Snacks & Magazines Order Deadlines
See the schedule below on the deadlines for users to enter snack order card sales into M2OS.
Note: users are locked out of entering orders once their deadline has passed. If you are entering the snack order card sales for families, ask that they email or text you a picture of the Girl Scouts snack order card. It’s a great backup in case the order card gets misplaced between now and when the snacks arrive in November.
No late orders can be accepted after the Service Unit order entry deadline has passed. Note: Ordering for online snacks and magazines will end on October 29 at 11:59 p.m. This will give customers one final chance to complete their online orders, troops the opportunity to earn additional proceeds, and Girl Scouts to receive credit towards their rewards. Nothing needs to be submitted for online snack or magazine orders. These orders are already credited to the girl and the troop at the time of purchase.
Important update: If a Girl Scout is not listed in M2OS, you must contact River Valleys to have the Girl Scout added to the system. Once they are added, you will be able to add the Girl Scouts in-person snack order.
Review our M2OS Quick Tips Guide for Troops for help entering snack order card sales and/or girl rewards. If you need any assistance, reach out to your Service Unit Fall Product Manager or contact Girl Scouts River Valleys by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-845-0787.
Entering Girl Reward Choices
Families and troops can make reward choices until October 29 at 11:59 p.m. This deadline only applies to Girl Scouts that reach a sales level where there is a choice between an item and Fall FUNds. After October 29, if a selection is not made, the Girl Scout will be defaulted to Fall FUNds.
Reminder: Service Unit volunteers cannot make reward choices for Girl Scouts.
When entering the snack order card sales, girl rewards will not automatically update. These entries are updated every hour on the hour, so you may have to enter the snack order card sales and then return later to enter the reward selections. Don’t worry, M2OS will also send a helpful reminder to families to make a choice, if needed.
Wild About Snacks & Magazines Bonus Reward
For Girl Scouts that earned our bonus reward of the Olive the Ocelot sticker pack, remember this item will not appear in M2OS. We’ll be drawing for the bonus prizes (beanie caps featuring Bubbles the Axolotl) soon and, connect with the winners by email.
Troop Fall Product Volunteers will receive an email by November 1 with the information on how you can get early access to purchase tickets for Girl Scout Day at the Minnesota Wild hockey game on January 15. Attendees will receive an exclusive patch, plus the opportunity for an on-ice photo after the game.
Now is a great time to reach out to your troops to see if they need any assistance wrapping up their sale. Remind them of the order entry timeline. Send a quick email, text, or post on your Service Unit Facebook page or in Rallyhood.
It’s also a good idea to log into M2OS to verify that troops are entering orders in the system. For a quick way to review troop orders, go to the Reports tab on your Service Unit dashboard. You can scroll through the troops or print, download, or export a report at the bottom of the page. If you notice a participating troop has not entered any sales, reach out to the troop volunteer with a friendly reminder of the deadline.
Entering Late Snack Orders
Remember that you can enter late snack orders for troops in your Service Unit from October 28 through October 29 at 11:59 p.m. Troops and Girl Scouts can make reward choices until that time, but you will not be able to enter in reward selections for Girl Scouts who are missing the choice between an item or Fall FUNds. No late snack orders or reward orders can be accepted if these deadlines are missed.
Review the M2OS Guide Tips Guide for Service Units for details on how to enter snack order card sales.
If you need any assistance, please reach out to the Product Program Team by email at email@example.com or call 800-845-0787.
