7-Eleven is doing its insane free Slurpee day again. The convenience store chain known for 24 hour stores and it’s frozen sugary drinks, is once again giving away free Slurpees in honor of “7/11 Day,” July 11.
Participating stores will be giving away free small Slurpee drinks from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., while supplies last. But do expect long lines because 7-Eleven will be doling out about 9 million Slurpees by the end of the day.
On top of the classic Slurpee flavors, Coke, wild cherry and blue raspberry, this year’s featured frozen drink is the Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries.
“Free Slurpee day may be the most anticipated day of the year for millions of 7-Eleven customers and new customers alike,” said Raj Kapoor, 7-Eleven senior vice president for fresh food and proprietary beverages.
7-Eleven was renamed such for its original operating hours in 1946 when it had its name changed from Tote’m Stores. These days, most of the stores are open 24 hours, but the company instead uses the date July 11 as a birthday celebration of sorts.
Following the birthday bash there will be “seven days of deals” according to their website.
