The convenience store chain has returned with free Slurpees for its birthday this year but can you still get one?

The chain is celebrating its birthday by giving away freebies at participating locations across the US.

The tradition has been going on for already 19 years but this year it’s slightly different due to ongoing pandemic.

Here’s how to get your freebie from 7-Eleven.



Is 7-Eleven still giving free Slurpees?

Yes, 7-Eleven is still giving free Slurpees.

Members can redeem their freebies throughout the month of July from the chain’s 7Rewards loyalty program.

The actual 7-Eleven day (July 11th) has been cancelled for a second year in a row but the great news is that you can get a free Slurpee any day throughout the whole month.

“You might think after 94 years, anyone would know that a birthday lasts for only one day – and that you are supposed to get gifts on that day. But not 7‑Eleven,” the chain wrote in a statement.

“Once again, the iconic brand will start giving things away for its birthday. And not just on the actual date, July 11 (aka 7/11 aka “7‑Eleven Day”). No, 7‑Eleven, Inc. will party all month long this July to mark its 94th birthday and its invention of convenience retailing.”

The brain has already dropped the coupon into the accounts of 7Rewards loyalty app members which can be redeemed any day in July.

Those of you who are new and join the scheme at or from the app, can also redeem their coupons by the end of July.

What is 7-eleven day?

This day is marked to celebrate the chain’s birthday. 7-Eleven is America’s largest convenience store chain.

The tradition started back in 2002 when the brand marked their 75th birthday.

July 11th has become 7-Eleven’s busiest day of the year. In previous years, the chain has invited the likes of some celebrities such as Zendaya and Derek Hough.

More deals for rewards members

In addition to the freebies, 7-Eleven has announced a couple of deals for 7Rewards loyalty app members. These include:

  •  Small Slurpee drinks are just $1 in the new Slurpee stay cold cup at participating 7‑Eleven stores.
  • All roller grill items, including Big Bite hot dogs, tasty taquitos, Cheeseburger Bite rollers, Buffalo chicken rollers and eggrolls are also only $1 throughout July.
  • The chain is offering whole pizzas for only $5 and a $10 pizza and 16 boneless wings combo.
