Free Slurpees on 7/11 to mark 7-Eleven's Birthday

The convenience store is giving away 5 million of its signature slush ice drink.

Time for your afternoon pick-me-up drink? Pick up a cold one at 7-Eleven - the convenience store chain is giving away Slurpees for its 84th birthday.

Convenience store chain 7-Eleven is celebrating its 84th birthday today by giving away 5-million free 7.11-ounce Slurpees. The offer is good while supplies last and has a limit of one per customer.

“Even without the five million free Slurpee drinks, July is the biggest month of the year for Slurpee sales,” said Jesus Delgado-Jenkins, 7-Eleven’s senior vice president of merchandising, marketing and logistics in a news release. “What better drink for the hottest month of the year.”

Bellevue has six 7-Eleven locations: 

  • 7-Eleven 3233 156th Ave SE , Bellevue , WA 98007
  • 7-Eleven 2353 140th Ave NE , Bellevue , WA 98005
  • 7-Eleven 15 148th Ave NE , Bellevue , WA 98007
  • 7-Eleven 10328 Main St , Bellevue , WA 98004
  • 7-Eleven 3711 Factoria Blvd SE , Bellevue , WA 98006
  • 7-Eleven 827 164th Ave NE , Bellevue , WA 98008

The annual free Slurpee event has taken place since 2002 when 7-Eleven celebrated its 75th birthday. Two years ago 7-Eleven gave out 3-million Slurpees but recently increased its supply to 5 million free Slurpees to accommodate added publicity of the offer via social media.

More than 3,700,000 people “like” the Slurpee page on Facebook and up until today, slurpee.com had a banner running at the top of the page counting down to 7-Eleven Day. Also, Twitter has two pages to help promote the event, @slurpee and @7eleven.
