[Tim Hortons] HOT! YMMV. Earn 7x Points per Order With Mobile App

Skip the line up and earn 7x points per order through their mobile app only.
How? Activate the 7x points on their app and make a minimum $1.50 purchase everytime. That's like buy one get one free coffee.
Expiry: goes on all week till July 12th.
Edit: This may be targeted marketing. YMMV.

Targeted? I don't see anything in my offers aside from the regular 2x points and deals. I order maybe once every two weeks.

Uninstalled the app after the spying allegations. Nobody else?

They should be giving out all kinds of deals and offers considering how intrusive they are

I made sure the permissions were set to only access location while using the app. Can they spy despite that?

Thanks. The way I read that screenshot though, Tim's is claiming that they only use your location when the app is open, and the author is saying that isn't true. I am talking about using permissions settings on my phone to only allow the app to access the GPS location when the app is open.

When you don't have the app open it can still access other information.
For example it can see which Wifi you are connected to and use that to determine your location (work IP, home IP).

I never installed this app and never will.

This has to be targeted and even then, I'm shocked they're offering this to anybody. 7x points literally gets you a free coffee.

Interesting, thanks. Does anyone know if it is possible (in Android) to limit this permission (and all others) to "only while using the app"?

I checked my Android 10.
App only has access to Locations and that too only when it's in use.

Thank you
