FOR the past few weeks I've been doing a little experiment on Ladbrokes' moneyback acca coupon.
Using a grid loyalty card you have to pick at least five teams (max stake £25) and if you get one wrong your stake is refunded as a free bet.
I don't often do five-team accas but there is a lure of money back – and of course many bookies offer this service online too. One reason I go to Ladbrokes and William Hill shops is to walk the dug but also to have a bit of banter with a few of the regulars and staff.
Last week both my lines were beaten by two and the good news is you can get your money back with two wrong on a line of at least 5 selections.
Place a bet using your grid card on the moneyback acca coupon and if you get 3 correct let me know. Simply put up details of the bet and I'll pick one person with 3 from 5 to have up to £25 refunded to his card and you can say Grid Riddance to bad luck.
Last week's winner was charliescot who had also had three out of five on two lines – so he'll get £10 refunded. Email email@example.com with your grid card ID number and I'll pass it on to Ladbrokes.
But we don't want to just see the losers – let's have the winners too. And if you have a tactic when it comes to this type of offer let us know.
My first bet is going on my five homes – Everton, Wigan, Falkirk, Peterhead and Annan and all are hot favourites.
The second is five homes at much bigger prices – Bournemouth, Sheffield Wednesday, Blackpool, Coventry and Stirling. I'll put up exact odds after placing the bets in the morning.
Today was a bit of a disaster – the results with teams on the first line were ridiculous and while the second was better it was two wrong.
Remember if you had 2 wrong on the moneyback acca promo using your grid card let me know here as a comment or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and one person will have their stake refunded to a maximum of £25.
£25 pays £154.12
