July 11 marks the Free Slurpee Day for those many people who like to enjoy such treats. This is also called the 7-Eleven Day and many freebie enthusiasts out there are eager to get their hands on the delicious Slurpees.
Basically, each customer gets his or her free Slurpee and is free to chose the flavor he or she wants. The good news for them is that the free Slurpees are getting bigger by the year, as the company is known to have bumped up the free drink from 7.11 ounces to 12 ounces within the past years.
In 2014, 7-Eleven also started giving away free cookies, Big Gulps and Twinkies along with the larger beverage. Moreover, the Free Slurpee Day was extended to a free Slurpee week, adding to the delight of many customers.
However, this year the company might not be as generous as it used to be. They announced that the free treats will be given away as usual. Each customer will receive a small-sized Slurpee this Saturday, starting from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
Those who want to benefit from the free treat do not need to buy anything, but the promotion will only be held while supplies last.
In order to attract customers on Sunday as well, the company has decided that they can receive free food that is worth no more than $ 2 dollars as long as they purchase a drink of their choice and they are members of their 7 Rewards program and have downloaded the mobile application.
Slurpee is very popular with Americans in general. It is a frozen carbonated beverage that has a syrupy taste and it is, in most cases technicolored.
The idea for such an ice drink that gives you the feeling of frozen brain came to Omar Kedlik in 1950, when his soda fountain stopped working, which prompted him to put the soda in the freezer to keep it cold. The result was this nice beverage that encouraged him to invent the first machine that makes frozen drinks.
This is how Slurpee was born, several years later. The Slurpee comes in many flavors but the most common ones are Mountain Dew, Coke and cherry. The company has made it a habit to introduce new flavors on a regular basis.
The Free Slurpee Day dates back from 2002, when the company started giving away a free beverage to the first 1,000 customers. Now the company is much more generous than it used to be, so that as many people as possible can enjoy the occasion.
