7-Eleven to Give Out Free Slurpees in Honor of Its Anniversary
America’s fight against obesity gets the day off Monday when 7-Eleven hands out free Slurpees in honor of its unofficial birthday — July 11, or 7/11. Get it?
The convenience store expects it will hand out five million of the popular frozen treats weighing — you guessed it — 7.11 ounces.
Giving away all those drinks is sure to cost the chain a fortune, right? Wrong! Last year, when 7-Eleven ran the same promotion, Slurpee sales rocketed up like a brain freeze to your head by 38 percent.
