Do you remember a little while ago I hosted a post from Jon at The Money Shed about ways to earn money from home? Well, I have another post from Jon today about matched betting. It’s not something I’ve ever got round to trying, so I’m not guaranteeing anything, but I understand the principle and I’ve always wanted to give it a go. Why not give it a try and let me know how you get on? (Be careful and cautious with your money of course.)
I believe it was 90s one hit wonder artist Betty Boo who announced her arrival with the profound lyric “it’s me again, yes, how did you guess? ‘Cause last time, you were really impressed”
Indeed the last time I guest posted on this fantastic blog I told you and now I’m back with 1 way for you to earn over £1000 a month AND it’s TAX FREE. It’s called matched betting. It’s easy to do, 100% legal, very easy to follow and will have you earning some serious cash in as long as it takes you to make a bet online. It’s also worth mentioning that all this is RISK FREE. You will not lose money doing matched betting – it is not betting in the traditional sense. Basically you earn money by taking advantage of all the free bet offers that bookies give out and harnessing GUARANTEED PROFIT from them.
I’ve been personally doing matched betting for the last 2 months and have earned over £2,500 so far. You can do this even if you have never placed a bet in your life!
In this post I’m going to do a ‘beginners guide to matched betting’ type thing, which will give you enough of an idea for the basics and should set you on the path to earning some major money from home.
I am going to make you around £15 with zero risk in the next few minutes so listen closely
The bookie we will be using is and the exchange we will be using is Betfair.
Go to the Coral website and sign up. This bit should be pretty easy to do. Simply make an account with them and attach a debit card.

Our Qualifying Bet – OK, it’s time to get our hands dirty. Bookies offer free bets all the time to both new and existing customers. Usually to get those free bets you need to do something like bet £20 and get a £10 free bet free. If you were betting normally there is a chance you might lose your £20 on your qualifying bet just to get access to the £10 free bet. We are going to overcome that problem by laying (betting against our bets) at the exchange (betfair).
Coral have a very simple and easy to follow sign up offer.
Bet £5 and get a £20 free bet.
To qualify for this £20 free bet we need to place a £5 bet at odds above 1.5. When we are doing matched betting we work in decimals so if you look at the VERY top of the coral website you will see you can select to use decimal – click that first.
