    Just bought the Costco one also. Very happy with it. We mostly make smoothies so the wild side jar works just fine - even with spinach!

    So the carafe says wildside but I thought that was a three sided thing

    @stlcharcoal

    I was referring to the Robot Coupe.

    They are the industry standard. I have used one once and will never be satisfied by anything else.


    Wow!  I thought that was just a funny name you made up.  I have seen them before, but never knew the actual name for them.  Those immersion blenders are huge!  Looks like you could propel a canoe with one.

    Thanks Gary. I have to find the receipt but I think I'll take it back. In any case I want red. I tossed the French cookbook, will they still take it back?

    Costco will take it back as long as all hardware is there.

    Tell them you're doing the next customer a favour!  If you really want no hassle, return it 5 minutes before closing  :D

    Just joined the blendtec group today at costco She stopped and bought a cart of fruits. 20min after we got home and I had a glass of smoothy. Thanks Little Steven for the heads up nice price. It did come with the wildside jug didn't want the plain jug. Smoothies are twice as smooth as our old kitchenaid blender ones. Daughter said what is that for when she saw the box noticed herIpad in her hand, said google "will it blend ipad"LOL

     Did find the coupons online that one has the twister jar included, but US costco only.

    OMG. Not the ones with the kale and the vegetable powder. I eat enough hot food to look after that stuff. I did them two days running and the old caibo was like a rocket platform.

    My go to smoothie is one banana, hand full of berries, one scoop of vinilla protein powder, a hand full of spinach and a hand full of ice.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    When I was at BB&B I was told can't use the 20% on vita-mix. Y'all were able to use?
    Boom

  • FiremanyzFiremanyz Posts: 496
    Yes I used a 20% on a vitamix at BB&B. I would look at the coupon and see if the fine print states that. If it does not go back in and try again. If they shoot you down ask to speak to the MOD and ask them why? I would push the case hard as it is a 100 savings. I have never had a problem using any coupons there. They even take their expired coupons.

  • Our go to smoothie is 2tbsp peanut butter, one cup milk, 1 banana, 2 tbsp chocolate syrup, and 1tbsp honey. If you use frozen bananas it taste like a milkshake

    @Little Steven sure you don't want to return the old one and buy this instead?  $379 with two jars and shipping included.  Possibly cheaper if you catch them at a roadshow.  Sale ends Dec 1.
