**Possible $5 credit for Omaha World Herald online

Yesterday in the Omaha World Herald (the local newspaper) there was an article that I wanted to have my parents read. However, they live across the country. I learned to access the articles online you have to buy today's online paper for $0.75. I told my mom she should pay the money and read this article, so she did, but in the process, she discovered a pretty great deal.

When you sign up for a new account on the Omaha.com website when you sign up for a new account, evidently they credit you with $5! So, my mom actually did not pay for today's paper at all. She actually has a $4.25 credit in her account now after getting yesterday's paper. So, if you want to read the online version of the Omaha World Herald for any reason coming up, you might want to get a new account on the website now so you can get the credit. Who know how long that promotion will last!

Click on this link. Once you get there scroll down about half way and on the right you will see "Today's E edition." You need to click on the link for "buy today's e edition" then you will get the chance to set up an account. I could not verify whether this credit is still working this morning as I am a subscriber already, so please let me know if this works for you.
