What You Need to Know About
Super Bowl Retail Promotions
• Copyright restraints keep retailers from promoting the Super Bowl
BY NAME. Most make general references to “the big game”.
• Drug Chains are moving away from a big Super Bowl push
CVS did not even mention it on their front cover.
• Mass Retailers are running multiple pages of electronics
(especially TVs) and food.
• Other brands decide to go all in on FSI coupons. Newman’s
Own, Velveeta run their most of their coupons during Super Bowl
week.
• Super Bowl TV ads have become better coordinated with retail
promotions. Top Super Bowl Commercial Brands are matching
the spending with additional circular advertising.
• Retailers downplay their private brands for the Super Bowl. Super
Bowl week traditionally ranks dead last in private brand ad
support.

Platter Wars – How Supermarkets Differentiate
Super Bowl party platters allow supermarkets to feature their deli &
produce departments to create a differential advantage vs. mass
and drug competitors selling food.
16
Betting it All on Super Bowl FSIs
For smaller brands, a successful FSI can make or break
their year. Free standing inserts (FSIs) allow a brand to
stand out and differentiate with unique attributes, recipes
and coupons.
32% of Newman’s Own
annual FSI’s occurred the
week of the Super Bowl
Ragu, Dannon Oikos, and
Speed Stick, each see
significant portions of their
annual ads during the
super bowl week.
24% of Axe’s annual
FSI’s occurred the week
of the Super Bowl

demand for Pre-Super Bowl circular ads creates less room for store
brands.
