FABULESSLY FRUGAL FRIDAY: Report Card Freebies
Schoooool’s out for the summer (if I have that song stuck in my head, I feel someone else should too! Sorry).
For many area schools, today wrapped up the 2009-2010 school year. I’m sure report cards are the last things on your giddy little children’s minds. But if we mentioned all the freebies they could score with said report card, that just might get their attention!
Below are a few stores offering free items with proof of a good report card! Keep in mind these offers may vary by location and not all locations participate, so please call ahead.
1. Krispy Kreme Donuts-In case you are not stuffed full of Krispy Kremes from today’s National Doughnut Day celebration, head on over to Krispy Kreme and they will give your child a free donut for an “A”.
2. Limited Too– Limited Too wants to “congratulate girls on receiving outstanding grades.” Report cards with passing grades must be brought in within 30 days of receipt. Your child will receive $5.00 off her purchase that day.
3. Chuck E. Cheese- Chuck E. Cheese locations give away free tokens for good grades. They accept all types of grading systems, and will give away a maximum of 15 tokens. Currently, an “A” or equivalent is worth 3 tokens, a “B” is worth 2 tokens, and a “C” is worth 1 token.
