There are two different ways to earn Cookie Credits: Standard Cookie Credits and Goal Getter Enhanced Cookie Credits. Girls can earn 75 Standard Cookie Credits for every 300 boxes of GS Cookies that they sell. They can be used to acquire most items in the Girl Scouts of Nassau County GS Shop, Troop events/trips, Council sponsored events/trips. and annual registration fees. To redeem your Standard Cookie Credits, fill out the Cookie Credit Redemption Form and return it to the Girl Scouts of Nassau County Service Center.
The New Goal Getter Enhanced Cookie Credit Options were created to replace “Funding your Fun” and to provide a Reward program for individually registered girls who are not in Troops. Follow the green links for more information on Goal Getter Enhanced Cookie Credits for girls in Troops or for more information on Goal Getter Enhanced Cookie Credits for girls that are registered as individuals.
Don't let your Cookie Credits expire, use them to register for any Girl Scout Program.

If it's a Council run event, the credits will be applied directly, if it's a Possibilities or other Troop Trip, a check will be mailed to the Troop Leader.
