Encouraging Your Kids + List of Report Card Freebies

When I was growing up, I so looked forward to family celebrations. My parents always went out of their way to make sure that my sister and I knew how proud they were of us. It spoke volumes to us when we were growing up, and even as adults, we still thrive on knowing that we have their constant love, support, and encouragement in all of our endeavors. 

My husband and I take the same approach with both of our kiddos, ages 9 & 3. Every night, as the kids lay down to sleep, I whisper 'I love you, and I'm proud of you every day.' While we don't necessarily go overboard on rewards for things like good behavior and good grades (which are expectations), we do like to 'treat' our kiddos for things like straight A's on report cards. While we don't hand over money for good grades, we do like to do things like treating our kids to a new book. They get so excited to visit a bookstore to pick out a new book on their own, and hubby and I are equally excited to see them wanting to read, which further encourages them to learn on their own.

There are lots of retailers that offer rewards for good grades on report cards, and I'm excited to share an updated list of these places with you for 2020.

Free Pizza at Marco's Pizza

Some McDonald's locations offer free kids meals or free value meals for students K-12.

Melting Pot
Participating locations may offer students in grades kindergarten-8th grade a free 3-course dinner including cheese, entree, and chocolate fondue. Students in grades 9th-12th can get a free four-course meal, including your choice of cheese fondue, salad course, entrée, and your choice of chocolate fondue. Contact your local store for more details and to make a reservation.

**Must be accompanied by 2 other fonduers ordering 2 four-course dinners. No sharing, please. One Straight A Dinner per every 2 four-course dinners ordered. No further discounts, promotions, or coupons apply. Their four-course dinners start at $36/person.

Pizza Hut
Good for each grading period- any student who has 3 As (or the equivalent thereof) may be eligible receive one free Personal Pan Pizza and a small soft drink or carton of milk for dine-in by presenting his or her report card to the manager. This offer is valid for elementary and middle school students only.

Participating Wendy's locations may offer kids a free treat for good report card grades.

*Be sure to check with your local restaurant locations before you mention these treats to your kiddos. There's nothing worse than making the kids a promise of a treat, and then finding out that the location won't honor the promotion once you're there, with kids in tow. Just call your nearest location and ask if they'll honor the promotion before you pack the kids in the car.
