A super vacuum giveaway for all the super women! {Contest now closed}

UPDATED: This contest is now closed. The randomly selected winner of the might Oreck and his sidekick hand held vac is commenter number 366 – Michelle Small!

Congrats, Michelle and thanks everyone else who entered.

We have a Cheerios problem at our house.

Also a dirt-tracked-in-from-the-muddy-backyard problem.

There’s a sandbox-sand problem on the deck and a hamster-shredded-bedding problem in the boys’ bedroom.

There’s a crushed-goldfish-cracker-problem that is especially bad around the high chair area.

And I’d rather not talk about the random half-chewed-bits-of-toilet-paper problem we currently have.

I kid you not when I say we’ve been through two vacuum cleaners in the last year. I’ve started to feel sorry for our appliances. I feel I need to apologize to the vacuum before I even take it out of the over crowded coat closet.  I hear it cry uncle right as I start it up. Poor baby.

Well, the fine folks at Oreck think they can change that. They sent over a vacuum cleaner that is supposed to be able to look the carpet of a “three-kids-under-six” house in the eye without blinking.

Boy has it been fun putting it to the test!

Things I love about the Oreck Magnesium {super hero} vacuum:

  • I get to give one away! Perfect timing for Mother’s Day Month!
  • It’s super pretty. I mean, like cobalt blue, makes your husband and boys ooh and ahh over it’s “corners like it’s on rails” curves, shiny chrome and sky blue pretty.
  • It’s easy peasy to snap together while your three kids are all trying to “help.”
  • It’s tall, yo. I’m 5.9 and no longer suffering from hunch-over-the-vacuum-handle-itis.
  • At the first sign of a sucked in curtain, super hero cape, or baby doll it stops sucking. Seriously, this has been my favorite factor because our last vacuum kept right on sucking till there were sparks. Not the good kind.
  • It’s light, light, light.
  • I can drive it with just one hand.
  • Did I mention how light it is? I vacuum much less resentfully or unwillingly these days because it’s so easy to whip that little pretty in and out of our coat closet where it lives.
  • It’s the exact same color as my husband’s running shoes.
  • It has LED headlights. My sons asked me to mention that this is their favorite feature.
  • It’s comfortable with carpets and carpetless floors. So I can follow the trail of crumbs from the dining room right into the kitchen no problem.
  • It glides wherever I want it to. Under the high chair, up against the wall line, around corners – it’s got moves.

Things I love less about it:

  • Dude, it’s one expensive vacuum {$500}. But having recently been through two cheapies I cannot get over the difference. Apparently I keep muttering to myself as I vacuum, “So this is why people spend money on vacuum cleaners.”
  • The high/low power button. I realize it’s supposed to be beneficial to have these different settings for wood vs carpet, but it means that when I hit the off button in a panic when the baby starts to cry or I suck up a favorite toy it doesn’t go off, it just switches to the lower setting. This is annoying. But then the Oreck and I make eye contact over another bowl of spilled Cheerios and all is forgiven.
  • The wrap around power cord. It’s long and that’s lovely. But is it just me who misses the days when vacuum cleaners came with a handy little button that made the cord retract and rewind all by themselves? I’d love one of those on my pretty Oreck.

But what helps make up for all of that? Oreck also sent me the sidekick that makes up this Cleaner Power Team. Yup, he’s called The Ultimate Handheld Vac and he’s my boys’ new best friend.

You wear him like a shoulder bag and suddenly everyone’s begging to do chores.

 They’re the cutest little pair. Sometimes I wink at them when I pass the coat closet. They make me want to crank up some old school Garth Brooks and get my vacuum on.

And one of you super women will be able to boogie down to some Oreck magic too.

Giveaway mandatory entry, in other words – do this first before anything else, yo: Visit Oreck.com and then tell us {by leaving a comment on this post} one thing you learned over there about the Magnesium.

