Good Student Report Card Freebies

by Tara Kuczykowski on June 1, 2010 · 25 comments


School's almost out for the summer. If you've got a kiddo that's tried extra hard at his or her studies, here are some companies that reward students for getting good grades on their report cards:

  • 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!
  • 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 -- Chuck E. Cheese believes in the value of a good education. Have your child bring in their most recent report card and they will receive FREE tokens for good grades.
  • 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 his or her report card to the manager.
  • Sbarro Pizza -- Any student with A’s and B’s on his or her report card automatically becomes one of our PizzAchievers. Sbarro will then provide every PizzAchiever and an accompanying adult with a free slice of cheese or peperoni 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 will award you with a gift!
  • Limited Too – Get $5 off any Limited Too purchase when you take your report card into any retail store within 30 days of issuance!

As some of these may be at participating locations only, I highly recommend that you call ahead to ensure that your particular store is offering these freebies.

Do you know of any other good student/good report card freebies?

Thanks to Saving Dollars and Sense for many of these offers!

I remember when I was a kid I was lucky to get a personal pizza for reading books (through Pizza Hut). Looks like good grades can really pay off for kids these days!

We homeschool, thus we don't have official Report Cards. Any suggestions?

we made our own report card and the stores we take it to have no problem. we also do a 1-4 scale instead of A,B,C,D,&F and they have no problem with that either.

Limited Too is out of business - all stores should now be Justice brand. I was told last year by the manager of the Justice store that they no longer offered the $5 off/report card incentive.

Also, it would be helpful if the links went to a description of the program, or somehow verified the incentive, instead of just linking to the companies' general websites. I have a feeling a lot of these are regional and/or only offered by specific franchisees (McDonald's, Chick-Fil-A), or outdated altogether (Limited Too).

I did link to the promotions when available. Unfortunately, many of them don't have information available online. It's true that some may be regional/franchise specific offers, which is why I recommend calling ahead to verify.

Our credit union will deposit $5 in our child's account for a good report card.

Thank you for finding these! Even when I go to most of these web sites, I still don't find these deals. How do you know about them?
I passed them on to my friends along with the source link.
THANKS

If you choose to do the Baskin Robbins one, call your local store ahead of time. Ours does not participate. I read that Cold Stone creamery has some incentive, but again call before going.

On the summer reading incentives that someone mentioned, Half Price books usually does a summer reading incentive. If you have Rave movie theaters, check there as well. The past 2 summers, they gave a free movie ticket for each 3 to 5 books read (I don't remember the exact number).

Although some may not agree, I honestly believe that if one site or franchise offer an incentive such as this it should be manditory that they all do. It clearly means more business for them all.

Today when we passed our publix, they had a sign saying free ice cream/frozen yogurt to kids with good grades. It might just be our publix, but i doubt it.

OK not quite along the same line of good grades but I love that Kroger and Meijer has the free cookie club for little shoppers. It is simply good business. Happy kids = moms who shop longer = more $$ spent at the store.

hello there and thank you for your info – I've definitely picked up anything new from right here. I did however expertise some technical points using this web site, as I experienced to reload the site a lot of times previous to I could get it to load correctly. I had been wondering if your web host is OK? Not that I am complaining, but sluggish loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and could damage your high-quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I'm adding this RSS to my e-mail and
can look out for much more of your respective interesting content.
Ensure that you update this again very soon.

While I understand the incentive behind this I wish there were more healthier choices! Or other options. My son who so far has got all a's & b's this school year & last year got all a's & b's (with the exception of 1 high c) loves places like Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Half Price Books, Barnes & Noble & The Crepevine. I wish places like this offered incentives for good grades too. Not to mention Pizza Hut & Blockbuster have gone bankrupt & are almost non existant nowadays.

If you would like for your favorite store to offer good grade incentives, please contact them. They may offer something and it's just not on their web site. If they don't already offer something, they may consider beginning a program since you asked about it! :) Good luck!

Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?
I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good gains.
If you know of any please share. Thanks!

Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was
wanting to know your situation; many of us have created some nice practices and we are
looking to exchange solutions with other folks, why not shoot
me an email if interested.
