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 we have once again 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.

This holiday season, there are holiday sales circulars from nine 
chain stores on NFB-NEWSLINE on a temporary basis, as we did last 
year. 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, 2014. 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 nine retailers come from Giant 
Food, Home Depot, Kohls, Publix, Sears, Staples, Toys R Us, 
Walgreens, and Wal-Mart.

These holiday 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.

Do you find these ads useful? In order to make weekly advertisements 
from these stores permanent, we need your assistance. Here is how you can help:

1)Call or email us. Your testimonials can help us identify which 
store ads are most helpful and useful, and how we can make them 
better. They can also be very persuasive when speaking with retailers 
who might be interested in sponsoring this service year round.

2)Know someone who might be helpful? 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 may call our comment line at 410-505-5896 to leave us a voice 
message, or send an e-mail to nfbnewsline at nfb.org. We look forward to 
hearing from you about how you use this holiday ad service, and if 
you have suggestions, or have contacts with any of these corporations for us.

Thank you for using NFB-NEWSLINE and Happy Holidays to you all!