Suffering from crushed-Cheerio-exhausted-vacuum-fatigue and want more ways to win this super hero vacuuming team? Here you go:

  • Follow @oreck on Twitter.
  • Like Oreck on Facebook.
  • Sign up for Oreck’s email list by clicking on “Sign up for Email” in the top navigation bar and entering your email address.
  • Tweet about the giveaway, mentioning @oreck with a link to this post, for example, “Did you hear that @thegypsymama is giving away a pair of @Oreck’s vacuum cleaning super heroes?” <—click to Tweet this

Then come on back here and leave a separate comment for each of these entries.

Best of luck to all of you. Because who doesn’t deserve a team of super cleaning heroes?

{Contest closes midnight EST this Friday April 20, 2012}


Disclosure: Oreck provided me with this beautiful vacuuming combo for free. But the opinions are all my happy own. This vacuuming duo will not stop the influx of inevitable crushed Cheerios, sand, mud, dog hair or hamster shedding into your home. But it will help you beat them. With style. And perhaps even dancing.

Giveaway winner must be a resident of the U.S. 48 contiguous states. Oreck Corporation provided the prize for the sweepstakes but is not the sponsor of the sweepstakes. And Oreck will be the ones shipping the vacuum to the lucky winner.


I think motherhood should come with a super hero cape and a cheerleader.
My {free} ebook The Cheerleader for Tired Moms might be the next best thing.
Enter your email address and it’s coming your way just before Mother’s Day!

    And what’d I learn? Well, just what you said – it’s a magnesium frame. They said that’s stronger than many types of steel. That’s good. Because my almost 3-year-old-tough-guy is c.r.a.z.y. about vacuums (he can spot ’em at 30 paces), and honestly, I kinda cringe whenever ours falls over (even though he’s relatively careful with it). So there’s that…and can you IMAGINE if I told him that the little-guy-vacuum was all for him? Nuts, that’s what. Way to go, Lisa Jo (hey, a rhyme). Thanks for your generosity. :)

    I learned the Magnesium vacuum weighs less than 8 lbs! Excellent! I have arthritis in my back (and no, I’m not even 40 yet! ahh!) so a lightweight vacuum would be beneficial :).

    I learned from the site: “7-year limited warranty with 3 annual tune-ups”. This is GREAT! Especially when you have an Oreck store near you! I’ve never had the pleasure of owning one of these vacuums, but with 2 rambunctious boys under 4 yo and a full time job, it will help tons!

    With a little one just starting to eat solid foods, two cats, and zero energy to “spring clean,” this would be a lifesaver!

    I learned that the Oreck Magnesium has 102 mph of airflow. Which means nothing to me. But it sounds impressive :D

  62. 62

    The price tag! Whoa – $599.99. To win this free would be extra lucky as our current vacuum is on the fritz.

    Learned that the only thing I wouldn’t like about the vacuum is that you have to buy bags for it. Other than that, it sounds amaaaaaaazing! I hate vacuuming so anything to make the process more enjoyable is a VERY GOOD thing.

  70. 70
  71. 71

    The website says it has a long lasting belt. Considering everytime I vacuum, I have to replace a belt this would be great! We need a new vacuum so bad!!

  72. 72

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

  73. 73

    It’s only 7.7 lbs!! Considering vacuuming is my LEAST favorite chore because of lugging the thing around, this would be a wonderful change!!

    I learned that I pretty much love it.
    Maneuverability, ease of changing the bag, and lightweight?
    *happy sigh*

  82. 82

    Long lasting Endurolife belt? That alone speaks volumes, no seriously, it does. We’ve gone through two belts in the last six months. I chalk that up to the fact that I live with the best fed vacuum in Mahaska county Iowa and we can’t help but wear these things out. A new bag at least once a month (if not more often) which means I have a basket under my sink with bags and belts for the vacuum in it.
    Oh, yeah, one word describes your review – jealous. Green around the gills, I’ve been dreaming of be a vacuum tester, I mean really, let my crew prove to you just how well (or not) this “wonder vacuum” works. Oh, such a charmed life!!
    You know you’re a MOM when the thought of winning a free vacuum starts your day (ahem week) is absolutely delightful!

(anything that helps prevent a sore back gets bonus points from me!)

