NEW for 2019 – Scout – Designed Prize Program
Scouts can design their own prize program by selecting what they want on Amazon.com. Unit Kernels are no longer required to meet with Scouts to get their price choices, place the order (shop), or shuffle through the delivery.
Within the Amazon website adults can filter views by category, gender, age group and product rating. Scouts can find items they like and create a wish list that Amazon can save. Using the Trail’s End prize level sheet, Scouts will know what they are working towards and when they will hit their goal. Don’t worry if a Scout changes interest between August and November, they can shop again when they are ready to redeem their Amazon eGift Card. Prizes are shipped directly to the Scout’s home. Plus, families with Amazon Prime can get free 2-day shipping and many items ship free for all customers.
Units cannot opt out of the Trail’s End eGift Card program.
Amazon eGift Cards are managed and digitally redeemed by the Scout through Trail’s End using the Trail’s End App.
Note: Your Unit account must be paid in full before your Unit’s eGift Cards will be approved by Council.
2018 Proven test results: Over 5,000 Scouts sold in an incentive plan using digitally redeemed gift cards with sale growth from 3.3% to over 11.6%.
SCOUT PRIZE LEVELS
ALL SCOUTS selling at least $350 will earn an Amazon.com eGift Card.
