1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    i had the icon appear for 25% today. i bought something and was told i would get a message in my box about the cash back. said message arrived and i clicked on the link. but when i look in my account, it didn't confirm that everything is ok, it just says "0".

    should i be concerned?


    I have done the same thing for my last two transactions and like you I am also still at 0. I guess I will let this go for another week before I begin hassling with customer service.

    I maxed out my 12 transactions. Damn.

    I was under impression that it is 6 per account do you mean you have 2 Ebay accounts or did I miss the fine print and it is 12 per account ?

    ^it's 12 per account.

    SwedishFish: I had one that was canceled because they said the order had been refunded. I emailed customer service and it took 2-3 emails, but they eventually fixed it. If your transactions are valid on both eBay & Paypal, don't worry.

    You get a error message before you commit to buy if you exceeded your limit.

    Today I received an email for each of the transactions for which I've used the cashback and shortly thereafter my live.com cashback account was credited (pending) with the credit for each transaction. The emails read:

    Thanks for searching, shopping and saving with Microsoft Live Search cashback - The Search That Pays You Back!

    From your recent purchases, you have earned cashback savings!

    To view the details for this purchase or your other Live Search cashback transactions, sign into your Live Search cashback account. The transaction will be listed as pending for 60 days. After 60 days, we'll let you know that it's available for payment and you can get your cashback!


    Just putting it out there in case anyone else encounters the same lag...

    That lag is standard.
    This is my second time using CB.
    I think I have 50 days left as of today.

    I wasn't referring to the 60-day lag, but rather the lag between making a purchase and paying for it and having the credit appear in one's live.com cashback account. I apologize if that was unclear...

    It is 12 per account up to $2400. $200 maximum per purchase so if you maxed each purchase you'd hit the limit. If you don't hit the $2400 limit with those 12 purchases just create another ebay account as the $2400 is tied to the paypal account. The limit resets on January 1 (calendar year). Then you get another $2400 or whatever they decide to do. It's a great deal they got going on as it really helps everyone. Buyer gets great savings. Sellers can charge more. Ebay raised seller fees. Microsoft makes more off advertisers. Advertisers have more exposure (this can be argued as many, myself included, only uses live.com for the cashback and not so much as a browser). The cashback feature also works for quite a few other online retailers as well.

    One slick deal I saw on ebay was where the seller offered a $566 gift card/money order/cashiers check for the buy it now price of $666. The seller made $100 on the deal minus fees. The buyer paid $100 more for the card but got cashback of $200 (cashback was 30% so $666 was max). So the buyer ended up making $100 on the deal once they got their cashback. Creative thinking at its finest.
