Coffees of any size and sort (Iced, Dark Roast, Decaf) are part of the deal. One coffee is allotted to each app-user, and you do have to complete a transaction beforehand (or load $10 onto the app’s account) before being able to claim your gratis cup of Joe.
Tim Hortons locations across Canada and the U.S. will be participating in this Coffee Day celebration, which runs until October 8th.
Interestingly, National Coffee Day is held on the 29th of September in the United States. International Coffee Day, which Canada actually recognizes, is on October 1st.
Cleverly, Tim Hortons is covering its basis by starting its free-coffee-promo on the American celebration of caffeine and continuing into (and passed) Canada’s day to give thanks to the mighty coffee bean.
And as you’ve no doubt already surmised, Tim Hortons Coffee Day promotion is a thinly-veiled effort to get you to download the coffee chain’s app.
Not that the plan won’t work, because free coffee isn’t something one turns down, especially in the morning.
You might love to drink Tim Hortons "double doubles," but have you ever wanted to look like one?
Just in time for National Coffee Day, Tim Hortons is releasing a whole new line of swag called the Double Double Collection — an exclusive line of clothing that will only be available at Tim Hortons Canada.
Tim Hortons' Double Double Collection will have uniquely branded hoodies, T-shirts, sweatpants, and travel mugs and will be launched in both French (Deux Deux) and English (Double Double).
What makes the merchandise so unique is that the products "all feature Tim's signature double-double colour, inspired by the colour of the popular two-milk, two-sugar coffee," according to a statement shared with MTL Blog.
The collection will be available exclusively on thedripdrop.ca on September 29 at 10 a.m.
"Since Tim Hortons coffee is freshly brewed every 20 minutes, they will be delivering fresh options every 20 minutes until 6 p.m.," explained a company spokesperson.
The store, owned by Mathieu Côté, sold over 29,350 Smile Cookies, raising money for the Suroît Hospital Foundation in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield.
Nationally, the Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign raised over $12 million for charities across Canada.
This is a historic record for the campaign, far eclipsing the previous record of $10.5 million. One hundred percent of the profits will go towards various charities.
"Every year, Tim Hortons restaurant owners go above and beyond to raise money for our annual Smile Cookie campaign, and it is truly inspiring to be part of such an important initiative," Hope Bagozzi, marketing director at Tim Hortons, said in a statement.
A store in Dunnville, Ontario, sold the most Smile Cookies for the fourth year in a row, selling nearly 48,000.
What's better than a delicious latte to give you a little boost during the day? A free one, of course. That's why we're here to let you know that Tunnel Espresso will be officially opening at Time Out Market Montreal on Tuesday, August 10, and will be giving out free coffee all day to its customers.
If you work or live near downtown Montreal, or just love a good freebie, a trip to the Eaton Centre that day is most definitely worth your while.
Tunnel Espresso knows coffee, which is why its roasted coffee beans are sourced from Ethiopia, Colombia, and Brazil.
Along with coffee, the Time Out location will also serve "gobsmackingly good doughnuts and their one-of-a-kind innovation, the 'sconut'; a fried buttermilk biscuit that you won't find anywhere else."
A free coffee plus a tasty donut? Sounds like the perfect day.
