Already missing your free Slurpee from 7-Eleven’s birthday celebration July 11? The party isn’t over yet.

For the last 12 years, 7-Eleven has given away millions of free Slurpees on July 11, said ABC News.

But this year, the convenience store has extended its freebies from July 15 to 24 to celebrate 7-Eleven Week with a technological twist. To be eligible for the giveaways, customers must download the 7-Eleven smartphone app, which also is free. The app allows users to locate the nearest 7-Eleven store, find new products and download coupons.

Though the extended promotion was supposed to begin over the weekend, a glitch in the app Saturday, July 12, moved the week’s celebration to July 15, with an extended three days, according to USA Today.

If you missed Slurpee Day, there are still two more chances for a drink on the house, as well as a pile of other treats. Here’s what you get each day:

Tuesday, July 15: Hostess Twinkies

Wednesday, July 16: Twix or Snickers ice cream bar

Thursday, July 17: Quaker chewy yogurt snack bar

Friday, July 18: Pillsbury cookies

Saturday, July 19: small Slurpee drink

Sunday, July 20: Big Gulp drink

Monday, July 21: M&Ms candy

Tuesday, July 22: Grandma’s cookies

Wednesday, July 23: Big Gulp drink

Thursday, July 24: small Slurpee drink

Download the app onto your phone, then find the nearest 7-Eleven on the map below and claim your free Twinkie.
