About my Oreck Magnesium RS, oh… and how about a GIVEAWAY?!!!

Update: Giveaway is now closed!

You read that right – ORECK and GIVEAWAY in the SAME SENTENCE!

I was recently sent an Oreck Magnesium RS and the Oreck Ultimate Handheld vacuum cleaner to check out… AND TO GIVE  AWAY.

I am pretty sure whoever wins their own little duo will be a pretty happy camper winner!

I have a lot of love for my Magnesium RS… Not only is she light (7.7 pounds!):

But she can be used on my wood floors… MULTI-SURFACE FTW!

For carpet and wood and tile... via @jennyonthespot
It is flexible:

And has a little brush do-hickey on the side which helps get all the dirt/fuzz/dog hair that gathers at the base boards:

And she SUCKS.

And when one says a vacuum cleaner SUCKS… it is a COMPLIMENT.

This extremely light and nimble unit is powerful.

I absolutely love it.

As does my daughter. WHICH IS PRETTY HANDY!

The only con is having to replace the bag. I have another vacuum that is bagless, and I do really like that feature. However, the vacuum is terribly bulky, weighs about 1800 pounds (give or take), and the suction is not nearly as impressive. If I had to make a purchasing decision… I’d choose the Magnesium RS.

I mean look… even the littlest of my spawn can haul the vacuum upstairs:

Aaaaand she can do the vacuuming herself! Which she’s thrilled to do. Now. But check back with me in 2 years *wink*.

I don’t want to neglect mentioning the Ultimate Handheld unit either! I think a picture is worth a thousand words:

That’s my husband. Way high up on the plant shelf (I’m not a fan of heights)… the long cord makes vacuuming super hard-to-get-to places vacuum-able! The handheld vac comes with a number of attachments and a strap that keeps the unit close and manageable. Hooray!

But how about the giveaway? You ready? You have up to 3 entry methods, the first is mandatory. Follow the prompts in the Rafflecopter widget below (contest ends midnight Dec. 26, 2012, PST:

  3. kakaty says:

    I have an older Oreck and love it. I like how the HEPA bags capture at least 99.97% of particles – there really IS less dust in my house because of it. I would love to upgrade to the Magnesium RS!

  4. laura m. says:

    The vacuum is furniture-friendly and has wireless two-speed QuickSwitch.

    Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  5. Heather says:

    This looks lovely! I have stairs now that must be vacuumed which currently requires crawling with a plug in hand held. Looks like this guy could do the job! Never thought I’d be so excited at the chance to win a vacuum!!!!

  6. Heather says:

    Where does one leave feedback on oreck.com? I went, I wandered, I did not find. :/

  7. I like the easy snap cord feature. Thanks for the chance!

    It folds down so flat it’ll reach under my bed!

    Looks pretty light, I like that!!

  16. Malia says:

    Yay I can comment now and fulfill my requirement! Thanks, Jenny 🙂

    I learned that the Oreck has special wheels that allow it to adjust to whatever flooring you’re vacuuming with the need to stop and adjust the height. Love that!

  18. Jo says:

    I also like Oreck on facebook! Thanks for the chance to win Jenny!! 😉

  19. I like the “furniture friendly design” with the swivel action. Often I’m too lazy to move all the chair to vacuum, it’d be nice to have a vacuum that would do more work, while I do less work.
    Thanks for a chance to win!

  23. Michelle Jagow says:

    I visited the Oreck website and checked out the magnesium rs…I love that it works on all surfaces and I don’t have to stop to manually adjust it. The weight and swivel design is pretty nice too. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.
