Win an Oreck XL Gold – In Pink!

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!!!


  1. Nichole says

    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. says

    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. says

    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. says

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

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

  5. says

    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!

  6. says

    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.

  7. Judy J. says

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

  8. says

    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!

  9. says

    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!

  10. says

    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.

  11. says

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

  12. Jess says

    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! :)

  13. Lachelle says

    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!

  14. clenna in NH says

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

  15. says

    I just found out one of my dear friends has breast cancer. This is a really important and special month for me.
    Thanks so much for all your sharing!!!

  16. says

    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!!!

  17. says

    With 2 kids and one cat, this would definitely be a welcome gift!

    October 26th is the 3rd anniversary of the passing of my best friend’s mom due to breast cancer. I cheer on any and all support in finding a cure for this disease!

  18. says

    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.

  19. says

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

  20. says

    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!!

  21. says

    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.

  22. says

    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

  23. Joy says

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

  24. Amanda says

    I was just telling my husband how bad we needed a new vaccuum, we would never be able to afford this though….so awesome to have the chance to win! Thank-you.

  25. Bailey's Leaf says

    I’m scheduled for my very first mammogram this month. I’m only 35, but they wanted a baseline. I hope that others will consider doing this, as well.

  26. Nadia says

    Way to go Oreck Corporation for donating to the Susan G. Komen Foundation!! We need to find a cure ASAP.
    And what an awesome vacuum this is!
    Thank you for the chance to win.

  27. Pam says

    What a great cause! There is nothing that I could use more right now than a new vacuum cleaner. Especially a great one, like an Oreck!

  28. says

    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!

  29. says

    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!!

  30. says

    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!

  31. says

    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

  32. says

    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.

  33. says

    My grandma’s always telling me how great Orecks are, though she doesn’t own one. Maybe I would give this one to her if I won!
    musesofmegret (at) gmail (dot) com

  34. says

    Definitely need a new vacuum, in fact, we’ve been “shopping” around for one, looking at reviews & stuff. Love that it’s pink!

  35. says

    I would love to win this! I still have the same vacuum that we received for our wedding 12 years ago. It’s a little pathetic 😉

  36. Becoming Me says

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

  37. says

    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.

  38. says

    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!!!

  39. says

    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.

  40. Natalie says

    Thank you Oreck for stepping on board for breast cancer awareness. Not only are they are great company and vacuum cleaner, but also putting their name towards a good cause. Great giveaway and info!

  41. says

    A new vacuum would be wonderful….a new Oreck would be FANTASTIC! Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to win!

  42. says

    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!

  43. says

    I really would love to win this as my vaccuum sucks (or rather it doesn’t suck), it would e great to have one that also helps breast cancer.


  44. Heather says

    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.

  45. Sandra says

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

    owatz (AT) telus (DOT) net

  46. says

    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

  47. tle says

    My mom ALWAYS swore by Oreck. She loved it so much nobody else was ever allowed to use it!! She lost her fight with breast cancer a year ago. Thanks Oreck for supporting the cause.

  48. says

    what a great thing oreck is doing. cancer touches all of our lives. it will be nice to know some of my money for purchases will go towards finding a cure.

    and thanks for the opportunity to win such a fine product.

  49. says

    A great cause!

    Not only would I love to have this, but so would my 9 month old Little Guy. He has been working up the nerve to crawl. He finaly did it today….all the way across the living room floor to see the VACUUM CLEANER! He’s mesmerized by it!

  50. Carolina says

    I would love to enter to win an Oreck!!! I have been wanting one for a while now! And how cool would it be to get one in Pink!!! Love it!

  51. Carol F. says

    I would love a new vacuum. I could really use less dust here at my house in the SW and this one sounds like a winner!

  52. says

    I would love to win a new vacuum cleaner. I had an Oreck rebuilt about 10 yrs ago and loved it. I’m sure a brand new one will be awesome. Thank you for offering it. Take care and God bless, Cory

  53. Atousa says

    I have 3 little ones and two kitties and would love a new vacuum!! I found your site via Anissa’s Blog about Peyton and her family!

