    The Girl Scout Fall Product Sale Program is a quick and easy way for troops to earn 20% on all fall sale items sold in person and online:  nuts and chocolates, magazines, and more.  Additional products available online only include the new designer tumblers, stainless steel water bottles, and a variety of organic veggies. The sale runs from October 2 to 22.

      Troops that participate in both the fall sale and cookie sale programs qualify for the Troop Bonus as long as at least two girls participate in both the fall and cookie sales and the troop has paid in full by the deadlines at the end of each sale.  The Troop Bonus is an additional .03 cents earned per package of cookies sold. These cents add up quickly so plan now to earn the Troop Bonus for some additional earnings for your troop.
