It's 7-Eleven Day! Free Slurpees For Everyone

July 11, 2018 - 7:47 am

DETROIT (WWJ) – Wednesday’s date is 7-11, and that means free Slurpees at 7-Eleven stores in Metro Detroit and across the country.

Between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on July 11, customers will be able to get a free 7.11-ounce Slurpee drink as a way to celebrate the company’s birthday.

An estimated 9 million Slurpees are expected to be given away this year.

7-Eleven has celebrated its birthday on July 11 for decades, but it wasn't until its 75th birthday in 2002 that its stores began hosting coast-to-coast birthday parties with free Slurpees.
