Scheduled front, inside front, inside rear and rear covers are subject to pre-emption by gate folds or wrap-arounds.

Co-op Advertising

Co-op advertising consists of programs established by manufacturers to encourage local retailers to advertise and sell their products or services. Many retailers are entitled to co-op funds, covering from 25% to 100% of their cost, when they advertise brand name merchandise in the Yorktown PennySaver.

Co-op plans vary depending upon the manufacturer. For additional information about co-op advertising, call the Yorktown PennySaver's Display Advertising Department at 914 962-3871.

Credit Policy

New accounts are accepted on a prepaid basis until credit is established. Credit may be established by filing a credit application and submitting to the necessary credit check. A finance charge will be applied to accounts which are more than thirty days past due and advertising will not be accepted until payment is made unless special credit arrangements have been made. Customers are welcome to charge their ads on either MasterCard, Visa or American Express. For regular accounts, payment is due as stated on bill. Rates are non-commissionable. Any fees incurred by sending an account to a collection agency will be the responsibility of the customer. All returned checks will be subject to a $25.00 Service Charge.

Authorization to Run

All ads must have a signed Advertising Agreement Authorization for the ad to run.


Credit for errors will only be given for space involved. The publisher shall not be liable for a failure to insert any advertisement beyond cost of actual space occupied. Should an ad be omitted, advertisers are entitled to a choice of a credit or to have the ad run in the next issue. No credits will be issued on ads more than one week old. For advertisements appearing over consecutive weeks, the publisher will not be held responsible for any errors beyond the first date of publication. We will not be responsible for any errors in a display ad taken over the telephone. If there is any question about an ad, please call the advertising department immediately.

Throughout the year the Yorktown PennySaver publishes timely special sections that showcase advertisers' products or services. Please consult your sales representative or the display advertising department to confirm dates and reserve space.

Due to the negative impact of the pandemic on small business we have temporarily adjusted our distribution schedule to a variable model based on Advertiser demand. Pennysaver is still published weekly with reduced mailed circulation and a greater emphasis on digital and drop distribution. Ask your account rep for additional details.
