Every month I try to make at least £100 extra money online. In August I made over £177. Here’s how I did it:
Various Sites – £110.63
If you’ve seen my recent blog post about working with a matched betting tutor it will come as no surprise that matched betting was my biggest source of extra income in August! I’ll be continuing my matched betting journey in September and hope to have a much larger figure to report next month.
Total – £110.63
Coral – £5.72
I had a couple of wins with free spins from the Coral Rewards Grabber. You use the grabber to select a symbol and reveal if you’ve won a prize. The prizes are usually free spins or casino bonuses. In August I had a few small wins and won £5.72.
Betfair* – £1.57
I also played Betfair’s Prize Pinball each day and won a small amount with some free spins.
Mecca Bingo – £16.75
Mecca Bingo are running a Sizzling Summer Wheel promotion where you can win free spins, cash prizes and bingo bonuses daily. I had a lot of small wins in August which all added up.
Buzz Bingo – £0.25
I also played a similar promotion with Buzz Bingo called the Bonus Spinner every day. You simply clicked to spin the wheel for the chance to win up to £100 cash, bingo bonuses and free spins.
BetFred – £0.80
I had a couple of free spins offers available to me when I signed up to BetFred while matched betting and had a small win.

Zilch* is a brand new virtual payment service which allows you to buy now and pay later. You’ll receive Zilch rewards which can be exchanged for Amazon vouchers by signing up (the first £5) and then referring friends and family (£5 for each successful referral). I signed up then referred a couple of friends so earned £15.00 worth of Amazon vouchers in August.
