Kitchenaid Stand Mixer For A Very Low Price?

blugirlami21 Feb 22, 2012 03:00 PM

Hi, I am trying to decide if I wanted to splurge on a Kitchenaid mixer. The one we have is pretty old and lately I am baking maybe two times a week and I am hoping to do more as time passes. Anyway I finally decided on the Artisan series in green apple. It's usually priced anywhere from 250-300, which seems the norm.

However I have found a seller on both Atomic Mall and Ecrater that is selling this mixer for just under two hundred dollars. They have great feedback and they seem as legit as online sellers could be, should I go for it? I don't want to miss out on this deal but I don't want to be sucked into a scam either. Advice please?

Here's the link in case anyone is interested: http://www.atomicmall.com/seller.php?...

    Just a thought ... you could post a wanted ad (and look for live ones) on freecycle.com. You might be surprised what you can get for free if you have a little time on your hands. craigslist is of course a good option. Also restaurant equipment auctions - commercial grade gear for pennies on the dollar - but they might be bigger than what you want ...

      I searched for about 5 seconds and came across this:
      I'd keep an eye on Kohl's while you are debating to buy from other re or e tailers. I bought my Pro from Kohl's. I don't wanna say, plus I can't remember the exact number, but it was a no brainer deluxe. My assumption would be that the Kohl's Card Holder price is lower because they are counting on you spending more $, or taking on the finance charges if you choose to not keep your account at a zero balance. But that is your choice. You can always just pay the card off, and not get charged more than the sale price. Just a suggestion.

        I don't mind paying for it, I have the money. I am just uber wary of the low, low price that it is being offered at is all. Thanks for the alternatives, I will definitely look into those in the future.

            Go with your gut instinct on this!

          Please search on slickdeals dot net. There are deals frequently that are below $200. Sometimes even that low for the professional. I got mine through Kohl's with a price match and coupon and paid about 40% below retail.

            From what I can tell, if you miss this deal another will be along shortly. They seem to go on sale a lot.

              If you have an old one it's probably built better than what you can buy new. Treat it to a set of new beaters and keep it forever.

                And maybe a tune up.

                  I went ahead and bought it from them for $188 and it is awesome!
