For the second year in a row, 7-Eleven’s free Slurpee day will last the whole month of July.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, 7-Eleven would give away Slurpees on July 11, or “7-Eleven Day.” However, when the pandemic hit the U.S. last year, the convenience store chain decided to extend the giveaway for the entire month to avoid crowds and maintain social distancing.
The company has decided to repeat the month-long giveaway this year to celebrate its 94th anniversary, according to an announcement Thursday.
There’s a catch: Customers have to be 7Rewards loyalty members to get a free Slurpee, the chain said.
Starting July 1, 7-Eleven will give each loyalty member one coupon for a free, small Slurpee. The coupon will expire on July 31.
People who want a free Slurpee but aren’t members yet can download the 7-Eleven app or sign up on 7Rewards.com, the announcement said.
7-Eleven is also giving fans a chance to buy small Slurpees for just $1 for the whole month of July if they use the Slurpee stay-cold cup, the announcement said.
