It’s ugly out there, folks.  Unemployment has hit a 25-year high, the Dow is at a 12-year low, and it’s impossible to go 10 minutes without hearing the term "Great Depression."  So if you’re looking to make any purchases online, the MSN Toolbar and its new "cashback-offer-detecting mechanism" may be just what the financial advisor ordered.

This development ties into the established Live Search cashback program.  Use Google, Yahoo, or Live to search for products – or even run queries through Craigslist – and according to a post on the official Live Search blog, "the toolbar will gleam an icon if there is cashback available for the item you searched for."

Click on the shiny bit, and you’ll be taken to a page featuring the cashback offer.

The idea is that you won’t miss a single opportunity to receive a discount.  And at the same time, of course, Microsoft gets a little bit of space on your computer screen and earns a warm spot in your heart.

It’s not a bad plan.  Feel free to speak up in the comments section if you intend to embrace it while shopping for water purification systems, beef jerky, and shotgun ammunition.

    Since we offer 20% off templatemonster products how can I make my site show up? It’s not cash back but the price is reduced as low as we’re allowed to go.

    Is there some special coding or do we need to feed the bots?

    Great post and very interesting. This is a boat I do not want to miss :)
