Microsoft Offering Money To Searchers

Microsoft is launching a new program that’ll actually pay you to use its search site.

“Microsoft Live Search Cash Back” will work with eBay and PayPal to offer users cash for searching for products on Microsoft Live, then making a purchase from a resulting site. It will offer anywhere from two to 30 percent of the total price back. Barnes and Noble, Sears, and Home Depot are already on-board.

Microsoft will require you to register for an account to be eligible.

“We are investing to differentiate in vertical experiences and to disrupt the current model,” Microsoft’s official statement reads.

“We are incredibly desperate to lure people away from Google and thought offering them a few bucks might help,” our high-tech software translated.
