Win an Oreck XL Gold – In Pink!

by Janice

When October hits, the first colors I see are no longer just the orange hues decorating the trees, or even the bright Halloween garb lining the store shelves.

No – for me October is now PINK.

Thanks to all the companies coloring their products pink and donating to find a cure for Breast Cancer, October and pink now go hand in hand.

This year we are thrilled to bring you a giveaway for the Special Edition Oreck XL® Gold Vacuum cleaner.

Community involvement and giving back is important to the Oreck Corporation. That’s why Oreck is donating $25 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® for every risk-free trial of the Special Edition Oreck XL® Gold Vacuum cleaner. Oreck’s Clean for the Cure® campaign has donated more than $1,000,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.

Now is your chance to win this Special Edition vacuum cleaner (retail value, $599.95).

The brand-new Oreck XL Gold makes cleaning a breeze – the vacuum weighs just 9 lbs. and lays flat to fit under beds and furniture. A 5 year warranty and 5 free annual tunes will keep it running strong.

    Key benefits:

  • Dust Less Often.
    The Oreck XL Gold’s built-in filtration system traps 99.9% of all dust and allergens down to .3 microns. The dust on the floor doesn’t blow back into the air and end up on your furniture. So you could dust less often.
  • Furniture-Friendly Design.
    Its low profile, soft top-and-sides, and bright halogen light make it easy to clean around and under furniture without scratching it. Side brushes make cleaning baseboards and edges easier too.
  • Extend the life of your carpets & rugs.
    The direct suction and roller brush rotating at over 5,500 revolutions per minute draw dirt right into the bag. The brush grooms the nap as it cleans, extending the life of your expensive flooring.
  • Fast. Simple. Sanitary.
    Unlike bagless vacuums, the Saniseal® system automatically seals shut, locking the dirt in the disposable filter bag. Changing bags is effortless, odorless and clean. And one Oreck bag can hold as much as four bagless dust cups

I think it is fantastic that just through our shopping choices, we can help find a cure for Breast Cancer.

Just last week, Susan and I lost our dear neighbor, Sharon, to cancer. (Sharon was also our church’s former pastor’s wife and truly one of the nicest, most selfless people I have ever imagined, let alone known.)

She was only fifty one. Her children, just entering their twenties, now won’t have their mother to cry at their weddings or cradle their babies.

So, color this month pink!

If you need to buy a vacuum, (or you just want a new vacuum!) – visit Clean for the Cure to get more information about Oreck’s involvement in this oh-so-important cause.

If you would like to win an Oreck XL® Gold Vacuum cleaner, please leave a comment below. We will draw a winner on October 25th. This contest is only open to shipping addresses within the continental US.

Thanks Oreck!!!

With my step-kids, 2 cats & one dog I’d LOVE an Oreck! I’m glad to see so many more companies donating to Susan Koman too.

2 Krista October 1, 2008 at 5:07 pm

I would love to own a GOOD vacuum….I feel like I am constantly vacuuming with my lil one crawling everywhere! Awesome that Oreck is donating to Susan Koman!

3 Mom24 October 1, 2008 at 5:09 pm

OK, I’ve had a bad day, I’m distracted by my kids, but I’ve read the post (quickly) a couple of times, and I can’t quite figure out what I have to do to get entered. If it’s leave a comment–hope I win. If not, please take me by the hand and enlighten me.

4 Amber October 1, 2008 at 5:32 pm

I’d love a new vacuum! Boy do I need it!

5 Stephanie V October 1, 2008 at 5:33 pm

Such a wonderful cause. My grandmother was a survivior of breast cancer.

My heart goes out to your former pastor’s family.

8 Liz October 1, 2008 at 5:36 pm

A new vacuum would be fantastic.

9 Ashley October 1, 2008 at 5:37 pm

My grandparents have this vacuum and it is amazing! Breast Cancer affects so many lives (my mother in law is a survivor) and I am so happy Oreck is doing this!

10 Erin October 1, 2008 at 5:37 pm

I’m so sorry you lost a neighbor and friend to breast cancer. I love it when companies come together to help benefit good causes.

11 Judy J. October 1, 2008 at 5:38 pm

With my allergy problems, it sounds like I need an Oreck. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

12 Kalisha (Mommy Lounge) October 1, 2008 at 5:39 pm

A good vacuum is a must to keep up with good housekeeping. I just told my husband the other day that I would vacuum more if I had a new vacuum. He even says to me sometime, “Does the vacuum work?” lol Yes. Do I use it often? No.
What else do we have to do to try to win the pink Oreck?
If I don’t win it then it’s going on my X-mas list!

13 Carrie K. October 1, 2008 at 5:49 pm

I’d love one of these!

14 Sarah at themommylogues October 1, 2008 at 5:51 pm

I’d love a new vacuum! So sorry to hear about your neighbor. I really love how many companies have added pink lines — things we want or need anyway that can help a very important cause!

15 Ashley - The Adventures of Supermom October 1, 2008 at 5:51 pm

They are working for such a great cause. I’d love one of these.

16 d October 1, 2008 at 5:52 pm

I need a new vacuum. Mind died two weeks ago and the one I bought to replace it was terrible so I returned it. I need a vacuum with 3 boys and 2 dogs that shed. I can’t wait to hear what I need to do to win.

17 DJ October 1, 2008 at 5:56 pm

Sorry to hear about you neighbor.
Good for Oreck for contributing to this cause.
I would love to own one of these vacuums!

18 Jess October 1, 2008 at 5:58 pm

What a great cause! And what a great vacuum company! I’ve always dreamed of owning one of these but can’t afford it! I vacuum at least once a day and would love to do it less often with a more efficient machine! :)

19 Lachelle October 1, 2008 at 6:01 pm

I lost my mom a few years ago when she was only 48 to breast cancer. It’s hard but I try and do everything I can to help with the cure for breast cancer! I love buying and supporting companies that donate to this cause. And of course this vaccuum looks amazing and would do wonders in my house!

20 clenna in NH October 1, 2008 at 6:01 pm

OMG I need this vacuum. My old one is terrible and I can’t find a decent one;. The Santiseal sounds great.

21 Kim B. October 1, 2008 at 6:02 pm

32 Jennifer Vasquezn October 1, 2008 at 6:24 pm

We had the one year anniversary of my grandmother’s death from an undiagnosed form of metastatic cancer that we believe resulted from her breast cancer. I am a sonographer and a proud supporter for any breast cancer cause. If I could afford to BUY that vacuum cleaner, I definitely would. Thanks for your involvement in a great cause!!!

33 Jori-O October 1, 2008 at 6:25 pm

Oreck makes a great product and I love pink! Count me in!

39 chupieandjsmama October 1, 2008 at 6:40 pm

I would love to win this vacuum because I really need a new one. And the pink one is just amazing. I know too many women (young women in their 30′s) that are dealing with cancer and it’s so scary.

40 Kim October 1, 2008 at 6:40 pm

Woo Hoo! Maybe with this being pink my daughter will volunteer to vacuum more! Count me in!
Blessings to you!

41 Jenn W October 1, 2008 at 6:47 pm

Ohhh… What a great giveaway and a great way to keep the cause of finding a cure for Breast Cancer alive. We NEED a vacuum in the worst way. We actually don’t have one at all right now… we just recently moved (happened to be across the street from my mom) and we haven’t had the chance to purchase one yet. It’s getting REALLY old running my mom’s vacuum back and forth between our two houses!!

Thanks for this great giveaway!!

42 Susan October 1, 2008 at 6:47 pm

Wow, what a great thing for Oreck to do. We love our Oreck vacuum, but are due for a newer model for sure. I would love to be sporting this one in our house.

43 Naomi October 1, 2008 at 6:47 pm

The halogen light sounds like a smart feature. You must first see the dirt before you suck it up…

44 Laura October 1, 2008 at 6:47 pm

Oh, would love to win this vaccum!!!!

