Level Up Your Slurpee, Big Gulp and Coffee Game with A Year's Worth of Refills
Extremely-Limited-Edition 7‑Eleven® Gamer's Cups Offer Buyers 15 Entries to Win a PlayStation®5 Console
IRVING, Texas (Feb. 8, 2021) – The new 7‑Eleven, Inc. ultimate gamer's cups are extreme. Extremely cool, extremely collectible … and they could be extremely lucky. The premier name in convenience retailing is back with new extremely-limited-edition cups for each of its signature proprietary beverages – Slurpee®, Big Gulp® and coffee. Purchase includes a year's worth of free beverages*, redeemed by scanning the 7Rewards® barcode in the 7‑Eleven app, and a chance to win a PlayStation®5 console… Actually, make that 15 chances**.
Available exclusively on the convenience retailer's 7‑Eleven.com website, the ultimate gamer's cups go on sale Feb 9 at 12 noon CST and are expected to sell out quickly.
"If last time we did this is any indicator, we know these new ultimate gamer's cups are going to sell fast and become instant collector's items," said 7‑Eleven Chief Marketing Officer Marissa Jarratt. "7‑Eleven beverages have some really enthusiastic fans, as does gaming. About 75% of people have at least one gamer in their household, so I suspect the cups will be snatched up instantly. This is taking limited-edition to the extreme, and once they're gone, it's game over."
Here's the extremely-limited-edition cup lowdown:
The 20-ounce coffee and Slurpee cups and 30-ounce Big Gulp cups are stainless steel, vacuum-insulated Tervis tumblers, each with a unique, vibrant design celebrating gaming. Retail price is $139 per cup* and includes 365 fill-ups for a year by scanning the 7Rewards barcode in the 7‑Eleven app.
What makes a limited-edition cup extreme? Only a total of 400 are available for sale – 140 each of the coffee and Big Gulp cups, and 120 Slurpee cups. This is the second time 7‑Eleven has offered ultra-premium cups, which proved to be ultra-popular in 2019. The earlier versions sold out in seconds.
When a 7‑Eleven customer buys any of the three featured cups, they will automatically receive 15 entries into the retailer's sweepstakes to win the coveted PlayStation®5 console**.
