Free Slurpee Day: Beat the heat with free frozen Slurpees on 7-Eleven Day 2016

Have you heard the latest scoop? If you need a little refreshment to whet your whistle, you’re in luck. A very special day of the year is here and people are ready to celebrate. Once again, America's largest convenience retailer will be helping folks across the nation beat the heat during the dog days of summer.

July 11, 2016, is 7-Eleven Day, also referred to as Free Slurpee Day. 7-Eleven stores will be celebrating its 89th birthday by offering warm and weary customers a delicious frozen freebie in honor of the special occasion. After all, nothing quite hits the spot on a hot summer day than a delicious, ice-cold beverage, right?

For nearly 15 years, 7-Eleven has been giving away free Slurpee drinks in honor of its birthday and this year's event is expected to be bigger and better than ever! Just stop by a participating 7-Eleven location on July 11 between 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time, and pick up your small frozen Slurpee for free. But you better hurry - the offer is valid while supplies last.

What could be better during the sweltering summer heat than sippin’ on a delicious slushy drink? But fair warning - don’t slurp that Slurpee too fast or you’ll experience the brain chilling effects of brain freeze. Ouch! Happy birthday, 7-Eleven, and thanks for the cold one!
