PayPal, the service that lets you make payments and transfer money via the internet to anyone that has an email address, has launched a new service that you should find amusing, if not useful. The service is called “Do Stuff for Money” and as the name so adequately points out, you can get your friends to, drum rolls please, do stuff for money. With the added tagline “because just asking isn’t always enough.”

The whole thing goes something like this: you visit Do Stuff for Money, and fill 4 fields:
1. Type in your first name
2. Type in your friend’s name
3. Specify how much money you are willing to spend
3. Say what you want that friend to do.

When you click the Send Offer button at the bottom, you can select one of two options:
1. Send your offer via Facebook
2. Send your offer via email.

The thing is that you could always send an email yourself and ask a friend to do something for you, with the promise that you will pay him for his actions. But the thing that makes it a bit more amusing is that Do Stuff for Money publicly displays what you asked/dared your friend to do.

Moving on, if spending money is not your idea of fun, perhaps saving money is. With Microsoft’s decision engine Bing and its cashback feature you can do just that – save money on online purchases. Bing cashback is easy as 1, 2, 3: Search, Shop and Save. Within Bing’s product search results or sponsored listings, click on any product or ad with the Bing cashback gleam, shown here, purchase the product through the merchant’s site, and get cashback. In most cases, you will have to wait 60 days to get your cashback, but after that period, you can get your cashback via PayPal, direct deposit to your bank account or via check mailed to you,” explains Director of Product Management, Bing, Raju Malhotra.
