This Mother’s Day | Self Love (& a Babysitter Compliments of Kraft)

Did you see the news?! This Mother’s Day, Kraft is giving moms a day off. We looked for a catch… but there is no catch. They will pay for a babysitter — up to $100 worth — so you can enjoy some kid-free time doing whatever you want to do. Get brunch. Get your nails done. Take a nap. Go on a date with your significant other. Sit and eat in your car in complete silence. Anything you want!

So here’s how it works. You hire a babysitter on Mother’s Day, then head to Kraft’s dedicated website for the promotion, upload some kind of receipt that shows what you paid for childcare that day, and wait for Kraft to send you a check to reimburse the cost of the sitter. It may sound too good to be true – but so does macaroni and cheese after a long day. Am I right?! They do of course have a limit (as any business should) – but it is a generous limit; all the terms and conditions are shared below. 

We would love to hear from you – how to YOU plan to spend this Mother’s Day?
