Program Credit

Girl Scouts work hard to earn their program credit and there are lots of ways to use it.

Program credit is an individual reward, acknowledging your hard work and entrepreneurial success. Throughout the cookie sale program, girls practice five skills-goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics – and they decide how to run their businesses. Now they get to decide how to use their program credit!  

Check program credit balance at any time by visiting and entering card number and CVV code. 

Program Credit earned in 2022 will expire on May 1, 2023-NO EXCEPTIONS.
