One word of waring about Bing cash back: make sure you aren't running any adblock addon. I usually run Firefox with adblock running. When I make purchases and get the Bing cashback I always use a vanilla install of IE.

For Ebay + Bing Purchases I usually just go to Bing, type "Wii" into the search, and then click on the top sponsored link which usually says something like "Wii ebay.com Bing Cashback". It doesn't matter what you search for, just get to Ebay through Bing. You'll know Bing is active when you see a little green "mircosoft cashback" near the Ebay logo at the top. You'll also see the cashback amount when you pay (this is only true for Ebay). Oh, and be sure you already have a Paypal account since it is required for Bing cashback purchases at Ebay.

I believe it will be 10% with Ebay, Paypal, and Bing account.

The 10% Ebay cashback is already active. It is usually 8% as of late.

If you go to the "Gold Rush" promotion, it is listed as 10%. When you actually go to eBay, it has 10% there as well.

The nice thing about the eBay Bing cashback is that it is instant to your PayPal acount (or at least it has been for my other purchases this week).
Evidently cashback is only instant IF the seller uses eBay's checkout. The lowest price on k-x kits right now, prodigital2000, does NOT, which means you still have to pay with PayPal but there is a 60-day turnaround time from purchase to cashback being available. Just FYI.

Booo! I was all set to buy a K-x w/18-55 yesterday but got busy with Thanksgiving stuff. Woke up this morning to find that they sold out! They still have the white model but I'm not interested in that. Talked to them on the phone, and they won't have them back in until end of next week at the earliest. By then the 8-10% cash back on eBay may be gone. Bummer!

It has been 8% for a while so decent odds that it still will be in the future.

Ah, that's good to know. I saw on the Bing site that the Gold Rush savings end on December 2nd. Does that mean the 10% will end on 12/2, or the 8%? I'm confused. I don't know what is "Gold Rush", and what is "normal" cash back for eBay - if there is such a thing.

On the other hand, I've been looking at pics of the white K-x and it's beginning to grow on me.

The "bump" in cashback ends 12/2. I would guess it would go back to 8% though of course don't know for sure.

I'm seeing Bing offering 15% cashback on Walmart's price of $649.95 = $552.46. Very tempting....

for people that have used bing cashback, my payment is still pending; so, i am guessing that's why the cashback is still not showing up in my bing account, right? i'm always paranoid about stuff like this, ha!

You should be fine as long as you a) used buy it now and b) paid immediately with PayPal. It took 20-30 minutes to show up in my account as "pending" which is its status is at Bing until the 60-day wait is up.