45 kelli October 1, 2008 at 6:48 pm

First off, our sincere condolences to the family of your friend. I can’t imagine. It hits too close to home.

Thanks for this chance on the vacuum. I’m sure my kids would love something PINK ! LOL

46 Joy October 1, 2008 at 6:53 pm

My mother died of breast cancer in 2003. I try to participate in breast cancer events – well, ok, the vacuum would be helpful, too.

47 Beth/Mom2TwoVikings October 1, 2008 at 6:54 pm

Flicka’s fave color is pink – I might actually get her to vacuum regularly! LOL

48 Dawn October 1, 2008 at 6:55 pm

54 Bailey's Leaf October 1, 2008 at 7:16 pm

Great contest, count me in!

69 Erin October 1, 2008 at 8:22 pm

It is so great and amazing that so many companies are getting involved with breast cancer research and awareness! Breast cancer is devistating and effects so many people we love. My husband’s aunt had and fought breast cancer. I have so much respect for her and all the other women that have to go through that undescribable pain. They fight so strong to beat it and are still able to keep their will power up and their spirits higher than imaginable. I would love to win a new Oreck vac, but what I would love so much more than that is for more and more companies and people to become involved in, and in support of, breast cancer research and awareness. If we can find a cure, we would all win!

70 Wendy October 1, 2008 at 8:25 pm

SO sorry to hear about the loss of your neighbor. It’s nice to see that Oreck is giving so much for Breast Cancer research!!

71 Hallie October 1, 2008 at 8:27 pm

WOW this is a great cause. my “second” mother had breast cancer and is a survivor of over 10 years! I do hope we can find a cure some day! And of a mother of three boys, 10 and twin 8 year old a new vac is always needed! Good luck everyone!

72 Cassidy October 1, 2008 at 8:28 pm

I would love to have a nice new vacuum. It would make my life so much easier to have one I could store under a bed or some place where my children won’t try to play with it! Between 3 kids, a cat, an 80 lbs puppy, and a husband a good vacuum is a must! Count me in.. and I hope I win

73 DH October 1, 2008 at 8:29 pm

I try to think pink when it comes to buying stuff all year long, but in October the availability is so much better when everyone joins in to support the cause.

74 Piseco October 1, 2008 at 8:33 pm

We’d sure love one, and good for Oreck helping to support the cause.

75 Ami October 1, 2008 at 8:38 pm

80 Savvy Housewife October 1, 2008 at 8:59 pm

81 chyk October 1, 2008 at 9:05 pm

Pink! I love pink! I’ll deal with the vacuuming because it’s a PINK vacuum!

84 Mattie October 1, 2008 at 9:13 pm

Maybe having a pink vacuum would make me enjoy the task more????

85 Melissa October 1, 2008 at 9:14 pm

Oooh!! This would INSPIRE me to vacuum often, weekly, daily even! =) Thanks ladies.

86 Megret October 1, 2008 at 9:15 pm

96 Stephanie October 1, 2008 at 9:46 pm

I would love a new vacuum! From the amount of comments, a lot of other moms do too :) I would love to replace my Wal-Mart special.

97 Julianna Monek-Mosele October 1, 2008 at 9:49 pm

Being a survivor of Breast Cancer I would LOVE a pink oreck! What a wonderful thing this company is doing to promote awareness!

98 Becoming Me October 1, 2008 at 9:51 pm

Being a BRCCA gene carrier, Breast Cancer awareness always gets my attention. And, I would love to win this great vacuum!

101 Natalie Jost October 1, 2008 at 9:55 pm

My house hates me. If anything would get the love back, this would! And if I had the money, I’d buy one. My mom raved about hers last Christmas.

102 Jacque October 1, 2008 at 10:00 pm

I would love to win this!!!
I have friends and family who have succumbed to cancer, and I will be blogging this!

Thank you Oreck for a great way to open up awareness!!!

103 Jessica F October 1, 2008 at 10:03 pm

104 Christine October 1, 2008 at 10:09 pm

Wow, you have no idea how much I need a new vacuum cleaner. We have two, one upstairs and one downstairs. We didn’t pay more than $50 for them. Together.

105 Miss Amanda October 1, 2008 at 10:09 pm

i think my comment went into spam because I linked a page for your contest!

121 Jenny October 1, 2008 at 11:16 pm

This is wonderful giveaway, thank you for the chance to win and to learn about Oreck! I had no idea they were such strong supporters. I could not only use this vacuum (I’m a clean freak), but my mom has also been recently diagnosed with breast cancer and this would be a wonderful support for her. Thanks for the chance!

122 Kristen M. October 1, 2008 at 11:18 pm

My vacuum is eleven years old – it was a floor model too. I’d love to upgrade.

123 Rebecca C October 1, 2008 at 11:19 pm

124 Jennifer3 October 1, 2008 at 11:20 pm

This would be great! I bet there are many of us who could really use a new vacuum.

125 Jackie October 1, 2008 at 11:22 pm

Seriously, 9 lbs? Mine is a monster compared to that!

126 Heather October 1, 2008 at 11:32 pm

I have looked at this vacuum and talked about (well an Oreck not this particular one!) SO many time, but there are always so many other “needs” I just can’t spend thatmuch on a vacuum! But I’d sure love to win one.

127 Sandra October 1, 2008 at 11:33 pm

This would be a wonderful addition to my cleaning arsenal….I would love to be entered!

130 Noreen October 2, 2008 at 12:23 am

our vacuum is on it last leg, I should say my husband’s vacuum (he vacuums in our house except for the stairs, they just don’t occur to him) I would love to win a new PINK vacuum for him to use! lol

141 Lisa October 2, 2008 at 2:06 am

This sounds like a great vacuum – I would love to win it! Thanks for a great giveaway!

142 Atousa October 2, 2008 at 2:10 am

143 Greta October 2, 2008 at 2:34 am

Well who wouldn’t want to win this?!
I sure would :).

144 Crystal October 2, 2008 at 2:42 am

This is GREAT! Not only do I have a special place in my heart for Cancer Awareness since my Grandma’s passing 11 years ago, I also need a good vacuum due to Noah’s immune-suppression and asthma. Oh, I hope I win!

145 Susan October 2, 2008 at 3:18 am

Wahoo! Pink is my color. I’ve never had a decent vacuume. This would be awesome to win. Thanks for the chance.

146 CanCan (Mom Most Traveled) October 2, 2008 at 4:12 am

I would love to win this! Paul Harvey would be so proud!!! (I LOVE HIM, TOO!)

147 Susan S. October 2, 2008 at 6:04 am

A new vacuum would be wonderful! Chasing many dustbunnies and crumbs from a three year old boy…

148 Jennifer Eckborg October 2, 2008 at 6:21 am

My sympathies for the loss of your friend!!

149 Debbie October 2, 2008 at 7:22 am

Oooh…I would love a new vacuum!! :o)

150 Magi October 2, 2008 at 7:33 am

I’d love to win an Oreck XL. I’ve heard wonderful things about this vacuum.

151 Jessica October 2, 2008 at 7:40 am

Wow, what an awesome contest! I could sure use a new vaccum!!

ps, don’t forget October is also Down syndrome awareness month!

152 Blessed October 2, 2008 at 7:53 am

I really like my Dyson but I’d be more than happy to give this vacuum a try!

I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your friend – my mother-in-law died of cancer 10 years ago when she was 53 – every happy event since, our wedding, the birth of three grandchildren, the wedding of her oldest grandchild – has had a tinge of sadness because she wasn’t there to witness it – my heart goes out to her children and family.

153 Mush October 2, 2008 at 7:54 am

I have enjoyed many an Oreck infomercial during sleepless nights. Actually owning one would be fantastic.