    Pick me….pick me :)

  54. says

    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!

  55. says

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

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

  56. says

    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.

  57. Mush says

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

  58. says

    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…

  59. says

    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.

  60. Bobby says

    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.

  61. says

    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!

  62. says

    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!

  63. says

    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!

  64. Carol Harrity says

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

  65. says

    I am on my fourth cheap-o vacuum . . . this year! I cannot tell you how much I NEED this vacuum, and pink is just icing on the cake since it is my favorite color of all time!

    Thanks for hosting this and thank YOU Oreck for the offer.

  66. Dawn Walters says

    OMG! A new Vacuum , in pink and a donation made to Susan Komen. It doesn’t get any better than that.

  67. Holly Blanco says

    What a great idea, a regular “Pink” reminder to do a self brest exam. I would love a new vaccum

  68. says

    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.

  69. Bunnybee says

    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.

  70. Nicole Clement says

    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!!

  71. Tonya Keener says

    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

  72. says

    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!”

  73. Meredith Barbour says

    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

  74. Stacey Shehorn says

    Oh my goodness… I so need this win. My vacumn is messed up somehow and this would be so wonderful.

  75. Carol says

    I would love to win this. My vacuumm now is so old and heavy, it’s like lugging a dead elephant from room to room.

  76. says

    I don’t know how you do it, but you always manage to find and give the most awesomest prizes!!!!!

    Please count me in for this giveaway, I need this SO-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O–O-O-OO-O BADLY!!!!!

    Thanks graciously, Barb
    (crossing my fingers)

  77. Michelle says

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

  78. Kristie says

    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! :)

  79. Kerry Hines says

    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!!

  80. Debra B says

    I have two cats that shed tons everyday, would love to win this vacuum, Thanks for the great giveaway, and love the Pink Oreck!!!

  81. Colleen Jensen says

    I lost an aunt and my mom has battled breast cancer for years. I really need a new vacuum and pink is my favorite color.

  82. Brandlyn says

    My aunt and my grandmother is a breast cancer survivor and my momhad a cancer scare a coupple of years ago. I know that mom would love this prize!

  83. Teresa says

    I would love it!! :)

    Thank you for the great giveaway!


  84. Yulonda Sams says

    This sweepstakes is for a great cause, not to mention, it is the prettiest vacuum cleaner that I’ve ever seen. Please select me!!

  85. alyce poalillo says

    Wow, stylish and high performance-just what I want in a vacuum!With 6 cats I sure could use this!

  86. says

    Very cool…both the color and the cause. I just saw this vacuum at Target and drooled over it! I’d love to win it!! Thanks for the contest!

  87. Pat says

    What a fabulous giveaway! My vacuum is more than 20 years old, and I could sure use a new one!

  88. Betty N says

    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”.

  89. Terri L says

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

    Would love to win this cute pink vacuum!

  90. Melissa C says

    I would so love this vacuum–my favorite color is pink and I always wanted an Oreck. My son and I have allergies and asthma and could really use this. Thanks for this great giveaway!

  91. c. clemens says

    This is a great prize- for real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I would love to win, my mom has one for a long time and it still works great. But right now cant afford one.

  92. Tracy says

    I would love to win an Oreck XL. I’ve never had a good vacuum. It would be fantastic to win a pink one.

  93. barbara leatham says

    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!

  94. MissesMM says

    I am so sorry for your loss. I have lost several family members to Breast Cancer as well. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway.
    This would be a lovely vacuum to have.

  95. Jenn S. says

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

  96. says

    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!

  97. Charlotte Winters says

    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.

  98. Pat B says

    I’d love to win this for my mom. She has 2 cats, one that sheds if you just look at her. This would really make her housecleaning a lot easier.

  99. Kim says

    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.

  100. says

    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! 😀 It’ll be great for my collection of pink things from the kitchen to my tools…

  101. karissa says

    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.

  102. says

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

  103. says

    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!

  104. Tavia says

    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!

