”Dang Scott, Microsoft cashback, how the heck did I miss that. What was that anyway?”

MS wanted a piece of of the search engine action, so while launching their Live.com search engine website, they offered incentives to many online purchases to people who originated their search through Live.com. Ebay was a participating site. The incentives varied periodically, but reached a max of 35% briefly, and stayed in the 25%-30% range for quite a while. There was a 60 day delay in receiving payment. You were allowed a max of $2500 cashback total, and $250 per transaction…I played it for every penny. It was a pretty sweet deal while it lasted. As much as like my saw, my favorite purchase was a Lowes $500 gift card on Ebay….bought below face value for $494 with proceeds from the rebates from my Cashback eligible purchases…I received an additional 25% Cashback on that purchase, then combined it with a 10% HD coupon towards a patio door from Lowes.

Live.com is now known as Bing.com.
