We list all posted deals, including those that have expired since some of them may still be available.
In an effort to help you find what you're looking for more quickly, we've introduced several new categories. If you're looking for a place to keep your files, try the hard drives, memory cards, and flash drives categories under storage. Our computers/hardware category now includes sections for desktops, laptops, portable devices, peripherals, and printers and embossers. There's a special cell phone category under phones. And finally, the useful websites and links we often post will now fall in our new resources category. You can view posts by category by selecting the browse link from the menu at the top of any page.
When I was a kid, I remember the thrill of receiving various braille sports cards. These cards featured the player's name and a vignet of information in braille in addition to the regular picture and info in print. While new cards are no longer made, many EBay sellers sell the ones from years past which you can view in our braille sports cards category on the Auction Gateway. While a blind child today may not recognize all of the names, they'll certainly still be thrilled to receive some of these as gifts.
