Purchasing a Vitamix, if you live in Canada, used to be both difficult and expensive. Not long ago, many Canadians would purchase their Vitamix direct from the Vitamix.ca website or by calling customer service at 1-800-848-2649. The prices were higher and the selection much more limited than for those in the United States.
We’re glad to report that is no longer the case in 2017! Canada has many of the same models offered in the USA now. There are some models that aren’t offered, but it’s not like it used to be.
Canadian Vitamix Models
Vitamix has four series of blenders, and Vitamix Canada offers all four of them:
Vitamix Ascent Series (the newest series launched in 2017)
Vitamix Legacy Series (combined Classic Series and Next-Gen Series)
Vitamix Personal Series
Vitamix Certified Reconditioned
As of August 2017, the 11 most popular Vitamix models available in Canada are:
- Vitamix A2300
- Vitamix A2500
- Vitamix A3300
- Vitamix A3500 (Blender Reviews personal favorite!)
- Vitamix Turboblend Two Speed
- Vitamix Pro 750
- Vitamix 780 (We own this one and love it!)
- Vitamix 7500
- Vitamix Certified Reconditioned 5300
- Vitamix Certified Reconditioned Standard
- Vitamix Certified Reconditioned Standard Programs (the best reconditioned blender you can get in Canada)
Vitamix used to offer two unique models, packaged eight different ways, specifically for it’s Canadian customers. The two models were the Total Nutrition Center and the Aspire. They no longer offer these, thankfully, and have gotten away from country-specific models.
They now sell, basically, the same packages in Canada that are offered in the US. Canada just doesn’t get 100% of all the models offered in the USA, but in our opinion, they cover the most popular models so nothing is lost by living in Canada.
How to get a US Vitamix in Canada
Luckily, if you have your heart set on one of the models only available in the US, you can get the Vitamix you want and save a bit of money over the regular Canadian pricing with a little bit of work.
If you have family or a friend in the United States, or can ship to a US address, you can order any of the packages offered only in the US at the US price, which is likely a lot cheaper than what you’ll pay for a similar model if purchased directly from the Canadian Vitamix site.
While their website is programmed in such a way to direct any Canadian visitors directly to the Canadian site, making it impossible for you to complete your purchase online, you can place an order for a US package by calling Vitamix Customer Service at 1-800-848-2649.
I have verified this with my contacts, Janet (extension 2316) and Brenda (extension 2305), but any of their customer service representatives should be more than happy to help you purchase your Vitamix.
When placing your order, you can use our promotion code 06-035 to get free shipping (a $35 CA value) to the US shipping address. From there, you’ll either need to arrange to have the package shipped to your address in Canada (which should cost around $50-60 for customs and shipping) or you can arrange to pick it up directly from your friend or family in the US.
This should mean big savings over what you’ll pay for the Canadian models and even opens up the opportunity to purchase Certified Reconditioned Vitamix packages or the newer models.
