Case Exchange Day Bonu$

Troop Case Exchange Day

Bonus troops will have the option to participate in a special CASE EXCHANGE DAY+. So if the variety mix isn’t just right, 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! Some limitations apply.

+Case Exchange day is March 1, 2017 at the Fullerton Warehouse only. 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. Cases must be in good condition. No mixed cases accepted. Cookies picked-up at Cupboards/Jars or Gluten Free cookies are not included in the Case Exchange Day BONUS.

March 1, 2017

9:00am – 2:00pm

Berger Transfer & Storage

501 Burning Tree Rd, Fullerton, CA 92833

First come, first served.  Lines will be long in the morning.

The Cookie Swap Site is LIVE!

The Cookie Swap Website allows troops to facilitate exchanges of extra cookies. Instead of placing an order with a cookie warehouse, cupboard or jar, Girl Scouts can help out their sister troops by participating in a cookie “swap.”

To login to the Cookie Swap site use the current email that you have in Snap (found by going to “My Account” and “Edit Profile”) and Volunteer Network password. If you are unable to login, please contact your Service Unit Cookie Manager.

Cancel Unwanted Booth Sales in Snap!

If your troop has booked booth sales in Snap that you have decided not to attend, troops must cancel unwanted booth sales in the Snap Booth Scheduler at least 24 hours in advance. We have many troops still looking to sign up for booth sales and they could use these valuable locations!! Plus we have received emails from frustrated customers that have used the Booth Locator website only to find no Girl Scouts at that location.

Please make the extra effort to cancel unwanted booth sales in Snap.

For directions on how to cancel booth sales in Snap please see page 28 in the pink Troop Plan Book.

Rain for the First Weekend of Booth Sales?

Rain

Booth Sales will take place rain or shine! Here are some tips for conducting Booth Sales in the rain:

  • Some locations will allow for canopies in the rain. Be sure to check the notes section in Snap for your location.
  • Keep the cookies dry!
    • Take a cooler to store the cookies in
    • Keep the cookies off the ground
    • Keep them in a wagon or cart with a tarp over the top
    • Limit the amount of cookies on the table – even if you are under cover – the wind can carry the rain
  • Post your Weather Warrior strategies on our Facebook page! @GirlScoutsOC
  • Remember that if you make it fun, the girls will have fun!
  • If you decide not to attend your booth sale, be sure to release it in Snap 24 hours in advance and let your SU Booth Sale Coordinator know! 

HAPPY BOOTH SALES!

Collect and Deposit Cookie Money Frequently

Don’t leave cookie money lying around too long. As you collect money from your parents and booth sales promptly deposit it into your Troop account before anything unfortunate can happen to it. Enter all girl payments in Snap. (Booth sale deposits cannot be entered into Snap.)

If you’re having problems collecting from parents, let your Service Unit Cookie Manager know right away. See also: Preventing debt within your troop (pg 2 of delinquency report.)

The troop should deposit sufficient funds into the troop account no later than February 21st to cover the first payment

 

Notify Council by 3PM on February 21st if troop payment amount needs to be adjusted due to insufficient funds by completing the online Payment Adjustment form.

See pages 31-34 in the pink Troop Plan Book for more information.

Troops Can Now Run Booth Sale Reports in Snap+

Run the Booked Booth Sales Summary report in SNAP and verify that your troop has been scheduled for the booth sale locations and times you received at the lottery. Report any errors to your Service Unit Booth Sale Coordinator right away. (See page 25 in the pink Troop Plan book.)

Troops may also run the Available Booth Sales Summary report in SNAP to find booth sale shifts that are still available. Booth sale locations will be identified by each Service Unit’s three-digit report code in front of the store name. Using this code will help you identify which locations belong to your Service Unit since the report will list all available locations Council-wide.

If you want to cancel or change a booth sale shift contact your Service Unit Booth Sale Coordinator. If you want to add a booth sale you will be able to do so yourself directly in SNAP beginning February 7th or 8th. February 7th for Early Access troops and February 8th for everyone else. The list of Early Access troops will be posted shortly.
