Swift Current's Cherrill Steinley was all smiles today as she received a $5,000 MasterCard Prepaid Card after winning the major prize in the Tim Hortons RRRoll Up The Rim To Win contest.
Steinley was one of three $5,000 MasterCard prepaid card winners in the province this year, joining lucky winners in Moose Jaw and Regina. According to the Tim Hortons Roll Up The Rim To Win website, across North America, the overall approximate odds of winning one of the 100 $5,000 MasterCard Prepaid Cards was a staggering one in 2,609,598.
"It's exciting. I can't wait to spend it on my family and hopefully do a few fun things with my kids," she said on Thursday after signing the paperwork to receive her prize.
She recalls that it was approximately six to eight weeks ago that she walked into the Tim Hortons on Swift Current's North Service Road where she bought a large double double coffee for herself and an extra large coffee for husband Travis.
"I was pretty excited. I asked Travis to look and make sure I was reading it right."
The couple have a five year old and six year old, and bought a new home and moved in last month.
Dade and Korilee Getzinger, Tim Hortons restaurant owners in Swift Current, were excited to hand over the major prize.
"It's exciting because there's over 4,000 stores nationwide, and there's only 100 $5,000 gift cards. For someone to win in our store is pretty exciting," admitted Dade Getzinger.
While they have had 2,300 coffee and food prizes awarded this year alone, they were happy to present the first major Roll Up prize won in Swift Current since the start of the Tim Hortons promotion 13 years ago.
"Every day people were rolling up their tabs hoping that they'd be a big winner. To have someone locally is especially is super exciting and hopefully we'll see more winners in the future," he said. "It's just exciting to see a big prize like this."
