Microsoft Dangles Rebates for Web Shoppers

Attention shoppers: There may be bargains available at Microsoft's search engine.

In an attempt to undercut Google's standing as the most popular guide to the Web, Microsoft announced yesterday that it was offering cash incentives for people who use the company's often-overlooked search engine.

Live Search Cashback offers discounts to consumers who do their Internet shopping using the Microsoft engine. Typing "video cameras" into Live Search and then selecting a model, for example, a user can see merchants offering discounts from 2 to 9 percent.
