Are you a Leaper? If you aren’t, you might want to go hang out with one today – as a number of companies are offering fun freebies for Leap Day, which is tomorrow.
Here’s a rundown:
Olive Garden is making up for lost Leap Day birthdays. On Saturday, the restaurant chain will give “Leaplings” four free desserts. One is to celebrate their birthday this year, the rest are for birthdays that never came over the last three years. Leap Day is that rare 29th day of February which only happens every four years. Other pasta fans also get a treat. Take-home meals will be marked down to two-dollars-and-29-cents.
Popeyes is offering you a free chicken sandwich tomorrow…if you do this today: order at least $15 worth of food from Popeyes via Postmates You’ll get the code for a free sandwich after making the purchase.
At 7-Eleven? You can grab a $2.29 pizza. And if you use 7-Eleven’s 7NOW app for the first time tomorrow, the promo code 29OFF50 will get you $29 off any delivery order over $50.
Twitter users were debating the type of people they want to stay away from on Thursday, using the viral hashtag “#StayAwayFromPeopleWho.” Here are 10 of the more amusing responses:
“think posting on Twitter equates to activism”
“don’t believe in democracy”
“Only ask for favors and only use you for favors”
“will lie to you just to get whatever they want.”
“have a k-pop profile pic”
“Who take the last slice of pizza”
“find enjoyment in trying to make someone’s life miserable.”
“act like everything is PERFECT in a crisis”
“anyone who has a pet spider or snake”
“never buy a round at the bar”
I can’t tell if the things on this list sound intriguing . . . or would make me throw up. Maybe it’s both?
