Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Giveaway {$500 Value!}



When I went to Haven, Oreck was a sponsor and had a booth there. I was looking forward to meeting with them because my mom has been a huge Oreck fan for YEARS. Her old Oreck is still going strong after I don’t even know how long.

I got home from Haven and found out that I had won an Oreck Magnesuim vacuum cleaner!!!!!!

If you would have told me when I was a teenager, or even in college, that I would get THIS excited over a vacuum I would have laughed my rear end off. But A) I am a clean freak now and B) I have been using a shop vac as a vacuum for over a year now. Yes, a shop vac. I have been trying to vacuum my whole house with the attachment on my shop vac. And it sucks (pardon the pun :P).

How sexy is this vacuum???

You heard me. Sexy. This ain’t my momma’s vacuum :)

Have you ever seem such a cool design for a vacuum?

Well, it is not all about looks……

This vacuum is the lightest, full powered upright in America. I told my husband that and he said “So, why would that matter.” Clearly he was not impressed with my infomercial-ish introduction I gave him the second he walked in the door from work.

But as soon as he tried it he was sold. He was impressed with how it felt as he vacuumed. And guess what else…..

Dude. This vacuum lays FLAT. It can go under your furniture in a way no other vacuum ever has.

(I am not sure why my pictures are uploading lately with grey lines across them……)

My one concern with this vacuum was that it does not have any attachments. With all the other vacuums I have owned I use the hose a lot to clean along the baseboards.

I swear my kids walk along the edge of the room every time they eat fishy crackers. How else do all those crumbs get there???

Anyway, I was VERY surprised and impressed that it managed to get the crumbs along the baseboards. I don’t know if it is because of the design or the powerful suction, or both. But I did not have to get out my handheld to do the baseboards. I am sure that every now and then I will want to use a hose when I am deep cleaning. But for everyday vacuuming it did wonderful.

I am happy to say that I get to giveaway an Oreck Magnesium vacuum!!! That is a $500.00 value!

The giveaway winner must be a resident of the U.S. 48 contiguous states. Here are the ways you can enter…..

  2. Angela Edge says

    I like that the Oreck Magnesium uses an inner Hepa liner to trap more allergens. With four dogs, I need this vacuum!

  3. says

    I am REALLY wishing I would have just stood in line at HAVEN and talked with these guys!! WOW! What a vacuum!! And I’m wantin me one!! (along with a steamer!!!) ;)

  4. Jessica Anderson says

  5. Nicole says

    Am dreaming of vaccuuming with this! Would love a vaccuuming that can handle both my carpet AND hardwoods!

  6. Hydrangeas and Harmony says

    That is definitely a sleek looking machine. I’ve used an Oreck before (not mine) and loved how lightweight it was. Online I found out that it comes with a 7-year limited warranty* and 3 yearly tune-ups. I can’t imagine needing the warranty but it’s nice to know it’s available. Awesome giveaway!

  7. says

    I am a vacuuming fool. Fool, I tell ya. And I need a new one SO BAD. Please random generator, pick me, pick me!
    Thanks for a shot at the title. :)

  8. says

    I just recently discovered your blog and I LOVE it!! We have 7 kiddos and I’m CONSTANTLY cleaning my floors…this would be a wonderful new tool to help in my quest for clean floors! :D Thanks for this great opportunity!

  9. says

    i SO want this :) i am a single mom with 3 kids and a big dog. this vacuum sounds like heaven. when i read that it feels like it is self propelled my heart skipped a beat. no more shoving the vacuum around the house? yes please!!

  10. Kimberly Mayberry says

    WOW!! I would love a new Oreck!! It would be nice to vacuum with such a sleek, lightweight machine!! I would smile every time I used it!! :)

    • says

      Whoops! I commented before I saw what I had to comment about. :) I love that it is so lightweight AND powerful. It’s getting harder and harder to lift my heavy vacuum up the stairs, and I would love to have one that is so light!

  11. says

    This vacuum looks awesome! I didn’t know that Oreck will let you try any vacuum risk free for 30 days and if you don’t lov eit they will even pay for return shipping! That is awesome!

  12. Mrs Merriweather says

    Awesome! Love Oreck, my Grandma has an older model that still works great. Would love to join Oreck family!

  13. Courtney says

    I love that it lays flat AND that it can easily switch from carpet to wood! This is an awesome vacuum!!

  14. Lisa Durst says

    Need a new back badly. Always wanted a Oreck!!9
    Darn auto correct! Not only do I need a new back, but also a vac! LOL

  15. Connie Neville says

    This would be such a blessing to our family. I read on the Oreck website that this comes with a 7-year limited warranty and 3 yearly tune-ups. That is awesome!

  16. Michelle says

    I definitely could use a fabulous new vacuum! The 2 speed Quickswitch that allows you to move smoothly across all floor surfaces sounds fabulous, and i love that it lies virtually flat for cleaning under furniture. I also love that it is lightweight and has large rear wheels for easy maneuverability!

