There might be a few people out there who have thought about it, but haven't yet given it a go. Whilst it's not for everyone, (if you have an addictive personality for example), for the majority it's a great way to make lots of easy money. To be more specific, it's a great way to make lots of easy money, Tax free!

I've been doing it for just under a year, and I'm closing in on £6,000 profit.

If you want to give it a go, my tips/hints would be

a) Sign up to one of the regular MB survey sites. I use Profit Accumulator, but there are others. PA costs £17 per month in the first year. Whilst you could do MB without one, it really isn't a good use of your time, plus you'll earn far more money as a site member.
b) Make sure that you use a separate email address for your betting company sign-ups. You don't want your usual email account to be swamped with betting company emails. Some people set up a separate bank account too. I don't, but you might want to.
c) Take your time, particularly with the first few bets, and each time you do a new type of bet. There's no race. Most of the sign up offers will still be there months down the line (I'm still on the last sign up offer on PA after nearly a year)
d) Make sure that you explain to your husband/wife/partner what you are doing. This is really not something to be done in secret.
e) Use the MB site forum to pose your questions if you're unsure-there will usually be someone helpful who can assist you.
f) Don't worry if you get 'gubbed' by any betting companies-it happens to everyone
g) Most importantly, use my referral code for Profit Accumulator-270844- lol! :)

£6000 is great going!

I always feel Matched Betting has a huge WHY DIDN'T I START THIS EARLIER! thing attached to it once you soon realise just how easy it is and how quickly you can make the money compared to any other way of online earning!!

Keep it up and you'll be over the £10k mark before you know it! Especially with Cheltenham coming up!

Yeah, last year's Cheltenham was a bit early for me to take full advantage of it. Hopefully that won't be the case this year!

Thanks guys I could do with some positive encouragement at the moment, only be going since November 2018 and was doing well, but because of other issues had to use 90% of my winnings on something else and now got very little left, so I guess onwards and up yep.
All the best to everyone for 2019..

I'm in the same boat as Max, I've somehow spread my pots a bit too thin and now have very little to play with, so I'm kind of stuck with the odd £30 here and the odd £30 there and not sure how to get back on course!

Is that lots of small 30 quids in different bookies/exchanges? You need to withdraw any unused funds and put it to work.

Thinking about what I'd do with a tiny bankroll:
- Hit all the no-deposit free spins offers, e.g Galacasino daily wheel, William Hill free spins, maybe Betfair Casino/Arcade sometimes have free spins.
- turn over the low hanging fruit offers: William Hill Super Odds Treble, Skybet weekend trebles, WH weekend scratch offer etc
- do the really small welcome bonuses. I.e. Coral, Ladbrokes. And turn your qualifying bets and free bets over as quickly as possible.

Good luck to everyone else. I am another newbie (we have had a couple of previous gos and not got the hang of it) and I feel that I am finally starting to get it, but really wish that I could do one bet offer at once to know where I am up to replenish my pot. I am quite often only making about 8 or 9 pounds per offer but guessing that is about right. Think its a case of slowly but surely.

Amazon just contacted me regarding my seller account... I wasn't aware I still had one as I last used it in 2004!
Can I believe I've actually just bought some proper lights for LEGO animations - a bit of a short sale on Amazon! :D
So Respondent have contacted me to take part in a face to face interview next week.
Excited & should take me over £100 goal for January....
I really should get back into Matched Betting - I'm pretty sure most of what I make goes to Odds Monkey as I don't bother cancelling the subscription - oops!
So as a newbie here I'm still trying to get my head round it all & which is the way to channel my time. I've signed up to Prolific & Resondent thanks to @Jon
I've earned a few 3.00 on Prolific so far & waiting on surveys to come back from Respondent that I've applied for, so fingers crossed.
I have a few items listed on Ebay which I hope I will put to my 1st try at MB, scares me to be honest.
