  3. National media is also available. Consult the BoA Media Department for availabilities in other markets. 
  4. With the exception of major newspapers and other media whose inventory tends to be sold out, BoA can often open new advertising resources for you at your request, as long as you do not already have a cash history with them. 
  5. If you are now paying cash to a particular media vehicle and you want to trade with them, we can sometimes negotiate a trade increment over and above your current cash contract.