  17. Melissa H. says

    I love that they have a trial period! If you don’t love it you can return i! Awesome! I also am loving their steam products!! I think I might need one of those AND a vacuum!!

  18. Susan M. says

    Oh, I have two messy little guys and three furry pets – I NEED this “porsche” of a vacuum!!!

  19. says

    Is it pathetic that I got super (SUPER) excited to see how clean it got along your baseboards. I think little children are in on a big goldfish crumb scattering conspiracy! I would love this vacuum.

    I learned that it can be used on a variety of floors – – yee haw!

  20. says

    ooh, flat under the furniture!?!?.. amazing! I also have a cheap-ey vacuum. Luckily I have no kids yet, so for now it works, but ooh how lovely this one looks!

  21. MeganM. says

    I learned that it works on hardwood and carpet! So awesome! I desperately need a vacuum. I keep borrowing my sisters becuase I can’t afford to buy one right now. She would be so jealous if I won. ;) Thanks for the awesome giveaway and enjoy your new vacuum!!

  22. Brinda says

    I love that this vacuum has two different power levels for the hardwood floor and carpet – that would be an awesome feature for my different floor types!

  23. says

    I had to laugh when I read that you’ve been using a shop vac for a year…I’ve been doing the exact same thing! After about 2 years of that I did finally go out and buy a vacuum! I’m so glad you have one now too…I only had a couple of area rugs that needed vacuumed but wall-to-wall carpet with a shop vac…in sane!

  24. Tiffany says

    I just found your site a few days ago and absolutely love it!!!! Looking forward to when I can spend time reading past posts!

  25. TAMI says

    I am Super excited to see that Oreck supports Breast Cancer with their Clean for the cure campaign and donates matching monies! :)

  26. Sally R says

    I found out it would be perfect for me because I have a lot of hardwood floors and grandkids with allergies.

  27. Brittany Allen says

    This vacuum sure is sexy!! I am on my fifth {CRAPY} vacuum in seven years and would LOVE to win this one so I dont ever have to buy one again!! My M-I-L has an old Oreck from eons ago and it still works like a dream!

  28. Amber R says

    I think I’m most impressed that this vacuum can lay completely flat and get under a lot of my furniture without me moving it all over.

  29. says

    LOVE how easily it goes from carpet to hardwood and how it is so lightweight. My current sweeper weighs 18 pounds and we have two sets of stairs….so I to have been using the shopvac!!

  30. Dj says

    It lays flat. With two dogs and one cat, the fur flies at our house. Being able to get under furniture is a huge deal.

  31. Kim says

    It lays flat, has special filters, and the back wheels make it especially maneuverable. My vacuum has about fifty broken parts and limps around my house when I clean. I so need a new one.

  32. says

    Following my husband’s brain surgery last week (which you probably read about), my sister-in-law volunteered to clean my house. (Awesome sis, right? AWESOME!) She brought her Oreck, which she absolutely adores. I have a Kirby, but the thing is so incredibly heavy and bulky that we all hate to use it. (I use it because, well, you gotta vacuum, you know?) Her Oreck did such a fantastic job AND it didn’t kill her back, arms or hands like my Kirby does.

    So. I. Want. :)

  33. Arlynn says

    This little dream machine is sexy indeed… Lovely! I stopped by the Oreck site and learned that the Magnesium vacuum cleaner is super maneuverable thanks to the large high-performance rear wheels with cylindrical wheel bearings :-) Smart stuff here! I’m really crossing my fingers for this giveaway – our old vacuum just isn’t doing it anymore; not that it ever did much :-/ After all, it wasn’t an Oreck, ha!

  34. Allyssa says

    I have been searching for a new vacuum but have been so worried about which one to get. This one shows solutions to all my needs to clean up after my two messy babies. I need something with strong suction power and light weigh is just more of a dream than anything else! The saniseal system sounds like the solution to my problem with my ancient vac that I have had since we got married. I am constantly using the tube because the suction in my vac doesnt suck anything! I am just going through the motions to make myself think the carpet is clean. Please please please pick me! I will even blog about the winning experience! I have never won anything before. This would be AMAZING! Thanks :o)


  35. leslie says

    It is good for all floor types!

    Winning this would be perfect. My vacuum just died on me, and I have terrible allergies and way too much carpet (in a rental). Pick me! Pick me!

  36. Makiah says

    I so desperately need this vacuum. My boyfriend and I live with a roommate—who is a SLOB! It’s like we inherited a do-nothing son when we agreed to be his roommate. (Who contributes to nothing aside from his third of the rent…no cleaning/cleaning supplies/groceries/paper goods/etc…) Anyway, our vacuum died on us and it is essential for cleaning up roommates crumbs…and just cleaning in general. LOL! Pick me!! :(

  37. Jamie says

    This will be such a blessing for a lucky reader, what a great giveaway! My current vacuum doesn’t do the job, but it’s not in the budget. Your review of the vacuum has definitely gotten me excited!

