I've been following Profit Accumulator, I was unable to do the first Coral offer because five years ago I did a one off bet and never used the account again but I'm obviously not a new member so I went straight onto the Betfred one.

The bets been placed for my qualifying bet, I'm a bit nervous however I've triple checked what I've done and it looks all correct!

I've made a start into matched betting, which I think was the biggest thing for me because I'm so worried about losing my money.

You won't lose money! Even if you make a little mistake here and there the profit will wipe out any accidental loses easily.

I've been going for a month now and I'm £473 up :D

Your mileage may vary but even slowly going through the sign up offers whilst building up your balance at the exchange you should bring in a couple hundred in the first month no problem :)

If anything seems to complicated don't attempt it yet! There's plenty of the more basic sign up offers to get you started, once you're feeling more confident you can start to branch out but KISS to start with and you can't lose!

I would say good luck but you don't need it ;)

Thank you so much, it all sounds so positive.

I think the scariest part for me is when the liability can be quite a bit however I've just got to remember that I'm not actually losing that money.

I just want to put your mind at ease. I was so very nervous and started on Thursday and right now I have made a profit of £138. I am so happy and really enjoying it :)

You're up a lot already! I lost my job on Friday and I've been so worried about money. I know it's not easy money however I really need this to work for me. It sounds like it's been a good start for you - how much did you start in your pot if you don't mind me asking?

You've started that's the main thing!

You will make money from each and every offer that you do!

So the only way your money can now go is upwards!! MATHEMATICALLY!

My pot is £130. I got an email yesterday with a £5 free bet from Ladbrokes even though I had already done the sign up offer, so I was pleased with that. I had a few I couldn't do as I had previously done the odd grand national bet so had signed up before. I prefer doing the horse bets as they are a quicker turnaround than waiting on footie scores xx

I know nothing about horse racing at all and I'm a bit disappointed I didn't start this sooner because it may be too soon for Cheltenham.

I bet on the football this evening for my qualyfying bet and it worked great. I was doing the Betfred offer, I lost at the bookies and won at the exchange so have my money back immediately (apart from about 40p) and now have to wait 48 hours for my free bets to come through - this is where I get excited now!

Congratulations on starting your MB journey. Just take your time and do the ones that you're confident of doing. For the more complicated ones, you can always seek advice of others on the PA forum. Or here!

Don't worry about missing out on Cheltenham. There's one every year!

Agree. And there are other festivals too. So even if you are not ready for Cheltenham you will be by Ascot, Goodwood or Ebor.

Cheltenham is not the only fruit

Thank you both of you - my free bets came through this morning so I've used them and will make a £20 profit which is a great start for my first time!

It's great hearing that there are more festivals. I know nothing about horse racing and it seemed like Cheltenham is all everyone talks about. Maybe it's just because I've started right before it.

I keep trying to tell myself this but @Jon is insistent in whipping me into a frenzy :p

Yes, I started January 2018 and I felt that Cheltenham probably was too early for me last year, so I didn't really feel ready to take advantage.

I'm not really into Horse Racing either-I was strictly a once a year punter. The fact that Cheltenham is so big is shown by the fact that of the top 40 biggest races of the year (in betting terms), 25 take place over these 4 days.

Do you feel ready this year? I think it's definitely too early for me. I've done my qualifying bet but just waiting for me free bet, which is one of tomorrow nights football matches.

I feel that I am ready, although I won't make as much as some, which is partly due to the fact that I work full-time, plus I'm going on holiday on the Thursday evening!

Who is the qualifying bet with?

The qualifying bet is with Betfred. I did that and the £30 free bets came in this morning which I've put on one of tomorrows Champions League matches. I was going to do one of tonight's however I didn't have enough liability.

You will make money no problem from matched betting I can vouch for it as I've made around £700 in just over 1 month. Stick to the plan and work through your sign ups until your balance increases. If you can afford to lend yourself the money in to cover liability you can recoup it back at a later date. As long as you stick to the plan you can't lose. My advice to anyone is stop spinning on the slots when the free spins are done. I've made a boo boo too many times on them and cost myself money I put good effort into making.

Good luck moving forward

Where do you find the free spins? I've seen so many people talk about it but don't know what they are.

Emails, site banner ads and mobile notifications mate. They are everywhere once you are registered with a good few bookies. Always read the Ts&Cs so you know where you stand.

I won a few from sky on their win machine, a few from BWin on their wee spinny wheel for prizes. Dig about the promotion pages too and you'll find some freebies kicking about.
