Tim Hortons is celebrating National Coffee Day by kicking off a giveaway, offering up to 1 million free coffees of any size, when customers download and place a mobile order from their iOS or Android app.
Starting today, Friday, September 29 to October 8, a free Original Blend, Dark Roast, Decaf or Iced Coffee of any size will be free, available when users place a mobile order, at participating locations.
“Our goal with digital is to take everything our Guests love about Tim Hortons and extend it from the Restaurant to their phones,” said Steve Greenwood, President of Digital, Tim Hortons, in an emailed statement to iPhone in Canada. “We are humbled by the initial reaction from users and delighted to share this new offer with our Guests to celebrate National Coffee Day.”

Tim Hortons launched their new mobile order and pay iOS app back in July. It allows customers to place any order and requires customers to preload their balance in minimum $10 increments, with support for Apple Pay in-app payments.
