Stan James, BetChronicle and 888sport are all good. 188bet, gamebookers and paddies are pretty straightforward.
Taking your time is the most important thing in my opinion. I have read few horror stories, but i think the vast majority of errors can be avoided through not trying to rush things.
Getting things right is very important so take your time with that. Dont hang about too much though, get stuck in and increase your turnover is the most effective way to increase your enjoyment and your profits in my opinion.

This seems the best place to let people know what I have done so far.
Having got a Masters in Mathematics, including Statistics and Mathmetical Theory, this Matched Betting & Dutching malarky is rather interesting and compelling.
It is as simple as get the Math correct and watch the profits roll in!
My Hubby and my referer (3058BURGE) are rather 'miffed' that I have picked this up so quickly and, I think, I understand it! You must consider however, as I've said before my Hubby is a bit 'Thick', albeit in an endearing way!
So far I have picked up the £50 matched offer at Sportingbet, £50 for £50 at Betfred, £20 for £20 at Boylesports, £20 for £40 + £100 Season Ticket at Coral, £30 for £60 at Will Hill (Racing Post), £30 for £60 Ladbrokes (Racing Post), £200 Paddy Power (At The Races), £25 for £25 Totesport and £25 for £25 at Stan James...Phew!
Some of these are still in progress but I am expecting to have a profit in excess of £400 (Not including the season ticket offer).
The theory I have been using is to get as close a matches as possible for the qualifying bet to lose as little as possible (using comparison sites).
Then I bet my FREEBETS to, at worst come out with approximately 50%, or alternatively have a nice juicy three figure win, loosely speaking!
I find this method time efficient as with the Freebet I am less concerned about finding really close matches!
If anybody has any thoughts or comments on my strategy I would be very interested to hear them
Hi Baby, sounds like you have it down!
Here's some reading which might be of general interest to you:

I think your strategy sounds just right though, IMO it's always worth underlaying free bets (or any profitable arbs) because if you win at the book then they're more likely to limit you at some point in the future, so you want to put some kind of premium on winning at a bookmaker that's likely to do that. My article on underlaying (under the first link above) goes into more detail about that.
Have you got your head around dutching yet? Dutching is generally more profitable than laying off at Betfair (especially for odds around evens), and if you can get your head around dutching with asian handicaps then that is even more the case.

Pinnacle is a place worth getting into early in your career to that end, as are the major asians (12bet/188bet/sbo/m88, though one of those would be fine to start with). Not having to pay Betfair's commission really does make a big difference.
Quick fire today, signed up to both BetClic and 888Sport, also did well out of Paddies BOGOF correct score on the euro matches this week, £18 profit but better than nothing.
Well then, signed up to party bets via here, also skybet via a £30 freebet link from google which I have just used on a horse race and managed to make just pennies short of £30 profit, thanks to the betting alerts site, will complete party bets this weekend, favourable odds hopefully.
Has anyone been to Cashpoint for the 100% matched offer via Moneybookers?
If so, did you fund in GBP or did you fund in Euros?
I had a quick look on the site and the odds seem to take some searching in order to get a favourable match on Betfair.
Any info is greatly appreciated.
I did cashpoint quite some time ago and moneybookers was fine, the inplay markets were very good but the limits low and not sure if they are still arbable as I think a certain someone (u4ea I mean you! ha) single handidly killed it haha
I was looking a these a few days ago, and according to the terms the 100% bonus is not available to English users (I'm assuming you're English as you're asking about a GBP account!).
