NEW YORK (MainStreet) – Google Music is celebrating leap day by offering 29 albums for $2.99 each. We think it would have made more sense to have the albums cost $2.29 each, but we’re guessing the profit margins there would have been a little too tight. The albums offered here include Marvin Gaye’s Let’s Get It On and Lady Antebellum’s Own the Night, and the sale is, of course, for one day only.

As we previously reported, Subway will offer a free cookie today with any purchase at participating locations. Today is also the last day of Februany, in which all regular footlong subs are $5, so act fast.

For today only, Verizon Wireless is offering $100 off all 4G LTE smartphones and tablets, though a new two-year activation and broadband data pack are required to get the deal. That raises a question: If you sign a two-year agreement on leap day, does that mean it’s actually an eight-year agreement? (Answer: definitely not.)

Boston Market is offering a coupon for 10% off your entire purchase today, though we’re disappointed they couldn’t offer 29% off. It’s good at participating restaurants only, and kid’s meals, home delivery and catering are excluded.

Now this is more like it: The Body Shop is taking 29% off everything on its website today when you use the code LEAPYEAR at checkout. Prepackaged gifts, gift cards and Love Your Body memberships are excluded.

Zappos is extending its usual one-year return policy to four years in honor of the leap year. As always, return shipping is free, but note that the product must be in its original condition, so don’t think you can wear those boots for four years and then return them for a full refund in 2016.
