Oreck Vacuum Cleaner Give Away!

Affiliate Link Disclosure B

Yes, you read that correctly–The Peaceful Mom is hosting an Oreck Vacuum Cleaner Give Away!

Our family has a long, miserable history with vacuum cleaners. Being on a budget, we naturally bought the cheapest vacuum cleaners we could find, but those usually broke within a year or lost their ability to actually suck up the dirt. As each vacuum died, we would purchase another cheap vacuum and repeat the cycle.

Finally two years ago we did some research and purchased a vacuum cleaner in the $130 range. We were happy with it, but again, it lost is suction power and started to emit a slight burning smell. The repairs on the vacuum would be more than the cost of a new one, but we didn’t have extra money to purchase a new vacuum cleaner.

Oreck to the rescue! A few weeks ago the Oreck company graciously sent me one of their new Oreck Magnesium vacuum cleaners to try. I really enjoyed using it, and I especially like three features of this vacuum:

 

It’s light weight.

When I received the package I assumed it would be heavy like my other vacuums, so I had my son bring it in. HELLO! This vacuum is SUPER light weight and therefore super easy to use.

 

It’s compact.

Not only is the Magnesium light weight, it’s compact enough to fit easily into our tiny hall closet. Even if you have a large closet, who wants the vacuum cleaner to take up unnecessary space?

 

It has an extra long cord.

I hate having to unplug and replug the vacuum every time I move to another room. With the Magnesium, problem solved. I can actually vacuum mulitple rooms without ever moving the plug.

 

In addition to these great features, the sporty design actually makes me want to vacuum, and believe me, that is quite the accomplishment! It works well on both our tile and our carpet and has amazing suction. It also lies flat so that you can vacuum under furniture without moving it.

The Magnesium vacuum is a bit pricey and I would consider it out of our budget range, but if you have the money and want a really good vacuum, I think you will like it.

 

Oreck also sent me their Ultimate Hand Vac to try. It’s also super lightweight and perfect for vacuuming out the car or cleaning under those sofa cushions (even if it’s only once a year! :) ).

 

 The Hand Vac comes with all of these attachments too!

    I really like that this vacuum is only 7 pounds. I was just thinking a couple days ago when I vacuumed that my next one would need to be really light!

  2. Mandy says

    I already subscribe to the newsletter and would love an Oreck vacuum cleaner! (sorry, I don’t “do” facebook or twitter)

    I love that the Magnesium can go almost flat!! With 2 furry friends it would be so helpful!

  5. Brittney Saffell says

    I would love to win. I already liked you on facebook, I also suscribed to the newsletter. I greatly have enjoyed reading your blog the past few weeks. It has inspired me to be a better steward with our budget. Thank you :)

  6. Rachel says

    I like that both the vacuum and handheld have long extension cords (30 ft/20 ft). I can envision it reaching out to clean my car with no problem! :) I would LOVE to win!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. Anne Shaw says

    visited oreck’s web site; how cool is it that you get 3 annual tune-ups? My son hates lugging our current vacuum up the stairs, so excited about the lightweight feature!

  8. says

    On the Oreck site, it said the magnesium has twin headlights… very cool, since my vaccuum does not, and I have 5 year old twins that drop things under furniture quite often! It would be nice to be able to see what I am trying to clean up!!

  9. karen b says

    I like the feature of how easy it is to switch from hard floors to carpets. Also gentle on rugs. Would love this vaccum since we have allergies in our house.

  10. Allison M. says

    Went to the website…3 yearly tune-ups. Who would have thought to get your vacuum “tuned up”? I have an Oreck now, about 5 years old. LOVE IT!

  11. Alicia says

    I went to Oreck.com and told them how I learned that the Magnesium is light-weight and has an extra-long cord.

  12. Alicia says

    I already “liked” the Peaceful Mom on Facebook, so I clicked the link and shared the giveaway.

  13. karen b says

    Thank you for sending the daily emails, have truly enjoyed reading & keeping up that way if I’m busy. Keep up the great work you are a blessing to me.

