Channeling Bill Pullman circa the first Independence Day:
"The 11th of July will no longer be known as — uh, Monday — but as the day when the world declared in one voice:
Today we celebrate ... Free Slurpee Day."
Happy 50th, Slurpees.
To celebrate the golden anniversary, and snag one of the 7-Eleven’s tasty, sugary frozen drinks, stop by at any of the stores from 11 a.m.- 7 p.m. In return, you’ll receive a small-sized Slurpee of your flavored choice — “Birthday Cake” is this year’s limited-edition flavor.
But there’s more. If you have the 7-Eleven app and you’re a member of the 7Rewards Program (that’s a thing), purchase seven Slurpees of any size by July 18 to earn 11 free drinks for future use.
Note: Hawaii excluded, because apparently island paradise is enough for you.
Looking for more fast food freebies? You missed IHOP’s Free Pancake Day and Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day, but tomorrow is Chick-fil-A’s Cow Appreciation, where those who dress like a cow will get a free meal.
