I heart vacuuming | Oreck giveaway

Posted on | April 16, 2012 | 529 Comments

this giveaway is now closed! the winner was Emily. thanks to everyone for entering!

i always have a really hard time starting off posts where i talk about something awesome that i am now completely borderline obsessed with (code orange). i’m always afraid that i’m going to sound like i’m selling something and it’s really hard to portray how much i like something without sounding really gung-ho and using lots of exclamation points!!! i feel especially silly when the thing i’m totally freaking out over is used to suck the dirt out of my carpets. but here we are.

and i am totally freaking out over this vaccum cleaner from Oreck.

the thing is, our vacuum prior to this glorious piece of machinery smelled and sounded like it was going to catch right the hell on fire every time we used it. i liked to imagine it was sucking up all the stuff, but the truth was it wasn’t. and we are dealing with a toddler, 2 dogs (one of whom sheds like a mofo) and a long haired cat. the dirt, it is dirty.

i was skeptical when i pulled the Oreck Magnesium out of the box – it’s really light and almost feels like a toy. but i was shocked to find that it worked – better than any vacuum i’ve ever owned. this is what happens when you buy the cheapest vacuum you can get instead of investing in a nice one. once you try a legit one you wonder how much nasty stuff your cheapie has been leaving behind (spoiler alert: a lot). truly, our carpets have never looked better after vacuuming, to the point where Scot and i both want to vacuum – it’s a sickness and i blame Oreck.

a few of my favorite features on the Mag (we’re on a nickname basis now): it’s so lightweight – we have stairs and carrying it up to do the second level is so easy now. it unfolds completely flat, perfect for under the bed (um, someday when there isn’t stuff under there?) and little tables, the couch, etc. also the cord is really long so i can do the entire floor with out having to switch outlets. glorious.

get in there.

the only thing i don’t love is it does use a bag. luckily you can buy them online and there is an Oreck store in the next town over from us. honestly the bag doesn’t even bother me that much after using the vacuum for a few weeks, because it works so well the trade off is fine (the one we had before was a canister that we had to empty and it was gross anyhow). another thing that could be a plus or a minus depending on what you prefer is that there are no attachments. but you can buy a package that includes this bad boy, which is awesome (or you could win them down there…just saying).

this little guy also uses a bag (cute little bag is cute) and has a bunch of attachments and a super crazy extended hose. i use this on the stairs, the couch and along the baseboards. it’s got a little shoulder strap so you can just shimmy around the house cleaning the crap out of it. best ever. bonus: long cord as well.

since Oreck is so awesome they want to give one reader of the Haps a chance to win this same get up that they gave me: a Magnesium with a little Ultimate Handheld on the side (a $599.99 value – hey-o!). a combo of cleaning glory that you will love, future winner.

there are a few ways to enter!

>> the first and mandatory entry is to head over to Oreck and comment here on one thing you learned about the Magnesium.

if you’d like some extra chances to win, here are some more. please leave a separate comment for each that you do:

o   Follow @oreck on Twitter.

o   Like Oreck on Facebook.

o   Sign up for Oreck’s email list by clicking on “Sign up for Email” in the top navigation bar and entering your email address.

that’s it! then of course you’re going to want to cross your fingers.

the giveaway winner must be a resident of the 48 contiguous states (argh, sorry!) and Oreck kindly provided me with these products. Oreck Corporation provided the prize for the sweepstakes but is not the sponsor of the sweepstakes.

entries will be accepted until thursday, april 26th at midnight PST. i’ll announce the winner the following day. good luck!

    My husband took the “good vacuum” in the divorce and I’ve been eying the Element.

    I checked out the Magnesium (even better than the one on my wish-list) and it’s only 7.7 lbs! That’s less than all the Easter candy I just bought 70% off.

    I’d LOVE to win this vac to give to my mother.. I live in a teeny tiny apartment and she’s an oreck lover who deserves it! At the orek website I found out this Magnesium oreck vacum only weighs 7.7 pounds.. thats less than some babies! It also has 102 mph of airflow to suck that dirt right up.

    Oh I so need this vacuum! My current vacuum is a piece of crap and it makes me want to hurl it across the room. Except I can’t because it is huge and heavy. Thus, I am pretty excited about how freaking lightweight this vacuum is. And the “direct suction” from the website would probably solve all my problems. LOVE. NEED.

    Wow! I need one of those after going through 3 vacuums because of all the dog hair.  And recently our Dyson sounds like it’s going to take off like a rocket into space.  I love that you said it’s really lightweight and feels almost like a toy.  I’m sure used to picking toys up with two little boys all over the place.  I also like how it unfolds completely flat so you can get under the couch and bed.  That’s nice! I’m following @oreck on Twitter and I liked them on facebook.  I also signed up for their e-mail list.  Maybe I can get some good coupons! Thanks for the review!! Good to know!!

    What I learned, just made me LOVE the Oreck!! “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.” And, having a hardwood floor on the lower level of my townhome and full-on carpeting upstairs, along with a bunch of area rugs means that this vac would rock!

    I am moving to a new home in a matter of weeks and I would LOVE to have this vacuum! We desperately need a new one, as our current hand-me-down Oreck is on its last leg (duct taped power cord? Check!). This little darling would make an awesome addition to our home, not to mention keep the floors clean for my almost-mobile 9-month-old little princess (while also helping to save our tiny budget)! I love that it is Oreck’s lightest upright ever, weighing in at only 7.7 pounds! Yay, because the baby that I have to carry WHILE vacuuming weighs much more than that! :)

    Fingers, Toes & Eyes crossed we win this bad mamajamma! Ours broke (sad face) & had to roll up the rugs in our 80+ yo hardwood floor home. The toddler & baby are none to thrilled about it. Even tho I too have gotten used to a bagless system, I was happy to learn that The Saniseal System automatically seals shut, which locks the dirt in the disposable bag. And that changing bags is quite effortless. Please Oh Please relieve me from having to sweep the entire house with a broom!

    I learned that it gets its name from its magnesium frame, and magnesium “is stronger than many types of steel”. I didn’t know that. The frame of my vacuum seems to be made of a plastic that is weaker than most types of paper. It would get an unceremonious adios if I were to win this puppy! Fingers crossed.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE vacuuming.  I just do.  My husband makes fun of me because currently our vacuum (which is dying) has two lights on it: green means the space is clean and red means the vacuum is still picking up dirt!  Anyways, I will stand there vacuuming an area on a rug until that little light turns green.  It makes me so happy when it does!  We have a toddler and a Rottweiler named Ruby.  Enough said.  I learned that the Oreck has so much power that it feels like it’s self propelled on most surfaces!  That sounds pretty awesome to me!
