7-Eleven’s Letting You Fill Almost Anything You Want With Slurpee for $1.50
It’s the most wonderful time of the year: School’s out, the sun is hot, and the tans are fresh.
And you know what that means: It’s Slurpee season.
To celebrate, 7-Eleven is hosting a two-day Bring Your Own Cup Day -- again.
After a successful celebration in the past, the company’s bringing back everyone’s favorite deal.
On May 19-20 between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. local time, you can fill 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:
- 10 inches in diameter or smaller
- 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 Friday and Saturday for a sweet treat on the cheap.
You might want to check your blood sugar afterward, though.
