Ive got soooooo many free slurpee and several other coupons for 7-11 already. Worked on a 7-11 employees car and he gave me a huge coupon book for free stuff at 7-11. Been there almost everyday for free stuff for a month straight. Slurpees and taquitos have been my diet for a month now.

I don't have any 7-11s in my area. They haven't really penetrated deep into the culture of the semi-rural areas of the Great Plains.

I had everything planned out - I needed to get gas, and there's a 7-11 near work, so I would've just stopped in for gas and picked one up. If all else fails, I could've just walked across the street for one. Alas, my wife had a doctor's appointment today, so I didn't go to work. :(

I passed by 4 different ones today, but didn't have time to stop. Fortunately, on the way home from dropping my wife off, I remembered there was a hybrid 7-11/Mobile station. They weren't advertising Free Slurpee Day, but they still had the cups tucked away. I grabbed myself some of the Lemon Creme Fanta - not bad, but at least I got my free slurpee finally. I've missed out on the past 2 years. :(

Less than 2 days to go.

They'll have the Big Bite weenies for $1.00 a pop that day, too.

Aaaannd don't forget the 7-11 App so you can pick up all sortsa free stuff throughout the week after the SLurpee promotion.

https://www.7-eleven.com/7-Eleven-Day

Weird how it all comes full circle with a free small Slurpee drink on the 19th with the App...


Title: Re: Slurp it down 'til brain-freeze sets in
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on July 09, 2014, 09:22:24 PM
Problem is, 7-Eleven got rid of the support for the app on my phone. :'(
I'll still grab a free drink on Slurpee Day though.

I am not sure about other parts of the country, but there is a 7-11 almost every 5th block, I honestly think there are more of them than starbucks, I abuse this offer in multiple stores every year.

Every fifth block? that's pathetic! I have 17 of them within a five-mile radius of my house! So what's it like living in the third world?  :P

All right, less than seven hours 'til showtime on the left coast.

And don't forget the $1.00 Big Bites; there's nothin' like wrapping your lips 'round a plump weenie.

Speaking of which: I'm surprised Raze hasn't posted a reply yet this year. I sure hope he's all right...

Ended up hitting 14 stores total today, all of which within my actual city of Lakewood, never had to step outside the city limits, if I had a longer lunch, I might have went even more crazy.

Went at 9:30, I was denied a free slurpee. I'm calling the icee police and demanding justice.


Title: Re: Slurp it down 'til brain-freeze sets in
Post by: Boshamp on July 11, 2014, 10:02:20 PM
If only it worked like other things in life and you just had to threaten to go buy an ICEE in order for 7-11 to freak out and give you the free Slurpee to prevent that from happening.

Now, THAT's more like it!

Sadly, I wasn't into it this year like I was last; I merely matched last year's total of 5...

...but I only went to three different 7-11s. I'm such a highly regarded regular at the two nearest me, they let me have two each!

Now to use that app for other free stuff all week long...

Thankfully, most of the locations let me take two at a time as well since my wife stayed in the car with the baby and it was just my son and I going in each time.

Out of all the Slurpee flavors I tried, I think my favorites were mixing lemonade with cherry and the Sprite. Good ol' Mtn Dew never disappointed either.

Huh, maybe kids are useful for something after all; who'da thunk it.

I dunno what it was, but I had a different flavor Slurpee each time, and they all tasted pretty much the same to me. Didn't much care for the new lemonade flavor, and the LeBron Sprite mix was downright dull.

BTW didja pick up any Slurpee apparel at all?

They also had caps, sunglasses, and a few other tchochkes.

What, is your survival hinging on my response or something? Just chill, willya? Huh, funny I should put it that way...

ANYway, if you must know, I just had one. I wasn't well enough to go hoppin' from store to store that day.

I don't have any by me. :(  Can you send me one, Zag?

Well, that explains the desperate nature of your wanting to know how many free Slurpees I grabbed that day. No 7-11s in your area? Sheesh, what kinda third-world hellhole are you living in, anyway? Probably due to your relatively close proximity to Canada. That's why it's really important that you vote for The_8-Bit_Donald in the general election...

ANYway, I'd be more than happy to send you a little of what you've been missing. Just PM me your mailing addie, and I'll send one out to you toot-sweet.

Im working my 11th straight night shift. I had to buy milk from a gas station on my way home from work, so I could eat breakfast yesterday morning. Slurpee stop at 711 was not a high priority for me.
