Tim Hortons® Announces Exciting New Features on Fast-Growing Loyalty Program

Tims Rewards has quickly grown to be one of Canada’s largest loyalty programs in less than one year
New access to a wide selection of items across the menu and exclusive offers
Exclusive 2x points promotion for registered members from February 26, 2020 to March 18, 2020

TORONTO/CNW/ – Tim Hortons is announcing an exciting expansion of its loyalty program, including access to a wider selection of the menu and launching new exclusive offers.

Tims Rewards launched less than a year ago, in March 2019, and has quickly become one of Canada’s largest and most used loyalty programs, with nearly 8 million active members. Guests have told us how much they love Tims Rewards, but to make it even better they would like to be able to access more items on the menu for rewards and would like to see more exclusive offers. 

On February 26, 2020, Tims Rewards will evolve to a points-based program providing greater choice. All members will earn 10 points per eligible transaction and unlock exciting new levels of rewards starting at just 50 points, such as the following:

  • 50 points: hash browns, classic donuts, specialty donuts, cookies
  • 70 points: brewed coffee, tea, Dream Donuts, bagels and baked goods
  • 100 points: hot chocolate, French vanilla, iced coffee, wedges
  • 140 points: Classic Iced Capp®, frozen beverages, espresso drinks, box of 10 Timbits®, yogurt, oatmeal
  • 180 points: breakfast sandwiches, soups
  • 220 points: BELT, farmers breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, chili

Unregistered members simply need to link their card number with their email on the Tim Hortons app or at timhortons.ca/signup to unlock expanded access to the menu. Through the app or online, members can select a rewards level to earn points towards or they can choose to bank points in their account and save them for up to a year. If a reward level isn’t selected, guests will receive a coffee, tea or baked good after earning 70 points.

The new Tims Rewards provides even more benefits for registered members. Members who have a digital card or link their physical card through the app or online will be able to unlock exclusive benefits, starting with a special promotion to earn 2x the points from February 26 to March 18, 2020 and can receive a reward on their birthday.

  • Download the app and link your card: Tims Rewards is simple and easy to use. Download the Tim Hortons app from the App Store or Google Play or visit timhortons.ca.