  105. Margaret Smith says

    What a wonderful, wonderful prize and giveaway! I am so happy to see so many companies bringing about breast cancer awareness. I’d be proud to support companies who care about their clients. I’d really love to win this vacuum. We could really use one. Thanks so much for this fantastic giveway.

  106. ab says

    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!

  107. says

    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!

  108. Gaye McGill says

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

  109. Cathy W. says

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

  110. Carol E says

    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!

  111. christina barnes says



    I need a new vaccuum the one I have is at least 20 yrs old! If not older!

  112. Jenny Martin says

    I would LOVE to win this for my mother. Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 1994. She had a mastecomy and two weeks later, my dad left her for another woman….she has been thru alot in the last 14 years…but Thank the Dear Lord…she is still cancer free!

  113. joanmurraycefalu says

    This is terrific. I really want to win :). I have 4 cats (two long haired) and a cocker spaniel. I could use some help! We are drowning in fur…….

  114. Marsha says

    Oreck is my favorite brand of vacuum cleaner, and I love the cause. I’m a 15 year survivor. A mammogram saved my life. Get yours today!!!

  115. Shannon B. says

    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!

  116. Joyce Long says

    I have a good friend battling breast cancer right now and I think it is a cause we all need to join together to find a cure.

  117. says

    I have a dear friend who is fighting breast cancer as we speak. Oreck is doing an awesome thing by supporting this wonderful cause.

  118. Kathleen says

    I would love to win this for two reasons! I love pink and I love helping a wonderful cause! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  119. Lynn Persha says

    I would love the vacuum and to have it in pink for breast cancer is a wonderful idea.

  120. K. Cleaver says

    Sorry for the lose of your friend.

    Thanks for entering me too. My old vacuum wouldn’t mind being retired.

  121. Cheryl Larimer says

    Vacuuming is my husbands job. He would love love love a new pink vacuum and I would love love love a clean house.

  122. Valerie says

    I’m very sorry to hear about Sharon. That is my story too. My 2 brothers and I lost our mom to this disease when we were all in our early twenties. She was beautiful in every way.

  123. pammyb says

    This sounds wonderful since mine no longer works well. I have had family and friends touched by cancer and just pray that I escape it. Thanks.

  124. Carol Harrity says

    Think Pink is a wonderful reminder of the fight against breast cancer.

    I could really use this vacuum-I have a black lab and a black cat and they both shed tremendous amount of hair.

  125. Roxanne Williamson says

    What a great giveaway! Love to get all the “discarded” kitty fur off the old carpet.

  126. Donna S. says

    Stage 4 terminal breast cancer here. We need more awareness on metastatic breast cancer!
    Thank you for the great giveaway!

  128. lynn b says

    Thanks for offering it!

  132. Paige Cushman says

    I’m just about to strike out on my own and it would be great to own a vaccuum that I didn’t buy from Goodwill!

  133. danielle says

    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.

  134. Kerry says

    Happy to hear that Oreck is donating to a very worthy cause. I could really use a new vacumm with a teenage boy, 7 cats, and a big dog! thanks!

  135. allan says

    i don’t have breast cancer because i am a guy but i do fill bad for all the woman who do .
    so can i win the vac

  136. Carol G says

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

  137. aquart says

    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.

  138. Janna johnson says

    What an awesome giveaway! I would love to win this because my dog is a MAJOR shedder and my 1 year old nephew just moved into my house. Thanks a ton!

  139. says

    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!


  140. Donna Lee says

    A pink vaccuum would be just want I need and want. A Oreck is the best vaccuum on the market. This is a really good win.

  141. Heather Hill says

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

  142. Bobby Campbell says

    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.

  143. says

    I would love to win an Oreck! I thought I already left a comment but apparently it wasn’t saved. My parents own one and love it. Here’s hoping!

  144. Tiffany Taylor says

    Do I ever need an Oreck! We have a houseful of pets, and I’d love to have a really good vaccuum to help clean up the hair and dander. Thanks!

  145. Vida says

    Thanks for a WONDERFUL contest opportunity while being able to support Susan G. Komen for the Cure!!

