Good deal for KitchenAid

I finally broke down and bought a KitchenAid stand mixer, model 600. I got
a 20% coupon for a single item in the mail from Bed Bath and Beyond. I used
it against the 369 mixer, so that was over $70 off. Then KitchenAid has a
mail in rebate for $50. So over $120 off a $369 mixer was about $249. Nice
deal I think if you are in need of a mixer.

Over here (eastern europe) for 249$ equivalent you can buy a
refridgerator or washing machine. For a mixer I'd rather expect to pay
something between $50 and $100. Quite strange such uncomplicated tool as
mixer costs so much on the other side of the pond.

How does your average income compare to that of someone in the US? I suspect
in many cases that we can more easily afford the $249 than you can afford the
$50 for the same product.

You can spend that little money on a major appliance in the U.S.,
too, but it will be a featureless piece of junk.

KitchenAid's mixers, at least at one time (and, for the
higher-priced ones, maybe still) are related to the commercial
(bakery-quality) mixers sold by Hobart. So they have no problem
handling stiff doughs, etc. -- the kinds of doughs that would cause
smoke to come from most cheaper mixers.

There's no doubt KitchenAid capitalizes on their reputation, so the
mixer costs a bit more. And it's possible that the $369 price is the
"suggested" price, which, in the U.S., is a somewhat fictional price
that hardly anyone pays.

All that said, FDR did some good shopping and has a really nice
mixer. I don't think there's anything unusual about spending that
kind of money for a high-quality mixer.

There is no Model 600, that's the Series.

Kitchen Aid stand mixers have come down in price substantially in the
last two years. The 600 series is available in many models (you don't
say which model), and there are wonderful sales on reconditioned
units... so who knows if you really found such a great bargain (yours
can be last year's model), especially since you can't point us to a web
site to prove up your claim... unless you can show where others can
duplicate your claim then your post is worthless, because without
having to prove-it, as is too often the case, anyone can flap their
gums.

A quick search brought up this:

Average monthly income here 720 USD. Althrough most people earn less
than that, probably most people earn around 400 USD.

But what I was thinking about is that for example electronics is a lot
cheaper in US than over here, so it pays for me to buy much of computer
stuff on eBay from USA even if I have to pay shipping overseas.

So it looks like we can buy much more mixers for one computer than you.
A simple, cheapest electric kettle from China in a big supermarket costs
around 15 USD here.

Well, I'm not the original poster, but have been seriously considering
treating myself to a new mixer and have been looking at the same deal
he used. Presumably, the original poster bought his new mixer at the
store (where I'd be looking to buy mine), but a quick web search turns
up:

http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=106192

as the mixer. I don't see it on the web site, but as I was in the
store looking at it myself a few days ago, I can verify that it is the
version with all metal contruction.

The rebate on the mixer can be found in your first link. (It's a
manufacturer's rebate and available on the purchase from BB&B. And
again, while I don't see it on the web site I linked, my local store at
least had the rebate advertised.) And 20% off a single item coupons
are easy enough to come by from BB&B. There's no link I can give you,
but sign up, and they'll be happy to send you one a month. Heck, if
you have a local BB&B, you may get them sent to you even if you don't
sign up to receive them.
