MagNut - Fall Product Program

MagNut - which stands for magazines, nuts and candy - is a great way to help your Girl Scout fund the fun she'll have this year. Whether she's in a troop or an Indie Girl Scout, she can participate online, in-person (or both!) to reach her goals. The more ways she participates, the more funds she has for her Girl Scout adventures!

MagNut comes at the perfect time of year, since the products make fantastic stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for family, friends, teachers, neighbors and anyone else on your list.

The 2018 MagNut program will be October 1, 2018.
Stay tuned for more details!

How it Works

Girls and troops can pick the participation option that works best for them!

1. Online. Activate your Girl Scout's personal online sales site and work with her to set her goals and email friends and family. Share her page on Facebook to ask friends and family far and wide to renew magazines or buy a great holiday gift. Or, text a shopping link too! Payment is taken by credit card at the time of the order and products are shipped directly to the customer, so you have no money to collect or products to deliver. And troops earn 2% more with online sales (17% instead of 15% in proceeds)! Take online orders through Nov. 16.  

2. In Person. Take the traditional route and help your Girl Scout go door-to-door in your neighborhood, ask friends where you worship and family to help her reach her goal. (Payment for magazines is due when ordered. Nuts & candy payments are collected when she delivers the product.) Customers can also help your Girl Scout send honey roasted peanuts to the military at-home and overseas by adding a donation to Operation: Sweet Appreciation on their order! Take in-person orders until Oct. 21. Product will be delivered the week of Nov. 12.

3. Both: Mix it up and ask a few neighbors in person, connect with Grandma in another state through Facebook, and text your BFF. 

Product Offerings

Customers can choose from a variety of great snacks that are perfect for gifts or just to enjoy. They can also order or renew their favorite magazines and order personalized photo keepsakes. 

Program Benefits

Five Skills and Online Learning

Like the Cookie Program, the MagNut Program helps girls to develop five skills they'll use throughout their lives, including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. 

Girls also learn online business skills by setting up their own personalized online sales sites, promoting it to family and friends, and tracking their goals online. 

Troop Proceeds
Troops receive 15 percent of all sales, which totaled more than $300,000 last year! Council proceeds are used to subsidize programs and services for our members and maintain our beautiful camps. Plus troops receive an additional 2 percent in troop proceeds for online magazine/photo keepsake, nuts and candy orders.

Girl Scout Bucks and Recognitions
Girls can earn fun Recognitions or can opt for Girl Scout Bucks that may be used for GSWPA camps and programs, service unit-sponsored day camps, Council Shops and Girl Scout registration fees. Girl Scout Bucks earned through Magnut DOUBLE in value when used toward GSWPA-sponsored camps.

Any girl achieving Super Seller status by selling $1,000+ in products will also receive an invitation to the exclusive Super Seller party in the spring and a special patch!

Operation: Sweet Appreciation

Help GSWPA send Honey Roasted Peanuts to our military at-home and overseas by donating to Operation: Sweet Appreciation (and encouraging others to do the same).
