The event was meant to take place this weekend, but the company has pushed it back. They have yet to announce a new date.

“The health, safety and protection of 7-Eleven Canada customers and employees is our top priority, and we are closely monitoring the direction provided by Canadian public health officials,” states the press release. “Out of an abundance of caution, 7-Eleven Canada is suspending its Bring Your Own Cup promotion previously scheduled for March 13 and 14. We hope to reschedule the Bring Your Own Cup promotion for later this year.”

It’s almost time to get your slurpee fill, as 7-Eleven is encouraging you to bring your own cup and fill it up for $2.

And when they say, “cup,” it can really be anything. Bring a bucket, teapot, trophy – you name it.

“This Slurpee fan-favourite event always brings out the wackiest containers,” states the press release. “Slurpee fans love to get creative on this day.”

And this year, 7-Eleven is encouraging people get extra creative, by making their containers their own, with DIY decorations.

When getting their slurpee, customers can choose from several flavours. That includes Mountain Dew Blue Shock, Powerade Mixed Berry,  Crush Cream Soda Lite, Mug Root Beer, Crush Lime and Crush Orange.

The event will happen at locations across Canada.

Containers must be smaller than 26cm in diameter and must be water-tight with no leakage. It must also be food safe clean.

Other deals coming up soon include a Buy-One-Get-One deal at Dairy Queen. Or head to Pizza Hut for their BOGO deal.
