Oreck Is Letting Kitties Give Away an AirInstinct 200!

I am the queen of the Oreck AirInstinct 200 air purifier!

Well, at least they are letting this kitty give one away! In fact, they let us have a super-cool air purifier for free to try out too! You should have seen my human’s face light up when it arrived on our doorstep. Our vintage home is a dust and pet fur magnet. It even makes us kitties cough. And we’ve been checked out for asthma so we know it is not that.

I am glad I'm not the one who has to assemble this!

I was worried for a moment when I saw the instruction manual, but the humans were able to assemble it easily with the Quickstart Guide. The manual explains things like cleaning it and troubleshooting, but we haven’t had it long enough to need any of that information yet.

I claim this air purifier as mine!

For the first week, the humans put it in the bedroom to see how it worked there. It has a three-year HEPA filter and a three-year odor filter, plus it’s Energy Star® qualified. On the low setting it is whisper quiet, or it can create white noise on high settings (which my human’s boyfriend likes to have when he sleeps). All this is great to know if you are a human. If you are a kitty, you are just sort of worried that the house might not smell like you own it anymore.

I don't know if I'm in the mood for this!

See that colored ring up there? That’s the part that makes the AirInstinct™ 200 so smart! It actually monitors all the stuff that is floating through the air with its sensor and adjusts its own speed — your human can just turn it on and walk away! And you know what the speed is because of the cool Mood Light. It has four settings, blue being the lowest, then purple and magenta, with red being the highest.

Trust me, it is dusty up here!

While it was in the bedroom, the AirInstinct™ 200 never got above purple, and my human didn’t think we were working it hard enough. So she moved it up to the living room. We cats spend the more active parts of our day up here and my human’s messy, dusty office is right off the living room so she thought it would get a real test up here!

I should have included a photo of my human doing squat jumps.

And what do you know, it did! Actually, the only time it turned full-on red was when my human was doing a cardio dance workout — I wonder what that says about her exercise routine.

Sorry Boodie, but you and your fur are busted!

But of course we cats also help. Boodie is rushing by, trying to keep the AirInstinct™ 200 from changing color! But she can’t hide all that fur!

All us cats are giving the AirInstinct 200 a run for its money!

Binga gives the AirInstinct™ 200 her face rub of approval. In the time we’ve had it, we have almost completely stopped coughing! I can’t say for sure that the air purifier is totally responsible for that, but it is making the air lots cleaner!

Now let me get down to the good part: you can have one of these awesome AirInstinct™ air purifiers too! I bet there are a lot of you kitties out there with humans like mine, who really want a top-of-the-line air purifier but can’t shell out the money for it (they are not cheap!). Now here is your chance to get one in my special drawing!

I am trying something new this time and using something called Rafflecopter, which is still in the beta (tryout) stage. To enter, all you need to do is visit the Oreck site and comment below about one thing you learned about the AirInstinct 200. The winner will be picked randomly. But you can get more entries and more chances to win by following me or Oreck on Twitter, or being our fans on Facebook! (Hopefully Rafflecopter counts it if you already follow or fan me!) I hope this form below makes it easy for you to do. Let me know how it works out for you because I think it is a pretty cool new way to do drawings.

Unfortunately, only residents of the U.S. 48 contiguous states can enter (now I seriously have to make it up to my international friends!). The drawing ends at 11:59 AM November 30, and I will announce the big winner on December 1! And I promise I am going to come up with a drawing for my international kitty friends only!

    Wow! You’re right when you say that our human has always wanted one, but just hasn’t put the money together for it! It’s too bad we’re in Canada, but we are excited to see someone winning this!

  2. says

    Sparkle, this looks like a great air purifier! We like the streamlined look and found on on the Oreck site that it is supposed to be very quiet, which is a good thing. And Mom believes HEPA filtration systems like this are better than EPS systems. If we win we MIGHT give it to my human sister and her husband with all his allergies. Anyway, we will certainly tell them about it and suggest maybe they want to buy one.

  3. says

    Wow, what a great drawing this is. It probably will explode in our house without even running. Our Mom can barely walk much less run. LOL. That sure would help our poor house.

  4. says

    Whoa! That thing looks space age! Yikes, I learned on their site that it costs one cent less than $500. We have some big orange lights for air purifiers but I bet the peeps wouldn’t mind one of these, even if it might take up half our apartment. TW has asthma and it’s getting worse so this may help. I already follow you on Twitter and FB but I’ll click just the same.

  5. says

    I learned this: How it works: captures 99.97% of dust, allergens, smoke, pet dander and pollen particles as small as .3 microns from the air that passes through its filter.

