Are the initial order bonus rewards cumulative from 80% to 90%?
Are both Digital Cookie and in-hand sales counted toward rewards?
Or are these rewards just for in-hand?
Gift of Caring and Digital Cookie sales, along with Cookies In
Hand and both sales, all count toward Girl Rewards.
How are proceeds determined?
Troop proceeds are based on the total number of
boxes sold by a troop divided by the number of girls participating in
the sale. This will be the troop’s Per Girl Average (PGA). Troop
Proceeds are based on the PGA. Your PGA will not be impacted by those
girls who are listed in eBudde, but do not participate in the sale (as
long as no entries have been made under that girl). We have outlined
your earnings below:
1-199 PGA — 50¢ per box
200-299 PGA —
60¢ per box
300-399 PGA — 70¢ per box
400+ PGA — 85¢ per
PGA may fluctuate during the program, so please pay special
attention to the amount owed to council on your Sales Report located

Who receives the proceeds from the cookie program?
All proceeds stay within the council to support
programs and opportunities for girls. A cookie purchase not only
supports girls’ success, but helps them find the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter,
Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ within to do amazing things for
themselves and for their communities.
Who is eligible to opt out of receiving girl rewards? What are the
advantages and what patches/rewards are the girls eligible to receive?
Cadette, Senior and Ambassador troops may opt out of receiving girl rewards and instead
receive an additional 5 cents per box of cookies sold. The decision to
opt out must be unanimous among troop members; each girl must sign the
Opt Out Consent Form. The form must be submitted to the CPSM prior
to the Jan. 10 initial order deadline. Girls in troops that opt
out are eligible to receive certain patches if they meet the
individual patch requirements: 2018 Bar Patch, Gift of Caring and/or
Cookie Theme patch.
When will troops receive their proceeds?
Troops receive their proceeds throughout the program as they
take payment for cookies and make deposits to GSGC. Proceeds are based
on the sales of each girl participating in the cookie program. Total
troop proceeds are listed on the Sales Report in eBudde; this also
shows council proceeds that should be deposited to the appropriate
bank listed on your deposit slips. Make sure to only use the deposit
you receive at initial order pickup; don't use another troop's deposit
slips or counter deposit slips. Troop proceeds can vary throughout the
program, so pay close attached to the sales report and ensure you're
making the correct deposits.
When will troops receive the profit for online sales?
Sales through Digital Cookie are credited to the girls in
eBudde immediately following an approved online transaction. Troop
proceeds begin to calculate after the troop’s initial starting order
is submitted and continue to update as additional cookies are
allocated to the girls.
How do Digital Cookie sales count toward each girl's rewards?
Digital Cookie orders count toward a girl's total sales the
same as Cookies in Hand and booth sales.
Will eBudde automatically calculate each girl's Digital Cookie
sales on the Rewards tab?
Yes, eBudde will consider all digital sales when calculating a
girl's earned rewards.
When will girls receive their rewards?
Girl rewards are shipped to the communities in April. The CPSM
will notify troops when rewards are available for pickup. Any girl
rewards not picked up from the CPSM by June 30 will be forfeited.
Are earned camp credits transferable?
Yes, girls may transfer earned camp credit to any registered
Can girls use camp credit toward Smile Camp?
