Tim Hortons Leaves Bitter Taste with Patrons

‘Please disregard the content of that email’: Tim Hortons mistakenly awards hundreds of grand prizes

For some people Tim Hortons coffee may be a little bitter this morning, after learning they haven't won a new boat. 

The prize was a $55,000 boat with a trailer, one of the grand prizes of the entire Roll Up The Rim competition.

Turns out it was a mistake.  Tim Hortons apparently told EVERYONE they won the boat.  So, thousands of people, if not more.  

They sent a follow-up email telling people to "disregard" the boat thing.  But now a ton of angry Canadians are threatening them with a class-action lawsuit.

Someone started a Facebook group called the "Tim Hortons 'You Won a Boat' Group".  Nearly 2,000 people had joined it as of last night, and they're all demanding their boats.

That probably won't happen, because the fine print says Tim Hortons has the right to "cancel, amend, or suspend" the contest if there's any sort of error made.

But they might get something, because this has happened before . . . to Tim Hortons just LAST YEAR.

In March 2023, a number of people were told they'd won $10,000 CASH.  Each customer ended up getting a $50 gift card for the trouble.