    I am now a smart goat.
    The publicist cold use this ’cause the male person has allergies

  6. says

    Let’s see if the Woman can do all those things…the oreck.com/sparklecat is down because it says it is overloaded…Wow! The 200 is expensive! That’s a nice aircleaner. It does up to 248 square feet in a room is what we learned on the main site (also very slow).

  7. says

    Sparkle, this is so cool! We need this air purifier. We learned that the air inside our house can be 5 times more polluted than outdoor air!

    Our mom wants a oreck vacuum cleaner for Christmas. Do you think Santa will bring her one??

    We entered!

  8. J9Felines says

    Love the modern look and the nice glow it gives off! We love things that light up and would do well with anything that makes our Cookie stop sneezing!!

  9. says

    Wow! This is so cool and could really help with mom Paula’s allergies. We like the idea that it continuously checks particles in the air passing through its sensor and adjusts its air flow speed accordingly.

    Please enter us!

  10. Carol says

    I learned that the AirInstinct is smarter than I am. It knows when to work and how hard to work, and I wouldn’t have a clue about how to set it. Pretty clever!

    Please enter me!

  11. says

    We learned that the purifer takes up nearly 98% of all the allergns out of the air and that is impressive. IF you knew how bad we shed that would be fabulous for Mom!


  12. Martha says

    I learned it was 499.00 that is a lot of money! Its awesome all it can do but that is one lot of money to put out…we’d love to be the winner!

  13. Admiral Hestorb says

    I would LOVE to have this. Admiral is suffering from allergies and I am too! I don’t feel lucky so I won’t win BUT I wanted to say I sure wish I had one.

  14. Admiral Hestorb says

    I forgot to say it was interesting, really, to learn that the Oreck works harder where the need is more. That was fascinating. Man I’d love to have it.

  15. says

    We would love, love, love to have one of these! Because we are so active running around and having smackdowns, lots of dust, allergens and smells get all stirred up and it makes our mom cough a lot. The feature it turns itself off automatically when the room is all better is one thing we learned and liked.

  16. Laura and Taffy says

    We learned that it does biiigg rooms! Our open plan home needs a powerful air cleaner, ‘specially with all the construction repair that need to be done from the ice and water damage this past winter. We like everything about it. Great giveaway!

  17. sue brandes says

    I learned that Captures 99.97% of dust, allergens, smoke, pet dander and pollen at .3 microns from the air that passes through its filter. Thanks for the giveaway.

  18. Charisse B says

    We learned about the Oreck filter’s color change monitoring technology & think it is cool! Thanks for sharing this contest Oreck & Sparkle!

  19. says

    Wow wow wow! This this is cool!!! we have some Hepa filters, but nothing so wonderful as this!

    I learned that it changes colour the harder it works…I think I would just watch it all day and throw things in the hole to see what happened.

  20. Angie V & Henry says

    We would sure like to win the Oreck AirInstinct 200 air purifier.
    Mom has terrible allergies to lots of things (including us cats) and has been getting allergy shots for 8 years and has to use nasal sprays and antihistamines 365 days a year to keep them under control. We are a 3 kitty household and have lots of shedding and fur flying about; I am a long haired kitty and one of my brothers is a Ragdoll kitty and we are always leaving hair everywhere.

  21. Rebecca says

    I like the fact that it’s whisper quiet and that the kitties have stopped coughing and sneezing. I would love to have one of these in my house, for sure!

  22. J Scott says

    Wow! Thanks for all of the great information Sparkle; you sound like a real smart kitty. Thanks to you and the Oreck website I learned that the Oreck AirInstinct 200 is whisper quiet. Also, It has a Hepa filter that catches particles as small as .3 microns! This would really help with the dust, pollen (I live in Atlanta and people that have never had allergies before have problems when they move here), and the SMOKE from MY NEIGHBOR burning yard debris ALL THE TIME, like now… My eyes are watering and burning, I’m sneezing, wheezing, and coughing…. Oh, an very important, this “wonder machine” is Energy Star compliant so it can run continuously and not gobble up as much energy.

  23. LOUISE RAHLFS says

    wow, what a great filter 99.97 that gets just about all that kitty stuff and i also learned there is several models and they are so quiet maybe if we win pops asthma will get better

  24. LOUISE RAHLFS says

    wow, what a great filter 99.97 that gets just about all that kitty stuff and i also learned there is several models and they are so quiet maybe if we win pops asthma will get better I HOPE I DID EVERYTHING RIGHT

  25. Donna Marshall says

    I learned that you can test drive any Oreck product for 30 days. And I love how quiet this one is! With all the kitty fur around, we could really use this!
