I know sometimes I struggle to motivate my kids to do their best in school. I have never really been a personal fan of paying kids for good grades. I feel like the friendly competition was always a good motivator. Some places offer rewards for showing your report card with good grades, which also gives you a fun opportunity to make family memories. Here are a few of the freebies for good grades I found, but please call to verify with each location –
Applebees: Students, 12 & under who excel in academics (or other areas determined by their teachers) are eligible to receive an “A” is for Applebee’s award card, which can be redeemed for a FREE meal from the Applebee’s Kid’s Menu.
