The Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Giveaway: Because Photoshop Can’t Clean Your Carpets in Real Life

Oreck Magnesium

[Entries are now closed for this giveaway. The winner is comment #20, Elizabeth Johnson.]

I try to be as transparent as possible, but admittedly things on my blog don’t always look the same as they do in reality . . .

Oreck Magnesium vacuum cleaner

Yep, sometimes I perform the Photoshop equivalent of dusting and vacuuming my home for blog photos. Unfortunately, Photoshop won’t clean my house in real life.

The good news is that I like to vacuum.

Even better news is that now my kids want to, too, thanks to our new Oreck Magnesium vacuum cleaner and Ultimate Handheld Vac.

Oreck Magnesium vacuum cleaner

Oreck Magnesium I knew the Magnesium and I would get along just fine when I watched the video on their website (the arrow in the picture will show you where to find it). My favorite part is when they drop the vacuum cleaner down a flight of stairs. They’d be crazy to include that if it wasn’t tough, right?

At first I was surprised by how simple the Magnesium is: no pull-out hose and no attachments. I thought I would really miss those things until I remembered that the hose on my old vacuum cleaner hasn’t worked for months and the attachments are all broken or lost.

I like having the Ultimate Handheld Vac as a separate unit. When we’re in frantic, somebody’s-coming-over power-cleaning mode—which is how most of ours occurs—one person can vacuum while another uses the handheld vac to clean stairs or baseboards or blinds or those AC intake vents that always look dirty.

My eight-year-old daughter is responsible for cleaning the stairs going up to her room, but she’s never been able to vacuum them. Now she does it easily using the handheld vac with its shoulder strap.

There’s a lot to love about the Oreck Magnesium:

  • It’s lightweight—only about 7 1/2 pounds.
  • The cord is long enough to stretch across the whole room.
  • It feels self-propelled.
  • It has a high setting for carpet and a low setting for hardwood or tile.
  • It can lay almost flat to slide under furniture.
  • I was able to assemble it by myself!

The Magnesium has a hefty pricetag—$500—but feels built to last. We’ve used a bagless vacuum cleaner for the past few years and I felt smart saving that extra expense, although it seemed like a decent amount of dust escaped again when I emptied the canister. I was afraid that the Magnesium bags would fill up instantaneously, but we’re still on the originals. I need to find out where to get replacement bags.

One of you will win both an Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Cleaner and the Ultimate Handheld Vac, a combined retail value of $600!

i visit the oreck site, and learned all about the vacuum, what stood out to me most is that it can virtually lay down flat while you are trying to vacuum under low spaces. I also like that is has the twospeed quickswitch that allows for smooth transition between surfaces, for example bare floors or high pile carpets.

This really is an incredible giveaway! I sooo need a new vacuum! I can hardly carry mine upstairs and often just wait for my husband to carry it up for me. On top of that, my children are all terrified of our present vacuum because it’s so loud! Seriously – even my 10 yr old! So I don’t have them helping me, but with this one, I’ll bet they would love to vacuum. :) We’ll see.

“Easy Snap Cord”
The new ‘Easy Snap’ cord clip is the smart way to keep the cord where you need it … not where you don’t.

I learned that it has a magnesium frame, hence the name, and that it is stronger than many types of steel. My vacuum couldn’t withstand a tumble down the stairs. It can barely withstand me changing the bag. :)

This has GOT to be my lucky one! I am still stalking you Oreck!! :)

I have learned many things- besides the fact that they are elusive in my contest persuit, I know that you can switch from different floor types with the flip of a switch. It’s lightweight which will save my aching back (I vacuum 2 times a day. 3 boys + 2 labs = constant carpet lines), and has a long cord so that I can go from living room to playroom to dining room. My oh my wouldn’t that make for a nice review Oreck?? haha.

I learned that the Magnesium uses a HEPA inner bag. As air passes through the HEPA inner bag, it captures at least 99.97% of particles.

This little vacuum sounds like my dream cleaner!!! First of all, it goes to almost a flat position to get under stuff nicely – AWESOME. Second, it has the automatic snap shut for changing bag, that’s amazing – no more dirt flying all over the place. Third, it’s light weight, has a snap cord, the attachment for above the floor cleaning is a complete delight….. can you tell I LOVE to vacuum!!??? CRAZY lady here I know!!!

The frame is made of magnesium. While it is lightweight, it is almost stronger than steel.
