Free Slurpee Day is This Week at 7-Eleven

To celebrate its unofficial birthday on Thursday, July 11, 7-Eleven stores across the country will be hosting Free Slurpee Day.

Each year, the franchise offers free, ice-cold Slurpees to customers. The beverage, which is essentially a sweet slushee, was invented by accident in the late 1950s.

The first free Slurpee Day was celebration in correlation with 7-Eleven’s 75th birthday.

Here’s more from the company’s website:

The Slurpee, an exceptionally sweet, slushee-type beverage sold and marketed by 7-Eleven, was invented on accident back in the late 1950’s and originally bore the name ICEE. It later became the well-known drink that we love and adore, and in 2002, the very first National Free Slurpee Day was celebrated in correlation with 7-Eleven’s 75th birthday. The long-standing tradition allows one to stop by a participating 7-Eleven on July 11, between the hours of 11am and 7pm, and receive a free, 12 oz Slurpee (while supplies last — so get there early). Join us while we ode to the greatest summer drink of all time!

The free offer is limited to one per person and only apply to small Slurpees.
