Free Coffee from Country Style Using “Please Play Again” Tim Hortons Roll Up The Rims + Day 3


Thanks Good Al, Freebiechick and Skippy for info about this freebie. This free offer from Country Style has now been CONFIRMED.

Don’t throw away your “Please Play Again” cups from Tim Hortons! You can use redeem them for a free medium coffee from Country style! Anyone who brings their losing tab into a Country Style store from March 3 to 9 will get a free medium cup of coffee

Here’s more info about this from mediaincanada:

Currently in the midst of rebranding its 350+ Ontario locations, Country Style has come up with a cheeky way of getting coffee drinkers to come on in to see what’s new.

In a first-ever move that might well be dubbed “promo hijack,” or possibly “consolation marketing,” the chain is extending a generous offer to every coffee drinker who is disappointed by rolling up the rim elsewhere, only to read the dreaded message: “Sorry Try Again.” Anyone who brings their losing tab into a Country Style store from March 3 to 9 will get a free medium cup of coffee.

“We know from feedback from competitors’ customers that they get frustrated with [not winning] the cups promotions,” says Country president Rick Martens. “Our tagline is ‘It’s going to be a good day,’ and we want to make sure our customers and consumers across Ontario have just that.”

To publicize its piggybacking ploy, the chain is doing a PR and media relations campaign as well as viral marketing, including a Facebook posting, and email initiatives encouraging people to tell family and friends about the free coffee offer. As well, print ads will appear in the Toronto Sun, and there will be spots on radio morning shows at Q107 and Mix 99.9.

The initiative, including advertising and execution, is being done in-house at Country Style in partnership with Toronto-based promotional agency Rennick Marketing Solutions.

As for Day 3 of the challenge between dawger and me, I won again! mwahahahaha. I won a free doughnut this time. Dawger won too today. That makes the score dawger 1 – Boo Radley 2.

Tim Hortons Roll Up the Rim to Win – Day 1

Other / Canada

Tim Hortons Roll Up the Rim to Win 2008 started today 🙂 Time to start guzzling loads of coffee each day!

A blogger known as dawger started an interesting blog where he tracks his Roll Up the Rim winnings. I think it’s a fun idea so I’ve decided to compete with him. Let’s see who’s the luckier person 🙂

I’ll buy one drink each day and post a picture of the cup. Today I bought a double double medium coffee and I didn’t win anything. Neither did dawger so the score’s 0 – 0.

Rip-Off Report: Vonage Canada downgrade practices

Reviews / Canada

vonagelogo.gif

Just a heads up for anyone thinking of dealing with/currently a customer of Vonage Canada. Before I continue, let me just say that as far as service goes I’ve been nothing but happy with Vonage. I’ve had them in my home for two years and every step of the way I’ve enjoyed it.

My wife and I have subscribed to their Unlimited Plan at $39.95/m since the inception of our service. Recently we realized that we weren’t even coming close to the 500 mins/m allotted by their $19.95 basic service plan and decided to downgrade. The service is billed a month in advance and we had made a payment yesterday for the upcoming month at our previous rate. No problem, we figured — they’d simply give us a prorate credit for the difference when we called to downgrade… right?

Nope! According to the customer service representative, Vonage has a no prorate policy. His argument was that Vonage sells service a month at a time, and that’s what we paid for. Ok — I can handle that. So I’m still on the Unlimited Plan until my next billing cycle since I’ve already paid for it, right?

Wrong again! The downgrade is effective the moment we request it. I asked what would have happened if we had wanted to upgrade in the middle of the month instead of downgrade. Would I be getting the upgraded service at no extra cost for the remainder of the billing cycle? Turns out the “no prorate policy” doesn’t apply in that situation. They’re more than happy to prorate when it puts money in their pockets, just not when it takes it out.

After all of this I was told I’d be charged a $12.99 fee for downgrading. Given that I’d essentially handed them $20 for free, you figure they’d at least wave the downgrade fee. Turns out they will, but not without a fight and not for the full amount. By the time I was done I ended up paying $3.83 to get the downgrade put through.

It may not be my happiest post, but I thought I should get the word out in case anyone here was on the fence about Vonage service. Like I said– I’ve enjoyed the service itself, but it’s best to know what you’re getting yourself into.

It may not be a deal, but it’s too cute not too share. Now if only I could get my kid to watch Star Wars with me.
