In honor of 7-Eleven Day, the global convenience chain will be giving away free icy Slurpees. While the first Slurpee came about as the result of a freak freezer accident, the icy treat has been a hit among consumers for many decades. Now the chain is celebrating its 89th birthday and the iconic drink's 50th birthday by giving away free Slurpees.
7-Eleven Day takes place on July 11th at all participating 7-Eleven stores across the US and Canada. Between the hours of 7AM and 11PM, customers can come in to pick up a free 12 ounce Slurpee in the flavor of their choice. There is even a new birthday cake flavor available for those who are feeling extra festive.
With summer temperatures rising, the free-Slurpee promotion is a great way for consumers to beat the heat.
