Oh no, that sounds bad. I moved into rented with my son for 6 months (minimum term) whilst I looked as did not want to lose my sale. Luckily no storage costs as stored everything in conservatory but was strange being 'homeless' until I managed to find something.

Might be worth looking at other houses then, just in case. Also you will be in a better position with nothing to sell, so may even get something better and cheaper :) Alternatively, can you barter the price down if you have increased costs due to THEIR fault - after all I presume you offered on it due to it being no chain etc .............................................

Also, you may make more money in buying a different house/bartering than you would in mb'ing etc.

Good luck, and keep us all posted on your progress :)

I'm a bit miffed at myself because I wasted a weekend of MB.

I was doing the unibet offer on Saturday, did my first bet which lost and then the first bet with the bonus won. I was looking at the oddsmatcher to find another bet to meet the wagering requirements and thought I had found the perfect thing. I clearly wasn't paying attention because the cricket match isn't until Thursday which means I have all my smarkets balance tied up for almost a week. Also if the bookmaker bet wins I'll only have a few hours to bet £24 to meet the rest of the wagering requirements before my 7 days is up.

I have all my Betfair balance tied up with another bet for a match tomorrow evening (placed the bet on Friday). I'm also waiting on a withdrawal of funds from 2 sites.

So not a productive weekend and I'm disappointed because I wanted to keep the momentum going as I had a cracking first week.

EVERYONE makes mistakes at the start with matched betting

If it doesn’t go you way just remember how much money you have made from the start and move on!!

I know you are right but I can't help being annoyed with myself.

Still, it's a new week and everything should be settled ready for the weekend. :)

Royal Ascot starts next Tuesday

Earned a HUGE BUNDLE of cash from it last year as there were so many horse offers on so I'm expecting great things this year too!

Can anyone remember what last years offers were? The usual ITV Racing ones/Money back if this horse wins/Betway first race offers I know.

Did Bet365 have anything? WH have free bets going?

Maybe even get a £1 free Ladbrokes bet!

So the match I had bet on was rained off on Thursday (!!!) which meant I needed to wager £80 on Thursday evening when I got back from work rather than the £24 I expected. I don't know how but I managed it.

I managed to make £25 from the free £40 bet after the 3x wagering requirement. I'm pretty please considering the mistakes I made. :)

Ladbrokes nahhhhh

Coral.... maybe lol (or at least just merge with another bookie!)

Thing we need to remember if most of these brands existed first on the high street with only local competition. Now they probably conduct most of their trading online so the competition is more fiercer!

Coral are already merged with Ladbrokes as such although they operate separately. Think this is one of the reasons why you only get promos from one or the other these days.
