Report cards will be coming out in a couple weeks for my kids, and I’ve spent some serious man-hours researching the subject of report card rewards for me and you both! I found some goodies, but was also disappointed that some of the restaurants around me no longer participated in these programs, due to economic strain. Here is a list of CURRENT Nationwide programs, and a list at bottom of the places you can call in your area to inquire!
Blockbuster Free Rental:
If you have a child in grades K-12, Blockbuster is offering a FREE movie rental when your child brings in his/her report card showing at least a B average. Click HERE for all the details. If you homeschool or have a weird grading system (Checks, Smiley Faces, Heiroglyphics, etc) I’m sure it won’t be a problem – I’ve done it in the past at Chuck-E-Cheese with a crazy report card. – Thanks, SavingYourCents!
Chuck E Cheese Tokens:
We always did this as kids, it’s the only way we ever got to go to Chuck E. Cheese! Take in your report card (any type of grading system) and receive 3 token for every “A” equivalent, 2 for every “B”, 1 for every “C”. There’s a 15 token limit per child, and you must make a food purchase. My mom always sat at the table with 1 coke (which we shared) to count as our food purchase. See? I come by my cheapness honestly!
Get 1 Donut per “A”, up to 6 Donuts per student!! Man, if you had 4 kids, you’d be bringing home 2 Dozen of these babies! *Krispy Kreme is my absolute FAVORITE donut….
Merita Bakery Outlet:
Print out THIS Certificate and have the teacher sign it. Bring it into any Bakery Outlet (see locations) and your child will receive a FREE Hostess or Dolly Madison snack cake while YOU will receive a FREE loaf of bread!
So Many More!
McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Chik-fil-a, Sbarros, Wendy’s, Cold Stone Creamery, Applebees, Sonic and many other fast food & casual dining restaurants also offer report card/school behavior incentives. However, they vary by location or franchise and are often only offered THROUGH the school. In addition, local eateries and attractions (i.e. Bowling Lanes, arcades, comic shops, ice cream parlours, etc..) usually have their own homegrown reward programs! Call around your area to see what kind of great freebies your kiddo can get for a job well done.
