hr block gift card refund offer

Updated January 4th, 2016: With tax season heating up, H&R Block is working hard to beat down it’s #1 rival in the digital tax software space, TurboTax. This year they’ve introduced a bonus refund offer that is very similar to TurboTax’s offer from last year where you could get up to 10% of your Federal refund back on the form of a gift card. And unlike TurboTax’s which only gave you the option of getting a Amazon gift card, with H&R Block at Home you can choose to get one or several from over 40 different stores.

Once you’re ready to file, you will have the option to choose to receive either part or all of your Federal tax refund (in increment of $100) in the form of a store gift card. So for example if you are expecting $2,800 back, the average refined received by families in 2015, then you’ll get $280 extra added on your gift card if you elect to have the entire amount added onto it. You have 40 stores to choose from including Amazon, Best Buy, Home Depot, iTunes, and Nordstrom.

Which products qualify?

All of H&R Block’s software and online products sold at will qualify for this deal. Just keep in mind that not all products give you the save gift crd refund percentage. Here’s the breakdown:
