How much does a Super Bowl ad cost in 2024?

Because of how many people watch the event every year, with an estimated 100 million people watching the 2023 Super Bowl, it has become a large deal for companies to purchase one of the rare advertisement slots.

“Even though a Super Bowl advertising campaign might not pay immediately in hard dollars and cents, if a business can afford to produce one of these stellar spots, they stand to earn new customers and build awareness on a scale unmatched by other outlets,” Peter Koeppel, founder and president of marketing agency Koeppel Direct said in 2019.
