April Fools’ Day may be over for this year, but 7-Eleven Inc. is still in the mood for fun. The convenience-store retailer is inviting customers to participate in its annual Bring Your Own Cup Day on April 13. For one day only, 7-Eleven, Speedway and Stripes customers can bring in a vessel of their choosing and fill it with the chains’ Slurpee frozen beverage for $1.99.

While supplies last, the offer is limited to one “clean, watertight, leak-proof” container that fits upright within the 10-inch hole in the in-store display, indicating it can fit under the Slurpee drink dispenser, the company said. Customers can fill large classic Slurpee cups for $1.
