Right so after thinking this over for months, I am finally giving matched betting a go, after taking my car in to have its suspension coils replaced yesterday for a quoted £180 to then be stung with a £282.98 bill, because "the quote didn't include parts" not much of a f#x#in quote then excuse my language!! That's more of a stab in the dark! So anyway left me completely in the poop for the month to be honest! I hope I have done this matched betting right, everyone says once you know how, its gets easier, but I must admit still seemed pretty confusing to me!! Hope everyone is earning lots this month!!

first, sorry to hear about the car! Bloody garages!!

You are spot on that the more you do it the easier it gets as you are just doing the same equation over and over and over again ;)

Great to have you on here anyway @Duckers - look forward to reading more of your posts!

Well done on taking the plunge, a shame you never started a few months ago as you would be up to speed to take on all the Chelts offers, but wont be long in building up

I’m going to take the plunge tomorrow, just so I know I have totally got my head around how it works. For each and every time you want to make a profit, do you make a qualifying bet get your free bet and then do the profit bet, so basically you will always need to take up an offer of a free bet in order to make money? If so do the bookies just keep offering you free bets to enable this?

correct. The free bet is where you make the profit..

Each offer will come with extremely easy to follow instructions so don't worry about getting lost.

Yes bookies offer endless offers. You will blast through the sign up once in about a month or two (there are £1000 odd on Profit Accumulator for example) and since we've all been doing this for years we obviously finished those signup offers yonks ago and now do 'reload' offers which are offers for existing customers to do.. ;)

Sadly I think you were given an estimate rather than a quote :( sucks and I hate garages for their "flexible" arrangements. That said they should give a ballpark for the parts and caveat it.

Hope you do well on the MB though :)

Aye I can’t count how many times the car goes in for £200 of work and then it magically becomes £260 when it comes to picking up the car

They totally have you over a barrel!
