    I'm sort of wondering the same thing, what days are best? Weekends/Weekday?

    Do you put them on the mailbox, door, doorknob, etc.

    What time? Right before/After the mail comes?

    I passed out several today- I went quickly hitting close by neighborhoods putting in ALL newspaper boxes @ the road. The yards that really needed attention I would roll-up and put it at the doorknob, if they had no newspaper box. Kind of skipping several I know, but by not leaving the truck, I passed out 100 in 45 min (in 3 different neighborhoods)

    **Don't stick in mailbox** They can pickup each one and charge postage for each, or just press federal charges against you. Either way wouldn't be fun!!

    Does anyone bag and throw them like a newspaper? What else would you put in them besides rocks for weight?

    around here we have alot of townhouses that have grouped mailboxs. What do you think about having business card sized magnets on each mailbox door. That way when they take them off they will put them on their fridges and see it all the time.

    i put the flyer and a rock inside a ziploc bag. Then drive around at night and throw them besides mailboxes. i've passed out about 500 in an hour.

    Do you get "ok" returns using the rocks.

    Depends on the cost of Magnets. I don't think the return would offset the cost.

    Who would deliver their own flyers when you could have them distributed for $50 a thousand?
