Use Verizon SuperPages.com for One-Stop Holiday Shopping; Win $25,000 in Prizes

DALLAS - The weather outside is frightful, so cozy up to your computer to get everything on friends' and families' wish lists this holiday season by visiting Verizon SuperPages.com. Plus, you can enter to win a $25,000 post-holiday relaxation grand prize and several weekly prizes.

Just click on "shopping" at SuperPages.com to search for toy stores, caterers, snowplows or airport shuttles. Print coupons and review sales circulars without having to leave your easy chair. Or search for and contact a local merchant to reserve that "gotta-have" gift before you leave home. You can even find a chimney sweep who will arrive before Santa slides down the chimney.

You can use SuperPages.com many ways to make holiday shopping easier: research products before you buy; conduct side-by-side comparisons of new products, pre-owned items and product research data all on one page; buy gifts online; and rate businesses to help others make their decisions.

"Consumers use comparison shopping sites to research products, prices and availability before they buy," said Robyn Rose, vice president of eCommerce Marketing for Verizon SuperPages.com. "Instead of spending hours fighting crowds searching for the best deal, consumers can go to SuperPages.com to find the best online and offline shopping information. Plus, SuperPages.com provides user reviews and ratings on local businesses --- something most shopping engines don't do."

To rate a business listed on SuperPages.com, simply click on "rate it;" to read about others' experiences, click on "reviews."

And since the holiday season can be a drain on both your wallet and energy, SuperPages.com is offering you a chance to win more than $25,000 in prizes to help prepare for and recover from the holidays. The "Recover from the Holidays" sweepstakes, running through Dec. 31, rewards users for conducting searches, writing reviews, referring friends to the site, printing coupons and downloading the SuperPages.com toolbar.

If you are selected in the January Grand Prize drawing, you can choose $25,000 in cash or a combination of special relaxation prizes of up to $25,000 in value including a beach vacation, a personal chef for a week, carpet cleaning, maid service for a year or a full day of spa treatments.

As a holiday treat, SuperPages.com visitors now can hear the famous New York Sun editorial "Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus," read by James Earl Jones, the third part of a series of classic readings that celebrate SuperPages.com's 10th anniversary.
