Microsoft has begun offering cash to people who use its online wallet and identity software, a little-noticed promotion that comes as a rival effort led by some of its bitterest enemies gains momentum.
The software giant, which recently said it had $36 billion in cash, will write checks to people who buy $100 or more in goods using Passport Express Purchase. The program will dole out $20 rebates for each $100 spent using the online service, with total rebates capped at $100.
"All your purchases at participating merchants count, and the more you spend, the more you get," read a notice on Microsoft's MSN.com portal. "MSN will send you a check for up to $100 after the holidays."
So get shopping.... ;)