154 Kim October 2, 2008 at 8:26 am

My mother-in-law had breast cancer a few years ago and is now in remission. What Oreck is doing in wonderful!

I could definitely use a new vacuum. My husband took mine apart to fix it. He pieces left over and thing now runs in reverse BY ITSELF…

155 Michelle October 2, 2008 at 8:32 am

I would love to be entered. We are currently finishing our basement, which means I will now have to lug our vacuum up and down to all three levels. Having a vacuum that I could just keep in the basement would be so handy.

156 Chava October 2, 2008 at 8:42 am

I would love to win this and its for a great cause.


157 Bobby October 2, 2008 at 8:49 am

Wow I would love to win this for my wife. Now I’m not being sexist. She loves to vacuum, says it relaxes her. Both our birthdays are this month too.

158 Harmony October 2, 2008 at 9:33 am

A vacuum that doesn’t spit violent particles back at my feet? Please!

159 Ecki October 2, 2008 at 10:03 am

Wow, that is just so cool! I’ve had an Oreck XL for 8 years now and love it! But a second one so I don’t have to drag mine up and down the stairs would be great! Enter me in this one!

160 Saly October 2, 2008 at 10:12 am

163 Jennifer W October 2, 2008 at 11:13 am

We got our current vac over ten years ago from a friend who was getting a new on; so it was already used…thank God it has lasted this long. What a beautiful new vac. I would love to own this one and as a reminder to pray for all those suffering w/cancer. We have had too many friends and family die from this terrible disease. Sign me up! Thanks!

164 Lisa October 2, 2008 at 11:24 am

We have a real problem with buying a cheap (<$100) vacuum every couple of years instead of ponying up for a real one. This would solve that for us!

165 Carol Harrity October 2, 2008 at 11:25 am

I really think it is great that somany companies are “thinking Pink” this month. Together we will find a cure for breast cancer.

166 Sharold Friedrich October 2, 2008 at 11:25 am

I could use a vacuum not duct taped together.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your neighbor.
I would love a chance to win the Oreck! I have always seen the ads for them and wondered about them. I definitely need a new vacuum that’s for sure.

182 Lorraine October 2, 2008 at 12:09 pm

I could really use this.

183 Bunnybee October 2, 2008 at 12:13 pm

I am very sorry about your friend.
We all need to do everything in our power to support finding a cure for this terrible disease.
Thank you for offering us a chance to win the Pink Oreck.

184 Nicole Clement October 2, 2008 at 12:14 pm

I would absolutely love to have an oreck vacuum. What a great cause. Breast cancer has toched my family also. Our family is very busy with 3 kids and two shedding dogs all year round!! If I won, it would be great to prove to my husband what a great product oreck is!!

185 Tonya Keener October 2, 2008 at 12:17 pm

My vaccuum died earlier this year. In June I was laid off work and still haven’t been able to find another job. I do not own a vaccuum cleaner because I can’t afford one. PLEASE HELP ME

186 Rachel Tramontana October 2, 2008 at 12:17 pm

First and foremost …. gals, I love your site. I love the people I connect with through it and the information I find. As for the vacuum, like every other contest – it would be a huge bonus. With three kids 3 and under, we can use all the help we can get getting our house dust-free and clean. :)

PS: Love this slogan I’ve seen on some bumper stickers – “save the ta-tas!”

187 Judy Z October 2, 2008 at 12:19 pm

I really need a new vacuum cleaner, preferably an Oreck!

188 JC October 2, 2008 at 12:22 pm

I really need this!!!

189 Michelle October 2, 2008 at 12:26 pm

Oooh, oooh, oooh- pick me! We need a new vac. so, so badly!

190 Adrienne! October 2, 2008 at 12:27 pm

Oh gosh. We need a vacuum badly.

191 Meredith Barbour October 2, 2008 at 12:27 pm

First of all my oldest daughter-45-had rectal cancer last year. After the operation and 3 additional hospital visits it was found out that her recurperation, which was longer, was caused by a piece of gauze that had “fallen in” a hole that was made in her buttocks. She had a horrible time making anyone at the hospital believe her, because they said it would show up in the ct scans-just goes to show they don’t know everything. It was when she mentioned it to the person who was in charge of giving her “hyper barrick” treatments–put in a full size coffin like contraption and oxygen is put in, that this person got on the ball and the problem was taken care of. She in the mean time, lost her job, credit and god knows what all because a hospital and the doctors made a mistake–is she suing, as far as I know, you bet.
Now as far as the contest goes, 4 yrs. ago I purchased a Dyson, thinking at my age 63 at the time it would be the last vaccum I bought. I loved it so much I even wrote the company–ha ha the jokes on me, it is wearing out and I certainly would like to win this new vaccum, not only to see if all these years of watching the ads I should have gotten one years ago–I noticed before she dies my mother-in-law had 2 of them, but I never tried them out.
Hope I have a chance.
Sincerely, Meredith

192 Terri Drees October 2, 2008 at 12:29 pm

197 Rebecca Snodgrass October 2, 2008 at 12:45 pm

198 Deborah October 2, 2008 at 12:47 pm

Fantastic prize and pink for a worthy cause, to boot! My old vacuum is ugly and tired and stinky (two dogs and a cat).

203 Kristie October 2, 2008 at 1:02 pm

It’s so nice to see so many companies trying to help find a cure for breast cancer. Not sure my husband would want a lot of pink appliances, but I’m the only one that uses the vacuum, so this would be great! :)

204 Kirby McCauley October 2, 2008 at 1:05 pm

I’m moving out of my parents’ house & boy oh boy could I use this!!

205 Kerry Hines October 2, 2008 at 1:05 pm

So exciting! Congrats Oreck! I’ve got 2 kids, 2 dogs, a cat, and a very messy / dirty husband (a marine corps tanker), plus we live in the dusty desert, please!!

223 Betty N October 2, 2008 at 2:01 pm

I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t know someone who has been touched by breast cancer. In my case, it was my sister…but they also found two other cancers (colon and lung). She had surgeries and radiation/chemo but it was all just too much for her body and she had a seizure and died. I am glad to know that there are companies like Oreck sponoring Breast cancer awareness and research. And they do make a good product which any of us would love to have “in pink”.

224 Terri L October 2, 2008 at 2:03 pm

Breast cancer (and all cancers) needs to be cured!!

Would love to win this cute pink vacuum!

225 Shannon (Muzbee Crazy) October 2, 2008 at 2:04 pm

What a great looking vacuum. Kudos to Oreck for helping the breast cancer cause!

Oh my! I LOVE it! A pink vacuum. And an Oreck- Wow!

239 barbara leatham October 2, 2008 at 2:24 pm

My grandmother is a 7 year(and counting) breast cancer survivor. We are so blessed to still have her with us. As a matter of fact, she was just made a great-great grandma, and is thriving in all the love children bring. The Susan Komen foundation does great things, thanks Oreck for donating to them!

Great vacuum and prize I could surely use! Thanks!

240 Barbara Schantz October 2, 2008 at 2:30 pm

This would be great! I sure could use it!

This would be a lovely vacuum to have.

242 Jenn S. October 2, 2008 at 2:36 pm

Thank you for a wonderful giveaway. It is wonderful that they support such a great cause.

243 Sara October 2, 2008 at 2:36 pm

What an awesome prize and extra awesome that Oreck is donating so much to find a cure. I’m going to see if there is a store around here where I can go “test drive” a vaccuum for the cause! It’d be great to win too and get our cumbersome dust sucker out of the way!

244 Randy October 2, 2008 at 2:43 pm

Would really love to have this, hope I win!

245 Charlotte Winters October 2, 2008 at 2:43 pm

My current vacuum is on it’s last leg. The fan belt keeps slipping off which requires much fanfare and explectives from my husband. I’ve always wanted an Oreck. Pink is my favorite color. Who knows maybe I’ll clean more. Notice I said maybe… Also, breast cancer awareness is a cause near to my heart. My mom is a breast/ovarian cancer survivor.

