Monday is 7/11 and That Means Free Slurpees for Everyone!

Monday is 7/11 and That Means Free Slurpees for Everyone!

It’s that time of year when an ice-cold beverage really hits the spot.

And when that ice-cold beverage is free -- well, then it hits your wallet quite nicely, too.

This Monday, July 11, 2016, is 7-Eleven Day, also known as “Free Slurpee Day.” That’s because simply entering any participating 7-Eleven convenience store between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on 7/11 (get it yet?) gets you a free small Slurpee.

But wait, there’s more...

Want 11 Free Slurpees This Summer?

That's right -- Free Slurpee Day is only the kickoff of Slurpee Weekwhen you have the chance to earn free Slurpees for the rest of the summer.

Here’s how the promotion works:

Download the 7-Eleven app for your smartphone, then scan your app when you buy seven Slurpees between July 12 and July 18. Once you've purchased the seventh drink, you'll see codes for 11 free Slurpees in your app's "Scan & Save" section.

You can only use one free Slurpee code per day, and you have to redeem them all before August 31.

Your Turn: Are you going to get your free Slurpee on 7/11? Will you celebrate Slurpee Week, too?
