Looking at the KitchenAid Classic deal previously posted by RonT, it got me googling to jog the memory of the differences and benefits of choosing the Artisan over the Classic. Deals aside, RonT's deal would have trumped it if not for the added promo and store credit available on the Artisan plus the added attachment. The Artisan and the added credit/attachment, I believe is as good as if not the better deal, especially if you have use for the attachments.
We currently own an Artisan of our own. The MIL's previous mixer gave up the ghost so we were looking at replacing hers as a mother's day gift/birthday present with the classic in RonT's deal. We have use for a mincer AND the pasta roller (we already own the other pasta maker attachment) so these deals work in our favour. The plan is to get her the Artisan model with the 3 piece pasta roller, then use the store credit to purchase the better stainless/metal Kitchenaid mincer attachment with a few dollars of store credit to spare. Now we'll only have to share attachments and not the whole mixer! (they're heavy and a pain to cart anywhere!)
Comparing models, the Artisan has its added benefits alone.
- Larger bowl - 4.8L vs 4.3L
- 2 bowls - 4.8L AND 2.8L
- Larger/stronger motor (for tougher mixes, thick doughs, etc)
- Splash guard
Those things aside, it's only available in SILVER as outlined in the mother's day store credit redemption (as with the white only in RonT's deal). Otherwise, the colours are all $699 and you then only qualify for the click & collect credit.
Package deal consists of:
- $649 - Kitchenaid Artisan - chrome/silver
- $202 - 3 piece pasta roller; Promo Ends 12/05/19 3piece Pasta Roller for reference
- $100 - credit via redemption Click here
- $100 - click and collect credit. See here
So taking into account ticketed prices, effectively $247 for the mixer and you can keep or sell the attachment (the next most recent price with a quick search showed the pasta roller set privately for around $140-150 mark, best OzB price of $173). If you're in the market for other items (other KitchenAid attachments?) the store credit is usable $$$ in my eyes.
See terms. The click and collect store credit is valid for 14 days after email voucher is received. The mothers day promo credit is valid until 26/07/19 so do take these into consideration when making your purchase.
EDIT As pointed out by alanslho, the attachment promo ends on the 12/05/19 so be sure to align all of your dates to maximise your return.
Kudos to the previous posted deals by RonT & Lastchancetosee:
My biggest post yet, the formatting took forever on my phone.
Hopefully this deal can help others. 👍
