How To Get A Free Slurpee At 7-Eleven Today

Did you forget? It’s July 11, or 7/11, which means today is the day you can get a free Slurpee at 7-Eleven.

7-Eleven stores around the country are offering up complimentary Slurpees from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. (local time) today only. All you have to do is walk in and ask, nicely, “Hey, may I please have a Slurpee, kind 7-Eleven employee?”

It’s all part of a celebration in honor of 7-Eleven’s 90th birthday: This is the 16th straight year the chain has marked its birthday by handing out free frozen treats. There will be plenty of brain freeze to go around, as 7-Eleven says it expects to hand out nine million Slurpees.

The Slurpee itself celebrated its 50th birthday last October. It had its start as a semi-estranged child of the ICEE, which was invented in the late ’50s. 7-Eleven licensed the beverage-freezing technology behind the machine in 1965.

Friendly Reminder… It’s Free Slurpee Day At 7-Eleven Today

Look at the date. If it says it’s July 11, 2016, you can get a free Slurpee at 7-Eleven today.

Between the hours of 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., 7-Eleven is offering free small Slurpees to celebrate 7/11. Because that’s just like 7-Eleven, you see.

The company is extending the Slurpee deals through the week with a “Buy 7, Get 11 Free” deal. Is that a… BOGE?

In any case, if you purchase seven Slurpees between July 12 and July 18, you’ll then get 11 free — but you have to use the 7-Eleven app and be a member of the 7Rewards program. The free beverages will be in the form of coupons that are added the rewards account when the app is scanned at purchase, and they’ll work through Aug. 31, 2016.
