Santa delivers access to holiday shopping ads on NFB-NEWSLINE

Take Your Holiday Gift Lists and Log on to NFB-NEWSLINE to Find Some 
Holiday Shopping Deals!

As the snow starts to fall around some parts of the country, and the 
holiday shopping season begins ever earlier and with more deals than 
ever before, we here at NFB-NEWSLINE have been working to make the 
shopping season more fun and affordable for you. We are pleased to 
announce that now, for the first time, we have added sales deals and 
information from a number of chain stores from around the country to 
NFB-NEWSLINE in order to help you save some money during this buying 
and giving time of the year.

We are pleased to inform you that there are now holiday sales 
circulars from twelve chain stores on NFB-NEWSLINE on a temporary 
basis, stores we have never listed before. We see great benefit in 
providing this information to our subscribers; unfortunately this 
effort is very manually intensive and we will be only able to offer 
these newly added sales circulars on NFB-NEWSLINE until December 31, 
2013. Sale circulars for Target, which have been on NFB-NEWSLINE 
since July 2011, will continue to be offered with no service interruption.

The sales circulars of the additional twelve retailers come from 
Albertsons, Best Buy, Giant Food, Home Depot, Kohls, Kroger, Publix, 
Sears, Staples, Toys R Us, Walgreens, and Wal-Mart.

The newly added sales circulars are linked to the zip code of your 
state sponsor and cannot be changed on an individual basis as can be 
done with the Target sales circular. Therefore, the listing of the 
ten closest stores for each one of the newly added sales circulars 
may not be an exact listing of the closest ten stores to your 
location. Please note that you may experience a slight discrepancy in 
products and pricing being offered at your local store in comparison 
with the circular being presented on NFB-NEWSLINE. We encourage our 
subscribers to check with their local store to determine exact 
product availability and pricing.

To access the new holiday sales circulars on the telephone portion of 
NFB-NEWSLINE, go to the main menu to press the number five, which is 
labeled, "To read newspapers in a different state." Next, press 
option five, which is now labeled, "Holiday Shopping Advertisements" 
and follow the prompts to select your favorite retailer.

Currently sales circulars are only available on the telephone portion 
of NFB-NEWSLINE, iPhone users wishing to have the sales circulars 
displayed on their device while shopping can login to the telephone 
portion of NFB-NEWSLINE, find the retailer of their choice and then, 
while listening to a section of interest, press the pound nine key 
combination to have that section of the circular e-mailed to them.

We encourage all of you to contact us to let us know how you used 
these new ads and whether you found them to be helpful. We would like 
to make most of the weekly advertisements from all these stores 
permanent, and we need your input. Your testimonials can help us 
identify which store ads are most helpful and useful, and how we can 
make them better. Please also let us know if you have contacts or 
connections with any managerial level staff members at any of these 
retailers so we can make an attempt to permanently carry their 
circular on NFB-NEWSLINE. You can keep us informed by calling our 
comment line at 410-505-5896 to leave us a voice message, or send an 
e-mail to <mailto:nfbnewsline at nfb.org>nfbnewsline at nfb.org. We look 
forward to hearing from you about how you use this new service, and 
if you have suggestions, or have contacts with any of these 
corporations for us.
