Tim Horton's Rewards - How to Bank Rewards without using them?

I go to Tim Horton's often. I have the App, my wife uses the physical card. When I get 7 purchases it shows 1 banked reward. Before, I used to be able to Bank a few rewards but now when i have one, and I scan my bar code on the app the store tells me it automatically uses the banked reward if its there. whats the point of banking if the stores cant let you save it for later? i swear something changed it was never like this? the store said they have no control when i scan my bar code to count as a purchase or a redemption, i find that difficult to believe.

I don't know if anything changed, but I do know you can bank (and keep banking) if you only make purchases within the app. The second you try to make a purchase outside the app, then it automatically redeems. This has been my experience the last few months.

That auto redeeming can get annoying because the location close to my work sometimes doesn't connect to the app. It's been happening a lot recently during the morning rush.

Only thing I can think of is purchasing something that isn't redeemable through a reward, so for example breakfast sandwich or something. That will bypass the reward and give you an extra point.

I’ve always been forced to redeem unless I order with the app.

In order to bank, you must only use the app or else it’ll use your reward automatically. Silly system. App needs a ton of work
