Did someone say free cupcakes? One grocery chain is handing them out for Leap Year. But, there's a catch.

February 2024 is a Leap Year, with one extra day in the month. It's something that happens only once every four years. So everyone who was born on February 29 misses out on a lot of birthdays over the years.

Free Leap Year Cupcakes

Tops Friendly Markets is celebrating all those missed years. Anyone born on February 29 will get free cupcakes. And not just one. A four-pack of gourmet cupcakes will be handed out from February 29 to March 2, 2024. You'll need your ID or birth certificate to prove it's actually your birthday.

“We’re excited to celebrate all the Leapling birthday’s,” said VP, Marketing & Promotional Strategy, for Tops, Aaron Payne. “Every year there is always a lot of attention paid to the first baby of the new year, why not shine the spotlight on our Leapling friends.”
