I know, I’ve been absent again. January is always a bad health month for me. Anyone care to pay for my deviated septum surgery? … No? Okay.
Microsoft’s Live Search service is offering cash back on purchases made when using Live Search. You can find great deals on the products you want. They have links to the stores you trust: J&R (www.JR.com), Barnes & Noble (www.bn.com), Hewlett Packard (www.hp.com), and NewEgg (www.newegg.com). And, yes, they even have my favorite, TigerDirect (www.tigerdirect.com).
All you have to do is go to the Live Search site at http://search.live.com/cashback and search for the products you want to buy, then each time you click a Live Search cashback listing, you’ll find great deals on the product you chose from a variety of topnotch online vendors. Your results will list the cashback savings you’ll receive off the store price, and your final bottom-line price that includes tax and shipping costs.
Here are a few of the cashback percentages you can find:
- Barnes & Noble: 10%
- J&R: 7%
- TigerDirect: 5%
- Banana Republic: 8% (I have to be real hungry to eat a banana. –What? … They sell sweaters? … I don’t eat sweaters.)
- Barbecues.com: 7% (Can’t wait to fire up the grill again.)
- Cajun Supermarket: 5% (Just add a little cayenne pepper … ooo-wee!)
- Eddie Bauer: 5%
- Excellent Diamond Cutters: 2-10%
The list of stores connected to the Live Search cashback system is enormous. You can access a complete list of stores and the cashback amounts provided, and whether or not free shipping is included with your purchase.
When you search you’ll be able to compare and sort products by the bottom-line price, and then you can click the best deal to go to the store. Everything you buy during that store visit will be eligible for Live Search cashback.
On your first time using Live Search cashback, you’ll be asked for an email address so your cashback account can be setup for free. You can keep saving money each time you use Live Search cashback. Every time you make a qualifying purchase, they’ll send you an email to confirm your cashback savings.
Typically 60 days after your purchase you can claim your cash once your account has accumulated a minimum of $5.
