Hi guys and gals. I've been thinking of some ways I can contribute to the bitcoin economy, and yesterday in the morning while I was at my local Tim Hortons to grab a coffee it dawned on me that some Canadian bitcoin users may want to use their bitcoins to buy coffee.

So I was thinking of acting as a "purchase agent" for people who wish to do this. I'll buy the coffee card for you and mail it to you via regular Canada Post mail service. All you have to do is send me the bitcoin equivalent of the coffee card value.

This process may be a bit cumbersome, but hey it's another way you can make REAL use of your bitcoins without first exchanging them to fiat money.

True you can buy them online. But what is someone who happens to have bitcoins but no credit card to do?

And yeap Timmy's rocks!

My point was that you can buy them online, rather than buying them in person and mailing them to people yourself.  Tongue

Oh, right. I was aware of that, but I don't think it's a good idea because they charge too much for shipping. For example to ship to my postal code they're asking $6.98. If I was to simply mail the cards in a regular mail envelope (letter) it would cost maximum $1.

Also I'm not sure if they'll allow me to pay with a different address info yet ship to another.

But none of this stuff matter as it looks like there aren't many people interested in this.

Actually, YesToBitcoins just launched Tim Hortons e-gift cards, that can be paid with bitcoins. There are two versions:

For Tim Hortons Canada  http://yestobitcoins.com/tim-hortons-canada/
For Tim Hortons USA http://yestobitcoins.com/tim-hortons-usa/

I used to love Tim Hortons until I found out that there were sellers selling Starbucks giftcards for ~60 - 70% off, lol Tongue
