Today is the most important day of the year for 7-Eleven enthusiasts. It’s July 11th, also known as 7-11, also known as Free Slurpee Day, and the chain is going all out to commemorate that trick of the calendar once again this year. Here’s Raj Kapoor, 7-Eleven’s senior vice president for fresh food and proprietary beverages, in a press statement on the reason for the season:
“Free Slurpee Day may be the most anticipated day of the year for millions of 7‑Eleven customers and new customers alike … 7‑Eleven Day is a celebration, not only of our birthday, but more importantly, of our customers. I encourage everyone to look around the store, grab an old favorite like a Big Bite hot dog to enjoy with their free Slurpee drink or maybe try something they haven’t. We have lots of delicious new choices in stores.”
If you can’t make it to your local 7 today, it’s also doing different promotions for the rest of the week, albeit not any involving free Slurpees:
July 12: Free 7-Select Pure Water with the purchase of any Bodyarmor sports drink.
July 13: Free Big Gulp with the purchase of a share-size Snickers.
July 14: Free popcorn with the purchase of a 20-ounce Smartwater.
July 15: Free Reese’s with the purchase of a share-size bag of 7-Select gummies.
July 16: Free 20-ounce Coke with the purchase of any package of Cheez-Its.
Stay safe out there, kids.
