Oreck Forever™ Series Gold Vacuum Giveaway {and Vlog}

September 19, 2011

Oh friends.

I can barely contain my excitement. You know how much I love to vacuum?

Well, so will you. One of you is going to win a brand new, right from the factory Oreck Forever™ Series Gold Vacuum valued at $499.


A few weeks ago, I tweeted that my old vacuum had finally died. Being that I used it every day for 4 years I’m surprised the thing lasted as long as it did.

For the reals. I am a vacuum addict.

When Oreck asked if I wanted to do a review and giveaway of their new Forever™ Series Gold vacuum, I wondered if they understood the magnitude of what they had just asked. It was like winning the Ultimate Housewife lottery. When it came, I squeeeed. Loud. Even Bella was impressed.

We start the cleaning addiction young here.

I LOVE this vacuum. I have used it every.single.day (sometimes twice) since getting it. I actually wait for someone (a cat, a child, a husband) to make a mess so I have a reason to hear that satisfying crunch we all love.

Oreck Forever™ has a nifty little contraption on the sides for the baseboards/corners of your home. You know, the ones that you have to go around and brush out or try to mauever the bulky canister to vacuum? No more. The brush sweeps the crumbs/hair out and sucks it up in the same pass.

Brushes of Wonder
In it's own little spot.
For those dark closets and dim halls.
Hotel Lines. I could stare at my floor forever when it's like this.

I decided to show you how well the Oreck works with a vlog. It picks up kitty litter (clean – simma down) and smashed crackers. Sam shot it so… *sigh* Many, many times I got to use the vacuum retakes.

I adore my Oreck, and can’t imagine ever owning another vacuum again. Now for the fun part. You have the chance to get your hands on your own Oreck Forever™ Series Gold Vacuum.

Enter the easy Rafflecopter way below, simply click each entry – it does the work for you. Be sure to leave just one comment for the mandatory entry – the rest are automatically counted by Rafflecopter as you click. Easy peasy. Questions? hormonal-imbalances at hotmail.com

GOOD LUCK and happy vacuuming!

  • Erika

    September 20, 2011 at 8:59 am

    I learned a few things. . .

    1. Like everyone else, I’m insanely excited about the prospect of winning a vaccuum. . . and equally embarassed about that.
    2. The thought of lugging around a mere 9 pounds is ahhhmazing.
    3. I’m pretty sure that nifty Oreck HEPA filter will take care of the super-annoying dog hair that seems to find it’s way into just about every nook and cranny in my home.

  • Abigail

    September 20, 2011 at 8:00 am

    Oh my goodness I need this so badly. My poor 5 year old $30 vacuum just doesn’t cut it anymore… I don’t think it ever really did.

    My family had an Oreck when I was growing up and it was awesome. I didn’t know it had a lifetime warranty though, that’s really sweet!

  • Melissa

    September 20, 2011 at 6:04 am

    I think it is a toss up of the weight and the long cord…..helpful for my pesky stairs!!!!!

  • Susan

    September 19, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    I like the 35 foot cord and the light weight and also the 99.97% clean air from the HEPA bag. I’d love to own an ORECK. My vacuum is so heavy.

    I just learned that “Now with a new Limited Lifetime Warranty**, you’ll get peace of mind that will last a lifetime.” Who knew that all I needed for that was a vacuum? Also, I just learned I have a sister that is just as obsessed with vacuuming and the lines on the carpet as I am.
