French term or phrase:Banco les lève-tôt
Is this something to do with betting/gambling (early in the morning!?) perhaps? I have no related context, it simply appears in a list of commercial activities/outlets (see below) and I would be grateful for a hint, as I have no idea at all what it means! Thanks in advance.

...Tony. You are such a harsh schoolmaster (love it!) - I fully admit that sometimes I post my questions over-hastily and am multi-tasking at the time, so sometimes they are not as full of context as they should be. Anyway, some great suggestions from all concerned and I am sorry if I misled anyone.
or something like: 'first come, first served' - 'limited offer' etc. Yes, I see the idea. Trouble is, it was one of those websites it's not easy to navigate around (you keep getting stuck) so I couldn't find it on the actual website (plus, there's a chance it isn't even on there yet)...and hence see the exact way in which it is being used. But I think there is a great chance that it means 'the early bird catches the worm' (or something similar) as it is to do with mobile marketing - those annoying messages you get on your mobile phone - although in this case it is a voluntary thing - you only get them if you register with the service. Anyway, thanks to all contributors - this one really stumped me. I will grade when I come up for air (and my backlog!). Cheers to all.
Hi there. Maybe it's a'fun' rhyme for some kind of kiddies stuff (i.e. up early for school or early-bird pre-schoolers or something). Other than that, I don't see how you can work it out without soem kind of prompt/contenxt.

Great / a winner for early risers
Explanation: I don't think it's anything to do with betting.
this could mean as musch or as little as the original...
