Can Girl Scout cookies be shipped out of state?

According to the Girl Scouts of Eastern and Western Iowa, Girl Scout cookies can be shipped out of state. The site says that this “allows you to support Girl Scouts around the country, not just locally.” When ordering online, however, there's a four-box minimum. The Girl Scouts also ship to Guam, Puerto Rico, and even the U.S. Virgin Islands (for an extra $5).

In the event you want boxes of Girl Scout Cookies shipped within the U.S., you’ll need to pay $12.99 when ordering 4–8 boxes or $14.99 for 9–12 boxes. Shipping isn't charged for those who are donating cookies.

Does Amazon sell Girl Scout Cookies?

While you can buy Girl Scout Cookies on Amazon, they are being sold by a third party and not the Girl Scout troops, The Strategist reported. So, although you're getting the real deal, you’re probably going to pay an inflated price.

What is the cost of a box of Girl Scout Cookies?

Girl Scout Cookies cost $5 a box or $6 for the gluten-free cookies. So, if you see someone selling them for more or they are listed on Amazon for a higher price, they likely aren't being sold directly from Girl Scouts.

Where does Girl Scout cookie sale money go?

All of the money made from selling Girl Scout cookies stays local, according to the non-profit. That means the proceeds are used to fund trips for the troops, including camping, to buy gear or supplies for members, or to support the community. Troops can also donate the money to a cause they are passionate about.
