Credit card interest
Today I was looking at my Mastercard statement and found out that I was charged some small interest fees and my card balance is set to paid automatically from my main account. So I called up the bank and she checked for me and found out that if I use the card for online gambling it could be that I am charged interest fee straight away since gambling transactions are considered as cash advance (like withdrawing from an ATM using a credit card).
So how do you guys go around this? Shall I use a debit card (much less secure IMO) or perhaps throw in extra cash in my credit card account so that I use my own money when depositing?+00December 22, 2015 at 11:24 am
New to matched betting?
My Matched Betting Academy is the best place to get started. Learning the fundamentals takes 10-15 minutes and you’ll make £15 in the process.

I use my card for mine as I’m seeing my matched betting as a way of helping with paying it off get charged a couple of percent on deposits. I know it goes against the grain but I usually try and put my winnings back on the card soon as possible to avoid interest. I generally leave 20-40 in will hills to cover 2 matches, 30 in 888 for a 20 pre match and 10 in play on a Saturday and around 100-150 in smarkets rest gets withdrawn. Keeps it away from my bank account too.
Some bookies charge for pay pal others don’t. I don’t think will hill doesn’t.+0Pavlon 3 December 22, 2015 at 11:58 am
I’ve had charges to my credit card for some bookies and not for others, but I tend to just go with my debit card.+0Kir 0 December 23, 2015 at 11:49 am
Yes I think it depends on the bookie else my bill would have been much higher. I will stick to topping up my credit card with my own funds to avoid this in the future.+0Shaun46 1 December 23, 2015 at 12:57 pm
