Sometimes, the cups they have at 7-Eleven just can’t hold enough Slurpee to get you through the day or even through the door. Saturday brings about the chance to change that as 7-Eleven presents “Bring Your Own Cup Day” which pretty much allows to you bring in the cup, and they fill it up with Slurpee.
On Saturday, April 11, 7-Eleven (or 7-11) will allow customers to bring in their own cups and fill them at the Slurpee machine for just $1.49, according to Business Insider. It almost sounds too good to be true, but Bring Your Own Cup Day is a real thing.
There is a bit of a catch though. Your cup has to fit into the circle that is in the cardboard standee at the store.
As you can see, you’re allowed to use cups, pots, a trophy, bottles, hats, buckets, and just about anything that will hold Slurpees. If it fits into that 10-inch diameter cardboard cut-out, then you pay $1.49 and get your Slurpee.
Now, this doesn’t mean you can bring in every single thing that will fit in the circle. Don’t bring in like a dirty shoe or a colander — both for obvious reasons.
It won’t be all day on Saturday either. You must go to your local 7-Eleven between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. locally. That $1.49 price is the average cost of a 22-ounce medium Slurpee on any other day.
USA Today reports that the Bring Your Own Cup Day promotion is going to happen at the estimated 7,700 domestic 7-Eleven locations on Saturday. It’s being done as Slurpee’s early “summer kickoff,” per Laura Gordon, vice president of marketing and brand innovation at 7-Eleven
The Slurpee drinks purchased on BYOC Day will count as a punch on your 7Rewards, the 7-Eleven loyalty program of buy six drinks and get the seventh free.
So, when all is said and done, here are the rules for Bring Your Own Cup Day at 7-Eleven:
