slurpee

Ever year on July 11, 7-Eleven typically offers customers a celebratory free slurpee to honor its birthday. This year, COVID-19 has changed those celebrations.

Instead of celebrating 7-Eleven Day, the chain will donate one million meals to Feeding America.

“Gathering nine million of our closest friends in stores on one day just didn’t feel right,” said 7‑Eleven Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Marissa Jarratt, “but I am heartened that we now have the opportunity to help the communities and neighborhoods that have been the lifeline of our business since 1927.”

The good news: You can still grab free slurpees this summer. On July 1, 7Rewards loyalty app members will receive one free medium slurpee coupon in their account to be used throughout the entire month of July—this way, slurpee lovers can get their fix while following proper social distancing rules.
