To help families honor mom Sunday, several restaurants are offering free Mother’s Day treats, meals and discounts.

And one of the best deals is available everywhere mimosas are served.

Mobile shopping app Ibotta is offering moms across the country a free mimosa Sunday at all bars and restaurants through a special cashback rebate.

“We’re excited to raise a glass for the third year in a row to all moms, and we hope they will enjoy a mimosa on us,” said Bryan Leach, Ibotta founder and CEO, in a statement.

The “Mimosas for Moms” rebate will be available all-day Sunday for new and existing users under the “Restaurants and Bars” category. After buying the cocktail at any bar or restaurant, upload an itemized receipt to get $5 cash back added to your account.

Once you earn $20 through the app, which also offers rebates on groceries, online shopping and more, you can transfer money to a PayPal or Venmo account or choose a select gift card.

But be prepared for restaurants to be busy and long waits.

The Saturday and Sunday of Mother’s Day weekend are the top two sales days of the years for restaurants, according to Brad Plothow, vice president of brand and communications for Womply, a small business software provider.

“Mother’s Day weekend is the busiest of the entire year for local restaurants nationwide, according to our analysis, so finding an open table could be difficult,” Plothow said. “If you’re planning to take mom out for brunch or dinner this Saturday or Sunday, be sure to call ahead and get a reservation.”
