Today, July 11, 7-Eleven celebrates their unofficial 87th birthday, and their gift to you is a free small Slurpee. From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., you can hit up your local Sev and walk out with a Slurpee of whatever flavor you choose. (Word to the not-yet-wise, there's a new lemonade flavor that would taste damn fine with a floater of vodka or gin – not that we're recommending you get free-Slurpee-drunk.)
The convenience store is expanding their birthday celebration this year by also offering free food deals from July 12 to July 19. Just download the 7-Eleven app and you'll get a free treat offer each day, including a free Snickers or Twix ice cream bar, a bag of M&M's birthday cake-flavored candies, ANOTHER free Slurpee next Saturday and other highly processed, chemical-laden deliciousness.
Go forth and celebrate the birth of a convenience store by drinking frozen stuff!
This very important update just in: Stardust Video and Coffee says that if you bring your free Slurpee to them today, for $4 they'll add a two-ounce pour of premium vodka to your drink. And since there's a 7/11 right next door, your Slurpee won't even melt before you get there. Stardust says, "Don't thank us, thank heaven."
$4 for a 2-ounce pour of premium vodka in yr free 7/11 slurpee. They say, "Don't thank us, thank heaven."
