PLEASE READ THIS FAQ:

Very important message to everyone. Make sure your personal data located at address below is correct and up to date. I believe this is the reason microsoft had trouble paying me!! ~Bmr4life
http://billing.microsoft.com/


how come I can't see the banner? <-- YOU HAVE TO GO TO LIVE.COM NOT CASHBACK.LIVE.COM TO GET THE EBAY BANNER


Your ebay (and or paypal) email address and live.com email address do not have to be the same. It doesn't matter.


REMEMBER TO TEMPORARILY DISABLE ADBLOCK OR YOU WILL NOT SEE THE EBAY LIVE CASHBACK BANNER


Items to consider
  • Sony DSC-T300 Cam
  • Sony DSC-T70 Cam
  • Xbox 360
  • PSP
  • garmin nuvi
  • sony vaio
  • canon powershot
  • ipod touch
  • Nintendo DS
  • Dell XPS Laptop
  • Dell Desktops
  • Apple Macbook Pro
  • iPhone
  • Movado Watch


Can I use this system/code 6 times back to back? <-- Yes, if you've never used it before. You're allowed up to 6 uses per year,
and you can use it back to back for a total of 6 times. But make sure they are 6 separate sessions. Go to live.com & search again to start a new session


Live Search cashback rewards are not available on purchases of gift cards or gift certificates or on purchases you make from yourself or entities that you control or in collusion with other people. <-- thus paying more than face value is dangerous, because that gives M$ 60 days to say "sorry buddy you're an idiot", so don't pay more than face value for any gift card! It's just too risky. [CITATION NEEDED, PLEASE.]

how do I verify I am getting the 30% off? <-- On your checkout and confirmation pages before you pay, it will show you how much cash back money you should get back. If you don't see it, don't buy it!

Can I use this on ebay auctions or best offer without doing the buy it now? <-- NO

Do I get cashback on the shipping fees also? <-- NO

Does the pending cashback show up immediately after you click the message in ebay? <-- No, typically it will take anywhere from 12-48 hours to appear on your cashback.live.com account.


CASHBACK MONEY WILL BE SENT TO YOUR LIVE.COM CASH BACK ACCOUNT. IT WILL BE FROZEN FOR 60 DAYS AT WHICH TIME YOU CAN THEN TRANSFER THE CASHBACK TO YOUR PAYPAL ACCOUNT WHICH TAKES ANOTHER 7 TO 10 DAYS.


For those of you that are still having trouble with the link, search for the Wii on live search but make sure you search on the web link and not the livecashback link. The active 20% eBay link will be on top.


Past 35% Live cashback thread: CLICK!


Quote :
Q: A cashback reward isn't showing up in my account. What should I do?
A: Most cashback rewards appear as pending within a day or two, but occasionally a store may take longer to tell us about an eligible purchase. If you made a purchase more than two days ago that isn't displayed in your cashback account, contact us with your purchase details. We'll get back to you just as soon as we can.

Your cashback reward might not be showing up in your account for other reasons:

Your transaction might have failed because of an error during the purchase. Contact the merchant directly to confirm that the purchase was processed. If the merchant confirms that the purchase was processed, contact us for further help.

You might not have finished activating your account if this was your first time making a purchase that is eligible for cashback. To finish activating your account, look for an e-mail message that you should have received and that included a link for activating your account. Do one of the following:

* If you did not receive or cannot find the e-mail, click here to sign in and finish claiming your cashback.
* If you still have the e-mail, sign out of your cashback account, click the link in the e-mail message to activate your account, and sign in using your existing cashback account. After signing in, the purchase should show within two days.


You might not have activated your eBay.com account if this is your first time making a purchase from eBay that is eligible for cashback. To activate your eBay.com account:

1. Log out of your cashback account.
2. Go to www.ebay.com, log in, and click My Messages.
3. Look for an e-mail message from eBay with the subject, "You've earned cashback," and open it.
4. Click the Get Cash Back button in the body of the e-mail message.
5. When prompted to do so, log into the account you wish to associate all eBay cashback purchases with.
6. After signing in, the purchase should show up in your account within two days.


NOTE: If you do not have an email from eBay, please contact eBay support for assistance. You may also want to review separate urlhasbeenblocked and conditions to make sure that your eBay purchase was eligible for cashback savings.


You might have used a third-party alternative method of payment, such as Google Checkout or PayPal. If so, click here.

Once you click on the link off the live.com and get to eBay you can purchase anything with buy it now. Just search within eBay and you can get anything with buy it now!!!!!!!!!!!


List of searches that bring up the 30% off link

silver bar
silver eagle roll
notebook pc
nintendo wii
120gb 5400rpm zif
gateway laptop
500gb external
dell projector
airport express
Jeep CJ
Canon G9
Xbox 360
gold coin

blu ray


BE CAREFUL: There is a 12 purchase limit this time around! $200 max cashback per transaction.


To get your full benefit without overspending, you have to spend no more than $666.67 to get your full $200 Cashback.


Live cashback does not work with third party checkout systems; Buy.com, Auctiva, etc...


If you want to be automatically notified next time the cash back % is at a certain percent, go to http://www.abevoelker.com/livesearch/.


You can also go to http://www.taylorwilsdon.com/deal...ack-amount to find the current cash back %.



tl;dr recap:
Search via live.com rather than the live cashback search.

Any BIN item will work; not just the item initially searched for at live.com.
Cashback might be invalidated for GCs purchased above face value. YMMV.

Limit TWELVE transactions per ebay account.
Limit $200 cashback per transaction.
Limit $2500 per live cashback account.

Multiple ebay accounts can be used.
Multiple live cashback accounts might be YMMV, but seem to work.
Regardless, only one paypal account is needed.

You'll know that cashback is working because of the big banner at the top of ebay.
You'll know that cashback is still working because it will tell you the exact amount prior to purchase.

Ebay cashback can take a few days to show up in your live cashback account.

clear you cache, if it doesnt work, turn off your modem for 5-15 mins to renew you IP. It might work then.

MUCH thanks. Does anyone know how long you have after you "commit to buy" to complete payment and still be eligible for cashback?
