I'm getting on really well with Profit Accumulator but my £1 trial ends on Saturday, do I pay, are others much different and going to completely confuse me? I do like the amount of handholding each PA offer does.. Or switch to a different site?
Tbh I'm happy to pay, as its been quite good, but I thought I'd ask the experts as always!

It's up to you really.

Most of the popular matched betting services offer a free or reduced trial so you can carry on trying other services if you want.

We've got an Oddsmonkey 7 days for £1 offer here if you want to try that - https://comparethematchedbetting.co.uk/oddsmonkey-review/

My view is that I would go to Odds monkey... I find PA good to learn the ropes but OM has more offers and imo better more up to date matches more bang for your buck

For my first 3 months of MB I subscribed to both. PA was still good for helping you through the offers, but their Oddsmatcher is poor compared to the OddsMonkey one. I eventually moved to OM only once I had got past the hand holding stage. Personally I think the OM forum now surpasses the PA one and the additional tools you get are definitely a bonus. As both PA and OM have 0% commission offers with Smarkets and Matchbook for premium subscribers then that alone will pay for the monthly subscription.

I really like PA personally so would just pay and use that, at least while you get all the starter offers under your belt :)

I'm interested in this too. I don't subscribe to any of the sites but my 0% introductory offer to Matchbook has just finished. Wondering if the 0% Matchbook/OM deal is just for new users to Matchbook? Betdaq one says you need to be new user.

*can't access above link as open to premium users only.

From the link:

"Applies to new matchbook accounts only and existing members already on 0% offer
There is no need to do anything if you are currently on the 0% commission".

There is another link here (https://community.oddsmonkey.com/topic/40799/matchbook-commission-changes/18) which says "Users who would like to know what commission rate they are due for the New Year can private message @Matchbook and they will look to provide an update for you. They will also consider some requests to be switched to the Odds Monkey offer at their discretion only, " However, you can only see the content of the links if you are a subscriber to OM, and there is no guarantee of getting the offer - as it just continued for me I didn't realise they were limiting new people on that deal.

I'm a very experienced matched bettor, I'd still recommend a paid service for the odds matching software, forums, videos etc as there's always new tactics to learn

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.
