They go from a somewhat cool truck to a shitty, fugly car, an hybrid no less? What a letdown!

I guess that just means I won't have to waste my money and my tastebuds on Timmies' coffee. :)

What about the time lag on the mail?  They might not get the winners until after the contest expiry.  On another note - eventually, I'd guess every regular drinker (of Timmie Ho's) should eventually get at least a fat pill and a coffee... so...

... given the high percentage of service personnel who consume Timmie Ho's, and the large number of service personnel on this site - I would expect, given the law of large numbers and chaos theory their due - that someone who is a member here should win one of the larger prizes.  I wait with abated breath...

They do accept Tim Horton's Gift Certificates though. I sent hubby and his section over some for Christmas...each got $5...two free coffee's...they did appreciate that!!  Also, my hometown (Ingersoll, ON), banded together to raise enough Timmie's GC for each guy to get $10. Hubby got that when he finally came back in camp.

Here where I reside (just a short drive out of Winnipeg), we have our own "sure fire signs of spring", apart from Tim Horton's coffee. As an aside to this, my father-in-law claims that Starbucks coffee "is stronger than beer" (not certain how he'd know this since he doesn't drink alcohol! My family doctor says the Starbucks Grande has 550 mgs of caffeine verses 100 mgs in filtered coffee :-). At any rate, this convention exists between several of the neighbours on our block and in the surrounding area. Everyone hereabouts knows that the signs of spring include the following items: the robins return to our midst, the trees begin to bud, the snow recedes and ***** [not her real name :)] is outside yelling at her husband in the backyard. Perhaps it isn't terribly fair since I doubt she is able to help it but it generates a fair number of chuckles nevertheless. Anyway, let's enjoy our Canadian springs wherever we may be. I have no work today since the snowfall has shut down schools and the buses outside the city.

OK so we're all winning donuts and coffee but does anyone actually know anyone who has ever won one of the big prizes?

My next door neighbour won the Mazda MPV in 97. Last year in Sup Coy Gagetown we had two BBQ winners!! One of the civ employees at CE in Gagetown last year won a vehicle as well.

But, of course in in Belleville, I got to watch my other neighbours son (in-debt up to his ears due to his University) scratch his "Cash For Life" card (and WIN!!!) recd at his surprise 19th birthday party during a weekend at home!! Good kid too. Quite the birthday party that turned out to be I tell you!!

I'd lose this one: hands down.  I lost mine in the training area YEARS ago, and have decided unilaterally to not submit any paperwork since the process involved the sacrifice of virgins, three goats and one first-born male.  Also, The Librarian is a Sup Tech, and probably has access to more Gerbers than I have fingers, so.....

I was watching the story CTV done on the device.I thought the idea was good for a novelty item,however have these people been properly shown how to roll up the rim?

*Face the prize area towards your body,gripping with thumbs on the arrows and index fingers directly on the opposite side of the cup.

*grip index and thumbs together,collapsing the cup together.

*with a firm grip roll upwards,displaying the prize.

All I seen was people biting it and trying to roll it up without collapsing the cup.Looked like a commercial selling special knifes.And showing how difficult cutting apples are without the special knife.(Woman frustrated shaking head and squashing the apple,next shot cutting finger from slipping knife)

Nice for a stocking stuffer,however I wouldn't buy one.

My clerk, although a valiant effort was made this past week to convert me to the other side, remembered today that her performance review is coming up soon and without my Tim's it could get ugly (for her).  However, any transgressions of the past week on her part for pushing the funky tea instead of my double double are now forgiven that we have a couple of freebies.  She'd get promoted if I won the car...

Well, since the start of the contest - I'd say my AVERAGE purchase is around 1x XL and 1x L per day.

I have won two coffees.  That's it.

Usually, I win a prize about every 3 - 4 coffees.  I eat 50% of the fat pills and throw the rest away.  The coffees I drink.

Terrible odds this year... esp since a car was already given away in Prince Albert - the odds of a decent prize appearing in Saskatoon have diminished considerably.  Poop.

I have not had a Canadian spring since 1994!

Speaking of season changes, today is the first day of fall down here, ya 01 Mar. In reality we have two seasons in the tropics, warm and hot (mixed in with wet and dry of course), and TF the hot season is over, although it will still push into the mid-high 30s at times over the next moth or two.

Its just after 0600, already 22C, but windy and it wants to rain, the sun has just cracked over the Coral Sea.

