7-Eleven won’t serve cake at its birthday party Thursday.
Instead America’s largest convenience store chain will give away an estimated 9 million free small Slurpee drinks while supplies last from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time July 11, a day known as 7-Eleven Day and Free Slurpee Day.
No coupon is necessary, but be prepared to wait in a long line.
“7-Eleven Day has become the busiest day of the year for 7-Eleven stores as millions of both existing and new customers flock to our stores to celebrate with their favorite frozen drink and other special food deals,” said Raj Kapoor, 7-Eleven senior vice president for fresh food and proprietary beverages, in a statement.
The company started the free Slurpee drink birthday tradition in 2002 on its 75th birthday.
