Troops earn between and 75¢ and 95¢ per box, depending upon the average number of boxes sold per girl. She chart below for proceeds breakdown.
Older girl troops (Junior – Ambassador) may collectively choose to take an additional .05¢ per box instead of individual girl rewards, but girls will still earn patches and the higher non-LBB rewards. If the troop ended the 2021 Fall Product Program with at least a $50.00 per girl selling and met 80% of their Early Bird goal, they can also earn an additional 2¢ per box during the 2022 Cookie Program.
GSCB keeps physical custody of Juliette’s funds as it is against IRS guidelines for Juliettes to manage their funds in personal bank accounts.
Girls will earn rewards based on the number of boxes they sell. All the rewards levels are cumulative (If she earns the 100 boxes level, she will also earn all of the levels beneath that one). This year, GSCB has set up a rewards program to adapt to the changing world atmosphere with many tangible options and are hoping to bring back some in-person events at the higher rewards levels in 2022. (NOTE: Details about programming will be sent to the girls who earn those reward levels at the end of the program season. GSCB reserves the right to cancel, postpone or substitute any in-person events for virtual events as necessary).