246 Kelly L October 2, 2008 at 2:44 pm

Would love an Oreck vacuum to tackle all of our pet hair! Thanks!

247 Kathleen Fick October 2, 2008 at 3:34 pm

251 Kim October 2, 2008 at 3:48 pm

I have two kids and a cat, and my old vacuum isn’t working very well. Also, I have heard great things about Oreck and would love to have one of their products.

252 Isabella Schreiber October 2, 2008 at 3:57 pm

What a great vacuum! We desperately need a new one.

253 Clarica October 2, 2008 at 3:59 pm

What a great giveaway! I’ve been wanting a new vacuum and saw their other pink version that is solid pink! My hubby would just love that! :D It’ll be great for my collection of pink things from the kitchen to my tools…

254 karissa October 2, 2008 at 3:59 pm

Ya know I thought switching to dumping a canister would be better then having a bag, WRONG! that is one nasty task, almost as bad as when I had a cat and had to do litter box duty! GROSS! I want to switch back to a bag vacuum! and my vacuum days only a year or so with two dogs and nieces and nephews and a huge family!

I haven’t lost anyone to breast cancer, but caner I am a little too familiar with. what a scary disease and I pray everyday we are closer and closer to a cure or better earlier prevention! Bless all.

255 Mikki October 2, 2008 at 4:02 pm

What a great idea. Having a survivor mom of breast cancer, I love to see companies putting forth.
Thanks for the great giveaway too!

256 Donielle October 2, 2008 at 4:03 pm

I would love to own a vacuum that helps me dust less!! Especially since so many allergens and toxins hide in dust, it’ll help me keep a healthier home. Something I’m passionate about with a toddler and a baby on the way.

Crossing my fingers and hoping for an Oreck!

257 Tavia October 2, 2008 at 4:05 pm

I could definitely use this! With 4 kiddos & 11 cats I was having to vacuum daily [sometimes several times a day!] … that’s *was* as in, my vacuum is no longer among the living. :/ I’ve been having to sweep my carpet in order to keep it clean!

258 tholtyn October 2, 2008 at 4:07 pm

I have heard such great things about this vacuum!! I would love to win it!

259 Margaret Smith October 2, 2008 at 4:08 pm

260 Kelly October 2, 2008 at 4:10 pm

What a “pretty” vaccume. I hope I win!

261 ab October 2, 2008 at 4:10 pm

I can’t tell you how much I agree — even simple shopping choices can make a difference in raising funds…but also in showing visible signs of support. My stepmother has been fighting breast cancer for the last year and is still fighting hard. I’m proud of her! Thank you for the chance to win something not only practical and needed, but special and significant!

262 Ann Fantom October 2, 2008 at 4:13 pm

Wow! Incredible contest. Thanks!

263 Brandi October 2, 2008 at 4:17 pm

I would love a new vaccume. If I had one maybe my housework would get done more frequently! I hate my vaccume I have now!

264 Holly B October 2, 2008 at 4:18 pm

Oh pick me, pick me!! I have 5 kids-two daughters, a son, a husband and a cat. Who could need it more? HA HA

265 Janice Whitaker October 2, 2008 at 4:27 pm

Oreck is awesome and so is this contest!

270 Gaye McGill October 2, 2008 at 4:46 pm

Their participation in the fight against breast cancer is just one more reason to support Oreck and their great products.

271 Cathy W. October 2, 2008 at 5:04 pm

Owning a vacuum like this would be like a dream come true. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

272 Carol E October 2, 2008 at 5:14 pm

When I was in Japan they use to have all their cleaning appliances in pastel colors: mint green, baby blue, light yellow, pink, etc. My friend told me it was to give you energy to “feel” like cleaning. Thanks Oreck for support Susan Koman!

273 wanda October 2, 2008 at 5:15 pm

Awesome reason to have a contest.The Oreck XL is a nice prize to win also.Thanks !

290 Shannon B. October 2, 2008 at 6:18 pm

I’d love a new vacuum that actually works and all. But this vacuum would be for Mother. She’s a 2-year survivor, donates to the cure, and collects all things related. Thanks for the opportunity!

Two constantly shedding dogs, one child, one guinea pig, and lots of fish that the child feeds and spills food. We could sure use a good vacuum.

Me, Me, pick me. I have always wanted an Oreck.

362 Kerry October 3, 2008 at 2:50 am

364 Carol G October 3, 2008 at 3:08 am

I never thought of a vacuum in pink, but since it is tied to the Breast Cancer awareness theme of October, it makes sense.

365 aquart October 3, 2008 at 3:43 am

A pink Oreck? We already had our victory this summer. The wedding of my sister’s best friend, ten years after the RECURRENCE of breast cancer. Happy, healthy, and redecorating.

366 Janna johnson October 3, 2008 at 3:48 am

Wow would I love this! I currently use a broom, dust mop, rug sweeper ( a Bissell?), and a Swiffer Wet Jet (in that order) to clean up after my brood. I don’t even have a vacuum cleaner! As for offering pink products to benefit Susan G. Komen I have a list of shops that create handmade items that have agreed to join the cause on my blog linked to my name above. Just another way to show our support!


381 Donna Lee October 3, 2008 at 8:13 am

Ok… the Oreck is something I truly need. The pink is something I really want. Pick me please!

383 Bobby Campbell October 3, 2008 at 8:20 am

Both mine and my wife’s birthday is in October. Thankfully there is not a history of breast cancer in our family, but my sister lost one of her best friends years ago so we are aware of the significance of this month. This would be an awesome prize to win. Thanks for the opportunity.

416 Robert Doscher October 3, 2008 at 11:10 am

I have a long hair cat whom I adore. Unfortunately, my GF is allergic. Hopefully this vacuum would help with this problem.

Thank you for this promotion.

430 Shirley Hodge October 3, 2008 at 12:53 pm

Saw this competition and couldn’t lose the opportunity. I have had cancer twice, cervical and colon and both of them were caught early and surgically cured and so I have made it my mission not to miss the opportunity to tell people that their first line of defense against cancer is themselves. Because I religiously had my pap smears and fecal smears my cancers were caught early when they were ammenable to surgical intervention. Never, never, never miss a scheduled breast self exam or yearly mammagram, a yearly pap smear, a yearly fecal smear, a yearly testicular self exam (if you have sons remind them and if they don’t know how have them ask their school’s sports coaches or their doctor-this type of cancer if especially prevalent in young men. Finally never ignore any unusual symptom even if it doesn’t seem too bad to you. There are cancers which are not ammenable to screening and as I said you are the first line of defense against these. Even now I still have pap smears because although I no longer have a cervex vaginal cancer is a possibility. Cancer is sneaky and don’t let it catch you unawares.

431 leloni October 3, 2008 at 12:55 pm

One of my best friends died of breast cancer in Nov 89. This was before awareness of this disease and prevention was as avidly promoted as it is today. I thank God for the vast communication and education available today. This is an awesome prize for commemorating and this Special Edition vac will be a reminder for years to come.

455 Carrie M October 3, 2008 at 3:09 pm

I could so use a new vaccum! The best part about winningthis would be that my husband does most of the vaccuming at our house and I would pay to see him pushing a pink vaccum!

456 Janelle Morarie October 3, 2008 at 3:14 pm

Cool Vac, and cool color,too-a girl I work with who’s just a couple years older than me(she’s 31)was just diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer! What the HEY! It used to be just older women who seemed to get breast cancer-so speak up to your Drs.,ladies,even if you are younger than 40-especially if you have a family history!Good luck everybody-and let’s END breast cancer in our lifetime!