I bought a friend a coffee today and his cup won.  He tried to press it on me, but I insisted that he'd earned it through a successful rim-rolling technique.  One of these days I'll win something.  I think at this rate I'll have paid for the SUV before I win it.

I always get XL, I "played again" on my first one, but got a free coffee with my second.  With that free coffee, I won another....It's no car but still it's free :)
So overall, i'm 2 out of 3 on XL's

Finally a winner. I had to change the size in the coffee order, but it worked. Now standing at 2/28 this year. It's still a poor performance compared to past years.

I read this on another BLOG. If this is true, it's a warning for others:

(http://www.leevalley.com/images/item/Gift/rimroller3.jpg)

Quote
I present my tab, which thanks to my rim roller says only "n/Gagne Café/Coff" ...

Cashier: Sorry sir, we cannot accept that because all the words are not there.
Me: Has never been a problem before
Cashier: Sorry sir, those are the rules
Me: Can I see a supervisor?
Supervisor: Sorry sir, because some people will rip a tab in two and try to claim two prizes, unless all the words are there we cannot accept your tab.
Me: Really? Someone would present you a tab that says "Wi" or "ee" and you would honor that?
Supervisor: Not anymore
Me: But I clearly have portions of all the words.
Supervisor: Sorry sir (and walks away)
Me: (to cashier) Is there a manager on duty?
Cashier (lowers voice): Okay, I'll give it to you, but just this once.

If it is official policy to present the entire French/English portion of the rim, one would expect it to be mentioned in the rules.

There isn't really an official policy on accepting these... what happened in this quote was probably just a Timmies employee afraid of breaking a rule and being reprimended.

Way back when toonies were introduced (not that you're old enough to remember that) ... there actually were asshats attempting to break them and claim 4 bucks for the 2 bits.  ::)

I've no doubt that Timmies customers have tried to claim 2 prizes by ripping a "winner" in two. Albeit due to the complete rip-off that it seems to be getting year after year - prizes certainly seem to be fewer and further in between than they once were.

I've been a loyal Timmies customer for years and once used to go out of my way to get a Timmies during roll-up-the-rim ... There'll be no more of that occuring given the last couple of years.

People do go through a lot of trouble to try to cheat their way into gaining essentially nothing. Every here and again at work I can hear the girls out front telling customers (who will often become quite irate) that their 'roll up' tab isn't from Tim Horton's.. they try to use Robins Donuts, or Dunkin's to get a free coffee.
 That's when I laugh, pour myself a free coffee and go make more donuts while drinking the free coffee.

I was old enough then to remember sitting on the back porch with a hammer and a toonie trying to seperate the pieces so I would have enough for two bags of chips at the Irving.

I'm not sure what's going on but I'm golden this year.  Last Tuesday I went 3 for 3 with my coffee purchases (granted it was all free donut/coffe wins).  On Thursday i won another free coffee and yesterday I won again. 
I think since the promotion started i have bought maybe 10 or 12 cups of coffee from TH and of that 6 have been winners.

If you want one of those cars, you'd better hurry. We got our last shipment of Roll Up cups today when the truck came. It's over when the stores run out of what they have in supply.  :o
 
Me? I just got a new car about a month ago, so I don't need the Toyota, my old computer died, so I just got a new one, therefore no need for the laptop, and when I'm at work I get all the free coffee in the world..... I win without playing.

I just stated yesterday that I was giving up Tim Hortons this year for Lent.  (For you heathens non-Catholics out there, it's the period between Mardi Gras and Easter.  During this time, Christians will "give up" something dear to their hearts.  You get to break this fast on Sundays, which are days to feast, so).

I guess my fasting from TH's will actually be a bit of a struggle!

But, today, I bought 1, and went 1 for 1!  I lost on my freebie.  So, now 1 for 2.

Have fun all!

Thieves stealing Roll Up the Rim cups
By Doug Hempstead, QMI Agency
 Article Link (http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Crime/2012/02/25/19425161.html)         

OTTAWA — There's stealing to support your addiction, and then there's this -- sneaking off with ill-gotten Roll Up the Rim cups from Tim Hortons.

It's really happening.

Some Tim Hortons locations are found inside Esso gas bars -- little self-serve counters where brown beverage lovers pour their own coffee, add their own fixins.

Under the promise of anonymity -- because Esso staff aren't allowed to speak to reporters -- a manager at a west-end Ottawa location explained why the cups weren't in their usual location but rather safely stashed behind the main cash counter.

