I said I was self employed. That seemed to work.

it says you have to purchase the item. I think you are supposed to upload a shot of your receipt

The UPC (Universal Product Code) can be found in-store on the back of any Swingline or Quartet product. Write down the UPC and then enter as set out in section 3 above.

I posted this contest and couldn't see how to submit a UPC in the form to post a new contest.
I have the following UPC's from the Swingline website:

Rio Red Desktop Stapler: 074711747363
Thermal Laminator: 033816701854
Compact Elec. Pencil Sharpener: 074711299657

As for the "Company" field, i used the company i work for. It isn't an eligibility requirement to be the owner of a company, just a field that is mandatory to submit the form.

I won the last swingline contest and FYI - they took 2 months after the close date of the contest to notify me, I did NOT need a receipt or proof of purchase, and once they notified me, it was very quick getting the prize :)
