While Pack 455 rocks, rocking isn't free. Each fall, two fundraising opportunities are offered that run concurrently: popcorn and wreaths. The popcorn sale is run through the Trails End App and Website (remember that we are Northern Star Council-->District O-->Pack 9455) while the evergreen sale runs on paper.
Your scout receives 30% of the value of their sales into their "Scout Account". This money can be used to pay dues (Pack or Council BSA fees), cover camping costs, or participate in Northern Star Council events.

Three Ways to Sell!
All scouts are required to have an account with Trails-End. BSA is highly encouraging scouts to use the app or website for recording sales rather than the order form. Sales using Credit Cards are preferred and are accepted using the app at no additional fee. You don’t have to sell using the app or website, but your scout must have an account. See www.trails-end.com to register. More information is located at www.trails-end.com, www.buyscoutpopcorn.com, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Register at www.trails-end.com and share your scout’s link with friends and family. Great option with little to no contact. Larger product variety and scouts earn DOUBLE Reward Points. When the products are ordered, they will be delivered directly to their house! There will be certain weekends with Free Shipping to keep an eye out for!

Sign out products so you can deliver the product at the time of the sale… no need to return to the deliver the product. Better yet, go back towards the end of the sale period. There’s good chance they finished their popcorn and may want to buy more!
Use the app as you make the sale. Scouts will typically collect cash or check at time of sale. Return and deliver the product at the end of the sale (November). If you use the app and the customer pays by credit card, the scout earns 1.5X Reward Points!
