Profit Accumulator member Jan is a secretary who lives in North Yorkshire. She has used matched betting as an alternative to a second job. Here's a little more about her...

Whereabouts do you live?

In a little log cabin in the middle of nowhere in Nidderdale, North Yorkshire.

Tell us about your household

I'm married with two little scragamuffin kittens, Millie and Mittens.

If you work, what is your job?

I work part-time as a secretary, studying book-keeping.

How long have you been a member of PA?

I've been a member for 2 and a half years.

How did you hear about it?

A friend that I'd made online with another online business opportunity told me about it and yes I was sceptical as nothing I'd ever done online had worked to that date and usually involved trying to get other people to do it as well.

"I tend to spend an hour a day on average on matched betting"

How have you found it - how much do you make from it?

I find PA addictive in a good way - it's always fun to earn money!

What do you do with the profit you make?

I've not bought anything specific with the money but it has meant I have been able to stop doing a Saturday job without worrying that I wouldn't have enough money and not have to increase hours in my part-time job.

How much time do you spend on matched betting?

I tend to spend an hour a day on average on matched betting. I mostly do the casino offers, sometimes I do more sometimes less, hard to say!

Why does matched betting appeal to you?

Matched betting appeals to me as you can make money from it without having to recruit other people into the business but if you do, you are also rewarded. I find the casino offers exciting as I just never know if I'm going to get another £1,100 from a 20p spin like I did last November! Knowing we have the edge by only doing PA offers takes away any guilt.

What would be your advice to someone thinking of trying matched betting?

If you're thinking of trying matched betting, definitely take out the free trial offer which is what I did to test the water and really follow the videos step by step and you will see that it works.

Are there any aspects of Profit Accumulator you particularly like?

I love the forums on PA - there is always someone to help answer if you get stuck with something or to share your excitement or disappointment - I have never needed to contact support by email once in 2.5 years!