  146. Diana G says

    This would be so useful with 4 animals in the house. I can never keep up with all the hair. I love the pink. I have had too many friends lose mothers to this disease.

  147. Roger Keeney says

    What a great prize and cause! Hope I win as I am blind and my better half is in recovery from this very condition.

  148. tawnda says

    would love to win this! My current Oreck is dying due to the dog hair & my kids running it over EVERYTHING that will fit under the brush… (and some stuff that doesn’t easily… lol) Please pick me!

  149. Mary Marlatt says

    I’ve always wanted an Oreck vacuum, and with all the people I know who have had (or died from) breast cancer, it’s good to know they are giving to the cause.
    Thanks for the contest.

  150. Christine says

    I sooooo need a new vacuum. I have three dogs and four cats and it’s so hard keeping up with the dust bunnies that just keep multiplying! Please, I beg of you. 😉

  151. Tiffany Lane says

    this is awesom. i need a good vaccum. if oreck is donationg to breast cancer thats even better.

  152. Robert Doscher says

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

  153. Lauren says

    this is SO amazing! i am obsessed with pink and i think i would be willing to clean all day every day with this beauty!

  154. Katharine says

    pink is the color of the month! Thanks for the chance to win, between pets and kids I need a new vaccuum.

  155. Shirley Hodge says

    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.

  156. Kimberly B says

    Don’t forget to check the girls and go see the OBGYN Ladies.
    Thanx for the contest!!

  157. Debbie says

    I have lost a few family members to breast cancer. The most loved..go figure. God Bless all who support the CURE. You think…my favorite colr is PINK !

  158. karen c. says

    I love when companies help us be more aware of the world around us and give us opportunities to donate just by doing what we love to do — SHOP!

  159. Sherry C says

    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.

  160. Carrie M says

    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!

  161. Janelle Morarie says

    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!

  162. Betty Green says

    What an awesome prize for such an important cause for such a dreaded disease. Great job Oreck.

  163. janet says

    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. :)

  164. says

    Your warm memories of her will help keep Sharon alive in your heart! Thank you for the opportunity to win this wonderful vacuum!

  165. Brian Pedaci says

    Wow, lots of comments, but I guess everybody’s got the same chance, right?

    Hope I win!

  166. Beverly Sue Embree says

    I am a 2 time breast cancer survivor. I’m fighting right now. I would love to win the pink Oreck. Had one many years ago and I loved it. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the contest. Thanks for helping many others and me. God bless you.

  167. susan t says

    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.

  168. Demetra says

    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.

  169. Christy Hickman says

    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.

  170. Carole Grover says

    I need a high quality vacuum to clean the air of pet dander, pollen, and other pollutants.

  171. patsy says

    I bought an Oreck when they first hit the market. I’ll give my old one to someone who really needs it and enjoy the new one!

  172. Sue Eberhardt says

    Oreck gold in PINK is a happy way to do the housework and remember our friends and family with breast cancer. What a great Oreck machine!

  173. Tammy Kennedy says

    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.

  174. says

    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.


  175. Carrie Mahan says

    I’d love to win an Oreck, I’ll never be able to afford one. Plus, it’s great that the company is so involved in Breast Cancer.

  176. Christine says

    This is so great and how nice of Oreck to do this for such a wonderful cause. Thank you!

  177. Diane says

    I would love to win this. Oreck is a great vacuum cleaner and it would be constant reminder of a worthy cause.

  178. says

    We SO need a vacuum!! Our’s has completely lost all it’s sucking power!!! And I’ve been wanting an Oreck for a LONG time!! This is a great giveaway! (not to mention it’s PINK! how fun is that?!)

    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.

  179. barbara says

    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.

  180. Deanne says

    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.

  181. Jenny mayer says

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

  182. Robin Grenier says

    My mother is a Breast Cancer survivor! I think it is great the Oreck is helping out with Breast Cancer research.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  183. Melanie Lee says

    Please enter me, I have a very,very old Oreck. They are great vacuums. I would love a new one and this special color is wonderful.

