Customers can also get a coupon for a second free Slurpee. If you scan your app, card, or phone number on the 7-Eleven app after getting the free drink, a free Slurpee coupon will appear in the coupon section of the app. The coupon is good for 30 days, until August 12.

And, customers can get a third free Slurpee - this one a medium size - by placing a 7-Eleven delivery order through the 7NOW delivery app on July 12. 7NOW delivery is free for the first three orders.

July 11 has become 7-Eleven's busiest day of the year, according to the company. The chain began offering free Slurpees to celebrate its birthday in 2002, and has continued the tradition every year since. "Since inventing convenience retailing in 1927, 7-Eleven has continued innovating on behalf of customers for more than 92 years," 7-Eleven CEO Joe DePinto said in a statement.

"Fifty years ago, that meant introducing America to Slurpee, 7-Eleven's beloved brand," DePinto continued. "Today, our customer obsession drives digital innovation, like our 7Rewards loyalty app, scan and pay mobile checkout, under 30-minute delivery with the new 7NOW app, and product innovations like Nitro Cold Brew Coffee, Roamer canned wine, cold-pressed juices, hot entrees and many more."