  38. Laura B says

    I have 2 dogs, 1 cat, and 2 very hairy people living in 1 tiny house. Our current vacuum is dead and we are saving up for a new one now. Winning this would be amazing!

  39. twelve30 says

    I love how it lays flat to go under furniture & that it is also light weight. Thanks!

  40. Ginny says

    I LOVE that this vacuum is just under 8 pounds and EXTREMELY powerful! I’ve never seen a vacuum get the crumbs right next to the baseboard. It’s unbelievable!

  41. Nicole Cottrell says

    Woo hoo! I am in desperate need of a new vacuum, considering my 8 year old one just tanked on me.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  42. Kelly Ann~ says

    You have no idea-how bad I need a NEW VACUUM!!!
    Please count me in- Love your blog!

  43. Rebecca Hyronimus says

    I learned that I’ll have a newborn that will weigh more than this vacuum. Oy. I need smaller babies. :) I also like the HEPA filter… we are definitely an allergy prone household!

  44. Felicia Mathis says

    What an awesome opportunity! I visited oreck.com and found out that the Magnesium Vacuum roller brush spins at 7,000 revolutions a minute. It seems like a powerhouse at cleaning and I would love to win one!!!

  45. Ruth says

    I want this thing so bad I’m drooling. There is very few vacuums on the market that can sweep a hardwood floor without a bulk load of attachments you have to put on.

  46. says

    Oh my this looks impressive! We have all wood floors in our house, except one room, but still…we need a vacuum! Mine keeps falling over and hitting me in the head.

  47. says

    I learned it has a super long cord. Thanks for the giveaway. :)

  48. The Farm Girl says

    That vacuum looks awesome. I learned that it has a place to clip the cord so it stays out of your way. Sweet!!

  49. Janel Pooran says

    Wow – it has 102mph airflow speed…That’s insane. My current vac has very little suction, so that sounds amazing.

  50. Nichole says

    The Oreck Magnesium Vacuum weighs less than 8 lbs!! That’s pretty amazing for such a powerful vacuum!

    • Sarah Elliott says

      I love that it will go under furniture. Being 8 mos pregnant and tugging couches around isn’t much fun!

  51. says

    It has direct suction and a HEPA inner bag (which we need because of allergies), and is the lightest vacuum in America because it has a magnesium frame. I feel like a commercial! And would I love to have one! Thanks for the chance.

  52. pdavis says

    Get in my house!! I need a new vacuum that would be easy for the kids to operate – this one would do the trick!
    : )

  53. Maureen says

    This vacuum received the Gold Seal of Approval from the Carpet and Rug Institue! It has a ton of great features, like a Easy Snap Cord as well. I can’t wait to win this! Thanks for the giveaway.

  54. Penny M says

    Oh my goodness I am so excited about this giveaway! I would love to win this vacuum! Love how it sucks up very close to the baseboards!!! Long cord—that is what I need!

  55. Ana says

    My vacuum is a hand me down that it’s on its last leg. I so need a new one!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  56. Ana says

    “Best of all, it lays virtually flat for easy cleaning under furniture.” This is perfect for my little helper!

  57. Dee in NH says

    Oh my! I have been dreaming of my very own Oreck!!! Thanks so much for a chance to win one of these beauties!

  58. Regina says

    It fits under furniture and cleans close to the baseboards.. count me in :) it seems everything gathers at the baseboards.

  59. says

    I’ve been needing a new vacuum, in fact, it’s on my Christmas list. This beauty that gets so close to edges and baseboards would be perfect! The fact that it does hard floors, too, is a great perk!

  60. Kendra L. says

    I vacuum like 5 times a week because I’m a little paranoid….I’m pretty sure our $60 vacuum from walmart isn’t doing the trick…Would love to win this!!

  61. says

    I’d love a vacuum that could go under my furniture! Not to mention one that would suck up all the dog hair in our carpets! Love this Oreck!

  62. Sherry@Ties2ThePast says

    Magnesium is the lightest, full-powered upright in America.
    I can’t believe it only weighs 8 lbs!!

  63. says

    Oh my…what a wonderful “give away”. I have heard there is NOTHING like an Oreck…I have always wanted one! Hopefully, someone very deserving will win it! Headed to tweet about your “give away”! :-)

  64. Jeannie says

    Oreck Magnesium is the lightest full powered vacuum in America that gentle enough for my Oriental rug.

