Chris, a member of Profit Accumulator from Glasgow, has used his earnings to save for a house. He shares his story...

How long have you been a member of PA?

I’ve been a member for about 18 months.

How did you hear about it - were you sceptical at first?

I was looking for an alternative to a second job. A friend of mine told me about matched betting. I researched into it, found Profit Accumulator and went from there.

How have you found it?

It’s a great way for me to use my free time to make some extra money.

What do you do with the profit you make?

I've tried to save as much of it as possible. The aim was to help me save for a house and, I'm delighted to say, I've been able to put a deposit down on my first property.

How much time do you spend on matched betting?

To be honest, quite a lot. I've had the target of using it to save for a house, so, in the past few months I was spending six or seven hours on a Saturday and Sunday. You don't have to spend that long, obviously. Now I've got the money together, I'll probably just do a few hours per week.

Why does matched betting appeal to you?

I like the fact it's my own thing - I can do it to suit me. No one is my boss, telling me when I've got to do it. There's loads of ways of making money online but I've never found one as profitable as matched betting. There's no way I could save for a house by completing online surveys, for example.

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

My advice to anyone looking to make a bit of extra money is to sign-up to the free trial, go through the instructions and then do as many offers as you can. It’s definitely a good way to make some extra cash.

Are there any aspects of Profit Accumulator you particularly like?

The instructional videos are so important when you're starting out. And, like most PA members, I think the forum is excellent. A great place to turn to if you ever get stuck.
