Imagine the brainstorming session for that one: "Hey, remember the focus group where the guy said that our products were so shitty that we'd have to pay him to use them....?"

Our pals at Microsoft want to promote their www.live.com search engine.

If you have a Passport/Hotmail/XBL ID you can sign in with it at live.com.

Then search for what you want. The top of the results page will be the sponsored links. The first one should be an eBay link, which you can click on and be taken to a search at eBay that is as specific as your search. Or if you have something that you are watching at eBay that's fine too(saved searches are fine too). You just have to get to eBay via that live.com link.

Also, it has to be a Buy It Now auction, and your eBay and PayPal accounts must be in good standing.

Anyway, with in one hour of your search, Buy It Now.

You will get 25% back via PayPal from Microsoft after 60 long days.

I just found out about this, while looking at Intel minis on eBay. Guy that was selling his, wanted something like $650 for a 1.66/2GB mini and some other things, but I found one that was cheaper and used the live.com deal on it. So in early January, I should be getting some bucks back from MS for buying a Mac! Laughing



There is some fine print about only redeeming your loot via your PayPal account. As to whether this means you can only spend it with merchants that accept PayPal, or with a PayPal debit card or eBay auctions, OR if you can transfer your loot to your linked bank accounts is something I'm not sure of. But Barnes and Noble(bn.com not the brick and mortars), as well as Monoprice both accept PayPal, as well as some other online merchants.

[edit - Also, it doesn't count for the purchase of vehicles, anything from express, or Half, or using a third party check out system(but eBay only lets you use PayPal now anyway...). ]


I used my Live Cashback and e-bay 10% off coupon to get my new 1.83 Mini Core 2 Duo for around $375.00. Great deal.

Looks like something I missed when reading the cashback rules.

You can only have twelve sessions after you start doing this. So if you make a purchase, don't go to eBay to make another purchase unless you are gonna pull the trigger!
