I like it when companies have birthdays. They sometimes celebrate by giving away stuff that we might actually want.
So 7-Eleven is celebrating its 87th birthday with a full week (more like eight days) of free offers, beginning Friday, July 11, or 7-Eleven Day. Best known as FREE SLURPEE® DRINK DAY, July 11 is the day the convenience retailer gives away millions of Slurpee drinks to toast its birthday. Between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. at participating stores, visitors can receive a free small Slurpee drink while supplies last. This is the 12th year the convenience retailer has offered free Slurpee drinks on its birthday.
Of course the Slurpee is a major beverage for geeks of all ages. But the next giveaways are easier to get if you are a geek, have the right tools and are not technically challenged.
Each day for the celebration week through Saturday, July 24, a coupon for a different, free item will be featured on 7-Eleven's smartphone app.
The new updated daily birthday offers are:
July 15: Free Hostess® Twinkie® (single serve)
July 16: Free SNICKERS® or TWIX ® Brand Ice Cream bar
July 17: Free Quaker® Chewy® Yogurt Snack Bar
July 18: Free Pillsbury Cookie (all flavors)
July 19: Free Small Slurpee drink
July 20: Free Big Gulp® drink
July 21: Free M&M Birthday Cake Candy
July 22: Free Grandma's Sandwich Crème Cookies (3.0–3.025 oz size)
July 23: Free Big Gulp® drink
July 24: Free Small Slurpee drink
To receive each day's free offer, a customer must first download and register on the 7-Eleven app. A customer opens the 7-Eleven app at the store and shows the member barcode to the sales associate at checkout. The bar code appears below the coupons. Once the associate scans the barcode at the register, the customer will receive the item as they check out. Quantities are limited, and the free items are available at participating stores while supplies last. The offer is limited to one free item per person, per day.
There's a summer flavor theme to the celebration. Two limited-edition Slurpee drink flavors are among choices at 7-Eleven – Lemonade, made with real fruit juice, and Slurpee Lite™ Sugar-Free Fanta Watermelon Punch. Participating 7-Eleven stores also are offering ¼-pound Big Bite® hot dogs this Friday for $1 as part of the birthday celebration. Adding to the already great value, customers can top these dollar-dogs with their choice of condiments like mustard, catsup, onions, relish, chili and hot melted cheese for no extra charge.
