Tim Hortons is hoping Canadian coffee drinkers will warm up to its newest credit card offering. Canada’s favourite coffee chain has partnered with CIBC to launch the “CIBC Tim Hortons Double Double Visa Card.” This credit card is as Canadian as it gets – “double double” is slang when ordering a coffee, indicating two creams and two sugars.