457 Betty Green October 3, 2008 at 3:19 pm

I have been checking out the Orek because it is getting difficult for me to push around a heavy vacuum. The Orek seems to fit the bill for me and I would be tickled pink to win it. :)

459 kelleythejewelrylady October 3, 2008 at 3:50 pm

This is a great contest and a great way to raise awareness for a disease that must be swept away.
(I may actually vacume once in awhile with this sweet little number too )

460 International Freebies and Contests October 3, 2008 at 3:53 pm

May Sharon rest in peace.

Hats off for the cause.

461 Nancy October 3, 2008 at 4:11 pm

Thanks for the contest.

470 susan t October 3, 2008 at 5:21 pm

I have an older Oreck and love it. Would love a new one. It would be especially nice in pink. I am a recent breast cancer survivor (still going thru treatments) and love that October is designated to help with breast cancer awareness and fund raisers. Thanks for the giveaway.

471 Demetra October 3, 2008 at 5:23 pm

Since it is Breast cancer awereness month, this is a great way to market this time and its awareness. I have a dear friend with breast cancer and have lost loved ones to the disease. I would give anything to find a cure for cancer – it is truly taking many lives and leaving others empty.

472 Peatheski October 3, 2008 at 5:25 pm

474 Christy Hickman October 3, 2008 at 5:31 pm

I would love to win this for my mother-in-law. She really needs a new vacuum and with her being older she isn’t able to handle ones that are real heavy. This would be perfect for her. Thanks for the great giveaway and for the chance to win.

475 Carole Grover October 3, 2008 at 5:33 pm

485 Tammy Kennedy October 3, 2008 at 6:13 pm

I hope all woman have a breast exam yearly and they should do a self check monthly to catch any problems early. My grandmother had breast cancer so all the females in my family are very aware of the need to catch any problem as soon as possible. Would enjoy owning a Oreck as I have heard they are a very good vacuum. Thank yo for all your time, effort, information and energy putting together these contests and having this site.

486 Anne D October 3, 2008 at 6:13 pm

I need a new vacuum so badly. Mine is literally falling apart.

487 Janis October 3, 2008 at 6:21 pm

With two one-year olds and another on the way and a current vaccuum cleaner that “sucks” (or rather doesn’t suck) this would be such a blessing! My floors need your help!

Thank you.


488 Dana D. October 3, 2008 at 6:35 pm

Just send it to me!!

489 Carrie Mahan October 3, 2008 at 6:37 pm

I’m so glad to see so many companies support Breast Cancer Awarenee Month – my grandma suffered from breast cancer, thankfully it didn’t take her life.

499 Karla K October 3, 2008 at 8:26 pm


500 Barbara M October 3, 2008 at 8:38 pm

I could sure use a vaccuum cleaner.
I’m all for pink too.

501 barbara October 3, 2008 at 8:40 pm

I had an Oreck vacuum in my former residence. It was the best vacuum I ever had: lightweight, great suction and with the light in front you could clean in the dark. Now, I have a built-in vacuum and I am not happy with it, so I would really be happy to win the Oreck.

502 Mickeee October 3, 2008 at 8:54 pm

Great contest

503 Deanne October 3, 2008 at 8:54 pm

This is a whopper of a prize! I’ve never owned one before but have heard very good things about them. I also like that there is an Oreck store by the mall, so when if it ever needed serviced, it’s as simple as just taking it in.

504 Jenny mayer October 3, 2008 at 8:55 pm

Thanks for this giveaway because every time this would be used it should remind women to check themselves

515 Maggie Mannwieler October 3, 2008 at 9:50 pm

Kudos Oreck, and the other companies throughout the US who are joining us in the fight to cure breast cancer. Neat vacuum, too. I want to remind all of your readers to perform their self-exams, check for any lumps or changes in your breast as early detection is the key to catch breast cancer before it spreads. When in doubt, see your GYN or OB/GYN. Together we can find a cure. Many thanks for offering such a great giveaway while supporting the cause. Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with breast cancer.

516 Linda Lansford October 3, 2008 at 9:58 pm

A new vacuum is just what I need.

517 Wendy October 3, 2008 at 10:12 pm

608 Pam Bukowsky October 5, 2008 at 2:53 pm

612 Ruth :) October 5, 2008 at 5:27 pm

I love to support companies who support breast cancer research. My mom is a two time breast cancer survivor – and believe me – I don’t think there is a day that goes by that I am so pleased that she had a great staff of doctors and family and friends during those times. Thank you Oreck and 5 minutes for Mom for not only a chance to win a great product – but for remembering the importance of breast cancer research!

613 Dawn Kasper October 5, 2008 at 6:17 pm

Sorry about the loss of your neighbor. It’s great that there are so many ways to help in the fight of cancer now.

703 Bonny S. October 9, 2008 at 4:22 am

That is AWESOME that the Oreck Corporation is donating $25 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for every risk-free trial of the Special Edition Oreck XL Gold Vacuum cleaner and that Oreck’s Clean for the Cure campaign has donated more than $1,000,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
That is just wonderful that they are helping out to prevent breast cancer.

My Grandmother got breast cancer and had to have a mastectomy. It tuned into lung cancer and killed her.

HOORAY for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Their are too many wonderful people out there that need the cure and hopefully very soon they will find it.

I definitely need a vacuum cleaner. I have a beautiful birman cat and does he ever shed his hair all over.

Great contest!
Good lucky everyone!

704 Jessica B October 9, 2008 at 1:27 pm

Wow, I could so use a vacuum! Mine is horrible, but they are so expensive and we can’t afford a new one right now- And an Oreck- love them! Thanks for this opportunity!

717 Ret October 10, 2008 at 7:14 am

I must have the messiest family in the country because no matter what vaccuum I buy, it doesn’t pick up all the dirt they track in. I believe Oreck will!

I am in need of a new vacuum.

732 Sherry October 11, 2008 at 10:50 am

This is really an awesome prize. Kudos to Oreck for supporting such a worthwhile cause. Sadly my father passed away in June. He hurt his back in Dec last year and for the next few months I had to take him for x-rays. At Christmas time I didn’t think too much of the Tree in the waiting room with white and pink bows. In April I was curious though and got a closer look, the bows had names on them. I asked about it and found that the pink bows represented breast cancer survivors and the white ones were ladies that didn’t make it. After that on each trip I read more names. It’s shocking. God bless all who have been touched by this disease.

733 David A. Gregory October 11, 2008 at 12:21 pm

The ORECK is a great vacuum.
And this is a nice color for a good cause.
If I win this pink ORECK, it will always be out for visitors to see! No closet for this vacuum.
My wife and I would both be doing the vacuumming, as usual.

734 Catherine copeland October 11, 2008 at 12:23 pm

744 Laurie Connor October 12, 2008 at 12:14 am

I’ve never had a vacuum cleaner last a year. It would be a dream to have an Oreck.

745 Stacie Paulk October 12, 2008 at 1:59 am

This would be a god send to our household of 6 cats, 3 dogs, a todder and a husband who refuses to take his shoes off at the door. There is pet hair, dirt, sand and crumbs everwhere! Would love to retire my old hand me down Hoover for an Oreck XL.

746 Sonya October 12, 2008 at 2:34 am

757 Beth October 12, 2008 at 7:12 pm

Ya know..if ya gotta vacuum, it might as well be with a PINK machine! I have three 2-year olds and boy can they make some messes on the carpet!

By the way, I am really grateful that there’s so much more light being shed these days on breast cancer awareness. I’m 44 and remember very well my own mother being hospitalized for cancer before I even started school.

And thanks for the contest, too!!


758 Albert October 12, 2008 at 7:41 pm

759 Toby October 12, 2008 at 7:42 pm

765 Karen A. October 13, 2008 at 12:02 am

I’m so sorry to hear about your neighbor. It’s hard losing a friend or relative to cancer. I know as I’ve lost a few myself. I still have all the great memories of those people though.

