We can’t believe we found this bestseller on sale (hint: it’s a Vitamix)


There are two kinds of people who can benefit from Friday's featured deal: Those who want to add a top-of-the-line blender to their kitchen; and those who might end up shopping for someone like that this holiday season.

When we see a Vitamix blender marked down 33%, it catches our eye, and we knew it had to lead our super roundup of deals for this weekend as well.

In that collection, you'll find markdowns on wine, a Bose product, and items for your pet — basically, all the things that make weekends fun. 

You'll also find practical items as we browsed top retailers like Amazon , Dermstore and Macy's to complete the list.

Featured deal of the day

Vitamix A2500 Ascent Series Smart Blender

Are you ready to bring some smart technology to your meal prep tasks? The Ascent Series Smart Blender by VItamix offers impressive capabilities that include self-detecting technology built into the base that adjusts the machine to the size of the container for precise results. It has variable speed control and although the motor runs cool, it can produce enough friction to make hot soup without the need to cook it once the ingredients are prepared. It's 33% off right now and you'll pay just $399.99.
