IRVING, Texas—Today is Cinco de Mayo, and after a year of shutdowns, quarantines and social distancing, many Americans are ready to celebrate. For some that might mean heading out to a community fiesta, while others may choose to party on their patio at home. Wherever the celebration, 7-Eleven stores are ready to help get the party started with deals, discounts and delivery.
The convenience retailer is celebrating the Mexican cultural holiday with a Slurpee drink toast and free mini tacos. Customers can purchase a small Slurpee drink for a $1, and the retailer will throw in four mini tacos for free. The exclusive 7Rewards® offer in the 7-Eleven app is redeemable in-store on May 5.
The two featured springtime Slurpee flavors are Peach Perfect and Mountain Dew Major Melon. Each mini taco is a bite-size, crispy corn tortilla shell filled with seasoned, shredded beef. Favorite Mexican brews such as Modelo and Corona 12 packs will be discounted $2 in-store through 7Rewards until May 10 when customers purchase eight mini tacos in participating stores.
“I can give you cinco reasons to make 7-Eleven part of this springtime celebration,” said Jawad Bisbis, 7-Eleven vice president of proprietary beverages, in a press release. “Dollar Slurpee drinks, free tacos, discounts on popular Mexican beers, and 7NOW delivery for those who'd prefer to party at home. And the fifth? The Slurpee frozen beverage was the original inspiration for the frozen margarita—just add a little tequila!”
