anyone else have this problem? I tried last night after doing a live search...I got my results and found what I wanted...

then when I tried to buy it I was told I reached my account limit and it wouldnt let me do it....but the thing is I had less than $400 in cashback rewards last year...I thought the limit was like $2000

whats up with MS cheating me out of my 13% off....

I think I remember reading that you can only use it on a total of 10 transactions. Check the rules. I'm almost sure that their was a limit on the number of transactions it applies to.

Just open another ebay account and buy the item, you can use the same paypal address. Just the ebay accounts are limited to 10

I think it's 12, I just looked the other day, but I could be wrong. I've only used it 3 times so far.

Its 12. They emailed me said I had 13 but I had looked up my account and it said I had 11. I had 3 or 4 failed but I don't know what that meant

is it the ebay account that's limited, or the live.com account? I recall seeing that you can sign up for multiples but can't remember which it is.

Its the transactions with the live account. Even if you cancel a transaction and get no cash it still counts against the 12 limit and it can take 2 months for it to come off the total. Its too late for me to add account to buy the amp now. I still think they are incorrect in the judgement but oh well

Are you guys 100% positive on that? Here's the rules:

The Microsoft Live Search Cashback Program provides cashback for up to 12 qualifying purchases per account on eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices. The amount of cashback will be determined by eBay, specified at the time of checkout on the "purchase review page" and equal to a percentage of the sale price (excluding shipping and handling fees, insurance fees and other such fees) ("Cashback Rewards"). The maximum amount of Cashback Rewards per qualifying purchase is $200.00 USD. In addition, all Cashback Rewards (including Cashback Rewards earned in connection with purchases made on websites other than eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices) are subject to the annual $2,500.00 per person cap set forth in the Program Terms.
That's really odd wording they use. It's written as though it's limited to the eBay account, not the Cashback account. I checked my Cashback acct and I've been paid on 12 and am pending on the 13th.

Guess I'll have to open a new Cashback acct just to be sure.

Oh and I just had a hell of a time to get the Cashback icon to show up on the top of the page. I used "alpine" "ps3" and no go. I finally got though on "canon camera". ****'s really screwy sometimes.

It's currently 13% under those terms.

Has anyone here been offered by eBay to be apart of their in-house incentive program? Don't bother if they offer, as it trumps the Live.com cash back, and is only 2%.
