Bet with decimal odds that are above 100 as ordinary arb.
If it loses there is profit from arb + free bet counts as profit too.
If it wins, on those odds it does not matter that stake is not returned because its only 1% loss which is covered from profit from arb

If you bet 10 euro freebet at odds 100, you can lay it at betfair 9.9 eiros at 100 for 9 eiros profit .
If you bet 10 euro at odds 2, you can lay it at betfair only 5 euros at odds 2 and get 4.9 eiros profit.

Point is - use maximum high odds you can afford.

You want to bet the freeplay on a huge underdog, and then scalp against it at another book.  SBR has a freeplay calculator I find quite useful. 

Some books will limit the odds you can take on a freeplay.  If that is the case, see if you can split it 8 ways and bet every combination in a 3-game parlay.  If it pays 6-1 you'll convert 75% of your freeplay to cash.
Peace,
Bull
