Is this better deal than the A3500 JossAndMain offering for $429?
is the preprogrammed buttons worth the $80? because if not, the 3300 and 3500 are the same

I have to disagree here. Have you watched video reviews of this 3300 and the 2500/3500? The programmed timer that replaces the pre-programmed settings is fine, but the major difference is it goes back to 0 every time you turn off the blender. Each time you want to blend something you need to hold down the "+" button on the display until it hits the time you want...each time. On the 2500 you can keep the dial on the pre-set cycle you use most (for us it's smoothies) and each time you turn it on it's right there, no adjustment needed. Fundamental difference, and a big one I'd pay $50 more to have in the 2500.
Totally fine to disagree. I understand your preference if you are mainly blending the same thing all the time.

I am particular about texture and use my blender for a lot more than for just smoothies (and many different kinds & volumes of smoothies). I find the pre-sets just don't cut it and they either overblend or I need to blend some more afterwards. Sounds like the 2500/3500 is better for you and that's awesome!

You really dont lose the preset buttons, just use the app on your phone to do presets.

yep im the same. i used blenders that have presets/programs but its never to my liking. i still like to do the intervention of time myself or pulse until i have it where i like.

$80-100 more for the 3500 is NOT worth it just for preprogrammed timed functions. Its hard to justify that. I'm speaking of $80-100 diff from the recent deals for the 3500.

Thanks, more reason to confirm that the $80-100 diff for the a3500 is to add bottons on the blender isnt worth it

Pre-programmed rarely works for me. I'm usually more diverse in my use and precise in my desired outcome and programs don't work well for me.
If I did have a specifically consistent use for the machine then the extra expense might well be worth it because I hate redundancy and having to go through the same process over and over each day would aggravate me and leave me with regrets of not spending the extra money. The 3500 has everything the 3300 has plus a little more and if my cash was that way I might not mind spending it. Enjoy what you do get and don't waste any energy resources on regrets.

I got the Pro 750 some years back. After trying the programs I never used them again, always left me disappointed. The thing about the 3300 I like is the ability to set a certain amount of time when I want. I agree, $80-$100 for a few programs is not justifiable.

Normal discount is $405 on Amazon, so it's a good deal

This blender is the real deal! What you may be missing is the fact that this blender will outlast several ninjas nutribullets and even blendtecs. Many folks have learned this the expensive way. Not to mention, nothing works as well. This is a classic example of getting what you pay for.
Every other year I bought a $99 Ninja. This time, I said enough is enough. We are buying a Vitamix with a 7/10 year warranty.

All of the same presets and more are actually available via their App which connects to the blender via Bluetooth,

Well, if you guys are convincing me that the pre-programmed buttons are useless, than correct, no use in paying extra. Although, with 20% off with target red card today on the 2500, it's only $359. I prefer the manual lever buttons as opposed to the push buttons, so I'm leaning towards the 2500. I've been so back and forth, not even funny.

I just found Sam's club has Vitamix 5300 for $279.98. I ordered that and return Vitamix 5200 that I ordered from Amazon.com last week as the container is smaller than Vitamix 5200 and has pulse options. Now, I looked at this deal. With 15% cashback, I had to cancel the order from sam's club and order this after long decision making.

I have a Vitamix 6300 so I'm hesitant buying one with electronic controls. It does have a 10 year warranty so maybe I shouldn't be so worried.

Well, if you like the manual controls and would like a digital timer and would like to save $100 you should consider the Venturist 1200 Vitamix. It's factory reconditioned but it also comes with a sweet accessory package and a 5-year factory warranty.
You can order it from Amazon or the Vitamix factory for the same price. Amazon ships faster if you have Prime. I think it's a super deal if it suits ones needs. It also wold move you into the "future-proof" park allowing bluetooth programs, etc.
I'm really just trying to dizzy you into falling off your chair with decisions! lol
If you make another cancellation we should have some kind of reward for you!
Deciding which deal to pick is a daunting task to say the least!
