Fall Product Sales Program 2012
The Fall Product Sales Program begins October 1 and ends October 28, 2012.
The program includes the QSP "Be A Reader" and the Nut/Candy Program.
This is a family and friends program. Your Girl Scout will be taking orders for nuts/candy and magazines directly from your family members and friends. The combined QSP/Nut Program will provide your Girl Scout’s troop funds for more activities and trips during the first half of the Girl Scout year.
The Be A Reader Booklet and online learning activities designed to enhance the troop program activity pieces can be found at

What is the QSP Program?
QSP, a division of Great American Opportunities, sponsors a Girl Scout money earning program that promotes literacy through the sale of magazine subscriptions. 45% of the value of each order is retained by GSCB and helps to subsidize Girl Scout programs. 15% or 20% of each order stays with the troops for troop activities. All orders are backed by a guarantee of service by QSP. Customers do not become part of a mailing list through QSP. Any new magazine subscriptions will start 12 - 14 weeks after the orders are processed in November.
Over 1,000 magazine titles are offered this year, including dozens of children's magazines and over 80 digital magazines. Some magazine subscriptions offer a free gift or a second year’s subscription for free. Click here to order magazines online! (Proceeds from online orders will benefit the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay.)
How it works:
Ordering/Renewing your family and friends’ favorite magazines.
Your Girl Scout contacts family and friends asking them to renew or subscribe to their favorite magazines. She also has the option to contact family and friends via email through QSP’s online magazine ordering system. Your Girl Scout will earn troop proceeds and rewards for each subscription purchased.
Friendly Referrals using Address Adventure
Your Girl Scout can ask family and friends living in other communities to help support Girl Scouts by completing the special referral coupons in the mail-out booklets. QSP will mail information which shows them how to purchase their favorite publications at the same low prices. Your Girl Scout will earn the "Wave Patch" for 10 address coupons. The troop will earn 30¢ per coupon. QSP does not database these addresses, so these contacts do not become part of a mailing list.
What is the Nut/Candy program?
The sale of nuts and candy is a component of the Fall Product Sales Program. Girl Scouts will be able to offer customers the option to purchase a wide range of delicious and attractively packaged nuts and candy at affordable prices. This is a program to share with your family and friends. Products will arrive in the service unit between December 4-6, since the products will be delivered prior to the holidays and make excellent, low cost gifts!
