Also, troops will earn eligibility to participate in Case Exchange Day!

To qualify, the following must be completed by January 8, 2019:

Initial Order Bonus troops will have the option to participate in a special Case Exchange Day. So if the variety mix isn’t just right, Initial Order Bonus troops can exchange full cases for a different variety. So if you accidentally order too many Shortbread, you can swap them for Thin Mints! Case Exchange Day information will be coming soon. Some limitations apply:

  • Quantities are limited to stock on hand and exchanged first come, first served.
  • Troops may exchange up to 50% of any variety from their Initial Order in full cases only.
  • No mixed cases accepted.
  • Cases must be unopened and in good condition.
  • Cookies picked-up at Cupboards or Cookie Jars and Gluten Free cookies are not included in the Case Exchange Day Bonus.
