In the ultimate throwback move, Tim Hortons is now lowering the cost of a six-pack of assorted donuts from $6.59 to $0.60 if you place the order through Uber Eats.
According to Canada’s preeminent source for all things Tim Hortons, InsideTimmies, back in 1964, the first Tim Hortons Donut Shop — owned by Canadian NHL hockey player Tim Horton — charged $0.10 for each donut.
This offer is available at participating Tim Hortons locations and only while supplies last. If you don’t see the $0.60 offer at your local Tim Hortons through Uber Eats, then the offer isn’t available at that particular location.
It’s important to note that on top of the $0.60 there is $0.74 tax in Ontario and Uber Eats delivery fees.
For example, my “small order fee” came to $2 plus a service fee of $0.66 on top of the $2.99 delivery fee. This brought the total order amount to $6.99, which is actually $0.40 more than the cost of physically going to a Tim Hortons location and purchasing six donuts. It’s important to note that delivery fees with Uber Eats shift depending on your location. Pick-up is also only available at select Tim Hortons locations.
With all this in mind, there’s no limit to the number of six-donut multi-packs you can purchase. For instance, if you buy 10 six donut multi-packs (60 donuts), you end up only paying $6 for the donuts and don’t pay a small order fee. Your total then comes to roughly $17. For this deal to really be valuable, you need to order at least two six-donut multipacks.
“At Uber Eats, we know 2020 has been a challenging year for many. That’s why we’re taking our customers back to a better time with Uber Eats Throwback Thursdays,” said Lola Kassim, the general manager of Uber Eats Canada, in a recent press release.
“We’re thrilled to kick off with Tim Hortons donuts — and encourage Canadians to head back to the 1960s with us and enjoy a 6 pack of donuts for just $0.60.”
Uber Eats says it has plans to bring back classic menu items and prices for other restaurants in the coming weeks.
Update 26/11/2020: The story has been updated with more information about the actual cost of the $0.60 deal.
