Freebies for Good Grades on Report Cards!

School's almost out and after all the hard work your kids put in this year they can kick off the summer with some great rewards. Following is a list of some freebies that I've heard may offer your kids a "reward" for their good grades! Make sure you phone ahead to see if your particular store is offering these freebies though.

*Baskin-Robbins -- Get a free scoop of ice cream for good grades on your report card!

*Blockbuster -- Get a free family friendly movie rental for A's on your report card for grades K-12!

*Cheryl & Co -- Get a free cookie for every A on your report card!

*Chick-fil-A -- Bring in your report card showing all A's and B's and receive a FREE 8-pack of nuggets!

*Chuck E. Cheese -- Bring in your most recent report card and your child will receive FREE tokens for good grades (up to 15 tokens per child)!

*Family Video -- Get a free rental when you show your good report card!

*Krispy Kreme -- Get a free donut for each A (up to 6 A's)!

*McDonalds -- Students with straight A's can get a FREE Happy Meal!

*Pizza Hut -- Each marking period, any child who has 3 A's or the equivalent thereof, will receive one Personal Pan Pizza and a small soft drink or carton of milk by presenting their report card to the manager (dine-in only and for Elementary and Middle School children)!

*Sbarro Pizza -- Any student with A's and B's on their report card automatically becomes one of our PizzAchievers. Sbarro will provide every PizzAchiever and an accompanying adult with a FREE slice of cheese or pepperoni pizza and a small soda!

*Topps -- The Topps of the Class program has been created to give you a great trading card gift when you put your mind to work. Every time you bring in a report card to this store, the manager awards you with a gift!

*Limited Too -- Get $5 off any Limited Too purchase when you take your report card to the retail store within 30 days! I wonder if Justice will honor this now...may need to make a call on this one!

*Credit Unions -- I've heard that some credit unions will deposit $5 in your child's account for a good report card. Anyone been able to take advantage of this and what Credit Union??

*IBC Bakery Outlet Store -- Students with A's and/or B's will receive a FREE Hostess or Dolly Madison snack cake and parents will receive one FREE loaf of bread at participating bakery outlets; click here for more information.

I have not personally taken advantage of these but read about them on the internet through various couponing websites. As soon as we get those report cards though, we will be making some calls to see who in our area is participating! Do any of you have any other "grade deals" that you can let us know about in the comment section or have you tried any of the above offers??
