Leap Year rolls around just once every four years — so people just love to mark the date of Leap Day, February 29th, in some special way.
Retailers and restaurants often create amazing deals just for Leap Day Babies, also known as Leaplings — those special people who were born on February 29th (and can produce an ID to prove it). Since they only get a proper birthday once every four years, they deserve the special deals on their special day!
UPDATE: New deals added on 2/27/2020
Some of the deals below are just for Leaplings, but others are for everyone.
Unless otherwise specified, these deals are just for Saturday, February 29th, 2020. More deals are still being added as they’re announced.
At the end of the page are special Leap Day events, as well as other fun things that just happen to be happening on February 29th — like the Daffodil Day festival at Oakland Cemetery, and the last day of the PRISM Winter Lights exhibit at Woodruff Park.

Please check back! Many restaurants and retailers will announce their deals right before Leap Day, and we’ll add them here as soon as we can verify them.
In 2016 there were Leap Day deals from Sky High Sports, Krispy Kreme, Great American Cookie, Olive Garden, Pizza Hut, Hungry Howies, and more. We hope to be adding these retailers to our list before 2/29!
