The booking deadline for print advertising in The Buzz is the 15th of the month prior to publication. 
Display ads and Buzzifieds are placed on a first come first served basis.



The Buzz newspaper is distributed monthly to 25,000–50,000 readers through 350–550 locations across Prince Edward Island (depending on the season) — coffee shops, grocery stores, news stands, libraries, restaurants, hotels, motels, night clubs, information centres, convenience stores, retail stores, Holland College and UPEI. 

In the tourist season this number increases as seasonal businesses open. In July and August the number of pick up points reaches 550 or more, including all PEI Provincial Visitor Information Centres and many local tourist information outlets.

October to May: 13,000–13,500 copies are printed and distributed each month.
June & September: 16,000 copies are printed and distributed each month.
July & August: 25,000 copies are printed and distributed each month.

There is a low return rate each month from most locations (0% - 2%).

Convention and meeting organizers regularly request copies for delegate packages.

The effectiveness of distribution points is monitored regularly, and adjustments are made to increase the supply to the busiest points. Distribution points are regularly re-supplied, and new locations for distribution are regularly sought out.
