OddsMonkey is the best UK matched betting service. It is simply up to date with profitable offers and a helpful community.
It’s what I have been using for over 2 years now, to make a consistent £500 per month from matched betting. OddsMonkey makes matched betting super easy.
Cost: £17.99 / month, plus free trial.

Smarkets is my sports exchange of preference when it comes to laying my bets.
Great odds, 2% commission and a very fast technology makes this my favourite betting exchange.
Sometimes I may take a punt and the odds there are much better than any high-street bookmaker.
They also do many commission-free promos for matched betting aficionados. Neat!
In other words, that’s £125 free money in the first 3 months plus another £100 for each £10,000 you spend every year. Not bad for getting paid to carry a credit card 🙂
There is a £25 annual fee which I’m happy to pay. Make sure you set up a Direct Debit and pay in full to avoid extra charges.
Similar to how Amex gives you money back on all purchases, TopCashback is what I use for online shopping, from theatre tickets to pet insurance etc.
Search on TopCashback buy on the merchant website as normally and get paid 🙂
Every time I travel abroad I ALWAYS use Transferwise to get the best exchange rate and pay zero fees.
Usually banks charge you their foreign exchange rate not the market – Google rate despite saying zero commissions. You pay the fee which is built in in the price of the exchange rate.
Last time I travelled I saved a 5% in exchange rate difference – in other words £308 in my pocket, not my bank’s pocket.
Oh I almost forgot! Here is a list of all my Financial Independence Resources such as books, blogs, podcasts etc. It’s what shapes Foxy Monkey and what I follow to dive deeper into the fascinating world of personal finance and investing.
