    I've always dabbled with free bet and sign up promotions, but the Profit Squad sticky did focus my mind and for the last couple of months I have been using my spare time productively.

    I took the one months trial and had a hunt around their website. After a day or so it was clear the 'paid for' information was readily available for free by simply using Google, including the matched betting calculator.

    I had accounts with most the bookies, but I did sign up new ones with Coral and Bet365. In addition, I already have Paddy Power, Ladrbrokes, Will Hill and Sky Bet.

    I'm not interested in Dutching as this does carry some risk unless you are prepared to offset it by investing a lot of time for a small return. I will take a free cash casino offer when they are made available but I've not taken any with wagering requirements. I have no doubt some of these (including Bingo) are profitable, but are not without risk and as my time is limited I have decided to stick with these bookies and the offers I know.

    If you don't have any of the accounts I mention above, then there is a good 500 to be had from the sign up offers. On an ongoing basis I limit my matched betting to the following offers, which in all takes me about 2 hours a week.

    SkyBet: Near daily money back if you horse finishes 2nd and sometimes third. You can normally wager 25 on this and if the lay odds are close you should be able to match the bet for under 1 loss, with a 25 bonus if it's 2nd or third. There are times when you can lay it for no loss at all

    Also, they have frequent extra place bets. Again, these can be laid for a minimal loss and can pay well if you are lucky enough to have a decent priced horse come in the extra place.

    In addition to all, there is a 5 free bet for wagering 25 a week.

    Ladbrokes: A TV football game will often have a free 10 bet in play when you bet 25 pre match. Odds are very tight on TV games so you can lay this for a very low cost and lock in a small profit. I would recommend placing the inplay bet at half time to avoid getting caught out by fast changing odds.

    Paddy Power: these have similar offers to the above two as well as some other interesting ones that are usually profitable

    Coral Bet: Their double your winnings offer on some TV footy games is great. The maximum extra is 100 so place a bet on the team you think will win to make exactly 100 profit. Lay it off. Again there will be tight odds so the matched bet should cost no more than 2. If the team you bet on happens to win both halves, then you will win 100 for a 2 risk. My most recent success on this was the Spurs v Chelsea game last week. In addition, there is a 5 free bet club. You have to opt in each week and the free bet has to be earned Monday to Thursday and used that weekend, so it's more restrictive than the Sky Bet one but money for nothing.

    Will Hills: This is my bookie of choice if I have a lazy afternoon and there is racing on They usually have a meeting where if your Horse wins by 5 lengths you get a 25% win bonus up to 100 and if it loses in 2nd by 5 lengths you get your bet refunded up to 25. Not loads in this but over the course of a meeting, you should get one or 2 hits.

    Bet365: Decent various offers and reload bonuses that are easy to work off. On top of the 250 sign up bonus there is a further 50 for using a mobile device

    I'm not interested in trailing the web for every offer. I'm also not going to put time into get 5 free bets, of which you might only realise a 4 profit.

    If I'm missing any obvious decent earnings that are not time intensive, please let me know
    Don't take offence. I'm normally ruder than this.

      Spent a few weeks (at most around 4 hours total time) on it and made around 200. Haven't ploughed much in mind you as I was being a bit cautious but I suspect if you have a big enough balance you can get 500 from the sport sign ups alone.

      Tried a couple of the bingo things. 40-50ish back for 10 spent plus 10 minutes of your life isn't a bad return. Although on one i did only make about 7 which was annoying!

      Will probably get back into it over the next couple of weeks as it's an easy way to make money in times when I might be channel surfing or mindlessly looking at social media stuff.
      Because I'm bored, it's funny, and I hate you. There you are, the holy trinity of "why?"

      Best I keep away from even reading about this anymore in detail otherwise I could get hooked on this promise of easy money at the bookies.

      Good luck everybody, although long term I doubt how this can work without being banned by the bookies or a crash and chase the loses scenario.

      I was fortunate that I had sufficient cash to be able to take a few opportunities at a time and not have to worry about having to shuffle money about much.

      No multiple accounts and no slots or bingo stuff of any note. In fact, I keep my slots/casino/binggo accounts on another spreadsheet tab and they're showing an additional combined profit of 122.65. I'm not sure what my biggest horses win has been as I find the record keeping dull so don't do it in detail - maybe 300 or so.

      I guess I should say that I've used the winnings to have a little gamble myself here and there, generally low stakes high odds (Three bets of 10, 5 and 5 returned over 200 on the Big Bash yesterday morning for example) and I've been quite successful with that. That could maybe account for 1000 or so of the current profit.

      If you are disciplined to stick to the matched betting opportunities then there is no loss chasing as there are no losses other than small qualifying losses, eg you can a small loss of 1-2 in order to win a free bet than can be converted into guaranteed cash at a rate of 75-80% of the free bet value.

      Getting banned (or gubbed or restricted) by the bookies is definitely a risk and WILL happen. The art is trying to stay below the radar to preserve the life of your accounts for as long as possible.

      Hi everyone

      Firstly, thanks to Clipped Gull for bringing this back to everyone's attention and to many other who have commented on this thread. Skimming through it I notice some people are quite selective about which offers they do, with many avoiding casino or bingo offers. So I would just like to say that if anyone has any questions on why you should do such offers and why we are so sure they are profitable that we include them in our service please fire away and I'll check back periodically. If they weren't profitable long term, then including them would cost us customers. So I really encourage you all - with discipline of course to ONLY spin when and as advised - to get involved with them. There is short term risk but if you have 1k or more and you stick to the small offers you will see your bank steadily grow, albeit with the occasional downturn. You cannot chase losses if you are taking value, and that is what these offers give you.

      One more thing though, just want to refer to King Cole's comment above, that yes *some* of the paid for information is available free online, but there isnt anywhere paid or free that we are aware of advising anyone to dutch the races that we suggest. The risk of one horse dropping out and therefore the number of places being paid dropping from 3 to 2 for example, is already considered. We accept that this happens on occasion but make so much on most other occasions that it is like losing a quid but finding a tenner half an hour later.

      Really glad to see we have so many members from here who have stuck with it and are reporting such impressive profits!

      Cheers
      Davy