  14. says

    I like that the Oreck Magnesium is a powerful cleaning tool, but gentle enough for delicate Persian and Oriental rugs. We’re not that fancy, but it’s good to know that it wouldn’t tear up our older carpets that are a bit threadbare more than they already are!

  15. Nicole says

    loving the lightweight feature and the headlights. looking forward to trying it on the stairs.

  16. Tracy Barton Niles says

    •30 ft. cord- no more rippin the plug outta the wall to reach the corners!!!! woooo hooo! I dream of the Magnesium and Oreck is a rockin brand! thanks for referring me to the website!

  17. Liz V says

    Oh man I have had the same problems with vacuums. I would love to try this vacuum and give you a full report on it.

    Thanks oreck for the give a way

  18. Emilie says

    What are the 2 settings that it says on the website. Have you used them?

    My vaccum just had the wheels on the bottom break, yesterday and I am debating on what kind to buy. I have had this hoover for 15 or so years and although a lot of the attachments are broken it still worked okay, but not without the set of wheels on the bottom.

    I will look into these when our budget allows.

  19. Megan Jones says

    I read that the magnesium had headlights which would be useful for dark corners and closets. I also like te fact that it has such a long cord!

  20. Heather says

    I looked at the Oreck website. I had no idea they had a 7 YEAR warranty with tune ups. Wow

  21. Heather says

    I already get your email newsletter and I really enjoy it. I am encouraged when I watch or read your posts. Thank you for sharing such personal info.

  22. Heather says

    I forgot to mention that my vacuum is on its way out. We normally get the $50 one from WM and it lasts about a year.

  23. Bobbi says

    I love that it is self propelled! I have heard good things about Oreck. I am with you on vacuums though. The cheaper ones are just not worth it.

  24. Beverly says

    I learned that the Magnesium has a quick switch to go between floor types easily! This would be awesome.

  25. Kelly says

    I love that.it has an extra long cord. That means I will be able to do the living room and dining room without unplugging :)

  26. Lyn says

    I like the fact that it lays flat so you can easily get underneath furniture. Looks like a great vacuum. Thanks for opportunity.

  27. Heidi Lyn Burke says

    Just looking at the Oreck site and am intrigued by the idea of a 30 foot cord. I hate having to stop and find a different plug in in order to finish that last bit of hall way or living room, so a long cord is awesome.

  28. Heidi Lyn Burke says

    just liked Oreck on facebook (I’m hoping I’m understanding this right that I’m supposed to leave a separate comment for each thing I do).

  29. Christy George says

    The Magnesium is the lightest, full-powered upright in America and it’s even gentle enough for fine Oriental and Persian rugs. :)

  30. Christy George says

    Subscribed to your newsletter awhile back…that is how I found out about the contest :)

  31. jerilyn says

    I have a long history of killing vacuums. Yes, I am a vacuum killer, which is why I use my mom’s hand me downs.
    I like how it can vacuum under furniture- because I am lazy and prefer to not move my couch. :)

  32. says

    I learned that it lies flat so you don’t have to move furniture…that is very motivating for me, I hate moving furniture to clean under it.

  33. Meriel Dols says

    I like that it lays flat to get under furniture and the price is within reason considering the 7 year warranty!

  34. says

    I learned that it has a quick-switch…we could really use that here where half the downstairs is low carpet and the other is wood flooring. Being lightweight would mean it would be a lot easier for me to vaccum more often :)

  35. Gina Lane says

    I learned that the Magnesium is gentle enough to use on fine Oriental and Persian rugs.

    It looks amazing! Hope I win!!!

    • Frankie Lane says

      I love extra long cords. I clean offices at night and this makes it super easy to cover so much floor space.

  36. Erin Kuchar says

    I went on http://www.oreck.com and learned that , the large high-performance rear wheels with cylindrical wheel bearings give the Magnesium maneuverability, making it easy to push through high-pile carpet! Also, it has so much power that it feels self-propelled on most surfaces…awesome!

  37. hilary says

    I went to the Oreck website and found out it lies almost completely flat to get it under furniture, something I would love!

