I would have bought a couple myself, and I got one as a wedding present. Put them in the closet for Wedding Gifts.

  • the 5-quart Artisan, regular $399.99 with a $20 mail-in rebate
  • and the 6-quart Professional, regular $499.99 for $99.99 with a $50 mail-in rebate!
My wife said, "LET'S GO!" I said, "Nah, they'll never honor it -- it must be a misprint."

But we went and they did -- we simply showed them the ad, and the housewares manager said, "OMG! Well, somebody made a mistake, but you'll get it for that price." Plus she gave us another $10 off due to some other promo. Amazing!

So we're are now the proud owners of a shiny new 575-watt, 6-quart, top-of-the-line KitchenAid KP26M1X Pearl Metallic Stand Mixer.

Final price: $47.41, plus the cost of a stamp to send in the rebate form.

It pays to pay attention to the ads in the paper, and it never hurts to ask.

Now, who's ready for 13 dozen chocolate chip cookies?
WOWOWOWOWOW! Merry Christmas to YOU!!!!! What a great deal.

Use it in good health.

Wow! I would have bought two--one for a gift.
Now, go to the Macy's website and give a good review to the person who helped you. I do that all the time. It tells you on the receipt what to do. Spread the good karma around.

That happened a couple of years ago. I was on a different forum (not cooking related) and it posted that Macy's had a misprint. I know several people who got the Artisan model for $100. Not as great of a steal, but still pretty good!
