Cookie Dough Redemption Form

What is Cookie Dough?

Cookie Dough is credit that may be earned by Girl Scouts during the annual Cookie and Candy, Nut & Magazine Programs. Girls choose to earn “Dough” in lieu of another recognition item. Check your order card insert for more information on the amounts of Cookie Dough you can earn.

Cookie Dough is issued independently by each council and cannot be transferred to other councils. Cookie Dough earned at other councils cannot be accepted for redemption by GSKSMO.

Girls who earn Cookie Dough from the Candy Program will receive a letter in November. Girls earning Cookie Dough from the Cookie Program will receive a postcard stating their amount earned in April. Cookie Dough expires on September 30 following the program.

Here's how you can use Cookie Dough:

Girl Scout Shop Purchases

Cookie Dough can be redeemed for in-store purchases at our council store, located at our headquarters in Kansas City. View store hours

Girls (and their parent/caregivers) can redeem their Dough when they check out; simply tell the cashier the girl’s name. Balances left will be left on account and cannot be redeemed for cash. Troop leaders can shop with the girl’s Cookie Dough if the troop leader has possession of the postcard mailed to the girl. If the parent has lost the card we can provide a replacement (request must be emailed at least one business day in advance by emailing us). The leader must have that card in possession to use the Dough. This provides us proof of permission for use.

Cookie Dough can also be used in our online shop however a special code is needed. Complete the Cookie Dough Redemption Form to request a code. It may take up to four weeks to receive your code and codes expire September 30. Once you request the online code you can no longer use Cookie Dough in the GSKSMO store. Refunds are not available. As with most online shopping, shipping and handling fees may apply.
