So you want a new fancy, colorful KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer? Or maybe it’s one of the other models that you’re dreaming about like the Architect, Pro Line, Ultra or Classic? Well, this coming Thanksgiving weekend we are expecting to see a number of different models and colors on sale with prices typically ranging from $200 to $300 depending on what model you end up choosing. While we don’t yet have any deals to report just yet, other than their current outlet offers, we will be updating this page as we go along and get closer to Black Friday.
In the meantime, let’s go through some of the most popular KitchenAid mixer deals from 2015. We’re ordering them in preference of our favorite picks (i.e. best value for the buck). But before we begin, if you are not sure what the differences are between the different models, including both design and motor strength (just like we had no idea that there were some many variations between before we shopped for our own machine), then be sure to check out this helpful post in the KitchenAid Blog from our friends up in Canada.
#1 – Kohls. They are advertising KitchenAid Artisan (model KSM150PS) 5-qt. Stand Mixer on sale for $349.00 (normally $449.99). But then if you shop online, you’ll be able to use promo code NOV15 to get 15% off and then you’ll be able to send in a $50.00 manufacturer rebate on top of that which drops the price down to $247.49. As an added bonus, you’ll earn an extra $75.00 in Kohl’s Cash to use on a future purchase. Just keep in mind that there is a $7.50 shipping surcharge on this item.
#2 – Bon-Ton. They are advertising a closeout price on the KitchenAid Silver Metallic Artisan 5 quart stand mixer a final sale price of $199.97 after $50.00 rebate. On top of that you’ll also get a $25.00 Bon-Ton store gift card so effectively if you count that in your getting the machine for just $174.97 before tax. This offer was available from Thanksgiving day from 5:00pm through Friday 3:00pm while supplies lasted.
#3 – Macy’s. Macy’s is advertising the Architect, which is identical to Artisan except that it comes in several exclusive metallic colors, for $264.99 with a free Food Grinder Attachment (a $49.99 value). That’s at a $314.99 sale price and after the $50.00 rebate that you’ll need to send it. There are three different colors to choose from – A red, grey, and blue. Is this worth paying more for? That’s for you to decide. This offer is valid from Thanksgiving day, Thursday from 6:00pm to Friday at 1:00pm Friday, and then again on Saturday from 7:00am to 1:00pm.
#4 – Amazon. On Black friday most machines in a variety of colors, from Empire Red to Buttercup to Green Apple and in between, on sale for $269.99 plus free shipping (no rebates or other hoops to jump through). But as you know with Amazon, their prices change all the time and although we wen’t monitoring the deals leading up to the Friday or over the weekend, we did notice that the price dropped to below $200.00 for several hours on Cyber Monday so just keep that in mind.
#5 – Belk. For 2015 they were advertising the 5-quart Artisan in any color you wanted for $299.99 after $50.00 mail-in rebate. They also had an early-bird special for an extra 15% off on top of that if you shopped between 6:00pm Thursday and 1:00pm on Friday which would save you an extra $50.00 or so, therefor dropping the effect final price down to under $250.00.
#6 – Sam’s club. We found this offer confusing because the ad states that it’s the Artisan model but the quart capacity makes us believe it’s the Classic model, so we’re not sure what to make of it. But the price was good if it indeed was the Artisan at a sale price of $199.98 with no extra rebate to send in. The only thing was that you had to be a current Sam’s Club member to buy it and it was only available online.
#7 – Best Buy. They didn’t have any good deals on the Artisan model for 2015 but advertised the Classic model for $199.00 ($50.00 off) and the Professional 5 Plus series (6 quart capacity) for $224.99 (after $225.00 off). Not really anything to get excited about – We would skip on these two machines in light of the other offers available.
#8 – Target. Target was advertising the Ultra mixer, a step down in both power and capacity when compared to the Artisan, for $249.00 ($50.00 off) with an extra $20.00 store gift card free. This was another offer that was probably best to be avoided.
#9 – Costco. The KitchenAid models at Costco can be a bit funky at time so just keep that in mind if you’re planning on buying attachments. They have a coupon for $40.00 off on what looked pretty similar to the Artisan just the 4.5 quart capacity lead us to believe this was rather the Classic model.
#10 – JC Penny. The Artisan was on sale for $299.99 after the $50.00 rebate so not particularly anything exciting. They also had the Classic model on sale for $199.99 after the same $50.00 mail-in rebate.
#11 – Sears. They had the Artisan available Thursday through Saturday for $379.00 with a $30.00 store points deals and $50.00 rebate. So that would bring you in at just under $300.00 which was one of the worst deals we could find all weekend. But then instead you could get the Professional model for $199.99 ($100.00 off) which was the bestir deal of the two.
#12 – Walmart. They didn’t not featured any KitchenAid mixers in their black friday ad scan in 2015 so we can’t tell you if it was or wasn’t on sale. However, we found the ad from 2014 on Classic model so here it is for your reference:
