7-Eleven Million Points Giveaway
March 13, 2018 // Franchising.com // IRVING, TEXAS - With the Million Points Giveaway Sweepstakes, hungry and thirsty Americans have more reasons to sign up for the 7-Eleven, Inc. 7Rewards® loyalty program within the 7-Eleven app.
That’s because seven lucky people will get “rewards rich” by winning 1 MILLION 7REWARDS POINTS each, redeemable to buy top-selling food and drinks at participating 7-Eleven® stores. The sweepstakes runs through April 28, 2018, with winners drawn weekly.
In addition to multiple Million Points prizes, exclusive experiential prizes will also be awarded weekly. The prizes include a completely outfitted media room, trips to sporting events and racing weekends, live music events … and even a trip for two to Paris, France. Winning a million points will unofficially get customers to “Pointillionare” status, which allows customers to have an abundance of reward points and 7-Eleven products at their disposal.
The Million Points Giveaway coincides with the recent 7Rewards loyalty platform enhancement that adds a points-based loyalty program. Now 7-Eleven shoppers can easily earn points on almost everything they buy—approximately 80 percent of those available in the store. The in-app menu is designed to always provide the customer with what they want as it is curated with customer favorites.
“Our strategy to make every customer’s interaction with 7-Eleven valuable and delightful just got bigger and better. The enhanced 7Rewards app gives customers more ways to earn and redeem points in order to get free stuff,” said 7-Eleven Chief Digital Officer and Chief Information Officer Gurmeet Singh. “Giving away a million points each week gets our customers excited - just like the new 7Rewards points program grabbed their attention. Since the launch, we’ve gone from 9 million members to over 12 million and counting.”
What will 1 million points get you? A lot. For example, you could get approximately…
- 1,250 medium Slurpee® drinks;
- 833 Big Bite® hot dogs; or
- 500 Melt sandwiches;
Million Points winners don’t have to wait to redeem their points. They can use them whenever they want on any eligible product. Items are listed in the app and include hot and cold beverages and sandwiches, fresh and packaged bakery, snacks, candy and more. Customers must be registered to redeem their rewards and can do so via the app or the mobile site.
Entering is as easy as scanning the personal barcode in the 7-Eleven mobile app (available free through Google Play or the iTunes App store) when checking out. Purchase of a featured product earns an extra entry. A 7Rewards member can scan the app to enter up to six times a day or 42 times each week. The entry period starts over each week. In addition to scanning the app, customers can use their registered loyalty card or the bar code obtained by messaging the 7-Eleven Chat Bot on Facebook Messenger.

Originally, the 7Rewards loyalty program was a buy six hot beverages and get the seventh free. The “Buy Six-Get Seventh Free offer” was later expanded to include all proprietary 7-Eleven beverages sold in a cup. That beverage offer remains in the new expanded 7Rewards program.
