issues using the pre set settings on certain ingredients? Or is it better off to just use the 1-9/high settings?

Not a dumb question. I was curious about this myself when I was buying. On the 6300/5200 levels it's like this: 1-9 on the 6300 is the same as 1-10 on the 5200. "High" on the 6300 is the same as "High" on the 5200. So the 5200 has just slightly more variation in speed but they both start off at the same low setting and can get to the same high setting.

In regards to your other question, the pre set settings are nice but not a deal breaker in my opinion. I have found that I use the soup setting the most. Other than that I do most blends manually.

Vitamix re-brands the same machine with different model names for different markets. You are buying the 6300 or Pro500. They are the same exact machine with the same features. The 6300 was sold mostly in the USA while I think the Pro500 was sold in Canada.

Because you are buying reconditioned there is no way to be sure of which model you will get. If history is any indication then chances are it will be a 6300. Last November this was an extremely popular deal and I only remember reading that people got the 6300.

Either way it is the same exact machine, they do an excellent job with refurbs. The container is brand new and if there are any cosmetic defects they will be replaced with new.

Why would you use that code? If you use the code I posted in the OP, you can get an extra flip top bottle for free.
