Up the Rim to Win prizes from Tim Hortons
TORONTO, Feb. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - What's the proper etiquette when that coffee
your friend bought you rolls up to be the all-new 2013 Toyota RAV4? Two-thirds
(65%) of Canadians said they would keep the car if treated to the winning
coffee by a friend, according to the RRRoll Up the Rim to Win Etiquette Poll.
But not all is lost. The survey also revealed that among those winners who
would keep the car, 73 per cent would treat their friend to a special gift in
return for the car (and, hopefully, throw in an occasional ride).
During RRRoll Up the Rim to Win, guests at Tim Hortons have the opportunity to
instantly win prizes with the purchase of any hot beverage. Prizes for the
2013 contest include 40 Grand Prizes of the all-new 2013 Toyota RAV4, 100
$5,000 MasterCard® prepaid cards, 1,000 Napoleon Gourmet Grills, 25,000 $100
Tim Cards and millions of coffee and food prizes.
"It's a Canadian tradition to treat friends to Tim Hortons coffee and with
millions of prizes available, there is a chance that coffee rolls up to
something more," says Dana Brochu, Category Brand Director, Coffee and Tea,
Tim Hortons. "Our survey showed that etiquette varies depending on the nature
of the prize, but the vast majority of Canadians indicated some reciprocation
is in order."
According to the RRRoll Up the Rim to Win Etiquette Poll, nearly six-in-ten
Canadians would share the $100Tim Card and $5,000 MasterCard® prepaid cards
with their friend, if that friend treated them to the winning coffee. Coffee
and donuts were the prizes most likely to be gifted back to the purchaser (33%
"Roll Up the Rim to Win is our way of thanking our loyal guests each year for
making us Canada's favourite coffee(*)," says Brochu. "Nearly eight of every
