I would think the pack/troop ought to be paying for the awards. In fact, the pack and troop I serve don't even pay for badges of rank. The council has what is called a gold unit program, wherein units that meet their Friends of Scouting $ goal (and the goal is based on number of scouts in a unit) get the rank badges "free". Arrow points, activity pins, merit badges, etc, are paid out of unit funds, as are belt loops the first time a boy earns them. Replacements or duplicates are at cost to the parents. Full disclosure, popcorn sales are always robust; neither unit is on a shoestring budget.

Another reason to contact your Cubmaster.

 

You should also have a Cub Scout Instant Recognition Kit which includes a pocket totem, thongs, and instant recognition beads. One of these beads should be given to your Bears each time they have completed 3 rank achievements.
