PHOENIX -- There's nothing better than an icy cold treat on a hot summer day. It's even more enjoyable when such a tasty treat is free, which it is today at 7-Eleven.

The convenience store is celebrating its 87th anniversary with some great giveaways for its customers.

The chain generally offers free small Slurpees every year on July 11, which it calls, appropriately enough, 7-Eleven Day.

This year, however, 7-Eleven is giving away free stuff for a full week. All you have to do is download the 7-Eleven app on your iPhone or Android device.

  • Saturday, July 12 -- Free Big Gulp
  • Sunday, July 13 -- Free M&M's Birthday Cake Chocolate Candies
  • Monday, July 14 -- Free Grandma's Cookies
  • Tuesday, July 15 -- Free Hostess Twinkies
  • Wednesday, July 16 -- Free Twix or Snickers Ice Cream Bar
  • Thursday, July 17 -- Free Quaker Chewy Yogurt Snack Back
  • Friday, July 18 -- Free Pillsbury Cookies
  • Saturday, July 19 -- Free Small Slurpee

The app is required to enjoy those freebies.

Friday's free 7-Eleven Day Slurpees are available at participating stores 11 a.m.-7 p.m.

What is your favorite Slurpee flavor? Are you a purist or do you mix it up?
