7-Eleven is kicking off Slurpee season this Saturday with BYO Cup Day.

That means you can bring your beakers, goblets, jars or anything else that could be even remotely considered a cup to 7-Eleven and fill it with Slurpee deliciousness.

Between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, it will cost you $1.49 to fill up a “Slurpee” cup of your choice, regardless of size. However, the cup must fit upright through an in-store display with a 10-inch diameter hole. So, no trash cans and inflatable swimming pools are allowed (sorry guys).

This is the first time BYO Cup Day has been held in the United States, although 7-Eleven stores in Australia, Canada, the Philippines and Malaysia have held BYO Cup Days in the past.

Slurpee drinks purchased during BYO Cup Day will count as a punch on 7Rewards, 7-Eleven’s customer loyalty platform.

If a customer already has six digital punches on their rewards card, they can redeem their free 7th drink during BYO Cup Day.
