IRVING, Texas —The Million Points Giveaway Sweepstakes is giving consumers more reasons to sign up for the 7-Eleven Inc. 7Rewards loyalty program.
Seven winners will get “rewards rich” by winning 1 million 7Rewards points each, redeemable to buy food and drinks at participating locations, the convenience store retailer announced. Customers can unofficially earn “Pointillionaire” status, giving them an abundance of reward points and 7-Eleven products at their disposal.
The sweepstakes runs through April 28 and winners will be drawn weekly.
The Million Points Giveaway coincides with the recent 7Rewards loyalty platform enhancement that adds a points-based loyalty program. Now, consumers can easily earn points on almost everything they buy. The in-app menu is designed to provide the customer with what they want as it is curated with their favorites, according to 7-Eleven.
"Our strategy to make every customer's interaction with 7-Eleven valuable and delightful just got bigger and better. The enhanced 7Rewards app gives customers more ways to earn and redeem points in order to get free stuff," said 7-Eleven Chief Digital Officer and Chief Information Officer Gurmeet Singh.
The enhancements to 7Rewards are key aspects of a companywide initiative to create greater customer engagement by personalizing the customer experience, both in-store and through digital technologies. 7‑Eleven updated the app specifically to make their customers' experiences in and out of the store even more enjoyable, the company stated.
One million points could earn 7Rewards members approximately:
- 1,250 medium Slurpee drinks;
- 833 Big Bite hot dogs; or
- 500 Melt sandwiches.
Million Points winners can redeem their points instantly on any eligible product. Items listed in the app include: hot and cold beverages and sandwiches; fresh and packaged bakery; snacks; candy and more. Customers must be registered to redeem their rewards.
To enter the sweepstakes, customers scan their personal barcode in the 7-Eleven mobile app when checking out. The purchase of a featured product earns an extra entry. 7Rewards members can scan the app to enter up to six times a day, or 42 times per week. The entry period starts over each week.
In addition to scanning the app, customers can use their registered loyalty card or the barcode obtained by messaging the 7-Eleven Chat Bot on Facebook Messenger.