I almost feel bad about asking to enter the vacuum sweeps, but I do need a new one as mine is about ready to bite the dust…no pun intended.

Oh, and the most important thing that I didn’t put in my first comment was that my mom has been battling cancer for three years and just last month got a clean bill of health! We support cancer awareness and research!

791 Amy-Happy Momma October 14, 2008 at 11:02 am

When I was in college, I had an Oreck and I really liked it. I left home and had to leave it behind. :D

I am 32yrs old, a mother of four, AND a 2 year cancer survivor – this month!

I had a goal the beginning of this year to participate in my first 5k this year. Well, just the past Sat. Oct. 11th I was a 5K participant in the Susan Komen Race for the Cure in Knoxville, TN. It was an amazing experience. One I am blessed and thankful to have been a part of.

Practically speaking, we do have need of a new vac and this would be a very special contest to win being a cancer survivor, wife, mother – Vac would kind of become another “walk of celebration” :D

Thank you.

792 michelle October 14, 2008 at 11:03 am

Enter me too! I love the Oreck vacuums. I’ve never owned one but I’ve borrowed a few and been really happy with the performance and weight. I can’t believe they are such light vacuums!

793 Amy October 14, 2008 at 11:03 am

A pink vac for a great cause! Thanks ladies :)

794 Tina Wright October 14, 2008 at 11:07 am

I would love to win this cute pink vac!!!
I love that more & more companies are getting involved in raising money & awareness.
cancer of any type is an awful thing for anyone to endure, I lost a husband to cancer 4 years ago.

795 Beth October 14, 2008 at 11:10 am

Okay, so I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed because I first bought a navy blue rug then proceeded to get a golden retriever puppy. Needless to say, by 5 pm each day, if I don’t vacuum, my rug looks more like a 70′s shag carpet. Using the Oreck XL Gold vacuum with its built-in filtration system would make this daily routine so much more satisfying.

796 Kassi October 14, 2008 at 11:10 am

I have a big and busy family…we NEED a new vacuum cleaner, one that won’t be replaced every 9 months!

797 allena October 14, 2008 at 11:11 am

i would love to win. we need a new vac! and a pink one is even better.

798 Amy October 14, 2008 at 11:11 am

Oh, it’s even PINK! I am in desperate need of a new vacuum. After 15 years, three boys and a life on a farm, mine just gave up–can you imagine? :-)

Thanks for this great contest.


799 Florence Bellamy October 14, 2008 at 11:11 am

Could I ever use this!

800 Sharon October 14, 2008 at 11:13 am

Yes please!!!
We need a GOOD vacuum. Our Eureka just isn’t cutting it, or sucking well I should say.

Thanks for the opportunity!

801 Karen October 14, 2008 at 11:14 am

I totally need a new *lightweight* vacuum!

802 Mamarazzi October 14, 2008 at 11:15 am


803 kimberly October 14, 2008 at 11:16 am

with 5 kids, a dog and a gusband who owns a landscaping buisness (ie…grass everywhere) I would be blessed to own a vaccum cleaner that works well! Esp with my new carpet!!!

804 kimberly October 14, 2008 at 11:17 am

805 Melissa Shough October 14, 2008 at 11:22 am

How wonderful! My vacuum cleaner is on the fritz and this would be great to have!! With a 5 year old at home, he sure knows how to keep the house messy with stringing crumbs all over! Please enter me in the contest!

Please accept my sympathy for your dear friend. I will keep her family and friends in my prayers. God Bless!

806 Lori October 14, 2008 at 11:26 am

Thanks for the chance to win this great vacuum!

807 Fiddledeedee October 14, 2008 at 11:28 am

Oh my word. A pink vacuum. Please pick me Mr. Random Number Generator!

808 Rebecca Hurt October 14, 2008 at 11:30 am

Wow, this would be such a big blessing to our family! Our 2 daughters and me are quite allergic to dust. I have what I thought was a good vacuum but it isn’t that old and already blows dust and debrea out of it (giving me more to clean up). The doctor said I needed to keep our house as dust free as possible, I thought bagless would help. It’s terrible! The dirt and dust goes everywhere when I empty the container leaving me ithy and sneezing! I have my daughters leave the room when I vacuum and I often wear a mask so I limit exposure to the dust. Unfortunately, I am a WAHM and we can’t really afford a wonderful vacuum like this, so I make do. Pink is perfect, my aunt is a survivor and my girls love pink!

809 Gina October 14, 2008 at 11:32 am

I would love this!!! It’s great quality and it’s pink. Nothing like feeling pretty while cleaning.

810 Kim October 14, 2008 at 11:37 am

819 Janet F October 14, 2008 at 12:40 pm

824 Heather October 14, 2008 at 1:28 pm

Wow! What a generous giveaway! I would love to win this as I have had the same vacuum cleaner that I got when I got married 11 1/2 years ago! ;) Thanks again!

825 jen October 14, 2008 at 2:08 pm

I’d love a vacuum that actually worked…thanks for the chance to win this one!

827 Kimberly October 14, 2008 at 2:12 pm

This is a great prize. Thanks for listing this contest.

828 Alaina F October 14, 2008 at 3:00 pm

Oreck is an awesome company- not only for their community support and with the breast cancer research, but the products are amazing.
My mother had a scare while I was still in high school. Thankfully for her it was nothing- but for so many other mothers it’s not just a scare.

She also has one of the older models of the Oreck XL’s. There have been times while she is gone on vacation I’ll go and snag it from her house to use. They are awesome- and now one in Pink- Woo hoo!!!

But does that mean my husband will not do the vacuuming???

829 jodi October 14, 2008 at 3:04 pm

great prize – thanks!

830 Shannon Benavidez October 14, 2008 at 3:22 pm

That is so awesome! All of the details are perfect. I especially love that it folds down to fit under a bed. That is a super idea. Our vacuum just broke so this would be a super thing to win!!

831 Jodene Gildea October 14, 2008 at 3:25 pm

Oh, please pick me – my vacuum is shot again, I can’t seem to find one that makes it thru a year so this one would really make my day. I am actually thinking about purchasing one but with Christmas right around the corner it may have to wait. Winning one would be fantastic though!

832 Miche October 14, 2008 at 4:04 pm

Oh my goodness, that would be the greatest vacuum ever! I love pink and you know what? I think a fun pink vacuum that helps saves lives would motivate me to clean more!

833 Elizabeth Wittenberg October 14, 2008 at 4:18 pm

I don’t have a vacuum right now. With three dogs and two cats, this would be a most wonderful gift.

834 Brian October 14, 2008 at 4:20 pm

Support breast cancer – Orecks are Great !!!
I would be proud to have a Pink Vacuum cleaner !!!

835 Renee October 14, 2008 at 4:31 pm

I think I would be happy vaccuuming with this. Pick me!!!

836 Jae October 14, 2008 at 4:41 pm

With three kids, two dogs and a cat, that vacuum would be SO welcome in my home!! Add that it’s pink, and girly – PERFECTION! :)

837 Regina October 14, 2008 at 5:11 pm

WOW! I would love a new vacuum. I would also love to retire the one that we received as a wedding gift. I actually love to vacuum but a new one and one that gives to PINK would be even more enjoyable! Please randomly pick my name!

838 Jennifer Brewer October 14, 2008 at 5:14 pm

i hope i haven’t already entered this. what an amazing giveaway!

839 Michele Davis October 14, 2008 at 5:19 pm

Dust less often? That’s like music to my ears! What a great vacuum! Pink would HAVE to make vacuuming more fun!

840 Marjorie October 14, 2008 at 6:08 pm

Very sorry about your friend, but thanks to you and Oreck more attention is now being brought to the cause.

