7-Eleven won’t serve cake at its birthday party Thursday.

Instead America’s largest convenience store chain will give away an estimated 9 million free small Slurpee drinks while supplies last from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time July 11, a day known as 7-Eleven Day and Free Slurpee Day.

No coupon is necessary, but be prepared to wait in a long line.

“7-Eleven Day has become the busiest day of the year for 7-Eleven stores as millions of both existing and new customers flock to our stores to celebrate with their favorite frozen drink and other special food deals,” said Raj Kapoor, 7-Eleven senior vice president for fresh food and proprietary beverages, in a statement.

The company started the free Slurpee drink birthday tradition in 2002 on its 75th birthday.

Also on Thursday, 7-Eleven will have $1 Big Bite hot dogs, pizza slices and cherry Slurpee drink-flavored cookies. 7Rewards members will have a $1 Nashville hot chicken tender offer in the 7-Eleven app.

For celebrating 7-Eleven’s 92nd birthday Thursday, 7Rewards members can get an extra freebie.

All members of the loyalty program who scan their app, card or enter their phone number when they get their free small Slurpee Thursday will receive a free any-size Slurpee to redeem July 12 through Aug. 12.

Sign up for 7Rewards or download the app at www.7-eleven.com/7rewards.

Also place an order Friday using the 7NOW delivery app and get a free medium Slurpee drink. If you’re new using 7NOW, delivery is free on the first three orders.
