Super Bowl 50 commercials are a pretty penny

Super Bowl 50 commercials are a pretty penny

I always wanted to know how much it would cost to run a Super Bowl commercial for 30 seconds and boy did I find out quickly. According to Syracuse.com, a 30-second advertisement during this year’s game costs $5 million. That’s an average of $166,666 per second.

Last year, 30 seconds worth of commercial time in the game ran $4.5 million. The $500,000 price hike from 2014 to 2015 and then from 2015 to this season are the largest year-to-year dollar amount increases in the history of the Super Bowl.

Here is the price from every year the NFL has been around. Let’s face it the NFL does not need our money….WOW!!!!
