    Got a random tip that the Microsoft Live search is generating 35% off links.

    Go here:
    http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=nintendo+wii&form=QBRE

    Look at the first links returned in the sponsored section. Click on the link "Buy Nintendo wii. You may get 35% off with PayPal if eligible." This will load the MSFT Live cookie onto your computer.

    Here's some FAQ / rules to the 35% back ...

    I didn't try this, or dig through the rules, but it looks like it applies to all BIN purchases using PayPal. If you were going to BIN anyways, might as well give this a shot to see if you can save some loot!

    looks like you need to open up a Cashback account with Microsoft Live also ...

    sorry for the sketchy details, I'm trying to figure this all out myself.

    I just gave it a whirl. It works with stores outside of eBay as well. (Entertainment Earth is one of them)

    Depending on the retailer, you'll get up to 35% off. EE is only giving 9%

    the deal is dead, only gives 10%now. Really have to thank OP for this thread. Haven't check slickdeal/FW for a while and didn't find out about this deal till I see this thread

    Saved myself $208 on a PS3 MGS4 bundle.The BIN price is overpriced, but after 35% I still saved about $140 over the retail price + tax
