Just ordered an Aimpoint CompM4.  Why?  Because I ended up paying same for it as a regular price CompM2!  How?  I searched for Aimpoint from the Live.com main page and clicked on the Ebay ad link at the top of the page.  Sinkholesale has the M4 for a Buy Now price of $624.  If you buy now and pay with paypal, you will get 25% back from the purchase price.  That makes it $468!  There are all kinds of optics this deal applies to, not just through that dealer and not just Aimpoints.

Caveats:
-You have to search, buy, and pay all within 60 minutes for the 25% to be applied to the sale.
-You have to have a live.com account (hotmail, messenger, etc...) to get the rebate
-It will take up to 60 days to get the 25% back from the sale, but you can get paid back with a check if you want

Just wanted to share this because I almost bought a scope without doing this, but now I ended up getting more than I was expecting.  If you're in the market to buy right now...DO IT!

I have tried this, but when I try to create my cashback account, it keeps saying that they are having technical difficulties. HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM?

Yes, in fact I had this problem.  For some reason you cannot create a Live.com account if you are behind a firewall router which masks your internet connection through a proxy.  Cisco routers do this, mine gave me this problem.  I had to connect my laptop directly to by cable router to create the account, then it was fine.  I hope Microsoft understands that they are excluding 80% of internet users by doing this.  It's also kind of scary because what it implies is that they are somehow communicating directly with your PC OUTSIDE of HTTP...they should know better.  Sorry for the geeky answer.

I am very computer illiterate. So even though I know you helped me, I would not know how to do what you did.  My router is a Motorola (I think).