    Lightest Oreck ever, and lightest full-powered upright in America! I just have carpeting upstairs and one big rug downstairs that my little one plays on to spare him from the wood floors. I typically am trying to lug my heavy vacuum up and down the stairs with one hand while I hold him in the other arm, since he doesn’t like to be put down these days. Thus, our floors do not get vacuumed as frequently as they should…

    I learned it has a 7-year warranty with tune-ups. That alone makes it worth it… if I could even {imagine} having $500 lying around. We have been through 9 vacuums in 8 years. That has to be some kind of record. I am kind to my vacuums, I swear, but there is always a plethora of kids around here, which means a plethora of dirt and microscopic Legos, Fruit Loops in the carpet, and stray paper clips/bobby pins that the vacuum discovers before I do, ultimately leading to its demise. Sigh. Oreck, take me away! {And thanks, lovely Lisa-Jo for hosting the giveaway and blessing your readers!}

    I learned that it works well on delicate rugs and high-pile carpet. The lightweight thing is a definite plus for me! I have a Kirby, and while it seems to get the job done, I don’t dare vacuum my rugs with it for fear they will be sucked up, it’s heavy, and there are so many attachments I can’t keep them straight!!

  180. 181

    I like how it flattens to get under furniture. I think the handheld would be much nicer for vacuuming stairs.

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway! I totally need to win this Lol.
    I learned that the Magnesium lays virtually flat! That is a must in any vacuum that I purchase. Especially for vacuuming in my studio where all the dust bunnies like to hang out and have tea on a daily basis. :/

    Can I even tell you how huge this would be for our not-so-little-circus? GARGANTUAN.

    I loved the diagram showing the difference between the airflow in a bagless vacuum and an Oreck. No wonder it’s so strong AND so light!

    (Do I hear potential Mother’s Day gift?) Two things I learned about the Magnesium is there are 3 annual tuneups and that it weighs 7.7 lbs, which would be so nice for my mom. She has trouble with the one we have now (too heavy) and she doesn’t have $ to get a new one….my brother and I saved up our allowance waaaaaay back when and bought this vacuum for her on Mother’s Day like 20 years ago! It needs to retire already. ;)

  389. 390

    I learned that the Magnesium weighs only 7.7 lbs and lies almost flat to clean under furniture.

    When visiting the site, I learned that Magnesium is named the Magnesium, because it’s made of magnesium. Seemingly obvious, I know, but I hadn’t made the connection before – haha!

    I learned that this new vacuum has 102 mph of airflow….that’s some power! I LOVE the bright blue color and the blue L.E.D. headlights. Our family would love this. I am excited to enter the giveaway! Here’s hoping, right?! ;) Oh, and I am also learning how many people follow Lisa Jo’s blog! I love how many women of faith there are out there who are willing to be genuine and real. Thank you to everyone who has written from their heart. Your truth has encouraged and inspired me as a mom and Christ follower! <3

    I learned that the vacuum lays virtually flat for cleaning under furniture. Would be great because I hate moving furniture all the time:)

    I have used an Oreck before and, yes, they are awesome. And yes, they are expensive. BUT, worth it? I look forward to hearing how long yours lasts! :) I appreciate that the Magnesium can be used on all floor types… Have you used it on both?

    The Oreck has a direct suction – reducing the length of airflow and filters… we have horrible luck with the vacuums we buy… I would LOVE this one!

  447. 448

    Okay – so I learned the little machine has a big sucker motor that’s located near the floor, where the DIRT is, so it sucks (in a good way) better and spins the roller super fast (and therefor, strong). And I like a strong sucker. I NEED a strong sucker. Four kids under six aren’t what you call, clean. Ahem.

    I learned that it is MORE expensive than the Dyson that my wife wants :) but perhaps sucks just as much (pun intended) since it says it has “direct suction”.

  454. 455

    I liked it on FB (but the picture of the lady vacuuming in the tiny dress gives me the creeps).

  455. 456

    I visited the Oreck website and was impressed that the upright and handheld had long cords (20 ft and 30 ft).

  470. 471

    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.
