To most moms, every day is coffee day—because, y’know, we need it to live.
But today is officially National Coffee Day! What’s the difference, we hear you cry? Well, instead of handing over your hard earned cash in exchange for mommy fuel, our favourite Canadian institution is caffeinating us without charge.
Starting Friday, September 29, Canadian’s can wake up to a FREE Original Blend, Dark Roast, Decaf or Iced Coffee of—wait for it—ANY SIZE once they download and order with the Tim Horton’s app. The app is available for download on iOS and Android and can be downloaded here.
Go quick though; restaurants will be giving away up to a million free cups of coffee. Which sounds like a lot. Until you remember that there are 36 million people in Canada . . . and many millions of sleep-deprived parents.
The offer runs until October 8 in participating Tim Horton’s—so if you’ve already had waaaay too much coffee for one morning, there are plenty more chances to claim your free cup of joe.
And even when the free coffees are but a distant memory, the app still promises to make your morning rocket fuel collection easier, faster and more personal. The Mobile Order & Pay feature allows you to order ahead before you get to a Tim Horton’s. Plus, much of the standard menu is available on the app—think TimBits and breakfast sandwiches—so you can make your selection and skip the line.
Don’t get greedy now—ONE coffee is allotted per app-user, and you will have to complete a transaction beforehand or load $10 of credit onto the account. BUT if you’re already a Tim Horton’s addict, this is a small price to pay for your gratis cup of coffee.
