I bought one of these a month ago and it was a physical card. It arrived and worked fine. However I noticed that the history on the card was a bit odd. It was purchased for with a $2 balance and then loaded up with a $98 balance afterwards. Makes me wonder if the $98 didn't come from a legitamte source...
Wow, thanks for sharing your experience.
I was on the edge and now it is clear that I shall pass.

Bitter deal!
Nah.
I've always found Timmie's to be lighter and mellower than most "boutique" coffees.

Now StarYucks on the other hand........

That's illegal. There is no tax on gift certificates.

I took the plunge on the $100 GC and submitted a Best Offer. Beware that there is a 5% sales tax added that I wasn't aware of. So i really only saved $9 after shipping and tax.

Lets hope this is not a scam, but that is what Paypal is for.
Certainly should not be paying tax on a GC. A GC is treated as cash, as when you go to the retailer the after-tax price of your purchase is deducted from your card.

That means of course, that considering Ontario is an HST province, assuming you make purchases that don't qualify for the exemption, after you spend the full value of the card, you are actually paying an extra $4 (after shipping and tax) for the gift card. Even if you do make qualifying purchases, your net saving is only $4.

$100 card for $75, its digital card.
Bought one. At worst I can do a PayPal chargeback if I find they used a stollen credit card... No tax or shipping on this one. Though only 10 feedback and 2 months account... Seems risky. I get an ice capp on the way to work everyday. With his heat probably one on the way back also, or at lunch... So it'll take me like 2 weeks to use it all up.

once you get that card transfer it to another card to be safe since the seller knows the pin.

I just bought that 75$ one, will see what happens, I had 30$ in my papypal account from selling on ebay, and I used Visa to pay the rest so I will dispute it if it doesn't work. I have a tims card in my wallet to transfer the balance too right away.

To save $25 and possible loose $175 and being scammed. Not worth it.

well I have had digital cards before and was able to move them to a card, so I would assume I can transfer a physical to physical.
