Money is finally rolling in from my October purchases. Got $350.00 yesterday and another $184.50 today. I was a little worried because one of my transactions took awhile to reach "Available" status (the countdown got to "-3 days remain" or something like that), then finally it became available, so it moved to "In process" on 12/05/08. I was worried when it still hadn't been rewarded by 12/15/08, which is over the 7 day normal time. But sure enough, yesterday, 12/16/08, it went to "Rewarded" status and moved to my Paypal account. I'm wondering if that 7 days is actually 7 BUSINESS days because there were exactly 7 business days between 12/05/08 and 12/16/08.

Anyway, enough babbling. I'm still amazed that this works and my brain can't figure out how Microsoft can in any way justify these kind of payouts. Maybe it's some sort of write-off for them.

Have an Onkyo 805 receiver and having trouble setting up Audyssey? HERE is a mini how-to.Click HERE to check out my comparison review of 5 different projection screen fabrics.

Is there any site that monitors the % Cashback discount without having to go thru all the steps?

Anyone have their cashback "fail"? It says that they tried to put it into my account for the last two days, but received some kind of error, and they will "keep trying". I've got $450 in failed status. Should I start to get concerned?

Hopefully all of the ebay repayments at once just overloaded their systems. Hopefully.

I havn't had any problems with mine. About a total of 1000 received over different various transactions. About 2-3 days ago there was a rebate of $5.xx received. That was my last rebate received.

Yup, I have the same failed message too. They tried 3 times and it failed. Do a search on google, this problem is huge. Tons of people are having the same failed message. I hope they get this resolved soon.

Yeah, I just tried to send a payment via Paypal to Rix Labs for some HDMI cable, and the authorization timed out. It's not so good when a payment processing service can't process payments. I'd short eBay on Monday if my company didn't have draconian compliance rules for trading.

Well I received $289.00 yesterday after days of the "failed" response-

Hopefully the worst is over, I have a few small payments coming up but nothing major-

I would like MS to reinstate this offer- probably cheaper than buying Yahoo....

Yeah, I've had about $500 come in over the past day, maybe $500 left, and immediately moved the refunded part back to my Checking Account. I don't want to see any more bugs take my money back.

Do you know if they changed the terms or how the payouts are processed since the last fiasco? ....I guess I could go look all this up myself.
