7-Eleven is hosting a two-day Bring Your Own Cup Dayagain.

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

On Aug. 18-19, 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.

The Rules for 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. 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.
