The double pocket at the back is great for tracking bills and receipts.\n\nI highly recommend this book for anyone who wants a very hands on approach to their personal budget.I have had this machine for 6 years now.I have bought a papermate, it didnt last a year.I relaced the Papermate with another P70CM CROSSCUT PAPER SHREDDER .\nYou wont be disapointed !I just purchased this in store for the online price. I opened it in the car & within 2 minutes I was able to enter my home address and I was off.This GPS talks to you so you can just look at the road.When you get close to a turn it speaks to you again.If you miss or take a different turn it immediately gives you directions back to your destination.You can save locations and find gas stations with one simple touch.I love this item and I WILL NEVER BE LOST AGAIN!!!!Purchased this chair about 4 months ago.The "leather" is already torn around the edge of the seat cushion from hitting the drawer on my desk - I have never had this problem with other chairs at the same desk.

We have always had good luck with our Swingline staplers so when we needed more, it was a no-brainer to go with Swingline. This last round (about a year and four months ago) we bought three different kinds based on our varying needs: a Swingline Light Touch; a Swingline Optima; and a Swingline Optima 40. Unfortunately, within just a few months, two of the three began to seriously fail - the Light Touch and the Optima 40. The Optima 40 started failing right away. It staples correctly about 25-40% of the time. The other percent of the time it usually only staples through the left or right side, but not both. For one set of correctly stapled documents, I usually have a whole pile of ripped out staples.... *sigh* I REALLY wanted this stapler to work because it staples so easily, through so many pages and it is light. Maybe we got a bad one, but the reviews don't look too promising and the price is terrible, IMHO. The Light Touch worked great for the first couple of months and then gradually got worse and worse and now is horrible. And this one FEELS like it should be heavy duty. It staples correctly about 20% of the time now and most of the time gets stuck in the "down" position. It also doesn't like to release the staples and lets multiple staples build up and jam. Thankfully, the original Optima has done us pretty well and I just ordered another one to replace the two defective ones above. I see the Optima comes with a warranty, which means the other two probably did too, but I didn't pay attention or keep the paperwork. I will be doing that from now on!

Spring snapped out and became stiff

By 

from Mississauga, ON, Canada

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

Ordered this product about 4 months ago and it was working very well up until today when the spring snapped out and it became very stiff. Tried putting it back but the spring would not push the staples forward, rendering this stapler useless. Do not get this stapler if you want one that will last!

Expected more

By 

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

Based on the Swingline brand and the price I paid, I expected this stapler to last my teens through their high school years. Not quite. The spring popped on this thing some time ago and I can't find any help online for this particular model. It also doesn't appear that there is a manual for self repair. Where does that little spring go, anyway?

Worked great for the first couple months...

By 

from Ithaca, NY

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

The stapler worked great for the first couple months. However, now the top doesn't stay down and it only really works when it's full of staples.

Got it out of the box, brand new and now it's broken.

By 

from Boston, MA, USA

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

I can't give this product a fair review because I didn't even have the opportunity to use it. It's broken and I can't fix it. I'm very disappointed and will not be purchasing products Swingline anymore. I really need a stapler for school work and I was looking forward to having a nice new stapler... very disappointed.

Awesome Customer Service

By 

from Silicon Valley, CA, USA

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

I wrote a bad review (now I feel real guilty), because 2 of my staplers went bad. They contacted me, responded promptly and replaced my bad ones. Shows how serious they are. I remember Microsoft asking me to send back my mice/keyboards that stopped working and once I did that, they never got back in touch or replaced them. I was sort of expecting something similar here but they responded to emails and replaced their product. Will keep buying Swingline as I think they are the best game in town. We have had some of their staplers literally for years and they just keep on working. Thanks, Sam

LightTouch staplers don't last

By 

from Silicon Valley, CA, USA

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

I have had a bunch of Swingline Regular staples for years and have been very happy. Not too long ago I bought 2 of the LightTouch versions. When I first got them, they were like heaven sent - incredibly easy to use. But then, both failed ?? A coincidence? I hope so, because one would think that Swingline that has been in this business for so long has a qualified QA team both in it's design and production. Too sad, because we were getting used to them and were on the verge of buying a lot more. ;(

Power Ease

By 

from Bowling Green, OH, USA

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

This stapler is not up to par with Swingline's quality standards... Just stopped working, the stapler will separate the staples as it "strikes" them but does not push them through even two sheets of paper. Not a high quality product at all.

Good for a year, that's it. Not worth all that $

By 

from Wilmington, DE

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

I am so disappointed in this stapler. I have arthritis in my hands and it needed so little effort to staple that I was very happy in the beginning. However, it jammed for the first time today, after a little over a year, and in trying to open it, the plastic holding the spring part in the top snapped and now it is useless. If I had known it was good for only a year I would have purchased a cheap one at the dollar store instead.

Great easy to push without a lot of strength stapler.

By 

from Salisbury, NC, USA

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

Great stapler for those who don't want to or can't put a lot of strength into stapling up to 20 sheets of paper at a time. Some staplers are difficult even with just a few sheets, but not these. So easy to use.

This little sweet stapler is a must. I purchased the current one I have about 2 years ago and couldn't live without it.

By 

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

I have had my current Light Touch for aprox two years, It hasn't ever jammed and I use it hundreds of times per day. I love the way it functions butI especially like the fact that it's purple. I have purchased at least 6 at this time for our office.

This stapler is a must have in every classroom.

By 

from Virginia Beach, VA, USA

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

I teach in a special education classroom, so we are constantly moving around stapling different types and quantities of papers together. This stapler goes through cleanly and easily. It never snags. My students often want to staple their own papers, and this lightweight stapler is sturdy enough for them but also easy for them to use whether it is in their hand or sitting on a desk. We are very pleased with our stapler.

Swingline Stapler

By 

from Dartmouth, NS, Canada

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

Not all staplers can push through paper properly, even a few pages. This one does expertly, even with extra pages and with the light touch function it becomes an almost automatic product.

Works like a charm!

By 

from Colorado Springs, CO, USA

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

I have used this stapler for over 3 years now and I have never had it jam or skip a beat. It is used daily. It fits in the hand nicely and has a cushy rubber base that is comfortable and prevents it from sliding around on slick surfaces. I have dropped it several times without incident. Great little stapler. Several of my co-workers have tried to gank it unsuccessfully. Does Swingline make stapler tracking devices??? Good job Swingline!
