Email newsletters are sent on Sundays and Thursdays. Dedicated and semi-dedicated email editorials are sent on Tuesdays.

What's the difference between boosting and the local spotlight emails?

A boosted activity is guaranteed placement ($50 per 10,000) in one of our upcoming Thursday or Sunday newsletters. Boosted activities are displayed as text links that list your activity name, business name, and ages served. For in-person activities, emails are geo-targeted up to a 20 mile radius.
