Just downloaded the app and I don't understand it. If I want to buy 4 coffees and pay for it with the app... Isnt there just a pay option? Do I actually have to order 4 coffees through the app and then go to drive through?
Large pay now button on the first page. But it is of dubious use unless you forgot your wallet. You won't get your free coffee that way. They want you to use the pre-order feature and avoid the "time consuming" process of ordering via the cashier. But if you are used to idling in a drive-thru line, saving time probably isn't your priority, so this app might not be for you.

Starbucks only has 10% of their customers use the pre-order feature. Many American chains have launched mobile order in the USA this year, but I'm not that sure it will catch on. Kind of like the self tellers at the grocery stores. Sometimes useful, but not always. Still, I remember elevator operators and gas station attendants, so you never know.

It might take a company to go fully digital like LaPresse, getting rid of their paper edition. Their tablet readership is much higher than for the Toronto Star that has both. Starbucks is trying a mobile order only store in a Seattle building, so it will be interesting if that spreads. But this might be a solution in search of a problem.

That being said, there is no joy equal to walking past 15 people to pick-up a hot coffee. Even better if you pre-ordered food and it is lunch time.

Settings (top left). My Balance. Balance Reload Amount.
It wouldn't even let me get into My Balance or anything in the settings menu for weeks, like not even accessible. It only showed the amount I currently had available.

Now it works. Wtf... I swear I tried it many times.

Paying full price for an item is a sin. :twisted:

Thanks OP. My SO loves the steeped tea kcups (don't ask my why) so it's an easy $10 for something I'd have to buy anyway. Better than mail-in rebate.

I searched on the iPhone. Even though the app advertises it needs OS 9.2, I think the app settings are set to a higher OS version and therefore my phone is being excluded in the search.

I can understand the motivation of app developers to release apps for only later releases of OS. It makes their job of testing the app easier.
Hmm, that's weird then. I'm a developer myself and the deployment target (earliest supported version) is part of the app binary you submit. The store listing is generated automatically from that. There's nowhere for a developer to enter a "wrong" supported version even if they wanted to.

Anyway, here's a link. https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/tim-hor ... 83086?mt=8

Interesting. Cannot understand why I do not see the app in the store. My iPhone reports I am running version 9.3.5.

Oh that's lame..
I've got a 4 year old and a 2 month old baby so it's always drive thru for me. That doesn't help out a lot... I like the way Starbucks does it instead.

Thanks for the info!!

FYI: I had to update my TimHortons app to see the banner at the top that states "Place 3 orders to get a free coffee!"

Please ensure you have the most updated version!

If I am not mistaken their 20pc Tea boxes are $3.50 each so after this rebate it's like $1.03 (tax in in Alberta) for three boxes. I'm in! Thanks for posting.

Buy 3 cookies (1$ each), 3 times and get a free coffee worth the same amount.
