The only thing I don't like about it is that searching for something might not always bring up the 30%. For example, when I typed in "Guitar Hero World Tour", no ebay link came up. When I typed in "Guitar Hero Playstation 3", the 30% ebay link came up, but then I had to sift through a lot of auctions to find the Guitar Hero World Tour ones....


Once you click through to ebay, you can run your own search. 30% applies to most BIN items. Some jewelry and other things don't get cashback. If the seller takes payment through a third party, that also invalidates the cashback, but a notice popped up letting me know. I just bought the same item (watch) from a valid seller.

Hope this works. I bought a complete Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 for the PS2 for $100 ($70 in 30% cashback). Then I'm going to put my crappier GS used manual-less version up for a Buy It Now of around $75.

The seller doesn't have a Paypal account, so the payment is being processed. Should I expect to get my Cashback message after the payment has been claimed? Every time I've done it in the past, it's been instant, so I'm a little concerned.

EDIT: Nevermind, got my message and I did not have to wait for the payment to be claimed.

Hahah, thanks for your concern. I've heard the news. Don't worry. I'm a collector, so I want to keep a hard copy. This coupled with the fact that I'm actually making a small profit by doing this makes it worth doing for me.

I'm planning on auctioning off my multiple copies of MvC2 for XBox soon so they retain value before a relaunch as downloadable content.

Jumped on a Halo 360 I had been looking at for a while. Missed out on the Hot Topic deal, but scoring one using this promo for the same price! Already got my confirmation via eBay and signed up for my Live cashback account. Great deal!

Might have to pick up some other items on ebay before this ends (or decreases) again!

Picked up Super Mario RPG and a 100 pack of 14mm DVD cases, both at the standard eBay price. (Don't really have the money to be buying a new console, or anything in that price range.)

There's a delay, as they have to receive confirmation from eBay. This can take a few days.

Sweet deal. Assuming the cashback comes through without a hitch, picked up a copy of Little Big Planet for $38.50 shipped!

Thanks for the heads up!

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong... I search for something on live.com...Click on the 30% off on ebay sponsor link at the top...find something I want and click buy it now and I see NOTHING about any cashback before committing to buy. I've tried several different items and all give me the same result.

I've already been burned on this once cause I bought Dead Space but misread and thought I would get notification after committing to buy it, but nothing. That was my bad for misreading. But it's not working for me regardless.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cool, I was able to pick up a used 360 elite system for $240. And that's before the 30% off. And the guy claims it's in mint condition and has a 30 day return policy.
Not bad, an elite for $170.
Now if I can just find a cheap transfer kit. I'm hoping I can convince him to send me the serial number so I can send in for the free kit.

Wow. This 30% off deal is good for sellers too. I put my MGS4 bundle PS3 on ebay with a BIN price of $600 just to see what would happen. I had until Thursday to take it back for a refund so I thought I'd try. It sold! I'm netting $60 after fees and shipping.

I bought a new PS3 for $290 and MGS4 for $30. Total $320 for the "bundle" I'm having to replace.

That means I got a new 80 gig PS3 for $230! Add in the MGS4 game I had to buy to replace the one I'm selling and I'm still only spending $260 after cashback. Sweet deal. I lose BC and 2 USB ports but I could buy a new PS2 and a USB hub for that price and still come out $150 ahead.

This deal is sweet , wish i had paid attention earlier. Bought Saints Row 2, Fallout 3 and Guitar Hero World Tour Guitar Bundle. I'm gonna have somewhere around 66 dollars cash back on all those so I am pretty happy. Games for around 44 dollars each and guitar hero bundle for 70.

SO does it sometimes take a day or so for the money to show up in as Pending?
My first 2 showed up in pending on the live site within a few minutes. But my 3rd purchase has not showed up yet.
At least they all showed up in the Ebay message section. I would hope that that means I'm pretty much covered.

Q: I don't see the cashback savings after I go to the store's site. Is it working?

A: Yes! When you click the Go to Store button on Live Search cashback and make an eligible purchase, the store will notify us and we will put your cashback savings in your account. Just in case your purchase is not properly reported, it's a good idea to save your order receipt. Go to top


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:
  • Log out of your cashback account.
  • Go to www.ebay.com, log in, and click My Messages.
  • Look for an e-mail message from eBay with the subject, "You've earned cashback," and open it.
  • Click the Get Cash Back button in the body of the e-mail message.
  • When prompted to do so, log into the account you wish to associate all eBay cashback purchases with.
  • 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 eBay terms and conditions to make sure that your eBay purchase was eligible for cashback savings.

Man, I'm really tempted to take advantage of this deal by getting a laptop, but I can't shake the feeling that there'll be better laptops around for the same price come Black Friday or Christmas.. Hmm. =\

The recent 30% off has been great so far...I nabbed a 20 GB mint PS3 for $160, a DS Lite for $40, and an 80 gb Zune for $70.

One item I used cashback for was returned and the cashback canceled. Does it still count against the 6-limit?

Well, it is fairly competitive (there are some huge sellers that do this, as you will see)...but monitor newly listed auctions with low buy it nows. I've had some tremendous scores doing that.

For example, this is what I nabbed recently, among others:

Crap. Just my luck, It looks like I made my 360 elite purchase with one of these people that take forever to respond to a general question (I was hoping he could send me the serial number so I coud get a head strart on sending for my free transfer kit from Microsoft). So, I'm guessing he'll be just as slow at responding to Microsoft live that the purchase was made. And thus it will take me a bunch of emails back and forth to Microsoft to try to get my 30%.
Thank you GuardianE for post 531. At least with the contact link, I'll be able to pursue this a bit. But I'll still give it another day or two before really getting up in arms about it.

I thought anything you buy to get the 30% back it had to be purchased in a Ebay Store? Not true?

Nope. Just has to be a Buy It Now purchase that accepts Paypal. Some auction types are exempt, such as eBay Motors.
