What if your schools curriculum doesn’t offer a’s or b’s they do report cards on a different scale such as 1,2,3,4 scale based on learning achievements during that quarter
That is my question too. Most elementary schools dont use the A through F scale.
I know Family Video honors any equivalent to an A…
My school uses a number grading system and you can still tell what grade tou got A= 100-90 B= 89-80 C= 79-78 D= 70 F= 69 and below and with the number system if 1 is highest then they will give you credit for that. It’s kinda simple
Then your kids school is whack! My elementary school has always used A through F scale.
No, it only goes to letters after the 1st grade. Kindergarten and 1st grade doesnt have the letter scale. ALL schools are like this.
Then the highest possible would a 5 which would be an A.
Our Krispy Kreme was happy to honor 4s!
Please call your local restaurants to make sure they apart of this promotion. I am the marketing director for a Chick-fil-A in Ohio and we are not doing the promo that is listed.
Yes, the article specifically states this several different times, but always good to add it a 4th or 5th time 😉
And yet there will be people who won’t read that and get mad at the local restaurant for not honoring it
As the marketing director, perhaps you should consider doing this promotion. Grades are important and as a business that relies on community support, you should support your community by helping parents reward their kids.
i am the marketing director for chick-fil-a restaurants in missouri and we are not doing this promotion either. please check your resources before posting such offers. it unfair to our guests when we have tell them we are not participating in the promotion you posted!
we do honor teachers and honor roll students in other ways however, it does not seem to matter when they ask if we are participating in viral promotions. it looks as if we are the only chick-fil-a not participating and guests are disappointed. please consider the position you are putting businesses in and see from our point that we have to disappoint multiple guests every time these kind of unverified promotions are posted.
That’s exactly what the article stated they should do, on the top and on the bottom and after several of the posts too. If someone is too lazy to read it in the article several times, what makes you think they’ll read your comment???
That is very sad since each Chick-fil-a is individually owned. Way to positively support children in your community.
Anyone know the time frame for this? Month of May? June?
Any idea if any of these are likely to be home schooler friendly?
This isn’t fair for kids’ who’s schools don’t grade on the A’s and B’s scale. My son’s school give S+ or Satisfactory.
They can’t please everyone all the time. Not all locations (for any of these freebies) are offering it so it’s not fair to some who lives in that area either. No biggie.
Can’t make everyone happy all the time.
Everyone knows a S is an A/B. It’s the same scale, different letters.
Not fair omg entitlement much ,it’s free stuff. Want your kid to be rewarded buy them a reward but the reality is school in this country it not are and they should get good grades!
Wah wah cry cry. Get a better school system with real grades. For the 1-4 person, everybody knows 4=A.
How about just ask the business, if they are participating the manager will likely say yes to your request.
It say kindergarten threw college but kindergarten dont get A’s and B’s. Can they still gey anything?
by looking at your grammer, i’d suggest calling the locations like the article states, maybe you aren’t comprehending! it rewards students for good grades or good achievements. it does not offer free products solely based on the fact they’re in school.
makes me wonder if people are out seeking what they can get free from anywhere they can!
As a business owner, it’s really frustrating when social media outlets publish lists like these. There is no “choice in participation,” when an offer is fabricated. If each restaurant is individually operated, then let them do their own advertising of whatever offer they have decided on.
You create an environment of entitlement when you send social media messages like this.
so, because your business chooses to not have an offer, the other businesses that do shouldn’t receive kudos & get promoted for their efforts?? wow, that sounds like piss-poor management to me.
this isn’t an environment of entitlement, it’s an environment of, “xyz company cares about it’s community and has ____ great offer that you can take advantage of”. i’m sure if your company had a great offer it would be shared as well. you’re not being left behind, you’re opting not to run a promotion.
i think if i were a manager or marketing director, i might contact one of the businesses making the offer and ask them how they successfully run the promotion that is clearly working well for them, instead of whining on social media about it’s not fair that they’re attracting more business.
I’m totally with you on the Boycott Chick-Fil-A wagon! They’re a hate-based organization that hides behind the veil of caring about “Family”. They’ve gotten caught several times funding documented anti-gay HATE Groups.
You can read more about it here:
Truth, when you promote chick-fil-a you fund hate.
just because your location sucks and doesn’t make an offer doesn’t mean that other locations/business owners haven’t made one, that doesn’t make it a “fabrication”.
maybe as a business owner you should contact the participating locations for your business and ask them how that marketing is working for increasing their business instead of bitching about how someone else has a better marketing plan than you.
i brought my daughter into a pizza place over the weekend and she redeemed her report card freebie. my wife and i ordered a pizza, an italiano sub, chicken dippers and 5 drinks. My daughter was proud that she earned her own dinner, but I still had to feed her two brothers.
Who really won here?
Don’t be such an ass, if your marketing plan sucks, step up your game.
It would be great if the participating locations are listed.
I for one is wondering,what if your child gets an IEP and not a report card?
This reward isn’t fair for the students that are Autistic or mentally challenged that the schools just pass them with c’s because of the no kid left behind that they passed. So again thank you for leaving my two kids out.
life isn’t fair.
oh ffs, think of it this way, at least they still get their trophies for licking windows.
i’m so sick of people thinking everything should be given to them (& their spawn) whether they earn it or not. this isn’t a socialist country (yet) although a bunch of lib-tards are really heading it that way.
I’m sure most locations will honor what you have if you explain the situation to them. And either way, why direct your anger at the person who generously posted this blog to help parents out with this great list? Want to be upset at your local store if they don’t give your kids a treat, fine, but don’t shoot the messenger in this case.
Will a high school diploma work for seniors that graduated?
Can you use the report card more than once? Do they check it off?
Yes is m glad my teacher as send this link to me she just made my day this would be good during my whole summer
Major disappointment, this should not be published nationally. In indiana, here’s my rundown so far
Worked: Marcos, family video
Didn’t work: pizza hut, chick fil a, mcdonalds, Wendy’s
Baskin Robbins had no idea what program I was referring to but they gave me a scoop of ice cream to be nice lol
I like the resources on this site. Thanks for compiling a list of companies who offer perks. If I can make a suggestion, I wonder if you should remove your comment about Chick-fil-A in bold red text?
While it is unfortunate that you feel you were “harassed”, if you posted something applying to all restaurants in the chain based only on something that 3 locations had offered, I think I can understand a certain amount of backlash as a result. It is certainly understandable how a company in that position would feel caught in a position where they look bad to their customers.
From my objective opinion, if you made the decision to post this without clarifying the terms appropriately, blaming them for their reaction feels a little tacky. Just a thought. Apart from this, I appreciate the resources on your site.
Remember that if it sounds like a scam or feels sketchy at all, do not enter any of your personal information online (or over the phone).
