It’s 7/11/2018, which means that 7-Eleven is celebrating with free slurpees. So, it’s no wonder that the day is also referred to as Free Slurpee Day. For the last 15 years, the chain has used the day to host a giveaway of free slushies in order to honor the birthday of 7-Eleven stores.
So, how do you get your free slurpees today? From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 11, 2018, you can get a free small-sized Slurpee at 7-Eleven stores while supplies last, as reported by People. The chain is estimated to give out approximately 9 million free slurpees today.
Once the day is over, it doesn’t mean that the free slurpees are gone. This year, 7-Eleven is hosting Slurpee Week again for its birthday week, which means there are tons of freebies and discounts going on. Customers just have to log their progress in the 7-Eleven app to receive the deals. People has reported that these deals include:

Last year actually marked the 90th birthday of the chain and this year, the Slurpee turns 52 years old, as it made its debut in 1966, according to NJ.com.
One of the new flavors and promotions that 7-Eleven also has going on right now is the limited edition Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries flavored-slurpee. Other slurpee flavors at participating stores include Wild Cherry, Coca-Cola, Pina Colada and Blue Raspberry. Another promotion going on is the Slurpee Tongue Straws.
Mental Floss has reported that, on average, 13 million cups of slurpees are consumed every month. We’re guessing that this month will greatly increase due to the promotional event.
