Matched Betting Welcome Offers and Reload Offers

Learn How to Complete Your Matched Betting Welcome Offers and Re-load Offers

This post provides helpful information and guidance on the matched betting offers available to you when you start.
We look at matched betting welcome (sign-up) offers and matched betting reload and refund offers. These are the bread and butter of matched betting, especially when a beginner.
We also provide details of the Smarkets welcome offer, which is worth considering when setting up your betting exchange account.

The benefit of a matched betting service such as Profit Accumulator or OddsMonkey is that they identify all the offers listed bookmaker by bookmaker/offer by offer, so you can work through them methodically and earn consistent profit.

Before that, let’s introduce what the welcome offers are all about, so you know where to begin!

This guide gives you a flavour of what to expect, including some specific examples of matched betting welcome offers, perfect to work through when you start, and then matched betting reload offers for continuing profit.

Matched betting refund offers are also explained, as they are common but slightly different forms of offer.

We flag the Smarkets welcome offer as it provides a little further incentive when starting.

Matched Betting Welcome Offers:
Bet x, Get X

Your bread and butter matched betting welcome offers are Bet X (qualifying bet), and Get X (free bet).
This kind of offer will often be something like: new customers, bet £10 and get £20 in free bets.
Example offers from Coral and bet365 are below.

The post guides you through all of the specific steps for your first matched betting profit. We have also compiled more detail on the basic steps for matched betting sports offers.

Matched Betting Reload offers

These offers are regularly sent to you by email or appear as pop-ups on bookmaker sites. They offer real value to you after you have finished with your welcome offers.
The bet365 matched betting reload offer detailed below resulted in over £7.50 in profit. It took under 5 minutes to complete from receiving the email (sent directly following the bookmakers’ welcome offers completion a month or two earlier).
Top tip – Be careful to check the terms and conditions for the offer, and if you are starting out, it’s best to avoid anything with high wagering requirements as these can be difficult to complete, costly and more likely to result in mistakes when you are less experienced.
