Online Magazine and Direct Ship Nut Sales Extended!

Due to popular demand, we have extended the online magazine and direct ship nut sales through November 1, 2021.  Unfortunately, we are unable to extend the online girl delivery option as our nut products are already in transit.  Girls can continue to send emails to family and friends asking them for support in reaching the Fall Product goals!

And the news keeps getting better!  Girls will receive credit towards rewards for every online sale they received through November 1, 2021.  Girls will have until November 2, 2021 to make their reward choices in M2OS.
