15% Cashback at Tiger Direct Through Bing (Up From 8.2%)

June 5, 2009 · 5 comments


Update, 6.12.10: The current best rate for Tiger Direct on Bing Cashback is 12%; no hidden keywords are triggering ads featuring a higher rate. Read for more information on Bing Cashback closing and alternatives to Bing Cashback.
Bing Cashback’s regular cashback rate for popular electronics retailer TigerDirect.com, if you go through the main portal site, is 5%. However, using the Bing.com search engine to find the secret bonus rate (keyword : laptop) had been bringing it up to 8.2%. Now they’ve bumped up Tiger Direct’s cashback rate to an amazing 15%! Go to Bing.com and search for laptop, look for the sponsored result (with a gold coin beside it) offering 15% at TigerDirect, and click through to activate cash back! (Don’t see it immediately? Refresh the page a time or two!)
Electronics sites usually pay in the 2-3% cashback range, so this is a fantastic rate. Be sure you compare prices before you buy, though, because it’s not a deal if it’s over 15% cheaper elsewhere! And remember to factor in sales tax (Tiger Direct only charges it to residents of FL, IL, NC, and TX) and shipping, too.

I can’t see how this TigerDirect 15% rebate could work — If you click “Bing Cashback,” you are not prompted for your e-mail address.
Bing Cashback works by getting your e-mail address: So if they don’t do that, how will Tiger/Microsoft know that you took the rebate?
Has anyone actually tried it?
Seems possibly broken or untested by Microsoft.

Your Bing Cashback will be displayed on the screen when you’ve added an item to your cart. I suppose it’ll be sent to the address you use for your TigerDirect order. Haven’t placed an order yet so I’m not sure.

Worked for me! What I did was 1) Sign into Bing before searching for “Laptop” (make sure ad block, etc is disabled.. I used IE just to be on the safe side). If you had a live cashback account, use the same one
2) Make sure you see the “Bing” logo on the page you enter your credit card info. MAKE SURE your email address is the same that you use for your cashback account!
3) At the bottom of the payment page, there’s one box to check the says you agree w/ Tiger Direct terms, blah blah.. and the one below that says that it’s ok for TD to forward your info to Microsoft. Make sure both are checked!
After you hit the finalize button, your order will go through, and you’ll see a page that has your order number, and says how much cashback your order qualifies for.
Click the hyperlink that says “Click here to claim”, and you should be taken to a new window that lets you re sign in into your Bing.com account. Do that, and you’ll see the 15% pending!
Whatever you do, make sure that the search in Bing and the actual purchase take place in the same window, same tab, etc!
Hope that helps!

Looks like it’s gone. 8.3%, and I was just about to order a netbook. At $25-30 difference, I think I’ll wait for 15% again :-(

I’m not sure why but this web site is loading
very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?
I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
