7-Eleven’s Letting You Fill Almost Anything You Want With Slurpee for $1.50

You’ll never guess who’s turning 50 this year.

He’s icy cold, but despite his age, he remains deliciously hard to resist. He does hang out at 7-Eleven more than you might like, however.

That’s right: It’s the 50th anniversary of the Slurpee.

And to celebrate, 7-Eleven is hosting a two-day-long Bring Your Own Cup Dayagain.

After a successful celebration in March, the company’s bringing back everyone’s favorite deal.

On Aug. 19 and 20 between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. local time, you can fill up your cup with delicious Slurpee goodness for just $1.50.

The best part of the deal? It doesn’t have to be a cup.

7-Eleven’s Bring Your Own Cup Day

7-Eleven will honor the #BYOCUPDAY deal for almost any vessel you can reasonably imagine filling with a Slurpee. According to the rules, it just has to be:

  • able to fit through a 10-inch hole
  • food safe
  • watertight (duh?)
  • the only one you buy — the deal is only good for one “cup” per person.

That leaves a lot of leeway. Fishbowl? Check. One of your lucky sneakers? Not so much… but that couldn’t fit a lot of Slurpee, anyway.

Toasters are prohibited, but pineapples are totally cool.

So grab your favorite flower vase — or secretly flush your child’s goldfish (don’t really) — and hit your local 7-Eleven this weekend for a sweet treat on the cheap.

You might want to check your blood sugar afterwards, though.

Your Turn: What vessel will you fill with a delicious Slurpee on Bring Your Own Cup day?
