It's time to roll up the rim!

Fifteen things you didn't know about Roll Up The Rim To Win:

  1. If you write to Tim Horton's, they'll send you a free cup.
  2. Instead of simply ripping off the tab, you may be required to send them the entire cup to claim your prize.
  3. You can redeem a winning donut tab for items that aren't donuts, like muffins and cookies.
  4. There is an online game called RRRoll Up Replay where you can collect points and badges. These points earn you ballots to enter you for a chance to win real prizes.
  5. You could roll up a winning tab on a small cup size in Canada but not in the United States.
  6. It is impossible to win if you order an espresso shot.
  7. The odds of winning a coffee or food prize in Canada and the United States are exactly the same (one in six), even though there are approximately 40 million more contest cups distributed in Canada.
  8. It is estimated that 131 million contest cups will be distributed in Ontario, the highest number of any region.
  9. If you don't have a valid driver's license, or if you're not at the legal age to drive, and you roll up a winning tab for a car, you are allowed to transfer the winning tab to someone else.
  10. Tim Hortons employees are not allowed to participate in the contest.
  11. If you buy at-home coffee products, such as single-serve brewing pods or bags of coffee, you still have a shot to win prizes.
  12. There's a well-known conspiracy theory that your odds of winning are better if you purchase a larger size cup. The company says size doesn't matter.
  13. According to a survey done by Tim Hortons, one-third of customers say that they finish their entire cup before rolling up the rim for good luck.
  14. From the same survey, it was discovered that the slow and steady thumb-rolling technique is the most popular among rollers.
  15. But if you're still struggling to roll up that rim, you could always buy a plastic keychain called a Rim Roller. This is designed specifically to help you roll up the rim.