  38. Alycia M says

    What a great giveaway! :)
    I learned about the Quickswitch that lets you flow from carpet to tile flooring. I love that!

  39. Sara Carter says

    I love that the Magnesium has two power settings, one for carpet and one for hardwood!

  40. Amy A. says

    I love that it is only 7.7 lbs. Light enough for the kids to carry it up and down the stairs!

  41. Celeste Jones says

    I reviewed the Oreck website and liked the “dirty air system” feature that make the dirt particles smaller. And the amazing sounding suction…that always seems to be my problem too.

    • Jen says

      I love that it has a HEPA filter bag! With allergies myself and a new baby on the way, this is huge for us!

  42. bella01 says

    Just what I need, our Vacuum is way over due for vacuum heaven. I like that it’s light, we have just moved to a 2 story house, so it would be prefect.

  43. Sharla Davies says

    Would so love an Oreck. I used to clean new construction houses and I went through cheap vacuum like crazy. Would love one. I learned it is LIGHTWEIGHT!!!! I need that!

  44. Sarah Peal says

    I learned that Oreck is still making new vacuums!! and great looking ones at that! would love to have one!!

  45. Sharla Davies says

    I also learned that the Oreck breaks up the dirt into smaller pieces after it sucks it up!!! Would be so awesome to have the hand vac also! My kids would help me with the stairs more easily!!

  46. Susan Wadell says

    I learned that it has a 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. It’s even gentle enough for fine Oriental and Persian rugs.

    • Rebecca says

      I learned that the Magnesium vacuum is the lightest weight vacuum currently being made and can fold flat to vacuum underneath furniture without having to move it.

  47. Jessica Scott says

    I learned the Oreck is light weight, great for me, going up and down the stairs here!

  48. chrisa guzzo says

    The lightest, full-powered upright in America

    liked them on facebook too and i already liked you on fb that is why i submit this entry

  49. Amanda Y. says

    Visited the Oreck website and learned that the Magnesium is named after what it’s frame is made of. And that magnesium is stronger than steel! Very interesting, and I would LOVE to own it!

  50. Amanda Y. says

    I liked your Facebook page and shared the link! (although I didn’t want to have any more entries, because I want the odds to be in my favor!)

  51. Charlotte Raynor says

    I visited the Oreck website and was interested to learn that there is actually a 7 year warranty on this vacuum and that includes 3 annual tune ups. Can’t beat that!

  52. Nancy Unruh says

    I’ve had an Oreck for over 15 years and have only had to replace the belt. Like that the new one has 2 speeds.

    • Christine says

      I don’t want to win – I just wanted to say I’ve been where you are. :) My husband and I bought a new $100ish vacuum every two years of the first 6 years of our marriage. When the third one died not very long after we had a Kirby demonstration at our house I told him that we couldn’t afford to keep dropping that kind of money every two years on something that should last much longer. We scoured craigslist for a while and found a much older used Kirby model for $30. We’ve been using it for 4 years and other than my husband having to take it apart and unclog every so often and replacing the plug for about another $30 (or maybe it was $20 – I don’t remember exactly) it’s run great. I highly recommend a used good vacuum over a new so so vacuum.

    • Charlotte Raynor says

      I am already a subscriber to The Peaceful Mom Email Newsletter and love it!

  53. Kitzya says

    I LOVE that the Magnesium has the different levels for carpet and/or tile/hardwood…bring it on!! 😀

  54. Crystal L. says

    I learned about the Quickswitch dealio. That would be so nice! My current vaccuum cleaner requires a manual switch on the bottom of the vaccuum in order to change the level for floors. It’s a huge pain and doesn’t work half the time anyway!

  55. Julia Johnson says

    I checked out Oreck’s new Magnesium vacuum and learned that the bags are self-sealing with saniseal technology. I hate changing bags and canisters because the dirt and dust go everywhere! This is a great alternative!

  56. Ashley Owens says

    this vacuum sounds great… light weight and easy to maneuver means that the kids can help with vacuuming their bedroom. :)

  57. Kitzya says

    Just tweeted the following:
    The Peaceful Mom is giving away a Magnesium!!! @oreck Yes Please!!

    I learned that Oreck has other items other than vacuums. I have arthritis…i would love a lightweight vacuum.

  62. Julie says

    I didn’t know that the Oreck Magnesium had a straight-path intake – most vacuums have suction only on one side of the unit.

  63. Leslie says

    I know someone who had an Oreck years ago and they love it!! It is so lightweight and I like that you can use this one on any type of floor.
    I hope I win this, we have also had bad luck with vacuum cleaners and it’s really frustrating!!

  74. Megan smith says

    I went to oreck’s website and learned that the Magnesium actually has a magnesium frame! Who would have guessed? :)

  75. Deborah Auen says

  90. Emily says

    “cylindrical wheel bearings” – not sure what that means, but sounds pretty neat! I visited their website! I like how the floor level switch is on the back of the vacuum, not on the base. Saves my back a bit.

  91. Gwen DeLaune says

    I would love a new Oreck! I have one that is several years old. I found out on Oreck’s site that the Magnesium has 2 speeds, one for carpet and one for floor! Pretty cool!
    Thanks!

  110. says

    I have been dreaming about a new vacuum for a couple years…. mine does an okay job (but not great) and is hard to maneuver, which makes vacuuming impossible on my ‘weak days’… That’s why I’m excited about the possibility of the Magnesium with “cylindrical wheel bearings” that promise easy maneuverability!

  131. Jessica P says

    From the Oreck website I learned that the Magnesium has a easy snap cord (so if I win I will no longer be dealing with a cord that won’t stay put when I put my vacumm away).

  132. Jessica P says

    I had already liked you on facebook and I just shared your give away on my facebook page.

  133. Abigail French says

    I visited the Oreck website and learned that the Magnesium Vac has switches on the back that allow you to change floor surface type. Much better than the kind you have to turn way down at the base of the vaccuum cleaner.

  134. Julianna says

    I just serviced my clunker vacuum at an Oreck Store on Tues. April 24th. As I was paying, with 5 daycare kids in tow, the clerk said “Let me show you something.” He walked me over to the “Magnesium.” You see, my vacuum doesn’t work well on long carpet…wish someone would have told me that sooner. Oh how the high performance wheels, direct suction and rotating rollerbrush on the Magnesium would work wonders on my high-pile, high traffic carpet. Later that afternoon I read this post…it was not coincidence…it destiny! Thank you for this chance to win a NEW vacuum!

  135. Amy says

    I like that it lays “virtually flat” for vacuuming under furniture. I find that to be a pain with some vacuums. I’ve heard good things about Oreck. Thanks so much for this giveaway!

  136. Amanda Valenti says

    I learned that it only weighs 7.7 pounds! Easy on the arms! lol

    Thank you so much!
    Amanda V.

  137. Amanda Valenti says

    I LIKE the peaceful mom on Facebook and I shared on Facebook as Manda Valenti!

    Thank you so much!

  138. tara says

    I like the whole “direct suction.” When cleaning the suction path on my latest vaccuum in hopes that it would work better I thought the path was a little long and didn’t make sense, so I like the idea of that feature.

  139. Christina Speth says

    I visited the Oreck website and read about the Magnesium. I learned (and love) that it has a quick switch which will allow you to easily go from hard surfaces to carpets!

  140. paige says

    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.

  141. Amber P says

    I learned on Oreck’s website that the Magnesium has a two speed Quickswitch on the back to allow you to easily switch to different types of floors! Which is a plus in my house!

  142. Lisa says

    I learned from Oreck.com that the Magnesium frame is stronger than many types of steel. Looks like a really great vacuum and I’ve been through quite a few cheap ones myself.

  143. Karen says

    I learned the large high-performance rear wheels with cylindrical wheel bearings makes it easy to push through high-pile carpet.

  144. says

    I can’t do the other entries because I already like you on Facebook and get your newsletter. How about pinning your site again on pinterest? Too bad there’s not a “love this” button for Facebook!

  145. Susan says

    I visited the Oreck site and learned that the Magnesium has a long-lasting Endurolife™ Belt. Sounds great!

