Tim Hortons Gift Feature Lets You Send People Free Coffee & Baked Goods To People

'Tis the season of giving! The new Tim Hortons gift feature lets you send free coffee and baked goods to people by trading in your rewards points.

On December 2, the coffee chain announced that registered Tims Rewards members can now use their points to gift menu items through Tims It Forward.

It's available through the app or website and all you need to know about the person you're sending a treat to is their email address

Editor's Choice: You Can Get Up To $1200 From The Feds in 2021 For Each Child Under 6 You Have

December 2 new Tims It Forward feature begins

You can send a classic donut or cookie for 50 points, brewed coffee, tea or premium baked good for 70 points, hot chocolate, french vanilla or iced coffee for 100 points and a frozen or espresso-based beverage or 10-pack of Timbits for 140 points.

When you send a Tims gift, the person can accept it through email and then activate it by signing into their Tims Rewards account in the app or on the website.

If someone isn't a rewards member, they can still get a free treat by redeeming it with a QR code sent to their email.

For anyone getting a gift, it has to be activated within six months of being sent and then used within two weeks.

This new feature isn't just for the holidays, it'll be available all year long.

Though if you're looking to get into the festive spirit, the holiday menu at Tims is available now.

A Guy Didn't Tip For A $3 Coffee & The TikTok Video Is Dividing The Internet

Should you tip for coffee because a screen asked you to?

If you've ever paid for a coffee with a card you've probably seen the "add tip" screen.

That screen is forcing you to make a choice. Do you tip because you're asked to? Should you tip for caffeine like you would for alcohol? Or do you need to see more than basic service before you fork over something extra?
