LINCOLNSHIRE, IL (January 11, 2007) – Once the holiday carolers have stopped singing and presents have been unwrapped you can still receive another gift – the SWINGLINE® Performance Rewards Sweepstakes – to inspire financial planning for the future with a grand prize of a $100,000 savings bond.

LINCOLNSHIRE, IL (January 11, 2007) – Once the holiday carolers have stopped singing and presents have been unwrapped you can still receive another gift – the SWINGLINE® Performance Rewards Sweepstakes – to inspire financial planning for the future with a grand prize of a $100,000 savings bond.

The sweepstakes celebrates the launch of the new Swingline® Optima™ PowerEase™ staplers, which help secure important financial documents, especially during the upcoming busy tax season.

In addition to the $100,000 Grand Prize savings bond, other prizes will include five first prizes of a $1,000 savings bond and 10 second prizes of a $500 savings bond. The contest begins this week and runs through tax season, ending April 15, 2007.

Entry forms are available at OfficeMax, Office Depot, and Staples or online at www.performancerewards.swingline.com. Mail-in entries must be postmarked by April 16 to qualify, and no purchase is necessary for the sweepstakes participation. The winners will be selected in a random drawing in early May 2007.

"Tax season can be extremely stressful, especially as it gets closer to the April 15 deadline, and the purchase of a Swingline product can help alleviate consumers' worries,” said Jeff Ackerberg, President of the Workspace Tools business unit of ACCO Brands. "Along with providing stapling and punching tools that make filing tax returns easier, we are reducing tax season stress this year by providing a number of lucky winners with savings bonds for the future.”

The Swingline® brand is aligned with performance and Optima™ staplers have quickly become the popular choice for office professionals, administrative assistants, small business owners and others who rely on their staplers for jam-free performance, adaptable product features and ergonomic comfort. Consumers have applauded the unique design and feel of the product.

The new Swingline® Optima™ PowerEase™ Stapler and lightweight plastic Swingline® PowerEase™ Stapler take stapling to a new level of performance and ease. Their patented reduced force technology reduces operating force by up to 70 percent, taking the frustration out of stapling. Loading staples is also easier with the addition of the innovative QuickLoad™ magazine system, which loads at the front of the stapler.

Such a large number of Americans dread the arrival of tax forms in their mail boxes during the last week of December and first week of January that it creates a national wave of headaches, anxiety, sleeplessness and indigestion. Some 44 percent of Americans are unprepared to pay those taxes, exacerbating the physical problems. Even 49 percent of accountants get headaches on the job, primarily from disorganized clients, according to one aspirin maker.
