You hear us often talk about how buying quality products at the BEST price is how we see being frugal, this is the perfect example of what we are always talking about! Yes the regular price of $129 is worth it, you are getting a high quality product that will last you and after replacing a cheap blender a few times you could have avoided the situation by purchasing the high quality one instead(that was a lesson learned in our household by Tom after multiple cheap blenders breaking and him not giving in to me buying a Kitchen Aid one) .
But what is better then saving money on that high quality item? Nothing! You are getting the HIGH quality with the GREAT frugal Price tag!
Right now on Amazon you can get the KitchenAid 5-Speed Blenders with Polycarbonate Jars for $66.37! I have the same one, just in red and I LOVE mine! I have not had a single issue with it and I can use it for just about anything I need to! Mine has been used for things that the cheap ones broke when I used it, like when I made smoothies with frozen apples(that is how I broke one of the cheap ones Tom bought once). If you are looking for a blender that will last and you want to get a great price on it I recommend the KitchenAid 5-Speed Blenders with Polycarbonate Jars that is on sale right now.
I do not know how long they will keep this price so I would get in on the deal now if you are wanting it. It would also be a great gift for the cook on your Holiday shopping list!
