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.

Tuesday, July 11, 2017, 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.

If you’re a member of the 7Rewards program (buy six 7-Eleven drinks and get the seventh one free), you’ll get twice the perks because your free Slurpee counts as a “punch” on your loyalty card app, taking you one step closer to scoring yet another freebie.

But wait, there’s more!

Turn Every 7th Slurpee Into a Freebie

Free Slurpees are cool enough, but the 7Rewards app is pretty cool, too.

Just download the app on your iOS or Android device, and you’re on your way to any free self-serve drink, including Slurpees. Scan your app with every self-serve drink purchase (coffee, Slurpee, Big Gulp, Chiller Iced Coffee, etc.), and when you reach six purchases, you get the seventh for free!

Any size cup counts toward your free seventh drink. What’s more, you can choose any size you like as your freebie. So, you could buy six small Slurpees and still get the largest available size as your freebie.

If you want to maximize your free Slurpee savings on July 11, you could hit six 7-Elevens for freebies and scan your rewards app at each one, then score the free seventh Slurpee, giving you a Slurpee buzz that would make Bart Simpson jealous.

We’re not saying this is recommended on either a health or an ethical level, but, you know… you could.
