Free Slurpee Day is here!

7-Eleven stores across the country are giving away free Slurpees today to celebrate the 86th anniversary of the company. The frosty drinks are available from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in 7.11-ounce cups.

The stores are offering special, limited-time flavors just for the months of July and August, such as Slurpee Lite Sugar Free Mango Lemonade and Slurpee Strawberry Lemonshade. They also have a mobile app chock-full of coupons for free and discounted items like drinks and Snickers Ice Cream Bars.

According to the company’s website, the Slurpee was born when the founder had to stick bottles of soda in the freezer when the refrigerator broke down. Because it was such a hot day, customers formed a line out the door to get one of the cold, slushy drinks. Now, the Slurpee is a staple of the business and boasts several different flavors.

    My son just walked a mile and a 1/2 in 85 degree weather for his free slurpee…Didn’t get it, they ran out of cups! And they refused to give him one in a coffee cup.

    Your offer of Free Slurpees on July 11 is a joke! My 11 year old and I went to several local 7-11 stores and they said that the Slurpee machine was broken, or they ran out of cups. You shouldn’t make an offer like that and not be prepared for it. That’s just bad business.

    Yeah, the folks @ my local 7/11 were so rude to me…How dare I ask for a free slurpee @ 7:08pm…I didn’t know they renamed the store 11/7 that’s not an all day free slurpee day! :{

    I went with my daughter @ 615 pm they said they were out of cups. Even though it said until 7. Luckly I had a refill coming fir 99 cause I bought a big mug.
