49-Cent Slurpee at 7-Eleven During Memorial Day Weekend
Cheap drinks are awesome
Slurpee fans rejoice. To kick off the Memorial Day weekend -- and the beginning of summer vacation -- 7-Eleven will be slapping a 49-cent price tag on their medium-sized Slurpees beginning Friday, May 24. The deal will go on all weekend long until Monday, May 27, and has been timed in order to celebrate the convenience store's new product -- Slurpee Lite Sugar Free Sprite.
Slurpee Lite has no sugar, is flavored with Splenda and racks up to 20 calories for an eight ounce serving. Other new flavors that will be rolling out over the next few months, including Oddball Orange, Sugar Free Mango Lemonade and Strawberry Lemonshade.
But, wait there's more. The 7-Eleven app for smartphones will also be giving out coupons all summer long for free Slurpee drinks and Snickers Ice Cream Bars. That's a lot of freebies. You're welcome.
