I just got an Aimpoint 3xmag and the twist off mount for it for $330 and $105 shipped

Normal price would be around $700 for both.. $435 shipped for both is a pretty good deal IMO. :D



Anyway, to get the discounts do the following:

1. Go to http://search.live.com
2. Search for whatever you want (I searched for "aimpoint")
3. Look for the "Live Search Cashback http://search.live.com/s/cbcoin.gif" link and click
4. Now that you are on eBay, search for whatever you want
5. Make sure you use the "Buy it now" feature to see if the item is eligible.
6. Once you click "buy it now", the following page will show you how much you will save (or tell you the item is not eligible for cashback)
7. Pay via PayPal, then go check your eBay inbox for a Cashback message and follow instructions
8. Wait 60 days, then get your 30% savings

Are you committed once you click the "buy it now" button? I would hate to have committed only to find out I wasn't getting much cash back.

Yes you are, once you confirm your bid.
I received my $100 back from an Aimpoint ML3 2MOA I bought after 74 days. (60 Days with Live, 14 Days with Paypal)

Just did a search for Magpul and found a number of eligible items including a UBR Stock for 30% cash back. Once you click the "Buy It Now" you will be able to see if the item is eligible before you commit to the purchase. It's important to note that this only applies to the first item purchased within 60 minutes after you run the live search. Cash back will not apply to any additional purchases per the T&C's.

I just bought a magpul CTR mil spec stock for $92 shipped and with my cashback it should come out to about $65. Not bad.

You can press "buy it now" , which will take you to the conformation page (this is where you will commit when you press submit). You can still look at the dollar amount you save before you actually commit on the 2nd page.

You mind sharing the seller's name since I'm hesitant to buy an aimpoint on ebay due to the amount of fakepoints. I wish I knew about this when I spent 130 on my troy buis, would have only spent 100 after getting the cashback.

I'm alittle confused now... I already bought a CTR. Does that mean I can buy 5 more items from ebay and get 30% off each item? Or does it have to be after 60 mins of the first purchase to qualify another "Session"? :confused:

Not mad at all man.

you can only earn a max of 250$ cashback I think Total on 1 Ebay account.
They changed the rules around once already. before you could only get cashback on up to 3 things.
they changed that to 6.

Thank you for your wonderful post. I'll just skip all the BS and point out that they were offering 5% cashback until today. Now it's back up to 30%. The point of this thread was to let people know that it is 30% again, and for those who haven't dont it before..a little how-to guide as well.

No problem,

according the live.com

Is there a limit on how much cashback savings I can get?

You can earn up to $2,500 in cashback savings every calendar year! We want cashback awards to go to a broad variety of consumers who search and shop on Live Search for their personal purchases. However, if a single purchase causes you to meet and also exceed this cap, you can still earn all the cashback savings associated with that purchase, provided that all other eligibility requirements are met.

Go try it yourself. You can buy up to 6 items and get a max of $200 back for each item.

$200 x 6 = $1200.

Go search for something over $800 and see how much you get back..

Thanks for the reminder fr0ng! Forgot about it since the last time I checked, Live offered only 8% discount! Just picked up a Burris FastFire for my USC. Gotta place an order for the HDPS top rail and LaRue Mini-red dot base tomorrow! Cheers!

I remember when they had it last time at 25% and I was kicking myself for not taking advantage of it.

When it finally came back at 30% I sat on it for a while checking everyday that it wouldn't go down. I was waiting for a great deal on an ACOG and finally found one.

Trijicon ACOG TAO1NSN, that is the one with back up irons and an amber night reticle, for about $660 shipped. I look forward to seeing my $195 cashback in 2 months. So with the cashback I got the ACOG for $465
