Does anyone use the "bing cashback" for lens purchases?

Looking to pick up a somewhat pricey lens (the Sigma 70-200mm roughly 800 dollar lens), and was wondering if anyone has used the "bing cashback" for such a purchase. B&H, Adoroama, Abe's, any place else that may take this purchasing system?

Thanks.

use them when I can

I've used them for most of my lens purchases since the program began. Got $200 back when they were running 35% for ebay purchases last year.

Or, can anyone suggest another way to negotiate a lower price for a fairly expensive lens? Thanks.

I ve used the bing CB program extensively, both on ebay and adorama for photography.

got my almost new 50-135 and a new 16-50 for less than 450$ each - only way to justify those purchases.....

best to use internet explorer if you want to be extra sure of getting the cashback.

I keep hearing about this Bing, but when I go to Bing.com it's just a search engine.

How does this cashback work?

If you make a search for "crumpler" you can get 11% back.

I've used Bing multiple times. Got huge cashback on my K20D and Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8. I did buy them (new) off eBay though, so they are gray market.
