Selling Scout Fair Coupon Books is a brilliant way for units to raise money and prepare Scouts to earn their own way! The Scout Fair Coupon Book offers great savings for the buyer, while Scouts earn commissions for every $10 Coupon Book sold. Buyers support the Scouting program while receiving hundreds of dollars in valuable savings from partners such as Kroger, Buffalo Wild Wings, Luby's, Fuddruckers, the Houston Astros and many more. All units receive a 30% base commission for each $10 Scout Fair Coupon Book sold, for funds turned in on or before May 6, 2017. Participate at Scout Fair, as either a service unit or booth participant, and earn an additional 10% commission. Service units must have a minimum of 50% of their registered youth participating to receive the additional commission. Units can also take advantage of early bird turn-in dates offering 5%, 3% and 1% additional bonus commissions. In addition, your Scouts will qualify for prizes once they sell 15 Coupon Books. Please refer to the Scout Fair prize brochure for prizes and sales levels.

Coupon Book Store Front Selling
Coupon Book booths are direct sales opportunities which generally are located at retail stores, businesses, organization sponsored events, farmers markets, sporting events, or parking lots where Boy Scout unit’s have permission to set up a table/booth to sell Scout Fair to the public. Booth sales are a joint responsibility; parents and Scouts should be included in planning, decision-making, and participation. Scout Fair Coupon Book booths also help Scouts expand their sale goals and encourage them to go beyond friends and family for making sales. Before contacting a business, read the Coupon Book booth selling guidelines at businesses.
Kroger allows units to sell Scout Fair Coupon Books in front of their stores. Units must register to reserve a time and location. Kroger booth registration will open on January 29, 2017. The link will be posted at 2:00 pm on our council Facebook page.
