Any suggestions on what container I should take with me? :D

•

Why would they make this on a Wednesday?

lowest selling day = less damage to the accounts of 7-eleven

F*&\$ yeh, my favourite day of the year!!

Challenge Accepted

Off to find something exactly 230mm x 260mm. Also, is there a limit on height? Perhaps i should go to bunnings and buy a 230mm pipe and an end cap. A metres worth should be fine

• +1 vote

a metre would exceed the 260mm limit then, wouldnt it ?

but it only gives two dimensions of a 3 dimensional object

•

true that, seeing as i suggested a plastic bag; but logically, you'd get caught out by one of the measurements required. i think. this is confusing

•

ok think cylinders.. ie. you have a circumference or diameter and a height. theres a cut out carboard in the store which your container has to fit through. although lots of people got away with their container not fitting through like the pic Ace provided above.

Better hope Melbourne warms up by then, I don't want to go anywhere near a Slurpee at the moment!

24 degrees today!

…showers tomorrow. Onya melbourne :)

•

within the following size dimensions: 230mm (width) x 260mm (height).

what about the depth of the cup, is that unlimited ???

Bringing my never ending pit.

• +1 vote

how will you eat the slurpee then?

•

probably something like 23 x 26cm square.
Like 23x26cm for each face of the third dimension :)
With a maximum of four horizontal faces.

Sigh

•

I think you'll find it's 230(w)x230(d)x260(h)
They are referring to a cup hence cylinder so only give one width/depth figure, probably in the hope that people don't realise a box will have a larger volume.

If it was during summer, it would be worth it. But with Melbourne's fkn freezing weather, thanks but no thanks.

This reminds me of the Chinese pizza hut salad bars that were amazing!

•

They are fabulous indeed.

•

My Maths must be out… I got 13.754lt from a 230x230x260mm container!
That's a LOT of Slurpee!! *8v/

•

Alternatively… given the definition of a 'cup', it would seem they are aiming for a cylindrical shape, which still allows for 10.802lt!
Would love to know how many ppl can get away with ignoring the 'cup' reference and score the full 13+litres!

• All cups must be clean, watertight, safe to consume from and must fit within the following size dimensions: 230mm (width) x 260mm (height).

Saw a few people last year filling up 20L esky's. A couple of them had 50L eskys but they were only half full at most. I did see two guys with a 50L esky between them that was 4/5ths full though.

I visited about 8-9 different 7/11's throughout the day last year and most stores were fairly lenient with the restrictions. Some were just assholes though, not even allowing larger 'cups' that fit within the restrictions.

Add a bottle of vodka and you've got alcohol poisoning waiting to happen :)

Me thinks that's why it states: "Must be free of foreign matter" :)

erm thats why you add it AFTER you fill it…

•

I love you marketing team 7-11, we all know slurpie's are crap once all melted. Get a group of 5 people with a 4 foot pipe & go nuts!

•

Took 6 litre esky last year. Good times.

Also last time they just had a cardboard cut out that was in the shape of a circle…oval? That the cup had to fit through the cut out to be considered

•

pvc drainpipe?

•

pvc is carcinogenic. use polyethylene instead.

I'm really trying to figure out what container to take to get the most out of this…

Unless your trying to feed multiple people don't bother.

Just bring something cool/easy and enjoy it, I really doubt your actually going to want those extra litres.

Slurpees are cool but most people get sick of them after a few litres.

Haha I would be impressed if most people only got sick of them "after a few litres"!

Might want to have look at the post from last years. Some real creativity and exploitation there haha.

Wearing mr men boxers in public, or downblousing asian chicks?

Either way, some sort of charge seems appropriate.

•

Still grinning over being snapped last year by a fellow OzBargainer.

•

The Slurpee Facebook Page is saying containers must be no more than 23cm wide and no more than 26cm high.

Gonna make em wish they never offered this. Screw the cup/esky I'm goin Barney style & put my mouth right under the tap :)

they said it has to be clean…

•

is this an all day thing?

Rocked up, somewhat surprised it wasn't out of stock. All flavors available. Pushed the cup (easily) through the hole, filled it up, got to the front desk. Apparently my cup was "illegal" and the cup must fit through the hole up-ways. Anyway after a couple of minutes of discussing i said "well, i'm sorry, i misunderstood the rules, do you have a sink?". Ended up giving it to me for the \$2.90

just going to bring in a 3ltr bottle of what used to hold golden circle pineapple juice ;) I think 3ltrs is Plenty!!

• +1 vote

as someone with a 5L bottle, i assure you 3Litres will be plenty. It melts before you get near the bottom anyway

•

I ended up drinking all of my 3ltr one :) from 11am - 2pm is how long it took me :P

Took in the "100 chupa chups" container, and packed that in a cooler bag with ice bricks :D

•

just seen two young chicks Rock up with a bucket . filled it up and off they went with a straw

•

When to a 7-11 for an unrelated purchase, it seems the popular cup of choice is the KFC bucket.

I love this day just for the photos

I don't get it:

Tellfresh® Super storer™, 8.5 L (usable capacity 8.6 L)

It has more usable space than it contains?

•

i think because it has a lid which expands the capacity of it.

If you filled it with liquid, you'd get 8.5Litres. If you filled it with something more solid you'd be able to fit 8.6L

•

Understood, assuming though that there aren't many materials that could fill it up to the capacity including the lid without spilling over the side before placing the lid on.

•

yeah, it's a bit silly. I suppose you could stack rice above the level of the container, then just push it down hard with the lid quickly
