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.
