I needed a new blender one time and decided I wanted a KitchenAid Blender. I checked around at all the stores and found that Bed, Bath & Beyond had the best deal. They had one that sold for $120 on sale for $100. Since I had a store coupon for 20% off one item, that brought the price down to $80. And there just happened to be a mail-in rebate for $20 to KitchenAid. So I ended up getting my blender for half price. It was a great bargain!
I use it the most to make smoothies or a fruitlatti, and it has no trouble with the ice. We use it almost daily during the summer so it really gets used a lot then. I feel blessed to get such a wonderful blender for such a wonderful price!
