Instead of collecting gifts on its birthday, 7-Eleven is celebrating by giving away free Slurpees.
From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, customers can get a free small Slurpee, according to the company’s website.
Participating stores will give away an estimated 9 million Slurpees throughout the day, according to a statement from the company.
"7-Eleven Day has become the busiest day of the year for 7-Eleven stores as millions of both existing and new customers flock to our stores to celebrate with their favorite frozen drink and other special food deals," said Raj Kapoor, 7-Eleven senior vice president for fresh food and proprietary beverages. "This year we hope to expand the party outside our stores as Slurpee drink-lovers share photos of them and their birthday Slurpee drinks."
And, if one free drink isn’t enough, customers can download the store’s app, scan their free Slurpee, and a coupon for another Slurpee of any size with appear in the app the next day, according to the site. The second free Slurpee is good for 30 days.
