Since 2002, the 75th anniversary or the popular chain, 7-Eleven has celebrated July 11 (7/11) as Free Slurpee Day. Over 13 million cups of the 7-Eleven exclusive beverage are purchased each month, and the retailer decided that everyone should be able to get a taste of the chilly drink for free one day a year. In 2019, 7-11 Free Slurpee Day falls on a Thursday. If you want to get your hands on the no-cost slushee-style beverage this year, here’s what you need to know.
Where to Get Your Free Slurpee
If you want to enjoy a free Slurpee during the event, all you need to do is head to a participating 7-Eleven. Slurpees are exclusive to the chain so that you won’t find them anywhere else.
When You Can Get Your Free Slurpee
In another nod to the retailer’s name, Free Slurpee Day runs from 7:00 am to 11:00 pm each July 11. You have to arrive during those hours to get your drink discount. Otherwise, you will have to pay full price.
The Size Included in the 7-11 Free Slurpee Day Deal
You can’t get just any size Slurpee on Free Slurpee Day. The deal is limited to the 12-ounce (small) size only. You are not allowed to bring your own cup, even if it is 12 ounces. You can only use official 7-Eleven cups for the deal.
How Many Free Slurpees You Can Have
You are limited to one free Slurpee from a participating location. If you try to get more than one, you will have to pay for the others.
However, every member of a family can get a free Slurpee. The one drink limit applies to each person, not each party. Just be aware that everyone might have to go through a separate transaction at the register, as locations typically run the deal through the registers to track how many are given away.
The Slurpee Flavors You Can Have
On Free Slurpee Day, you can choose any available Slurpee flavor for the deal. Often, the chain debuts a special flavor every year, so you can select from traditional options like wild cherry and coca-cola or try something new.
Additionally, you can also mix the flavors if you like. There is nothing to stop you from layering some pina colada and blue raspberry (or any other combinations) during the deal period.
Can You Get Another Drink for Free Instead?
No. The deal only applies to Slurpees. If you want another beverage, including fountain sodas or bottled drinks, you have to purchase those at the regular price.
Are You Guaranteed to Get a Free Slurpee?
No. 7-Eleven does not promise that you will get a free Slurpee, even if you arrive at a location between 7:00 am and 11:00 pm on July 11. The deal is only available while supplies last.
If you want to increase your chances of getting the drink at no-cost, then it is wise to head to a location as soon as Free Slurpee Day starts. Otherwise, you might miss out.
