It’s 7-Eleven Day! Get a FREE Slurpee & More!

Slurpee3Free Slurpee® Day is only the beginning. As it has for the past 13 years, 7‑Eleven® will celebrate its birthday by giving away millions of FREE small Slurpee drinks on 7‑Eleven Day, or July 11. To celebrate 7‑Eleven’s 88th birthday, participating stores will serve the free frozen drinks from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. local standard time, Saturday, July 11 (7/11), while supplies last.

But the party doesn’t stop there. The world’s largest convenience retailer is extending the celebration, from July 12 to 18, with 7Rewards® Week. During 7Rewards week, 7Rewards members will receive a free 7-Select® food or drink valued under $2 with any 7‑Eleven cup purchase (Slurpee, Big Gulp®, Coffee and Iced Coffee Chillers). To receive the free 7Rewards Week offers, customers must have 7‑Eleven’s free mobile app (available via the App Store or Google Play).

The FREE 7-Select offers will automatically appear as a coupon in the “Scan and Save” section of the app. The free 7-Select products are available at participating stores, while supplies last and must be under $2.

7-Select is 7‑Eleven’s line of private brand products that include snacks, bottled water, desserts and more. 7‑Eleven has embarked on a store-wide effort to ensure the best quality and taste for its 7-Select line of products.  7‑Eleven is carefully selecting premium ingredients for its 7-Select line, and the more decadent or exotic, the better. Consumers are looking for, and expecting, better quality food and new taste experiences. With 7-Select products, 7‑Eleven aims to give them what they want.

During the 7Rewards promotion, customers can select their choice of free 7-Select products under $2, such as 7-Select-branded gummi candies, salty snacks, bakery items, cookies, ice cream and cold beverages.

“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.”

BTW, here are some facts about 7-Eleven that I personally didn’t know:

  • July 11 (7/11) is the official birthday of the 7-Eleven® convenience store chain.
  • Of all U.S. retailers, 7-Eleven sells the most … USA Today newspapers, cold beer, cold single-serve bottled water, cold Gatorade, fresh-grilled hot dogs and money orders.
  • 7-Eleven was the first retailer to offer fresh-brewed coffee in to-go cups, introducing it in their Northeast stores in 1964.  And now is the first retailer to add functional, herbal enhancements to its coffee to go.
  • 7-Eleven stores sell almost 26 million gallons of fountain drinks a year – enough to fill 65 Olympic-size swimming pools.
  • 7-Eleven sells 41 million gallons of milk each year – enough for lots of milk mustaches!  And enough to pour more than two glasses of milk for every man, woman and child in the United States.
  • Ho Ho Ho!  The day most retailers are closed, 7-Eleven is hopping.  Christmas is one of the biggest sales days of the year for the convenience chain.
