/R E P E A T -- What Does Your Coffee Conscience Say? Majority Of Canadians Would Keep The Car If Treated To A Winning Cup Of Tim Hortons Coffee During RRRoll Up The Rim To Win/

Canada's favourite coffee contest is back with more than $54 million in RRRoll Up the Rim to Win prizes from Tim Hortons

OAKVILLE, ON, Feb. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - What's the proper etiquette when that coffee your friend bought you rolls up to be the all-new 2013 Toyota RAV4? Two-thirds (65%) of Canadians said they would keep the car if treated to the winning coffee by a friend, according to the RRRoll Up the Rim to Win Etiquette Poll. But not all is lost. The survey also revealed that among those winners who would keep the car, 73 per cent would treat their friend to a special gift in return for the car (and, hopefully, throw in an occasional ride).

During RRRoll Up the Rim to Win, guests at Tim Hortons have the opportunity to instantly win prizes with the purchase of any hot beverage. Prizes for the 2013 contest include 40 Grand Prizes of the all-new 2013 Toyota RAV4, 100 $5,000 MasterCard® prepaid cards, 1,000 Napoleon Gourmet Grills, 25,000 $100 Tim Cards and millions of coffee and food prizes.

"It's a Canadian tradition to treat friends to Tim Hortons coffee and with millions of prizes available, there is a chance that coffee rolls up to something more," says Dana Brochu, Category Brand Director, Coffee and Tea, Tim Hortons. "Our survey showed that etiquette varies depending on the nature of the prize, but the vast majority of Canadians indicated some reciprocation is in order."

According to the RRRoll Up the Rim to Win Etiquette Poll, nearly six-in-ten Canadians would share the $100 Tim Card and $5,000 MasterCard® prepaid cards  with their friend, if that friend treated them to the winning coffee.  Coffee and donuts were the prizes most likely to be gifted back to the purchaser (33% and 32%).

"Roll Up the Rim to Win is our way of thanking our loyal guests each year for making us Canada's favourite coffee *," says Brochu. "Nearly eight of every 10 cups * of brewed coffee poured in Canada are purchased at Tim Hortons, and that's something worth celebrating with our guests."
