Smart Cooke – 3
If you still have girls missing from eBudde, please be sure to let your Volunteer Support Specialist know. It’s important to keep cookie allocations up-to-date in eBudde. Go into the Girl Orders tab and make sure you’ve marked all the cookies girls have in hand.
Need more cookies?
A few select cupboards have opened already but most will open on Feb. 4. Be sure to stay in touch with your Service Unit Cookie Manager, if there is a troop needing to transfer cookies, it’s best to take those first before ordering more from the cupboard. Remember, there are no returns – all cookies you take your troop will be responsible for selling or transferring to another troop.
Super Bowl spirit
The Denver Broncos are Super Bowl bound and we couldn’t be more excited! To celebrate Super Bowl 50, we have a free, fun patch for any Girl Scout who sells 50 (or more) packages of Girl Scout Cookies Super Bowl weekend! We’ve also increased the top prize on some of our Cookie Contests from $100 to $200 in Cookie Credits. Stay tuned to the GSCO blog for details.
Digital Cookie 2.0
Nearly 7,000 packages of cookies were ordered via Digital Cookie 2.0 on the first day of the sale! Encourage your girls to supplement their door-to-door sales with this high tech selling tool. All families should have received an invitation to register. If a parent is having technical difficulty getting the site set up visit https://digitalcookie.girlscouts.org/help-overview for tips and tutorials.
Remember that cookie orders placed via Digital Cookie 2.0 must be shipped and include a shipping fee, unless they are donated cookies. Girl Scouts of Colorado is not offering girl delivery of digital orders at this time because it’s a pre-pay system rather than a “promise” system similar to Fall Sale.
Once a girl’s Digital Cookie site is published, download the app to sell cookies on the go. With the app, you can take credit card payments for cookies to be handed to the customer. Use it at booth sales, my sites and door-to-door.
Council booths start up on Feb. 12. Don’t forget to make signs, bling your booth or check out cookie costumes from your Service Unit. Try making Girl Scout Cookie Valentine bundles – tie a 5-pack of chocolate varieties with pretty red and pink ribbon and attach a handmade paper heart and let your customers know for $20 they’ll have Valentine’s Day taken care of for their sweetheart!
