Just in time for holiday gifting, the restaurant chain's U.S. guests can create their own personal Tim Card® online and on Facebook
DUBLIN, OH, Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop enthusiasts can now send their friends and family the gift of Tim Hortons with a personal touch.
Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop launched a new platform to personalize its Tim Card®. The platform allows fans of the brand to create their own unique gift card from a personal photo or image. Fans can send a Tim Card® in an electronic eGift format or a traditional plastic card.
"Giving a gift card to someone doesn't have to feel impersonal anymore," said Mike Meilleur, executive vice president, Tim Hortons U.S. "We hope our guests will incorporate their favorite memories with their favorite place to visit."
The customizable Tim Card® is available in a set denomination ($10, $15, $25, $50, $100) or a specific value (up to $100). Guests will pay a surcharge of $4.50 for personalization and production.
The Tim Card® was previously only available for purchase in Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurants and select retail grocers. The availability to purchase the Tim Card® online and through social media channels is an added convenience for U.S. guests who may prefer to shop online.
Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop partnered with Buyatab for the technology behind the personalization photo platform. Buyatab is a service provider that specializes in the online sales of physical and digital gift cards for leading retailers.
