Free slurpees at 7-Eleven stores July 11

To celebrate its birthday, 7-Eleven will give away free, small slurpees this weekend.

On Saturday, the convenience-store chain's annual "7-Eleven Day" giveaway of icy-cold drinks in your choice of  flavors is from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at participating stores.

7-Eleven guests sip more than 14 million Slurpee beverages each month. Favorite flavors are Coca-Cola and Wild Cherry. Since introduced in 1966, some 7.2 billion Slurpee drinks have been sold, enough for every person on the planet, according to the chain's website. 

Also, get freebies each day through July 18 by downloading the free 7-Eleven app during 7Rewards Week. Buy a coffee, Chillers Iced Coffee, Slurpee or Big Gulp and scan the app to get free food or drink, while supplies last.
