Leap Day 2024 deals: Krispy Kreme, Wendy’s among discounts

Leap Day only comes once every four years, and to mark the special occasion, restaurants and fast-food outlets are offering specials and discounts. 

While anyone can snag many of these deals, people born on Leap Day, or "Leaplings" as they’re sometimes called, may reap additional perks.

Here is a look at some of the best deals available on Feb. 29, before they, too, disappear for another four years.

Any guest with a Feb. 29 birthday can also receive a free Original Glazed dozen, no purchase necessary on Leap Day. Proof of birthday is required.

"An extra day in the year is an irresistible opportunity for Krispy Kreme to be extra-sweet to our guests," said Krispy Kreme’s Global Chief Brand Officer Dave Skena. "So, we’re sweetening Leap Day by the dozens, including for fans whose true birthday comes around only every four years."


Wendy’s new Cinnabon Pull-Apart menu item is available now at Wendy’s nationwide.

To make the news even sweeter, Wendy’s said it will be offering a free Cinnabon Pull-Apart on Leap Day, followed by sweet breakfast offers for DashPass by DoorDash members from March 1 through March 10.

The Mexican fast-food chain is also celebrating Leap Day with a scavenger hunt on Chipotle's official Instagram account, which will reward up to 29 fans with free guac for a year. 

Noodles & Company 

Noodles & Company is giving extra perks to Noodles Rewards Members with special Leap Day deals. 

On Feb. 29th, Noodles Rewards Members will receive an extra  29% off on orders of $29 or more.

To take advantage of the reward member exclusive deals, guests can sign up by visiting noodles.com/rewards or downloading the Noodles Rewards app.


Shipt, the same-day delivery service, will offer 29% off select snacks, candy, ice cream and baked goods from a variety of grocers on Feb. 29.


On Feb. 29, and for one day only, those celebrating a Leap Day birthday will receive a birthday bear at Build-A-Bear for just $4 (a nod to the once-in-four-year cadence of Leap Day birthdays).

The limited-time promotion is an extension of the brand's well-known "Pay Your Age" offer, where children can take home a birthday bear during their birthday month for the cost of the age they are turning. 

"We understand the rarity of being born on Leap Day, and we wanted to extend a special gesture for those who celebrate on their special day once every four years," said Sharon Price John, the company’s president and chief executive officer.

The $4 promotion is available in-store only on Feb. 29 while supplies last.
