IRVING, Texas, Sept. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- What's better than one week of Buy One-Get One-Free Slurpee® drinks? How about two weeks?! 7-Eleven® just doubled down on last week's BOGO offer. That means Slurpee-lovers have another week to share a Slurpee or become a two-fisted Green Apple Skittles Slurpee drinker. Pace yourself.
The offer, which originally began Monday, Sept. 12, will now continue through Sunday, Sept. 25, at participating U.S. 7-Eleven stores. Customers who buy any size or flavor Slurpee drink can receive a second Slurpee drink free. The free Slurpee drink can be the same size as purchased or smaller.
Available exclusively at 7-Eleven stores this fall, the featured Slurpee flavor is Green Apple Skittles, which transforms the popular sour candy into a refreshing frozen Slurpee beverage.
"At 7-Eleven, we try to give our customers what they want, need and love," said Laura Gordon, vice president of marketing and brand innovation. "And they love Buy One-Get One Slurpee drinks. So much so that we decided to add a second week and extend the Slurpee party another week."
The retailer continues the Slurpee Fiftee Partee, celebrating the 50th birthday of its iconic frozen drink. Slurpee fans have celebrated with free Slurpee drinks on 7-Eleven Day (July 11), bringing crazy containers to fill with their favorite drink in March and again in August, and now two Share-a-Slurpee treat weeks.
Part of the Slurpee fun is capturing the experience with photos and sharing it on social media. 7-Eleven is using the hashtag #SLURPEE50 so Slurpee fans can share their experience on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat (username: REALLYSLURPEE).
"Lots of people have been spreading the Slurpee love and surprising people with the free drink they receive when they purchase one," Gordon said. "BOGO Slurpee is a great way to brighten someone else's day with a Slurp-it-Forward free Slurpee."
The 7-Eleven smartphone app is not mandatory to participate in the BOGO Free Slurpee drink event, but 7Rewards® members can count both the purchased and free Slurpee drinks 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 Apple 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.