  146. Sarah says

    I went to the website and learned that the price is, in fact, incredibly high… just as you said. Wow!

  147. says

    I love that it is flat – perhaps my furniture will survive my four children doing their chores. They seem to love banging into the couch, etc. Also love that it’s only 7.7 lbs!!

  148. Laurie Pettay says

    I have liked and shared with everyone I can think of! This is my dream vacuum and I never enter contests, but for this, I’ll break that rule! Come on Oreck!!!

  149. Taylor says

    I liked the fact that it lies flat, enabling it to go under furniture, so that I do not have to buy more furniture mover discs to be able to shove furniture out of the way, as I have to with my current vacuum.

  150. Bonnie T. says

    I learned that it is on 7.7 lbs. My back is sighing in relief just thinking about that!

    • Melissa says

      I visited oreck.com and learned that the Magnesium’s frame is made of, well, magnesium! It also has twin LED headlights and is very expensive. I love the way it looks!

  151. Laura says

    I LOVE that it is so powerful but so light weight! And a 2nd hand vac comes with it? What’s not to love about that!? :-)

  152. Amanda says

    The two speed Quickswitch would be SO nice for moving straight from carpet to hardwood!

  153. Lanee Marshall says

    Love Orecks. My mom had a cleaning business when I was growing up and thats all she used. I had one up until a couple years ago the. My dog chewed the cord and haven’t been able to get a new one :(

  154. Mary F says

    I learned it transitions between floor types easily and lays flat for vacuuming under furniture.

  155. Kayla H says

    The two speed Quickswitch feature looks great, especially since I have hardwood floors and an area rug, and soon to be carpet in one bedroom. Thanks so much for offering this giveaway!

  156. Kimberly Green says

    Two speed quickswitch allows for easy setting to go from one floor type to the other.

  157. Kimberly Green says

    Subscribed to the newsletter. I just wanted to say I love oreck. I have a very old one that is held together with duct tape and the cord has been black tapped and it still works amazing. I have RA and it is so light weight that I can vacuum without worry about the pain in my hands and back. Hubby has tried to buy me one of those walmart jobs but I refuse. If my oreck quits I am in trouble. lol So for all those out there who have not tried an Oreck you must. Mine came from a yard sale years ago (what were they thinking huh) and its held together with love.

  158. Kimberly Green says

    I already like The Peaceful Mom on fb. Shoot wont let me do it again. But I am huge huge fan. :)

  159. Kimberly Green says

    I think I shared on twitter. It was my first time on twitter. We will see, but if didn’t do right then four entries will have to do. Check

  160. Michelle H. says

    I learned that The Magnesium has a direct suction system and the direct suction and rollerbrush rotating at 7,000 revolutions per minute draws dirt right into the bag

  161. Susie Marshall says

    I would love to have a decent vacuum for my family of 6! I love the fact that it comes with a 7 year warranty and 3 tune ups. I also want to say that I am so happy I have found your blog!

  162. sandra says

    102 mph of airflow delivers powerful cleaning! WOW, I can imagine how clean my rugs would be!!

  163. sandra says

    Improved Saniseal bag disposal system, I can really dig this one. I hate those yucky bags!!

  164. KRISTINE RUMZIS says

    Went to the Oreck site and love that this vacuum can lay almost flat to clean under furniture!!

  165. says

    I would love to win this! My vc is on its last legs. What drew me in, besides the fact that it is a great looking machine is the description says the vc is flat and will fit under furniture. My old one does not, and it would be great to not have to move everything all of the time.

  166. Linda Reeser says

    I owned an Oreck back in the 70s – it was the best vacuum cleaner I ever owned. I just reviewed the Magnesium on the Oreck web site and am impressed. The new improved Saniseal disposal system particularly interests me as I have allergies.
    I hope I win. If I don’t, I will still replace my almost useless name brand vac with one of the Orecks.

  167. Kelli Symer says

    I visited Oreck and here is what I learned:
    The Oreck Magnesium has received the Gold Seal of Approval from the Carpet and Rug Institute

  168. Amanda Cox says

    I love that this vacuum includes a HEPA filter! Clean air is very important to my family!