Not only are people "double and triple-cupping" their drinks, but in some cases, they're walking out with entire sleeves of cups.

"They distract the cashier and then walk out with them," she said on Friday. "It's one of the most popular games in Canada, I think."
   

She described patrons' passionate attraction to the twice-a-year contest like "that character from Lord of the Rings who says My Precious, My Precious."

She's referring to Gollum.

The manager said someone recently tried to pry open the door to their storeroom and figures boxes of virgin Roll Up The Rim cups were the likely target.

She said she's not the first manager to take the approach of hiding the cups, in fact she got the idea from one of her colleagues.

It's also not the first, or most depressing, example of rim theft.

In April 2010, someone broke into a Chatham, Ont., home through a screen door and made off with three Roll Up The Rim winning cups -- in broad daylight, around 10 a.m.

Cops were quoted in the local paper saying, "This criminal must have needed a coffee in a really bad way to risk going to jail."

Indeed.

The manager here points out her store has cameras in place as theft protection and said the cups themselves are expensive -- considerably more than their liquidy innards.

The odds of winning one of the 47 million prizes hiding under a rim is one in six, according to Tim Hortons.

No, it doesn't.  People misinterpret what "1 in 6" means.  Every time you buy a coffee, that's a 1 in 6 chance.  You've purchased 4, and lost on each one.  Chances are you will lose out on the next two as well, because the odds haven't changed to 1 in 2 chances to win.

No, it doesn't.  People misinterpret what "1 in 6" means.  Every time you buy a coffee, that's a 1 in 6 chance.  You've purchased 4, and lost on each one.  Chances are you will lose out on the next two as well, because the odds haven't changed to 1 in 2 chances to win.
Great! Now my dreams of a free coffee are shattered, SHATTERED! I tell you......

Coffee 20 is going downrange now; I'm still sitting at just one measley coffee. Darrell is at 4 - 7 (better than 1 in 2 for him right now).  ::)

0 for 0 so far - since the baristas at Starbucks are better looking, they get my business.

Tall and Small cafe for me...though they hire emo girls to work there and that's not my thing. Though I am sure Hammer Sandwich will be moving here when he reads this.

I have a hate on for Tim's of late. I now firmly believe that if you are awarded a franchise then you should either, a) erect traffic lights complete with appropriate turning lanes, b) build at the back of a five acre lot to accommodate lineups for drive through, c) be located five miles from town centres (I'm willing to bend for non-standalone locations, like in office buildings) I loathe Tim's traffic.

If you would just go as the Batman here, you'd avoid all that Tims Traffic ;D

0 for 2.  As I walked up to the counter, a guy was celebrating because he just won $100.  (It was an XL cup and I bought a small, so I wouldn't have got that cup in any event.)

Busy weekend and some tme on the road so no we're 1-9, free doughnut! Yay!!

I actually find it surprising that with the CF's penchant for Tim's and the amount of cups purchased by members that no one on the site has had a major win yet. (unless I've missed something...)

On Saturday, I drove from Montreal to Gagetown and then back again (19 hour trip, LOTS of Timmies). Two extra people in the truck on the way back ... and still no winning cups en route. Have also been playing online every day. Nada there either. Well over 40 coffees now and have won only a single damn coffee. Not impressed.  >:(

At least they were winners, with the exception of the mad woman.  I may still join her.  Still a shut out.  I may as well change my name to Maple Leafs.  I'd wager they'll see a winning cup before I do.   :rage:

Oui Oui.

While you were swimming your *** off, he was coffee-breaking at Timmies and rolling up the car.  >:D

To revive a dead thread (oops). I ended the season 16 wins out of 28 total Large or XLarge Double-Double's.

Today after a long day of work, I had purchased another (well after the end of the contest), and found myself staring into an Excel Spreadsheet... rolling up the rim on a normal ol' Timmies cup.

The Boss was giving me weird looks but I couldn't figure out why until I took the cup out of my teeth. Got myself a get-out-of-work-early card though!*





*actually, so did everyone else...

People have had three weeks to play RUTRTW.
Aside from blank rims on some game cups, how have your odds been this year?

I haven't bought any this year, so I'm at zero for zero.  :whistle:

At my work, we've got an easel set up.  After every purchase, you look up the size of your coffee (S/M/L/XL) and add a line to show if it's a winner or a loser.

So far, we can conclude: We drink lots of large coffees.
