Bargains Abound During Microsoft Live Search Cashback Back-to-School Deal Days


Consumers earn up to double the rewards for online purchases — just in time for back-to-school shopping.

REDMOND, Wash. — Aug. 2008

What: For a limited time starting today, Microsoft Corp. is offering big savings to consumers, in some cases up to double the cashback rewards on millions of products from hundreds of participating retailers, during back-to-school Deal Days at Live Search cashback (

Why: After the holiday season, back-to-school is the most important shopping season of the year. However, a recent survey from Deloitte found that during this back-to-school shopping season, 71 percent of households plan on spending less on back-to-school items than they have in previous years. With consumers feeling financial strain from higher gas and food prices, Live Search cashback is offering back-to-school shoppers extra savings to stretch their dollars further.

When: Back-to-school savings start today and will run for a limited time during the month of August.

How It Works: Online shoppers can search, shop and get cashback rebates from hundreds of participating online stores through the Microsoft Live Search cashback program, which launched in May. Current retailers include Barnes &,, Sears, Foot Locker and, among many others. This month, the cashback return is even higher with Deal Days. Here are a few examples of the bargains:

Rebate of 36 percent on Jordan Men’s AJF 12 basketball shoes from Foot Locker at

Rebate of 18 percent on Lenovo ThinkPad X61 Tablet PCs from at

Rebate of 30 percent on The North Face Doubletrack backpacks from eBags at

Consumers can save money each time they use Live Search cashback. For every qualifying purchase, the shopper will be sent an e-mail message confirming the Live Search cashback savings. Consumers’ cash can be claimed when their Live Search cashback balance hits at least $5, 60 days after the purchase. Microsoft will provide the rebate one of three ways: via PayPal, check or direct deposit into a bank account.
