Popcorn sale continues

Scouts can continue fundraising while earning Double Reward Points

Holiday product offers expanded for limited time; More than $102,000 sold online so far in 2020

The annual Scouting Popcorn Sale continues with online Direct Sales, where customers can make a purchase and have the product shipped directly to them, with the Scout’s unit receiving credit and the Scout receiving double the Trail’s End Rewards for each sale.

For Scouts and parents, continue to share out your Scout’s “Scout Code” to all your friends, families and neighbors and ask them to support your Scouting Adventure so you are prepared to continue your journey in 2021. Customers go to www.Trails-End.com/store, where they can enter your Scout Code and purchase products direct from the Scout. The average online sale is approximately $65 and the cost of shipping can’t be beat, unless you take advantage of one of the frequent FREE SHIPPING offerings that arise regularly.

Additionally, you can take advantage and continue to promote your online sale to your neighbors with use of the “Door Hangers” available online the council webpage as a PDF and print at home. These door hangers are showing great help in supporting local Scouts in our council.

PICTURED BELOW: Most recently, a Cub Scout in Findlay reports the Door Hangers helped generate more than $400 in sales over the weekend of Oct. 23-25. Another example included shows how a Scout family created a simple flier to share the Scout’s selling efforts and included the link to purchases with his Scout Code.

There are plans for a limited supply of pre-printed door hangers to be made available at the Findlay Service Center on a first-come, first-serve bases. Keep an eye out on the council popcorn page, social media or emails for information.

LIMITED TIME - Holiday Popcorn Products that include Chocolatey Caramel Crunch Tin, Peppermint Bark, Chocolate Lover's Tin, Frosted Snowflake Pretzels and a Happy Holidays Bundle with Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel, Peppermint Bark, and Frosted Snowflake Pretzels. All are available online direct while supplies last.

For Scout groups just beginning to meet again, this is a perfect way to grow your unit’s fundraiser with a no-touch popcorn sale. The online platform allows for purchases to be shipped directly to the customers without the unit popcorn kernel needing to touch the items, as well as it takes care of collecting the payment and the funds go directly into the unit’s account on Trail’s End’s site until you’re ready to end your efforts.

For new Scouts and families to Scouting, you too can continue selling and earn rewards like all the other Scouts. If you’d like to learn more, CLICK HERE for some highlights to how the popcorn sale works.

This year, the sale did not end with Order No. 2 (formerly known as Take Order). The submission of Order No. 2 was necessary to ensure delivery of product back locally in order to get to your customers by the holidays.

Good luck with the continued success of selling popcorn online as it is paying off for so many Black Swamp Area Council Scout groups this year. Currently, more than $102,000 has been sold online direct in our council. Last year, there was only $19,500 sold online.

If you are interested in Ohio State Buckeye tins, there are some available at the council service center in Findlay. Please contact Kim Davis at kimberly.davis@scouting.org to make arrangements for pickup while supplies last. 

This tins are exclusive to Black Swamp Area Council this year. The retail price is $30 and the tin comes with Salted Caramel Popcorn.
