7-Eleven celebrates 90th birthday with free Slurpees

Posted July 11, 2017

Whenever July 11 rolls around, it means a sweltering heat wave, a long time until the next holiday off work, and free Slurpees.

The gas station/convenience store is offering free small Slurpees from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 11.

That's right, F-R-E-E.

The deal will be available from 11am-7pm and includes any flavor, including the brand new limited-edition cotton candy one. 7-Eleven estimates they will dole out some 9 million small Slurpees, a tradition the chain started with their 75th birthday. "7-Eleven Day is a celebration, not only of our birthday, but more importantly, of our customers".

"Ninety years is a big birthday, and our customers are the ones who got us here".

Participating stores will carry Slurpee Chrome Dome Lids and Cups, to get fans to snap selfies on 7/11.

Company officials estimate it has sold more than 7.4 billion Slurpee drinks in the treat's history.
