Internet Explorer 9 Jump List Deals: Free Hulu Plus, Groupon & More

By  |  4 Comments

Microsoft has just launched Internet Explorer 9, the company’s latest web browser, which has a collection of new features including the ability to pin web pages to your Windows 7 Taskbar and is offering a collection of deals to users who try out the new Jump List feature in IE 9.

Once pinned to your taskbar, the pages act more like a program than a webpage, delivering a unique look and the ability to right click and access actions from the jump list. These deals can only be accessed through Internet Explorer 9, which is available as a free download.

The deals from Hulu Plus, eBay and other websites are designed to show off the new Taskbar integration and as such can only be accessed by pinning the website to the taskbar.

The current Windows 7 Jump List deals include:

  • Groupon - Purchase a deal through the Jump list and receive $5 in Groupon Bucks
  • GILT Groupe – purchase $250 from Gilt to receive a free Xbox 360 4GB Standard Console, Samsung Focus with Windows Phone 7, or Xbox 360 Kinect 4GB Console Bundle
  • Slacker - a free month of Slacker Radio Plus
  • Hulu – a free month of Hulu Plus (Starts March 28th)
  • eBay – 8% extra eBay bucks in April and $5 discount in May for users coming from the Jump List.

These deals are a nice way to learn about the new features in Internet Explorer 9, but more than that, they are just really good deals. The Gilt deal has us contemplating a wardrobe upgrade and we are already looking forward to our Slacker and Hulu free trial months..

    Hello, Neat post. There’s a problem with your website in web explorer, might test this? IE still is the market chief and a large component of other people will leave out your great writing due to this problem.
