7-Eleven Offering Free Slurpee on 7/11

2016 also marks the 50th anniversary of the convenience store chain's trademark frozen drink, which they're celebrating with "Slurpee Week."

  • Published 9 July 2016

Every year on 11 July, popular convenience store chain 7-Eleven offers a free small Slurpee (its signature frozen drink).  While it is true that you can get free Slurpees on “7-Eleven Day,” the usual caveats — at participating stores, while supplies last — apply:

Slurpee Fiftee

2016 is the fiftieth anniversary of the Slurpee’s creation, and so the chain has unveiled new flavors for “Slurpee Fiftee“: Birthday Cake.  Participating stores will also offer birthday donuts, Slurpee-flavored cotton candy, and Slurpee-flavored Chapstick.

July 2016 also ushers in not just Slurpee Day, but Slurpee Week.  Beginning on 12 July, customers who buy seven drinks receive eleven free ones  — but only through the 18th.

Most Snopes assignments begin when readers ask us, “Is this true?” Those tips launch our fact-checkers on sprints across a vast range of political, scientific, legal, historical, and visual information. We investigate as thoroughly and quickly as possible and relay what we learn. Then another question arrives, and the race starts again.

We do this work every day at no cost to you, but it is far from free to produce, and we cannot afford to slow down. To ensure Snopes endures — and grows to serve more readers — we need a different kind of tip: We need your financial support.

Support Snopes so we continue to pursue the facts — for you and anyone searching for answers.