  65. says

    Oh yea, Just went to the Oreck site and learned~Best of all, it lays virtually flat for easy cleaning under furniture. Now that is a major plus+++

  66. says

    Oh my goodness is this a blessing from heaven! I am getting married in 5 days and the one thing we really need is a vacuum! Neither of us have one so we will either have to fork out the dough to buy one or keep borrowing from friends! Having one that is small, powerful, and easy to use with furniture is HUGE, our house is itsy bitsy and we need all the bang we can get in a little package!

  67. Elizabeth H says

    Nice machine. Nice to know it is also gentle enough for fine rugs. Lightweight is a plus for sure.

  68. Janie says

    I have a Dyson now. Not impressed with it. Mom had an Oreck back when they first came out. When we had the auction and sold all Mom and Dad’s stuff, their housekeeper stood in front of the spot that the Oreck was going to sell from and didn’t move all day. Needless to say, she got the Oreck. I had no clue what I was letting go…
    I learned (and loved) from the website that the large high-performance rear wheels with cylindrical wheel bearings give the Magnesium maneuverability, making it easy to push through high-pile carpet.

  69. Leslie says

    Ohhhh the things a woman dreams of. This would be so great. Love it! Thanks for offering this to us for chance to win great stuff!

  70. Carla S. says

    I’ve been wanting one of these so badly ! I love that it’s light weight, lies flat, and gets the baseboard crumbs .

  71. says

    I learned that the Oreck vacuum comes with a 7-year limited warranty and 3 yearly tune-ups, that’s great! I’ve had my current vacuum for 14 years and it’s so past time for a new one! Thanks for the giveaway. :)

  72. says

    I learned that the Magnesium Vacuum has a two speed quickswitch, one for carpets and low for hardwoods and tile. I think that is awesome because we have an open floor plan which goes from carpet to tile back to carpet. This vacuum would be Ah-mazing :) Thanks for a chance at such a great giveaway!

  73. kesha says

  74. says

    Hi Stacy! This is a great giveaway!! On the Oreck website I learned that the Saniseal system automatically seals shut and locks the dirt in. I know, how crazy is it to get excited about a vacuum?? Love it! :)

  75. Jusa says

    Yep–that’s one sexy vacuum cleaner. Ummm, since it is my DH that usually does the vacuuming in our house (am I lucky, or what), I’m wondering if I should let him have this. Maybe he’ll only have eyes for the vacuum…..

  76. wendy says

    I teach preschool in my house. I could really use this vacuum. I read on the website how it moves easily from carpet to hardwood floors. That would make clean up so much quicker. Plus with it being light weight my oldest can help me when class is done. This would be great since I have a bad back! Crossing my fingers!

  77. sarah says

    I thought the gray line was you vacuuming under a glass table! Ha! How does it do on hard floors? (Counting this as my comment for refflecopter)

  78. Renee Richardson says

    I learned that it is gentle enough for fine Oriental and Persian rugs. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway :)

    fattybumpkins at yahoo dot com

  79. says

    Let’s see … lightweight and flick a switch & you can go from carpet to tile – Love that! Thanks for such a great opportunity – my current vacuum is definitely past its prime!

  80. Lindsay says

    Wouldn’t this be a dream? I didn’t know that Magnesium is the lightest, full-powered upright in America.
    Hope to win!!

  81. Kimberly says

    I learned that the Magnesium comes with 3 annual tune ups. That is genius! We have two dogs and a baby, so our vacuum gets pretty gunked up with Cheerios and fur. This sounds like the perfect amount of maintenance to keep it working like new.

  82. Anna says

    What an amazing giveaway. I love the inner hepa filter, saniseal bags and the fact that it lays flight. Nice work Oreck!

  83. Daiva says

    I learned that the large high-performance rear wheels with cylindrical wheel bearings give the Magnesium maneuverability

  84. says

    I like that it works equally well on carpet, tile and hardwod – all 3 surfaces I have on our main floor! Thanks for the chance!

  85. Natalie says

    I am in need of a new vacuum and would love to win this because it is so light and goes right under furniture. I also love the fact that it has the two speed Quickswitch! I am so excited for this chance! Thank you!!!

  86. Kathy says

    I like the Oreck vacuum’s versatility on different floor surfaces. A vacuum like this would make cleaning the floors a little more fun. :)

  87. Brenda says

    I love everything about Oreck ~ especially that they’re light enough for my kids to carry up the stairs!!

  88. Sarah says

    I too have a little one who gets crackers ALL over! I’m hoping that it does great work on dog hair too!

  89. Debbie says

    The two speed Quickswitch™ on the back of the vacuum enables you to move smoothly across all floor types . This is exaactly what I need to make it easier to vacuum from one room to anothe.

  90. shelly says

    this looks like an awesome vacuum! I like that it’s lightweight and easy to manuveur. the 7 year warranty sounds great too :).

  91. Teresa says

    I learned that you can try out any Oreck product risk-free for 30 days and if you don’t like it, Oreck will pay the return shipping.
