Free food and 40 cents off gas in Sacramento: Here are 7 Leap Day deals this week

Companies across Sacramento are set to offer a variety of deals — from free passport photos to discounted gas — to celebrate a day that doesn’t come around often.

A leap year takes place typically every four years when an extra day (Feb. 29) is added to the calendar, making the year a total of 366 days.

This year, Leap Day lands on Thursday and companies are offering freebies and discounts you probably won’t see again until the next leap year in 2028.
