Best Buy

One will get you up and out, while the other keeps you going all day with fast and easy nutrition. A reliable Ninja 12-cup coffee maker and Ninja 10-speed blender system are both currently on sale at Best Buy, marked down as much as 50% for today only.

Let's start with the blender. Ninja has become one of the leaders in home blending with high-powered machines that liquify ice and frozen foods in seconds. Once you use a good blender it's impossible to go back, and the Ninja's 1,500-watt motor is more than enough muscle to turn blocks of ice into frozen drinks and smoothies or whole ingredients into fresh soups and sauces. Power-wise, it's just a step below the Vitamix but for a fraction of the cost. 

Right now the Ninja Chef 10-speed blender, with a 72-ounce container, a small smoothie cup to take on the go and a tamper tool, is just $100, marked down from $200 for today only. This unit ships for free and will arrive by this Friday. Or order online and pick it up in-store today. (Note that Amazon is matching this price, but it's out of stock there.)

"Programmable with a large reservoir, warming plate, good looking. Plus it makes very good coffee," is just one of the glowing reviews we found for the Ninja 12-cup coffee system, currently marked down to $60 from its original $100 today at Best Buy. A few other features you'll appreciate include a removable water tank for easy filling, reusable filter for less waste and brew-pause feature for those mornings you just can not wait another second. 

The Ninja coffee system -- currently $40 off the sticker price at Best Buy -- also ships for free by this coming Friday or pick it up in-store the same day (must be ordered online). It's also $40 off at Amazon, putting it within $2 of its Black Friday low.
