The NEW and FABULOUS Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Review and Giveaway!!!

**************This Giveaway is now CLOSED***************

Congratulations to Comment #329 Heather H.!!!  I will be emailing you with directions for claiming your prize!!

Yes you read that title right!!  One of you will win an Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Cleaner valued at $499.99!!  I am so excited to tell you all about this beauty!


Introducing the lightest, full-powered upright in America.With its extremely strong, durable magnesium frame, the Magnesium™ packs all the power you expect from an Oreck vacuum — 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. It's even gentle enough for fine Oriental and Persian rugs. Additionally, the large high-performance rear wheels with cylindrical wheel bearings give the Magnesium maneuverability, making it easy to push through high-pile carpet. Best of all, it lays virtually flat for easy cleaning under furniture.

You can only imagine my excitement when Oreck contacted me to try out their new vacuum cleaner.   What mom isn't always on the hunt for the PERFECT vacuum??  I had been searching for years to no avail.  I just knew that this Oreck Magnesium might be my answer.  Sure enough, it is!  This vacuum is durable and easily goes from carpet to tile to throw rug and back to carpet again with no trouble. (You don't even have to stop the vacuum because your throw rug got sucked up in the bottom *ahem).  It goes from surface to surface with ease and sucks up everything along the way.  Not only that but... get ready for this... vacuuming stairs is so easy!!!  At 7 lbs. the Magnesium makes vacuuming those dreaded stairs a cinch!

The first picture below shows me vacuuming on a throw rug, and the second picture shows how the Magnesium lays completely flat as I vacuum under the coffee table.

Now all of this is lovely and definitely is enough for me to call this my #1 vacuum, but there is one thing that sold me 110% on this.  I didn't even expect this or even think of it.  The story goes... I was out of town speaking at the MomHeart conference.  When I returned home I noticed the vacuum was upstairs.  I asked my husband if he had vacuumed upstairs.  His response, "No the kids vacuumed their rooms.  It is great because they just carried the vacuum up and swept their rooms all by themselves." {gasp and light bulb moment}  My 9 year old, 7 year old, and 5 year old can all pick up this vacuum, because it is only 7 lbs and carry it up the stairs!  Not only that, it is so easy to control while vacuuming because it is lightweight, so my 5 year old can now vacuum all by himself!  How many times have I had to stop in the middle of doing something to lug the heavy vacuum up the stairs to my child's room for him/her to vacuum?!?!?  This my fellow mommies is the #1 reason I LOVE this vacuum!  It has all of the great things I listed above, plus whether you are holding a baby in one arm and vacuuming with the other, or it is time for your 5 year old to clean up his or her room, the Magnesium makes it so simple!


I am so thrilled to offer one of my readers the chance to win the Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Cleaner!  The entry options will be listed below, but there are two that you MUST do to be entered.  Since this giveaway is exclusively for The Better Mom readers and community you must subscribe to our email updates to enter, and you must Visit and tell us one thing you learned about the Magnesium.
