I was reading and browsing through Microsoftâ€™s â€œLiveâ€ search which of course is in competition with companies such as Google. It seems that they are trying out a new program called Cashback at http://search.live.com/cashback/ where people can search for thousands of products from various merchants. Once the user makes a qualifying purchase, they will receive some form of credit.
I suppose the hope with that incentive is that people like us will start flocking over and use Live as our preferred search engine. Unfortunately, I was unable to test it out as it seems to be restricted to US residence only at this time. While I suppose it is a great way to save money, I donâ€™t know if that will necessarily persuade people from switching over.
I still use Google most of the time personally as the search results just seem to be better. Another way to save and make some money I suppose though.
