The Best Leap Year Deals and Freebies

Leap Year
By Q104

This February marks a leap year—an occasion so special it only happens every four years.

To celebrate, companies are offering unique sales of their own. Many of these deals are February 29–themed. Think lobster dinners for $29 and hotel stays for 29% off. And if you’re born on leap day, you’re really in luck.

Some of the best leap year deals and freebies are available exclusively to “leaplings.” Best birthday ever! Thanks to Shopping and Trends Expert Sara Skirboll from RetailMeNot for compiling the list.
