Tim Hortons has announced ‘Tims It Forward’, to allow its customers to “surprise and delight family and friends” with a gift from the coffee chain.

Through the Tim Hortons mobile app and website, customers can send gifts to friends and family by using their existing Tims Reward points, to send specific items. All you need is a friend’s email to send them a gift. Eligible items are below:

  • 50 Points – Classic Donut & Cookie
  • 70 Points – Brewed Coffee, Tea, Premium Baked Good
  • 100 Points – Hot Chocolate, French Vanilla, Iced Coffee
  • 140 Points – Frozen or Espresso-based Beverage, 10 Pack Timbits

Tim Hortons says all new and active members of the Tim Rewards program will get a bonus 50 points, which should be available in its mobile app for redemption.

To redeem a gift, friends can use their existing Tim Rewards account. If they are not members, they can redeem it via a one-time QR code within their email. These Tim It Forward gifts must be activated within 6 months of being and and once activated, must be used within two weeks.

If you and your family are tied into the Tim Hortons app and love their food, this program might be for you. But it’s way easier sending a gift from Starbucks for example, as you can do so easily through iMessage and pay via Apple Pay.
