Retailer deals throughout the year

Throughout the year, retailers will put on promotions of their own, offering chances to save on the covetable stand mixers. Some will even price-match if you're lucky, or offer special Friends and Family type sales where KitchenAid is included in storewide promotions. These are the best places to find KitchenAid mixers on sale.

Black Friday through Christmas

This year's Black Friday and Cyber Week deals saw KitchenAid offer up to $200 off its KitchenAid Stand Mixer, with the Professional Series having the highest savings. 

These prices were effective from about just before Black Friday through Christmas, when the offer was ongoing, but we definitely have noticed inventory in color choice start to dwindle. 

Amazon Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day has sealed its fate as a shopping event; fortunately, KitchenAid is known to participate. In 2022, prices on the Artisan dropped around $100 for roughly two weeks surrounding the October Prime Day period. 

Prior to that, in July, prices dropped about $50-$60, making it prime time for those looking for discounts.

Purchase certified refurbished
KitchenAid directly offers certified refurbished models that come with a limited warranty with savings of up to 45%, but inventory is limited and volatile. You can often find refurbished models on eBay to that also come with their own warranties. 

Buy used and secondhand
The biggest discounts will come when you purchase a used unit. Also, shopping locally, as opposed to shipping can save on costs and environmental emissions. Check your local re-sale marketplaces like Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, or Mercari to see which neighbors are looking to offload their kitchen appliances 

Open box products
Some stores like Best Buy offer discounts on open-box models (items that have been opened but not used) from returns or floor models that can be picked up at your local retailer. Availability depends on your location. Be sure to read the fine print as to the condition.
