Did you know kids can earn report card rewards for A’s, good grades, and other academic improvements?
From cookies, doughnuts, hockey games, and even discounted travel, your kids are rewarded BIG when they work hard in school.
While most report card rewards require A’s (or equivalent) for the discount or freebie, others recognize grade improvement as a cause to celebrate (and we agree!).
Read below for report card rewards, and let us know of any others!
As always, deals are subject to change at any time and may vary per location. Please contact location before you go to ensure the offer is still available. Call first! You don’t want to show up with your kid and their report card and be turned away.
Columbus Blue Jackets Student Achievers, powered by AEP
The Columbus Blue Jackets Student Achievers recognizes high performing and improved students for their academic accomplishments!
Students that receive straight A’s, or improve a full letter grade in one subject, over the course of a grading period are eligible to receive an exclusive ticket offer.
Parents can upload a copy of the student’s report card and if it qualifies, you’ll get an email with instructions on how to redeem the offer. Full details here.
I love this one because it only requires that a student improves a grade – not straight A’s or requirements that can be a struggle for some. Note: this can only be redeemed once per season, and is obviously limited to during the hockey season. Final spring report card is not eligible.
Jolly Pirate Donuts (Newark)
Kids can bring in their report cards and get a free regular donut for every A, or get a free regular dozen for straight A’s. Students must be present. They will accept whatever grading system used as an equivalent; paper copy or on your phone.
They even will honor the offer for college students! See Facebook page.

More discounts and freebies for good grades
Other places we have heard may offer report card rewards (but haven’t been verified lately).
Please check before you go to see whether individual locations are participating. Columbus on the Cheap is not responsible if a business does not honor a specific promotion, nor is any business required to honor a promotion.
These can change at any time, and it’s the consumers responsibility to verify in advance (but if you drop us a note, we’d love to update information!)
