We all know the student budget can be tight at times, and let’s be honest, if we didn’t have to get a part time job we wouldn’t. After all, a part time job takes up valuable socialising hours, right?

Well, believe it or not, there is a way you can make money without working antisocial, sweaty hours at your local bar. In fact, you don’t have to leave your room! And I’m not talking £6 per hour either, more like £20-£25 per hour. Now anyone would be hard pushed to find a part time job which pays that much!

So, what is this mysterious money earner you say? Well, it’s called Matched Betting, and although ‘betting’ is in the title, it isn’t gambling at all. It is down to simple mathematics and is a perfectly legal way in which you can make money from free bookmaker offers, with no risk at all.

Too good to be true? I thought so too! That was until I joined a website called Profit Panda (www.profitpanda.co.uk) as they claimed I could earn £500 per month. As sceptical as I was at the time, I signed up to the premium account and started Matched Betting. It’s safe to say that the bold claims made by Profit Panda were not inaccurate and I started making money pretty much straight away. The website lists the bookmaker offers and gives step by step guides for every single one as well as all the ‘how to’ guides you could ever need. So, I couldn’t really go wrong!

Matched Betting has helped me buy all sorts since I started, including tickets to Glastonbury this year (it was awesome). But why am I telling you all of this? Well, if someone had told me about Matched Betting when I was at university so I didn’t have to sweat it out in Pizza Hut it would have been more than appreciated! Unlike me, you might rather get a part time job, but I’m pretty certain for most of you that isn’t the case. So I’d suggest giving it a go!