  184. Lisa Weidknecht says

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I have lost two friends this past year to cancer. Thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway!

  185. Maggie Mannwieler says

    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.

  186. Shirley Koch says

    I would love to have a new vacuum! The one I have has so many broken parts on it, it would be great to have a new one!

  187. Jeffrey W says

    Our vacuum is not that good. My sister-in-law has an Oreck and is very happy with it. Hope I win it. Thanks.

  188. says

    I would LOVE to win this pink vacuum. Pink is my favorite color and with a golden retriever and my first baby (a boy) on the way I have much need for a new vacuum to keep my NYC apartment clean. Please pick me! Great cause and great giveaway!

  196. Julia Magrath says

    If you saw how much dog hair was on my floors, you’d want me to have this for sure!

  197. says

    I would love this vacuum. Not only do I have 2 kids and 3 dogs, but I’m living at home with my dad and he’d love for me to have this vacuum so I would clean up the dog bunnies floating around. :)

  198. Alecia Gibson says

    Thank you so much for this giveaway. I need a vacuum really bad. Mine just broke last week (it was cheap, unlike the Oreck). My Grandparents bought their Oreck when my Dad was a teenager and it still works like new.

  200. Jane Grey says

    I’m at a huge risk of breast cancer and it terrifies me. Thanks for this great giveaway and getting word out about this wonderful cause.

  201. Maggie Mannwieler says

    CORRECTION TO MY POST #514: I meant to say that every 3 minutes someone is DIAGNOSED with cancer (and not that someone dies every 3 minutes).

    I got your attention though, didn’t I?

  202. Pamela Murphy says

    I really need a new vac. My old one just isn’t doing a good job anymore. I would love an Oreck!

  203. Barbara says

    I’m so lucky that I have not lost a loved one to breast cancer, but I know many many other people who have. Thank you for the great contest.

  204. Rosanne Morrison says

    Have had breast cancer 3 times and lost a sister to it at age 46. Thanks you for your support for this worthy cause.

  205. Janice Wright says

    With two shedding animals, my lab & my cat, I have a lot of hair around. I would love to have a vacuum that can handle it.

    jwright at iowatelecom dot net

  206. Jean H says

    Cats; allergies; dust and dirt from kids with elephant feet; doors opening and closing welcoming in shredded leaves and plants from kids playing in the yard. This is a busy and happy household that would embrace a new lightweight marvel of engineering. Thanks for the chance at this giveaway!

  207. denice p says

    i have to agree it’s great when companies help sponsor to fight cancer. Oreck just got points in my book.

  208. ann says

  210. Lori Williams says

    I love contests that that are meaningful in some way, and this one is meaningful in a BIG way. Thanks.

  211. Erica says

    My vacuum doesn’t do the job very well and smells like burning. Not so hot. This one looks great, and I love that they’re going pink! Thanks so much for introducing it to us!

  212. Teresa Hoyt says

    I would love this! My vacuum is on its last leg and puts out an unpleasant smell. Thanks for the chance to win!

    In my many-year search for the perfect vacuum, Oreck is one of the brands I’ve really wanted to try. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  215. Lydia says

    Nice that Oreck helps out for a good cause. I’ve used their vacuums before, they’re fairly good but nice and light.

  216. Kasey says

    With 4 kids and a dog,this vacuum will have a loving home here, I promise to use it everyday and to never take it for granted :)
    Thanks for this contest

  217. alison says

    As a woman, I understand the importance of doing self checks and getting mamograms. Thanks for the great contest!

  218. Diane Maher says

    I have an Oreck…but, sadly, it’s getting old. It needs a new cord and some other new parts. I would LOVE to have a new one and be able to retire my granny Oreck. It deserves a rest and could retire happily.

  219. HZ says

    Normally don’t comment but it’s great that Oreck is contributing to breast cancer research. And I could use a good vacuum cleaner. Thanks Oreck.

  220. says

    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!

  221. B. Newton says

    I’ve always wanted an Oreck after seeing the commercials for years…and what better color to have than pink?!

