Receiving Cookie Rewards

Cookie rewards, including Cookie Credits, are sent to your service unit cookie manager, who then hands them out to your troop, and then your troop will give them out to you (and your sister Girl Scouts). Cookie Credits are typically sent in April and the remaining rewards are sent in May.

A few select rewards, at the highest levels, are sent directly to girls. If you reach one of these levels, we will mail you instructions in April—and congrats on a job well done!

Cookie Credits are a special type of reward that help you further your Girl Scout experience. Going to camp this summer? Or working on a Higher Award project? Cookie Credits can help you pay for lots of exciting Girl Scout activities.

Cookie Credits can be redeemed for:

  • Council-approved day camp
  • Official service unit encampments
  • Girl Scouts River Valleys’ resident camps
  • Any Girl Scouts River Valleys’ program event
  • Girl Scout Shop and Camp Trading Post purchases
  • GSUSA membership dues and GSUSA lifetime membership
  • GSUSA destinations
  • Council-approved Girl Scout Junior, Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador extended troop trips
  • Completed Girl Scout Bronze Award projects
  • Approved and completed Girl Scout Silver and Girl Scout Gold Award projects

Girls should make decisions as to how they will use their Cookie Credits—whether for their own use or for the benefit of the troop.

Expiration

Typically, Cookie Credits expire mid-September in the year following the Cookie Program season during which they were earned. Cookie Credits being used for extended troop trips and lifetime membership have an extended expiration date for two more years. See the back of your Cookie Credits for full details.

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Cookie Credits expiration date is extended. 2020 Cookie Credits will expire on September 15, 2022.

Options for Senior & Ambassador Troops

Senior and Ambassador troops (and Senior/Ambassador Juliettes) have the choice to opt out of receiving rewards and Cookie Credits to instead earn an additional $.05 per package sold. Girls may choose to do this, because they prefer the extra proceeds to help their entire troop complete activities instead of receiving individual rewards. If your Senior or Ambassador troop wishes to do this, you must contact us before the end of the cookie sale.

This decision must be made by a troop as a whole. If your Senior or Ambassador troop chooses the opt out, the girls will still receive all patches earned, in addition to the troop receiving an additional $.05 per package sold.

Did you know?! You can also earn patches and fun items for participating in one of our Cookie Donation Programs!
