Free slurpees all month long? (Brain) freeze and read that one again.
7-Eleven is celebrating its 94th birthday this year, and it isn’t afraid to shake things up a bit.
The convenience store classic has announced that its free slurpees, normally available only on July 11 (7/11), are redeemable for the entire month, according to a press release from 7-Eleven. By now, all 7-Eleven loyalty app members have received a coupon for a free small Slurpee drink, valid for the entire month of July.
This longer-running deal follows what the brand planned last year due to COVID-19 concerns in order “to avoid having millions of Americans crowded around Slurpee machines on a single day” says the release.
But wait, there’s more than just slurpees! According to that same release, all roller grill items like taquitos, hot dogs and egg rolls are $1 for the entire month. And on July 11, birthday cake donuts will be on sale for 50 cents each.
7-Eleven also has promised delivery deals like free delivery on July 10-11 and other month-long offers like $5 whole pizzas. Just remember, you need to download the brand’s app in order to take advantage of these deals.
7-Eleven isn’t alone in switching up its annual giveaway. Dairy Queen canceled its much-anticipated Free Cone Day earlier this year due to COVID-19 concerns, while IHOP moved and expanded its National Pancake Day in April.
There is one small snag you may be considering. If Ohio’s 7-Eleven locations aren't currently around Cincinnati (United Dairy Farmers fills that need), then why does it matter?
But it might not be long before the glow of the orange ‘7’ comes to our neck of the woods. 7-Eleven revealed in May that it had successfully acquired Speedway, an Ohio-based convenience store chain with locations all over the Tri-State area. Although there’s not much information on how or if the gas station chain will be rebranded, decisions will be made well into 2022, a 7-Eleven media representative told the Springfield News-Sun earlier this year. And in the meantime, you can always look for 7-Eleven throughout other parts of Ohio or on your road trips to other states.
