Updated February 1st, 2016: As expected, the TurboTax/Quicken bundle deal has returned yet again for the 2016 tax season. If you’re a user of both TurboTax and Quicken software, then you’ll save up to an extra $20.00 to $50.00 when you buy/upgrade both of the new versions together at select retailers. And this year we’re lucky as we now have several new TurboTax-Quicken bundles available that we haven’t seen before. See below for the details on each of the options available to you.
Option #1 – The 2016 TurboTax-Quicken bundle from Amazon
For as long as we can remember, Amazon has their TurboTax-Quicken bundle deal each year running in January through April 15th. They post all of their bundles on separate pages depending on the configuration that you need. What makes this the most popular Intuit bundle is that there are no forms to send in and no extra coupon codes needed – Just add the qualifying items to your cart and the discount is automatically applied. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, this bundle will qualify for the free two-day shipping as well.
These are the bundles that you have to choose from:
- TurboTax Deluxe 2015 & Quicken Deluxe 2016
- TurboTax Deluxe 2015 & Quicken Premier 2016
- TurboTax Deluxe 2015 & Quicken for Mac 2016
- TurboTax Premier 2015 & Quicken Deluxe 2016
- TurboTax Premier 2015 & Quicken Premier 2016
- Turbotax Premier 2015 & Quicken for Mac 2016
- TurboTax Premier 2015 and Quicken Home & Business 2016
- TurboTax Home & Business 2015 and Quicken Home & Business 2016
Regardless of the one that you choose, you’ll be saving $20.00. Just keep in mind that sale prices do tend to change daily so the $20.00 savings is on top of the already discounted prices posted at Amazon.
Option #2 – Newegg’s TurboTax-Quicken Bundle Discount.
This is the second year that this bundle deal from Newegg is offered and again you’ll save $35.00 on all TurboTax-Quicken bundles. Similar to the Amazon bundle offer (listed above), this is an instant savings… So that means that there is no need to hassle with sending in any rebate forms. You’ll also get free Eggsaver shipping (4 to 7 business days depending on where you live) or, if you’re already a Premier member, free 3-day-or-less shipping.
We couldn’t find an expiration date listed for this offer but we expect the offer to last through tax season up until April 15th.
Option #3 – Get Quicken Starter 2016 for free or 50% off any of the other versions at Intuit.com (JUST EXPIRED).
This deal just expired for the 2016 tax season, but we are laving it up here so you see if this option makes sense for you next year. TurboTax has something called the TurboTax Advantage program - It’s a free program where you sign up to get TurboTax automatically each year when it’s released (aka, an auto-renew program). Maybe you’re interested in it, maybe not, but one of the perks of signing up and and getting TurboTax as an Advantage program member is that you’ll be able to get a copy of Quicken Starter Edition free or get 50% off any of the other Quicken products (this offer was valid through January 31st, 2016 but you can still sign up for next year). That means that you can save over $50.00 on Quicken 2016 depending on the version that you choose. Some other perks of the program include live phone support, free shipping the moment when the newest TurboTax is available, and a customized dashboard. Best of all, it doesn’t cost you anything more to buy TurboTax though this program than it normally would and you can cancel your membership AT ANY TIME! Here are the full offer details.
Option #4 – The TurboTax-Quicken bundle at Staples.
If you’ve taken advantage of the bundle deal at Staples in the past, then we’re sorry to say that it hasn’t returned for 2016. Too bad because it was a pretty good one – Last year it was an extra $40.00 off when you purchases select TurboTax and Quicken products int he same cart. Then only downside was that you actually had to send in a physical rebate form and wait for the $40.00 check to arrive in the mail. And we all know the problem with rebates that sometime they get lost or we forget to send them in on time. If this offer returns we’ll let you know.
