    This Saturday, July 11, 7-Eleven will hold its annual Free Slurpee Day.

    There's no better way to enjoy a summer day than with a Slurpee, and this weekend it won't cost you a thing. 

    To celebrate July 11 — or 7-Eleven Day — the convenience chain will be giving away their signature slushy drinks. Stop in the 7-Eleven nearest to you on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to get a free small Slurpee drink.

    This day marks the company's 88th birthday, which has become more popular over the years as the stores dubbed it Free Slurpee Day.

    Last year, 7-Eleven Day included a week-long celebration of freebies including Big Gulps, cookies, and Twinkies.

    Although this year will not be as generous, customers can receive up to $2 worth of food or drink daily if they buy a 7-Eleven drink and are members of the 7Rewards program, which can be downloaded through the mobile app.
