So a quick note for today—obviously there are going to be a ton of both Daily and Lightning Deals at Amazon, and if you’re like me, you’ll just keep that window open all day to see what’s coming around. But! I want to call out one in particular: If you’ve been waiting for a Blendtec deal, today they have the Blendtec Total blender listed at $234 (down from the regular price of $400+).
Now, longtime readers likely recall that I am the queen of blenders, in that I use mine a lot and did a ton of research after having a couple of cheap blenders die, and ended up opting for an Oster model given “best buy” status from several consumer publications. I used that Oster for years, and it served me well, but it, too, eventually died. I make a lot of smoothies with frozen fruit, and that’s hard on a blender. Anyway, I then found a refurbished Blendtec and have been using it (and singing its praises) ever since.
Is this a ridiculously expensive blender? Yes. Will you love it and will it keep working for a very long time, cheerfully chewing through anything you throw into it? Yes. This would be a poor impulse buy, and also a bad idea if you don’t use your blender a lot, but if you do use it a lot and really want a top-of-the-line one, this deal today is the one to beat.
No blenders on our shopping lists – but Nerf blasters are and many are in the daily deals today
What I learned from the lightning deals with year — essential oil diffusers are apparently amazingly popular (or are post peek and people are trying to get rid of them). I had no idea.