841 Stacy Geisinger October 14, 2008 at 6:14 pm

I would be tickled pink to vscuum with this oreck upright.

842 Yvonne October 14, 2008 at 6:19 pm

Wow…in pink, I can’t wait to see my sons using this! (Not very likely, but it did give me a grin!)

843 Betsy October 14, 2008 at 6:35 pm

Awesome! That will make vacuuming fun!!

844 Sweet Mummy October 14, 2008 at 7:12 pm

Oh wow! A chance to win a pink vacuum – How FUN!!!

Sign me up! With 843 ahead of me… not sure how good my chances are, but I’ll give it a shot!!

Owning a pink vacuum has been my lifelong dream

848 Melissa S October 14, 2008 at 9:23 pm

I would love an oreck – especially a pink one!

849 Janean Douglass October 14, 2008 at 9:29 pm

I used to use an Oreck XL when I was a hotel maid about 25 years ago. They were super lightweight and after cleaning about 10 upstairs rooms, I was EVER SO GRATEFUL!
Of course the ones at the motel were grey and red…not pretty PINK like this one. COUNT ME IN, PLEASE?!?

850 PaperDoll October 14, 2008 at 9:30 pm

Our vaccuum just gave up yesterday while I was cleaning! I would LOVE to have a pink vaccuum!!!

851 Karen October 14, 2008 at 9:33 pm

I am a survivor that can tell you that Susan Komen does great things for us. Oreck is also a great vacuum cleaner, even better now that they have gone pink for the cure. I would love to be the winner!

852 Jenny in Ca October 14, 2008 at 10:24 pm

what a neat looking vacuum, and what a great cause, please enter me into the contest!

853 Dorothy Hall October 14, 2008 at 10:29 pm

I’m always up for a new vac! Thanks!

855 Sarah October 14, 2008 at 11:52 pm

I always get my mammograms each year. My oldest sister was diagnosed at 33, passed at 37. Early detection saves lives!

856 BEVERLY YOUNT October 15, 2008 at 12:09 am

I have always wanted to own an ORECK, but could never afford one.

857 Gina C October 15, 2008 at 12:27 am

Wow! I probably don’t have a chance at this, but I really need a new vacuum cleaner!

858 Christelle October 15, 2008 at 1:45 am

I was just telling my husband that we need a new vacuum! I would love to win this and be able to tell people that Oreck has donated over a mil to help beat cancer!!! SO COOL!!! thanks for the contest :o)

859 Heather October 15, 2008 at 1:53 am

I would love to win a really good vacuum cleaner! And what girl wouldn’t want a pink one?!

860 Christy October 15, 2008 at 5:35 am

I love how so many companies are going pink! I love pink anyway, but never has pink been so powerful. Pink is no longer just a color, it is a movement. Thank you, Oreck, for making a difference (and hey, sponsoring this contest? yeah, that’s pretty cool, too). And thank you ladies for hosting it and sharing this great op. A pink vaccum cleaner… now that is seriously a vacuum I could love (ya know, as much as one could actually love a vacuum). ;)

862 Terry Greene October 15, 2008 at 3:43 pm

What a great prize and a worthy cause too. My family has been fortunate not to have anyone in our family’s fall victim to it. She has a little pink card hanging over the shower head reminding her to self exam monthly. She loves pink and I’m not too much of a man to use a pink vacuum.

Thanks for this opportunity.

863 Anissa October 15, 2008 at 4:08 pm

Just a great cause

864 matthew meisenhelder October 15, 2008 at 4:43 pm

877 Valerie October 16, 2008 at 1:45 am

My mother in law and best friend both had breast cancer about 6 months after hip replacement surgery. Both of them have survived and support breast cancer victims. It has been 19 years of being cancer free for my mother-in-law. To win a new vacume would be great! To find a cure would be incredible!

878 Beverly P October 16, 2008 at 3:15 am

I would love to win this vacuum! I love pink and have never owned an Oreck. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

879 Melissa P October 16, 2008 at 2:21 pm

885 Annie October 16, 2008 at 5:07 pm

Thanks for the giveaway

889 Bev October 17, 2008 at 1:27 am

I feel for Sharon’s children. I just lost my mom last month (not to cancer) and I’m having a hard time in my 50′s. This would be a great prize to win. October is Pink now.

890 Amy G. October 17, 2008 at 1:56 am

Thank you for the opportunity.

893 Shannon B. October 17, 2008 at 10:05 am

I would love to win this. I do not know many people who have not been effected by breast cancer in some way. My mother-in-law was diagnosed 5 months after our wedding in November 03. She made it through that battle but had a recurrence in August 07. She looks to have beaten it once again but we pray every day for her continued health!

894 Rebecca October 17, 2008 at 11:01 am

I could really use this!

895 tanya wilson October 17, 2008 at 1:12 pm

My family has been very fortunate to not have had anyone to fall victim to this dreaded disease. However most of us know somebody or know somebody that knows somebody and so on. I have a daughter and a granddaughter, and it is my wish that cancer will be cured in their lifetime.

897 Cam R October 17, 2008 at 3:22 pm

I lost my Gramma to cancer, I’m glad to see activism in a sweepstakes.

901 Alison October 17, 2008 at 7:10 pm

My favorite cousin died of breast cancer and she was only 50 years old.

This year I’ve been blogging every day about “pink” products that give back to breast cancer research and support groups, and I think lots of these limited edition items will make great holiday gifts “for the girls.”

It is so important raise awareness and support and together we can possibly wipe out, or at least mostly eliminate, this awful disease!

Thanks for supporting the cause as well

902 Sheri Gorbey October 17, 2008 at 10:23 pm

As a single mother of two very active children, I could use any help I can get when it comes to cleaning. Thanks for the opportunity and good luck to all!

A new vaccuum would be awesome, ours is losing steam.

919 Norm Porter October 18, 2008 at 10:08 am

Best vacuum for the money on the market.

920 Brenda Spurlin October 18, 2008 at 10:43 am

Thanks to Oreck for donating the vacuum! The Komen organization does such good work in my area! Recently had a walk for life. My husband is in a barbershop quartet and they sang the national anthem at the start of the walk!

921 Kathy Scott October 18, 2008 at 10:48 am

946 Christie October 19, 2008 at 3:33 am

947 Brianne October 19, 2008 at 3:53 am

949 jackie October 19, 2008 at 7:18 am

950 Maryellen October 19, 2008 at 7:47 am

As a 41 year old breast cancer survivor myself and having lost my mother at 52 from breast cancer, I understand your neighbor’s familys loss all to well. I also so sorry for you…it’s hard and really sad that we don’t a cure for breast cancer yet. But I so low when October rolls around and I see so many people and companies pulling together to make a difference. So thank you and thank Oreck for an awesome contest…please enter me !!

961 Deidre October 19, 2008 at 4:33 pm

Oh, how cute! I probably don’t have a chance in h-e-double hockey sticks, but I’m gonna give it a shot anyway. LOL


962 Kari A. October 19, 2008 at 4:33 pm

I almost caught the house on fire 2 days ago when my vacuum finally bit the dust (no pun intended). It started sparking and I was freaking out!! So, this would be absolutely fabulous!!
Kudos to Oreck for sponsoring this giveaway and for their support of breast cancer research… I know of no one who hasn’t been touched in someway by this disease – including me (2 member of my family are fighting the disease).

963 Emmy T October 19, 2008 at 5:04 pm

I have been borrowing my mother-in-laws, because the price of vacumes now days is amazing! I am keeping my fingers crossed!

964 Peg E October 19, 2008 at 5:22 pm

I would love to be able to give my daughter a brand new vacuum as she starts out “on her own”.

965 Belenda October 19, 2008 at 5:40 pm

A new vacuum is at the top of my Christmas wishlist – I would love to win this one!

