ABOUT THE BLUFFTON ICON

Many Icon classified ads are FREE including Help Wanted. We only charge for:

  • Properties for sale or for rent
  • Vehicles for sale
  • Business services

Our rates for those are only $10 for the first 10 days and $1 for each additional day, for ads of 50 words or less. We charge for those ads because we have realtors, auto dealers, and businesses who are paying customers.
