The purpose of this disclosure is to explain how we make money without charging you for our content.
Our mission is to help people at any stage of life make smart financial decisions through research, reporting, reviews, recommendations, and tools.
Earning your trust is essential to our success, and we believe transparency is critical to creating that trust. To that end, you should know that many or all of the companies featured here are partners who advertise with us.
Our content is free because our partners pay us a referral fee if you click on links or call any of the phone numbers on our site. If you choose to interact with the content on our site, we will likely receive compensation. If you don't, we will not be compensated. Ultimately the choice is yours.
Opinions are our own and our editors and staff writers are instructed to maintain editorial integrity, but compensation along with in-depth research will determine where, how, and in what order they appear on the page.

The big giveaway always occurs on July 11—that’s today—aka 7/11, or “7-Eleven Day.” The free drinks are available only during a specified window of time on Tuesday. (Naturally, it’s from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
No purchase is required to get your free Slurpee. Just head to a participating 7-Eleven store, fill up a small-size cup in your preferred Slurpee flavor, and head to the counter, where you will be charged $0 for the refreshing drink.
Among the Slurpee flavors available now are cotton candy, pina colada, pineapple mango, and watermelon lime.
This is a particularly great week for freebie-lovers. In addition to the free Slurpees at 7-Eleven, Chick-fil-A is giving away free chicken sandwiches and other entrees on Tuesday to all customers wearing cow-theme apparel or accessories.
And Sunday, July 16, is National Ice Cream Day, when there will be giveaways and other special deals on ice cream around the country. This year, McDonald’s has free vanilla cones for all customers on Sunday.
