Signs, Signs - Roll Up The Rim

Andy | Wednesday, March 21, 2012 | Best Blogger Tips

I don't know if this is a phenomenon that occurs in Canada only. Go to Tim Hortons Coffee Shop (they are everywhere) and purchase a coffee. It's served in a paper cup with an arrow that points to the rim. Roll up the rim and that reveals a message to what you have won. It could range from play again, to a free coffee, or a Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE. This promotion only last for a few weeks but it is an annual event.

    Can you show us a rolled out rim with a message. I am very curious how something looks.

  2. Ha, there's a task for you. Force yourself to have a Timmy's coffee and photograph the rim. ;) I always win better luck next time.

    1. There's a trick to rolling the rim up. Grasp the empty cup by the sides and push the rim up with your thumbs.

  9. I have won six coffees so far. Nothing more exciting than that has ever happened in all the years of rolling up the rim!

  10. I'm glad just to see a photo of a Tim Horton's! I have a lot of Canadian friends here in AZ, and they all talk about Tim Horton's coffee!

  11. This promo must have started after I left Canada. What do they charge for a cuppa java these days?

  12. I'm not a good "Canadian", I never go to Tim Horton's and I have never played the game with the roll up cup. :)

  13. We saw Tim Hortons when we went up east a couple of years ago and I am very sorry we didn't stop in to one. I love coffee, guess we just didn't know at the time what Tim Horton's was. Next trip ;>)...let us know what you won!

  14. A rolled cup rim is a novel way of revealing a prize! I visited a Tim Horton's in Canada years ago and loved the food and coffee there!
