PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – 7-Eleven is celebrating its 87th birthday with a full week (actually eight days) of free offers, beginning Friday, or “7-Eleven Day.”

Probably best known as “Free Slurpee 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.

In addition, participating 7-Eleven stores also are offering ¼-pound Big Bite® hot dogs this Friday for $1 as part of the birthday celebration.

But 7-Eleven says that’s not the end of the party. Each day through Saturday, July 19, a coupon for a different, free item will be featured on 7-Eleven’s smartphone app.

  • Saturday, July 12: Big Gulp® soft drink
  • Sunday, July 13: M&M’s Birthday Cake Flavor candies
  • Monday, July 14: Grandma’s Cookies
  • Tuesday, July 15: Hostess Twinkies
  • Wednesday, July 16: Snickers or Twix brand ice cream bar
  • Thursday, July 17: Quaker Chewy Yogurt snack bar
  • Friday, July 18: Pillsbury cookie
  • Saturday, July 19: Small Slurpee drink

 

 

To receive each day’s free offer, 7-Eleven says 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.

Reminder: The 7-Eleven app is not required to receive a free Slurpee drink on 7-Eleven Day (Friday, July 11).
