You can't lose, if you order a telly on sunday or monday. As you have 7 days to return


although remember you still must pay for the tv you buy, and you then get the credit to spend on ANOTHER tv from what I have read.

Bookies are offering 15/8. Surely they're better odds?

I read the full t&c and deleted my post. Saturday is closing date for offer. You can return for a full refund under DSA

This seems a bit bonkers to me what with distance selling regs and the relatively short price of Murray.

I can't see this offer lasting until the final...

I don't really think they've thought this through :p

How much do you think it would cost to return a 42" plasma though?

.
Be great if you only buy the TV after he's reached the final, but before the match begins. Should be about 50:50 chance then.
#12
If he gets to the final, well worth a punt.
Buy a tv, don't open it, and return it if he loses, no brainer!!


Wait until he's through the semi's though.
#13
So, could I say, Order a TV the day before the final match (assuming he gets that far) and then if he loses, cancel the order straight away...

That doesn't seem very profitable from their point of view.....

And imagine if Federer gets knocked out somehow, and he ends up playing a no name!!!!
#15
I'm pretty sure this offer will be pulled early. I certainly cannot envisage a situation where Murray is through to the final and they are still taking orders. People will just be ordering high-priced TVs and partaking in some matched-betting type shenanigans.

Don't forget your cashback site ;)
#16
But you can only use the value of the bought TV to buy something else in their store so everyones happy, great PR stunt if you ask me, voted hot.
#17
So does this offer allow you to buy the tv like the day before the final?

When is the final?

Lay on betfair at 7/2.

So purchase £500 tv. Lay against with £90 stake.

If Murray wins, you get free TV and pay out £405. If he loses you get £90 off TV price. [Im sure someone could calculate a stake which equalises returns]

Is this analysis correct? The closer you do this to the final (assuming he gets through) the more money you make since it'd be better odds to lay. Especially if federer gets knocked out.

edit: Actually thinking about this. It is simply an even odds bet where you get a TV is payment. Rubbish odds since you arent getting cash and betfair offers 7/2 to back.


Looks along the right lines - not sure on the lay figure. Don't forget the money you "win" if Murray wins is credit to spend at cdiscount as opposed to cold hard cash. If you wait the price for Murray will drop but you risk him getting knocked out...obviously you won't be able to lay then... so lock in, or gamble. Oh and the 5% betfair commission.

Think I'll be passing on this offer but 'tis a good un.

Buy TV @ £500
Lay £112.36 @ 4.5, 5% commission risking £393.26

If Murray wins Wimbledon you get £500 account credit - £393.26 payout = £106.74 profit
If Murray doesn't win you win your lay = £112.26*95% = £106.74 profit


So if im right.

Do you either end up with a tv plus 106 profit

or if he loses you just get the money from the layed bet which you pay off and keep 106 profit?

Thanks. WIll become more tempting as the tournament progresses. If federer gets knocked out and murray becomes odds on to win, the return will be very high.

You end up with either:

1.) A TV that cost you £500
2.) £106 from betfair.

or

1.) A TV that cost you £500
2.) £500 credit at cdiscount
3.) You lose £393 cash to betfair.

.......plus any cashback. (quidco etc)

TV + £500 account credit - £393 cash
or
TV + £107 cash

where TV costs you £500.

edit: Its not really that attractive since you wouldn't buy the credit for £393 normally and there prices arent necessarily the best and hence £107 cash may not be worth it. Need odds to improve or use the DSR trick.

......but you also owe £393 cash to betfair.


i understand the second line thats if he wins isnt it and you just pay out to the layer for the amount you lost but overall you can pay that off with the extra free credit

but how does the first work please cheers
#34
Your CDdiscount account would be credited with the full price of the TV. This credit is only valid for 30 days and for a singletransaction. So if Andy wins and you have £1000 credit you would need to be buying £1000 worth of kit. In effect you will have spent £1000 for £2000 of kit which is 50% off the lot. So the TV is NOT FREE, it's a half price deal !!!!!


Still worth a punt for the 7 day refund rule, as long as you know what else you are going to buy when Andy wins!!

You're winning money from your bet that murray won't win.

mumbojumbo
Would it be awfully unsporting if I buy the TV, hope that Murray doesn't win, collect the £107 profit from Betfair and then return the telly to CDiscount? :oops:


Thats not really special though.

Thats just DSR trick + a normal lay. The lay is at the correct price and so you may as well just do the DSR trick. The lay doesn't give added value.

You need to understand it before doing anything on betfair.

What you'd be doing effectively is betting £393 that Murray *doesn't* win.......which gets you the £106.

It's the opposite to a usual bet and is called laying.......but DON'T do it unless you are fully confident of what to do.

That'd be the bit that seems not to have been given too much thought by those that run it. It'd depend if you would be happy to keep the TV, or think you could sell on and lose less than £106 in doing so, and how much it may cost if you have to actually return the TV.

The longer Murray stays in the shorter the odds and the more lucrative doing as you suggest would become.
