DALLAS - Sept. 14, 2015 // PRNewswire // - 7-Eleven®'s "Hundred Days of Summer" may have officially ended Labor Day Weekend, but Slurpee® season lasts all year long. And the world's largest convenience retailer is starting the fall season strong with a weeklong "Share a Slurpee" drink offer.
The Buy One-Get One Free deal runs every day from Monday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 20.
Customers who buy any size or flavor Slurpee drink can receive a second Slurpee drink free. The free Slurpee can be the same size as the one purchased, or smaller.
During the "Share a Slurpee" promotion, both the purchased and free Slurpee drinks count toward the 7Rewards "Buy Six, Get the Seventh Free" drink offer available on the 7-Eleven smartphone app.
To participate in the 7Rewards program, customers must use 7-Eleven's mobile app, available in the iTunes App Store or Google Play, and register as a member. The member's unique, scannable barcode and digital punch card are located on the app's home screen for easier use.
"Slurpee is a fun frozen treat, like a party in a cup," said Laura Gordon, vice president of marketing and brand innovation. "Lots of our customers bring family and friends with them when they stop by a 7-Eleven store for a Slurpee drink. This offer is not only a great value but also provides a week of opportunities to make new friends with a shared Slurpee. Some might even want to Slurp-it-Forward and brighten someone else's day with a free Slurpee."
