Chime is Celebrating Moms with a Spa Giveaway and Free Babysitting!


Moms, our big day is coming up soon. And Chime, the awesome on-demand babysitting service from Sittercity, wants to celebrate it — and all of you — with a fabulous spa giveaway and free babysitting!

You might recall I first mentioned Chime back in the summer, just after it launched in the DC area. At that time, I hadn’t even used it yet myself. But I can tell you now from experience that it’s a fantastic, easy way to find a great sitter right in your neighborhood.

Their child care experts find popular sitters in every area they serve and pre-screen them, checking references with local parents and meeting with every sitter in person. Only the best of the best are invited to join. This makes finding a sitter very convenient, since all you have to do is access the free Chime app or website, submit a request, then choose from a selection of available sitters. Video profiles and parent reviews are provided and are very helpful in making a decision. Once you choose your favorite, your booking is confirmed instantly!


We’ve used the service several times and have had nothing but excellent experiences. Every sitter we’ve book through Chime has been very responsible, friendly, and adored by the kids. Friends I’ve recommended it to have said the same.

There are no membership fees — you simply book a sitter when you need one. And something I really appreciate is that payment is easy and cash-free. Your credit card is on file and charged at the end of the night. (No last minute, late night stops at the ATM on the way home!) And if your plans change, they never charge a cancellation fee.

Chime is currently available in DC and surrounding areas, including Alexandria, Arlington, Bethesda, Silver Spring, Takoma Park, Falls Church, and Springfield. They also serve Boston, Chicago, and NYC, something to keep in mind if you’re traveling there and are hoping for some KidFree time.

So, Chime wants to get your Mother’s Day celebration started a little early. Not only are they offering a chance to win a $200 gift card to Bliss Spa along with $100 in Chime babysitting credit, if you’re a new user and sign up for Chime here, they’ll gift you with a $50 credit to your account to use whenever you’re ready to book a sitting.

Now, go sign up and make plans for some “me” time!

Giveaway: For a chance to win the $200 gift card to Bliss Spa and $100 in babysitting credit, simply leave a comment below telling me your favorite way to enjoy some “me” time (i.e., sans kids). To be eligible to win, you must sign up for Chime here (remember, you’ll get a $50 credit when you do!) and subscribe to KidFriendly DC (see sign up to the left).

  10. Jess Belford

    my favorite ME time looks getting on my yoga mat as often as i can……..:)

  11. Mary Claire

    Mani/pedi, or dvr catch-up, it’s a hard call.

  12. Jen

    Me time involves getting recharged – remembering my blessings, practising thankfulness and reading something without interruption! Anywhere works, but a spa visit is the BEST ambiance!

  13. Tara

    “Me time” for me is date night with the hubby! We love to catch up over dinner and we love any and all forms of live entertainment. For my birthday we went to the ballet โ˜บ

  14. Mary

    Me time is extra sleep or catching up on some tv after everyone’s asleep ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. verniers Charlotte

    Hummm… (Hard question with a 3months old baby!!) My last ”me” time was shopping… For My children!!^^ and I loved it!!!

  16. Donna M.

    When my husband and I both get sans kid time we like to go out to dinner and enjoy some delicious food, wine, and adult conversation. When it’s just me, my ideal activity is getting a message or facial (or any spa pampering)!

  17. Bethany

    I love to get a manicure and pedicure, and read a good book while I’m at the nail spa.

  18. Bethany

    I love to go get a manicure and pedicure, and read a good book while I’m at the nail salon.

  19. fran

    Attending a Zumba class at the gym

  20. Spin and yoga with a soak in the hot tub as reward:)

  21. COnnie

    I love to get a slice of pizza and eat it while reading a good book.

  22. A perfect kid free date night for my husband and I is a walk around Cleveland Park, dinner at Medium Rare, followed by a movie at the Uptown.

  23. Wendy

    With 6 kids, me time is hard to come by! When I find it, it usually involves a good book and a quiet space.

  24. Melva Medina

    Recharging for Mother’s Day is wonderful. I love books and spas.

  25. Deni

    Dinner by the water and a movie. A massage would definitely be a bonus!

  26. Erika

    Happy hour drinks with good friends!

  27. D Morgan

    I haven’t brought myself to splurge on a spa (hubby has given as a gift) but I do like doing those inexpensive peal off masks that one can do at home..that’s one of my favorite me time activity.

  28. Shelly

    Reading! I never get to finish the newspaper anymore.

  29. Amy

    A glass of wine on the porch after the kids go to sleep ๐Ÿ˜‰

  30. Kristi Collins

    “Me” time is a great yoga class! But a spa trip…oolala!!

  31. Eleanor

    A long, long, long flight. With no internet. Just books, movies, a bunch of strangers (whom I don’t talk to) and me.

  32. Nelisq

    Me time usually happens in the middle of the day because I got out of work a little early, so I go shopping for some emotional recreation:)

  33. Christie

    My current allocation of me time is my Friday night trip to Trader Joe’s to do the weekly shop without the kids in tow! I would love to spend an hour with my feet up and a good book, in a cafe with a hot drink and some time to do some writing, or wandering in a museum without an infant strapped to my back. Bliss!

  35. Kathleen

    With a 2 year old and a 5 month old (who doesn’t take a bottle) I cherish a quiet car ride, to any quiet place where I can close my eyes for at least an hour before I have to take another car ride home to feed the baby. A spa definitely fits the bill!

  36. Amanda Perry

    My favorite kid-free “me time” activities are definitely a couples massage with my husband or dinner downtown and drinks afterward in an actual, no-kids-allowed bar.

  37. Beth

    Me time – a great workout followed by a massage and a glass of wine!

  38. Lindsay

    Getting a mani/pedi or hair cut and color!

  39. Amanda P

    My favorite way to enjoy kid-free time is strolling around downtown, popping into any shops that look interesting, meandering through a museum or two. Really taking my time and enjoying the freedom.

  40. Kieva Felts

    Spa time is the best kid-free time, period! End of story. Not just a 50 minute session, but a half day, if possible. Shower, whirlpool, massage, facial, hair, nails, YOU NAME IT!

  41. linda

    For me, it’s going on a run, listening to music, sitting back with a glass of wine and just take a moment to slow down time ๐Ÿ™‚

  42. Carrie H.

    As a SAHM of 4, the only time the kids aren’t with me is when I am doing laundry. I would adore a chance to alone and pampered for an hour or two.

  43. julie

    i love watching a movie with my husband

  44. Lucy Hynes

    I like to go to yoga or ride my bike. Or a massage!

  45. Gina Thorp

    “Me time” is best enjoyed with a good book or a great massage session. Or both. That sounds amazing.

  46. lori

    Catching up on my favorite magazines

  47. Sarah

    In my free time I love going for a run and going to a yoga class. My dream is to one day have the time to do both in one day!

  48. Jennifer

    Me time: a massage, probably. But I also miss playing tourist by myself in town! Hitting a museum (and actually looking at the exhibits!) doing some window shopping, stopping for lunch or latte…

  49. I can’t remember! Haha

  50. Esti

    Me time = Learning something new either reading, online class, etc. or working out.

  51. Stacey

    When I’m kid-free, I like to get a pedicure and sleep!
