The Scholastic Dollars Profit
& Rewards Program

More reading for your students. More rewards for your school.

Bringing joy to your students and raising funds for your school are excellent rewards! But you can extend the benefits of hosting a Scholastic Book Fair with our Scholastic Dollars™ Profit & Rewards Program. Earning rewards is simple:

  1. Host a Scholastic Book Fair. 
  2. Choose to receive your Fair profit as Scholastic Dollars, a rewards currency with value beyond cash for making purchases from Scholastic Book Fairs. 
  3. Redeem your Scholastic Dollars and enjoy extra purchasing power—up to twice as much more than cash.

Profit Options

Your school's profit depends on your Fair’s sales. See the table below to determine your potential earnings.

You can also earn Scholastic Dollars as rewards. We offer opportunities throughout the school year so you can boost your school's balance.


Multiple-Fair Reward:

After your first Fair, sales at each additional Fair* will earn 10% extra Scholastic Dollars. Fairs must be held between August 1, 2022 and July 31, 2023.


Book Fair Chairperson Incentives:

We periodically offer Chairs a bonus for completing activities to promote their Fairs and discover new Fair features. Check your Chairperson’s Toolkit for the latest incentives.


Earned as rewards, Scholastic Dollars are applied to the same balance as your Fair profits, though they expire in six months (unless you hold another Fair within seven months, which extends your rewards until seven days after the second Fair). But don’t worry—when you redeem Scholastic Dollars, amounts with an expiration date are automatically redeemed first.

Check the balance page in your Chairperson’s Toolkit for specific expiration dates for each reward amount. Scholastic Dollars earned as Fair profit will appear in your balance after your Fair’s payment is finalized.



Redeem Your Scholastic Dollars


It’s easy to redeem the Scholastic Dollars that you earn as part of the Scholastic Dollars Profit & Rewards Program. 


The best way to use your Scholastic Dollars is to shop directly from your Book Fair. You'll get books into kid's hands immediately to help build school, classroom, and home libraries. You can also choose books and educational products by shopping online via the Scholastic Dollars Catalog, which features thousands of items, including:

Scholastic Dollars Catalog

  • Popular books and collections

  • Library-bound fiction and nonfiction, including exclusive editions

  • Furniture and carpets

  • Electronics and technology items

  • Items to foster clean and healthy classrooms and libraries

  • Gifts and incentives for volunteers and kids




*To qualify for the Multiple-Fair Reward, a Fair must meet a sales threshold of $2,500. Sales during your online Fair extension will be added to your Fair’s revenue and qualify towards the $2,500 threshold. Buy One, Get One Free (BOGO) Fairs qualify for the Multiple Fair Reward, though the additional 10% in Scholastic Dollars rewards applies only to online purchases, as in-person sales at BOGO Fairs are ineligible for the profit and rewards program.

All revenue levels referenced are pre-tax.
