It’s that time of year again. July 11 marks Free Slurpee Day at all participating 7-Elevens. Tomorrow you’ll be able to get a free small Slurpee of the flavor of your choosing (including the new Sour Patch Watermelon Slurpee) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. while supplies last.
This year 7-Eleven is marking its 88th birthday and the 49th year of the iconic Slurpee. If you’re surprised that the world’s most famous mini mart has been around for that long, it was actually called Southland Corporation until 1946. The rest of the week, from July 12 to 18, will be known as 7Rewards week, with free or reduced price food and drinks for 7-Eleven rewards members all week long. Yes, that does mean free Big Gulps.
"7-Eleven Day is a celebration, not only of our birthday, but more importantly, of our customers," said Laura Gordon, 7-Eleven vice president of marketing and brand innovation. "By adding 7Rewards Week, we have a whole week to say thank-you for their business throughout the year."