  169. Stephanie Ostler says

    I’m like you, been through a lot of cheap machines. Do the warranty and tune up opportunity is music to this mamma’s ears! Also, the chance to own a new vacuum is amazing! Our family of 4 is full time RV’ers (small rv) in efforts to become debt free! What a great blessing this would be.

  170. Heather Barthelme says

    I looked at the steam mops. Oreck steam products create “dry” steam, a high-temperature, low-moisture steam vapor.
    Far superior to the mop bucket, in my opinion! :)

  171. Erica says

    Like the hepa filter and the Saniseal system. Need it in our house with all our allergies!

  172. sandra says

    I liked the Peaceful Mom on facebook!! And I really like the 7.7lbs of the Oreck Magnesium vacum

  173. sandra says

    I don’t have twitter but if I did I would follow the peaceful mom and give a tweet about the Oreck vacum contest!! I also like the High performance motor spins pile-lifting rollerbrush at approximately 7,000 RPM, that will really get the farm dirt out of my carpet!! Especially when my husband won’t take his shoes off!

  174. sandra says

    I am subscribed to the Peaceful mom newsletter. Also the Oreck vacum will look great in my small hall closet, especially now that I know it is the Lightest Oreck upright ever!!

  175. sandra says

    liked oreck on fb, sure hope I can win this vacum!! I like the features like the magnesium frame is stronger than steel!! Even the kids can’t wreck this one!!

  176. Amber says

    I love the (almost) lay flat feature of the vacuum. One of my biggest issues is getting under furniture, I’m constantly moving large pieces of furniture to clean. I also shared this give away on facebook.

  177. Kristen says

    I think the quickswitch is a great idea! So much more effecient going from hardwood to carpet.

    I liked Peaceful Mom on facebook, subscribed to the newsletter, and visited the Oreck website.

    Thanks!

    • says

      Kristen-you can leave one comment for each action (for example: one comment for “liked on Facebook” and a separate comment for “subscribed”). That way you get more entries! :)

  178. Kristen says

    Went to the Oreck site and love how the magnesium has the “quick switch” to move from floor to carpet.

  179. joyce satcher says

    Love that it lies almost flat & the heppa filter!!! would love this vacuum!!!!!

  180. Jenn says

    Not specifically about the Magnesium (though it is awesome) – but I LOVE that they are donating to Susan G Koman for every Facebook like… Go “like” them!

  181. Jenn says

    I do love that the Magnesium has a “Quickswitch” for changing between floor types – my current (ancient, on it’s last legs) vacuum I have to turn off, wait for the motor to stop, then change the pile height before I can switch from carpet to different carpet or hardwood.

  182. Jenn says

    AND, they will donate another $.50 to Susan G Koman when you sign up for their newsletter… done!

  183. Julie Miller says

    I want the Magnesium’s extra long cord. I hate having to plug and unplug 3-4 different times. And I like the quick switch to go from floor to carpet.

  184. Julie Miller says

    I liked Oreck on Facebook. Already subscribe to your newsletter and follow on Facebook.

    • Janna says

      I love that it has cylindrical wheel bearing for easy manueverability! My bad back would love this and the fact it is their lightest vacuum yet–7.7 lbs!

  185. Dineen says

    I visited Oreck and learned about Magnesium’s large wheels that make for great maneuverability. I like that and the HEPA liner bags that are important for those of us with allergies.

  186. Tracie S. says

    What I learned about the Magnesium at the Oreck site:

    Best of all, it lays virtually flat for easy cleaning under furniture.

  187. Liz Maestas says

    I went to the Oreck website and learned that the Oreck lays flat to get under furniture. Love that feature.

  188. Tara C. says

    I visited oreck.com and learned the the Magnesium only weighs 7.7 lbs making it the lightest upright vacuum in the U S.

  189. Anna G says

    102 mph wind force should clean great..hopefully it will keep up with the kids and husband with this sand and red dirt.

