Get Your Digital Cookie On!

It’s not too late to get started with Digital Cookie and reach your goals! Girls can set up their Digital Cookie site at any time and continue selling online through March 25. Girl Delivery is available through January 29, after which this feature will be turned off by council and customers will only see the option to ship or donate cookies. Please work closely with your Cookie Troop Coordinator and Troop Leader to be sure that all orders are received by the January 30 deadline for the troop’s Initial Order.

Important: Parents must approve any pending orders in Digital Cookie prior to the troop submitting their Initial Order, because these cookies will need to be added to the troop order.

Remember, girls continue selling after the January 30 deadline with Goal Getter Order Cards, at booth sales (which begin on February 15), and through Digital Cookie.
