Our Online Magazine Sales have grown each year to help our school raise funds. Last year, and for the first time, online sales exceeded 50% of your total fundraiser! Thank you for looking at this method of making your purchases. Of course, you can still order from the catalog which will be available this summer even before our kickoff assembly on Friday, September 5th. Online purchases save time for our volunteers as internet orders are processed with little effort on our part. In addition, online orders tend to be several times more accurate with regard to correct addresses and magazine code number clarity and the magazines arrive to you quicker!
You may start your purchasing and selling early. Every magazine sold online beginning July 1st, will be counted for prizes for your student. Online sales will always count for prizes as long as they arrive before our sale concludes. Note: The daily cutoff for prize credit online is 8AM on the morning of any collection day. Online sales arriving after the sale ends will not count towards prizes.
Your student can now start qualifying for prizes through this “early bird” selling period. Last year, families who used the suggested sales strategy below found selling magazines easier and those students generally sold more than anyone else with less effort. Here are some important tips:
- When you enter the site, you will be asked for an account number. Our number is 2600526 (Hint: Write this number down)
- Please register. Registration makes it clear when assigning prize and sales credit to a particular student. The student ID# given at registration is a failsafe for sales credit.
- Sending e-mails to family friends and relatives through GAO’s secure site has proven to be the easiest way to increase sales. A personalized e-mail is sent to the recipients that you designate and puts them into our school’s selling site. If you registered, all sales made by anyone to whom you sent the e-mail will count as prize and sales credit for your son or daughter.
- And, don’t forget, you can shop in this site. Again, your purchases are assigned to your son or daughter for prize and sales credit.
NOTE: Several Top Online Summer Sellers will be recognized at our kickoff assemblies and play a game on stage to win prizes.
