    10% to 35% "Cashback" on Buy It Now items on Ebay

    Microsoft is promoting use of their "Live.com" site and offering discounts of 10% to 35% off all qualifying Ebay items that are listed with a "Buy It Now" option that are paid for using PayPal. The current discount is 20%, but it changes without notice. The search needs to originate from Live.com, and result in a qualifying Buy It Now purchase through Ebay, and needs to be paid for using PayPal. You will see the Microsoft Cashback symbol if the item qualifies....most "BIN" items qualify...the trick is to use the Live.com search to get an Ebay hit that has the MS Cashback symbol...from there, you can search Ebay for all kinds of qualifying items. Basically you need an ebay account, a paypal account, an MS live.com account (you can use an existing email account to open the live.com account). The eBay item must be a "Buy It Now" item. You can save up to $250 per transaction, and can use the discount 3 times per Ebay account.

    I've saved $118 on a desktop PC, $140 for my son's college laptop, and $250 on a Shop Fox W1677 w/free shipping...it's pretty slick. The details are pretty straight forward, the restrictions are generous, and the discounts are attractive IMHO.

    There's some explanation here, or on Fatwallet.com, Live.com, or on Ebay.

    Look for this pic:


    HTH!

    I was able to get the 25% cash back a new $200 toy, but eBay wouldn't allow me to also use the 10% off coupon that's available until July 29. (I think I used it already on a smaller purchase a week or so ago.) Ah well, a Work Sharp 3000 for $150 with free shipping ain't too bad.

    Used my deals on a cricut for the wife, a Kreg Foreman, and a Kreg clamping table - both my deals from utterguys.

    Probably good I cannot use it anymore or I would own a Domino and CT22 I bet.

    I've really enjoyed mine. I'm looking forward to this new attachment coming in September.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Randy. At this point, I don't have any blades wider than 2", but that will change if I get a bigger plane.
