You can easily get 20% off pretty much anything you buy if it’s part of Microsoft’s buyback program.
Here’s how you do it. Goto Live.com and search for anything you want to buy. Sometimes, you will have to enter the competitors product to get the discount. (As you can see above, you get 20% off for HP laptops by searching for Dell Laptops)
- I started my search at Live.com and searched for “cheap” along with some product name; I tried a few variations such as “cheap wii” and “cheap laptop” and both worked. (Nick pointed out in the comments that you should sign into Live before you search; I’d forgotten that I was signed into Live when I started. Thanks, Nick!)
- Looked for the link titled “Buy A Cheap Laptop. You may get XX% off with PayPal if eligible.” (This morning, it was 30%. As I type this, it’s 20%)
- Searched for the MSI Wind (Buy it Now items only), and purchased it using Paypal.
- Made sure that at every step of the way, I saw the icon for “Microsoft cashback” at the top of the screen.
