Double Sales
First, clear out the 'Junk' section of your inventory and then consign any item to it, proceed to any merchant in the game and navigate to their Junk page (it helps if it is empty on their side), now select your item and press (Y) to 'Sell all junk', quickly (and I stress quickly we're talking a small fraction of a second here) press (A), which would normally buy the item back. If done correctly the item will have sold but you will have received twice the money you should have, you can then buy it back and repeat the process as you see fit.

Obviously this trick will be more productive if the item you send to your 'Junk' page is relatively expensive. If you're low on pricey items; first perform this trick a few times with something cheap and then visit a trader with more impressive item(s) in their inventory, buy one and repeat the process, alternatively assuming you have the Dragon Plate armour from the free DLC you can use it as it sells for around 7G and change.

This really does work but can take a bit of trial and error before you nail it as it's a very swift manoeuvre, it helps to place your forefinger on (A) and your middle finger on (Y) and rock the pad in your grip, even once you've done it a few times it can be hard to catch again straight away.
Infinite Experience
Required: <a href="http://www.neoseeker.com/Games/cheats/XBOX360/dragon_age_origins.html#c80088" target="_blank" class="wikianchor">Double sales glitch</a> and you need Redcliffe to help with the war.

In your camp, there are some boxes with a few unfamiliar people that you haven't seen before. Having Redcliffe recruited, you can click the boxes and see that it says, "give supplies for Redcliffe." Click it after you use the Double sales glitch to boost your funds. Now, spam the A and X buttons on 30 Soveriegns. You should have leveled up a few times in the lower levels. In the higher levels, it takes a longer time to level up but still possible.
Infinite Money
This glitch works with any merchant and requires at least two of any item. Put the item you want you want to sell in the junk inventory. Talk to any merchant and go to the junk inventory on your side. Press Y quickly followed by A. The item should sold and be out of your inventory and the 'how many do you want to sell' screen should be up, this may take a few tries to get the timing right. Sell all the items, and he'll pay you again for the items. Then buy back the items and repeat. The more of the item you have, the more gold you get at ounce.
Unlimited money and experience
When you reach Lothering, gather three spring traps for Allison after she makes a request. Because this quest does not properly update, you can actually continue to give her a set of three traps repeatedly for 50 silver and some experience each time.
Unlimited XP
In Ostargar, there is a mission called Tainted Blood. Simply collect the three Vials of Darkspawn Blood but NOT the Grey Warden Treaties. Return to camp and talk to Duncan and report "We have the blood, but not the scrolls." This will exit out of the conversation, but WILL get the experience for the mission. Rinse and repeat until you are at the desired level. It takes very little time to shoot up to lvl 25(cap) if you press X to skip the conversations and speed up the process.