  222. says

    Many of my friends have walked the 3 day and I’d like to give a shout out to all the women out there battling this disease! You go girls! I pray we find a cure soon so that no more of our voices are lost!

    Great idea Oreck! Great Color! My mom has had one for years, I just could never afford one! lol

    Good luck one and all

  223. Ally says

    Oh my … I could really really use this… my vacuum is older than I am (and I will be 30 in January).. I have become a vacuum cleaner repair specalist lately.

    Thanks for entering me!!!

  224. NINA RIVERA says


  225. Jessica says

    I need this – I’m taking an internship in habitat restoration and it is going to ruin the carpets.

  226. Jill Miller says

    My vacuum weighs at least 500 lbs (seems like it!) and I’d love to have a lightweight Oreck — the pink would be a wonderful bonus!



  228. Katherine D. says

    our vacuum cleaner just broke down, so a new PINK vacuum would be awesome! good luck all.

  229. Louise says

    Really great prize with a message too. Year round reminder for self exam and an important cause.

  230. Melissa Zimmerman says

    with the tree of us in the house, an pembroke welch corgi and a parakeet i feel im vacauming all the time and this would be a great help,escpcially with my asthma.

  231. Mical Holcomb says

    A vaccumm in Pink! How girlie! I think my husband wound get loads of use out of it. Especially since it’s an Oreck…

  232. whitney says

    This would be a god-send – I own 2 vacuums and they are old & don’t work well, about to give out entirely. I would love to own this!

  233. Judy M says

    Two hairy dogs and a yard full of stuff for them to drag inside = I need a really good vacuum! Thanks to Orek for supporting the cause for breast cancer research!

  234. Rachel Fox says

    I NEED this! Between my two Fox Terriers and my hairy fiance, this will be put to good use! Thanks for the opportunity!

  235. Cathy says

    Awesome! I really need a new vacuum – my hose is literally held onto the machine by silver duct tape! Would love to win – thanks!

  236. Clifton Wade says

    My disabled wife of more than 38 years (from cancer) deserves a decent vacuum cleaner – and this is one of them.
    Thanks for this great contest and prize!

  237. Cindy says

    I am so glad that Oreck and other companies are now doing so much to support breast cancer research. Hopefully, a cure is in our near future.

  238. Virginia says

    Wow….that sure would take the sting out of vacuming for me. I just LOVE pink. Thank for bringing this to our attention. :)

  239. Jennifer Short says

    This is an amazing giveaway, please enter me, and please pick me as the winner! Sure could use this!

  240. Alissa Schrader says

    I’ve looked at Oreck’s on more than one occasion, but recently Ive bought two “cheap” vacuums and needless to say you cant scrimp money in this area, they just dont match up.

    AND I LOVE PINK!! Thanks for this great giveaway

  241. says

    Sorry to hear about your loss. That is very sad. Cancer is a scary thing. I love that the month of October (my birthday month) is dedicated to finding a cure for one of the killers.

    I would love to win the vacuum!!! I have posted several times on my blog about how I dislike mine!

  242. says

    We definitely need a new vacuum cleaner right now. The one we have doesn’t pick anything up,and Oreck has a reputation for making great, powerful vacuums. This is a great giveaway!

  243. Ralph Siegel says

    Entering for my wife who is a survivor. Great of Oreck to support a cure for breast cancer.

  244. says

    My mom does the 3-Day walk every year in honor of my godmother and several friends she has lost. I’m glad so many companies are involved in this important cause.

  245. Pauline M says

    Having three aunts who have had breast cancer in the past five years really makes me realize how important that finding a cure is. I love this vacuum and am happy that other companies are participating in the fight!

  246. Bonnie Day says

    I would love to have this I have a cheap vacuum and it does’nt do a gppd job getting up the dog and cat hair off the carpets and doesn’t get close enough to the floor to get up the dirt

    Bonnie in FL

  247. Russ says

    This would be AWESOME!!!! Maybe if I win this, my carpets would be cleaned when I vacuum them, instead of wasting my time.

  248. Debra W. says

    It’s great when we can think beyond ourselves to help others. Thanks for the contest.