    • Dana says

      I visited oreck.com and learned that the Oreck Magnesium has a switch on the back that changes speeds for hard floor/carpet.

  190. Catie Myers says

    I am excited about the 7-year limited warranty with 3 annual tune-ups and the 30′ cord!! WOOHOO!!!

    • Catie Myers says

      I forgot to mention that I learned this information about the Magnesium by visiting Oreck.com! =)

      • Sherri H says

        I visited the Oreck site and read about the Magnesium vacuum… I learned that it has an installed HEPA filter (along with a lot of other cool features!) What’s not to love?

  191. Kayla says

    Went to the Oreck website and learned the the Magnesium can virutally lay flat to reach dirt and dust hiding underneath furniture. I would LOVE this feature!

  192. Kayla says

    Shared about the giveaway on Facebook. I would love to own a quality vacuum cleaner, and I don’t have the extra money to purchase one right now. :)

  193. Michelle Barnhart says

    I liked Oreck on FB. Also, I like that the Magnesium is lightweight (about 7.7 lbs.) and powerful! I would love to win one!

  194. Catie Myers says

    I already “like” the Peaceful Mom on facebook and now I have shared a link for this Oreck giveaway on my fb wall!!

  195. Catie Myers says

    I am following @thepeacefulmom on twitter and I just shared a link to this giveaway and mentioned @thepeacefulmom and @oreck in the tweet!!

  196. Debbie says

    I like the 30 day risk-free trial that Orek Offers on all of their vacuums. What do you have to lose?

    • Crissteen Czech says

      Something light weight would be perfect to use while carrying a baby in one arm, and the extra long cord would definitely come in handy… Hope I win!! My vacuum is crap & I can’t afford anything this nice with 4 kids. :)

  197. Misty S says

    Mandatory Entry :)
    I learned that it has ” so much power it feels like it’s self-propelled on most surfaces. 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”

    I think the power part is great cause I hate feeling like i’m forcing a vacuum to work and I love that it works on tile, we live in military housing and sweeping drives me crazy lol but I have only found really junky tile floor vacuums :(

    Thanks

  198. Pam says

    By going to Oreck.com I learned that the Magnesium has two speed settings. I boy, would I love to have one!

    • christy sanders says

      i visited oreck.com and learned that the magnesium lays virtually flat so you can vacuum under furniture…….awesome feature!!!

  199. christy sanders says

    followed thepeacefulmom on twitter and sent a tweet about oreck adn the giveaway

  200. pam says

    Its powerful with two speeds, light weight so easy to handle, and will lay flat to get under furniture easier.

  201. Amanda Long says

    I learned that the Magnesium has two speed settings and works great for carpets and hardwood. Which is great since I have a lot of hardwood. Would sooooo love this.

  202. Sarah A says

    Went to Oreck website and learned that the Magnesium is lightweight but extremely strong, and so powerful that you feel like it is self-propelled. How fun is that! Love the chance to win one – thanks!

  203. Mary Abercrombie says

    I went to the Oreck website and learned lots of things to make me want a Magnesium! Most important was the 2-speed Quickswitch that allows you to go from carpet to hardwood floors without stopping. Since this would be useful in just about every room in my house, it would be a lifesaver.

  204. Jacqueline Alderman says

    Posted on Oreck.com: The 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 :)

  205. Vicki says

    Hi their, I learned it’s light weight, compact and has 2 settings. I had 2 older sweepers, both which have broke :( I’ll be moving into a different place in the next 6 weeks with limited closet space. The compact would be awesome, just having a sweeper would be awesome. I “like” you on fb. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

  206. Betsy W. says

    Visited Oreck.com and love the Quickswitch feature to go to different type of flooring!

    • Jennifer says

      I learned the Magnesium vacuum enables you to move smoothly across all floor types using appropriate power levels: high for carpets and low for hardwoods and tile.

  207. Joann says

    I learned that it can lay almost flat. I would love a vacuum that laid flat to go under things.

  208. Christy G says

    Visited Oreck site. Love the magnesium frame. The frame on the older models was perhaps the weakest feature of the Oreck!
