It’s July 11th – an ordinary Thursday by any means, right? Wrong. It’s 7-11, which means it’s 7-Eleven Free Slurpee Day! Every year as it does, the national convenience store hosts 7-Eleven Day to celebrate its birthday, doling out free Slurpees to thirsty patrons. From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. (duh) on Thursday, July, 11, Boston-area 7-Eleven stores (as well as national 7-Eleven stores) are offering free 12 ounce cups of Slurpees to all customers, while supplies last. It’s a small but sugary, icy, tasty, free reward on a hot Thursday afternoon, and you shouldn’t pass it up. Below, we’ve got a list of 7-Eleven stores in the Boston area to get your free Slurpee on 7-11.
Eighty-six years ago in Dallas, Texas, the first 7-Eleven store was open for business, however, the invention of the Slurpee didn’t come about until 1967, 40 years after the store was founded. America grew to love the icy treat, and this year on free Slurpee day, the chain is expected to give away 7 million free Slurpees, which amounts to $7.6 million worth.
New this year to free Slurpee Day is the 12 ounce cup size. Last year and in years past, the chain regulated free Slurpee day to 7.11 ounce sized cups, but decided to upgrade this summer due to consumer complaints that the small cups had no lids. “Moms asked us for cups with lids,” a spokesperson for 7-Eleven told USA Today.
Head to your nearest 7-Eleven today, on 7-11 for a free Slurpee. Enjoy!
