Troop Initial Order Bonus

The Girl Scout Cookie Program will begin on Sunday, January 26, 2020. The only way to have cookies the first day of the cookie program is to place an initial order no later than 11:59pm on Tuesday, January 7, 2020. Be a Smart Cookie and get your order in on time! Each troop will earn a Hip Bag and a Stellar Seller Kit! Also, troops will earn eligibility to participate in Case Exchange Day!

To qualify, the following must be completed by January 7, 2020:

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! More information about Case Exchange day coming soon!
