    You do not show the end date for Accor Hotels Super Sale which I think is 18th Oct

    Last day for 5250 Avios from Billy Hill, bingo! – £25 upfront (worse case scenario 0.5p/ point) but you can get most of that back if you switch to roulette black/ red (menu in top address bar)

      Blackjack is more fun isn’t it? I forgot all the odds stuff.

        According to T&C: Payouts cannot be made by BAEC avios

        • Shoestring says:

          then it’s 6563 Avios when I have the chance to buy them @0.8p (Avios + Money RFS redemption)

          either way Mr Billy Hill is handing out cheap Avios

          • pablo says:

            You need to bet £25 to get £25.25 back. Low risk roulette bets are excluded. Highly likely you will lose your initial stake so your profit is 25p. I know what I would do. Not bother.

          • Shoestring says:

            check your math 🙂

            worst case scenario you bet £25 and get back £52.50

            as it happened my son bet £25, got back £15 on black/ white strategy – so it basically cost £10 to get £52.50 in Avios or whatever

    OT Amex & billing dates
    Does anyone know if it is possible to change the date every year membership renews? Eg say I have the PRGCC that renews 12 August every year but I would like to bring that forward to 1 July, can this be done? This would mean shortening my free year so Amex would be getting my year 2 fee earlier so could be a minuscule win for them?
