AM Inbox: First reference to Leap Day

The Retail Email Blog monitors the email marketing campaigns of more than 100 top online retailers. Here are highlights from my inbox this morning:

Drs. Foster & Smith, 2/21 — Leap into Savings!
Drs. Foster & Smith gives us our first reference to Leap Day, which is Feb. 29. In 2008, nearly every Leap Day reference came on Leap Day itself, when one-third of retail emails mentioned it. For inspiration for your campaigns, check out the Leap Day tag.
