A Summer Cottage Experience with VISA and Tim Hortons Review

You may have heard that my favourite coffee place in the whole wide world now accepts VISA. Yes, that would be none other than Tim Hortons! They now are offering their customers another way to pay for their purchases. Normally, I use cash or debit card to pay, but the last time I went through the drive-thru I used VISA. It’s very convenient for me having more ways to pay.

If you follow me on Fourquare, you will see just how often I go to my local Tim Hortons. It’s usually once a day, but I’ve been known to hit the drive-thru three times in one day. Their coffee is just that good! When I went to New York City in April, one of my American friends found a Tim Hortons down the street from our hotel. She was so excited to tell me because she knows how much I go there!

Before we head out to the beach or any kind of road trip this summer, John always makes the mandatory Tim Hortons pit stop. I don’t even have to tell him anymore. He’s trained well! He always orders an XL Triple Triple and I get the XL with three cream. Lately though, he’s been buying the Iced Cappucinos. My daughter, Bridget, loves the Frozen Lemonade. I love enjoying my coffee while we take a scenic drive around the Annapolis Valley, NS. Sometimes, I’ll make my own coffee at home (Tim Hortons of course!) and bring our own mugs. We are packed and ready for the nice weather to hit us!

Bridget has been asking to head to the beach for the past week now that school is out. We are hoping to head there this weekend if it doesn’t rain. In the meantime, we had fun playing catch and frisbee in our backyard.
