Where To Get Free Food On Leap Day, February 29

These deals won’t come back around for another four years.

When you think of national food holidays, you probably don't think of Leap Day—but maybe that's because it only comes around every four years. The year 2024 will have 366 days, and the month of February gets one extra day tacked onto its 28-day stretch. To celebrate the extra 24 hours of 2024, these restaurants are rolling out extra deals on free and cheap food. Here's where to go for a small reward.

BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse

BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse would like its customers to treat themselves on February 29 this year. On Leap Day, the restaurant is offering Pizookies for $2.29 (typically $5) with a $10 minimum purchase for dine-in customers. The dessert comes in a number of flavors, including a classic Chocolate Chunk, Hot Fudge Brownie, Strawberry Shortcake, and more.

Chipotle is also running an "Extra Day, Extra Codes" promotion in which customers have the chance to win free guacamole for a year. To participate, you must find hidden keywords in the brand's Instagram posts; there will be 10 hidden keywords on February 27 and nine on February 28. For each keyword, the 366th person to text the keyword to 888222 will win free guac for a year from Chipotle. (Because there are 366 days in a leap year, get it?)

Dunkin’

Leap Day celebrants can get an extra jolt of caffeine at Dunkin' with this February 29 deal. Members of the Dunkin' Rewards program can get a $2 medium Cinnamon Vanilla Coffee through the Dunkin' app and earn four times the points on all their app orders for the day.
