    use live.com to search for ebay items that are listed as "buy it now", pay with paypal, wait 90 days and receive cash back via paypal.

    Okay, maybe I'm just dense, but I've gone to live.com, and thrown in a few searches, but I don't see anything on ebay, just a bunch of random ass sites, WTF am I doing wrong?! :rofl:

    Type in "PowerBook" it should have an ebay thing as the top search. If not, they might have it shut down for a little while.

    Well, I see a bunch of cashback things, but it's usually only like 3% or so, what gives? I thought it was like 25%.

    That's how it supposed to work in theory.

    But I got jacked for $7-8, cause it said the seller refunded my money back. wtf. Luckily it wasn't too much.

    It only takes 60 days to get your money back, not 90. It goes to your live account and then you can transfer from there to your paypal account.
