This Friday and Saturday are "Bring Your Own Cup" at 7-Eleven, which means you can basically bring any container of your choosing and fill it with as much Slurpee as possible.

From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 18, and Saturday, Aug. 19, you can fill up your custom cup for $1.50, no matter the size.

New flavors like cotton candy, lemonade, and watermelon-lime lite will also be available this weekend at certain locations.

While you can't fill up an entire cooler, you can still use pitchers, liter soda bottles, and small buckets and tubs. Here are some specifics when it comes to cups, according to the event webpage:
  • Cup must fit upright within 10-inch hole
  • Cup must be food-safe and clean
  • Cup must be watertight
  • One cup per person
Start finding that perfect container, and show off your creative cup with the hashtag #BYOCupDay. Follow 7-Eleven on Facebook and Twitter for updates.
