Bring Your Own Slurpee Cup Day At 7-Eleven
It's a BIG day on Saturday for Slurpee fans! 7-Eleven has announced that they will be holding their first "Bring Your Own Cup Day" from 11am to 7pm at 7-Eleven stores throughout the United States. Customers can fill up any cup they bring into the store for the $1.49 average price of a 22-ounce medium Slurpee. Now, before you get too carried away...keep in mind that there are some rules for the promotion. According to a report from USA Today, here's what you need to keep in mind:
Your "cup" can't be a trash can (too big) or a cowboy boot (too unsanitary) or a baseball cap (too porous.) But most clean, water-tight vessels that are no bigger than 10 inches in diameter meet the requirements. The cups must be able to fit through a the 10-inch diameter hole posted on special, stand-up signs this Saturday by store Slurpee machines.
And you're welcome. I did some calling and the locations in Mid-Michigan that WILL BE PARTICIPATING include:
7-Eleven @ 1997 AURELIUS RD IN HOLT
7-Eleven @ 311 GROVE ST (NEAR HOPCAT) IN EAST LANSING
7-Eleven @ 918 E. GRAND RIVER IN EAST LANSING
7-Eleven @ 3500 OKEMOS RD IN OKEMOS
7-Eleven @ 2900 AIRPORT RD IN JACKSON
