The next Leap Year is 2028. This means Leap Day discounts and freebies are four years away. While some of these discounts will only be available to Leap Day babies, many offers will apply to all shoppers, regardless of their birthday.

Although we don't know what deals we'll find on Feb. 29, 2028, we've put together our favorite Leap Day discounts and freebies from 2024, we hope to see again in four years.

One thing we do know is, if you’re a “Leapling” or “Leaper” (your birthday falls on Feb. 29), be prepared to show your ID for any Leapling birthday exclusive offers.

Make sure to also read on what you should stock up on in February, plus our favorite ways to get free beauty samples year round. And don’t forget to download The Krazy Coupon Lady app for more money-savings tips, deals, and coupons.

Offers and local participation may vary.

Leap Day is an extra day added to February once every four years.

Because Earth actually takes 365 ¼ days to circle around the sun, every four years, we have to add an extra day to the year to keep the calendar in sync. So it’s pretty special when there’s a Feb. 29 — which is why we see specials and deals rolled out in restaurants, hotels, and stores. 

The next Leap Day will be Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2028.


Since Leap Years happen every four years, the next Leap Day will predictably take place on Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2028. In case it’s easy to forget, just always remember that Leap Years take place the same years as U.S. presidential elections and the Olympic Summer Games. Don’t worry — we’ll remind you before then.

Leap Day occurs every four years

Leap Day occurs every four years, minus century years that aren’t exactly divisible by 400. Next Leap Day will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 29 in 2028. The purpose of Leap Day is to keep the calendar synchronized with the astronomical year, which is approximately 365.25 days, while our calendar year is 365 days. Adding this extra day helps account for the extra 0.2422 days in the astronomical year, so seasons don’t shift. Skipping the century years not perfectly divisible by 400 prevents a huge discrepancy from building up over centuries. This means the years 2100, 2200, and 2300 won’t have leap days.
