Frequently Asked Questions

What's new in 2018?
  • We have changed the name of our cookie credits to Dough-Si-Dough.
  • Cookies for March Booth sales and reservations for council-sponsored mall booth sites will be done in eBudde through the “Pre-Season 2017” in the season dropdown tab.
  • Toffee-Tastics and S’Mores will be available for March booth sales.
Why should a girl and/or a troop participate?
  • Troops earn profit on each box of cookies sold.  This money will increase the troop treasury, supplementing dues.  The profits can be used to fund bigger and better troop activities than just dues would provide.
  • Girls can earn a variety of rewards, which are displayed on the order card or they can choose Dough-Si-Dough instead of most rewards.
  • Girls develop many life skills by participating – setting goals, teamwork, money management, presentation skills and people skills. 
  • Girls have FUN!
What can a troop earn?
  • Troops earn $.70 per box of cookies sold.  If the troop has a PGA (per girl average) of 110 boxes on their Initial Order, every box will earn $.75 per box profit.
Why do a booth sale?
  • Booth sales teach and reinforce skills like presentation, people skills, and money management.
  • Booths are fun for girls.
  • Booths are an additional way to add profit to your treasury.
  • Many people never have a girl come to their door with an order card and booths are a great way to reach these people – they are a win/win!
