Tim Hortons is a Canadian icon, and I don’t know many people who are willing to go without their Timmies coffee when they need a fix. That is why it is great news that Canadians can now use their Visa credit and prepaid cards at Tim Hortons! This brings together Canada’s largest payment brand with the most popular and largest quick service restaurant chain in the country, and I know that this will make it easier for me to get my favourite Tim Hortons treat…a steeped tea!
In celebration of this exciting announcement, Visa is offering a chance to win a dream cottage getaway. From June 28 to August 15, 2012, Visa cardholders will be automatically entered into a draw for a summer cottage experience, simply by using their Visa to pay for purchases at Tim Hortons.
I was given a prepaid Visa from VISA.ca to use at Tim Hortons, and I decided to save it for Canada Day. We made plans to head over to Stratford for their annual fireworks, and having some snacks while we wait for the fireworks is important, so we stopped at Tim Hortons and bought a box of Timbits and some ice caps to enjoy while we waited. I like ice caps a little too much and I finished mine before we event made it to Stratford, but I made the kids have a little more restraint than me, and we waited to open the timbits until we were at the park.
One of my lucky readers will get to enjoy some Tim Horton’s products soon too, because I am giving away a $50 prepaid VISA card to one of my Canadian readers!
