Vita Mix will be demonstrated (and for sale) at Costco in Omaha June 10-19th. I purchased my machine through Costco because they had the best price in town, which also meant NO shipping! Costco also has a “no limits” return policy, so I knew I could try out the machine for a while to make sure I liked it. Also, there would be no shipping fees for returning it. As you’ve likely guessed, I never decided to return it! We use it to make healthful smoothies everyday and all sorts of fun desserts, etc. These machines are expensive (just under $400) but well worth the money, especially if you’re looking to incorporate more veggies into your diet!
