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.
Microsoft’s Live Search cashback program is brilliant insofar as it recognizes that compensation makes the world go ’round; a little money helps people do things they don’t like or change old habits. Only it appears that not everyone who’s participating the cashback program is receiving the key ingredient.
On Black Friday, Microsoft Live Search along with HP promised a 40% refund on items purchased in HP’s online store. The only problem was that the site for what was called Microsoft Live Search Cashback experienced an outage and then started delivering 3% refunds instead of 40%. Obviously, there were some unhappy campers as a result.
