View Full Version : Hot Deal: up to 25% cashback from MS for qualifying eBay purchases

What's up losers? Got a smokin' deal that needs to be shared with the masses. If you're wanting to take a chance buying stuff on eBay and have a PayPal account, you can earn yourself a 25% rebate back from Microsoft.

Here's what you do:

Use this link (http://slickdeals.net/?sduid=338555&sdtid=846962&sdfid=9&u2=http://anonym.to/?http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=cheap+wii&form=QBLH) and click on the very first entry, which should be for eBay. You'll then be redirected to eBay, and at the top of the screen will be a logo for the cashback program. Then search for whatever you want. Before you commit to a purchase, eBay will notify you if an item is eligible for cashback. If it is, complete the transaction through PayPal. A few minutes later, eBay will send you a message saying that you've earned cashback. Open the message and click on the redeem button. You'll be forwarded to Live Search, where you'll need to register an account. Do that, then specify how you want to be paid (PayPal would be easier/faster). The next day, you should receive an e-mail from MS saying that your cash is pending and will be available for you to withdraw in 60 days.

I just bought a GTX 280 from a seller. With cashback, the card will have cost $480 and change. It's a hell of a rebate offer and sure beats the traditional mail-in rebate bull**** most companies make you go through.

Thanks to Slickdeals, [H], and Resellerratings for the info.

Wow... wish I had enough money to buy something big.

Thanks for the heads up.

It says 10% cash back now though... is that right?

Weird. It was 25% yesterday, and I got the confirmation of a pending $160 for the card I bought yesterday. Probably best to keep an eye on it to see if it goes up. Apparently it was 35% at one point. Folks on Slickdeals were picking up PS3s, and who could blame them?

That is really cool, thanks for sharing, although it is showing 10% for me too, hopefully it will go up.

If I can get 25%, I'm getting a Dell 2408WFP.

Lol, this is kind of funny. You payed 480 with the cashback, while you can get a GTX 280 for $469 on newegg.com
