IRVING, Texas With millions stuck at home for the holidays, 7-Eleven is sweetening the deal with free deliveries through the 7Now app and other high-tech perks.

Until Jan. 3, 2021, 7Now deliveries are free with the code FREE4U. Even families having socially distanced get-togethers at a local park can order beverages, food, ice, cups, plates and alcoholic beverages to customer 21 and older in participating markets through the 7Now app.

"We're here and we're ready, even in these most unusual times," said Jack Stout, senior vice president of merchandising and demand chain for 7-eleven. "7-Eleven stores are not only packed with items you need, but we've got some fun surprises as well. Every time a customer walks into our stores, our goal is to surprise and delight them with the numerous ways we answer their needs or help them have a little fun. And if there ever was a year that needed more fun, it's 2020."

Gift cards continue to top wish lists, and 7-Eleven stores' selection includes retailers, restaurants, general purpose, music and games. 7-Eleven stores' selection includes Vanilla Visa, Amazon, Netflix, Apple App Store, Google Play, iTunes, gaming cards such as Xbox and PlayStation—and of course, 7-Eleven gift cards.

Users can choose from Bluetooth headphones, wireless earbuds, charging pads, wired sports earbuds and more for stocking stuffers. For those "batteries not included" toys and gadgets, 7-Eleven batteries are available in a variety of sizes.

Additionally, 7-Eleven customers can earn 7Rewards points on almost every purchase they can redeem for free stuff. Customers can amplify the amount of points they earn by purchasing participating products with higher point values and through point streaks. To sign up and earn points, customers can download the 7-Eleven app from the App Store or Google Play, visit the 7Rewards online mobile website at 7Rewards.com or chat with the 7-Eleven Bot on Facebook Messenger.

For a contactless checkout experience, customers can pay using 7-Eleven Wallet found in the 7-Eleven app. Users load funds into a 7Rewards account with cash at the register, or in-app with a credit card, debit card, Apple Pay, Google Pay or a prepaid 7-Eleven gift card, and scan the 7Rewards barcode upon checkout.

7–Eleven operates, franchises or licenses more than 71,100 7-Eleven c-stores in 17 countries, including more than 9,300 in the United States. It is No. 1 onCSP's 2020 Top 202 ranking of U.S. c-store chains by size.
