Microsoft Live Search cashback saves you money by giving you cashback savings based on a percentage of the product price for items that you find via Live Search. Cashback deals have a coin icon next to them. If you are looking for deals on specific items, you can search them out at the Live Search cashback site.
Funds in your cashback account can be withdrawn once the available balance is over $5. You can choose to be paid out via PayPal, direct debit or cheque. Savings are however limited to $2,500 every calendar year but even if you do reach that limit, that is an extra $2,500 in your pocket. The service is free to use and is only available to US residents.
Yes, this may be a ploy to get more people to use Live Search instead of other search engines such as Google, Yahoo but hey if you can save up to $2,500 per year by using Live now and then, what do you have to lose?
