Get 25% cashback on 'Buy It Now' purchases on eBay through Microsoft Live Search Cashback Program.

Microsoft recently started a cashback program: if you click through certain stores from their search engine, you get cash back on your purchases. Most stores are between 1%-5% off.

On Monday 06/16, someone noticed that Microsoft was offering 35% cashback on purchases made at eBay! At the time I did not post it, because I didn't believe it would work, as it definitely sounded too good to be true.

Now they lowered the cashback to 25%, which is still amazing! Being that Microsoft still has it listed, and they lowered it to 25%, (the cashback amount keeps on jumping around; it went down to 10% then up to 15%...) makes me think that perhaps it will work! Although, if Microsoft will follow through with this it will cost them millions and millions of dollars! I guess they really want people to start using their search engine. As you don't actually get the cash for 60 days, try this
at your own risk!

What makes this whole thing sound weirder is that eBay is not listed in Microsoft's list of stores.
