Free Slurpees and more during ‘7-Eleven Week’

When it’s hot as Hades like this, it’s the most anticipated day of the summer: 7-Eleven Day.

The annual event has been going on so long, it’s part of our DNA here in Florida. The first slurps of the frozen sweet treat bring on hurts-so-good brain freeze and lowers our core temperature from stifling to just merely sweaty.

On Friday, July 11 visit any participating 7-Eleven store from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. and get a free small Slurpee drink, no purchase necessary.

This year the holiday has been extended to ‘7-Eleven Week’ and comes with its own mobile app.

Download the app to your mobile device and you can get free stuff every day from July 12 through July 19. The app is available for both iPhones and Android devices.

Free stuff on offer during the week include Big Gulps, Grandma’s Cookies, Hostess Twinkies, Twix ice cream bars, M&Ms and more.

Free Slurpee and other treats are available at participating 7-Eleven store locations, while supplies last.