  249. Jennifer Harriman says

    My husband gave away my great vacuum and bought me a heavy crappy vacuum.. what he was thinking I dont know. but I would LOVE a new one, I have 3 kids and 2 animals.. I NEEEEED a vacuum :)

  250. Courtney S says

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

  251. says

    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!

  252. Jessica B says

    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!

  253. Pamela Warren says

    I really do need a new vacuum cleaner. Oreck rocks! Please enter me in your contest.

  254. Lori Walker says

    We’ve never had a vaccuum that could handle our two dogs’ hair! This would be amazing!

  255. says

    I would love a new vacuum, Ours makes this horrible smell, We really need to get a new one, Ive just been waiting till we have enough money. To win this, would be fantastic!!

  256. Melanie Billings says

    I’d LOVE to win this. It would be the perfect way to combat all the dog and cat hair that accumulates around here. I have enough to make a new dog and cat by the end of each day, I think!

  257. joan rojas says

    My vacuum has seen better days, I would love this, I might actually enjoy vacuuming…hahaha

  258. Christy Goodwin says

    What an amazing vacuum! I really want this so I can follow my four kids and 2 doggies around.

  259. Ret says

    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!

  260. Amanda says

    I sure could use a new vacuum the one I have is so old and so heavy. Oreck makes great Vacuums

  261. OlyveOyl says

    This would not only cure the problem with dust bunnies – but it would be a constant reminder (as I need to vacuum often) the the needed awareness of breast cancer.

  262. Sherry says

    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.

    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.

  264. Catherine copeland says

    the oreck xl gold is the best vacuum ever. i have wanted one forever. I could really use it considering i have two dogs

  265. Debra F says

    This is such a great vacuum and a great giveaway. I love that this vacuum has sanitary features. We could really use this at our house.

  266. joseph fischer says

    Thanks, my Mom would absolutely LOVE this vaccuum. And maybe even if I helped her out with the chores from time to time.

  267. Stacie Paulk says

    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.

  268. Sonya says

    I passed on my Oreck awhile back because I THOUGHT I found a better vacuum and now I want it back!

  269. Mitchell H says

    i love pink, love to vacuum, need a new one, and have breast cancer survivors in my family… i got this one covered! :)

  270. kerri says

    i think it is so great of how these people support breast cancer ,and with the big companies likr these it truly shows they care

  271. Kristi Price says

    My mom and her 2 sisters are all breast cancer survivors. Thanks to Oreck for supporting a great cause and having a giveaway!

  272. Beth says

    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!!


  273. Larry says

    My Mom would LOVE this, especially with the great air filtering and hurricane strength vacuuming power! Hope I win so I can give it to her!

  274. Sue E says

    Thanks for the chance to win this vacuum. Living in the country and having light colored carpet does not mix! Kudos to Oreck for supporting breast cancer awareness!

  275. Karen A. says

    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.

  276. Lisa Posner says

    I’ve heard such good things about Orecks! This would be wonderful to have for our first home, which we’ll be moving into in a few weeks!

  277. says

    OMg…I have FIVE dogs in the house, PLUS a kid. I need another vacuum! (just to prove the dog issue, here’s my dog website Seriously, I just bought a shark steam mop today for my hard floors and it was a JOKE! Please, pick me for something I can honestly use!

  278. says

    I have always wanted to try an Oreck on our carpet! I have heard so many great things about them, and I have a feeling that it could actually get our shag carpet clean. And who doesn’t love pink? :) Thanks for the chance!

  279. Ericka says

    Awesome give away, awesome cause :)
    With two doggies and three boys, vacuums are desperately needed :)
    Thanks for the chance!

  280. says

    Oh yes! Who wouldn’t want a pink vacuum. I would decorate my entire house in pink if I could, but I live with only boys. But a pink vacuum would brighten my day!

  281. says

    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!

  282. says

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

    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” 😀

    Thank you.

  283. says

    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!

  284. says

    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.

  285. says

    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.

  286. says

    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.


  287. says

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

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  288. says

    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!!!
