    I am trying to print paperwork for a friend as she has 2 Vitamix and she doesn’t get good reception to use her internet on her phone where she lives Unfortunately it’s not letting me

    ADMIN – Hi Sandra,

    You are not giving me enough information to help you. Why don’t you have your friend reach out to the class action admin to see if they can mail her the forms .

    OK, so my vitamix is about 5 years old; of course I don’t have the proof of purchase still. How do we do this if we need proof of purchase? Nobody saves their receipt for 10 years!

    ADMIN – Hi Joanne,

    You don’t need a receipt. You need the serial number from your blender.
