I got a refurbished one from the Kitchenaid website. It was about half price what it normally would have been and it works great.

I found mine on Craigs List for 100.00. Worth taking a look.

Good Luck!!

I would consider the Cuisinart (1000 watts) It is a fantastic machine and I am thrilled with it. It is a better price than KA. I had a KA that died and I was set on buying another, then started researching and was impressed with the reviews on this one. It has a 7 qt bowl and a timer. I got it for a great price -you get more for your $, or so I felt...There is a big debate as to whether the KA is a still considered a superior product because they may no longer use a metal gear box. I couldn't find an answer in the end but was already sold on this:

Keep in mind, it goes on sale regularly and I got mine for $100 less than above and this is in Canada where it's more expensive than the US.
I make a lot of fondant in my mixer, so this was the one for me (being that it had the best reviews for bread making)

Happy shoppping!

I agree with cakes rock, for those of you who are still thinking about it. I have had many problems with my kitchenaid, there customer service leaves much to be desired, and only 1 year warrenty. I researched it online, and my problems were nothing compared with what others were experiencing. Next time I will surely go with cuisinart

Someone just posted this website on another thread - THANK YOU!! You'll have to check it out before you buy - free coupons, some for 40-50% off at certain stores, but I found this one for Kohl's - 15% off a $100 purchase. Happy shopping!! http://dealspl.us/kohls-coupons
