Why This is Wirefly BUZZworthy

Wirefly is here to remind you that Thursday, July 11, 2013 is Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven and its 86th birthday! One day a year, select 7-Eleven stores all over the country give away free 7.11 oz Slurpees from 11a.m-7p.m to celebrate its big day. 7/11 is a great day to get a Slurpee, so take a break from your rigorous workday and head over to your local store.

Wondering where the closest Slurpee machine is? Wirefly has got your back once again. 7-Eleven has created their very own smartphone app that locates 7-Eleven stores around you and will map directions to get you there. They also provide coupons, deals, or what they have on "menu" for that day. And the app is FREE!

Using this app on the Samsung Galaxy S 4, the hottest Android smartphone on the market, will make the app faster than you can imagine, so you can get to your free Slurpee ASAP. This smartphone also has dual cameras that work simultaneously so that you can take a video of your Slurpee cup filling up while showing the smile on your face getting bigger. Talk about a 4G-licious treat!

Creating an account on the 7-Eleven smartphone app will provide you with coupons and opportunities that those without the app will not have. In the mood for a donut? Check the app to see where the closest store is and look for a discount on one of the tabs! It's that easy.

My favorite Slurpee flavor is Blue Lightning Blast, but for those who enjoy less sugar in their day, 7-Eleven now offers Lite Slurpees!

So don't forget to head out to your local 7-Eleven on 7/11/13 for your free Slurpee or you will have to wait until next year. And while you're at it, send a photo to Wirefly and you could get your picture on the Wirefly website!

Final Verdict