966 Sheila October 19, 2008 at 5:50 pm

971 Tammy Couch October 19, 2008 at 8:41 pm

I am a breast cancer survivor. Diagnosed in July, 2006. I would like to buy my daughter, Janna, a new vacuum but due to my high medical bills for the past few years, I am not able to due so. Can you help? I am a single parent of two (now grown) daughters. Janna and her husband are taking care of his younger sister and nephew. So money has been very tight in our family. Thanks.

972 Autumn H October 19, 2008 at 8:45 pm

We really need a new vacuum.

980 Christina October 19, 2008 at 11:56 pm

I think it’s absolutely GREAT that Oreck is contributing so much money to finding the Cure! I have two friends who’ve had breast cancer, one my brother’s wife, who died of it (and left me as a surrogate mom to her daughter, Sarah) and another who’s an amazing free spirit but had a double masectomy. It seems amazing to look forward to a time when neither of these things would have to happen! And of course we never know when it might happen to any one of US.

981 R Hicks October 20, 2008 at 12:01 am

Oreck is to be commended for such a good cause.

982 Rita S October 20, 2008 at 12:02 am

Very nice!

983 Margaret October 20, 2008 at 7:44 am

It would be an HONOR to use this vacuume.

984 ky2here October 20, 2008 at 8:18 am

I’d love an Oreck XL gold, looks like lots of posts, the odds are fantastic but there’s always hope?

985 Sandra Brodeur October 20, 2008 at 9:07 am

Wonderful giveaway! For a great cause! Thank you.

986 Patty October 20, 2008 at 9:27 am

thanks for the great pink giveaway!

987 JONI CHADWELL October 20, 2008 at 11:34 am

Oh! This looks like a really nice machine!

988 Virginia Murr October 20, 2008 at 12:14 pm

My family has had a pretty persistent history with breast cancer — my step-mom being the most recent to go through it (she is doing well!). Because of this, my husband and I do everything we can financially do to support breast cancer awareness! This vacuum must be the most unique way I’ve ever seen a support of breast cancer awareness! Very cool.

989 Rochelle K. October 20, 2008 at 1:30 pm

First – I’m sorry the loss of your neighbor Sharon. It’s so hard any time someone close to your heart is lost before their time to something as destructive as Cancer. I lost my Great Aunt several years ago to Breast Cancer and it really was devastating. Anyway – I think what your doing is great. All these sites are creating a lot more awareness (I know I’ve learned a few things!) and there’s really nothing better than that. Well, I hope I hear from you soon with the good news of my new vacuum!! lol JK

Thanks again and good luck everyone!

990 Robby C October 20, 2008 at 2:08 pm

I’m very sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. My family has been fortunate. This is a fantastic and unique way of supporting breast cancer awareness. Please count me in.

991 Gayle Morgan October 20, 2008 at 2:37 pm

I am glad to see more companies jump on board to support breast cancer – it is a great cause.

992 Anita Yancey October 20, 2008 at 2:39 pm

I would love to win this vac, and I could sure use it. With cleaning up after this family, I can use all the help I can get.

993 Becky K. October 20, 2008 at 2:50 pm

Great Cause, Great Product! What more can I say?

994 Jennifer Haffner October 20, 2008 at 2:57 pm

My vacuum is slowly dying and is getting resistant to all the goldfish crackers. Would love to win it!

995 william causey October 20, 2008 at 3:12 pm

Terrific prize…I would love to win!

999 Janine October 20, 2008 at 5:51 pm

1000 Sonya October 20, 2008 at 6:59 pm

Oreck deserves high praise for everything they’re doing to help the fight against this devastating illness. Thanks for the opportunity to win this great vacuum!

1001 laura lysiak October 20, 2008 at 7:37 pm

1006 karen gonzalez October 20, 2008 at 11:22 pm

I wouldn’t have to buy a new 79 dollar vacuum every year if I won this beauty

1007 Ruth C October 21, 2008 at 7:44 am

What a great way to recognize the importance of Breast Cancer awareness. Early detection and research are so important. A fabulous prize to boot.

1008 Marsha October 21, 2008 at 8:53 am

I love that your helping a wonderful cause and the vacuum!

1009 sharon johnson October 21, 2008 at 9:05 am

1010 Denise October 21, 2008 at 9:15 am

with this maybe my kids would want to help vaccuum!!

1011 Marie October 21, 2008 at 10:09 am

What a great vacuum, I could use something like this with two kids and four spoiled cats :-)

1012 Paula H October 21, 2008 at 12:12 pm

This would be great to have with 4 kids in the house! :)

1013 Victoria Simmons October 21, 2008 at 12:58 pm

I, too, have lost many to this disease.

We have had the same vacuum for the past 12 years and it was used when we got it. We could really use this new vacuum especially with a 10 year old boy in the house! Thanks for the chance!

1014 Amanda C October 21, 2008 at 1:13 pm

What a great contest. I love Oreck and can’t afford a new vacume right now. I am sooo glad a lot of companies are finding ways to bring awareness to Breast Cancer Research!!!!

1015 Angela C October 21, 2008 at 1:18 pm

Thanks for the contest…what a worthy cause! I am so sorry to hear about your neighbor.
God Bless you and her family.

I need this! Our hand me down vacuum is dying on me.

1031 Kelly F October 22, 2008 at 3:32 am

This is an amazing giveaway. I am not sure if I am breaking the rules, but I am not a mom yet. I am currently just planning and love reading your blog. Right now I a broke college student and this would really help me out. I have been using this cheap vacuum and let’s just say that it is not quite cutting it (in other words, ground in cheetos is becoming the norm rather than the oddity haha). But seriously, thanks for raising awareness and I am glad that October is now associated with the color pink!

1032 Faith October 22, 2008 at 7:21 am

Another broke college student who could use a new vacuum, rather than my current parental hand me down.

1033 Doug October 22, 2008 at 8:28 am

Our Hoover is on its last leg, could certainly use a new vacuum cleaner.

1034 LEANN October 22, 2008 at 9:37 am

I’m a single mom of 3 (2 girls/1 boy). I work nights full time to pay the bills (deadbeat dad). I thought that if I won this maybe my girls would want to use it (it’s pink!). Then I might actually have a few minutes to myself!

1035 Christine C. October 22, 2008 at 9:43 am

Wonderful cause! I would love a pink vacuum.

1036 Karen October 22, 2008 at 9:54 am

What a great idea!! A Pink Vacuum. I have a pink DVD that is a Susan G Komen. I think we should all buy pink to donate to this wonderful cause.

1037 Mary October 22, 2008 at 10:31 am

Wonderful cause!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1038 LaDonna October 22, 2008 at 10:31 am

My carpet is terrible.. no matter how many times I vaccume it. I have tried to keep it clean but my $40 one does not do the job. I know that my mom would love to try this vaccume, so if I were to win it, she would try it out and love it. Then go get herself one.

1075 Sara Amos October 22, 2008 at 10:46 pm

1081 Sarah Pauzauskie October 23, 2008 at 12:17 am

I’m glad Oreck cares enough to be a Breast Cancer supporter! What a great example they set! :)

I’d love a pink Oreck vacuum. I even live close to an Oreck store so picking up replacement bags would be a breeze.

I love Orecks Vacuums. They last long, and are light weight, great suction as well!

ooooo, a new pink vacuum!

1104 C. Gibbs October 23, 2008 at 10:17 am

I miss my first Oreck! This one is so pretty that I think I could even get my 9 year old girl to think vacuuming was cool!

1105 Michelle Simons October 23, 2008 at 10:20 am

Great vacuum and a great cause!

1106 Paula Harmon October 23, 2008 at 10:35 am

Well, this cool thing would make that chore a little less drab, wouldn’t it? Of course, it would make me think of my 2 aunts as well, we lost one to breast cancer, the other one beat it two times!!! She is the stubborn one for sure!!!
