Heading out to 7-Eleven? Before you go, check out this list of 7-Eleven freebies and find out how you can get free food and drinks, Slurpees, and even free Redbox rentals at your local 7-Eleven.

Get Free Stuff at 7-Eleven With 7Rewards

7-Eleven has a rewards program called 7Rewards where you can use the 7-Eleven app (available for iOS and Android) to collect points for your purchases and use them to get rewards for free stuff like food, drinks, and more. It's a great rewards program that's available at all 7-Eleven locations in the U.S.

Not in the U.S.? If you're in Canada you can sign up for the 7Rewards program, too.

Free Stuff at Every Point Level

You can save up your 7-Eleven points to various levels to get better rewards. Here are some examples we've seen:

  • 800 points: Free food like donuts, cookies, granola bars, pizza slice, and drinks like Big Gulps, coffee, and Slurpees.
  • 1,200 points: Free candy bar, chips, bottle of soda, and hot dogs.
  • 1,500 points: Free premium snacks, bakery items, and nachos.
  • 2,000 points: Free lunch items like sandwiches or salads, or energy drinks.
  • 4,000 points: Free beef jerky or a whole pizza.

These rewards change often so be sure to check the website or app to see what you can redeem them for. Tap the points on the Home tab of the app to see the most current rewards, or open your 7Rewards account in a browser.

You can redeem these rewards by simply loading them onto your app and then scanning the app barcode when you check out. The amount of the reward item will be deducted from your total.

How to Get More 7Rewards Points

You can earn more points from scanning your app when you check out at 7-Eleven. You'll get 10 points for each $1 you spend (not all items are eligible).

There are also bonus points available when you purchase certain items at 7-Eleven. They're already loaded into your reward program so you'll get the points when you scan your app barcode.

The bonus point offers change frequently, but I've seen bonus points available for purchases on taquitos, bottled drinks, chips, nachos, beef jerky, big gulps, energy drinks, juice, gum and mints, over the counter medicine, bakery items, and coffee.

In the 7-Eleven app are games you can play to earn more 7Rewards points. One I've seen is to move the on-screen Slurpee around the screen and then take a selfie. Share it with anyone through any of your social media or messaging apps, and you'll get 100 points. You can play that game once per week.

Depending on how you earned your 7Rewards points, it might take up to 24 hours to see them in your account.

7Rewards Coupons

Coupons for certain items are also available as part of the 7Rewards app, and these also change frequently. Some are available in limited quantities, so you'll want to be quick to use any that you're interested in. These will get you money off your purchase.

I've seen coupons available for drinks, chips, cookies, pizza, and over the counter medicine before.

7Rewards Punch Cards

A virtual punch card is also available as part of the app, allowing you to get one free 7-Eleven hot drink, iced coffee, Big Gulp, Gulp cold drink, or Slurpee drink of any size for every six drinks that you buy.

Free Slurpees from 7-Eleven

Every summer on July 11th, 7-Eleven celebrates Free Slurpee Day by giving customers a small Slurpee in any available flavor.

Free 7-Eleven Redbox Rentals

Many 7-Eleven's have Redbox kiosks outside and there are lots of codes available that will get you free Redbox movies and games rentals.

Also, keep your eyes open for 7-Eleven specific Redbox promotions that may appear on signs on the Redbox kiosk or on your receipt.
