The global odds are only like 1 in 7 of winning anything! Then again, I guess that only works out to like 42 coffees (less with the extra large) over the past 2-3 weeks...I like my coffee run through a molecular re-arranger that outputs tea.
So far, I've won six free drinks.
I drink from timmies almost every day and I haven't won a thing for 2 years. The last thing I won was a free muffin or something. Rediculous. My dad and cousin on the other hand have both won $100 tim cards.After writing this, I won a doughnut.
I get approximately fifteen large teas a week from Tim's. On my last tea from Tim's yesterday, I won a doughnut; on my first tea from Tim's today, I won a drink.After writing this, I won a doughnut.
According to my Physics Forums profile, I live in Saint John, New Brunswick .where do you live?
In their defense, when I used to have to drag myself out of bed sometime between midnight and 3 AM to head to the farm for an experiment, and the Tim Horton's was only a block from my apartment, that large cup of coffee was pretty darned good! It was certainly better than the gas station a few blocks further, and it was faster to run into Tim Horton's than to wait for my own coffee to brew.The sad part, Moonbear, is if you ask a large segment of the Canadian population whether or not Tim Horton's makes good coffee, they'll resoundingly say, "Yes". I know. Sad but true.

Okay, does it count in this thread if three of the people I was a kids' hockey game with, who were drinking Timmy's coffee, each won a free coffee?
I live in a small Alberta city of about 60,000 people. We have three Tim Horton's. We have two Second Cups and five Starbucks. (Although I don't think two of the Starbucks count for this discussion because one is inside of a Safeway and one is inside of a Chapters.) Of all of these places, each and every morning, Tim Horton's has a line-up at the drive-through. Every single morning. Those places are like a license to print cash.I think it's a function of the ubiquity of Tim Hortons:
A Tim Horton's for every 10,000 Canadians (and driving around town sometimes, it feels like there's one every few blocks!)
They've established themselves as a fixture and Canadian institution. Even though they might not have the best coffee ever, it's definitely something that people are familiar with, oftentimes where we'd go for the hot chocolate / coffee / tea while growing up, and, because of all that, kinda comforting sometimes.
I likewise do that. However, you can still get a cup with purchase. Isn't that defeating one of the purposes of a refill, to reduce amount of waste? Sort of, but I typically just recycle the whole (non-coffee stained) stack at the end of the contest.Why would you get coffee in cups?
I have a big mug, they only charge for medium and I get like more than large. I only need it two times and it serves me for more than 10 hours (5 hours per mug of coffee)
