Getting free gift cards!

This morning I took a rare visit to Tim Hortons downtown for a half dozen bagels and a pair of coffees. When I paid, the lady behind the counter gave me a “Tim Card”. In the hustle of the busy store, I didn’t have time to ask what it was about, and I actually just assumed that a previous customer had left their expired card on the counter and she thought that it was mine.

When I got home, I took a closer look and the front of the card says, “Thank you for being our customer! Compliments of your local Tim Hortons”. The back indicates that it is loaded with two bucks.

I have no idea if this is a promotion related to the roll up the rim contest, or simply a nice way to surprise random customers. It’s not like I am a regular there like this guy.

At any rate, thanks Tim!  I will reinvest this $2 in another roll up the rim cup, from which I expect to win a car, which I will sell for profit.
