You can fill a fishbowl, pineapple or other "acceptable vessel" this Friday and Saturday at 7-Eleven. Or, visit Wendy's for a deal on a Frosty.

The Slurpee is celebrating its 50th birthday all year, and this weekend is Bring Your Own Cup Day.

Technically, it’s two days: Friday and Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. both days.

During those hours, you’ll be able to bring in a cup or other acceptable vessel of your choice to 7-Eleven and fill it with the Slurpee flavor of your choice for $1.50.

While 7-Eleven cites a fishbowl and pineapple as examples of acceptable vessels, there are a few rules. Your “cup” must:

  • Fit upright through a 10-inch hole
  • Be clean
  • Be watertight

A toaster and sneaker are cited as examples of unacceptable containers.

There’s also a one-cup-per-person rule.

If you prefer a Wendy’s Frosty over a 7-Eleven Slurpee — or want one of each — the Wendy’s treat is available at a discount too.

Wendy’s announced this week that the small Frosty, in chocolate or vanilla, is 50 cents for a limited time.

This offer is available at participating locations, so you might want to call ahead to confirm a specific restaurant is offering it.
