QVC TSVVitamix Creations GC Galaxy Class (K36187), Vitamix Creations Turbo (K40173), and Creations II (K38242) Vitamix 12-in-1 are creating quite a stir. We have been receiving an overwhelming amount of questions about the QVC Vitamix blenders.

This review will quickly help answer what the difference is between Vitamix Creations and 5200 Series. Learn why the 5200 may be the better blender for you.

Everyone loves to save money and many shoppers trust QVC as they have been on TV for quite some time. When on special, QVC Vitamix Creations blenders can sell at a lower price than a new Vitamix 5200 direct from Vitamix. Many people like that QVC offers a payment plan but don’t realize that Vitamix also offers a payment plan. Some folks like the QVC return policy but don’t know that Vitamix offers a 30-Day Risk Free trial. A return to Vitamix is 100% free while a return to QVC costs are NOT.

Blenders sold direct from Vitamix.com include a Vitamix 30-Day risk free trial with FREE return.

Let’s review why many people think these are the same blender.

The first thing to understand is that the “Vitamix Creations Series” was created exclusively for QVC (and Vitamix is contractually obligated to advertise them on their site for a higher price). They are in fact based on the 5200 series with a few differences. Both the Vitamix Creations and the Vitamix 5200 Series have the same base and motor. There is NO difference in power or controls, the difference between models is only in package accessories and details.

How do the models differ?

  • » Warranty: Creation Series has a shorter warranty period (5 years versus 7 years)
  • » Recipe Book: QVC blenders come with their unique recipe book, called “Creations”
  • » Payment Plan: When offered, QVC offers 5 payments while Viamix’s plan is 3 payments
  • » Returns: Direct Vitamix returns during the trial period are 100% covered by Vitamix (no fee and no shipping) – QVC returns are not free (cost varies depending upon the offer)
  • » Colors: QVC is known for offering a wider range of colors (If you are looking for a certain color be sure to check out Vitamix Reconditioned models as they often include the QVC colors)

A note about power difference. There is a lot of rumors and confusion as to why the GC is “more powerful” than the 5200. When it was first released, the Creations GC was advertized as “the most powerful Vitamix made” because it draws 1 amp more power. After long discussions with Vitamix it was determined that this “extra power” of the motor was a result of the GC being the only home Vitamix at the time that had the cooling fan run constantly, no matter the speed, which therefore needed to draw more power.

Update: Get a Reconditioned Vitamix for $299 – limited time offer.
If you really want to get the most for every dollar then you MUST consider a Factory Reconditioned Vitamix direct from Vitamix and save at least $90. That’s $50+ LESS than QVC with the same warranty!
