Tomorrow is Free Slurpee Day!


Oh thank heaven for July 11th. That means it’s Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven.

So, how can you enjoy your freebie? All you have to do is walk into any 7-Eleven in the country and ask for your small Slurpee cup between 11am and 7pm ET. There’s no purchase or coupon necessary. It’s also while supplies last.

On top of that, 7-Eleven is celebrating Slurpee week from 7/12 – 7/18 by offering customers 11 free Slurpees if they purchase seven. All you have to do is download the free 7-Eleven mobile app, buy seven Slurpees during that time period, have the clerk scan the bar code on the app and you’ll be awarded 11 Slurpees.

This is also the 90th year of 7-Eleven, founded in 1927. 

Cheers!
