I spoke with my rep at Blendtec who filled me in on the BEST BLENDTEC DEAL EVER for Black Friday!!! Get the Certified Refurbished Blendtec for $209.95 by clicking here!!! This is $50 off their normal price! It has a full 7 year warranty so there is no risk. We got ours for about $300 at Costco and we thought THAT was a good deal! Why buy new when you have a 7 YEAR WARRANTY?! We use our Blendtec literally every day to make smoothies, soups, sauces, shred chicken….you name it!
