Microsoft’s Live Search Cashback program is for real, and it saved me 20% on my new laptop.
I was initially skeptical of Microsoft’s claim that simply using their Live.com search engine would actually save me money, because quite honestly, it’s a pretty desperate business move for Microsoft to throw away cash in the hope of stealing traffic away from Google.
However, after a long wait from my $1200 dollar purchase back on July 18th, I finally have $240 bucks (a 20% cash back discount) that just arrived in my PayPal account.
If you’re not familiar with Microsoft’s newest promotion, I have included a brief excerpt from the Live Search Cashback site:
Microsoft Live Search cashback is “The Search That Pays You Back”. You will be able to earn cashback savings based on a percentage of the product price. Your savings will be paid to you via your choice of a deposit to your PayPal account, direct deposit to your bank account, or a check in the mail. It’s that simple!
How does it work?
Contrary to my past experiences with promotions like this, it was fairly simple just like it was advertised.
As a precautionary measure, take some time and read over the FAQ help section to familiarize yourself with the promotional details.
