Everyone loves to save money and many shoppers trust QVC as they have been on TV for quite some time. When on special, 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 for 3 or 5 payments. Some folks like the QVC return policy but don’t know that Vita-mix offers a 30-Day Risk Free trial with 100% free returns while a return to QVC costs are NOT free.

Blenders sold direct from 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 “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 blender. Both the Creations and the 5200 are C-Series blenders with the same base and motor. There is NO difference in power or controls, the difference between models is only in package accessories and warranty.

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: QVC offers 5 payments while Viamix’s plan is 3 or 5 payments
  • » Returns: Direct Vitamix returns during the trial period are 100% free (no fee and no shipping) – QVC returns have a fee (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 all colors produced)

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!
