Live Search Cashback Pays: Tip-of-the-Day #94


Live Search, a search engine much like Google, is featuring a new cashback program to incent usage. It's turned out to be a pretty cool way to save some money when you shop online.

Start by getting yourself in the habit of using Live Search when you're looking for something online (you can download a toolbar to make it easier to remember). Each time you click a Live Search cashback listing, your search results will clearly list the savings you'll get off the store price.

You can compare and sort products by the bottom-line price. 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 cashback, you'll be asked for an email address so you can quickly set up an account (it takes all of thirty seconds).

Then, every time you make a qualifying purchase, you are sent an email to confirm your cashback savings. When your balance reaches at least $5, you can claim your cash. If you're shopping on eBay and you check out with PayPal, PayPal will sometimes credit you the Live Search cashback in real time so you don't even have to wait. That's what happened when I bought that battery (per an earlier post about eBay).

Tip for eBay users: Shopping with cashback on eBay is a little different than you'd normally shop on eBay. Use Live Search to find the item first and then click through to that item on eBay. Make sure the cashback symbol is visible throughout the entire purchase process. Once you make your purchase on eBay, you'll receive an email from eBay asking you to complete the signup process for your cashback account, or, if you're already signed up you'll just see the balance increase in your existing account.

Just one more way to save real money when you're spending it. ;)
