    I'm 0 for 7 [face_plain]

    This is nothing new. I am such a loser when it comes to this thing! I can't even win a friggin donut!!!! What's wrong with this picture??

    My roommate works there, so you would think I would have an inside track. The prizes should be drawn to me, right? Well, you'd be WRONG!

    Yeah, so anyways, how does everyone else feel about this game?

    Until Tim's starts accepting debit cards, I will likely never have occasion to try the roll up program.

    LOL...I knew that would come back to haunt me some day, Woofer ;)

    Technically, I'm not allowed to claim prizes, because I "reside in the same domicile" as a Tim Horton's employee

    me = sucks to be

    I am a student, and don't drink coffee, as a result, I have no incentive to spend money at Tim's... Therefore, I have never won anything, but at least I'm 0 for 0. (Perfect 100% average!!! :D ) ;)

    I'm 0 for 0

    I have not had a coffee since they started this promotion.

    The trick is to ask them if they will double cup your coffee if the cup is really hot, doubling your chances ;)

    Nice try Bay, but they give you a normal cup for the double cup. Trust me, I get a tea, and they always double cup it.

    If you are lucky deb you can situate your cup so a clumsy employee knocks it over...then they will give you a new one. When they are not looking take the fallen cup...2 for 1. :D

    ah, but see, the only way that you are aloud to get a second roll up cup is if the store is out of the brown cups.... we have to double cup with a brown cup... depending on the store, the managers, and the owners, you could actually loose your job for continuing to double cup with a roll up cup.. It sucks I know, but I don't make the rules..

    and I have won like 10 times... although I can't claim the prizes.. lol.. sucks to be me

    I'm 0 for 2, my hubby is 0 for 3.

    Not exactly hard-core players in our house, but since we buy the coffee anyway... :)
