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.
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 spotking112 – so he'll get £21.50 refunded. Email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Today the plan worked well – a winner on the safer fivefold and stake back on the long shot. With the first one PSG and Barca were regarded as “bankers” and I couldn't see the others slipping up – but even if one had it would have been money back.
Hearts beat the 24-1 fivefold and remember they had a man sent off at 0-0 in the first half.
My first bet is a safer one going on:
Ayr (5.15pm), Barcelona
Paris St Germain
Pays £118.68 to a £25 stake
The second bet is riskier:
Hearts, Ross County
Pays £252.57 to a £10 stake
*Stake back – Hearts red didn't help
Remember if you get 2 wrong on the moneyback acca promo using your grid card let me know here as a comment or by email to email@example.com and one person will have their stake refunded to a maximum of £25.
