oreck magnesium review and giveaway!

i would like to introduce you to the newest member of our family! our beloved new oreck vacuum cleaner and i promise you he has his work cut out for him in this family of five, almost six and a pesky cat.
right away i noticed how lightweight and powerful this vacuum was! weighing in at only eight pounds, about half the weight of your standard upright vacuum (hear that dyson?), this guy is so easy to maneuver around furniture and busy children. i wondered how i would make due with out any tool attachments but as it turns out, the magnesium's light weight, plus extra long cord and slimmer design, i had no problem lifting him up on my couch and vacuuming it like it was another part of the carpet! same with my numerous stairs to tackle, the magnesium fit perfectly on the width of my stairs and i was able to lift it up easily to each one giving them the best vacuuming of their existence!
believe the rumors you hear! you turn on the oreck magnesium and let go, he will take off and vacuum your living room on his own, ok maybe not, but with it's self propelling power, gliding him across any of your floors is that much easier! it is no wonder with it's 102 mph of air flow!
check out that amazing carpet pattern! my husbands favorite part, ha!

the oreck magnesium features two power options - high for your normal everyday carpet, and my favorite, the low, perfect for my beloved floral rug that goes under our couch and requires a gentler touch. i thought i would not love the fact it wasn't a bag less vacuum, but i in fact had the opposite reaction - i could tell right away the difference and with the help of its trusty hepa filtered bag my allergies are getting the extra support they need by having all of that pesky pollen, dust, and cat dander trapped inside and i don't even have to deal with the dust cloud that ensues when i empty my old bag less vac.
finally my personal favorite part of this bad boy - it's furniture friendly design! it's low profile fits better under the small space of my couch and folds all the way to the floor so that i can now finally reach those annoying dust bunnies under all of our beds! this pregnant lady just can't lift them up to move anymore.

over all i am so satisfied with the oreck magnesium! it took some time to get to know it after years of heavy bag less vacuums, but i think after a few weeks of time with my new oreck i am totally in love. it is easy to use, easy to store, and practically vacuums on its own. the kids even get excited about vacuuming with the new lighter "space ship" vacuum, they call it. they even fight over who's turn it is to vacuum. is it mean i usually tell them it is mine? ha!

i was given the oreck magnesium free, to review from oreck, however all opinions in this post are my own. oreck corporation provided the prize for the sweepstakes but is not the sponsor of the sweepstakes.

now, the best part - oreck wants to give one of my readers this exact same vacuum to fall in love with! this prize is valued at $499, are you excited?

details: winner must be a resident of the forty-eight contiguous states and must participate in the bold,  mandatory entry option. the other options are there for fun and more chances to win! the giveaway will run for two weeks at which point i will announce the winner at the top of daily post as well as contact them. winner, you have seventy-two hours to respond, otherwise at that time i will announce a new winner. so, have fun and tell your friends!

Oh yay!  After seeing this on soo many blogs I would probably freak if I won this.  My kids already fight me to vacuum, I can't even having a super light maneuverable one that they could actually do the job with.

I had an Oreck growing up and loved it for many reasons, one of which being how light it is, which I see this one is too.  Thanks for a super giveaway!

melissa rohr said...

especially love that you can make it lay flat!

SO cool, our vacuum sprays dust/dirt everywhere, so yes, I definitely need a new one!! Plus with three floors to haul it up/down, lightweight would be awesome.

Thanks for the contest!

melissa rohr said...

i have had my current vacuum for many many years now and a hair tie is literally holding it together right now. i have been admiring this vacuum all over other blogs and would love to have one. i love that it is lightweight for my kids who often enjoy helping me do the household chores. 

melissa rohr said...

I love that it's super lightweight and can get under furniture so easily! I NEED THIS! 

melissa rohr said...

I like that it is only 7.7 lbs! My vacuum has bit the dust so I really need a new one!

Not So Newlyweds said...

Love this giveaway!! I'm excited that its so lightweight because mine is so heavy to drag up and down the steps!

melissa rohr said...

Love how it can virtually lay down to get under furniture!

melissa rohr said...

I love that 's so light and it lies almost flat. I could actually get under the furniture for a change, haha. 

Elizabeth said...

I learned that I can use it on my hardwoods and tile too! Yay!!

melissa rohr said...

I have 2 Oriental rugs and love that is would be easy to use on them and not wear them

melissa rohr said...

I learned it's their lightest upright ever.

melissa rohr said...

I love how light it is, it would make vacuuming the stairs so much easier!

melissa rohr said...

My favorite thing I learned is that it lays virtually flat. I wish I could vacuum under the beds with the crappy vacuum I have now. :(

melissa rohr said...

I like that it comes with a long warranty!
It looks so light. I love that too:)

I learned the Oreck Magnesium has a Long-lasting Endurolife™ Belt. I like that because I hate changing the vacuum cleaner belt. On my current vacuum, it is not easy and it never seems to fit right.

I am excited about the hardwood feature!

melissa rohr said...

It has a quick switch for carpet and hardwood floors on the back

melissa rohr said...

It has a frame made out of magnesium, which is stronger than certain kinds of steel. Impressive!

melissa rohr said...

I love that it's light weight approx. 7 lbs.

melissa rohr said...

I love that I can flatten it and fit it under furniture.

melissa rohr said...

I love that it includes 3 annual tune ups. I don't like how vacuums typically work for a few months and then get too gunked up to do a good job. This sounds perfect to keep it performing like new!
