Unplggd's Sales Calendar: Microsoft 20% Live Search Deal

When the going gets tough, we got your back. It's no secret there are some troubles with the economy right now; every cent counts and Craigslist is now everyone's best friend. However, eBay wants to be your friend, too. And let's not forget about Microsoft and Paypal. They're offering 20% cashback off any item of your choice - that's one heck of a deal.

Before you reap these benefits though, you'll need 3 things: a Microsoft cashback account, an eBay account, and a Paypal account.

The basics: Microsoft is giving you 20% of certain search inquiries via an eBay add that you can click through to get to eBay's Buy-It-Now for the item you searched for. You enter in "Wii" and there should be an ad right up top for you to click through. There, you can search for any item (doesn't have to be a Wii) and you should get 20% any item as long as it's under Buy-It-Now.

The rules: You can only get $200 back max per transaction, and only 6 cashback transactions per eBay account. 20% is a limited time only (it was 30% earlier this week, but only lasted a few days) and usually drops down to 8% if a number of people use this service.

So... that being said, let us know what kind of goodies you guys find. A new camera? A desktop monitor? Oh, the possibilities are endless!
