Win an Oreck Magnesium AND Oreck Handheld Vacuum, Worth $600!

Win an Oreck Magnesium AND Oreck Handheld Vacuum, Worth $600!

EDITED TO ADD:

We have a winner! Congratulations, Katherine!

I’m just going to straight out cut to the chase: I’m GIVING AWAY a brand spanking new $500 Oreck Magnesium vacuum cleaner, and a Oreck Ultimate Handheld Vacuum Cleaner to go with it!

Why?

BECAUSE I LOVE Y’ALL.

(And because I love my new Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Cleaner, too.)

You can find out all about how to enter to win this vacuum at the end of this post, but first, the back story.

As the luckless cleaner-of-my-own-house, I am somewhat obsessed with housekeeping. It’s important to me to keep things clean and neat, but cleaning does not come naturally to me. I’m not good at it. And so I’ve struggled over the years to find products that work and make my life as a housekeeper a little easier.

A big part of this, obviously, is the vacuum cleaner. I’ve had a vacuum cleaner that many of my friends swoon over for a few years. I’ve had two of them, actually. Both worked GREAT out of the box. But after a year or so, both of them broke in the very same way. When I took one in to be fixed at the best vacuum cleaner repair shop in town, the owner told me to never buy that brand again. Oreck was the best brand, he told me.


So you can imagine my GLEE when Oreck contacted me and asked me to try out its new Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Cleaner and Oreck Ultimate Handheld Vacuum Cleaner, free of charge!

I’ve had my Oreck for two weeks now and I use it almost every day. My favorite thing about it is that it weighs just seven pounds, yet it cleans with the same intensity as my older, MUCH heavier vacuums. The weight of the Oreck Magnesium alone makes cleaning seem so much easier- No more lugging a heavy vacuum up and down the stairs! YAY.

Even my teeny, tiny seven-year-old daughter can carry it around! This is important for one simple reason ….

Now I have vacuuming help!

The Oreck Magnesium uses bags that are easy to put in and remove. Some prefer bagless vacuums, but I love having vacuum bags– They keep the vacuum much cleaner than my prior bagless vacuum, and reduce the amount of dust and grime that I normally have to deal with.

Other than the fact that it’s lightweight and has powerful suction, there’s another factor that makes this vacuum cleaner well worth the $499.99 it costs: That price includes a 7-year warranty and THREE vacuum cleaner tune-ups a year.

People, I paid $150 to have my last vacuum cleaner repaired and cleaned out ONCE … and no parts were replaced! I am beyond thrilled that I can take my Oreck in three times a year and have it tuned up, for free! This alone makes it a far better bargain than the $399 vacuum I’ve been using. It basically guarantees that I’ll have a perfectly-running vacuum for at least the next seven years.

And that will be a first.

The Oreck Magnesium also lays virtually flat, so it goes underneath most of my furniture, which is very helpful.

The ONLY drawback of this vacuum is that it has no attachments. Oreck obviously realized that I’d want something that could address cobwebs and corners, so it also sent this $149.99 Ultimate Handheld Vacuum Cleaner, which has an extension wand, as well as every attachment I could possibly desire…

This is a nifty little vacuum that also has a powerful suction — It’s designed to be worn over your shoulder and is so lightweight that even a four-year-old can wear it.

And you’d better believe that fact wasn’t lost on me!

So… have I convinced you yet that you simply MUST have an Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Cleaner and Oreck Ultimate Handheld Vacuum Cleaner? Well, one of you is going to win them both!

To enter, visit Oreck.com and then leave a comment between now and Monday, February 13th, telling me one thing you learned about the Magnesium.

    I love the HEPA bags! I HATE my disgusting bagless vacuum. This would be perfect for my house since we have many types of floor surfaces. I’m going to cross my fingers that I win one!

  • Evans522

    I love that it’s lightweight, so my 6 year old can use it too! We are a vacuum obsessed family! I too love that is uses bags…I do not get the bagless obsession that some people have?? It is also wonderful that it can lie flat to go under furniture. But my favorite thing is the warranty Oreck gives u! They are a “stand behind their product” company & I so respect that! That is very rare now & it makes me want to support the “old fashioned” companies like Oreck! Awesome product…thank u for highlighting it & giving us the chance to win it! :)

  • http://mix-match08.blogspot.com/ Summer B

    I learned a few things. It used HEPA bags, produces 102 mph airflow, ’glides’ from carpet to bare floors AND it has a long lasting Endurolife belt. Sounds like lots of awesomeness! I could for sure use this having hardwood and carpet!

  • Dawnnlamm

    I learned that it is the most powerful upright in America, but more importantly, it’s cord isnt all exposed like my vacuum!

    A 30 foot cord and two LED headlights – now I can put my insomnia to WORK for me!!

We have an Oreck, a hand-me-down wedding gift, but it’s getting up there in years and I’ve been wanting to replace it AND get a hand-held unit so I can vacuum my stairs. I love that the Oreck weighs less than 8 pounds. I have a 30 pound toddler and another baby on the way – the less I have to lift, the better! :-)

    It’s the lightest, full-powered upright vacuum in America.  This is the fact I covet most. I have an ancient vacuum  cleaner passed to me from my dad – he spent $1500 on it when a salesperson came to his door.  Yes, you read that right, $1500.  Problem is, it weighs a ton. I can only use it on the first floor because I can’t carry it upstairs. There are attachments but they’re hard to use; it self propels so if you happen to run over your toes on it’s way back, well, you just lost all the skin off the top of them. And yes, I do it EVERY time and I always vacuum barefoot because I don’t learn.

  • Amy

    I like the fact that it goes flat to reach under furniture!

  • Dorothy Bleuer

    Here is what I learned:
    “The Oreck Magnesium is not only the lightest Oreck upright ever, it’s
    the lightest, full-powered upright vacuum in America.” Yes please – I have to haul a vacuum up 3 separate flights of stairs.
    And…
    “The two speed Quickswitch™
    on the back of the vacuum enables you to move smoothly across all floor
    types using appropriate power levels: high for carpets and low for
    hardwoods and tile.”  Again, this is great for me … my house has both hardwood and carpet!

    Plus a new vacuum would be awesome – keeping my fingers crossed!

    I just saw this post and it’s three minutes before midnight, Feb 13th, Alaska time, so… maybe it will count.  ;)

    The great joy I just learned about Oreck is that it is light. Ridiculously light. Seven pounds light. Light enough for my bad, way-too-young-to-be-creaking-this-way back to haul it around and whip my weary home into shape.  

    That is worth gold to me.
