Microsoft will pay you to use Live Search

In an attempt to grab some more marketshare in the search engine market, Microsoft announced the Live Search cashback program. Customers who search and buy products from partners like eBay, Barnes & Noble, Overstock, Sears and Zappos through Microsoft Live Search will get ad-funded cash rebates.
The complete Live Search cashback product portfolio includes more than 10 million product offers from more than 700 merchants, including more than 13 of the top 40 U.S. retailers. The company also announced it has delivered a new Live Search travel destination, Live Search Farecast, making it easy for searchers to find the best travel deals on the Web.

With Live Search cashback, Microsoft helps merchants maximize their advertising investments and drive more sales by providing consumers with an added incentive to buy — a cash rebate. Participating merchants choose to pay Microsoft a CPA fee each time a customer completes a sale through Live Search cashback. The fee is a percentage of the retail price, and when that transaction is complete, Microsoft returns that fee to the consumer in the form of a cash rebate.
