For the first time ever, Tim Hortons will be rewarding digital and sustainable ways to play through the Tim Hortons app*
Iconic Roll Up the Rim To Win® contest enters its 35th year on March 11

After 35 years of Rolling Up the Rim, Tim Hortons has modernized its iconic contest to allow for a combination of paper, digital and sustainable play.

Contest Dates
Roll Up The Rim To Win® starts on March 11 and runs for four weeks – until April 7.

Roll Up the Rim Cups
Physical Roll Up the Rim cups will be available in participating restaurants across Canada – for the first two weeks of the contest**. Throughout the four week contest, guests can play digitally on the Tim Hortons app or online at

Playing Digitally
Tim Hortons is rewarding digital and sustainable ways to play.

Tims Rewards
When ordering a hot beverage, registered Tims Rewards members who scan their card or app will receive a digital roll in the Tim Hortons app or online. For the first two weeks* of the contest, guests will get two rolls when ordering a hot beverage when they scan their Tims Rewards card – one on the cup and one on the app. For the last two weeks of the contest, Roll Up the Rim can only be played on the app or online.

If guests scan a non-registered Tims Rewards card, the rolls will accumulate on their card, and can be accessed when the card is registered. Unregistered Tims Rewards members have until April 21 to register their card to be able to reveal digital rolls.

Reusable Cups
Guests who purchase a hot beverage in a reusable cup or mug will receive three digital rolls for all four weeks of the contest.

Free Reusable Cup Giveaway on March 10
To kick off the month-long contest, starting on March 10 Tim Hortons will give out 1.8 million reusable hot beverage cups** for free. This is being done as part of Tim Hortons 10-year commitment to change consumer perceptions and habits towards using reusable cups.
