7-Eleven is celebrating the Slurpee’s 50th anniversary this month by doubling down on the convenience store chain’s second annual Bring Your Own Cup event.
Between11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Friday, March 18, and Saturday, March 19, Slurpee lovers can bring just about anything remotely resembling a cup to participating 7-Eleven stores and fill it with their favorite frozen flavor for $1.50.
Here’s what you need to know before heading to 7-Eleven armed with trashcans.
Each person can only bring in one cup-like container, which must fit upright through an in-store display with a 10-inch diameter hole. Cups cannot be more than 9 inches wide and 11 inches tall and must be leak-proof, safe and sanitary.
So, no kitchen sinks, inflatable pools or trash cans.
If you don’t have an oversized container and still want the deal, 7-Eleven is selling collectible 64-ounce mason jar-style refillable cups sporting the “Slurpee 50” celebration logo for $4.99 each – and the first fill is free.
Exclusive Slurpee flavors include Airheads Xtremes Rainbow Berry and Diet Coke FROST with a Splash of Cherry.
You can also share your Slurpee experience with photos on social media platforms by using the hashtag #BYOCupDay.
7-Eleven’s BYOCup Day event is held at participating 7-Eleven stores in the US, as well as stores in Australia, Canada, the Philippines and Malaysia.
