After a Black Friday blackout, Live Search is responding to the glitch and also offering a new update: Instant Cashback.
Cashback was down for about three hours last Friday and Live Search explained why with the following three reasons:
- A significant spike in traffic caused the system to go down for several hours on Friday
- The downtime was partly related to investigating the issue and partly to rebuilding and redeploying the databases and indexes that support Microsoft Live Search cashback.
- The issues that caused Friday's problem have been resolved. We're confident we won't have further problems.
Contact Live Search support if you want to recoup your Cashback monies.
The new Instant Cashback is available via PayPal for eBay purchases. It will not be available for all users and you'll only know if you're one of the lucky ones after you make a purchase. If you're not, then you'll still get your Cashback deal in 60 days per the original plan.
