Mark your calendars. Once again, 7-Eleven is celebrating its birthday on 7-Eleven Day, Thursday, July 11, 2013. Participating stores in the U.S. and Canada will give away free 7.11-ounce Slurpee drinks between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., local time.
“7-Eleven Day, or free Slurpee Day, gets bigger and more popular every year,” said Joe DePinto, 7-Eleven president and CEO.
More Free Goodies At 7-11
Those who haven’t downloaded 7-Eleven’s smartphone app (available via the App Store or Google Play) might want to do so to take advantage of #Awesummer mobile coupons for free and on value offers, treats and eats all summer long.
Each week through Labor Day, exclusive coupons for goodies, like free Slurpee drinks and free Snickers Ice Cream Bars as well as other special offers, will appear on the 7-Eleven app. The free products are available at participating stores, while supplies last.
To receive a link to download the 7-Eleven app, users with iPhone (iOS) – and Android-powered phones can text APP to 711711. 7-Eleven fans can also receive twice-a-month text notifications of special offers by texting DEALS to 711711.
“We expect to offer more than 30 coupons for free merchandise plus lots of additional value offers on our most popular products,” said Laura Gordon, 7-Eleven vice president of brand innovation. “The app is free, so the return on investment is, shall we say, ‘#Awesummer.’”
In addition to popular everyday flavors, the Slurpee flavor line-up includes for the second half of the 2013 summer a “Slurpee Lite Sugar Free Fanta® Mango Lemonade flavor” and a Slurpee Fanta® Strawberry Lemonshade flavor”
