Brain-freeze addicts rejoice! 7-Eleven is bringing back its popular BYO Cup Day, which invites customers to bring their own cups into a 7-Eleven store and fill it with Slurpee for $3.00. The only rule is that your receptacle needs to fit through a "hole checker". (So no freight containers, presumably.)

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.


The 'Xpandinator' is a free Slurpee contraption from 7-Eleven that gives you a significantly larger serving inside your cup. It is compatible with all Slurpee sizes and can be re-used indefinitely -- in other words, it's basically a free upgrade that lasts forever. On the downside, it has a bizarre top-heavy design that can lead to catastrophic Slurpee spills. Here's how it handled in practice.


7-Eleven has announced it will be expanding into Western Australia this year, bringing an end to a 37-year Slurpee drought in the region. A projected 75 stores are expected to open in the next five years with the first 11 arriving in 2014. May your Slurpee cup runneth over!


Five days of free Slurpees begins today at 7-Eleven -- but unlike previous years where everyone could score a free Slurpee simply by showing up, this year you need to get a voucher in advance for a specific date. Check out our original post for all the details.


Yes, we know we're getting in several days in advance, but when it comes to free stuff, we favour advance planning. Next Monday (November 7) is 7-Eleven Day, which the chain celebrates by giving out free small slurpees between, obviously, 7am and 11pm.
