Fall Product Sale Program
The Fall Product Sale is a council-sponsored program that combines educational activities with money earning opportunities for the troops. The Fall Sale is directed toward family and friends- those closest to Girl Scouting and enables troops to earn start up money by selling magazine subscriptions as well as nuts and candy.
Thank you for your support of the girls, troops and the council by purchasing or participating in the Fall Product Sale!
Focuses on leadership, collaboration and exploring personal values through discovering, connecting and taking action to help girls explore their future potential
Online learning activities designed to enhance the troop program activity pieces
Setting goals is the key to a successful sale Troops and girls who set goals earn big. Talk about what your plans are for the fall and what the funding would be needed to make it happen. Give your girls the opportunity to fully experience Product Sale Programming and don’t skip the Goal Setting and Decision Making skill building! Fall Product isn’t as simple as saying “sell 350 boxes of cookies” since the product line is varied. But by leveraging all product options, the girls can discover, connect and take action to meet their troop’s funding needs.
As an example a Troop with 10 girls
The Fall Product Sale Program is managed in the Nut-e web based system by Troop, Service Unit and Association volunteers. It is also the system used by council to order product as well as rewards. The Service Unit Fall Product Chair will be sure the troop is provided login information. Registered girls names will be uploaded prior to the sale start date though newly registered girls can be easily added as they join your troop. Use the links below for the Troop Nut-e User manual (which is also accessible from within the system); the web link address for Nut-e as well as specifics on troop deposit procedures.
Customers Pay Up Front
When a girl sets up her online email program, she can offer nut and candy items to their family and friends that will be receiving emails. She can select all of her email contacts to receive the offer to make "Nut Promises" or just a few. Once a "Nut Promise" is placed by a customer, the Girl Scout will need to follow up to collect the payment and to deliver the products. Girls will be able to ask friends and family via email for "Promise" orders on Nuts & Candy items! Girls must collect money and deliver product, so we suggest the customer be close by!
Magazines are paid for online with a credit card and will arrive to the customer sooner than orders placed on the paper order forms.
It’s easier than you think!
Girls will receive the Online patch for entering 12 or more email addresses and earn proceeds for their troop for each magazine subscription or nut/candy order sold online. Additionally, girls will receive credit toward their incentives for online orders and “Nut Promises.” Girls can check back throughout the sale to track their progress and enter additional email addresses to meet their goals. At the end of the program, girls/parents will receive a reminder email to print the Detailed Order Report showing magazines sold online and "Nut Promises." Just turn in the Detailed Order Report to the Troop Fall Product Sale Manager along with your other orders by the troop deadline date. Detailed Order Reports will not be accepted after the deadline date so get the orders in on time for full credit!
Fall sale is an easy way for troops to earn start up funds
The troops have the opportunity to earn an additional 2% regardless if they are taking incentives or not. Troops must have an average of $125 per girl selling to earn the tiered- proceeds incentive.
Associations with a 3% increase over 2012 sales volume will receive 1% proceeds on ALL sales by Association Troops.
